Jason & Ginny
Adoption is something that our family has always felt very passionate about. We are so grateful that you are taking the time to read our profile. Choosing and allowing us to be your child's parents would mean the absolute world to our family. We hope that you will consider us and we look forward to this journey with you.
Adoption in Our Lives
Adoption has always been something we have been passionate about. We knew that even if we had a child together biologically that we still wanted to adopt. Jason has two boys from a previous marriage, one that is his biologically, and one that he adopted at the age of 3. Having adopted a child and having had a child biologically changes nothing for Jason. He loves them both as if they were his own.
Jason's mom is also adopted. She was adopted at a young age by two very loving parents who raised her up until adulthood. She had a very close relationship with them through life and couldn't be happier that they were chosen to parent her. Jason's mom does know who her biological parents are and has been blessed with the opportunity to get to know her birth mom through the years, and to this day they are very active in each other’s lives and have a close relationship. This is one of the many reasons why we have chosen to adopt.
As a family we really enjoy the outdoors. We love to bike the many trails we have here in Northwest Arkansas; taking our boat out on the lake and doing water sports such as water skiing, wake boarding, surfing, and tubing; watching movies; and spending lots of quality time with our friends and family.
Traveling is something else our family really enjoys and we try to take at least one vacation a year. We enjoy the beach, snow skiing, and sightseeing in the bigger cities. Both of us were able to travel a lot growing up with our families and we want that for our children as well.
Closer to home we attend local activities within our community and go to church on Sunday's. Jason's job requires him to work outside of the home but he is able to work from home on occasion. Ginny is a stay at home mom and takes the kids to school and to any extracurricular activities they are involved in. That is another thing we enjoy – cheering on our kids in whatever sport or activity they are pursuing. We never miss an event! We also enjoy being home a lot too and just spending time together with each other and our dogs.
Our Dogs, Felix, Duke & Sunny
Growing up we both always had pets and feel it is important for us as a couple that we offer the same for our children. We not only love pets but feel they are great for our emotional wellbeing. We currently have three dogs. Felix, a Jack Russell Terrier who is 10 years old; Duke, a Beagle who is nine years old; and Sunny, a Greyhound who is a 5 years old. All of our animals are rescues and we feel very passionate about giving them a second chance at a furever family.
Our dogs welcome us and every person that comes to our home with lots of kisses. They are always so excited to welcome us home! Play time with them is a blast and going for walks is one of their favorite things to do, something we can’t wait to include a little one in soon. Our family will always have a pet as we feel it is a great companion not only for us, but for our kids. We feel animals teach us patience and responsibility as well as unconditional love. We can't imagine life without them!
Our Extended Families
Family is very important to both of us and we are all very close! Ginny has one younger brother, Jason has two older sisters, two older brothers, and 6 nieces and nephews. Both sets of grandparents are retired and are very involved in church and spending time with their grandkids. Both of our families live within 20 miles of us so we see each other on a regular basis. Some things we do together with our families includes: going out on our boat, dinners (grill out when weather is nice), spending time at Ginny's parents pool, watching the boys play sports, and traveling together. We also enjoy a weekly Sunday lunch with Ginny's family following church.
Being so close to each other means we are together with our families for every major holiday. One cherished family tradition that we have done for years is at Christmas. A pickle is hidden on the Christmas tree and everyone gets to search for it. Whoever finds it gets a special gift. This is something we all, especially the kids, look forward to every year!
Both sets of grandparents are retired and they can't wait to welcome a new grand baby into the family and be a huge part of their life!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a wonderful community in Northwest Arkansas. We live in a two-story house with four bedrooms, we also have a big media room for the kids to play, watch movies, and play video games. We are close to schools, restaurants, walking trails, shopping, music venues, and so much more!
Our neighborhood sits around a beautiful golf course and several small lakes. We have golf, tennis courts, basketball courts, a neighborhood pool, a neighborhood clubhouse with a restaurant, and a playground. There are different events for families on most holidays including a huge firework show every year and a golf cart parade where everyone decorates their golf cart and drives through the neighborhood. Halloween is always a blast with everyone dressed up and trick or treating, and in the summer, we have pool parties for kids, ice cream socials and movie nights on the big screen outside. Our neighborhood is full of kids of all ages, families are always outside playing and walking their dogs. We couldn't ask to live in a better community!
From Us to You
Thank you so much for taking the time to view our profile. We know this must be a difficult decision for you to make. It is one of the most selfless things a person can do.
Becoming parents has always been something we have felt called to do. We knew from the very beginning that we wanted to expand our family. Whether we were able to have biological children together or not, we knew we wanted to adopt. We have struggled with infertility and instead of exploring other options we have chosen to start our adoption journey. It was a natural step as we already have one son who Jason adopted during a previous marriage. To be given the opportunity to adopt another child makes us so incredibly happy.
We have been together for four years, married two. Jason has two boys, 12-year-old Taylor and 16-year-old Jayce from a previous marriage. For Ginny, being a step mom has been the most rewarding experience. We all enjoy a lot of the same activities and love spending time together. We have so much fun and share such a special bond. The boys can't wait to have a younger sibling! We also have three loving dogs who we know will make excellent playmates for this child.
In our family, we make holidays some of the most memorable times in our lives. From holiday dinners, to stockings and gifts on Christmas morning, trick or treating, Easter egg hunts, and watching the fireworks show in our neighborhood, we love to celebrate together. Both our immediate and extended family members are beyond excited to help us welcome another child into our family and include in our fun traditions.
As we have started this journey to adoption, we have had many conversations about what we would want you to know. First and foremost please know that your child will be loved by so many and supported in every way. It is also very important to us that our child know who their birth parents are, where they came from, and the story that brought them to us. We believe that for our child to know his or her history will help create a strong sense of self and help them to be more confident throughout their life.
We plan to be completely open and honest with our child from the very beginning about their adoption. It is very important for our child to know the greatest sacrifice you made for them to have the best life possible. It is also very important to us that you feel at as much peace as possible with your decision and we will help with that in any way we can. We are open to sending photos, writing letters, and sending emails, as your child grows, to keep you updated on how they are doing. We want our child to know how much they are loved by all of their family, and most importantly that includes you.
We cannot thank you enough again for taking the time to take a look into our life and for considering us to be the parents of your child. We look forward to starting this journey with you and know that there is no greater act of kindness that could be given and for that we are truly blessed and forever thankful for you.
