We want you to know that should you choose us to parent your child, we will always strive to be the very best parents we possibly can be. We are nurturing and playful, patient, value education, and live in a safe and peaceful community. We are financially secure, active, and healthy. We love adventures and being outdoors, live in a culturally-rich environment, and have the strong support of family, close friends, as well as our church and neighborhood communities in our plans to adopt.

We promise you that should you choose us to parent your child:

1. We will always honor you and have nothing but extreme gratitude for your sacrifice

Who We Are

Gosh, it's so hard to know where to begin in telling you about us and our family! There's just so much we want to share with you! I guess we'll just start with how we met and go from there... Please, if you have any questions along the way, feel free to call or text us anytime: 574-383-9317. We would love to speak with you in person!

Jason and I first met on E-Harmony while we were both living in Chicago. I (Michelle) was completing my training as a Pediatrician and Jason was working downtown. Jason is a lawyer who works in Government Affairs, meaning he helps professional organizations (currently a large doctor's group) to advocate for their needs through influencing government and legislation. I work as a physician for children from newborns through young adults in a large children's teaching hospital. It is so much fun and so fulfilling!

From our second date when Jason arrived to pick me up with his chocolate Labrador, Moosie, in the passenger seat of his truck, we both knew that we had found our soul mates in each other! We dated for about six months, prior to Jason proposing. We both felt "that feeling" that people talk about in knowing with certainty that we were going to be spending the rest of our lives together.

Jason proposed to me at his family’s lake house in Indiana during a beautiful, calm, snowy night after struggling to build the perfect fire in the fireplace. He kept asking me if the fire was "majestic enough". It was pretty funny as he's a very laid back guy, and he was so stressed that night about how the fire was coming along. Finally, I told him, "Yes, it is majestic!" and he got down on one knee and proposed to me. He put the engagement ring in a Notre Dame jacket (my alma mater) - and I was so excited about the jacket, I almost couldn't comprehend that Jason was proposing at the time. We were married soon after in Florida, near my home, with all of our family and friends present at a beautiful church wedding with an ocean-side reception. Since getting married, we have lived together in Chicago, New York City, and now Northern Virginia just outside of Washington, D.C. for the past almost seven years, where we have made our home.

We both come from extremely close and loving families. We have both always known that we wanted to become parents, so we could pass along our traditions, share our experiences and all of our love with our children. However, we soon realized we wouldn't be able to have our own biological children. While that is tough news to handle, and after struggling through unsuccessful fertility treatments for a year, we readily embraced adoption as a means to build our family and share our love. Choosing adoption was an easy choice for us, as we know many people who have adopted or have been adopted. We now dream of the day that we can bring a precious child into our lives and share with them all of the love we have in our hearts.

As you look through our profile pages, please know that we are here for you. We welcome the chance to get to know you and to walk with you on this journey to the extent that you desire. We can't imagine what you must be thinking or feeling right now, but please know that we care, and we hope to have the opportunity to listen to you and to learn from you as well. We are ready to welcome you and your child into our family with so much love, and to support you throughout this process. You are in our hearts and our prayers!

Adoption Diary

Bring on the Weekend

It’s Friday! Nearly every Friday morning is a reason to smile - especially this one. Today is sunny with Fall like weather. We started the weekend a little early with catching a baseball game last night. So many little kids were there. Big eyes, little hats, and so many little baseball gloves - all with the hope of catching a foul ball. This weekend there will be bicycle rides, an art festival at one of the nearby neighborhoods, and likely a ride to the country to see some of the early leaves changing colors. We can’t wait to share these weekend adventures and more with a child. Hope to hear from you soon.

Monday Thoughts

This is such an exciting time in our lives. Each day is filled with opportunity and I am very lucky that Michelle shares that same approach to life. Yesterday was beautiful - the sun was bright, the air was warm and we visited the pool for the last time this season. To end the weekend on a high note we drove an hour or so to an island in Maryland to try crab for dinner. It was my first time eating crab and for that matter using a malet with dinner - who knew this was an option?

So many opportunities with each day and each weekend. We hope you will give us the opportunity to meet you soon and that you will allow us the opportunity to be parents to your child. We hope to hear from you soon.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Jason & Michelle
