A Letter from Dominick & Shelbi

Our Journey together began our freshmen year in high school. Dominick was on the baseball team and Shelbi was on the softball team. Right away we hit it off!

After years of hard work, graduating from college, buying our first home together, and getting married- we were ready and excited to grow our family! After running into difficulties with infertility we realized we were meant for adoption! We understand that love is greater than blood and we are excited to share our passion for camping, sports, Disney, and lives with your child.

About Us/ Favorites

Being high school sweethearts, we have been through much of life’s ups and downs together and have grown closer through it all. We love to take long walks in the neighborhood with our two dogs, Miss. America and Slate. In the summertime, we enjoy going to the lake while, in the winter, we love to enjoy the snow! Together we love to dance, work in the yard, refurbish furniture, and all things Disney! To this day, we still enjoy playing in adult sports leagues (it reminds us of when we met!). We are very active in participating in all our family events, attending sports games, camping trips, beach days, movie nights, trips to the family cabin, and Disneyland! Birthdays, holidays, and an assortment of Vacations throughout the year are also big parts of our family gatherings. We look forward to welcoming your child into the family and taking them on their first Disneyland trip with the entire family!

 

My Husband, Dominick

Dominick is a trustworthy, fun, loving, easy-going, hard-working man. He prides himself in supporting his family and always balancing life between work and family. Dominick works as a Linemen and enjoys every moment of his job. Dominick loves being around his friends and family especially all their little ones. He is the kind of man you can count on for anything- big or small, he will be there. In his free time, Dominick loves archery, playing sports with his buddies, and going hunting. He always enjoys a good BBQ, listening to live music, working on his truck, building things, and watching funny movies. I know he is excited to spend time with our child and teach them how to swim, play games coach them in whatever sport they find interest in.  I know he will be an amazing father one day.

My Wife, Shelbi

Shelbi is a caring, kind, loving, loyal, selfless woman who constantly puts others first. She has the ability to nurture and care for all personality types of all ages. I know she will teach our child about kindness, compassion, and following their heart. Shelbi is an incredible listener and counsel’s children with behavioral disabilities. She puts herself into everything she does and even has her own business creating DIY projects.  For fun, Shelbi loves taking walks, lake days, and date nights that include a freshly cooked meal and a marvel movie on the couch. I know she looks forward to the moment she can share her craft with our child while building things together. She will be a great mom and I know she is excited to play in the snow, share her passion for crafts, and help our child find their own interests.

Our Home in California

We live in a new farmhouse in a great town that comes with an even better community! Our home is open concept with three great bedrooms- one of which is already set up for baby. We have a big fenced-in yard meant for games and many activities as we host holidays including Christmas and Easter. During the summertime, we gather for the 4th of July, since Dominick loves to BBQ and we live closes to a lake. We also are close to parks, hiking trails, farms, ranches, and many great schools. The best part about it is both sides of the family live close by or within two hours.

Our Family / Traditions

Together we have a large, Christian, family combined with young Nieces and Nephews, Aunts and Uncles, Grandparents, and Parents from both sides. Both sides of the family are ecstatic for us to adopt as they all have been looking forward to welcoming your child into the family! Since we have been together for so long our families have become close making holidays, birthdays, and other events a great time. We get together every holiday to celebrate with family!  Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and Halloween are our favorites, we also make it a point to celebrate Fourth of July, Saint Patrick’s Day, and others.

 

Our Promise

We will give your child every opportunity to be whoever they want to be and share our knowledge, abilities, aspirations, education, and life with them. We promise that we and our families will bring your child in with the biggest open arms making sure they know they are cherished and appreciated every waking moment.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

As a couple, we love to dance. We will occasionally go out to enjoy a night of swing and line dancing. We also enjoy doing work in the yard and refurbishing furniture together. Shelbi loves working with decor as she has helped stage homes for sale. Dominick is a hunter keeping the tradition of putting food on the table for the holidays. We also are huge Disney fans and take time at least once a year to go to Disneyland with friends or family.

Our Faith

We are a Christian Family on both sides. We believe in Jesus Christ and that we will have a place to lay our heads when this life is over. We enjoy celebrating our Faith on Easter and Christmas giving our appreciation toward following the Christian path.

Our Musical Interest

We enjoy all kinds of Music. We listen to country the most but will also play Rock N Roll, R&B, Hip Hop, Classical, folk, blues, jazz, and soul music. Any music that makes us feel good is the music we enjoy playing.

About Our Home

We just recently purchased our third home together and are loving it. We live in a rural town right outside of the main city giving us everything we need in close proximity. Right down the street, there is a huge park for kids. We have two bedrooms that are waiting to be filled with the laughter of children. Our home has plenty of space for a growing family. If we ever get a compliment on our home people will say they always feel at home.
