Legacy Adoption Services

Paul & Melissa

Hello! We are Paul and Melissa.

We are honored that you are considering us as you think about your future plans. Considering adoption for your child is a brave and selfless act. Above all, we pray for the very best for you and your baby.

As young parents of two little boys, we remember what it was like to wait for our new addition to arrive. Lots of uncertainty, nervous excitement and many sleepless nights and stretchy pants (at least for Melissa!) We would be so blessed to get to know you, and if you would choose to have us be a part of your family, share the milestones and smiles that are to come in the months and years ahead. Your child would be raised knowing that we admire the strength and love it takes to place a child.

Although we don’t know each other yet, we have been praying for you, and eagerly await the day when we can give you hugs of gratitude. Our family is waiting for another child, and we thank you for your role in possibly making our dream come true.

A Little About Us

How We Met:

We met on December 20, 2003 at a Christmas Party. We were both in college and home for Christmas Break. It was pretty much love at first sight! We went on our first date on December 26 and were engaged two years later on that date, then married less than a year after that. Since then we have been through so much together – Paul was a baseball player and I was a business owner in the fashion industry the first few years of our marriage. We have celebrated the births of two boys, the loss that comes with infertility and miscarriages and the joys of living life for the Lord and being ready for his next steps for our lives. Now we are settled in Austin, Melissa as a mom and Preschool Teacher and Paul as a Financial Advisor and Partner in his firm.

Our Hobbies:

We spend a lot of time outside, enjoying the beautiful scenery and fun atmosphere of our city. The boys love to swim in our neighborhood pools and ride bikes. We love to have picnics and meet friends to play at the park and feed the ducks. We have a really sweet street with lots of close friends that we get to call neighbors! Our favorite Saturdays end with all the kids playing in the backyard and a shared dinner with our neighbors.

Family Time:

We love to curl up on the couch and watch a good movie together as a family. On Friday evenings we do pizza and movie nights and we look forward to it all week! As a family we love to travel and explore new places together. The boys love to go to Disney World and the beach. Paul and I have traveled to Italy and Iceland together recently. It is a hobby that we really enjoy together and get excited to take our children back as they get older.

Our Boys, George and Sam:

There is something special about growing up with big brothers. We know that George and Sam will be so loving and protective. We are excited for our boys and this child to make a lifetime of memories together. They both have so much love to give and can not wait to share it with another member of our family!

Why Adoption?

We are so excited to be walking this adoption journey with you. We love that adoption will be a part of our family’s story, and we are so grateful to you for considering us for this tremendous gift. Even before we were married 12 years ago, we knew that we wanted to support adoption. God has grown that calling in us as the years have passed by showing us through friends that had adopted, the incredible role that adoption could play in shaping a family.

After having both boys we knew we still wanted more children and experienced secondary infertility. We began some fertility treatments, but after multiple losses we were faced with a choice; continue fertility treatments or pursue adoption. We prayed, we talked and met with amazing families who had adopted their children, and it became clear: Gods calling on our lives to support adoption meant that we were meant to be adoptive parents ourselves! This is the path that we are choosing in order to build our family, and it is one we’re so proud to be on! We now feel incredibly ready to expand our family through adoption and we are praying for a connection with the mom and child that God wants us to meet!
