Todd & Holly
Hello! We are grateful and feel honored that you are taking the time to look at our profile. We are excited to grow our family again through adoption. We adopted our son, Jase in 2014 and we cannot wait to share our love and home with another child. We realize this is a difficult road you are walking and we respect you and admire your strength.
Adoption in Our Lives
Adoption has changed our lives forever! The day we met our son was the best day of our lives; words cannot explain the love and joy he has brought into our lives. From the moment we held him in our arms we knew we had just received the greatest gift we could ever imagine. We were fortunate enough to meet Jase’s birth mom and her family prior to the adoption and were excited to see them all again when we got to the hospital and were there for Jase’s birth. We feel blessed to have shared that time with our son's birth family.
Today, we share messages, send photos and letters throughout the year to keep his birth family updated on all of his milestones. We have the utmost love and respect for Jase’s birth mother. He will grow up undoubtedly knowing what a beautiful person she is inside and out.
In addition to Jase, our nephew Evan was also adopted at birth in 2010. Holly’s sister and her husband, too, have an open adoption. Adoption is talked about openly in our family and we are excited for another child to share a special adoption bond with Jase and Evan. We cannot wait to open our hearts, our home and our lives again through the selfless act of adoption.
Our lifestyle is very active and healthy but remains Christ and faith-centered. We attend church regularly and make giving a priority. Todd works hard as the primary provider for our family and Holly is a stay-at-home mom, which we consider a wonderful blessing in our lives. During the day Holly stays busy with different activities planned for her and Jase throughout the week. They go to swim class, attend tot-time at our library, play at the park, visit Grandma's, have play-dates with friends, or some days they just stay home and do finger-painting or play in the yard. We are home as a family each night for a home-cooked dinner together. Our weekends are spent hiking, going to farmer's markets and visiting apple orchards in the fall. Additionally, Todd spends time enjoying his passion of hunting and fishing – and he can’t wait to share this passion with our kids.
We have some great family traditions that we enjoy now more than ever! Our typical Thanksgiving includes a large family gathering with lots of wonderful food, a fire in the fireplace and football on TV. After we eat, we head out for a long family walk. This kicks off the start to one of our favorite holidays, Christmas! We begin by going with Holly’s family up north to cut down our Christmas tree. We get hot chocolate, take a hayride and find the perfect tree to cut down. Then we head home to decorate our tree while listening to our favorite Christmas songs.
In the spring we plant a pumpkin patch at our family’s cabin. Then in the fall we harvest the pumpkins and give them away to family & friends. Another tradition we have started is a summer vacation at a condo with Holly's family. There, we go to the beach, play in the pool and spend time at the local farm feeding the baby animals. We also have our Saturday morning bakery run. We get up early and walk down to our local bakery for our morning donuts and coffee. We are especially looking forward to doing this as a family of four!
Our House and Neighborhood
We love the community we live in! We have the best of both worlds here. Our new home is located in a country setting with lots of space, wildlife and many acres for us to play on, yet we are only 15 minutes away from a major metropolitan area. We have an amazing sledding hill we had a blast on this winter and a brand new swing set for the warmer months.
Our community has some of the top-rated schools in the state. There are numerous sporting activities for kids to participate in. Jase has already had fun playing soccer. Our community also has splash parks, hiking trails, great parks, sledding hills and paint & play classes we attend and enjoy!
Our home is a sunny three-bedroom, two and a half bath ranch home with a walk out basement. Our living room has a large cozy fireplace we use all winter long with high cathedral ceilings and an open kitchen where everyone can gather together. Our home is a peaceful getaway from the outside world. We love to have our family and friends over to relax and enjoy great food!
Our Extended Families
We are both very close to our families. Both of our parents live in our hometown a couple of miles from each other in the homes we grew up in and our siblings, nieces and nephews are all within 15 to 30 minutes from where we live. We spend a lot of time with our families and Jase loves playing with his cousins. Todd's brother and his wife have a cabin a few hours from home where we spend many enjoyable weekends with them and their two girls. Todd's parents enjoy taking family vacations and have taken our family to Disney World on several occasions.
Holly's family is very close and family get-togethers are filled with laughter, fun and wonderful home-cooked meals. Holly's family also vacations together every summer where we go to the beach, play in the pool and visit the farm where the kids get to feed baby farm animals. Children are extremely important to both of our families and this child will be surrounded by so much love!
From Us to You
We are Todd and Holly. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We hope our profile will convey to you our love, values and commitment to each other and our desire to grow our family through the beauty of adoption. We are ready to provide your child with everything he or she will ever need: unconditional love, family, patience, kindness, understanding, educational opportunities and a home filled with hugs, kisses and lots of I love you's; I love you to the moon and back, I love you to infinity and beyond.
We have been together for over 10 amazing years and have been married eight years now. We are best friends and have so much love to give. Before adopting our son Jase in 2014, we went through several years of infertility, miscarriages and even the loss of a baby boy at 28 weeks into our pregnancy. All of this was very difficult but through those challenges we became stronger as a couple and realized adoption was how we were meant to become a family.
We have been preparing for this adoption and are very excited to welcome another child into our lives. We are looking forward to that moment when we get to hold this child in our arms for the first time. We cannot wait to rock them to sleep at night, read to him or her, teach them silly songs and introduce them to our love and enjoyment of being outdoors. Our son Jase loves other kids and we know he will be very excited to welcome a new brother or sister into our family. Jase is a kind and loving little boy who will look forward to being the big brother. We are also looking forward to introducing this child to all of their cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents and great-grandma who will be anxiously awaiting his or her arrival.
In our free time we love to travel and spend time with our family and friends. We also love being outdoors. Todd is our primary provider and has a family-friendly, flexible work schedule. Since we adopted Jase, Holly has given up her career to be a stay-at-home mom. It has always been Holly’s dream job to be a stay-at-home mom and she has discovered that it is even more joyful and fulfilling than she had ever thought.
We have been blessed in so many ways over the years and live our lives each day with an attitude of gratefulness for all that we have. We have prepared ourselves emotionally, financially and spiritually to welcome another child into our home. Please know that your child’s memories, birthdays and accomplishments will be shared with you through letters and pictures so you can see your child grow into a successful, strong and confident adult. Our experience with our son’s adoption, our nephew’s adoption, as well as, other friends and family members adoptions, have been such a positive experience for us. We look forward to this child sharing this special bond with big brother Jase and cousin Evan.
We truly feel honored that you have taken the time to read about us. We have a deep respect and admiration for your loving consideration of adoption for your child. As you make this important decision, please know that we promise to love your baby with all of our hearts and will provide them with everything they need to be happy, loved and protected. We feel that children are a gift from God and are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to embrace this child.
May God guide you as you consider this selfless and difficult decision. It is our prayer that you will feel peace and confidence in your decision.
With all our love and respect,
Todd & Holly
