Jackie and Jason

Our family of four would love to add a baby girl to our Utah adventure life.

Hello,

We are Jason and Jackie, hopeful adoptive parents living in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thank you for visiting our profile and taking a moment to get to know us. Whatever brought you here, if your world has been turned upside down by an unexpected pregnancy, we wish the best for you and your baby. If you are struggling at this time, we send you support and encouragement in your decisions.

Our family of four hopes to welcome a baby girl to our life. If you choose us as your adoptive family, we promise to love your child deeply, to provide security and education, and to support her interests in order to build a successful future.

Parenting has been the most rewarding and challenging experience for us. We love raising our two biological sons, nicknamed Buddy and Peach, who are 8 and 4 years old. But we've always envisioned a family with three children, and adoption has been part of our conversation since we first met a decade ago.

After giving birth to Peach in 2015, Jackie became ill with a life-threatening infection and was lucky to recover without serious injury. We took her illness as a sign that adoption should be in our future. Fast-forward three years and we are ready to open our family to another child through adoption. Given the dynamic with our two boys, we hope to adopt a baby girl because we believe it would bring some helpful balance to our family. We also are interested in open adoption if you are willing, knowing that children thrive when more people know, love and support them.

We have completed our home study, and are pursuing independent adoption with a Utah-based lawyer and social worker, but we are ready and able to adopt from any state. We would gladly work with an adoption agency if you are connected to one.

If you would like to learn more about us, please read on, or contact us directly via e-mail or phone. In the meantime, we wish you well on your journey as you make decisions for yourself and your child's future.

Warmly,

Jackie and Jason

Who We Are

"It's an Ohio thing..."
With those words, we met for the first time at a party in 2003. We don't remember what the "Ohio thing" was, but we were instantly drawn to each other when we realized we both grew up near Akron, Ohio. We stood talking for the next two hours, ignoring everything else around us. We went on our first date to an Italian restaurant a week later and discovered the strong connection was still there. For the next five years we dated, mostly over long distance, between Jackie living in Montreal for medical school and Jason moving between New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Colorado for work. We proved our committment to each other, and that absence does make the heart grow fonder!

In 2008, we got married in Ohio (of course!), and lived for the first years of our marriage in Pennsylvania for Jackie's medical training. Then we moved west to Utah, drawn by the mountains and jobs. Eleven years of marriage later, we have two beautiful sons, two lively dogs, two careers that we love, and a comfortable home. We love each other more than ever, and we actually still really like each other too!

Adoption Diary

3rd grade!

We are so proud to see Buddy going off to 3rd grade!  He’s going to have a great year.

Polar Bear with a Pickle!

Peach and Jackie went with dear friends to the Utah Hogle Zoo today and had a great time.  The highlight was seeing one of the polar bears play in the water with a giant toy pickle!

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.
