John is my best friend. We share such a loving relationship that it is almost difficult to put into words. He is intelligent, spiritual and has an incredible sense of humor. From the moment we met I knew that John was the person I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. He works so hard to provide a wonderful life for us both. Knowing and loving John and his family has been the great joy of my life. He will make such a loving and caring father. Because of John I have found a happiness that I never knew was achievable.

We met thirteen years ago in Memphis, Tennessee while we were next door neighbors. We became great friends and soon we both fell in love. One year later we made a move to Nashville, Tennessee where we have lived for the last ten years. Over time our relationship has grown and strengthened through our friendship, faith and love. Our lives are filled with joy and laughter and we cant wait to share it with our child.
We live in a great community at the edge of a beautiful lake in Nashville, Tennessee. A public greenway path connects the lake and other city parks right to our backyard. We can already see our little one feeding the ducks and geese that swim along the shore! Our community has great schools and is filled with children of all ages. We are close to great family friendly attractions, a huge water park and fun playgrounds. It will be so exciting visiting the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere and sliding down the waterslides at Nashville Shores. We can’t wait to share our home with our child. We will have so much fun riding bicycles on the greenway, visiting the Grand Ole Opry or having fun playing indoors with our two cats, Merry and Kitten!
John’s parents live an hour away from Nashville on their family farm. We are truly blessed to own a second home right next door to them! When we go for weekend visits, our child will have a great place to explore with open fields and lots of animals to learn about and see. Close by is John’s sister and brother who are so excited to have their very first niece or nephew. Both of John’s parents are retired and can’t wait to spend time with their first grandbaby!
Scott’s Dad and Stepmom live in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Papa and G.G. are so excited to have their grandchild go with them for his or her first trip to the beach! Scott’s Mom lives in Boston and will retire in Nashville soon after her newest grandchild arrives. Our family speaks French so she will be overjoyed when she hears her grandchild call her Mémère, French for Grandmother, for the very first time!
John began a great job ten years ago working as an attorney for the State of Tennessee and has a flexible schedule. We love to travel and go on a cruise every two years. We can’t wait to share our first family vacation together on a Disney Cruise and see all of the joy and excitement in our child’s eyes! Scott has spent the last four years as a nanny to our friend’s children Zinnia and Elizabeth. His relationship with their family began as a close friendship through church. Being a nanny to both children has been a great way for Scott to get experience caring for infants and toddlers. As a stay-at-home dad Scott will treasure sharing precious daddy time teaching our child French, reading his favorite childhood books and spending as much time as we can visiting family and friends.

Scott is a unique individual. He is funny and smart, and he has a great perception of people and the world. Scott has a strong faith and spirituality that guides him through his life. He has dedicated his life to the care, well being and love of children. Anyone who sees him with the children that he cares for would know that. I know that Scott was the one I was meant to be with.
