John & Jen

We are extremely excited and appreciative that you are reading our profile. We view adoption as a way for multiple families to come together to provide a loving and supportive environment for a child. We feel very blessed and want to share our blessings with a child. We cannot wait to discover, laugh and learn with a child in our family.

Our Religious Beliefs

So Happy Together

Our faith is very important to us. We believe that God is compassionate and loving and provides support to us in our daily lives. We plan to share our beliefs and values with our child at an early age to help guide him or her through life. We want our child to know the love of God, family and friends which will provide support for our child to be the best person he or she can be. We will help our child to understand the need to love and care for others.

We both attended Christian grade schools and high schools, and we attend church weekly. Our metropolitan area has a strong Christian school system. We will consider Christian schools along with other private and public schools for our child. We plan to always make sure our child is at the school that best fits his or her educational and developmental needs.

Dreams for this Child

We have many dreams for our child:

1. We dream that our child will always feel our love and support as well as the love and support of his or her birth parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

2. We dream of our child developing a relationship with God and knowing that he or she has a forever friend who loves him or her without question and will always be with him or her.

3. We dream of providing a wide variety of opportunities for our child that enables him or her to grow and experience the good things our world has to offer: zoos, parks, travel, sports, art, music, etc.

4. We dream that our child will live a happy, joy filled life. While we know that life has many challenges, we dream that we will be a close family and will work through challenges together and that we will choose to feel joy and happiness.

5. We dream that our child will grow to be confident and will pursue his or her dreams.

6. We dream that our child will grow to love and be compassionate towards others.

Why We Chose Adoption

We Can't Wait to be Parents!

We both love children and tried for several years to have a child naturally. After medical consultation, it became evident that we were not going to be able to have a child on our own. We chose adoption because we believe that it is a beautiful act of love on the behalf of many people. We want to share our love with a child, and we are passionate about providing a child with a caring environment where he or she can explore, learn and grow to fulfill his or her dreams! We have high school friends and a cousin who have been adopted, and we have witnessed the love they experienced in their families. We also have cousins who have adopted children. We see these children interacting with their parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins at family gatherings. We see the love and joy both the children and our cousins experience by being a family.

Our Extended Families

John's Family

We are blessed that most of our family members live close by, and we usually see family weekly. Both of our families are excited about the thought of having another child. We like to invite our family to BBQs at our home where we serve some of John's famous ribs.

We have many nieces and nephews, and they make things really fun! Attending our nieces and nephews' sporting events has become one of our favorite activities. We enjoy getting together with our nieces and nephews to watch movies, play games, bake cookies and attend professional sporting events. We both were close to our cousins growing up, and we are excited that our child will have several cousins to play with.

Jen's Family

One of Jen's sisters lives out of town. We are able to see her family multiple times a year, and our family has been able to explore Jen's sister's community and surrounding area during annual trips. We look forward to picking a new town or beach to visit as well as having a few days to just spend with each other.

In addition, Jen's grandmother lives on a farm a little over an hour away. We enjoy visiting her in the country as well as getting together with aunts, uncles and cousins for hayrides, church picnics and big holiday parties.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

Our home is located in a friendly community near a major metropolitan city in Missouri. The neighborhood is known for its mature trees, historic charm and park like setting. We enjoy strolling the neighborhood and going to the nearby shops and restaurants. We also walk to the numerous activities that take place in our community including the Fourth of July fireworks, art fairs and music festivals. In addition, we are only a fifteen-minute drive from the heart of a large city and can easily access all the city has to offer.

Our home is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. We appreciate our home’s charming high ceilings, large casings and windows; and we also enjoy a newer addition with a large family room and kitchen. We feel that we have the best of both worlds. We cannot wait to share our home and community with a child!

From Us to You

Our names are John and Jen. Thank you so much for reading our profile and considering us to be parents to your child. We consider it a great honor. We hope this letter helps you learn a little bit more about us and our plans for a child.

Even though our families grew up very near each other, we did not meet until after we graduated school. We have been happily married for eight years, and we truly consider ourselves to be soul mates. After trying to conceive for a while, we learned that we would not be able to have children. We were drawn to adoption and the idea of multiple families coming together to love and support a child. If you choose us as adoptive parents, we plan to share our child's adoption story with him or her at an early age. We will tell our child about you and your love for him or her that led you to choose adoption. If it works for you, we would love to share our child's adventures and growth with you through phone calls, letters, e-mails and photos. We would also like our child to be able to connect with you.

We feel blessed in so many ways, and we are excited about sharing our blessings with our child and providing him or her with many opportunities. We are both blessed with good jobs, and we work hard to excel at our professions. However, we also realize that life is a gift, and it should be enjoyed. We love spending time outdoors exploring local parks, grilling and working in our yard. We also like to get away at least once a year for vacation and visit an area we have not yet seen.

We have been blessed with incredibly supportive family and friends. Our child already has a large group of people that love him or her and cannot wait to meet him or her. Spending time with our family is a top priority for us. We look forward to our child joining our family at small dinners and get togethers, big holiday parties, sporting events and movie nights.

Our faith and education are important to both of us, and we were both provided many opportunities to learn while growing up. We will do our best to provide the best school and learning environment possible for our child. We know that a lot of learning happens outside the classroom. We plan to introduce our child to a wide variety of things to find out what excites him or her, and we plan to learn along the way as well! We already envision attending sporting events and visiting our local outdoor theater, zoo, farms, swimming pool and many more. We can't wait to have another reason to explore new things and to revisit some of our favorite places.

We sincerely admire your love for your child and your desire for your child to have the best life possible. While we have received many blessings, we know that a child will be one of the biggest blessings we will ever receive. Although you have not yet met us, we want you to know that nothing will make us happier than to provide a child with an opportunity to lead his or her best life.

We can only imagine that you may be experiencing a great deal of emotions and uncertainty; and we wish that God's peace, comfort and wisdom be with you.

With loving regards,

John & Jen
