Dear Birth Mother,
We cannot wait for the next chapter in our lives to begin by adding to our family! Having children and sharing our love has always been important to us. We are excited to introduce ourselves and give you a glimpse into our lives to help you imagine your child as a part of our family. We hope that through this website you are able to see the love we have for family, friends, and each other, as well as for our future blessing.
Love, Melvin & Danielle
We’ve been married for 11 years. Melvin plays the bass guitar, and in April of 2009, he was invited by a family member to be a guest musician for the church Danielle attended. After meeting we connected instantly and quickly became good friends. Four months later we were saying “I Do!” From the very beginning, we knew our relationship was God-ordained because we felt a sense of love, comfort, and peace like never before when we were together. Each day brings new challenges, but we remain committed to God and committed to one another.
We love to travel to new destinations every year. We love to watch movies, be adventurous, and relax on the beach together. We also enjoy good food, playing games, and spending time with family. As parents, we look forward to game nights, pizza Friday nights, planning family vacations, and sharing our traditions.
Melvin is a wonderful person and I am thankful to God that I get to call him my husband. He is the most loving, caring, patient, and selfless person that I know. Melvin is also quite a character, he’s always making me laugh and smile at his silly jokes. During the day, Melvin works in the field of Information Technology. On the weekend, he’s an amazing chef and being from the Caribbean, he often cooks dishes native to his country.
Melvin enjoys traveling, relaxing, playing the bass guitar, going to the beach, going to the movie theatre, and watching Gold Rush. His big heart for others will make him a wonderful father. Our children will be his top priority and will be loved to the ends of the earth and back again. Melvin is excited to teach our child how to play the bass guitar, how to grill, and how to code.
Danielle is easily the most loving and caring person I know. Her love for children is one of the most outbound expressions of her life. Seeing the way, she treats her nieces and nephews like they are her own, spending the extra time with, and giving her students the additional attention, they deserve shows how far her love for children extends.
Danielle is also a very caring wife who loves to cook, read books and catch up on tv shows in her spare time. Danielle always takes the time out to ensure that our home always feels like a home and I know that she going to be a great mom. She is so excited to share her love with our children. Danielle is looking forward to teaching our child how to read and bake.
We live in a 3-bedroom home with an open concept which is great for entertaining. We also have a nice backyard for playtime. We look forward to hosting future birthday events and weekend BBQ get-togethers. Our home is in a family friendly neighborhood with an elementary school, walking trails and a park within walking distance. We hope to enjoy and explore the many activities and events that our city offers with your child.
Our family is an important part of who we are as individuals. Danielle is the second oldest of six siblings and Melvin is the oldest of three siblings. Although we live miles apart, we remain in close contact with our family. During the summer months, our grandmother and three of our nephews visit. We also journey home to visit loved ones for holidays, and special occasions.
Both our families are excited about our adoption plans. They are looking forward to spending time with your child and creating a lifetime of memories!
