Hey there! We are Jason and Courtney and we are really honored that you are looking at our profile and hopefully considering us. We can’t imagine how hard this process is for you. We just want you to know that a child that we adopt will be loved so much, and raised in a home full of laughter, fun, and filled with great experiences.
We met in 2002 and got married in 2005 on a wonderful fall day, surrounded by friends and family. It was so much fun. For the first few years after we got married we just enjoyed our life together - we bought a fixer-upper house, traveled quite a bit, and then decided to settle down and start a family. That proved to be pretty difficult. We tried fertility treatments for a number of years and then after many disappointments and much heartbreak, decided that it was more important for us to be parents than to actually go through a pregnancy. We realized that dream in late 2015 when a baby girl was born and we were chosen to parent her. It's been the greatest honor of our lives, and such an adventure!
We enjoy taking yearly trips to the beach and the mountains - we try to go to one or the other every year. When we go to the mountains we enjoy setting up our camp site, relaxing, and hiking for a few days out in the wilderness. Jason went to school in Montana and will always have a passion for the outdoors. And even though the mountains are his first love, he also enjoys visiting the Florida panhandle beaches with Courtney. While there, we like to swim, go paddle-boarding, and read on the beach.
While we have enjoyed ourselves and been fortunate enough to travel and pursue some of the things we love, this has been a product of hard work. Both of us grew up having to work and set goals for ourselves. We worked our way through college and careers, and any child that we adopt would have this principle value among many others. Education, creativity, and pursuit of bettering one’s self is something that would be encouraged in our home, and we are in close proximity to some of the best schools in our city.
We have a large extended family that shares holidays and special events, and these friends and family are excited to welcome any child into our lives. Some of the most important things to us are our family and the special moments we share with them. We have a four bedroom home with a large fenced backyard for a child to run and play and share with us and our dogs. Our home is where we entertain and welcome family and friends to enjoy each other’s company.
We believe that adoption is a gift of love and takes a lot of courage. We have a deep respect and admiration for the loving consideration of your choice for adoption. We feel that a child is one of life’s greatest blessings and are committed to sharing the birth story with the child from the beginning. We would very much like the opportunity to stay in contact with you. It is important to us that you know your child is loved and well cared for. We hope to share life’s joys and milestones through the years with you.
Thank you for taking the time to read our letter and considering us for a potential fit for your child. As you consider your options we wish you the best in your decision.
Jason and Courtney
