Greg and Melissa
Who We Are?
Hello! We are Melissa and Greg! We are both in our 30’s and our story began 18 years ago where we met at college, and we have been together ever since. We both earned our bachelor’s degrees and after graduation, we started our careers and began the next chapter of our lives together. We married in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by our family and friends, and we have been happily married for 12 years. Our sweet, silly, and energetic daughter was born in 2013 and she is the absolute joy of our lives! We own our home in Northern New Jersey, in a suburb outside New York City. We love our community for its great schools and many fun parks and playgrounds where we enjoy spending our time.
We love the wonderful life we have built for ourselves, and we enjoy creating memorable experiences together! We come from loving and close-knit families, and we make frequent trips to central New York to see Greg’s family and to Melissa’s family lake home in Lake George, New York. Whether it is an afternoon at home playing in the backyard, getting together with friends, enjoying seasonal traditions like apple picking, weekend trips to the NJ shore, or Disney vacations, we enjoy spending time together! We also enjoy many activities such as hiking, cooking, watching movies at home, bike rides, visiting our families, day trips and traveling.
Why Are We Adopting?
We feel in our hearts that we are meant to grow our family through adoption, and we are very excited about this journey. After giving birth to our daughter, we struggled through miscarriages and pregnancy complications, but we have never given up on our dream to have a second child to love and support. We are both familiar with adoption as we both have close friends that are adopted, and Greg also has extended family members who are adopted. We are so overjoyed and excited thinking about the possibility of our family growing to four through adoption!
Why Choose Us?
We love being parents and we have so much love to give! We are a fun-loving, caring, supportive family and we know we would provide a wonderful home for your child. Being parents is the greatest blessing God has given us, and if we are blessed to become parents to your beautiful child, we would love your child unconditionally! We would raise your child with open arms together with our large extended family and provide your child with a happy and full life!
Thank you so much for taking the time to meet us and we look forward to getting to know you.
