Hopeful Adoptive Family

Meet a loving, adoptive family ready to give your child a home.

A Letter from Will & Clarissa

Hello from Florida! We are Will & Clarissa and we are excited to grow our family through adoption. We have two daughters, Abby (10) and Alyssa (7). We enjoy movie nights on the weekends, swimming in our pool, having playdates with our friends and extended family, and going to theme parks around Florida. As we grow our family, we look forward to spending more time as a family doing what we enjoy – being together! We are open to texts, letters, photos, and visits and are excited to teach our next child about God.

About Us

We are high school sweethearts, we have been together for 27 years and we are looking forward to many more. We like going out on dates, going out to dinner, shopping, and watching “based on true story” movies together. Our hearts were first drawn to adoption when we learned it was going to be difficult to conceive naturally. After four years of fertility treatments, we were blessed with our oldest daughter, Abby, and, 3 years later we were blessed with Alyssa. We love to spend time together as a family watching movies, having play dates, playing table games, and riding our bikes. We are thrilled to now follow our hearts in adoption and open our home to your child.  As we did with our daughters, we look forward to playing, reading, learning new games, and learning new things with our next child.

About Will

Will is kind, affectionate, and fun! He is the loudest at any party, and nobody forgets his laugh. He enjoys his work at IT and loves the fact that it gives him the flexibility to be home all the time with our daughters. He also gets to use his techie side in solving issues and finding ways to be more efficient. He is patient, kind-hearted, and likes to play and watch basketball. He follows both college basketball and the NBA. His absolute favorite player is Dwayne Wade from the Miami Heat. Will enjoys spending time with our daughters either riding bikes, playing at home, or reading to them. He is looking forward to teaching our next child how much God loves him or her. In addition, he is looking forward to sharing his passion for music and sports with them.

About Clarissa

Clarissa is loving, self-motivated, and patient. She currently works as the Director in Sales and enjoys her job because it is challenging and different each day – she could be doing auditing one day, training on another, and negotiating contracts the next. She has a passion for the Lord, a willingness to be unselfish, and always keeps our kid’s futures in mind.  She has a passion for teaching others about God and loves going to the beach, have family trips to Georgia, watching movies, riding a bike with our girls, and having regular conversations with the family. In her free time, Clarissa likes to read books. She reads one to two books per month. Most of all, I know that she looks forward to bond with our next child, playing games with them, and sharing with them her passion for reading.

Our Children and Family

Our daughters are such blessings! Abby is 10 years old and her favorite school subjects are math, science, and history. She is a quiet and generous soul, enjoys making others smile, and is always thinking about others. Alyssa is 7 years old and is the spice of our family! She enjoys making everyone laugh and giving hugs and kisses. Both are looking forward to having a little sibling to play with.

Our extended family lives close by. We have seven nieces and nephews that enjoy spending time together. We have frequent get-togethers and everyone is excited to welcome our next child. Besides our monthly get-togethers, we have other family traditions like getting together on Christmas Eve and on New Year’s Day that we are excited to share.

Our dog, Blondie, is a 14-year-old golden retriever mix. She enjoys watching over Abby and Alyssa and taking long walks around the neighborhood.

Our Home in Florida

We live in a 4 bedroom home with one room already designated for your child! Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood within a gated community with a beautiful backyard that includes a pool, barbecue area, fire pit, and green area to play. We like to take bike rides around our neighborhood and walk our dog, Blondie, at sunset.

Our home is close to an elementary school and high school. We have several parks nearby that we like to visit with our daughters. We like to explore our city by visiting new parks, restaurants, and farmers’ markets.

Our Promise

We promise to love your child and give them all the opportunities to succeed. We will be honest and open about their adoption story and help them to accomplish their dreams and goals. We promise to give your child a fun life with family vacations, Friday movie nights, trips to the beach, and the famous theme parks in Florida. We will teach your child about the love of God and promise that they will grow up with a life full of loving memories. We promise to pray for you each night along with your child. We are open to sharing texts, letters, photos, and visits.

Our Faith

We are Christians and we feel blessed that we are children of God. We make it a priority to go to church every Sunday, but most importantly we want to follow God wholeheartedly every day of our lives. We believe that our Christian faith and values impact every area of our lives. We strive to love every person we come across with knowing they are made in the image of God.

Our Musical Interest

We love music in our house. We typically have music on or on the TV. Clarissa enjoys listening to Christian music, specially the classics like Michael W. Smith and Chris Tomlin. Will listens to both Spanish and English Christian music. Our daughters have the Christian radio station at all times, and our oldest loves the band "For King and Country". We enjoy taking our daughters to Christian Concerts.

About Our Home

We live in a quiet gated community. Our home has 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home with a pool. Our backyard is an oasis with many tropical plants, a fire pit, and a barbecue area. We love our home because it is spacious and we love to entertain. Our daughters love the house so much, they say they are never leaving!
