We are so excited that you are considering us to be the adoptive parents for your child. Family is the most important thing to us and we want to be able to share our love and joy of life with a child. We would be heartbroken if it wasn't for this opportunity to adopt, and hope that you choose us and give your child all the benefits this world and we have to offer.
What makes us unique is that we both started in a new community (and for Candace a new country) and have made all of our dreams come true - except for having a family. Candace went back to school and attained a degree in interior design. Her career has flourished and she has become an award-winning designer. Candace has been published in many magazines, is a local designer on HGTV.com and is a correspondent for Real Simple and Kitchen and Bath Design News magazines.
Jon also has a successful business, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary. Jon's business has won awards as Best of Western Washington, and "Best Chiropractor" for 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Besides having successful careers we have traveled all over the world including Canada, Mexico, Panama, Greece, England, Spain, much of Europe, all over the Caribbean and have sailed alone in the British Virgin Islands on a 41-foot sailboat.
We can't wait to share our adventures with a child and are very excited to begin the next chapter of our lives as a family!
What it means to be parents, and what we are expecting to like the most about being parents, is based on our experiences with our nephews, nieces and our friends' children, who call us uncle and auntie. During our time with the kids we try and go the extra mile to make them happy, and to see the smiles on their faces. The joy it brings us to be around unconditional love is very exciting to us, to have a niece give you a hug and not want to let go, just because they love you.
We are excited to be able to love back with all of our heart and watch a child grow up and to know that we have helped them to become who they are. We are excited to grow as a couple and be able to experience all that we love with a child, to show them beautiful things and see the amazement in their eyes. But, the thing we are most excited about is just being a family and having a loving child that runs into our arms and tells us they love us as much as we love them.
We believe that education is one of the most important aspects to growing up and becoming an important member of society, and would offer the child every opportunity to go as far as they wanted in the standardized school system. Whether it be public or private education we would support them both emotionally and financially through to the highest levels of school, whether it be a trade school if that was their passion or through medical school if that was their choice. We both have attained higher education, but were able to make that choice for ourselves, and we would be the same with our child. We are also able to provide an education outside the traditional sense. We are huge travelers and believe that traveling is the perfect way to explore new cultures and people. We would urge the child to explore the world and learn new languages.
