Jason & Jennifer
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential parents for your child. Over the last few years we have looked forward to our family growing and we are ready to welcome, support, nurture and love a child. We hope to continue the blessings of adoption as Jason was adopted as an infant. Together, we look towards the beginning of the next chapter of our lives.
Adoption in Our Lives
Jason was adopted as an infant and has always talked about how happy and grateful he is to be an adopted child, who was welcomed into a home with open arms and loving hearts. With this experience, adoption has always held a special spot in our hearts.
Since very early on in our relationship, we always knew we wanted to be parents. The last few years have been a whirlwind of a ride for us and an infertility diagnosis was not the news we were expecting. It has been a bumpy road to come to the realization of losing many of the traditional options to grow our family. With that said, we had always talked about adoption and were more than ready to embark on this new chapter of our lives.
With Jason being adopted, he has always talked about being able to give a child the same wonderful chance that he had been given. We are excited about adoption and are looking forward to bringing home our new baby very soon!
Our Leisure Time
We love to travel. As the son of an airline pilot, Jason has been traveling since before his first birthday. We take small day trips during the year, and love to vacation in the summer for weeks at a time. We travel both domestically and internationally and love spending time together. We particularly love to sight-see historical places and anywhere with water.
Some of our favorite places to go are: Cozumel, Mexico; Washington, D.C.; Hilton Head, South Carolina and anywhere we can enjoy our love of water and golf. We are both avid SCUBA divers and Jason is a great golfer. Jennifer is great at driving the golf cart and providing sage advice.
As sports fans of the University of Georgia, we can be found watching their football and hockey games, either live in person or at home.
We also love to barbecue and hang out in the neighborhood or the backyard. Our next block party is sure to be a blast. With more than fifteen children ranging in age from a year to college on our street alone, there is never a dull moment!
What We Look Forward to About Becoming Parents
Jason About Jennifer: When I say that Jennifer will be the best mommy ever, I really mean that. We both know that the addition of a child to our family will make our lives just that much better. Jennifer is so ready to be a mommy she can't stand it!! With our friends having children and especially her niece being born she has been able to prepare herself for being a mommy. Jennifer is looking forward to having our own baby, rocking them, feeding them and much more. Thinking of how happy not just she will be, but how happy we will both be, brings tears of happiness to my eyes.
Jennifer About Jason: Jason loves children and he shows this with his niece that was recently born. A small trip to visit her and he just couldn't stop talking about her and playing with her. Jason has spent lots of time around children while at work and he uses the daddy role to help calm those that are in need of his training. Our new baby will have Jason wrapped around their little finger from the day they are born. He can't wait to bring them home and take care of them. He also can't wait to spend some very special daddy time with them.
Our House and Neighborhood
The subdivision that we live in is a family/child oriented one in north Georgia. Our beautiful home has 5 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths and a media/play room. It has an open floor plan on the first floor combining the family room, formal living room, dining room and kitchen, where we spend a lot of time. The backyard is completely fenced in with a level yard which is great for playing with our dog, Addy. We can see a perfect area for a swing set in the future. In the evenings, we generally move up to the media room for work, play and movies. There will be a lot of family time, birthday parties, Hanukkah evenings, Christmas mornings and other holidays spent in this house.
Our large neighborhood includes a park, playground, tennis courts and a community pool at it's center. There is even a kindness group for the kids. A mountain preserve is across the street and is filled with multiple walking trails. One thing that drew us to this subdivision was finding that it was a child friendly area. Children can be seen spending lots of time outside playing and they are always saying hi and being respectful. It is a very secure and safe neighborhood according to local crime reports. There are great schools nearby. We consider our immediate neighbors close friends and we all support one another when needed. We love living here and can't wait to raise our children here.
Our Extended Families
As in the south, family is extremely important to us both. Jason's mother lives close and unfortunately, his father is no longer with us. Jason's mother is retired and loves spending her time with the animal rescue group that she volunteers for. Jason is an only child and makes sure to dedicate time to taking care of his mother too. Jennifer's parents are divorced; her father lives in Pennsylvania and her mother in Mexico. Jennifer's father still works for a business that was started by her grand-father and her mother is retired. Jennifer's parents visit often, her mother visiting the most. Both of her parents re-married early in her life and unfortunately her step-father is no longer with us either. Jennifer has a sister that is married and lives in New Jersey with her husband and infant daughter. Her sister and brother in law both work in the retail business at the administrative level. These are just some of the family members that will welcome a new baby into our loving home.
From Us to You
We would like to thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We cannot even fathom how difficult a decision this is for you, and we greatly admire your strength and courage in planning for your baby's future.
Since early in our relationship, we always knew we wanted to be parents. After many years of highs and lows we learned that the traditional route of having kids was not available to us. Shortly after hearing this news, we accelerated our journey towards adoption.
Currently, Jason works as a chief of training for a local fire department. After many years of hectic schedules and working on a firetruck, he now works a more traditional Monday through Friday job and he's home for dinner at night.
Jennifer has been teaching elementary school for over seventeen years. She loves working with students and seeing them reach and surpass their goals. Our jobs give us the amazing opportunity to interact and influence others in our community.
We want you to know that your child will be welcomed into our loving and stable family. We met over eleven years ago and have been married for the past eight years. We are incredibly excited for the future. We take advantage of every opportunity we can to be together, both alone and with our families and friends. Our home has become a popular gathering place and we look forward to hosting many more gatherings that will include your child.
Both of us have a love of history and science. With these and our love of travel, we enjoy taking trips that are both fun and educational. As we have learned in our positions teaching others, we know just how valuable these life experiences can be. We look forward to participating in as many of these opportunities as a family as possible.
As a child of adoption, Jason has been keenly aware of the importance for the openness and honesty that it entails. He feels incredibly blessed to be loved so selflessly by his birth mother that she made the decision to place him for adoption. He feels he, and now we, were always meant to pursue adoption as one of our options. It is recently that we learned it would be our main option.
We love to share family stories and welcome the chance to share updates with you on your child's life, growth and experiences. We will happily share photos and updates in letters with you as your child grows. We will always be open and honest with your child and welcome any information you would like for us to pass on.
We will ensure your child knows how much they are loved, by everyone in their life. We will make sure they are aware of how hard of a decision this is for you, to allow us to privilege of sharing your child's life with them.
Words cannot express how ready we are to become parents, and we know that it would not be possible without your love, strength and courage.
With our utmost love and respect,
Jason & Jennifer
