Jeremy & Christina

We've been hoping to complete our family for a long time, and no words can express how humbling it is that you might consider us. We are over the moon about growing our family, and adoption feels like a journey we were meant to be on. We know there are a lot of waiting families, so we thank you for taking the time to read our profile.

Why We Chose Adoption

Having Fun at the New England Aquarium

Adoption was our first choice when we were struggling to have our son. We decided to find out what was blocking our ability to conceive and corrected only the health issues discovered. We agreed that if those health corrections didn't result in a pregnancy, we'd immediately go to adoption as opposed to seeking medical intervention to conceive.

We have always felt that what is meant to be will be. If we were meant to have children through Christina becoming pregnant, or if we were meant to journey through adoption, then that was the path chosen for us.

After the birth of our son, we chose to wait a few years to begin trying for our second child. Unfortunately, fertility issues made it clear pregnancy was no longer an option. We grieved for a time and went along with life until a year ago. That was when we looked at each other and said it was time to go after the things that really matter in life. Christina left her career and became a stay-at-home mom, and we began this journey to complete our family.

Fun Facts About Our Family:

Tommy

  • George can tell you anything you want to know about ocean life — no one better to go to the aquarium with!
  • Jeremy can fix anything. (He has yet to prove this theory wrong!)
  • Christina can play the piano upside down.
  • Our son named our dog Tom Brady — which is not a popular name outside of New England. We have decided to just call him "Tommy."
  • Jeremy hates seafood.
  • Christina will eat ANYTHING that came out of the ocean.
  • Christina learned to run at 40!
  • Jeremy and our son are both brilliant at math.
  • Christina has to use a calculator.
  • Jeremy was the first to admit it was love at first sight.
  • Cultural Diversity

    We will address cultural diversity through education, experience, and language. Cultural diversity is a natural part of our lives. Because Christina's mother and first cousin are nearby, there are two languages spoken on a regular basis. Ethnic foods are prepared and eaten on a regular basis. We also attend Christian Orthodox church which is deeply rooted in our shared heritage.

    Christina grew up looking different than her families and experienced attending schools where she was the only biracial student. These experiences left her often questioning how she belonged. Neither of her parents were able to guide her through those emotions, so the lessons and internal growing took some time, perspective and maturity.

    Should your child be in a similar situation, they will not be alone in their experiences within our family. They will be shown and encouraged to be proud of who they are. We will explore their culture with them through books, food, clothes and travel.

    Our House and Neighborhood

    Our Home

    We are new to south west, and we are exploring our beautiful state. We live in a suburb close to schools, parks, and family recreation facilities — like aquatic parks, children's museums, golf courses, and national parks.

    We also live close to a major university and enjoy going to football games with our family and their children. Cycling is huge here, and the bicycle paths make bike rides and walking very easy and family friendly.

    We've been very fortunate in meeting new friends and neighbors on our daily walks. There is always someone walking or jogging along the way and plenty of moms with strollers as well.

    Our home has an open kitchen and family room area where we spend most of our time together. We also have a living room where we practice our music and read. Our backyard has a very small garden, as well as a pool and large covered patio. The plants in our backyard attract dragonflies, humming birds and butterflies which visit us during the spring and summer months.

    Everyone has their own space in this home and a gathering space to be together. We are very comfortable here, and we plan on staying for a long time.

    Our Extended Families

    With Christina's Parents

    We both come from large extended families. Jeremy is one of three boys. Christina is an only child, but she had the privilege of growing up with her cousins — who were always just a few doors down.

    Cooking With Family

    Our families are the people we spend most of our time with. Though Jeremy's family lives in the north east, we stay in regular contact with everyone and make it a point to see each other at least once a year. Christina's parents are in walking distance, and a close cousin and her young family live ten minutes away.

    We share Greek heritage, and Greek Easter is one of our most anticipated and cherished Holidays. Christina is also part Korean and speaks fluent Korean. We always look forward to celebrating Korean New Years with her family. Both holidays are celebrated with ethnic food (enough for an army) and games like Jenga — most importantly all the family and friends we can fit into our homes.

    From Us to You

    Whenever we think of you, we are overwhelmed with love. The circumstances bringing us together is filled with so many highs and lows. Through it all, the bond that connects us is rooted in love for your child. To love someone else more than ourselves is the greatest gift there is, so there simply are no words to express the respect we have for you - and how honored and blessed we feel that you would even consider us.

    We have been married for 13 years and have a nine year old son. We met at a friend's engagement party, and it was love at first sight. We both knew we found our future wife/husband on that first day. We wish we could tell you our relationship has been perfect from the start, but it wasn't. We had to grow up in a lot of ways, and we had our share of obstacles. Thank goodness for those! We learned a ton about ourselves and our relationship. We grew as individuals, matured emotionally, and came to love each other more truly. We've learned that trust requires faith and courage to communicate our real feelings. With open and honest communication, we have trust in each other and a knowing that our love for one another is real and deep. Our love for each other is strong, and we are each other's best friends.

    Our lifestyle is fairly relaxed. An average weekend will consist of getting together with Christina's parents and extended family for Friday night movie and spaghetti, then Sunday night dinner at our house. During the fall, we hold season tickets for our local university football team, so we attend the home games with Christina's cousin and her family. We go on vacation once a year and take the long holidays at home exploring nearby attractions, playing board games, swimming, baking and watching movies together.

    As parents, we want our children to grow up feeling safe, loved and respected for who they are. We believe God created them to be special and fulfil a purpose - and that is between them and God. We will do everything we can to support them in exploring their interests. We will also make sure they are learning how to make good decisions for themselves. It is important to us to keep their light shining bright, while keeping them safe, healthy and happy - in that order. Education is a high priority, and we do everything we can to ensure success at learning - while modeling what it is to be a life-long learner. Through our everyday teaching moments and all the time in between, we will do our best to make sure they know they are loved, lovable, and more than good enough.

    In terms of our relationship with you and your relationship to your child, we are very interested in understanding what your desires are. Christina is always taking pictures, and we promise to send pictures often as well as letters about how your child is growing - things they are accomplishing, favorites, and quirks. If you are open to it, we can invite you to our online family journal, so you can view new pictures on a weekly basis. We hope you will be open to some kind of communication, so your child knows where they came from and what it took for you to make this decision. We promise to work with you to build and maintain healthy boundaries, so you know you and your child are safe, respected, and loved.

    Our vow to you is that your child will know what a miracle they are - to all of us - and how great your love is for them.

    Sincerely,

    Jeremy & Christina
