What it Means to be a Parents

Hanging at Our House

We consider it an honor to be parents. When we were selected as the adoptive parents of our son, it was an experience filled with great joy and great responsibility. We were very excited and at the same time we understood that being a parent would require much effort. Being a parent means constantly growing and learning in order to nurture someone's life. The parent is the one who, at the end of the day, is responsible to take care of their child and eventually teach them how to take care of themselves. As parents we are always thinking about providing a safe place for our child and being role models to him.

What we like most about being parents is to see the joy and wonder our child experiences while he learns how to do new things and learns about the amazing world around him. Giving our child opportunities to grow and develop as a human is true delight for us as parents. This journey has required us to be more selfless than we knew how and has brought more fulfillment than we could have imagined. We love being parents and are very excited to continue on this adventure of parenthood.

Leisure Time

Watching the Sunset Together

For our family, time spent together is precious and filled with amazement. We live very close to the beach and to the mountains, so we often go exploring for sea treasures or hiking on trails through lush forests. We have a group of families that we join regularly for easy hikes around our city, giving the kids a safe space to be curious about the world around them. Our son loves to explore and pretend, so he often leads our family on adventures during leisure time. This may involve dressing up as movie characters, pretending we are on a spaceship, or biking around the neighborhood. We also love to have a relaxing leisure time. Our home is very comfortable and we are able to spend time reading, making art, and building with Legos. Our backyard hammock is a popular place to relax and listen to the nearby birds. We enjoy watching movies as a family, snuggling up on the couch.

Our son, who is curious and energetic, often needs the down time to recharge. We love cuddling up on the couch and reading a few books to relax as a family. Reading books is one of our favorite leisure time activities.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Enjoying a Beautiful Sunny Day Together

Tiffany about Jon:

Jon has so many amazing qualities. One of the things I noticed about Jon when we first met was his ability to show kindness to everyone. He was very good at making people feel comfortable and invited the outsider in. He also is incredibly funny and can set people at ease with his humor. He is a gifted woodworker. Jon has crafted many beautiful shelves, benches, and beds for our home. I have had the privilege of watching Jon become an amazing father and I feel so blessed to walk this parenting journey beside him. Jon is my best friend and I feel grounded when we are together.

 

Jon about Tiffany:

Tiffany is one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. She cares deeply for the people and place around her. Tiffany is very genuine and does not try to act like someone she is not. She is constantly trying to improve the way she lives life. I admire Tiffany's skill as an artist. She frequently is adding beautiful original art to our home and it sparks joy for me. Tiffany has much experience taking care of kids and has a wealth of knowledge and skill in her role as a mom. I am so thankful that Tiffany is my girl and she is a joy to be around.

Our Extended Families

Nana and Papa Visit

The two of us come from large families. Tiffany has 4 siblings and Jon has 3 siblings. We speak regularly with our siblings and parents, all of whom are very excited about our adoption plan.

Tiffany's sister and brother-in-law live 4 streets away so we often spend time with them and their 2 young children, doing family dinners or play dates at the park. We are excited to make more memories when our family grows through adoption.

Hiking Adventures with Family

Although our parents live farther away we regularly spend time with them when they visit our town or we visit theirs. Trips to visit the grandparents consist of many exciting adventures, such as exploring beaches, riding golf carts, playing ball, and reading books. A child in our family will have many loving family members who are excited to meet them, include 7 delightful cousins.

Our son is very close to his 2 cousins who live in town and all three of them like to wear their matching "cousin squad" shirts. They enjoy creating games together, meeting at the park, and playing charades. Every year we enjoy Halloween trick-or-treating together around the neighborhood.

Our House and Neighborhood

Spring Flowers Blooming at Our Home

Our home is a wonderful place where we have lived for 3 years. Whether we do art projects at the table, build Legos in the living room, or play in the backyard sandbox, we stay comfortable and have fun at our home. We love cooking together in our kitchen and spend time reading together. Recently we planted a garden in our fenced backyard and are excitedly watching our plants grow and teaching our son how to take care of them. Our neighbors with young kids often walk over and play with our son in the beautiful afternoon sunshine.

We live less than a block away from a neighborhood park, which is lined with big beautiful trees and has great spaces for kids to play. We have the joy of walking to the elementary school which is 3 blocks away. Our neighborhood is very active and many neighbors spend time walking the sidewalks and greeting other neighbors. Our street is very popular for Halloween trick-or-treating and we even have our own neighborhood 4th of July parade. Every summer one of our neighborhood parks hosts a weekly live concert, where many people attend and food trucks serve people delicious food. Our walkable neighborhood is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.

From Us to You

Hello! We are Jon and Tiffany. We were married in 2010. As a couple, we have made many memories over the years. One favorite memory was when we took a 3,000 mile road trip together to visit family and see new places. We love to travel and explore. We have learned to balance each other in life - as a team we each have our own strengths and weaknesses and we continue to grow as a couple. Having a growth mindset has improved our marriage, parenting, and the way we interact in the world. We are committed to learning every day how to better support each other as individuals and as parents.

We both grew up with many siblings. Our families are thrilled to welcome a new child into our home. Some of our family lives nearby, only 4 blocks away, and they are eager to love and care for a child alongside us. We enjoy spending time with them, visiting parks, hiking, camping, and exploring new places.

Since early in our marriage we wanted to grow our family. After years of trying to get pregnant we found out we would not be able to have a child biologically. We then began the steps to adopt a child. A year to the day after the doctor told us we wouldn't have children we got the call that we had been chosen to be the adoptive parents to our son. Adoption gave us the opportunity to be a mom and a dad.

Raising a child from a different background has grown us as a family. We are committed to nurturing diversity in our home and want to ensure our son is connected to his cultural heritage. We seek out opportunities to learn about other cultures and celebrate our uniqueness.

Jon works from home as a data analyst for a financial company and Tiffany works part-time as a development assistant for a non-profit organization. We both have flexible work arrangements. Upon arrival of a baby Tiffany will be significantly cutting back her hours and Jon will be taking a lengthy paternity leave in order to be the main care giver. We are able to flex our schedules so that our kids will be home with us until they begin school.

We have been praying for many years about growing our family through adoption again. We adopted our son and are so excited for him to experience the joy of a sibling. Our son is enthusiastically awaiting a brother or sister and has already made plans to help take care of them and tell them stories. We believe our son has a unique ability to share his adoption story with a sibling who is also adopted.

We are so honored you have taken the time to learn about our family and consider us as adoptive family for your child. We look forward to getting to know you and learning how to live this beautiful adoptive life together. We would be happy to send letters, emails, pictures or keepsakes of significant moments in your child's life. We commit to fostering a healthy relationship between you and your child in our home. We respect the difficult decision you are facing and think you are very brave to choose adoption for your child. We are thankful for you and would be so honored if you chose us as parents for your child. Our prayers are with you during this time.

Much love,

Jon & Tiffany
