Ben & Melissa
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about our little family! We can’t imagine how difficult this must be trying to decide the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you have the love and support you need no matter where you are in your journey.
Our Life Together
We were both born and raised in New York and went to neighboring schools. We even crossed paths many times as kids and never knew it! We met as teenagers working at a local restaurant and became “boyfriend and girlfriend” on March 8, 1998. After 7 years of dating we married June 11, 2005.
Because we grew up together we have had the luxury of starting off as kids and seeing our adult life evolve in to the amazing life it is today. We have been through it all together which has created an unbreakable bond as not only partners in life, but best friends. We support each other’s passions in life and hope to involve our child in the fun as well!
We have always known we wanted to have children and even spoke about adoption before knowing we would never be able to have children naturally. In some way we think this might have been our path all along.
We have a beautiful townhome in a nice family community with plenty of room to grow our family. We look forward to spending time at the playground or one of the two pools at our community. Nights at home snuggling watching a movie are just as much fun too! We are very active and love to go camping with our black lab Harley in our RV. We both grew up camping so we would love to continue that tradition with our child. We are hoping hiking and smores are in our future!
A Little About Ben by Melissa
Ben is a CPA and works as a manager of internal audit. He has worked hard to build a successful career and stable life for us to share with a child. His office is close to our home and provides him flexibility with his schedule. His favorite hobby is riding dirt bikes! I know he is excited to share the fun with our little boy or girl. Ben is such a kind and giving person, always thinking of others. He is the first to help even if someone doesn’t want to ask. He is ever prepared and I know I can count on him with anything that life may throw at us. I know the kids in our life love me too, but they seem to love Ben even more! He is a magnet for little ones whether it’s to play jungle gym, a snuggle buddy. He is always their support in whatever way they need him. I truly could not imagine life without him and I cannot wait to see him as a dad!
A Little About Melissa by Ben
Melissa is a manager of sales services for a commercial furniture and textile sales rep group. The company she works for is small and like family. The support she has at her job is one of the reasons we knew we were ready to take the next step towards adoption. Melissa’s favorite hobby is horseback riding! She has a horse named Dusty who is a part of our furry family along with our sweet black lab Harley. Dusty is only a few minutes from our house so Melissa takes care of him every day. She is so excited to introduce our little one to Dusty and the community of amazing people we have met because of him. I am not sure I can put in to words how excited I am to see Melissa as a mother. She has always been jokingly known as the mother hen to family, friends or any of the children in our life. She always thinks one step ahead and makes sure she is providing what someone may need. Whether it is a warm hug, words of encouragement or simply someone to listen. She will be your undying support from day one. I can’t wait to see her with a child where she can fully express that love and care.
It would be an honor to be chosen as the parents for your child, as your confidence in us is something we could never thank you enough for. We want you to know that we will devote our lives to providing unconditional love, support and stability for your child. We are beyond excited for this journey and can’t wait to become the parents we have always known we could be. Please know we are here for you as well and are more than happy to provide updates on the child’s progress to put you at ease that he or she is being given the best life for them to thrive.
