Jeff & Lynn
Hello there! We are very excited to start this adoption journey for a second time. We have been married three years and have a son who we have adopted a few years ago. We have so much love and joy in our hearts and we can't wait to grow our little family! Thank you for taking the time to consider us to be the potential parents of your child.
Adoption in Our Lives
We adopted our son, Jackson, as an infant and it has been the most amazing journey of our lives together. Being unable to have a child naturally, having the ability to adopt has been integral to being able to have the family that we always dreamed of. Being there with Jackson from the start and watching him learn, grow and develop has brought out the absolute best in each of us and made our hearts fuller than we thought possible. The journey of adoption is beautiful and we are excited that this is something Jackson will be able to share with his future sibling.
Adoption runs in both of our families as well. Lynn's sister adopted our niece through the foster system and we are blessed to have her in our lives and that Jackson will be able to share the journey of adoption with his cousin. Jeff's grandfather was adopted as an infant as well and has shared his experience of adoption from the adoptee's view with us very openly and because of his experience Jackson has a unique bond with his great-grandfather.
Jeff's passion is cars and anything to do with cars. He loves to work on his '73 Plymouth Duster and taking it for a cruise or to a car show. A perfect day for him is spent in the garage, driving around or watching the action at a race track. Jeff enjoys all forms of motorsports, especially NASCAR and enjoys watching all the races possible. He grew up playing with Hot Wheels cars and replicating real race tracks out of popsicle sticks on the living room floor. Jeff is very excited to share his passion for cars with his future children.
Lynn's passion is cooking and baking. This is a fairly new passion which started after she received a stand mixer as a gift from their wedding. She loves to make many baked goods, and use Jeff as her guinea pig for recipe tasting (a job Jeff never turns down). Lynn is the designated cake maker for birthdays and she loves to come up with different cake flavors and designs based on each family member's personality.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Jeff - The thing I admire most about Lynn is her desire to serve others and her ability to support and encourage others to achieve their dreams. She is always the one who steps up and encourages myself, our son, and our extended family and friends when we are faced with challenges and gives us that little nudge that it takes to get through the rough spots. She is always available to talk and provides a second point of view in any situation. I have seen through her time with our son that these qualities make her a wonderful parent and partner in my life. There is no one I would rather go through life with and I love seeing her share her love with our family.
Lynn - What I admire most about Jeff is how selfless he is. He would do anything for anyone at any time. He never thinks of himself first and always puts his family's needs above his own. When there's something that needs to be done, he will just do it without even having to be asked. He loves deeply, and his happiness comes when other people are happy. I am so blessed to have him as a husband, and I know he will make an amazing father. I can't wait to see him grow as a parent and I know our children will be blessed by him.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in Southern California. We live in a large home in a new neighborhood with the intention of growing our family. Our favorite room in the house is the game room. It is a great place to hang out together and spend time as a family. We also love our backyard because there is enough room to run around with our son and watch him chase our dogs.
We feel blessed to live in such an amazing part of the country; not only because of the amazing weather all year around, but also because we are so close to many attractions and areas of interest. If you drive an hour in any direction from our house you can either be at the beach, in the mountains, or in the desert. We are also less than an hour away from Disneyland, Universal Studios and the Los Angeles Zoo.
We love to be out and about, and our neighborhood is perfect for children. We are close to several parks and one big city park. Our city park is fairly new and has walking trails, hockey rink, swimming pools, community center and several playgrounds.
Our Extended Families
Our families are very similar. We both have parents who have been married for over 35 years, and we also have one sister each. We are blessed to both have supportive and loving families. Lynn's family has been touched by adoption in many ways. Her sister adopted a child through foster care, and she has just been a complete joy to be around. Lynn also has two cousins who have adopted children into their home. Jeff's paternal grandfather was adopted as well. We are happy to have family who are very comfortable with adoption, and we know this child will grow up with cousins who have a similar story to theirs.
Our family loves to travel. We make it a point every year to go on a family vacation together. Each member takes a turn choosing where the next vacation will be. This a fairly new tradition, but so far we have been to Colorado, Hawaii, Disney World and are currently planning a trip to Ireland and the UK. Going to new places and experiencing new cultures is nice, but our favorite part of each trip is the dedicated time being spent together.
From Us to You
Hi! We are Lynn and Jeff, and we are so thankful that you are taking the time to learn a little more about us. We have been married for five years and been together for a total of eight years. We have a son that is almost two years old that we adopted. He is the light of our lives, and we thank God every day that he is a part of our family.
We met online, and the one singular item on Lynn's profile that attracted Jeff to hers was that she liked fast cars and owned a Mustang. Even though such a small detail of similar interest brought us together, we were inseparable from that day forward. Together we have strengthened our bond through a shared love of country music, travel, and experiencing new adventures together. It is also a coincidence that we both attended the same university at the same time, and even though we never met in person at that time, we were still destined to be together.
We are blessed to be surrounded by family who are so excited to meet your child and bring them into the family as one of their own. Both of our parents have been married for over 35 years and we look up to them when it comes to marriage and raising a family. Being together and spending time together as a family is one of our top priorities. We lean on each other when times are rough, and we celebrate with each other when times are good. We know that your child will feel the love and support that we have felt for so many years.
We have built a wonderful life together, and we are now at the time in our lives where we wish to expand our family! And if we are blessed to do so, that is where you come in! While it may never be possible to have children of our own, we are so excited about the possibility and opportunity of adoption again. We can never fully know what you are going through at this time, sifting through dozens of profiles to select a family for your child. What we can tell you is that we will be here for you before the baby is born and after the baby is born. We hope to do be as involved during the pregnancy as you are comfortable with, and we will make sure that you are kept up to date with the progress of your baby through pictures, emails, phone calls or whatever you are comfortable with. We know that our relationship with you will not end at the hospital, and we are excited to share with our baby their adoption story and how much their birth mother loves them and cherishes them.
We promise to love your child unconditionally, and provide the best possible life we can give.
With Love and Gratefulness,
Jeff & Lynn
