Ohio adoptive couple Allan and Melissa supports each other in everything, and face all challenges side-by-side. Allan is a multimedia graphic designer, and Melissa is a pediatric physical therapist. They have two children: a 14-year-old daughter named Hannah and an 11-year-old son named Colin. Their family enjoys family whiffle ball games, Nerf wars, or PS3 Rock Band jam sessions.

They take their responsibilities seriously, including their commitments to their children. Allan and Melissa’s relationship with God is central to the decisions they make. They both volunteer weekly within their church community: Allan as a leader for a group specifically dedicated to fathers and Melissa in the Birth to 5th grade Children’s Ministry.
