We met 19 years ago and dated throughout college. We have now been married for 14 years and remain very much in love. Our marriage is built on respect, love, and communication. We have always known we wanted to grow our family and adoption has always been a part of our plan. When we learned that we could not have biological children, we knew adoption was the path God created for us. Jen is adopted, as are many of her cousins, making adoption a very natural way to grow our family.
Jen is a physician specializing in Maternal-Fetal Medicine and cares for women with complicated pregnancies. Jen has always known that she wanted to be a doctor. As a physician, Jen interacts with people from a variety of different backgrounds regularly. The most fulfilling part of Jen's job is helping mothers through some of the most challenging times in their pregnancy and working with them to achieve positive outcomes.
Chad is a high school football coach. His job allows him the opportunity to work with kids and serve as a mentor to them. A large part of his job is listening to his players and being a sounding board for whatever is going on in their lives. He loves watching his players mature and grow as individuals both on and off the field.
We are excited for the future and can't wait to explore the world through the eyes of a child. We wanted to wait to adopt so that we could provide every opportunity for a child. We are now at a point in our lives that we can devote ourselves to growing our family. Our careers are established, we are involved in our church and community, and we are eager to be parents! We look forward to experiencing the joys of parenthood and celebrating every milestone along the way. We are fortunate to have come from two amazing families and have great role models for parents. Our families are thrilled that we are starting this journey and cannot wait to surround a child with love.
We promise that we will provide a loving and nurturing home. Our child will always know their adoption story and you will always be honored for the decision that you have made. We will share pictures and letters/emails, if you desire. Family photos are extremely important to us. We make sure to capture both the special and the everyday moments.
Adoption is a big decision and a lifelong process. We believe God has a plan for us and our family. We trust that when the right opportunity comes along, everyone involved will know it in their hearts. Until that time comes, we will continue this amazing journey together.
Thank you for your strength and the courage to consider adoption. We couldn't grow our family without your selfless gift. We know this is a difficult decision and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers throughout this journey. No matter what you decide, trust that you are making a difference in many lives.With the Utmost Love and Respect,
Chad and Jen
