Just so you know a little more about us. We started dating in February 2007, we fell pretty hard for each other! We are both very strong, independent women. We knew immediately that we were home to each other. About a year later, Noelle sold her house and moved in with Trina. We haven't been apart since! We married in 2015 on the first day it was legal in our state. We have a very drama free life, we don't argue or allow negativity in our home. We laugh more than normal people! We do disagree sometimes (mainly about paint colors!) but we are both very willing to compromise and know that we both make decisions that are in the best interest of our family. There is nothing we can't accomplish together!
Early on when we were dating, we discussed children and we both wanted children more than anything in the world! Noelle always knew she wanted to adopt. After being together for a couple of years we decided to put our plan into motion. Trina decided she would carry the child for us, she wanted the pregnancy experience. After many years of failed fertility treatments the doctors told Trina it just wasn't possible.
Nothing was going to stop us from our dream. We signed up for foster care. We had 2 newborn placements, both were able to be reunited with their families. We learned a lot during the process. We saw how well we worked together as parents and what great mothers were inside of us. This is what we were meant to do in life. We knew the children that were supposed to be a part of our family would find us. All of this is what led us here. Our son was born in 2016 and it was the most amazing experience of our lives. Words cannot express the love we have for him. We always knew we wanted to have more than one child. We want siblings that can grow up with a best friend like we both did. We want them to be able to share the same experiences and always have someone who shares a similar experience.
We are secure financially and every decision we have made has been knowing that we would have children. Prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom, Trina was in the IT industry. Noelle is also in the IT industry and has been at her job for 13 years. What we love though is renovating houses, we've been doing it for about 10 years. That's our passion and our retirement.
There are things we have both experienced through life that we want to pass on to our children. Trina's Mom always tells her "You are never alone, you always have my support." It doesn't matter what it is, whether we are right or wrong, that support is unwavering. We want to give that same thing to our children. Noelle's mother always gave her avenues to learn new things, whether it was guitar lessons or roller skating competitions, she encouraged Noelle to find things that made her happy. These are things your child will have. The will never feel alone and they will always be encouraged to find their happiness.Please know that we want another child more than anything in this world. We can provide a safe, secure, loving, happy environment. During this journey we hope to provide you with guidance, support, hope and comfort. You will always be a part of our family. We will send you plenty of pictures and letters and we'll see where this beautiful journey takes all of us. We can't wait to meet you!
Noelle and Trina
