Jeff & Heather
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us! We believe adoption is a beautiful gift and cannot wait to grow our family this way. We have an amazing little boy and are excited to give him a sibling to grow up with. Our home is filled with love and laughter and we are so grateful you are considering us as potential parents for your child!
Why We Chose Adoption
It was important to both of us to have children someday, so about a year and a half into our marriage, we decided we were ready. We were so excited about our decision and could not wait to grow our family. Unfortunately a year passed and we still had not become pregnant. We decided to see a fertility specialist and he was very optimistic about our situation. Luckily, with the help of IVF, we had a healthy baby boy in January of 2016. He brought so much love and joy to our lives that when he turned one, we decided we were ready to have another baby. While Heather did become pregnant, it sadly ended in miscarriage. We had discussed adoption in the past and, instead of beginning fertility treatments again, we felt adoption was the way to expand our family. We both know that love is what makes a family and that families are created in many different ways. Jackson is such a sweet and affectionate little boy and we know we will be the best big brother! We are so excited about the opportunity to grow our family through adoption!
Our Leisure Time
First and foremost, we love spending time together as a family! We watch movies, play in the pool, run around outside, go out to dinner, visit museums and so many other fun activities together. Music is always being played in our home and Jackson will often make us laugh with his awesome dance moves! Jeff loves to play the guitar and already has Jackson interested in playing as well. Attending concerts is something we always enjoy doing together too. We also love to travel both inside and outside of the United States. It is not uncommon for us to book a last minute trip or get away for a long weekend.
While we love spending time together, we each have hobbies that we enjoy. Jeff loves to golf with friends and family and goes to the golf club, where we are members, as often as he can. Jeff also loves to watch sports, especially football and hockey. You can find him and Jackson cheering on Jeff's favorite sports team any time of the year. Heather loves reading whenever she gets a chance, whether it is getting lost in her own novel or watching Jackson flip through the pages of his favorite book. Heather is a member of a mom's group in her community and has fun spending time and learning from other moms while Jackson and the other kids play together.We love sharing our interests with Jackson and look forward to sharing them with another child!
Our Family Traditions
Traditions are such a unique aspect of a family and we are having so much creating family traditions that are special to us! We make it a priority to sit down and eat dinner together on a daily basis. We look forward to the day when Jackson and our future children can tell us all about their day. We also have a nightly tradition of putting Jackson to bed. We take him upstairs, read a book, say our prayers and tuck him tight. We can't wait to expand this tradition with another child!
The holidays are our favorite time of the year and many traditions have been created around them. Every year we go to a pumpkin patch and pick out the perfect pumpkin together! The week before Halloween we have so much fun carving our pumpkin. Recently a new Thanksgiving tradition was born! Jeff's family comes to visit for the week and we have a big Thanksgiving feast at our home. It is so fun to have Heather and Jeff's family together for Thanksgiving. The day after Thanksgiving, we put our Christmas tree up and decorate our home for Christmas. Every Christmas Eve, we get to open one present. This package is filled with Christmas pajamas, books, and our favorite candy. Then we head upstairs to watch a holiday movie together!We love the traditions we have created so far and are excited to see others that will become a part of our family!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small town that is just 30 minutes from the beach and 30 minutes from a major Texas city. This makes it very convenient to play in the sand, visit a waterpark, explore museums, attend sporting events and observe animals at the zoo. We also have the opportunity to visit NASA and learn all about space exploration. Our home is in a small gated community in a very safe, family friendly suburb. Our neighborhood has a nice mixture of younger and older couples. There are plenty of children out running around and playing during summer and after school. We love to visit the community park, splash pad, and library. The school district is one of the top districts in the area and offers a multitude of extracurricular activities for students to become involved with.
