Samantha & Derek

Hello & Thank You! We are high school sweethearts who value family and are rooted in tradition.

**Please email anytime

We are Sam and Derek. We can't imagine how difficult this decision must be for you and are grateful you are reading our profile. We have always considered adoption to grow our family and decided to pursue it after some issues with infertility. In fact, adoption isn't new to our family. We have a family member who works in adoption and has two adopted sisters. When we told our families about our decision, they were overjoyed. We are equally excited about growing our family and look forward to having a relationship with you and our future child. It is more important to us to be parents than how we became parents. Thanks again for considering us!

Who We Are

We both grew up in Indiana and met in high school. We started dating in 2007 and soon fell in love. We dated throughout our years at college and got married in 2014.

In our free time, we enjoy playing with our dogs and spending time with family and friends. Family and friends are an important part of our lives. We spend most of our time with them doing things like going to breweries and parks with the kids and dogs, having BBQs, attending local festivals and concerts, taking trips to the beach and going camping in the mountains.

One of our other hobbies is traveling. We travel as often as possible and have been to some great places in the US, Canada, China, Europe and the Caribbean Islands. It is always great to have new experiences, learn about different cultures and meet new people.

Some important family traditions include going back to Indiana for Christmas. We typically end up having about 5 different Christmas gatherings while we are there! We also travel back to Indiana every Memorial Day to attend the Indy 500 race with Derek’s family. Derek, his brothers and his dad have been going to the race together for over 20 years. We love Halloween! Every year we pick a theme, decorate our house and have our family and friends over for a costume party. We then hand out candy to the neighborhood kids.This is one tradition Derek is looking forward to sharing with our kids.
