Our Professional Lives

We Are Excited to Grow Our Family!

Both of our careers have centered around education, and we are committed to providing our future child with the best education possible. Ali has been an elementary school teacher for nearly ten years and teaches many students with special needs. It is her passion, and she loves her job. Ali works in one of the highest rated schools in our area, and looks forward to bringing our future child to school with her. Her school even has an early childhood program reserved for employees with an engaging, well-rounded curriculum in a nurturing environment. She knows she will love having our future child close to her during the school day. Ali is also excited to spend summers and holidays off with a child.

Jacob began his career as a math teacher and basketball coach. He loves sports, and can't wait to teach our future child how to dribble a basketball! Although he loved his job, Jacob ultimately made the decision to go back to school and earn a degree in accounting. He now works for a bank in the internal audit department, and he loves his job. Jacob works from home and has a flexible schedule making it an ideal job for fatherhood.

Our Leisure Time

Go Vikings!

During our leisure time, we love to spend time with our family and friends. We love trying new restaurants, seeing movies, and hanging out in our community pool. Many of our friends have young children, and we love spending time with them. We truly feel that our support system is unlike any other, and we cherish our time with the people we love.

Another thing we love to do is cheer on our favorite teams. Jacob is a sports fanatic, so we love going to professional and collegiate games. We really look forward to cheering on our Texas teams with our future child, just as we did when we were children. It will be a tradition that we are eager to continue.

We also love to travel. We have traveled to several countries and states together. We plan to share our love of traveling with our future child and show him or her the world. We want to immerse our future child in different cultures and create lasting memories on yearly vacations to places all over the world.

Our Promise to You

We promise that we will go on this journey with you with open and grateful hearts. We look forward to building a loving and supportive relationship with you, one that your child will witness firsthand. We promise to respect and care for you during your pregnancy and beyond. Your child will grow up knowing his/her mother committed the most selfless act of love a mother can make. We are committed to providing this child every opportunity possible throughout their life- a home overflowing with love, a quality education, and memories and experiences that they will cherish forever. As Ali's mother has always said, "you can never love your child too much", and we will live the rest of our lives loving this child unconditionally. We know this is not an easy decision, but we are here for you and this child every step of the way.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home is Perfect for Growing Our Family

We purchased our first home a few years ago and have already filled it with many memories. Our four-bedroom home has an open floor plan that is perfect for family time and celebrations. We have hosted many family gatherings here, including Thanksgiving and our annual crawfish boils. We share our home with our two dogs Bishop and Nashville, who love children. Whether we are having a quiet family dinner at our dining table or hosting a party for our friends and family, our home is filled with tons of love to share.

On of Our Community Playgrounds

One of our favorite things about our home is our neighborhood. We live in a close-knit community that is perfect for raising a child! We love to see our neighborhood children ride their bikes and play in the front yards. We are within walking distance from our huge community park, playground, two pools, splash pad, and one of the highest rated elementary schools in our city. Every year, our community celebrates the Fourth of July and New Year's Eve with incredible firework shows. We are close to some awesome amusement parks, family friendly restaurants, and all the attractions of a big city. However, our neighborhood is far enough out of the city to enjoy a quiet, family-centered atmosphere. We truly have the best of both worlds, and we are excited for our future child to love it as much as we do.

Our Extended Families

With Ali's Parents

Family is the most important thing in our lives. We are committed to raising our future child surrounded by the most loving and supportive family. Our families have shown us the best example of what it means to love with all of your heart, and we can't wait to share that unconditional love with our future child.

Jacob & Our Nephews

Ali's parents live less than ten minutes away from our home, and cannot wait to meet their first grandchild. Ali was raised in a close-knit family with her loving parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We see her parents several times a week and enjoy our family dinners at their home. We love their huge backyard, because it has plenty of room for children to play. We share most holidays with them, and they are known for their over-the-top celebrations. Her parents are excited to take their future grandchild to the Frio River and to museums near and far, where Ali made some of her most cherished memories.

Jacob's parents share their time between their home in our town and their home on the Texas coast. We love visiting them, and we cherish our family dinners on the water. Jacob's parents are eager to teach their future grandchild how to fish and show them the best fishing spots around. Jacob's brothers also live in Texas, and we have three young nephews. They are so excited to meet their future cousin!

From Us to You

First of all, we are in awe of your strength and courage. This can't be an easy decision, but we are grateful that you have taken the time to view our profile and get to know us. We are very excited for the opportunity to share this journey with you, and we are here to support you every step of the way. Building our family through adoption is something we have wanted for years. We would be forever grateful to be entrusted with raising your child. That begins by building a loving relationship with you. You will be such an important part of our future family, and we cannot wait to share many joyful moments with you!

We have been married for four wonderful years. We live a life full of laughter and joy. We support each other through everything, no matter what. We live by wise advice from Jacob's dad. He says that when you become married, you become a team; a team that takes no timeouts and doesn't keep score. This has been the guiding philosophy of our marriage, and we are confident that it will guide us through raising a child as well. We both feel that we were born to be parents, and we will love this child unconditionally for our entire lives.

We have many hopes and dreams for this child. We will provide them with a fantastic education and opportunities to travel the world on yearly family vacations. We will encourage this child to pursue their passions fiercely, and we will make memories together that will last a lifetime. This child will be surrounded by an outpouring of love and support from us, our families, and our community of wonderful friends. They will grow up in a safe and loving environment and will truly be the center of our world.

Our unending gratitude for you will be evident through our words and actions. This child will know your decision was made out of the purest love. We will keep an open and honest dialogue about how brave their Birth Mother is and how honored we are to have been chosen to be their parents. Whether we are talking on the phone, texting, emailing, writing letters, or FaceTiming, we are looking forward to building a warm and supportive relationship between you, us, and this precious child. We will send pictures and videos of their day-to-day life as well as their important milestones. Adoption is such a beautiful thing, and we would love nothing more than to go on this journey alongside you.

If you decide to create an adoption plan, we want you to know that we will respect your wishes and do whatever it takes to support you and this child during this time. We will follow your lead as you determine the level of openness you wish to share with us. If you are comfortable, we would love to meet you in person or over FaceTime so you can learn more about our hearts and the overflowing love we are ready to share with this child.

Our favorite saying about the beauty of adoption is "Love builds a family." We believe this wholeheartedly. We look forward to building a family that centers around immense and unending love. We look forward to knowing, respecting, and loving you too.

With All Our Love and Gratitude,

Jacob & Ali
