Jonathan & Danielle

We have longed to be parents for many years and are so excited about adoption! We are thrilled to begin this journey with you and have so much love, laughter and FUN to share with your little bundle of joy. We know you have such a difficult decision ahead of you and want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers every day. Even though we've not met, we love you and appreciate all that you are doing.

Open Adoption

Beautiful Hawaii

Openness in adoption is a beautiful thing and something we look forward to (with your permission). We both feel it will be a blessing for your child to have many people who love and care for them throughout the years.

We imagine making a decision about future contact with an adoptive family is not one taken lightly nor is it an easy one. We want to assure you that whatever you decide, contact wise, we will support you. While we feel openness in adoption is crucial for your child's sense of identity and belonging, we will defer to you as to how you would like to handle your involvement.

We would also be remiss if we did not acknowledge the sadness that comes with placement of a child and the uncertainty of not knowing how your child will do throughout the years. So, please be assured, we are committed to keeping you updated and involved in whatever manner you would like. We know one of the scariest decisions of your life is to place a child for adoption and not knowing whether you will see him or her again. And even though you don't know us, our word is our bond. You have our word on this. You are your child's first mom and love. You will always have a place in our hearts. There are truly not enough words to describe the love and appreciation we have for you already. You, as the birth mother, are the reason we will become a family. Know that as the birth mother, we admire and thank you for your undeniable selfless gift.

Why We Chose Adoption

The journey towards adoption began very early for Danielle. When she was six she was diagnosed with the chromosomal disorder Turner Syndrome. Due to this syndrome, Danielle was informed that she would not be able to bear children. It was devastating to hear. Knowing Danielle wanted to be a mom, even as a young child, it was hard to know and understand why I wouldn't be able to have babies. My mother told me, "God created you so that your heart would grow big enough that you could parent a child through adoption." It's funny that even as a young child, I knew that adoption was the way I would parent. And, you know what? I couldn't be happier!

When Jonathan and Danielle began dating in 2014 she was nervous to share this part of her story with Jonathan. There was no need to be nervous, though. Jonathan's response was simply "Oh. Okay!" As they continued to grow in their relationship and eventually marry, Jonathan processed what his journey to parenthood would look like. It would mean letting go of the idea that he would have a biological child. As they began the adoption journey together in 2018, and experienced the joy that their niece brought them, it became clear to both of them that this was something they were meant to do. Build our family through adoption. We both are so very excited about this and cannot wait to add you to our little family!

Our Professional Lives

Celebrating Boeing's 100th Anniversary

We are both passionate about our professional careers. It is a blessing to find meaningful careers doing what you love. And, while both jobs can keep us busy, family always comes first. We are both fortunate to work for great companies that support a healthy work life balance. In addition, Danielle's chosen profession has numerous opportunities for a flexible work schedule so that she may work from home or part time allowing us to be home and available to your child.

Since the age of 3, Jonathan has had a love of airplanes and flight. Drawing on his love of flight and strong spatial reasoning skills, Jonathan studied aerospace engineering in college. After graduating in 2006 he started his career at The Boeing Company. Jonathan currently works in the aircraft accident and investigation group. After an incident occurs involving a Boeing aircraft the airline can ask Jonathan's team to review the flight data to provide insight into why the incident occurred.

Danielle combined her love of math (especially algebra) with her love of business and economics to pursue a degree in accounting. After earning her Master's in Accounting in 2009 and successfully sitting for the CPA exam, she began her career as an auditor. Danielle currently works as the Assistant Director of Financial Reporting and Policy where she researches accounting guidance to ensure transactions are recorded correctly.

Our House and Neighborhood

We found the best of both worlds when we bought our home three years ago in a semi-rural community in Washington. Our backyard has an acre of land for dogs and children to run and round and play. Our favorite room in the house is the family room where we like to sit by the fire and watch a good movie or sporting event. We have a wonderful set of neighbors that we enjoy watching football with and live only a short drive away from an amazing park and swimming pool. It is a blessing to look out our back window and only see trees.

