Justin & Joy
Hi There! Before giving birth, you must have plenty of very difficult decisions to make in the near future. One important decision is whether adoption is the right choice for you. We have reached a time in our lives where it's time to grow our family and would be excited to have you learn more about us and the wonderful life your child would have should you choose us as your child's parents.
Our Leisure Time
Traveling is extremely important to us as we both have a desire to travel to new places while creating some wonderful memories. We look forward to exposing a child to different cultures and experiences as we believe that experiences like this can shape a child's life. Each year, we plan a fun, week-long vacation, typically somewhere new, and take advantage of long weekends throughout the year by going up to northern Arizona to Justin's parents' home in the mountains or getaways to the beach in San Diego. We have traveled to many different places, but by far Oahu is our favorite vacation spot as it has a good mix of relaxation time that includes relaxing at the beach, snorkeling or learning the history of Pearl Harbor.
When we aren't traveling, we enjoy spending time with family and friends. In the summer we enjoy being near the water and having BBQ's. Fall is one of our favorite seasons as it entails tailgating and watching football games. We are lucky to have a great group of friends that we consider family. Whenever we can, we like getting together to watch a game, BBQ, hanging out by the pool and playing games that both adults and kids can participate in. We cannot wait to have a child to add to our circle of friends and family.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Joy About Justin: Justin has a such a fun-loving, outgoing personality. People are naturally drawn to him. He is one of those people that everyone gets along with as he has such an easy-going personality. I knew at the beginning of our relationship that Justin would be a great father as I admired how natural he is with kids. They always seem to gravitate towards him. When I watch Justin with my two nieces and nephew, it makes my heart flutter because he is so natural with children.
Justin About Joy: I appreciate and love Joy for her great qualities she possesses. She is by nature a very loving, honest and caring person, who is willing to help friends and family in need on short notice. She is also very understanding of other people's desires such as; being there for her sisters to watch our nieces and nephew as well as allowing me an opportunity to watch a ball game or go golfing with friends. Joy is also a very patient person who is not quick to judge others. With that patience, it gives her the ability to be an ideal employee who has earned her great respect at her senior living community where she works as an Executive Director.
Why We Chose Adoption
We have seen firsthand what a blessing adoption can be and are excited to build our family through adoption. Although this will be our first time adopting personally, our family is very familiar with adoption. Adoption has touched both of our lives as Justin's first cousin, Roy, and Joy's niece, Olivia, were both adopted. When we discovered we would not be able to conceive, adoption was the natural choice for us and we can't wait to add to our family's adoption story!
We look forward to the pure pleasure of watching our child be a kid and viewing life through our child's eyes where everything is new, everything is a learning experience and viewing a world that is full of endless possibilities. As parents we want to be able to provide our child with every opportunity possible and allow him/her to be able to explore any interests/hobbies that he/she may have. We cannot wait to experience the moments of reading our child a bedtime story and witnessing our child's milestones, such as crawling, walking for the first time and a first ball game or dance recital. It will be a true blessing to watch and help them develop into who they will become while using their God given natural abilities and desires. We know that being parents will be such a rewarding experience that will be exciting and a blessing in our lives.
Our House and Neighborhood
When we purchased our home about three years ago, we were so excited as this was our first home that we bought together. We envision raising a family in this home and creating many wonderful memories. We live in a three bedroom townhome that is a great space for raising a family and hosting some family and friends who visit from out of town. Our downstairs is warm and inviting as there is open space for having family and friends over or grilling out on our back patio.
We enjoy taking our dog for walks along the green belt (a parks & recreation area) which is right across the street from our townhome development. While taking our walks, we'll see many families with their children that are out riding bikes or playing in the local parks. There are also many Saturdays where we spend time at our local farmer's market. Our neighborhood is close to a metropolitan area that allows us to take advantage of great activities that include going to the zoo, museums, sporting events, family-friendly festivals, park, etc. We can't wait to see the world thru our child's eyes when we take him/her to these venues for those activities.
Our Extended Families
We are very fortunate to have loving families who are incredibly supportive of our adoption journey. We are a small close-knit family and are blessed to have family close by. Both of our parents are retired and live close by, so there will definitely be frequent visits to our house and theirs! Justin has one younger brother that lives in Florida. Joy has two older sisters; one lives in town with her husband and their two children and the other sister lives in Ohio with her husband and their daughter. Even though we have siblings that live miles away, we get to see them on a frequent basis.
There are many holidays and birthdays that we spend together as a family. Christmas is our favorite time of the year as this creates many wonderful family memories from baking cookies with our nieces and nephew, opening presents or Justin sneaking away to place presents at the front door for our niece and nephew pretending that the Pajama Elf delivered them. We cannot wait to start our own family traditions once we have a child.
In addition to our loving and supportive family, we have close friends that we know will become aunts and uncles to this child.Our four legged child, Vino, will no doubt become fast friends with his new brother or sister. Our family and friends cannot wait for us to bring home a sweet little baby to love and nurture.
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and getting to know us better. We cannot begin to imagine what you must be feeling, thinking and experiencing during this time. We are grateful that you love your child so much that you are considering an adoption plan. We hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are at in your journey. We truly feel that a birthmother puts the needs of her child above the wants of her own.
We have been truly blessed in so many ways and we hope we will soon be blessed with a child to love, cherish and parent when the time is right. We are incredibly excited to be parents and have so much of our hearts to give. If we are fortunate enough to choose us for your child, we promise to always strive to provide a stable and loving home that is surrounded by lots of friends, family, great memories and plenty smiles and laughter along the way.
As far as how we became to be a couple, we have Justin's grandfather to officially thank for introducing us. We have been married for over four years and have known each other for over nine years. Our lives are surrounded by loving family and friends that we consider family. From the very beginning we were focused on building a strong foundation that includes friendship. We tried to conceive a child of our own and realized that we may not be able to grow a family of our own, without adoption. Both of us have been touched by adoption on both sides of our family.
Our family and friends have supported us thru the adoption process. They could not be happier for us and cannot wait to meet the new addition to our family. With our family and friends being close by, we know that they will love this little one unconditionally from diapers, through childhood, graduation(s) and their own journey through adulthood.
We are looking forward to being able to provide a child with memories that he/she will cherish that will include discovering his/her talents, desires and hopes for his/her future. There is no dream that is too big, and we promised to try our best to help him/her to reach his/her dreams. Just like you, we want what is best for your child.
If you decide to make an adoption plan, we want to assure you that we promise to write letters, send pictures, give you updates as you so desire. He/she will know they are loved by you. We promise to cherish and love your child and to provide a safe, happy home and a life with every opportunity possibly.
Thank you for taking the time to get to learn more about us. Adoption is such a special gift and we will never forget how brave you are and how lucky we would be if you chose us to parent your child. We want to assure you that if you choose us as parents for your child, he/she will be loved unconditionally. We know that growing our family would not be possible without you.
May you find peace and happiness on whatever path you take.
With respect, love and the upmost admiration,
Justin & Joy
