Jason & Stephanie
We are so thankful you are taking the time to look at our profile. The choice is yours and we understand this may be a decision that comes with many emotions. We are praying throughout this process for God to guide you as we have faith he will bring us the right child as we believe it is all in his divine plan. We can't wait to complete our family.
Education We will Provide
We are truly blessed to live in an area that has one of the best school districts in the state and also in very close proximity lie some of the best private schools in the Southeast. The decision to place our child in a public or private institution will heavily weigh on a certain number of factors: diversity of the children, diversity of teachers, athletic programs, and developmental programs.
Education does not stop in the classroom. We feel that life lessons are just as important as math problems. At home we will guide with a gentle hand. We want our child NOT to be afraid of failure. We plan to instill this at a very young age. Should they fall we will help them to pick themselves back up. If they fail at a problem or assignment, we will lend a helping hand. We don't want our child to ever get discouraged, but we also want them to keep a sensible understanding of reality. This concept along with exposing them to outdoor activities and team sports will teach them respect, diligence, work ethic and social skills as well as independence and courage. We will also teach them to respect the environment and all animals and to love the Lord.

Our Dogs, Samson & Solomon
Until now Samson and Solomon have been our kids. Samson is almost 9 and came as a package deal when Jason met Stephanie. He is the protector of the home. Samson is always on alert for any neighbors walking by or movement in the yard, or the occasional fed ex delivery, or the lawn guy. His bark is feirce but his giant is gentle. He has been exposed to many children throughout the years via friends and family and loves to fetch and play. When hes off duty hes most likely found sunbathing on the back patio or snoozing on his blanket on the couch. His nicknames are: SAMP, SHMAMPS,SAMSONITE, SAMMY AND SAMTERS LOL!
Solomon on the otherhand is the current baby, hes 4. We got Solomon together shortly before purchasing our home. Inititally Samson wanted nothing to do with him but soon enough they became best buds. Ride or Die these two. Solomon was born to be a therapy dog. From the day we brought him home he has been the most gentle quiet dog. He leans into you and often places his head right up under your arm when your trying to do something as he just wants love and affection. We plan to get him certified to take into the hospital to visit the children in the cancer center. His nicknames are: STINK, STINKY, CLOCKWORK, SMELL, SMELLY, and OCHO (he lost two of his back toes to cancer but 100% Cancer FREE now!)
Our Extended Families
Jason was raised in NYC with his brother. Jason’s mother recently retired and lives two miles down the road. She is super excited to become a grandmother again and her and Stephanie are very close. Jason’s father resides in NYC where he works part time for an airline. Jason’s brother is married and lives about an hour away with his wife and their biological son & two children they recently adopted.
Stephanie was raised with one younger sister who lives close by with her boyfriend. Stephanie's father lives by himself and is semi-retired and still practicing dentistry. Her mother lives about 15 minutes away close to one of the largest parks in the city where we frequently take our dogs for walks. Her mother has remarried recently and lives in a nice quiet neighborhood. Both of Stephanie’s parents are so excited to become grandparents as this child will be their first grandchild.
We both are extremely close with our families and both families spend quite a bit of time together either cooking out, for holidays, or to grab dinner for the occasional celebration. They can't wait to help us welcome our first child!
Our House and Neighborhood
We reside in North Carolina and believe we will always live here in this house as it has truly become our dream home. Short story here... Stephanie used to babysit in this home in college and had always told her friend that if she was ever in the position in the future to be able to buy this house it would be her dream home. Well the stars aligned, the same day we were going to go under contract on another home this one came on the market by owner.
It is so private and peaceful with deer and nature everywhere. It sits on almost two acres fenced in. We have approximately 20 deer every morning and or evening in our front yard. We watch the birds fly in the 100-foot trees that surround our home and don't see or hear any traffic, yet just outside the sleepy hollow entrance is the main road taking you into the city. There are plenty of families in this private little neighborhood. There are neighborhood gatherings annually. We have our own private pool and several of our close friends with their children just around the corner. The home has 4 bedrooms, playroom/office and 3.5 baths. It truly is our perfect sanctuary.
From Us to You
We are humbled you have taken the time to learn a little more about us in your journey to select suitable parents for your little one. Know you are incredibly courageous and selfless. We are praying for you in your decision and will be excited if you should choose to pick us as we will know our prayers were answered and it was God’s plan all along.
We met back in 2014 through mutual friends during football season, and it has been nothing but love ever since. To this day we truly believe we met our soulmate. We both have the same work ethic and have very similar interest. We love sports and often go to football games or basketball games for fun. We both love cars and love to shop.
We will always be world travelers and if we are so blessed to be selected to be the parents of your baby, rest assured they will become a world traveler too! We are very enthusiastic about life and always try and maintain a positive attitude. We both have chosen to put Christ at the center of our marriage and we pray together daily. We have such a strong network of spiritual friends we are so blessed we have such a mature group of men and women to surround ourselves with. Family is everything to us and we are grateful to have ours blend together to become one.
For our future child, we can’t wait to meet you, hold you, and love you. We can't wait to show you the world, teach you, and lead you. We look forward to the day where you can meet all your aunts, uncles and grandparents...and Solomon and Samson can’t wait to play with you and snuggle with you and protect you too! We will introduce you to loving the Lord, and try to instill the greatest values into your character. We want you to always be proud of your story, be a leader to your peers, always be honest no matter the cost, and always be true to your heart. There will never be a day where you won’t be able to depend on us should you need us, and we can’t wait to show you all the things in life, and experience those with you as well as have you teach us what it’s like to become parents.
As the years pass, we are more than happy to exchange pictures and letters via American Adoptions so that you may always know your child is happy and thriving in our home. We will learn from you if you should pick us what you would like us to share with your child as your unique reason for selecting us as the parents to raise him/her. We will always make sure your child knows how much you love them and how hard the decision was for you and we will always reflect you in a positive light to them.
Thank you again for considering us as potential parents for your child. We have been looking forward to expanding our family for quite some time now and will provide all the love, devotion and support that any child or parent could ask for. We know you have a very difficult decision ahead of you. Please know that we are praying for God to guide you toward selecting the right family for your child’s future.
