Dear Expectant Parents,

First of all, we want to tell you how much we appreciate you taking the time to look at our profile. We cannot imagine how difficult this decision must be, but we deeply respect you and admire your ability to undertake such a loving act. We hope that as you learn more about us, you will feel reassured that, if you choose us, your child will always be completely loved and well cared for.

The most important thing we want you to know about us is that we love life and understand what really makes it worth living. Neither of us grew up with a lot in terms of material possessions. As children, we were both taught a strong work ethic, which enabled us to face challenges as adults and achieve success while remaining very down to earth and appreciative of the small things in life. We know that what matters most is the relationships we have, the commitments we make, and how we push ourselves to succeed. We will teach these things to our child. We are family oriented and very stable. With so much to give, we cannot wait to welcome a child into our family.

Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the opportunity to present ourselves to you.

With complete respect and love,
Jerry & Lonna

Who We Are

We met one another through mutual friends when we were very young adults, dating on and off over a period of 10 years. We went our separate ways for another 10 years, but when we finally met again, we knew our relationship was meant to be. Just recently, we celebrated seven years of marriage. Because we love one another so much, we want to share the joy of having a family together. It is the right time, as we are at a point in our lives where we are financially secure and emotionally stable.

We have been thinking about adoption for the last five years and have taken the time to better understand everything that is involved. Friends who are adopted, as well as family and friends who have adopted, have given us important insights, helping us better understand the experience of the adopted child. They will continue to be resources for us to lean on in the future.

Both of us enjoy flexibility with work, which will allow us a lot of time to spend with our child. Lonna can even bring him or her to the office! Our parents, who are retired, are also excited to help out.

Everyone in the family is looking forward to the new addition. Jerry has a brother and sister who are both married with kids and live in Rochester, about one hour away from us. Jerry’s dad simply adores grandchildren and does lots of babysitting, and Jerry’s mother, who lives just a bit farther away, feels the same. Lonna has two sisters, both with big families, and her parents live just an hour away, too. Having family so close by means we can get together regularly, which we truly enjoy, especially during the holidays.

Both of us have a strong work ethic, but also appreciate our leisure time. We are active and love the outdoors, where we enjoy hiking, biking, golfing (we both belong to a golf league), and walking the dog together. We adore our dog Buddy and recently started attending dog agility classes.

Because we have access to tickets through Jerry’s employer, we have a great time attending all the professional sports that are available here in Minnesota, including football and ice hockey. It’s super fun, and we’re looking forward to doing this with our child. Jerry plays sports and will love teaching them to our child (if he or she wants to learn, of course!).

For indoor pastimes, Jerry trades stocks and studies investing, and Lonna enjoys playing cards, shopping at consignment stores, and cooking.
