A Letter from Scott & Melissa
Hello and thank you! We are honored you are considering us for your child. We are Scott and Melissa from Colorado! We are an outgoing, loving couple that enjoys the outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and walking our dogs. We have so much joy in our hearts about adopting and are thrilled to grow our family. We look forward to having a child join us in all we do as a family. We would love to have an open adoption with you and share letters, pictures, and occasional visits. You will see that we love the community that we work and live in. It is a joy to be a big supporter of our community through the Ace Hardware Store that Scott manages, which is the staple of the community, having been there almost 80 years.
Since we got married, we have wanted to grow our family and, after learning we cannot have children naturally, God put adoption on our hearts. We are thrilled to grow our family in this way.
We enjoy going for walks with our two loving dogs (which altogether we call the ‘Zoo’), cooking together, and sharing our yummy creations with our friends and family. We love spending time with family and friends at game nights, movie nights, local shows, art classes, and get-together dinners! We share a passion for animals and the outdoors, which we look forward to sharing with our child. We truly believe that it takes a village to raise a child and we have so many people in our lives (immediate family, extended family, and friends) who are all thrilled to be a part of our child’s life!
Right out of high school I started working in an education setting and, after about 10 years of teaching, I retired from the field to work for a retirement community where I assisted residents. We recently moved to a bigger house, with room for our family to grow. Because of the location, I had to look for a new company to work for. I found the local Ace Hardware store, and gladly accepted a manager position only four miles from our house. I really look forward to sharing my faith, my passion for life, my drive for learning how things work, my work ethic and guiding our child to be their best they can be.
About Scott by Melissa-Scott is a kind man who wears his heart on his sleeve. First and foremost, he is a family man, believes in leading by example, and has a heart for others. Even his work allows him to serve others with aiding the community by helping people fix a problem and find everything they need for life living in the Colorado mountains. His mind is consistently working out how things work. His sense of humor always makes me laugh and he has plenty of ‘dad jokes’ to share! I know he will be an amazing, hands-on father to our child. Scott takes this same hands-on approach and leads by example as the manager of the local hardware store. I can’t wait to see our child grow up in our community and see the hard work and dedication his/her Daddy puts into his everyday life.
After high school I went to college to work in sports medicine. I now work for a primary care and pediatric medical facility as the referral coordinator/manager. I’m so excited to share my passion for photography with our child as well as help them to learn, grow and explore. I look forward to cheering them on through the happy moments and supporting them through the sad ones.
About Melissa by Scott-Melissa’s kindness was one of the first things that stood out to me about her. On top of her kind heart, she has a perseverance like I have never seen! I really see that perseverance she has at her work at the medical facility. She works directly with the patients and insurance companies to make sure they get what they need. She knows that their life depends on her work, so she sticks with a problem until she finds a solution. Melissa loves to work on her craft projects, and I know she is excited to share that passion with our child.
We are very close with our families (or as we call them, ‘The Village’). We have family in California that we talk to on a weekly basis- some of whom have a house here in Colorado, so we see them very often in the warmer months. We have other family that live close by and are part of our lives almost every day. They’re all thrilled we are adopting!
Most weekends and holidays we all get together as a family as we are all excited to spend time together and catch up on what exciting events happened since the last time we got together. We have a tradition each year where our family gets together and takes a picture with Santa at different locations. This is a small tradition that really brings us closer together and is a lot of fun.
When buying our new home, we were sure to keep our growing family in mind and wanted to make sure we chose a house that would best support that. Our home is spacious, filled with love, and located in a wonderful family-oriented neighborhood with children. We’ve designed our home to be fun, inviting, and safe! We love having friends over and our two dogs love to greet them. Our house sits on top of a hill, looking down on the valley below. We have a three-bedroom house, with a gorgeous deck where we like to spend our time. With a plot of land backing up to the Rocky Mountain national forest, we have plenty of land to explore and have fun with our children.
We want you to know that you are not alone in your journey. We are praying for you and your child and know God is with you. We promise to provide your child with a home filled with love, laughter, hands-on parents and plenty of support and encouragement for them to be their best self. We understand the importance of heritage and we look forward to immersing your child in their own so they can grow up connected to their wonderful story. We look forward to getting to know you and would love to discuss an open adoption with you. We’d love to talk or answer any of your questions. Please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
With lots of love and support,
Melissa and Scott
