Scott & Heather
We are filled with gratitude to be considered to share our unconditional love with your child. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about us. Growing our family is something that we have always dreamed of and our hearts are bursting as we journey into adoption. Please know that we have the utmost respect for you and our family will always uphold your honor.
Our Family Dreams
Our family dream is the same as many future parents. We are ready to grow our family and to share all of our love and laughter with this child. We will provide a safe, nurturing, loving and fun home for him or her. Our intent is for this child to grow up happy, healthy, with many fond memories and a bright future.
We will be honest regarding their history and honor where they come from. We believe that it is important for the child to know that they are surrounded by love from both their birth family and adoptive family and just how special they truly are. Our promise is to provide the best life possible with every opportunity that we are able to provide. Our hope is to raise a kind and respectful person who is able to achieve whatever dreams they may have.
We have 3 cats - Bailey, Pepper and Remy. They are our fur babies, our family. They each have they're own distinct little personalities but all love attention and to be cuddled. Pets have always been very important to both of us growing up. Their unconditional love and loyalty is something that humans can learn from. If Heather could rescue all of the animals in the world she would. They just hold such a special place in her heart.
Recently a Cat Cafe was built a few blocks from our house where kitties in need of a loving forever home reside. We love to visit them and give them the attention that they are longing for. Our child will be raised to love and respect animals of all kinds. We believe this helps children to develop compassion and caring from an early age.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Heather about Scott:
Scott is my rock, my home, my everything. He is hysterical. It's that dry sense of humor that not everyone understands at first but once they do they can't help but to laugh. He's witty, extremely intelligent and seems to know something about almost everything. Scott knows exactly what to say right when I need to hear it. I respect his work ethic and the sense of pride he takes in his work. I love how considerate he is of others. He has this amazing ability to remain calm and level-headed even in the most stressful situations. I consider myself beyond lucky to have my best friend as my husband and absolutely can not wait to to see him as a father to our child.
Scott about Heather:
Heather is the most loving person I have ever met. Whether it be with people or animals, she is a natural nurturer. Heather lights up a room as soon as she enters it and she has a calming presence about her that people can't help but feel comfortable around. I love her sense of humor and admire her priorities in life. She cares deeply for family and friends and works for life as opposed to living for work. Heather can make me smile at anytime with just a smirk and she brings me back down to earth when my head gets in the clouds. She is going to be an amazing mother.
Our House and Neighborhood
Palm trees and the ocean breeze! Our home is located 5 blocks from ocean in beautiful, sunny Florida. We have 3 bedrooms and a nice open floor plan utilized for spending quality time with our family and friends. Our backyard is our sanctuary with a hammock hanging between our palm trees, rocking chairs and plenty of room to play. We spend a lot of our time here relaxing, gardening, playing music and grilling delicious meals.
Our quaint little beach town is filled with families and children riding their bikes together and even cruising in golf carts. We are surrounded by many parks, nature trails and are in walking distance to the fishing pier. Our community hosts outdoor family movie nights at the pavilion next to the beach. Everyone brings their blankets, folding chairs, snacks and loved ones. The 4th of July is a special treat! Beautiful fireworks are set off at the fishing pier and we happen to have the perfect view from our balcony. During the holiday season we have a unique event where the lifeguard chairs are all decked out in festive lights. We have many music and art festivals throughout the year filled with family fun, kids activities, food and ice cream trucks. Our town has a fun amusement and water park which also includes mini golf and an arcade. We are beyond excited to welcome a child into our family where we can enjoy this little treasure of a beach town together!
Our Extended Families
Our family is in Maryland, where we both grew up, and in the Carolinas. Scott is the middle child with two brothers. Heather is an only child to her mother and has two half-brothers from her father. Between us we have 10 nieces and nephews, so this child will have plenty of cousins to play with! We visit both states at least once each during the year, especially around the holidays. They all decorate their homes so beautifully at Christmas and we always have a blast celebrating, cooking and eating together. Everyone in the family has expressed how beautiful adoption is and how they can't wait to welcome a new little one with open arms. Our parents especially are beyond ecstatic. They can not wait to share their love with this child. They sometimes act like giddy children themselves talking about it!
Our families also come to visit us several times a year. We love to head out to the beach, build sand castles, throw the football and dip our toes in the water. At home we enjoy playing games, cooking great meals and settling into movie nights. Our home with family and friends is filled with laughter and tons of love.
Fun Fact: We met at Scott's brother's wedding. He married Heather's childhood friend and we both were in their wedding party. Scott's new sister-in-law knew even before we did that we would be a perfect match. She played the match-maker and four years later they were in our wedding!
From Us to You
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us as potential parents for your child. Although we've never met, please know that we admire you and have great respect and empathy for the difficult decisions that you have before you. We delight in the thought of becoming parents. We promise to unconditionally love and nurture your child while always upholding your honor.
As a couple, we share the same outlook on life. We are both very down-to-earth, pragmatic people who value education, hard work, respect and empathy. These are characteristics that we hope to instill in your child. At the same time we enjoy having fun! We can't wait to share the beach, family festivals, bike rides and movie nights with our growing family.
The company that we both work for offers excellent benefits and flexibility to care for a child. Whenever we are able to adopt, we are fortunate enough to be able to spend the majority of the first year at home to bond. We have plenty of time off to share as a family to enjoy many adventures and vacations together.
We met 9 years ago while we were both in Scott's brother's wedding party. He was marrying Heather's childhood friend. Within a year, we began dating and have been inseparable ever since. We dated for 3 years before becoming married and now have been married for 5 years. Our marriage has been the greatest experience in each of our lives and we are ecstatic to share our ever-growing love with a child.
We have talked about growing our family since before marriage. It's something that has always been exciting to dream of. We started trying to become pregnant shortly after we were married. After trying on our own for 2 years we decided to seek medical help. After 3 failed IVF attempts it became clear to us that adoption would become our path to growing our family. While this journey has changed over time, our desire to become parents has continued to grow immensely.
As parents, we want this child to know their story from very early on. We will be completely open with them regarding their adoption and their family history. This child will know that the decision you made was a selfless and loving one. We are open to you being active in their life as much as you desire to and will ensure this child understands just how important you are. We'd love to send pictures, letters and even have annual visits for years to come if that is your wish. Please know that regardless of the openness in this adoption that you desire, this child will always know how significant and special you are in our lives.
Again, we thank you for taking the time to consider us as a family for your child. We can not imagine how difficult this decision is for you. You deserve all the respect in the world for this selfless act of love. We wish you much peace during this journey and for the many years to come.
