To Someone Special, We are Mike & Jami hoping to become a family of 3
We are Mike & Jami Raymond and are so very excited for you to read about us. Our journey together is an adventure, and we've built memories and experiences to last a lifetime. We hope to offer a child that same feeling, together as one family.
Our relationship is built on lots of common interests. Ever since we've been together, we've been going to concerts and movies. We enjoy watching football and hockey together. We support each other in our sports of choice. Jami runs and does performance training, while Mike is a competitive tennis player. We love taking our dogs for hikes and look forward to adding another hiker to the mix!
We have an amazing family near and far. Parents, siblings, nieces, cousins, grandparents, aunts & uncles. Family is the greatest support network and we are lucky to have such a close relationship with ours.
Jami’s Parents, Sisters & Brother in Laws
My sisters, my mom and I share a special bond. We are there for each other for every life event - good or bad. My dad and I were born on the same day and share a lot of the same personality traits. My sisters are both married to great guys it’s nice to have some men in the family. They are so excited for our adoption journey and can't wait to be aunts and grandparents again.
My parents have been by my side through every step of life's journey. I have a good combination of both when it comes to personality. Since our family is so small, they are incredibly excited for this new addition and to be grandparents for the first time.
Our Adoption Journey
Sometimes things happen that change your life and we all know it's not always good. The best you can hope for is that something good comes out of the situation. For us that is where our adoption journey began. Jami was diagnosed with cancer nine years ago, but we are happy to say that she is in full remission and great health. However, the treatments also left us unable to get pregnant.
We believe that our adoption journey will be the best possible way to start our family. Although our journey was hard and scary we realized more than ever that we have wonderful family and friends who will support us through all of our life's challenges and triumphs. When we shared with our family and friends our decision to adopt they could not have been happier!
We believe in a nurturing home where experiences are more important than material things. Education, both academic and physical are very important. We want our child to be involved with activities, sports, volunteering. We believe household chores are good for development and responsibility.
