We are Melissa and Tim from Virginia.
We both grew up in the mid-west, Tim grew up in Beloit, Wisconsin, and Melissa grew up in Chicago. Although we grew up an hour and a half apart, it wasn’t until we moved all the way across the country, that we met while working for the National Park Service in Bryce Canyon National Park. We both work for the National Park Service, and live at George Washington’s Birthplace in Colonial Beach, VA. We have been married since 2015, and have been trying to have children since then. We have undergone fertility treatments, and were able to become pregnant twice. However, we had a miscarriage at 8 weeks with our first pregnancy, and had a premature birth of our daughter at 21 weeks in 2019. We were able to spend one amazing hour with her before she passed away. Having a child has been a dream of ours since we were married, and we would love nothing else than to have that dream fulfilled. We hope that we can enjoy that journey with you, and applaud your courage!
