More About Our Family
We are both native Floridians. When we met, we realized we had grown up 2 miles from each other and had common friends and experiences. We were even born in the same hospital and had the same pediatrician. Our first date was to an Orlando Magic Game and other local events such as concerts and college football games soon followed. We realized that we cared about each other deeply and fit into each other's lives perfectly. After 2 years of dating, we got married in 2016. Parker graduated from FSU and works as an IT manager at a university. He enjoys running, hiking, projects around the house, and being outdoors. His undergraduate degree is in music and he enjoys performing and producing music. He is close to his family and has a close circle of supportive friends. Meredith graduated from University of Florida (we are a house divided) and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and School Counselor. She has worked in an Elementary School for the past 13 years as a counselor and specializes in Play Therapy. She enjoys cooking, spending time with her dog, reading, and being outdoors at the beach or the park. Meredith also is close with her family and friends. Many of our family and friends have children that we are close to and see frequently. After we started dating and fell in love, we knew we wanted to start a family together. We found out, after trying for some time, that it was not possible for us. We started researching adoption and decided God led us to this process for a reason. We have not taken our decision to adopt lightly and came to it after much prayer and research. Adoption is a special opportunity for us to start the family that we have always longed for. Our family and friends have been praying for our adoption journey and have been supportive throughout the process. Our hearts are overflowing with love to share with a child and ready to welcome one into our family.
