A Letter from William & Melissa
We want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We are a very strong family unit that loves spending time together whether it is hanging out at the house by the pool, traveling, watching football, or cooking together. Our home is filled with love, patience, and joy that we are excited to share with your child. Your baby will be loved and given the best opportunities to go to the best schools and colleges. We would love to learn about you, the hope and dreams you have for your future and your child’s.
We have been married for five years, and we are the best of friends that love spending time together whether it is hanging out at home with our kids have pizza night and playing games or on one of our many travel adventures. In addition to loving to travel we also enjoy cooking together, going to music concerts, and watching sports- our favorite has to be football. William was adopted as an infant and so adoption has always had a special place in our hearts. We are so excited to adopt and grow our family! We look forward to taking your child to the beach, sharing with them our love for family, and singing them to sleep.
Melissa is truly an amazing mom and wife. The first time I saw her interact with her daughter I knew I had found the love of my life. She is loving, kind, funny, caring, patient and smart. Melissa is always there to give a hug, fix a broken heart, provide sound advice, and she always encourages our children to reach for the stars and never stop dreaming. When not running her company, being a mother, or a wife, you can find her enjoying at a cooking class with friends, watching her daughter play volleyball, reading, or at spin class. I know that Melissa is excited to teach our child how to ride a bike, read their first book, make mud pies, and watch movies. She will be amazing.
William is the most loving, funny, kind and loyal man I know. His infectious smile, love of sports and love for his kids is what made me fall in love with him. William is a great dad, an amazing husband, and a loyal friend. He loves family deeply and places it at the center of all that he does. William is a kind, caring, understanding father and our kids know they can come to him with anything and he will help them get through it. He loves to swim, watch football, workout, and cook. William is very excited to take our child to their first football game and teach them how to swim.
We have been very blessed to have an amazing blended family. William has four kids; Zachary (30), Elizabeth (27), Nikolas (25), and Jillian (21) who are out of the house with stable careers. We are blessed to see them often! Melissa has a daughter named Mackenzie (13) who lives with us and loves sports and baking. Our kids treat each other like they have grown up with each other all of their life and love each other unconditionally. Our kids are amazing and are all super excited and supportive of our adoption.
We love our home and have worked very hard to make our house a home. We live in a spacious 4-bedroom home that includes a home office, media/family room and an awesome backyard that includes a pool. Our neighborhood is part of a very safe community that has a 24-hour manned guard shack to enter and exit the property and 24-hour security patrol service. Our neighborhood also has a community waterpark and playground and sits on the golf course. Our neighborhood provides a family friendly community focused environment that we truly enjoy.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and provide a loving, safe, and happy home for them. We have been blessed with the ability to provide your child with the best education with exposure to arts, music, and sports. We will encourage them to achieve their dreams and goals while raising them to become a loving, smart and compassionate person. We will always make sure he or she knows how much you love them, and are open to staying touch through letters, pictures, videos, and visits.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We both love sports, yet our favorite has to be football. During football season on a Saturday or Sunday, you can almost always catch us watching a game or attending a game. William's favorite college team is BYU Cougars and his favorite NFL team is the LA Rams. Melissa, on the other hand, is a University of Texas fan when it comes to college football and when it comes to the NFL her team is the Dallas Cowboys. When we are not watching sports, we are watching our daughter Mackenzie play volleyball, attending a music festival with our kids, traveling the world, or just hanging out at the house by the pool grilling and enjoying our family time.
Our faith is the mortar that holds our family and marriage together. We both are practicing Christians and Church on Sundays, and when we are not able to make it church we watch Joel Olsteen on tv. We try and live our life based on our favorite bible verse 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7; Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous, or boastful or proud, or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
We love to take our family and travel the world. We are both big believers in the fact that there is so much a person can learn through traveling. There is so much history that we learn through a textbook that when given the opportunity to actually go and see where some of the most monumental events in history has happened and be able to walk the path our ancestors, our presidents, and world leaders brings on a new understanding to what we have learned. We love to experience new cultures, foods, and traditions. Some of our favorite places to travel are Hawaii, Paris, London, Sweeden, Washington D.C., Park City Utah, anywhere in California, and Chicago.
Combined, we have 5 kids and one grandchild. Williams kids are from his first marriage and they are Zach age 30, Elizabeth age 27, Nik age 25, and Jillian age 21. Zach, Nik, and Jillian live in the state of Oklahoma near us, and Elizabeth, her Husband, and daughter Ruby live in Flordia. Both Kim and Elizabeth are artist, Jillian is a full-time student studying to be an English teacher. Zach works as an account manager, and Nik is a chef at a local restaurant. Melissa's daughter, Mackenzie age 13, is from her first marriage, lives at home and attends Private School. She plays volleyball, tennis and loves to help Melissa in the kitchen when baking. We spend all major holidays together and always try and take a full family vacation together every year.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in the great state of Oklahoma. William has lived here for 19 years and Melissa has lived here for 17 years. There have been several times where we have had the opportunity to move out of the state of Oklahoma and we collectively decided not to. We love the people here and how kind and giving they are. Oklahoma has one of the best college preparatory private schools in the United States that allows a parent to start their child there at the age of 3 through 18 (this is the school Mackenzie attends and where the newest member of our family will attend). The economy in the state of Oklahoma is booming. We love our state.
