Jeff & Lynn
Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us! We are very excited to start this adoption journey. We have been married three years and have worked hard to prepare our home for a precious child. We have so much love and joy in our hearts that we can't wait to share it! Thank you for taking the time to consider us to be the potential parents of your child.
Jeff's passion is cars and anything to do with cars. He loves to work on his '73 Plymouth Duster, and take it to car shows. A perfect afternoon for him would be to take a long drive around town in his muscle car. He also loves NASCAR, and watches their races every Sunday during the season. He grew up playing with slot cars, and replicating race tracks out of popsicle sticks. Jeff is super excited to share his love for cars with future children.
Lynn's passion is cooking and baking. This is a fairly new passion which started after she received a stand mixer as a gift from their wedding. She loves to make many baked goods, and use Jeff as a guinea pig for recipe testing. A job that Jeff never turns down. Lynn is the designated cake maker for birthday's, and she loves to come up with different cakes based upon each family member's personality.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Jeff About Lynn: The thing I admire most about Lynn is her desire to serve others and her ability to support and encourage others to achieve their dreams. She is always the one who steps up and encourages myself and our family and friends when we are faced with difficulties and helps gives us the little nudge it takes to get through the rough spots. She is always available to talk and provide a second point of view. I feel that this will be a wonderful quality in raising a child and giving them the encouragement they need to achieve all of their hopes and dreams.
Lynn About Jeff: What I admire most about Jeff is how selfless he is. He would do anything for anyone at any time. He never thinks of himself first and always puts his family's needs above his own. When there is something that needs to be done, he will just do it without even having to be asked. He loves deeply, and his happiness comes when other people are happy. I am so blessed to have him as a husband, and I know he will make an amazing father. I can't wait to see him grow as a parent, and I know our children will be blessed by him.
Adoption in Our Family
We have been blessed by adoption in many ways. Although this will be our first time adopting personally, our family is very familiar with adoption. Jeff's grandfather was adopted, and has since become the source of all family history. Lynn's sister and brother-in-law are currently fostering to adopt their 4-year-old daughter. She has brought so much joy to our family and we can't imagine life without her. Additionally, our cousin and his wife adopted their twins several years ago, and it has been so awesome to watch their family grow and bond together. Lastly, another cousin (who had struggled with fertility for many years) adopted embryos and gave birth to their son via surrogate. To see their happiness and joy come alive because of their son has been the greatest gift. We know that any adopted child that comes into our home and our family will always be welcomed with open arms and will have cousins who have a similar story to theirs.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in Southern California. We just moved into a large home in a new neighborhood with the intention of growing our family. Our favorite room in the house is the game room. It is a great place to hang out together. We also love our backyard because we can play with our dogs and lounge by the fire pit.
We feel blessed to live in such an amazing part of the country; not only because of the amazing weather all year around, but also because we are so close to many attractions and areas of interest. If you drive an hour in any direction from our house you can either be at the beach, in the mountains, or in the desert. We are also less than an hour away from Disneyland, Universal Studios and the Los Angeles Zoo.
We love to be out and about, and our neighborhood is perfect for children. We are close to several parks and one big city park. Our city park is fairly new and has walking trails, hockey rink, swimming pools, community center and several play grounds. We love to take our dogs to the dog park.
Our Extended Families
Our families are very similar. We both have parents who have been married for over 35 years, and we also have one sister each. We are blessed to both have supportive and loving families. Lynn's family has been touched by adoption in many ways. Her brother-in-law is adopted and he and her sister just welcomed a little girl into their home through fostering. Lynn also has two cousins who have adopted children into their home. Jeff's paternal grandfather was adopted as well. We are happy to have family who are very comfortable with adoption, and we know this child will grow up with cousins who have a similar story to theirs.
Our family loves to travel. We make it a point every year to go on a family vacation together. Each member takes a turn choosing where the next vacation will be. This a fairly new tradition, but so far we have been to Hawaii, Disney World and are currently planning a trip to Ireland and the UK. Going to new places and experiencing new cultures is nice, but our favorite part of each trip is the dedicated time being spent together.
From Us to You
Hi! We are Lynn and Jeff, and we are so thankful that you are taking the time to learn a little more about us. We have been married for three years and been together for a total of six years. We met online, and the one singular item on Lynn's profile that attracted Jeff to hers was that she liked fast cars and owned a Mustang. Even though such a small detail of similar interest brought us together, we were inseparable from that day forward. Together we have strengthened our bond through a shared love of country music, travel, and experiencing new adventures together. It is also a coincidence that we both attended the same university at the same time, and even though we never met in person at that time, we were still destined to be together.
We are blessed to be surrounded by family who are so excited to meet your child and bring them into the family as one of their own. Both of our parents have been married for over 35 years and we look up to them when it comes to marriage and raising a family. Being together and spending time together as a family is one of our top priorities. We lean on each other when times are rough, and we celebrate with each other when times are good. We know that your child will feel the love and support that we have felt for so many years. We think our parents are just as excited to become grandparents as we are to become parents!
We have built a wonderful life together. We have good careers, a house in the suburbs, and two dogs. We are now at the time in our lives where we wish to expand our family! And if we are blessed to do so, that is where you come in! While it may never be possible to have children of our own, we are so excited about the possibility and opportunity of adoption. We can never fully know what you are going through at this time, sifting through dozens of profiles to select a family for your child. What we can tell you is that we will be here for you before the baby is born and after the baby is born. We hope to do be as involved during the pregnancy as you are comfortable with, and we will make sure that you are kept up to date with the progress of your baby through pictures, emails, phone calls or whatever you are comfortable with. We know that our relationship with you will not end at the hospital, and we are excited to share with our baby their adoption story and how much their birth mother loves them and cherishes them.
We promise to love your child unconditionally, and provide the best possible life we can give. All we know is the love that we have for each other, and we can't wait to experience the kind of love that comes with being a parent.With Love and Gratefulness,
Jeff & Lynn
