Hello, we are Marc and Myra. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us. Our story began in 2013 when we met online thru a dating website. We talked for months, getting to know each other before deciding on meeting up. On our first date, Marc surprised Myra by flying from IL to PA to meet her, and we fell in love. Our relationship started as long distance for several months, then Marc proposed at Christmas and we got married in 2014. We lived in IL for a little over a year before deciding to move down to TN in 2015 where Marc had a job offer within the same company he is working for.
Since we first got married, we have dreamed of having a family together. After years of trying to get pregnant on our own, we sought to ask help from a fertility doctor and found out that the only way for us to get pregnant is through In-Vitro Fertility Treatment. We attempted IVF between 2018-2019, Myra got pregnant with a baby girl but unfortunately, she had a miscarriage. We were heartbroken but decided not to continue with IVF and try another route through adoption. In 2020, we decided to become foster parents and open our home to children in need also hoping that we may be able to eventually adopt through foster care. But God had a different plan and those kids we fostered were reunified with their birth parents. We are still hoping and praying that maybe one day, we can expand our family through adoption and become parents.
A few things that we think that make our relationship strong are our values and commitment to each other. We are both family-oriented people, we like to spend quality time together, talk about our future, put in an effort in our relationship and support each other in good times and tough times.
MEET MARC through Myra’s Perspective:
My husband Marc is a loyal, sweet, hard-working, loving person. When the going gets tough, he is there to comfort me and encourage me to focus on the positives. I truly feel blessed to have him by my side. It’s the little things that he does like getting dinner ready when I come home from a long day at work, or baking me my favorite cheesecake just because, that I love about him. He also doesn’t shy away from household chores and taking care of the kids we fostered in the past. God has blessed me with a great partner in life that I can rely on and I am forever thankful. One of his hobbies is building and fixing things. He has completed so many home projects, he is a handy man. He is good at problem-solving. He enjoys his job drafting metal buildings and is good at it. He has worked for the same steel building company since 2006.
MEET MYRA through Marc’s Perspective:
Myra has many wonderful qualities and I quite frankly couldn’t imagine a life without her in it. She is a kind and caring person. She pushes me to improve and do better. She has been a nurse since 2005 and is committed to giving her patients the best care. She will be a good mother to our future child. I have watched her be at her happiest being a mother to the children we have fostered. Watching her teaching and helping the children grow and improve makes me proud of her. One of her many talents is that she has an amazing eye for decorating. She will find beautiful paintings and other items at thrift stores and decorate the house so that it looks collected and well curated.
