Community/Neighborhood: Our apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood, tucked back away from traffic. We have an apartment facing the woods and it is pretty quiet. There are lots of children around to play with. We also have a fenced in pool at the apartment complex along with a nice playground set for the children to play on. We also live close to the library, parks and schools.

Holidays: We spend holidays with both sides of our families. We love being surrounded by family. We both have huge extended families which make for great holiday events! We can't wait to share those memories and traditions with our children.

Vacations: We have always gone on a vacation every year since we have been married. Sometimes it has been with Jessica's parents and sometimes just the two of us. We can't wait to start a yearly family vacation with our children.

Family Gatherings: We spend a tremendous amount of time with family. Family is extremely important to us. Jeffrey's side of the family has ten adopted children in it and we can't wait to expand those numbers through adoption. We have yearly family reunions to keep in touch with our extended family. We want our children to know they are loved by all of our families.

Dear BirthParent,

We would like to start by thanking you for your brave and courageous decision to consider adoption.

We are Jeffrey and Jessica. We began dating in high school and were married in May of 2007. We have a very strong and special relationship, having literally grown up together. Our lives have been challenged in many ways but it has only made our love for each other stronger.

We are incredibly excited to expand our family through open adoption. We will provide our children with the love and support that they need to explore all their interests. Our child will always know their birth story and know how caring and wonderful their birth parents were to give them the best life that they could.  

We live in condo style apartment close to schools, parks, libraries and the lake. We have a dog named Mia, and a cat named Miko. We have a large extended family that consists of ten adopted children. Our family is as exited and anxious as we are to welcome another child into our family.           

Jessica works as a legal assistant for a small law firm. She finds her work to be very challenging and rewarding. Jeffrey is a business education teacher.   

We thank you for taking the time to read our letter. We know this is just a glimpse into our lives but we cannot wait to meet you and get to know you as well. You will continue to be in our prayers.
