Hi! Our names are Kyle and Melissa. Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit more about our family. As you know, we are hoping to add a child to our family through the miracle of adoption. We first met back in college and married soon after. Initially we focused on our careers which at the time were in arts and education, with Kyle working as a college theatre professor and actor, and Melissa working with museums and historic sites. Over the years, we tried unsuccessfully to overcome infertility and have a family. Ultimately, what we came to realize was that what had seemed so unfair was actually God’s gift when we adopted our son Brandon. He was the son we were meant to have, without a shadow of a doubt. The past 11 years have brought more laughs, love and joy than we could have ever imagined. We’ve changed career paths along the way, set down roots, and are ready to add to our family once again through adoption.
So what is it like to be a member of our family? Well, if a little boy sporting his Titans jersey proudly while making up a blues tune on his harmonica whenever crossing the Mississippi paints a picture you find funny but sweet, we may be the right family for your child! We can tell you that we love being Brandon's parents more than anything, and that we look forward to a chance to add a little brother or sister for Brandon to our family’s life story.
We want you to know that we live in a neighborhood with lots of families with young children and have steady jobs that provide a good living. We have a strong background in education, a lot of life experience, and a loving extended family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We firmly believe in raising a child with positive discipline and many opportunities to discover and explore their interests.
We can say without hesitation that we have a huge amount of respect and admiration for you and the care with which you are planning for your child. Your love, courage and selflessness are obvious given that you are looking at all of your options. We hope by looking at our photos and learning about our lives you will find comfort in knowing how much we would treasure and love our new child and do our best for him or her.
Kyle & Melissa
