Hello! We are Bob and Jessica and we would like to thank you for spending the time to get to know us. We are extremely grateful and beyond excited to be considered as potential parents. Even though we haven’t met, we already admire you for the strength and courage it must take to go through this process. We want you to know that if given the opportunity, we will make sure your child clearly understands the sacrifice and selfless love that led you to adoption, if that becomes your plan. We would love to stay in touch after the adoption and would always be willing to provide you with updates on your child’s progress and milestones through pictures and letters.
We consider ourselves a fun loving, active couple with a great sense of humor. We like to spend our free time exercising, biking, socializing with our family and friends and taking our dogs, Kali and Maggie, for walks. Bob is an avid golfer as well as a fan of all sports. He enjoys completing his own home improvement projects, as well as helping our neighbors with theirs. Jessica loves to knit and work on her own do it yourself craft projects. Our home is filled with an assortment of Jess’s creations such as wreaths, flower pots and candle holders. Our favorite traditions are our summer vacations down Ocean City, New Jersey with Bob’s extended family, our Thanksgiving holiday trips to the Mountains in New York to visit Jessica’s family, and Sunday dinners at Jessica’s parent’s house. We look forward to the day that we can enjoy these hobbies and traditions as a family with a child of our own.
Our story as a couple began in our senior year of high school. We were at a party with mutual friends and the connection was almost immediate. To this day we still joke about who initiated the contact, but we both agree that no matter who started it, we are very happy that they did. From early on in the relationship it was very obvious that this was something special. We would constantly talk about our future together and the topic of children always came up. There was no doubt in our mind that we wanted to have a family together.
After our wedding in 2010, we decided that we were ready to start our family. Unfortunately, fertility doesn’t come easy to everyone. After five years of struggling with infertility, we came to the realization that we would not be able to have children on our own. We were obviously devastated but being the strong couple that we are, we leaned on each other for support. The one thing that kept us going was the hope that adoption provided us. During our fertility issues, we discussed adoption on multiple occasions. Both of us were always open to the idea and the further we started to research it, the more excited we got. We started to discuss the prospect of adoption with our family and close friends and the support was overwhelming.
We truly believe that adoption is a precious gift and something that we certainly will never take for granted. We have been preparing for this opportunity our entire relationship. We promise to provide a safe and loving environment that will encourage your child to grow and succeed as a person. We will protect and guide your child every step of the way. We are so excited to be able to share our values and traditions and provide a loving, understanding and compassionate home.
We would like to thank you again for reviewing our profile. It is an honor to even be considered. We hope to have the opportunity to tell you more in person and anxiously await the opportunity to become parents and have our dreams come true.
Bob and Jessica
