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 (12) and Alyssa (9). 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.
Hola desde Florida! Somos Will y Clarissa y estamos muy contentos de expandir nuestra familia adoptando un hijo o hija. Tenemos dos hijas, Abby y Alyssa 12 y 9 años. Disfrutamos mucho ver peliculas los viernes por la noche, nuestra piscina, tener a nuestra familia y amigos en nuestra casa, e ir a los parques de diversion de la Florida. Nuestro sueño a traves de la adopcion es hacer lo que nos gusta mas – estar juntos! Estamos abiertos a textos, cartas, fotos, y visitas y mas que nada queremos enseñarle a nuestro proximo hijo o hija acerca de Dios.
We are high school sweethearts! We have been together for many years and we are looking forward to many more. Will is an IT professional, and Clarissa is a Sales Director. We like 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 the adoption journey 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.
Will is kind, affectionate, and fun! He is the loudest at any party, and nobody forgets his laugh. He enjoys his work in IT and loves the fact that it gives him the flexibility to be home. 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. Will enjoys spending time with our daughters either riding bikes, playing at home, and taking them to basketball/volleyball practices and games. 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.
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 has a passion for the Lord, a willingness to be unselfish, and always keeps our kids’ futures in mind. She has a passion for teaching others about God and loves going to the beach, have family trips to Georgia, and watching movies. 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 bonding with our next child, playing games with them and sharing with them her passion for reading.
Our daughters are such blessings! Abby is 12 years old and her favorite school subjects are math, science, and art. She is a quiet and generous soul, enjoys making others smile, and is always thinking about others. Alyssa is 9 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, Cody, is a 2-year-old Labrador mix. He enjoys watching over Abby and Alyssa and taking long walks around the neighborhood.
We live in a 4-bedroom home with a nursery ready to go and designated for your child! Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood within a gated community. One of many things we appreciate about our neighborhood is that our pediatrician lives here. Our home has 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, Cody, at sunset.
We have several parks nearby that we like to visit with our daughters. We like to explore our city by visiting new parks, and restaurants.
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.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
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. We practice our faith by helping the poor, sponsoring children in other countries, and donating to non-profit organizations that help the poor in the US and outside of the US.
|Plans For Our Children's Education|
We highly value education at our household while also respecting and valuing the unique God given gifts for each child. Besides God, education has been key for us as a family to succeed professionally and financially. Our daughters both go to a private Christian school. It is important to us that our daughters are challenged academically, but in a good and safe environment where they are encouraged to grow and practice their faith. We have college savings accounts for our daughters that will allow them to go to a state school without incurring student loan debt. We will offer the same opportunity to your child because we know that education is key for future success, whether that is college or trade school!
|3 Things on Our Bucket List|
We love to travel as a family! One of our goals as a family is to create great memories for our children before they leave the house. We would like for our children to experience different cultures and languages. We would love to visit all the states - we have visited Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia, and Puerto Rico as a family. As a couple, we have visited several countries and states. Our top three places on our bucket list before our daughters turn 18 years old to go to are Hawaii, Italy, and Israel. Hawaii has a special place in our hearts since we went there for our honeymoon - Oahu and Maui is our next vacation destination God willing! Italy is the next place we would like to visit - Alyssa is looking forward to the yummy food. Finally, we would like to visit Israel to better understand our Christian faith.
