Favorite season and why?

Spring is my favorite season because of the endless sunshine and perfect temperatures for being outside. I also enjoy Fall's cooler temperatures and the changing colors of the foliage.

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

Erase hate and human greed. Instead of being fueled by hate and greed, we should all be more kind and caring towards others.

What is the best word to describe your family?

Loving and accepting. Raising your child surrounded by love and family is important to me and my family is ready to welcome your child into our lives.

Melissa

Dogs or cats?

I love all animals but I'm a dog person. I love spending time with my dogs Maggie and Noel. On the weekends, we enjoy our walks and we can’t wait to incorporate the kiddie park into our fun.

In five years, our relationship with you will...

Comfortable, open, honest. I know all relationships start off awkward and I hope we are past that point. I'm hoping that you are part of my life if that is what you desire.

Melissa

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

How beautiful of a world God created for us and how we are part of something so much bigger than ourselves.

Melissa

We are the best choice because…

I promise your child will know your courage, your deep love for them and that you are the first page of their amazing story.

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

I can't live without my family and friends. I'm blessed to be surrounded by a wonderful, loving group of people and I would be lost without them. I also can't live without pizza and diet coke.

Melissa

What scares you?

The world right now. Our society seems to be fueled by hatred instead of love and acceptance. We need to remember it is ok for us to be different and have different opinions.

Melissa

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Religious. I grew up in a Christian home and we attended church every Sunday. In my adult years, I still find great comfort in attending church and being part of the Christian community.

Melissa

My best friend would describe me as......

Loyal, loving, kind, funny, and dependable.

Melissa

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

RV because it would give me the freedom to hit the open road and visit many of the places on my bucket list.

Melissa

My favorite place in the World is...

In the mountains. When I'm surrounded by nature, I feel at peace because it is so calming to me. All the day to day happenings of life seem to disappear.

Melissa

I hope you are...

I hope you are safe and well and have someone you can lean on at all times.

Melissa

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

I hope she will be part of my life. I hope that she will be flourishing and is pursing her dreams.

Melissa

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Pranzo's Pizza! I have always enjoyed a good slice of pizza and we stumbled across this pizzeria in NYC a few years ago. It was some of the best pizza I have ever eaten.

Melissa

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

I live in a small town just outside the city limits. It is a quiet, safe place to raise a family and it offers a great sense of community.

Melissa

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

A dear friend of mine I lost to cancer a few years ago. He was such a joyful, caring person and I miss our conversations. He had this special way of always making me laugh and I miss him dearly.