What's great, though, is that we are only a 30-minute drive away from both Bellevue and Seattle, Washington! Both cities provide a multitude of cultural experiences. We have been able to attend national Broadway tour performances, country music concerts and Seattle Mariners games. In addition, we have loved being able to take our niece to the Woodland Park Zoo and the Museum of Flight.

Finally, our parish is at the center of our community. Danielle serves as a lector and has previously volunteered on the Confirmation team. Jonathan has previously volunteered with youth group and as Eucharistic Minister. It is a thriving parish focused on families with young children. Our favorite part of Mass is seeing the children bring up our gifts of food for the community to the alter.


Our Extended Families

In Hawaii With Danielle's Family

We both come from very close families. Danielle grew up in Eastern Washington with her parents and younger siblings, Luke and Lauren, while surrounded by her large extended family in the area. Her father is an engineer and her mom is an educator. We enjoy visiting throughout the year to go wine tasting and celebrate holidays and family occasions. Last year we were lucky enough to even spend Thanksgiving with Danielle's family on a vacation to Hawaii!

Jonathan's Family

Jonathan grew up in Temecula, California with his parents and younger sister Julia. Jonathan's mom now lives in Arizona, and we love to visit multiple times per year to get a taste of the retirement lifestyle and some Vitamin D! We are very fortunate that Jonathan's sister and her family live so close to us. Many weekends have been spent together enjoying what the Pacific Northwest has to offer, and our niece Madeline has been great at training her Auntie Dani and Uncle JB for what is to come! One of our special memories together was being a part of Madeline's first flight from Seattle to Wisconsin to visit Jonathan's extended family and attend a family wedding.

This child will be the first grandchild on Danielle's side and only the second on Jonathan's side, so they are sure to be spoiled rotten!

From Us to You

First, let us first say thank you. Thank you for considering the beautiful gift of adoption, and thank you for considering us as prospective adoptive parents for your child. We cannot begin imagine what you are thinking and feeling at this moment. We consider it an honor that you are even reading this letter. Know that we have been praying for you to be blessed with the gift of wisdom to make the best decision for you and your child — no matter what that decision may be.

We waited a long time to meet each other, but the wait was worth it. We met in April 2014, and married in April 2016. These last four years have been filled with a few challenges, lots of laughter, adventure, and love. What is special about our relationship is that we respect one another and we truly enjoy hanging out together! Some of our fondest memories to date include taking road trips to engage in activities that remind us of our childhood (like indoor waterparks and amusement parks), spending time with our families, and experiencing Ireland and Fiji for the first time together. We like to believe that we bring out the best in each other and that we are better together as a team rather than apart.

We both come from very supportive families, and always have dreamed of raising a family together. From the very beginning we knew that our journey to parenthood would involve adoption as Danielle is unable to carry a child. After growing in our marriage and spending lots of aunt and uncle time with our niece, Madeline, our desire to parent has only grown stronger. This child would be spoiled with love from excited grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousin. Our Golden Doodle Wilson also can't wait for a buddy to run in the backyard with and go on walks with.

From the very beginning we plan to be open with this child about their first family and their adoption story. One way we plan to explain their adoption story is that they grew in their first mother's womb and heart, but it wasn't the right time for her to take care of them. Therefore, she decided to ask adoptive parents to love and care for them. What is so special about this is that they also grew in their adoptive parents' hearts before we even met!

As we have moved through this process, we have learned how essential open adoption is to a child's well-being. It is so important for a child to be able to reconcile their biology and biography. To that extent, please know that we are open to continued contact with you should you desire it. This would include regular exchanges of e-mails and pictures, periodic phone calls and annual visits.

We have lots of hope and dreams for this child. Hopes that they always feel loved and safe, that they feel empowered to be who they are called to be, and that they always feel supported in their endeavors. Having a wide range of experiences helped both of us growing up, so we hope to expose this child to a variety of activities and travels to help them find their passion. This may or may not include Danielle sharing her love of baseball, the Washington State Cougars and musical theater and Jonathan sharing his love of golf, swimming, and aviation. Education is vital and we plan to provide them with an education that sets them up for success in life as an adult, whether that be a college education or a trade/vocational program.

We have so much love to give, and we love fiercely. Should you decide to place your child for adoption we hope that you could consider letting us love you and your child fiercely.
