Hello, we are Greg and Melissa. Before you get to know a little bit about us, we want you to know that we admire your courage and strength as you navigate this adoption journey and thank you for taking the time to read our profile!
We met back in 2010 as sophomores in college living in the same dorm. We have been married since 2017, have purchased our first home together, and hope to grow our family through adoption as we continue this life together. We feel it is important for you to know that we are also foster parents through this amazing agency. We are excited for these two journeys to merge together because we believe that family, whether through fostering or adoption, is built by love, not DNA.
Greg works full time in commercial real estate and loves his job. He is easy going, and shows dedication and thoughtfulness in all he does. Voted “Class Clown” in high school, his sense of humor is what draws others to him. Greg loves a good DIY fixer upper project around the house!
Melissa is a PreK teacher in their local community. She went to school for Early Childhood Education and has always had a passion for working with younger children. Melissa loves to read, go on walks with their dog, Luna, and spend time with her sisters. She has no doubt that their families will make the best grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins!
We live in a suburb on the west side of Cleveland, along the shores of Lake Erie. Living just a half a mile a way from the beach is one of our favorite things about our city! We love to go for walks to get ice cream, watch the sunset, or look for beach glass while at the beach. Our fully fenced in spacious backyard in another spot you will find us in the evenings or on the weekends!
