Jason & Sarah
We are honored for this opportunity to grow our family! It would be a blessing to care for your child and welcome them into our loving home that has already been touched by adoption. We are honored you would consider us for this sincere and beautiful journey. We admire this decision you are making that comes from strength and unconditional love.
Adoption in Our Lives
Over a year ago, our family grew through the adoption of our daughter, Penelope. Her birth family made a sincere decision to entrust us in her care and we enjoyed getting to know the amazing people that they are. The moment Penelope was placed in our arms, we learned the true meaning of unconditional love, faith and beauty; she has brought our lives so much joy ever since.
Penelope is full of life -- always smiling, laughing and testing out her new skills, including dancing. We always strive to provide her opportunities to experience the world around her, whether it is going to our neighborhood playground, the zoo, or traveling to see family in different cities. Penelope is happiest when other babies and children are around, and it will be wonderful to see her grow up with a sibling close in age. She has truly thrived in school and has a sweet nature that everyone enjoys being around. Our goals as parents are to provide her and any siblings a safe, nurturing environment to help them develop into the people they want to be.
Our Leisure Time
Making time for each other and family is very important to us. Whenever time allows, we are more active than anything! It is the foundation to our healthy relationship. Throughout our marriage, we have been fortunate to travel the world together. We have enjoyed learning about and experiencing different cultures in the process. It has been exciting to share these experiences with a child and see the world through her eyes.
In addition to traveling, health and exercise is a core part of our lives. Jason studied health and exercise science in college and Sarah has been an avid runner and wellness enthusiast throughout her life. Even when we traveled to Belgium a few years ago, we scheduled and ran a half marathon on our vacation! Otherwise, we will go on walks together in and around our neighborhood with our daughter Penelope, make a weekend trip to the mountains or beach, or make time with neighbors and their children.
We also love spending time at home watching movies and relaxing together with a home cooked meal. Our daughter loves watching us cook to music and we are always teaching her songs while she claps along. It has been a blessing to share our lives with a child and have fun along the way. We are thankful and excited for the opportunity to expand our hearts and home to another child.
Our Individual Strengths
Jason's character makes a positive impact on every life that he touches. He is very patient and kind, never turning away someone who needs guidance or a helping hand. As a leader for a senior living community, his every day job embodies these characteristics. His fun-loving spirit often involves breaking out in dance or song to lighten a mood, or simply flashing a big smile with every encounter. Jason truly sees the "glass half full" and it is exciting to see him share these values with a child.
Sarah brings passion and dedication to everything she does. Loved ones, friends and co-workers often depend on Sarah for her advice and mentorship. She is unbiased, never judges and always makes time for others. Sarah always puts others before herself and truly loves being a caregiver to our daughter. Her word is her bond. She strives to use her strengths to inspire others.
Overall, our strengths compliment one another as a married couple and as parents. The love, affection, core values and faith that we share, gives us the confidence to create a wonderful home for children.
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home is nestled in a picturesque, sidewalk lined neighborhood located on the bank of a river where you can often see families kayaking, fly fishing, riding bikes, and hiking. There are also two clubhouses, a community pool, large greenspaces and several playgrounds where children of all ages come together to play. Our community is located within 10 miles of a metropolitan city where we can go to the theatre, museums and a large zoo! Our city is also centrally located, so the beach and the mountains are just 2 hours away. We love that so many activities are available for our family to share. It has been the perfect place to raise our daughter.
A favorite part of our home is our large living room which has a cozy fireplace and is open to the kitchen where we enjoy cooking family meals. We also love the back porch, where we often entertain and share lots of laughter with neighbors and friends. Our two-story house has four bedrooms on the same floor, so a child will be comfortable and safe just a few steps away.
Our community is a great place to live and raise a family! It is a two time "Community of the Year" winner and is located in the #1 School District in the state. We look forward to providing a great education and a fun-loving environment for another child to grow in.
Our Extended Families
Our family is our largest support system and they are thrilled to welcome another child to love. Both of our parents and entire extended family live within a two hour radius of our home. As a result, family gatherings occur often and usually take place at the beach. We have 17 nieces and nephews and have special relationships with each. They are also excited for a new cousin to explore outside, play games and have fun with at Grandma and Grandpa's house!
Because our families live so close, it has been easy for them to become close to our daughter Penelope. She has loved large holiday gatherings, special trips, swimming, dancing and sleepovers with the extended family -- which are all memories a child will have in joining our family. It is a special gift to have such a large family which continues to grow each year. Our parents and siblings have been growing their families for quite some time and we look forward to all the love and guidance they will provide during this journey. Everyone is very supportive about our adoption plan and are excited to shower another child with happiness, kisses and hugs!
From Us to You
Our hearts are full knowing that you are considering us to build a future with your child. Thank you for taking the time to read our story. Words cannot express how ready we are for this chapter of parenthood, which would not be possible without your strength and courage.
In 2010, we met in graduate school where we studied health care administration. Our friendship quickly grew into love and we were married in 2013. Since the beginning of our relationship, we knew that we wanted to grow our family. In the first few years of our marriage, our goal was to build a strong foundation for our relationship, travel the world, and create a stable home to share with a child. We learned early on when trying to grow our family with children, that it wasn't possible without intervention. Through prayer and leaning on our strength in marriage, we knew that adoption was the path for us to become parents. We were then provided the honor to parent a child through the beauty of adoption in 2018, reaffirming that this was our path and what we were meant for. We are committed to opening our hearts even wider and sharing unconditional love with your child.
Currently, Jason is a leader of a faith-based senior living community where his daily responsibilities involve inspiring, growing and developing elderly residents and staff. He works with a diverse group of individuals and is able to bring them together to provide a caring environment for seniors in some of their most vulnerable years. It all comes full circle - Jason has confidence that the love, care and patience he brings to work every day are characteristics he exudes in fatherhood everyday.
Sarah is a healthcare consultant who advises hospitals on how to provide the best care possible to patients and their families. She has specific experience within children's hospitals and has devoted time to volunteering with infant care in the NICU and activity rooms for unwell children. Her passion for health care and children will undoubtedly be evident if provided the opportunity to care for your child in our home. She also has the ability to work at home with a flexible schedule, which will enable bonding from the very beginning.
Our entire extended family lives nearby and they will continue to be a very important part of our lives. We look forward to children being a part of all the activities and creating new memories that will last a lifetime. Our family is full of love and sincerity and couldn't be more excited or supportive of our decision to adopt another child. They have instilled values in us that we will carry to our daughter and a future child, which includes the importance of education, a positive attitude, work ethic and a strong moral character. We are devoted to providing a nurturing environment to ensure your child will develop into the individual that they want to be.
We are anxiously awaiting the opportunity to grow our family and provide your child a loving home. You will always be in our hearts and a significant part of this journey. We are happy to send emails, letters, pictures with stories, and phone calls to share special moments in your child's life. We have done so with Penelope's birth family and understand how important it is. We are committed to always respect and honor you with our words and actions. Our home and family will always have sincere gratitude for this brave decision you are making.
With love and admiration,
Jason & Sarah
