Jacob & Jennie

Hello, we are Jennie and Jacob. Both of us were born, raised and reside in Texas. We currently have two older children, Kylie and Jaret, 16 and 13 respectively. We have a large, loving family and have always dreamed of being able to share our love and blessings with another child.

Our Lifestyle

Hanging Out at the Arcade

Our lifestyle is very family oriented and we love spending time with family. Both of us have large extended families and not a weekend goes by where some of them are not at our house. We have many nieces and nephews that we enjoy watching grow up.

Headed to Cozumel!

Our family loves to travel, and we make it a point to go on a vacation each year. Our vacations have included going on cruises, taking trips to resorts, annual trips to the beach in Texas and annual camping trips.

In our leisure time at home, we enjoy taking our dogs for walks in the neighborhood, relaxing in the hot tub or out in the sun by the pool. We work out together in our self made gym and enjoy hiking at McKinney Roughs or along the river in town.

We enjoy attending the sporting events of our children and watching them do what they enjoy. We are an active family and are excited to add a little one to our family to enjoy life with.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Jennie and Jacob!

Jacob's perspective on Jennie: 

Jennie has many amazing qualities that would be easy to go on and on about, but I wanted highlight specifically why she is and would be an amazing mother. Like mentioned before, she is the "Mom" of the family. Mom can mean many things; loving, caring, patient, unwavering, and yes she fits all of these descriptions. But, her love goes further and deeper. She has helped raised all of her nephews and nieces and continues with the recently added twins(Dalton & Emmett). Her patience and kindness goes above and beyond anyone I have ever known. She was a corner stone in our church's baby and childcare center, along with our family. Jennie loves all children and has taken steps to use her law degree towards social work for children and families. Her nurturing love surpasses what I thought was possible for a human and believe God as placed her in this path. There is no one more deserving and suitable for this. So this is why I admire her. 

Jennie's perspective on Jacob: 

Jacob is the most amazing husband and an even more amazing father to our two children. Jacob came into our lives and shouldered the responsibilities of parenting two pre-teens. His patience, understanding and love are immensely inspiring. He developed such an amazing relationship with both of the children as if they were his own and continues to amaze me daily with his witty/fun parenting skills.

Our Children

We have two children from Jennie's first marriage. Kylie and Jaret.

Kylie is 16 years old, she has an amazing heart for people and wants society to have the care she has for others. She is dedicated to church and is very strong in her beliefs. She is an amazing athlete who loves volleyball, basketball, soccer and working out with us as a family. She attends high school at Colorado River Collegiate Academy where she doubles as a college student. She consistently makes the honor roll. She plans on attending Texas A&M university for Ranch Management, due to her love for animals, especially horses.

Jaret is 13 years old, he is very active in sports and loves playing video games, like most boys his age. He has dyslexia, a learning disability which makes it difficult to read and write easily. He has amazingly overcome this challenge and is striving to be an A/B student. He loves exotic cars and enjoys playing outside with his friends. He also has the knack for taking things apart in order to see their inner parts and how things work together. We are excited to see where his future takes him.

Our Extended Families

Headed to the Water Park!

We both have rather large extended families which primarily reside in central Texas. Both grandmothers live within 30 miles and are actively involved in our lives. Frequently, there are numerous family members over along with close friends as we like to enjoy each others company.

Watching the Horse Race

We enjoy the Texas weather together playing in the pool, corn hole, football and other backyard activities. In the evenings we normally play a board game(Catan) or two as the smaller kids watch movies and play video games. There are very few if any weekends that go by that there is not extended family visiting our house.

We cherish time spent with all of them and enjoy being able to entertain and provide a safe atmosphere for everyone. Closest to us is Jennie's Brother's family, which consist of 2 toddlers and 2 twins who recently turned a year old. Jennie is the only girl with 4 brothers. She is routinely considered the "mom" among all of her siblings kids(8). Jacob has one older brother who currently resides in Seattle, Washington. All of our family is extremely excited and supportive in our decision to adopt.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home!

We currently reside in Bastrop, Texas. We both were born in central Texas and have set our roots here in Bastrop to grow and develop. The town is most closely located in proximity to Austin, Texas. It is a relatively small town with gatherings and events downtown. Our neighborhood is just outside the city in a subdivision that have many other families with children. The neighborhood is not very large so it is a close knit community and our family enjoys going on walks thorough the neighborhood in the evenings. The house is a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, ranch style home. Most activities and time spent is in the living, kitchen areas that lead out to the backyard and pool.  Our pool includes a small splash pad for the younger children to play in and an entertaining area for guests to lounge. We have a basketball court where we enjoy playing basketball with our children and family/friends. 

From Us to You

We are Jacob and Jennie. We are humbled by your selflessness and the sacrificial decision you are making on behalf of this child. We understand that you are reading several of these letters, trying to choose the best possible family for you and your child. We know this is not an easy decision and thank you for taking the time and consideration in going through our profile. We want to welcome you into our life and hope that you will want all of us to get to know one another.

We have only been married for a few years but knew as soon as we met that we would spend the rest of our lives together and we married shortly after. Since we met, we began discussing the idea of adoption and always knew that we would adopt. Our family currently consists of two amazing children from Jennie’s prior relationship, who are caring and can not wait to welcome a new addition. We have so much love and joy to share.

We live on an acre of land in a suburban to rural area about 2 miles outside the city where the kids go to school everyday. We both really enjoy children, so our house is open and kid friendly as nieces and nephews visit and stay over often. Both of us have vast extended families and we enjoy having them over, along with going on trips and vacations as much as possible. Family is very important to use and we like to include all of them in our life as much as possible.

During the week, we try to stay active and workout in our self-made gym, as dinner preparations start. Once dinner is cooked, we sit around the dining room table to eat as a family, while we discuss what occurred in our day at school and work. Depending on the time of year, we often have sporting events going on which the kids are involved in, but we also enjoy putting on a movie or relaxing in the hot tub to wind down for the day. We would cherish the opportunity to financially provide, give unconditional love and support to this child in whatever endeavors they might seek. We would hope to provide some support and ease to you in knowing that this child would have a loving, stable and structured upbringing.

We do hope with your blessing to keep you in contact and updated as much as possible. We are open and would like to exchange photos, letters, future visits, phone calls, and/or emails. We are very open minded and look forward to meeting with you to discuss your hopes for the communication in this relationship. We want you to feel comfortable, no matter what type of contact you choose.

We realize that the decision to place your child for adoption is one of the greatest challenges you may ever face. Please know that we will provide a fun, loving, nurturing family, should you select us to parent this child. We all share one goal - the happiness and health of this child. We hope to take this adoption journey with you, with the goal of establishing a life-long connection through the love of this blessing.
