1 melissa and Timothy OUR ADOPTION PROFILE

2 hi! We are Melissa and Timothy We truly admire your strength, love and courage to do what you feel is best for your baby. We really want you to know we appreciate this chance to introduce ourselves to you and the opportunity to be considered as parents to your child. We hope after you read our letter you will feel assured that with all of us working together as a team, your baby will always have a loving, stable, safe, healthy and happy life. We would love to talk or meet you and answer any questions you may have if you would like.

3 why we chose adoption After struggling with infertility for 5 years, and after 5 failed attempts, we realized that maybe we weren t supposed to have our family that way. We took some time to allow ourselves to heal from the stress and pain of infertility and we are now confident that we are meant to become a family through adoption. We are truly thankful for birth parents who are willing to give us a chance to love and parent their child. It is because of their love and sacrifice for their child that we would have the opportunity to be parents. Timothy has a grown daughter from a previous relationship who lives in Texas with her mother, but Melissa has never had the opportunity to be a mom. Being a mother has always been a dream of hers. We would love to raise a child together and experience the joys of parenthood. Thank you for considering making our dream of family a reality. We chose a Texas agency because we love Texas! Timothy s family is from Mexico and settled in Texas. We have lots of wonderful family there. Please know that we are open to visits with you when we come to visit family in Texas if you are comfortable with that. sydney, brian, mary, matthew and justin

4 about u s wedding day fun We have been happily married for over 3 years and have known each other since we became best friends at the age of 12. I would say our story is one of true love and friendship. We grew up in the same neighborhood, just two streets apart. We became best friends as young teens and dated throughout high school. After school we both ended up on different ends of the country and we lost touch for many years. About 6 years ago we reunited and it like we had never been apart and we were teenagers again! From that point on, we never left each other s side. We have a strong marriage built on mutual love and respect. We tackle everything as a team, and we feel that way about parenting as well. Your child will always have two involved parents. He or she and will always have our love and support; no matter what. Timothy has a secure job with the Federal Government with wonderful benefits. His job is flexible so he will able to take off several weeks to bond with your child as well as attend doctor visits, school events and family vacations in the future. Timothy s schedule allows him to come home early in the afternoon to eat dinner together and have family time. Melissa worked in the past as a preschool teacher and has most recently worked the last few years in the banking and financial industry. Together we have chosen for her to be a stay-at-home full-time mom and devote her full attention to your child and their needs. We are very thankful for the ability to have one of us to be at home full-time.

5 family We want you to know how much we value family and we both know how very important family roots are. Your child will always know where they came from and will never have to wonder to about their birth family or the sacrifices you made for them. We will always support communication and be supportive for your child to have a relationship with you and your family if you wish. Your baby will be loved by every member in our family. Besides our large extended family, Melissa s brother and her best friend (his wife) and niece lives just a short drive away. We have a special bond with our 15 year old niece and have enjoyed watching her grow into lovely young lady from a sweet little baby. She is super excited at the thought of us adopting a child. Melissa s sisters and friends have young children and they are looking forward to trips to the aquarium and zoo together. Timothy s best friend lives right down the road from us and has two children that would love to have a new playmate to go on the fishing boat with. We believe in family tradition, we will honor your family traditions, share our family s traditions with your child and make new traditions together. timothy and his niece melissa and her sisters

7 our home our backyard in winter where WE LIVE We live in Maryland in a quiet, safe neighborhood, where we have wonderful neighbors. We have a room already set up for your child with a beautiful crib with bright happy colors, books to read and toys to play with. Our home has a large kitchen where we hang out and cook as a family. We also have a nice fenced in yard and have lots of wonderful children that your child could play with. We are close to Virginia as well as Washington DC. It s the best of all worlds being able to access everything near and far. We live far enough from the city to have peace and quiet but can easily go into the city. We have access to well-known museums and activities, many geared towards kids. We have a local library that has story time and lots of fun activities for children. Right down the road from our home is are many parks and play areas. There are lots of great places to fish in our area as well as access to any water activity you could imagine. In fact we live within 5 miles of the closest beach. The views are amazing and we really love it.

9 cherry picking at the beach the FUTURE Your child will always know that your decision was made out of your true love for them and their future. We will always believe in your child s dreams and will fully support whatever they choose to do with their future. We are financially stable and have already set up a college fund if your child decides they would like to attend college or trade school. We believe in education and promise to you that we will always make sure your child has the best education possible. We have some amazing schools/colleges in our area that will not only give them a great education, but will prepare your child for the future and help them prepare for whatever it is they want to be in the future. Also, Timothy is bilingual and speaks English and Spanish. We would love to help your child learn any language they desire.

10 our COMMITMENT Our promise to you is that your baby will be loved, protected and given the best opportunities to have an amazing life. We promise to be kind, patient and to love your baby unconditionally. Your baby will be part of a family that sticks together through good times and bad! We promise to make sure your baby knows that you love him or her and that his or her thoughts of you will always be positive and loving. We want to give your baby a life filled with love, stability, happiness, and success. We really appreciate you taking the time to learn a bit about us and consider us for such an important decision. We are truly grateful for this opportunity. Please contact The Adoption Alliance at if you wish to get into contact with us. We hope to hear from you! With respect and admiration, MELISSA AND TIMOTHY
