Last Activity: 29 days ago

We are a nature loving family who can’t wait to share giggles around the fire and fun with big sis at the beach!

Hello!

We are Mark and Jodi, and we live in a laughter-filled home with our 9 year old daughter, Anneka. As a family, we love snuggling, exploring the world, and celebrating often with ice cream. We can be found ice skating or at a local theatre, catching a live show, or very likely, at the pool or beach because water play is our favorite. We know another child would thrive as part of our warm, loving, adventurous family.

Mark is a Doctor of Chiropractic, and I am a stay-at-home mom and an aspiring artist. Anneka is so excited to be the best big sister! After many years of being unable to conceive and one miscarriage, we found ourselves openly and lovingly on the journey of adoption. We are ready to welcome you, your child, and your connection with each other if that is your wish. We look forward to hearing more about how you see the future for you and your child.

Sincerely,

Mark, Jodi & Anneka

Who We Are

By Jodi


Mark and I met in 1996 when I moved from NY to Seattle to begin my massage therapy practice. In addition to my private practice, I also accepted the office manager position in Mark's Chiropractic office. We quickly became good friends, had a great time working together, and eventually fell in love.

We were married in 2004 and began the best adventure! On our honeymoon in Maui, we experienced amazing hikes, beautiful beaches, and nurtured our love for travel and exploration. We continue to enjoy traveling together and have been to Italy, Canada, and Mexico, with plans for many more trips with Anneka and the child we hope to welcome.

Our family enjoys warm snuggles on the couch while watching a movie or planning our next adventure. Our shared values include a love of great food, and an active lifestyle. We appreciate the arts, and spontaneous dance parties are a common occurrence. We find delight being in nature, whether hiking a trail, swimming in the sea or jumping in rain puddles and we make the time to do the things we enjoy as much as possible.

As parents, we are committed to connection and providing an enriched environment full of love and learning. We encourage our daughter to explore the world around her, and make decisions for herself. We support her in following her interests. We educate on best choices, suggest solutions, and keep her safe. We strive to model for her how to be a strong, smart and kind person and develop a great sense of gratitude for all she has.

We look forward to sharing the same great love, joy, connection and enriched environment with the child we hope to welcome, as we have with our daughter.

Adoption Diary

Road Trip!

We had a mid-week getaway to Vancouver, BC a couple of weeks ago to see a concert of 2 Cellos. It was a fantastic show!  We also spent a lovely day bike riding through beautiful Stanley Park.  Anneka got a chance to dance through a fountain to cool off in the gorgeous weather.  We had a great time enjoying the city, eating out (sushi and Italian) and spending time together.  We look forward to many more adventures with the child we hope to adopt!

Tender Loving Care

As I was tucking in Anneka for bed last night, she wanted me to talk about all the things she could do to help with the new baby.  We talked about holding and rocking the baby, changing diapers, helping at bath time, picking out clothes and helping them get dressed.  We also talked about making homemade baby food, feeding the baby, reading lots of books to them, playing peek-a-boo, singing to the baby, playing music with them, pushing them on the baby swing at the park, giving them lots of snuggles, dancing with the baby and generally loving on them.  She is so excited to be a big sister, and we can’t wait to share our tender loving care with the child we welcome to our family.
