Jason & Sarah
We are thankful and excited for this opportunity to become parents! We have so much love in our lives and it would be a blessing to share this with your child. Our hearts are full knowing you would consider us for this journey. We look forward to all the love, life. and laughter ahead.
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 will be exciting to share these experiences with a child and enable us to see the world through their 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 hikes together in and around our neighborhood, make a weekend trip to the mountains or beach, or make time to play with our nieces and nephews.
We also have a blast just getting cozy on the couch watching movies or catching up on our latest TV series with a home cooked meal. Often, we will bring out board games or cards and joke that the winner doesn't have to do dishes! It will be such a blessing to share our lives with a child and have fun along the way.
How We Met
We met in 2010 while attending graduate school to obtain a master's degree in healthcare administration and policy. We both had a passion for devoting our careers to the health of others and our community. Through this common interest, we quickly formed a strong friendship and spent time studying and socializing together with friends. After a few months, that friendship grew to love and soon after, marriage.
During this time, Sarah had just become a new aunt and was spending most of her free time with her sister and family. Jason quickly discovered the strong bond between Sarah and her Niece and knew it was the way to her heart forever! We spent a lot of time with Sarah's baby niece, taking her to the beach, the aquarium and the playground. This strengthened our relationship and made it clear that parenting was important to both of us.
Our families have always played a large role in our lives. The first time Jason visited Sarah's family was during Sarah's Grandmother's 90th birthday. Jason was introduced to five siblings, several nieces and nephews, uncles, aunts, cousins, and family friends. He was immediately welcomed with open arms.
What it Means to be Parents
Becoming parents will be such a blessing in our lives and we understand it is a great responsibility. To us, being a parent means supporting a child through thick and thin and helping them develop into the individual that they want to be. It means providing unconditional love, a helping hand and guidance as they walk through life. It means providing stability, education, opportunities and most simply, affection. Our home and family is ready to welcome a child with open arms and we cannot wait to be parents.
We understand that becoming parents will be the greatest challenge we will ever have, however, we know that we will parent with grace, faith, love and admiration. We have a large support system and are excited to share this with a child. Our hearts are full moving into this chapter of our lives and know that it will be the highlight of our love story.
Our Extended Families
Our family is our largest support system and they are thrilled to welcome a new 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 or mountains. We have 15 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 parents live within 10 miles of each other, it will be easy for both sets to become a large part of a child's life. Large holiday gatherings, special trips, swimming, fishing, putting on dances and sleepovers with the extended family are all memories a child will have. It is a special gift to have such a large family which continues to grow each year. Our 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!
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 2 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 take advantage of the theatre, museums and a large zoo! In addition, our city is located in the middle of the state, so the beach and the mountains are just 2 hours away. We love that so many activities will be available for our family to share.
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 a child to grow in.
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 may not be a possibility unless we adopted. Through prayer and leaning on our strength in marriage, we knew that adoption was the path for us to become parents. We are committed to opening our hearts 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 will be characteristics he exudes in fatherhood.
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 a child 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. They have instilled values in us that we will carry to 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 a 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 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
