Hello! We are Melanie and Scott. We are so grateful that you have taken the time to learn more about us and our hopes for the future as you make such an important decision. We hope these words, along with our attached profile book, give you a glimpse into what it would be like to be a member of our loving family, the values that shaped who we are and the nurturing environment in which we plan to raise our child.
We have both been blessed with tight-knit families who gifted us with wonderful upbringings. Melanie was born and raised in Florida with her parents and younger sister. Scott, on the other hand, is an only child who moved to Florida from Massachusetts, with his parents, when he was ten years old. We have been happily married for six years but inseparable since we started dating in college, nearly twelve years ago. We have always known that we wanted to become parents and are beyond thrilled to begin this chapter of our lives!
We currently live in sunny South Florida, just a few miles from the beach in a community that is perfect for raising a child. We are surrounded by great schools, parks, walking trails, sporting venues and are not too far from Walt Disney World – a place we visit often! Most importantly, we live close to our parents, Melanie’s sister and brother-in-law, and many extended relatives which makes family gatherings an indispensable part of our lives. Our families are incredibly supportive, generous and the most loving people we know.
Scott has a stable and successful career in the tech industry. Melanie formerly worked in retail but has now chosen to dedicate all of her time to being the very best mother to our future child. Our dog, Rocky, who has been a huge part of our lives for ten years, is easily the sweetest dog you will ever meet.
Our promise to each other and to you is that we will always provide a happy, loving, caring and supportive home to our child. We want our child to feel safe, cared for and excited in the idea that the possibilities for them are truly endless, as is the love we will have for them.
We admire your bravery as you make this difficult decision and we are grateful that you have given us a chance to share our story with you. Words cannot express how thankful we are to have the opportunity to be considered as adoptive parents for your child.