Our 5 bedroom home has a large kitchen that flows into the main living area, where we spend a lot of our time. We have a game room, furnished with a pool table, and a big media room where we can relax, watch movies, and eat popcorn from our popcorn machine! We love to entertain outside in our large backyard, complete with an in ground pool and outdoor kitchen.We truly love our home and have a lot of room for entertaining, guests, and most importantly, welcoming another child into our family!
Our Extended Families
Family is very important to both of us and are consistently present in our lives. They are all excited about our decision to grow our family through adoption and cannot wait to meet and love on another child!
We live only 15 minutes from Heather's parents and about an hour from Heather's sister, Chelsea. We get together regularly, whether it's to celebrate a birthday, go out to dinner, be together for holidays, or just to BBQ and play in the pool. Heather's dad is always talking about how Jackson needs a sibling to grow up with! We also love to travel together! This past winter, we took a family vacation to Lake Tahoe. It was so fun for all of us to witness Jackson experience his first snow! We also love to have family gatherings with Heather's aunts, uncles, and cousins a couple times a year!
While Jeff's parents and his three sisters and their families live in another state, we make it a point to see them as much as we can. Jackson's second plane ride was to visit Jeff's family and see his Aunt Kate get married! For the last 3 years, we have a new tradition of having everyone down for Thanksgiving and it is a fun filled week with lots of laughter, food, and decorating for Christmas! We love spending time together and watching all of the cousins play together!
From Us to You
Hi! We are Jeff and Heather! We want to thank you for taking the time to view our profile and get to know us. We are so very grateful and very excited to be considered as potential parents for your child. We cannot begin to imagine how you are feeling at this time, but we want you to know that we admire and respect you for the strength and bravery it takes to go through this process. We recognize that your consideration for adoption comes from a place of selfless love for your child.
We met 7 years ago while we were on vacation in Cabo San Lucas. From the instant we met, there was an immediate connection and we started a long distance relationship. For 2 years we remained in a long distance relationship until we got married in 2012. We truly are best friends who respect each other and love experiencing life together. We have built our family on that foundation and will continue to nurture that love as our family grows.
Our battle through infertility only made our marriage stronger and our commitment to each other deeper. We began fertility treatments two and a half years into our marriage. Luckily, our first round of IVF was a success and we were blessed with our sweet little guy, Jackson. Unfortunately, our second attempt ended in miscarriage. That was a difficult and emotional time, but it confirmed our feeling that adoption is the perfect way to grow our family.
We love our son so much but feel there is a piece of our family missing. We deeply desire to have another child and for Jackson to have a sibling. We want him to experience the joys of having a brother or sister to grow up with. We know he will be the most loving and protective big brother ever!
We will love and cherish your baby more than words can describe. Your child will always know how much he/she is loved and how they were brought into our family in the perfect way. We look forward to watching your child grow, learning his/her personality, celebrating birthdays and other fun events, and watching him/her play with his/her big brother. Our families are super excited to welcome another child in their lives as well. They love spending time with Jackson and are excited for that joy to double!
We can't wait to be parents again, and if chosen, your child will have an endless amount of opportunities to grow and be the unique person they are meant to be. Your child will be read to daily, attend amazing schools from a young age, and be able to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities. Your child will be supported and encouraged to discover their passions, to take risks, and to pursue their dreams. We love to travel and look forward to creating fun memories together, whether it is to visit a museum in a cool city or to play in the sand on a beautiful beach. We look forward to exposing Jackson and another child to different cultures in lots of different places.
We cannot even begin to imagine the difficult decision you have ahead of you. We pray that you take comfort in knowing that, if chosen, we will love your baby more than we can express. Adoption is such a special gift and your child will grow up knowing their story. He/She will always know about the vital role you played in us becoming a family and that your decision came from a place of selfless love. If you wish, we would love to send you pictures and letters in order to keep you updated on your child's life as he/she grows. We want to reassure you that you made the right decision in choosing us as parents for your child. We know that our forever family would not be possible without you.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us and our family. We wish you all the best and will be praying for you and your child throughout this journey.Best wishes,
Jeff & Heather
