We appreciate your decision to make an adoption plan.
Hello! We can only imagine the mixture of emotions going through your heart and head. Hopefully, as you continue reading, you will feel a sense of ease and a smile will come across your face. Although we too are feeling some nervousness, we want you to know that we are beyond excited to take this next step with you. If we were in your shoes, we would want to know the character of potential adoptive parents, and the type of home they would provide.
Jason has been working for 15 years as a high school teacher and Greg is a director of a college teachers' union. Our experience in education is something we are dedicated to and passionate about. We feel confident that your child will have all the necessary support to be successful not only academically, but also emotionally, socially, and psychologically.
Supporting the community is important to us. We participate in charitable events and activism for cancer, the environment, and social justice, to name a few, and would like to instill those values in a child as well. You might be thinking about health and safety (we were too). Our home is spacious, safe, and inviting. Baby-dedicated rooms are ready: carpeted playroom, bedroom, family room. On a walk around our neighborhood on any given day, you would see houses on nature-filled lots, wildlife, and a friendly hello from a neighbor. The nearby parks and trails are plentiful, whether for a hike or some fun time on the playground. Moreover, our family and friends gather often, whether for a celebration or a quick visit. Our neighbors are awesome. We love exchanging foods with them - veggies and herbs from our garden, baked bread, and more. Feel comfortable knowing that your child will have a strong community of love and support. We know it takes a village to raise a child, and we have an amazing village of family and friends that we can rely on as parents.
Drop-in on a casual day and you would probably witness some silliness, laughter, and singing along to music while we prepare healthy meal options (and sort-of healthy desserts). An active lifestyle helps us burn off those calories! Bicycling, hiking, and swimming are just a few of the hobbies that we can't wait to share with a new addition to our family.
Lastly, every parent wants their child to have the opportunity to do whatever his/her heart desires. We hope this thought stays with you after viewing our profile. Our home is bursting at the seams with love to share. Any child placed with us will have an abundance of love and laughter, and every opportunity to pursue his/her dreams.
