Our Story

Fall family pictures
We were married in 2016 after dating for over 5 years. We met in high school, but did not start dating until a few years after we met. Hunter always told Melissa he would not propose until she finished school.

When Hunter proposed all of our close family and friends were there to celebrate with us.

Hunter stayed true to his word and proposed just weeks after she graduated from college. It was the best day and we were so excited to start planning the future we dreamed of. When Hunter proposed all of our close family and friends were there to celebrate with us. We were engaged for a little over a year before getting married at a local church. Since being married we enjoy game nights with friends, traveling, and continuing traditions with each of their families.

Meet Melissa

Melissa has been a first grade teacher for 5 years. She graduated with her Bachelors degree 5 years ago, then went back and got her Masters degree with a Principal Certification 3 years ago. Melissa always wanted to be a teacher.

Our friend's children are like our niece and nephews and Melissa loves planning fun days for them.

She has a strong love for her students and always wants the best for them. Melissa still has deep relationships with many of her childhood teachers that are mentors to her and she desires to have the same impact on her students as her teachers did for her.

Our friend's children are like our niece and nephews and Melissa loves planning fun days for them. She is always thinking of exciting activities to do with them at our house or places to take them. The oldest, Aubree, gave Melissa a nickname when she was just starting to talk. Now all the kids call her Nema. She loves having Aubree, Greysen, and Corbin with her any chance she gets. All of the laughs and snuggles are her favorite part.
Hunter loves to go fishing.

Meet Hunter

Hunter is an outside salesman for an air conditioning company. He has worked in this field for 10 years. He enjoys the opportunity of working with customers, providing excellent service and meeting new people.

Hunter enjoys hunting, fishing, and playing video games.



Hunter is the person friends call when they need to talk through hard life circumstances or if they need help moving. Hunter can also be very goofy. Some nights, every corner I turn, I am being scared out of my mind because he is there to jump out and scream. I can always count on Hunter for a good laugh.

Hunter enjoys hunting, fishing, and playing video games. When he is doing these things, he is always doing it with a friend. These hobbies are important to him, because he grew up doing them with his family. I know Hunter cannot wait to pass on these hobbies to our future children. Hunter has always liked traveling too and lately he has wanted to travel even more. We love to dream of our future travels together.

We have some close friends that have children and we claim these kids as our niece and nephews. When we have them over to our house, Hunter loves to get down on the floor to play or chase them around the house. Hunter has a big heart to share so much love with others.
We are praying for you and your family.

We Believe In Keeping The Promise

Thank you for taking the time to read about us. We look forward to getting to know you and the possibility of building a future journey with you.

If you choose us to parent your baby, we promise to love your child each and everyday, unconditionally.

We want them to know and have a purpose to work towards everyday.

This journey will not always be easy, but we want your child to go to bed every night knowing how much they are loved by everyone in their life, including you. When we dream of our future children we see the nightly play time, bath time routines and the bedtime story reading. We see the Saturday afternoons at the baseball fields with Hunter coaching your little through their first time batting. We see the falls off of bikes and scrapped knees and needing love, kisses, and snuggles in that that moment. We see the honest and close family relationships. Building and pouring into our relationship with you. You and your child will always be a priority for us!

We want them to know and have a purpose to work towards everyday. We want them to understand their journey and share it with others. We promise to share the good, the bad, and the ugly, as it is appropriate, of our journey of adoption. Life is not perfect and every journey is different, but understanding this and taking each day as it comes, and praying through it will help us all grow stronger together.

We are praying for you and that you may have peace that passes all understanding!
