Jamie & Meredith
We have been looking forward to expanding our family, and we are excited about pursuing an adoption with you. We are ready to open our hearts to provide a loving, safe home and family. We know this is a difficult decision for you and we appreciate you considering us to be the parents for your child. You will be in our prayers as you face these difficult decisions.
Our Promise to You
Our promise to you is that this child will be welcomed into a loving, stable family. Both of our immediate and extended families are supportive of our plan to adopt and can't wait for us to add another member to the family. This child will understand that their adoption was a result of the immense love you have for him/her, and that this was a decision that was not easy for you to make. We will always speak positively about you and your choice for this child. We will provide this child with the best education in order to meet their needs so they can become a respectful and successful person. We look forward to sharing with you your child's growth and achievements throughout their life with pictures, letters, and emails. We would be open to phone calls or video chatting if you desire. Our hearts are open and ready to share our love with this child.
Our Leisure Time
In our free time we enjoy spending time with family and friends. In the summer we spend time swimming at Jamie's mom and dad's house and grilling out for dinner. We enjoy watching sporting events with Meredith's family. We have three nieces, and we can often be caught watching dance recitals, volleyball games, and school plays, or having sleepovers at our house. We enjoy going out to eat with our friends or playing games with them and their children. Meredith enjoys photography and especially enjoys photographing nature and her niece. Jamie enjoys going to classic car shows with his dad and brother. Jamie is also interested in architecture and enjoys taking in the sights of various cities we visit while Meredith photographs the buildings. We also enjoy attending football and basketball games to cheer on our favorite teams, the in-state rivals- University of Louisville and University of Kentucky. We look forward to having a child and can't wait to make memories with him/her!
Education We Will Provide
We value education and see it as an important part of a child's development, not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. We were both fortunate that our parents were willing to make the financial sacrifice in order for us to attend private schools through high school and feel that our education helped shape who we are today. Meredith is a teacher in a private school, and it is our intention that this child will attend that school for preschool through 8th grade. With that being said, we understand that this school might not be the right fit for a child, and we are committed to providing a child with whatever education is best suited for them. Elementary years lay the foundation for a child's future, and Meredith's experience with elementary education enables her to recognize when a child needs to be challenged academically or given extra attention to strengthen areas in which growth is needed.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small, quiet town just outside of a large city in Kentucky. Our town has several family-friendly festivals throughout the year, including a Christmas festival during which families can enjoy a live nativity, and carriage rides while waiting for Santa to arrive in the parade. We live close to the center of town, so we are able to walk up to these festivals. There are several children in our neighborhood, and we have a great park with hiking trails, kayaking, a splash park, and a playground. We live very close to a large zoo, several museums, and sports arenas. We live 10 minutes from the private school where Meredith teaches, which is where this child will attend school for preschool through 8th grade.
Our house is special to us because it was built by Jamie's dad. We have a large fenced in back yard that will be great for a swing set one day. We will often eat dinner while sitting on the deck during the summer months and enjoy the sounds of our quiet town. Our favorite time of the year is decorating for Christmas and baking holiday cookies in the kitchen.
Our Extended Families
Family is very important to us, and we are blessed with a large, close-knit extended family. Our parents, siblings, and nieces are anticipating adding another child to our family with much excitement. We told our extended families about our plan to adopt while we were together for Christmas, and they cheered in excitement. Our parents are active in the lives of their grandchildren and enjoy watching their dance recitals, plays, sporting events, and graduations. Both of our mothers have now retired and look forward to taking turns watching this child during the day while we work. Our extended family members live close to us, so we are able to celebrate birthdays and holidays together, or even just spend time together hanging out. Jamie's parents have a pool, and we enjoy swimming and grilling up some burgers during the summer months. We enjoy taking family vacations with Jamie's family to the Smoky Mountains and with Meredith's family to the beach. Our four-legged child, Stella, is excited to be a big sister! She is full of energy and enjoys having children in the house. We look forward to making family memories and know our family has a lot of love to offer this child!
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We understand that you are faced with a difficult decision, and we admire you for the strength and courage you are showing by considering adoption for your child.
We have been together for a total of four years, and we just recently celebrated our second wedding anniversary. We have both wanted to have children, even before we ever met each other, so we knew we wanted to start a family as soon as we got married. Unfortunately we found out early on in our marriage that we wouldn't be able to conceive naturally. After failed fertility treatments we relied on each other for emotional support and found hope in achieving our dream of starting a family when we decided to pursue adoption. We know we have so much to offer a child and cannot wait to share our love with him/her.
We both come from large, close knit families that are supportive of and excited about our plan to adopt. Both of our moms are looking forward to watching this child during the day while we work. We feel blessed that this child will be in the loving care of family and not in a day care while we work. We are excited for our own family to participate in many of the same activities and traditions we did as children such as family vacations and holidays. We look forward to many years of vacations, Easter egg hunts, decorating Christmas trees, and trick or treating as a family. We are blessed with not only a close family, but also several close friends that we consider our family. These friends have always supported our relationship and were by our sides at our wedding as we committed our lives to each other. We enjoy spending time with them and their children by going out to eat or playing games together.
We value the importance of education for not only academic development, but also the development of character. We were both fortunate that our parents made the financial sacrifice in order for us to attend private schools through high school. Meredith is a teacher at a private school and it is our intention that this child will attend this school for preschool through 8th grade. The school is nationally recognized by the US Department of Education as a school of excellence, so we are confident this child will be provided with the guidance necessary to meet his/her potential.
We will share your child's growth and development through photos, letters, and emails. If desired, we would be open to sharing phone/video calls periodically. We are open to making arrangements for visits when the time is right if desired. We hope to maintain a relationship with you over the years so you will be able to see how much your child has grown and how loved he/she is. Regardless of how much communication we have with each other, we will always speak positively about you with this child. He/she will know that you love them very much.
Thank you for considering us to be parents for your child. Parenting this child is the most precious blessing we could ever receive. We have been looking forward to growing our family and hope to continue this journey with you for a lifetime.
