Justin & Jenna
We feel immensely grateful that you are reading our profile. We have been looking to expand our family for the last few years, and are very excited about our adoption journey. We hope after reading this profile that you get an inside glimpse of who we are. Our life is filled with love, support, family and lots of laughter.
Our Leisure Time
One of our favorite hobbies is shark tooth hunting. We live about an hour away from a beach that is known for having fossilized shark teeth. Going to the beach is fun, but this makes it so much more enjoyable for us! We have all the needed equipment and have started a collection of all the teeth that we have found.
We also enjoy attending local sporting events, especially hockey games. We live in a town that has a minor league hockey team, which we love to cheer on and support. It has a very family friendly fan base that offer fun nights such as Marvel Theme Night, Teddy Bear Toss, Star Wars Night, Pet Night and other fun activities for families.
Justin's favorite hobby is golfing, and living in Florida is the perfect place for this! Both of our parents live in retirement communities with golf courses, pools, and restaurants. Justin enjoys golfing with both his father and Jenna's father, and often all 3 go together. Jenna is not a golfer, but takes that time to spend with her mom at the pool enjoying the Florida sun. Jenna enjoys tending to her many succulent and cactus plants, and can't help but add to them with every Home Depot or Lowe's trip they make.
Our Pups, Maggie & Brewster
We are completely obsessed with our two dogs, Maggie and Brewster. Maggie was in our wedding, where she walked down the aisle with Justin, and anxiously awaited Jenna's big arrival standing by his side. They have given us so much joy, laughter, and love. They are very well behaved, and we even get complements when we take them to local festivals and events with us. We have friends with children and the dogs love being around them, especially when food is involved. Brewster likes to think he is a master bird dog, although he has never caught any. Maggie is a master at finding lizards and loves chasing them around our backyard. Jenna loves planning our Christmas card around different Christmas themed photo shoots with both of them. We can't wait to add a baby to that Christmas tradition!
Fun Facts About Us:
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a ranch-style home with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large fenced in backyard and two dogs, Maggie and Brewster.
We love where we live because of the proximity it has to so many different places, activities and events. We are only about three hours from Disney World, and less than an hour from the beach.
Our neighborhood is a pleasant mix of different families, ranging from retired couples to young children. We live a street away from a community football field, and only a few streets away from a community park and splash pad. We love being able to hear football games on Friday nights, as well as the smell of popcorn while we are sitting outside.
Our city has a lot of festivals and events every year. Music festivals, art festivals, holiday events, parades and fairs are all common in our area. They even bring snow to our Christmas festival, and create a sledding hill for the children. July 4th is always so much fun because we can sit on our front porch and watch multiple firework displays!
Our Extended Families
We come from different types of families, but both are loving and caring. Justin comes from a big Italian family. Many of them love to visit Florida in the winter, and take vacations to our area. His Dad lives part time in Michigan, and part time in Florida, close to our home. Justin's brother is married and has two children that are active in baseball and dance. They live in Michigan, like the majority of Justin's family. Every year, the extended family gets together for Christmas Eve where all the little ones exchange gifts and even get a visit from Santa. They have started to rent out halls because no one's house can fit the ever growing family! On average, Christmas Eve involves over 50 people including aunts, uncles and cousins. It is loud and Italian proud, with lots of food and laughter!
Jenna's family is a bit smaller, but with just as much love. Her parents moved close by a few years ago, and are thrilled about our adoption plans. Her brother and his wife live in Oregon, and visit often. Her sister is married with two children that are active in baseball and theater in Michigan. Jenna's family gets together for family reunions that involve an on-going tournament between siblings called the Golden Dragon Games. They have all been so supportive and caring through our adoption planning, and can't wait to add another family member!
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to read more about us. We appreciate you considering adoption for your child, and hope we can convey what our lives would look like with your child at the forefront. We can't imagine the difficult decision you face in choosing a potential family, and we have faith that you will choose what is best for you and your child.
We have known each other for over 10 years, and have been married for the past 5. We have watched our relatives and friends expand their families, and began to realize this was something that we also wanted. We struggled with fertility issues, but knew in our hearts that adoption was always possible. Our main desire is to be able to add a child to our family so that we can share our love, hopes and dreams. A child isn't going to fill a void for us, but instead expand the love we already have.
We realize the importance of your child's story. We plan on sharing his or her adoption story from the very beginning. We don't want them to think of being adopted as being different, but rather something that makes them unique and special. It will be important for us to include you in the child's story, if that is something you desire. Your consideration for adoption only emphasizes the love you have for your child, and that is something we will always convey to him or her. You are an important and vital part of the child's story, and we will always hold you in high regards, respect, and love. We are open to different forms of communication such as pictures, emails, and even visits, if that is something you are comfortable with. We want to make sure you know how much we will love and care for your child, as will be evident in communication.
We are both blessed to have the parents that we do, growing up in stable and loving environments. Our hope is that we can also raise a child in a loving, stable, committed, and caring family. We want to share adventures, traditions, and many special moments with him or her. We value education and a strong work ethic, and will guide a child in whatever choices he or she makes regarding their future. We will encourage individuality, creativity, self-love, all while instilling a strong sense of moral values.
We look forward to sharing our lives with a child. Our families, community and friends have so much to offer for our expanding family. Whether it be simply helping cook dinners, taking the dogs on their nightly walks or enjoying Grandma and Grandpa's pool, to different experiences like Disney World or their first concert. From sidewalk chalk fun to family Christmas Eve's, we can't wait to be able to show a child the life we have to offer.
Thank you for taking the time to read through our profile. We know that you have a very difficult decision to make, and want you to know that we are sending you an abundance of positivity and support to surround you no matter what choice is made. We can't wait to expand our family, and we hope we are able to show you the opportunities, love and stability that we can provide.
Peace and love,
Justin & Jenna
