A Letter from Isaiah & Desiree

Dear Birthmother,

We are a loving family of 3 who is ready to expand our family through the gift of adoption! Isaiah was adopted into a wonderful Christian home, and we would love to offer the same blessing to your child. We are excited to adopt a child of any race and will provide them with a stable, caring, and supportive home to call their own.

About Us

We met in college and have been married for 5 years. We have been blessed with our son, Nehemiah, who is looking forward to becoming a big brother! When we got engaged, we started talking about how adoption would be in our future, and we are so excited to now be on this path.

We enjoy staying active in everything we do! As a family, we like to swim in our screened-in pool, take trips as a couple to places like the Bahamas and trips to Disney with our son, attend basketball games, and host our loved ones in our home. Having quality time together every day is so important to us, and we look forward to sharing that time with another little one.

About Desiree

Desiree is a strong, intelligent, easy-going wife and mother. She loves being a stay at home mom and has such a special bond with our son. Being a mom comes naturally to her, and I love watching their relationship grow.

Desiree is so creative and loves doing craft projects, decorating the house, painting, and taking photos and videos for our youth ministry at our church. One of her favorite parts of the day is reading Nehemiah’s favorite books to him before bed. I know she will lovingly embrace your child with open arms!

About Isaiah

Isaiah has such a fun personality; he makes us laugh all day long. He is always up for an adventure and easily makes friends. Being a Youth Pastor at our church, he is so good with young people and has so much fun finding new ways to connect with them.

Isaiah is always staying active. He loves to hang out with his students from church, swim in our pool with Nehemiah, ride bikes around the neighborhood, and play basketball. He plays in a men’s basketball league and loves taking Nehemiah to play with the other player’s kids. He is so excited to share his passions with another child!

Our Home in Florida

Our 3 bedroom home is warm and cozy! There is a lot of open space for kids to run around, and we always make sure to keep it clean and tidy. Our backyard has our swimming pool, a netted trampoline, and our grill where Isaiah loves to cook up some great food.

We live in a quiet neighborhood where we see kids riding their bikes or playing in their yard. We are a short distance from playgrounds, parks, a nature reserve where we can see alligators, and are less than an hour away from Disney World.

Our Family

Desiree comes from a small family that are all very close. Isaiah was adopted into a biracial family and is one of 7 children. His parents only live 45 minutes away, and we get together with them often. Most of our family lives in Ohio and Georgia, and we make sure to keep in contact with them throughout the week. Our church feels like our family as well! Everyone in our lives is so supportive of our choice to expand our family through adoption.

Our son, Nehemiah, is 4 years old is going to be such a supportive and loving brother. He is just like Isaiah in the way he is outgoing, smart, and expressive!

We would love to start new family traditions and share old ones with your child. Every Christmas Eve we get Chinese food, each year we take a trip to Isaiah’s parent’s timeshare here in Florida with the whole family, and always have big family dinners for all the holidays.

Our Promise

We thank you for taking the time to learn more about us! Our promise to you is to provide a loving and faithful home for your child to grow and be fully themselves. We will encourage them every day and teach them about God, culture, and how to love and be loved. Love is abundant in our household and we will make sure your child knows how much they are loved every day by you and by us.

We would love to share an open adoption with you if you would be comfortable through letters, photos, and visits! We are looking forward to hearing from you soon. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
