Waiting Families

The following families are families that are currently waiting to adopt through Inheritance Adoptions. They have met all of the eligibility requirements of this agency. All couples receive a home study and training through Inheritance Adoptions.



Austin and Amber


We are Austin and Amber Whitehead, and we are both school teachers. Austin teaches history at the Junior High level, and Amber teaches American Sign Language as a foreign language credit. Our students are a joy to work with, and we look forward to having our own. We are active in our church, and love our church family. We help out with children’s church a few times during the year, and enjoy being around them. We also have friends and family with young children, and we enjoy babysitting them when we can (and mainly just loving on them). We love to travel, go antique shopping, watch movies, or just hang out at home. We are looking forward to starting our family through adoption, and raising them in a loving, Christian home.




Rodney and Megan

Rodney works as a Senior Underwriter for a financial company, and Megan works as a Lab Quality and Compliance Officer for a company that conducts lab testing of all types.  We have been praying and dreaming of having our own family for years.  Rodney enjoys watching most sports, but especially likes to play basketball and baseball.  Rodney also really likes to hunt, fish, and spend time at the family farm.  Megan enjoys all kinds of crafts such as creating scrapbooks, cards, invitations, party decorations, diaper cakes, and unique gifts for friends/family.  Megan also enjoys exercising, especially running.  We are involved in our church and are very close with our fun church family.  We have a passion for Texas Country music and attend concerts when we can.  We’ve gotten to go on some fun trips over the past several years and we’re always up for a new adventure.  We spend lots of time with our family and friends.  Our plan is to raise a child in a loving and nurturing, Christian home.  We admire the love and courage you have in considering adoption for your child and we would love to support you through this process, any way we can.





Ryan and Holly

thumbnailWe are Ryan and Holly.  We cannot wait to add a precious child to our family through adoption.  We are both nurses, Holly is an ICU nurse and Ryan works on a Cardiac unit. We live in a small city just North East of Dallas.  Ryan has an adopted sister and the Lord began working on our hearts long before we met to want to grow our family one day through adoption.  On our days off we enjoy spending time together whether that is out fishing, shopping around town, hanging at home with our dogs and cat or spending time with family.  We are very involved in our church and are committed to raising our child in a loving Christian home where they will know that they are loved unconditionally not only by us but most importantly Jesus.  When we started this process we began daily praying for our birth parents and their selfless sacrifice. We cannot wait to meet the child the Lord has planned for our family.




Van and Kelle

We are Van and Kelle Marsalis from just outside Dallas, Texas. Van works as a financial analyst and accountant for a large company while Kelle is a vice president at a non-profit organization. We enjoy spending time together and with our extended family, going to the lake, riding bikes, and cooking. We have lots of nieces and nephews and have been lucky to babysit, go to their games, and even take them on a trip. We spend our free time cheering on our favorite baseball and football teams, the Rangers and the Cowboys, playing golf, boating, and shopping. We also love to travel whether it be a weekend road trip or longer vacation in places like California and Boston. We are about to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and would love to add a child to our family through adoption and surround them with love, faith, and family.
