Our Home

We live in Clayton, North Carolina, which is about ten minutes east of Raleigh, North Carolina. We share our home with the cutest little dog ever! Kiwi is great with kids and loves to play. We hope our child will enjoy taking Kiwi to the dog park and dressing him up in silly dog clothes! Our neighborhood is a quiet, friendly place where children are always playing outside and riding bikes. We are looking forward to teaching our child to ride a bike and seeing our child make friends in our great little neighborhood. We will love seeing our little one outside of the house playing make believe with friends.

Our Story

We met online and the moment we met, we knew it was the beginning of an amazing adventure and relationship. Our friendship continues to grow and we are always learning from each other. We look forward to also growing together with our child and teaching him or her about life. We are thrilled about fulfilling our dreams of expanding our family!

Our Careers

Dawn is a Kindergarten teacher and loves teaching and learning from her students! She has a great schedule with weekends, holidays, and summers off for more family time. Dawn cannot wait to share the many adventures and amazing characters in favorite storybooks with our child.

Robert is a Customer Service Representative for a national beverage company. He loves his job because he is able to use his marketing and creative skills. Everyday brings something new, from building large displays in grocery stores to keeping the shelves stocked.

Family and Friends

We cherish our families and our friends! They are dependable, caring, funny, and always willing to help. Everyone is so supportive of us adopting and they have so much love to give our child. We have family in places like Atlanta, Georgia and Evansville, Indiana. We use Skype to keep in contact and talk on the phone with them weekly. During the year, we take trips to visit our parents. They are looking forward to showering their grandchild with love and affection!

Holidays are also a special time with our families. We are looking forward to sharing special holidays and starting new traditions with our child. We are also very involved in our church and enjoy fellowshipping, worshipping, and learning with our church family. We help with Vacation Bible School, church retreats, and the nursery. The children at church will love to have a new friend. We look forward to taking our child to church and raising him or her in our loving family.

About Dawn, by Robert

Dawn is going to be an amazing mommy! She is very nurturing, caring, creative, and fun to be around. I have always loved that when she walks into the room, it makes others want to the same. Dawn loves reading and creating scrapbooks. I can already see her and our child enjoying a fun art project or an adventurous bedtime story together. Dawn is a wonderful teacher and I can see the care, concern, and passion she has for each one of her students. Our child will be very lucky to have a loving mom and great teacher like her.

About Robert, by Dawn

Robert is really looking forward to being a daddy, and I know he will be wonderful! Robert is my rock and is very strong, yet calm in tough situations. He is a dedicated person, and shows it through his love for his family, friends, and career. I know he will be just as dedicated as a dad. I admire his patience and kindness with children and I know he will have so much compassion for our child. He enjoys baking in his free time. He will love seeing our child’s face while licking the bowl after making his famous biscuits!
