Dear Birth Parent(s),

Every family on here wants to stand out, but we’re all pretty much the same. We’re folks who want to adopt and love a child to complete our families. Parenting is wonderful but can be unpredictable. All we can promise is what any parent can promise, to give your child our best try as loving adoptive parents.

Here’s a snapshot of us…
• We live a simple life in a small rural town.
• We’re financially stable, but not obsessed with work.
• We spend time not money on things that matter most.
• We have the best friends and family in the world. Your child will fit right in.
• Your baby will complete our family.

We’ve been married for 7 years and together for 15 years. Being together for over a decade, we’ve learned what matters most in life, TIME. It’s the one thing you can’t buy more of, and the one thing people regret wasting at the end of their life.

If selected as your child’s adoptive parents, we guarantee that they will receive our most precious resource, quality time. We’re so lucky, and we’ve worked hard to be financially secure in life. We’re unworried with the demands of stuff and status. And we think that puts us in the position to have an adoptive child and give them our all each day.

Thank you for taking the time to view our profile.

Who We Are

Felicia and Vinny met in December 2008 through a mutual friend in Murfreesboro, TN. Vinny was a Murfreesboro native and Felicia had moved there two years prior from Jackson, TN. After a month of dating, we began a relationship.

After several years of dating we moved in together in August 2013 and began to become solidified as a long-term couple. After graduating with a Master’s degree, Vinny soon after proposed to Felicia in December 2015.

With several years of co-habiting we knew we didn’t need a long engagement. We married in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado in July 2016. Naturally, we began discussing children soon after marriage.

However, Felicia has a younger brother with Duchene Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a debilitating muscle disease that leads to chronic pain, loss of mobility, and premature death. After genetic testing in November 2016, Felicia was diagnosed as a carrier of DMD. Meaning she could pass the disease on to a son, making it too risky to have biological children.

During that time, we began discussing adoption to build our family. Since 2016, we began working toward the position to be able to start a family. In 2018, we bought our first house to free up money from expensive rent. In 2021, Vinny obtained a job that provides great health insurance, benefits, work life balance, and pay. In late 2022, Felicia transferred to a local library branch closer to our home. Working part-time will make it an easier transition to become a stay-at-home mom to provide complete childcare for our adopted child.

So here we are! You’re looking at over 7 years of preparation to be financially, emotionally, and physically prepared so we can truly be good parents to our child. We’re "slow and steady wins the race" kind of people. Our life goals are to live simply and focus on the love and warmth a household can generate when it’s not focused on things, but instead on family, quality time, and most importantly, unconditional love.

Adoption Diary

Week 3

Our friends made a Facebook post sharing our adoption profile this past week, and we’re feeling so encouraged now that tons and tons of people have seen our profile and shared it with others!

Also, we love love love decorating for Christmas!  Vinny and his sister decorated the outside of the house and they love watching the cars slow down to check out the lights!

We can’t wait to be soon decorating for our own child’s enjoyment!

Thanksgiving 2023

We celebrated Thanksgiving with Felicia’s family in Milan, TN this year!  We couldn’t help but think how lucky our adoptive child will be to enter such a fun family with tons and tons of cousins to play with!  We love making memories with our nieces and nephews, and we hope that maybe we’ll have our own child by Thanksgiving 2024.  Here’s hoping! :)
