To Someone Special,

We are Jason and Leslie. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us here. We are deeply grateful to be considered as adoptive parents for your baby. We promise that with us your child will always be safe and loved unconditionally. Your child will know how much you love them and your decision will be honored every day in our home. We are interested in an open adoption and figuring out what you feel comfortable with. We believe it’s important that your child knows where they came from, has the opportunity to cherish their heritage and be able to explore their identity with all the support and encouragement we can provide. We promise that with us, your baby will have our total commitment to the best education and health care, and plenty of time and support for discovering all their special talents and interests. We promise to nurture your child with all our love and care, and with all the love, care and commitment of our families. Our sisters, brothers, parents, nieces and nephews are all waiting along with us to bring a new child in to our family. We hope with these pictures and words we can provide you with an idea of what life would be like for your baby with us.

Why adoption? We have always discussed the possibility of adoption, even before we were married and suffered years of infertility. We have many close adult friends that were adopted and more friends that have created their families through adoption of all types—transracial, domestic, and international. We strongly believe in the beauty of adoption and we feel very prepared to support your baby in all that adoption means and requires. Your baby will be welcomed into our home as a cherished member of our family with our whole family to adore and care for them. We believe in the benefits of an open adoption for many reasons, and we are prepared to explore what that would mean with you. We are open to and welcome any ethnicity.

We are waiting patiently to find our match with you.

Love,

Leslie and Jason

Who We Are

We were introduced 14 years ago by friends when we were both traveling for work. Our first date was that week on the dance floor at a party. We danced all night, something we still love to do together. We danced all night at our wedding before eating late night chicken and waffles. We have been married for six years and counting. We love our partnership and have the ultimate respect, trust and love for one another, which is the foundation to our small family. We both come from large, loving families and we know the advantages of having siblings who are our best friends, confidents, and supports in this life. We are inspired by our experiences growing up with brothers and sisters to add to our family. We both work in the arts and this is a very important part of our lives—our jobs take us all around the world learning about history, culture, language, food, design and architecture. We both grew up traveling with our families all over the world and we continue that tradition and gift with our son Silas. We are very active and love to be outdoors--skiing, hiking, biking, swimming and more. We love a bustling household full of kids, fun, food, art and life.

We will raise our family to be respectful and compassionate towards all people and with a deep sense of gratitude for all the blessings we have been given in this life. Some of ur most cherished values are honesty, friendship, forgiveness, patience, resilience and hope. Education, hard work and dedication to our chosen fields are a core foundation in our lives. We will compassionately nurture our family throughout their schooling by supporting their unique learning styles at each stage to help develop a structure and foundation of passion for life-long learning. Of course life brings challenges and is always unpredictable. There are unexpected or unwelcome experiences around each corner for every person no matter how privileged they are, we know that well. We want our children to know themselves wholly, and to have the coping skills and wherewithal to weather the difficult moments as they will surely come. We will parent be example of how to accept, process, and ultimately use any adversities to grow, learn and be a stronger person for it. We believe in each child’s uniqueness and individuality, and as parents we want to support that personal exploration throughout their lives. Our children will know they are valued and loved unconditionally no matter what. They will know that their uniqueness is is always accepted, appreciated and celebrated. We promise to ourselves and to you and our children that we will be there to create joy in their lives, and help them to create joy for themselves as a source of strength, confidence and happiness. As our parents have done for us, we will be an endless source for support and guidance throughout their lives. We want our children to be active, responsible participants and citizens in their communities and we will lead by example through our own activities and actions. We understand the world is a complicated place and that we have grown up very privileged. We will help our children navigate this complex world through their opportunities and more importantly by understanding other’s adversities.
