We realize you are going through a difficult time trying to find the best family to raise your child. The fact that you have considered adoption is a selfless act and shows your compassion and love for this child. We hope our profile will give you a glimpse into our lives and provide confidence in our capabilities to surround your child with love, laughter and unconditional support.
We are Jeff and Lynn and have been married eight years after having dated for 1 ½ years. Jeff has a 19-year-old son and we have a six-year-old son together. We have many happy childhood memories and hope our children will build their own happy memories with us.
Jeff is an engineer and enjoys analyzing situations and developing new technologies. Lynn works for the federal government and loves her job assisting customers. She can work from home three days a week which gives her flexibility to take care of Jake’s needs and be able to attend activities. She enjoys searching for new events and taking Jake to various activities such as outdoor movies/concerts, visiting firehouses, or exploring new parks and playgrounds – to name a few. She loves to be goofy and silly with Jake and they sing together and have fun decorating for the holidays. Jeff is great at answering the many questions that come from a six-year-old and is supportive of Jake’s ideas for inventions. Jeff and Jake talk about space exploration, math problems, gravity, etc. Jeff also develops fun things for Jake like timing how fast he can run from one room to the next and setting up an indoor balloon volleyball court.
We can promise you that this child will be loved, raised in a comfortable home surrounded by family and friends, and exposed to education, culture and music. We live active lives and hope our children will also enjoy being active. We love summer time Friday evenings playing in the pool with friends and having pizza dinners, going to a field near the airport to watch planes taking off and landing, visiting water parks, working in the yard, going to the beach, long walks and fruit picking. We also love the coziness of winters and sitting by the fireplace, cooking dinners with friends, long playdates, making crafts, playing in the snow and skiing.
We are excited about getting to know you and would love to exchange letters and pictures with you throughout the child’s life. We know these will be important in our child’s life and provide a sense of security knowing where they came from and how much they are loved. We would love to learn about your family, interests, traditions, etc. so we can share aspects about your life and give our child an idea of how some of their interests may have developed and the similarities they share with you.
Adoption is an amazing process of connecting the lives of birth families and adoptive parents together and we are so fortunate to be a part of this journey. We are looking forward to welcoming a child into our family and home through adoption. We hope you are able to find the support and love you need as you face this challenge.
Thank you for considering us for this important decision.
Jeff and Lynn
