Jeff & Gina
We believe that everything happens for a reason, and we are where we're supposed to be. Several of our friends and family members are adopted, which helps us further understand what a special gift adoption is. We hope our profile conveys our commitment, dedication, and the unconditional love we have to share. We are overjoyed to be on our path to adoption. We offer you our gratitude and prayers on this incredibly courageous journey.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
The two of us have felt a special connection since the moment we met. We discovered that we have a lot in common and share similar personal values, dreams and directions in life. We are both outgoing and easy to talk to, so we laugh a lot and always have fun together. Gi found that Jeff was very loving, sweet, smart, silly, funny, kind, hard-working, charming, passionate, creative and energetic. He will make sure everyone is comfortable, smiling, and having a good time. And Jeff got to know Gina as especially kind, caring, lively, strong-willed, passionate, loving, fun and creative. She always has the energy and compassion to share her time and infectious smile with anyone. We have similar temperaments that naturally tend to balance each other out well. We both work hard to maintain good communication within our relationship, which is something we consider very important in keeping our relationships healthy and strong. We are both conscientious, open-minded, loving people and know that we will make amazing parents.
Our Leisure Time
We are both musicians who started playing drums when we were ten years old, and have been playing and learning other instruments ever since. Jeff has donated to a local children's music academy and has hosted a number music events in the community. Gina was a professional touring musician who also taught several children's music programs. We love playing music together and cannot wait to share our passion and creativity with a child.
We love art, museums, concerts, and movies. We love reading and listening to audiobooks together. We also love and appreciate our quiet time together at home cooking, baking, celebrating old traditions and creating new ones (like homemade popcorn for our cozy movie nights).
Individually, Gina loves yoga, epsom baths, massage, music and dance. Jeff loves to cook, bake, make music and create digital art.
We believe creative hobbies, with discipline and time management, are healthy outlets for nurturing individual growth and self-discovery.
Our Family Traditions
Family is an incredibly important part of our lives. We get together as often as possible. We have pool parties, movie and game nights, we cook and share recipes, and we help with each other's gardening and home projects. We love camping and hiking together. Our brother loves to get his pizza oven, BBQ and fire pit going while everyone enjoys his backyard and pool. We all have dogs that play well and have fun together and with the kids. We are all caring, passionate people that love talking to each other as often as we can.
Culture is also an important part of our family. Gina's parents started a cultural heritage club that hosts monthly dinners where dozens of families share meals, stories, recipes and laughs. Jeff welcomes and loves the Italian traditions of Gina's family almost as much as they love to share them with him.
Christmas is our favorite time to reconnect with traditions, like our annual cookie swap, gingerbread decorating night, viewing Christmas lights, and ice skating.
We are grateful to grow our family on a strong foundation of traditions, and the love and support of our family and of each other. We are so excited to continue old traditions and begin new traditions with a child.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a fast-growing suburban city, between Los Angeles and San Diego in Southern California. We cherish our home and our location for all of the advantages it provides us with. We live the best of both worlds by being so close to the excitement of these iconic cities, while living in a medium-sized town with a diverse, supportive, friendly community, that has great schools, numerous parks, and endless sunshine. We love exploring the beaches, mountains, and deserts that are all within an hour's drive of us.
Our cozy two-bedroom, two-bath home has plenty of large open space and lots of windows to enjoy the Southern California sun. The neighborhood kids are always out playing in our little streets and in our big grassy areas shaded by tall, beautiful trees.
The local school districts are well ranked, and have lots of options (in district, at-home, and charter) and activities for students of all ages and circumstances.We are so grateful for our safe, friendly neighborhood and can't wait to share our beautiful home and wonderful community with a child.
Our Extended Families
We are both from large, close families. Jeff's family lives within an hour of our home, while most of Gina's family lives in the same town. We get together as often as possible to celebrate holidays, birthdays, and any other reason we can think of.
Gina's mother and stepfather are Italian immigrants, rooted in their culture and traditions. Christmas Eve is the "Feast of the Seven Fishes," and the white elephant gift exchange. Christmas day is at Nonna's house.
Our family visits usually stay local, but sometimes lead us to explore Southern California with day trips, camping and overnight vacations.
We also love to slow down, relax and enjoy our time together at home. We love cooking and baking together, trying and sharing new recipes. We harvest fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs from our sister's farm. The kids ride their bikes and scooters, and play games and sports together.
We feel blessed to have our family live so close and have so much love and support to give. Our extended families are very supportive of our dream to adopt and excited to be a part of growing our family.
From Us to You
We write this letter with the utmost respect and admiration for your courage and strength. We cannot begin to understand what you are going through. If you decide to place your child with us, you will always play an important part in our family's life. This child will grow up knowing the love and respect we have for you, as we commit to honor you through our words and actions. We hope to have an open relationship with you through letters, emails, photos and phone calls (depending on your preference). We are also open to discussing making arrangements for visits, when the time is right. The roles that each of us play in this child's life are important, and will be honored.
Your child will be the number one priority in our life. We will protect and guide them, and do everything we can to support and encourage them on their journey. Your child will grow up in an emotionally safe, comfortable and positive environment, where we will honor their story, nurture their growth and development, encourage them to learn who they are, and to trust and believe in themselves. We are so thankful that our families are supportive of our adoption plans and are excited to shower another grandchild, niece or nephew, and cousin with love. The two of us promise that we will love this child unconditionally and provide him or her with every opportunity possible to become the best version of themselves.
We are so happy to be on this path to expand our family through adoption with faith, hope and fate on our side. After all we have been through in our four years together (married three), our bond has only strengthened, and our dream to become parents further affirmed. We have a unified vision of what we want out of our lives, and becoming parents would complete our story. Our relationship is one built on trust, communication, and a shared set of values. We truly are best friends and are very proud of the relationship and life we have created together. Life is our adventure and we feel so much gratitude to have each other. Adoption has always felt like the right choice for us and we are thrilled to embark on this next chapter of our lives.
We hope our profile properly conveys to you the love we have for each other and the people around us, and gives you an idea of what life would be like for your child in our family. We hope that learning more about us will give you peace of mind as you consider adoption. We are humbled and aspire to show you our deepest respect and appreciation in considering us as parents for your child. Whether your future includes us or not, we hope that you find peace in this process, and we trust that you will make the right decision for yourself and your child. We will be thrilled when the right decision for someone is us. Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for considering us.
Jeff & Gina
