Hi! I'm Jennifer and I live in Jacksonville, Florida. I appreciate you taking the time to get to know me and I can't wait to learn more about you and the hopes and dreams you have for your child.
I have so much respect for you and I admire your courage in considering adoption for your child. I realize that it is a tough decision to make but I want you to know that your child will grow up in a supportive, nurturing and loving home. I'm excited to become a mom and give a child a life full of love, opportunity and adventure!
I grew up in Jacksonville, Florida as part of a close-knit family consisting of my mom, dad, two younger brothers, and younger sister. Growing up, we would spend tons of time outside at the beach, playing sports and making up games to play in the yard. Being the oldest of four children, I was usually in charge when my parents were out so I spent a lot of time entertaining and preoccupying my younger siblings. We are all grown up now but still love to spend time together and fortunately we all still live in Jacksonville. My wonderful, loving and supportive family are all so excited to welcome our newest member. My mom lives around the corner and is counting on daily Grandma time. She is already making room at the table for a high chair at “Sunday Family Supper” and has even started planning our first trip to Disney World! My dad builds cars and is excited to take his grandbaby for joyrides around town. My brothers are ready for all sorts of outdoor adventures and my sisters can’t wait to be Aunties. They have already started designing the nursery!
I have always enjoyed school and learning new things. I graduated from college with a BA in psychology and have a Masters in Social Work. I love being a social worker in Child Protective Services. I manage a program where we work with families who have children at risk for abuse or neglect. Our mission is to provide services to these families to keep them together in a safe environment. I am fortunate that my job allows a very flexible schedule so I will be able to attend all of my child’s school and extracurricular activities. I am eager to go on field trips and help with homework in the evenings. I also can’t wait to see which kinds of activities my child will enjoy. We might spend evenings at the baseball park, go to dance recitals or maybe just have a movie night at home.
