Our Story

Written By Heather:
Paul and I met in a facebook group many years ago. I posted a silly picture of myself and he commented with an equally silly compliment and we added each other as friends and that’s how we stayed for several years; Internet best friends. Once night Paul sent me a message to say “Hey! Long time no talk”. I responded with the same and we talked into the night. There was something about that night that felt different. We both felt it. It felt…Right. That night sparked a flame that just continued to burn brighter as we spoke every day. We finally decided to meet in person and I flew out to North Carolina for the first time and from that first moment together, we knew it was always meant to be this way. A few months later I moved out to NC and the rest is history. We married in 2019, with a later wedding in 2020 after the peak of the pandemic.

From the first moment I met Parker I knew my life would never be the same. I was nervous to meet him so soon, I didn’t want to be someone that walked into and then out of his life, but…that was never going to be the case. I fell in love. With his giggles, his sweet smile, his big blue eyes that could melt even the coldest of hearts. Parker was The Best “little” man at our wedding, with Heather having a special surprise set of vows just for him that left everyone in tears. After spending 2 years in a small rental, we finally found our home! We love it here. It’s warm, open, and has plenty of space to run around and make memories with a beautiful view of the Mountain Peaks! Our love story and the story of our little family is a special one; a unique, one of a kind and beautiful story that continues to evolve and grow.

Since we have settled into our home we have started our Adoption Journey. We made it through our home study and finally began the road to find our baby. Due to reproductive issues, I (Heather) was never able to have a baby. After a hysterectomy at age 28, though devastated at the time. It helped me realize that my life long dream of being a mommy would mean that my path to motherhood would be through adoption. And that’s where we are now. And that’s where you come in! We are prepared! We have a perfect little elephant themed nursery 100% ready with everything a baby would ever need. We are ready for this. We are ready for you. We are ready to bring our baby home. We hope that you have enjoyed reading our story and if you feel that our family would be the prefect place for your baby we promise to love them forever. To protect them and care for them forever. To allow them to become the best versions of themselves and never hold them back from whoever they want to become in life.

We can't wait to hear from you. Love, Heather, Paul & Parker

Our Home

photo of adoptive family's home Our home sits nestled in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains. Our 4 bedroom, 2 bath home has stunning views of the mountains, with plenty of space to roam & play. We don't have many neighbors out here in the country but the ones we do have are wonderful. Our home is decorated by Heather in a country-chic manner with a gorgeous, Elephant Themed Nursery, Video Game room for Parker, an office/music studio and a master suite. The nursery (photo attached) is connected to our bedroom, So baby will be right there near us at all times. (The blanket in the crib is pink, given to us by a friend, but everything else is gender neutral as we are open and have names for both genders). Heather always knows how to turn a house into a home. There are more pictures of our home in our album section!

adoptive family photo - Heather My entire Life I dreamed of being a mother. From the earliest memories I had, I was playing mommy to my baby dolls, my younger siblings, my extended family members and more. When I was 11 years old I told my aunt that I didn't think I could have a baby & my job was to adopt. To find my baby. That the wait was worth it. I have been mothering all my life. Nothing comes more natural to me. I even owned a home daycare for several years. I went to college for Art & Design, I began designing clothing and owned women's clothing company for several years--my full time career before deciding to change fields completely and go into marketing and advertising after realizing that I had been doing this type of work all along for my own company.

I fell in love with it. Getting paid to run around town talking to new and interesting people, selling air, spending times in the music/radio studios and meeting musicians was just an added bonus. I love the freedom my career gives me as I can work anywhere, even from home or on vacation. But something was/is missing from my life. A child to call my own. The one and only thing I have ever wanted in my entire life. It's my hearts cry to be a mommy. I have been ready for this moment my entire life. Some days I stare into our future baby's nursery dreaming of who they will be. Who they will become, the beautiful soul they will grow into.

I love my family. I love Paul's family. I love Paul. He's the calm in the storm. The best person I've ever known. He makes me try to be better every day. I would be lost without him. He is my rock in times of trial, and my laughter when the day seems the darkest. He's unfailingly kind, lovingly attentive, and a genuinely precious and sensitive soul. He made me a mom. Being Parker's Step-Mother has been one of my life's greatest joys. I will raise your baby with all the love in the world. I will let them blossom into who they want to become, and unconditionally love them no matter what comes our way with grace and acceptance.

I/we do not believe in corporal/physical punishment of any kind. We believe in positive reinforcement, letting children grow into who they want to become with honestly and an open dialogue. I believe that with trust, honesty and respect it is possible to raise a child who will treat you with the same trust, honestly and respect. For all these reasons and more I and anyone who knows me believes that I will be a great mother to your child. And I can't wait to meet them!

adoptive family photo - Paul Hi! I'm Paul. I'm 39, a life-long musician, jack of all trades and Dad to the coolest kid on the planet. I always wanted to be a dad. When I was 27 That dream became a reality when my partner of 8 years & I became pregnant with Parker, my now 13 year old son. In the end, my ex-partner and I just weren't meant to be together and shortly after Parker was born we decided to break up but remain close. We lovingly raise parker in an incredible co-parenting relationship. My Ex-partner and I are still good friends & we raise Parker together, amicably and happily, as we always have. My son is my whole world and after years of pursuing music & touring with some of todays greatest bands, when he was born, I knew he was the most important thing in my life, so I decided that it was time to set aside the road life for a life at home to be with my son. I have never regretted that decision for a moment. He is the best thing I've ever done, musically or otherwise. He is my legacy. I never knew you could love another human being so much until the moment I first held him. His tiny little self was all I would ever need.

When I met my wife on facebook, I knew I was going to marry her one day. I get it. That may sound a little crazy, but its true. Despite the thousands of miles between us, and complications aside, I just knew it was going to happen one day. I have loved her since the moment I met her. She is an incredible woman; the strongest woman I've ever known. She is my best friend aside from my little buddy, of course. I couldn't have our wedding day complete without him as my best little man. I have dedicated myself to raising my son, loving my wife and continuing to make music. My 3 loves. I have always loved being around kids. They keep it simple. I'm still a big kid inside and love to play and laugh. I also have a niece and nephew. My brother and his kids live just down the road from us & they lived with me for a few years and I helped raise them. My wife's niece from her sister is kind of obsessed with my son and I just adore her too. I love my family and Heather's, too, like they are my own!

Everyone who knows me knows me and my little mini-me son, knows I'm a rad dad and while we are best buds I also lay down the rules when need be. We don't believe in physical punishment, but in positive reinforcement. It turned out great for Parker. He is a great Kid. Kind and respectful. I like to think our openness and honesty with him is why he is such an awesome little man. I always wanted to adopt as well. It was kind of a deep calling I always had lingering inside. Though I have loved being a dad to my son, I would love the ability to be a dad all over again, with the full experience 24/7.

I do my music from home and work weekends so I'll get to be home with our baby quite a bit. I can't wait to be a father again. I can't wait to hold our baby and rock him/her to sleep. I can't wait to meet our child and I just want to thank you for considering us and I am so proud of you. And wanted to tell you how incredible you are. Your courage and love to make this choice for your child is the most commendable act I can ever imagine. Thank You. <3
