Hello and thank you for considering us for your child.  We are Scott and Melissa from Colorado! We are an outgoing, loving couple that enjoys the outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and walking our dogs. We have so much joy in our hearts are thrilled to grow our family through adoption.  We look forward to having your child join us in all we do as a family. We would love to have an open adoption with you and share letters pictures and visits at your comfort level.

 

About Us

Since we got married we have wanted to grow our family and, after learning we cannot have children naturally, God put adoption on our hearts. We are thrilled to now grow our family in this way.

We enjoy going for walks with our three loving dogs (which, all together, we call the ‘Zoo’), cooking together, and sharing our yummy creations to our friends and family. We love spending time with family and friends at game nights, movie nights, local shows, art classes, and get-together dinners! We share a passion for animals and the outdoors which we look forward to sharing with our child. We truly believe that it takes a village to raise a child and we have so many people in our lives (immediate family, extended family, and friends) who are all thrilled to be a part of our child’s life!

About Scott

Right out of high school I started working in an education setting and, after about 10 years of teaching, I retired from the field to work for a retirement community where I assist our residents.  I really look forward to sharing my faith, my passion for life, my drive for learning how things work, and guiding our child to be their best self.

About Scott by Melissa-

Scott is a kind man who wears his heart on his sleeves. First and foremost, he is a family man, believes in leading by example, and has a heart for others. Even his work allows him to serve others with aiding the retirement community. He relaxes and renews himself in his new project of restoring my late fathers Jeep. His mind is consistently working out how things work and he is never afraid to ask questions when he’s curious about something. His sense of humor always makes me laugh and he has plenty of ‘dad jokes’ to share! I know he will be an amazing, hands-on father to our child.

About Melissa

After High School I went to school to work in sports medicine. I now work from home as an Authorization Manager for a medical supply company. I’m so excited to share my passion for photography with our child as well as help them to learn, grow and explore. I look forward to cheering them on through the happy moments and supporting them through the sad ones.

About Melissa by Scott-

Melissa’s kindness was one of the first things that stood out to me about her. On top of her heart she has a perseverance like I have ever seen!  I really see that perseverance she uses to at work as an authorization manager for a medical supply company.  She works with insurance companies to make sure patients get what they need.  She knows that their life depends on her work, so she sticks with a problem until she finds a solution.  Melissa loves to work on her craft projects and I know she is excited to share that passion with our child.

Our Family

We are very close with our families (or as we call them, ‘The Village’). We have family in California that we talk to on a weekly basis- some of whom have a house here in Colorado so we see them all the time in the warmer months.  We have other family that live close by, and are part of our lives almost every day.  They’re all thrilled we are adopting!

During the holidays we all get together as a family as we are all excited to share with special time with our child. We have a tradition each year where our family gets together and takes a picture Santa at the Malls.  This is a small tradition that really brings us closer together, and is really fun.

Our Home in Colorado

When buying our new home, we were sure to keep our growing family in mind and wanted to make sure we chose a house that would best support that. Our home is big, filled with love, and located in a wonderful family-oriented neighborhood with children.  We’ve designed our home to be fun, inviting, and safe! We love having friends over and our three dogs love to greet them

Our Promise

We want you to know that you are not alone in your journey. We are praying for you and your child and know God is with you. We promise to provide your child with a home filled with love, laughter, hands-on parents and plenty of support and encouragement for them to be their best self. We understand the importance of heritage and we look forward to immersing your child in their own so they can grow up connected to their wonderful story. We look forward to getting to know you and would love to have an open adoption with you at your comfort level.

With lots of love and support,
Scott and Melissa

Our home is a fun place to be. We call it our little zoo, with three small loving dogs, and countless number of fish in our aquarium. Our friends and family know we keep an open door, and they are always welcome to come join us for a movie night, game night, or support as needed.
