Hi! We are Dale and Leanne. Thank you for taking a moment to review our profile.
We hope this brief introduction shares with you a glimpse into our lives and what has led us to seek adoption.
We have been together for 17 years, married for 15 of them. Throughout those years we have watched each other grow in every way and it has been an amazing journey but we have always felt we are missing a piece of our life puzzle. Throughout the years we have struggled with infertility but looking back, we see the path God has been laying for us all along. This path has led us to adoption. We share so much love between us and have so much love around us that we long to shower a child(ren) with it. We cannot wait to experience all the adventures being a parent will bring.
Leanne is from Tennessee while Dale was born in Kansas and moved to Tennessee when he was a teenager. We met at work and after about 6 months of friendship, we went on our first date. There was no looking back after that, we knew this was a life long relationship.
We live just outside of Nashville in a neighborhood full of families. There is always something going on like family movie nights at the playground, community Easter egg hunts, 4th of July family picnics and fireworks and probably the biggest event of the year is Halloween with house decorating competitions and lots of trick or treating.
Leanne is very creative, she loves to design and make clothing among other crafty projects, and she likes to delve into like painting. She loves to read and watch movies all while enjoying a good cup of coffee. When the weather allows, you will most likely find her on a paddle board at the lake or swimming. She is outgoing, loves to have fun and laugh, is caring and compassionate, and always there when you need someone.
Dale’s passion is to work on and restore cars. This is a life long passion shared from his dad that has also helped Dale exceed in his professional career. Other than working on cars, Dale likes to be out on the lake riding his jet ski or checking out local car shows. He is loving, caring, compassionate, hard working, smart, and dependable.
Together we love to be “DIYers”. We have renovated practically our entire house ourselves to create a space that is ours to build a family in. In every decision that is made, we ask the question “How will this be best for us and our children?” We strive to create a safe, God centered home full of light, warmth, laughter and love.
We recognize the enormity of the decision you are trying to make and hope you have learned a little more about the both of us. We would love for the opportunity to sit and speak with you a little more, perhaps answer some questions that have come to you while reading our story. We have provided Miriam’s Promise with a book of photo’s to give a little more insight into our world and introduce some of our favorite people who are a huge part of our lives.
We haven’t met you yet but we pray for you and your child each and every day.
