Nicole & Jenna
We believe that to have this opportunity to adopt is the greatest gift of our lives. We are so incredibly thankful. Choosing us to be the parents of your child is what we are truly hoping for. Our promise to you is that we will cherish and love your child using everything we have to give and more. Thank you so much for considering us as parents and we are so excited for this journey.
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Hands down our favorite vacation spot is our condo in West Palm Beach, Florida. It's a three-bedroom vacation home right on the beach overlooking the ocean. It's newly renovated and very cozy. When we travel there we love hanging out at the condo pool (which we always have to ourselves) and lounging on the beach. The condo unit is a perfect place for kids and there are many great things to experience there. While we're there, we always look forward to meeting up with Jenna's sister, her husband and their kids. We're only two hours from Disney World and Universal Studios, a trip we will definitely make often with our children. We have a Jeep Wrangler there and we love putting the top down and cruising along the shoreline. While we love the sun and the sand, we also love hiking in the Colorado mountains and skiing on the snowy hilltops.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Nicole About Jenna: Jenna is the most loving and caring woman I have ever known, and her emotional intelligence is the brightest than anyone I've ever met. When we first began dating, Jenna's energy could literally subside some of my worst headaches. She introduced me to a world I had never known. She is gentle, compassionate and can connect with any person on a deeper level than most. I believe her calming demeanor will bring stability to our children.
Jenna About Nicole: Nicole is the hardest working person, the best problem solver, and boy does she love her spreadsheets. I truly believe we complement each other so well as she has specific strengths that add to our relationship. She approaches everything in life with love, logic and an open mind. She has the biggest heart I've ever known. The steadiness of our love and what we've found as a couple is what has made us so confident in one another. We both respect the integrity of our bond and truly enjoy each other's company.
Our dog, Brody became a part of our lives when Nicole got him right after she moved out on her own at age 20. He is so important to us because he has been there through all major milestones. We love taking him to Detroit and spending time at our favorite dog park and then getting a slice of pizza next door. Nicole has spent a lot of time with him when he was younger in training classes. He is very loving, intelligent and well-behaved. He is also a professional with the frisbee.
Our cats, Leo and Oliver, are important because they bring so much loving and cuddly energy into our home. Each of them love to snuggle with us and bring the best emotional support. They are both so playful and happy. All of our animals consistently bring so much happiness into our life. We also know how much our pets keep us grounded and are constant beings of love that fill our home with presence and peace.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a very well-rounded, friendly and family-oriented neighborhood with a lot of young families who have children. About every ten minutes from our front porch you will see multiple families walking by with young ones. There is a spirit of community where we live and you can feel it specifically in our city.
Our home has three bedrooms with a finished basement and open floor plan. We take a lot of pride in our home because we have spent the last few years putting love and effort into creating a cozy, comfortable and safe environment. Our favorite room is our living room/dining area, there is an openness to it and Jenna loves sitting at the kitchen island while Nicole cooks dinner. We play music, laugh and simply enjoy each other's company.
Nearby, there is a huge park with a brand new play structure and plenty of space to run around and play. It's a five minute walk from our house. Our downtown area is extremely easy to walk and has many community events in the summer.
We absolutely love decorating our house for every holiday and our favorites are Christmas lights and spooky Halloween decor. Our backyard is important to us, our outdoor space is just as welcoming as our indoor space. We maintain the landscaping always making sure its fresh and clean and we love to relax on our back patio.
Our Extended Families
We love being with the whole family every Sunday for Sunday Family Dinner, we believe this is a perfect time to connect and strengthen our relationship with our loved ones. We get together at Tammy's (Jenna's Mom) house for every Holiday and have what we call "Family Olympics" which has multi-rounds of games with points and we partner up to win fun prizes. The house if filled with lots of laughter. In the summer at Tammy's we also like to swim in her pool and hang out by the fire and chat with the whole family. All of our family members (outside of Jenna's sister in Arkansas) live within 20-30 minutes of our house, which makes our gatherings more frequent and accessible.
We love going to our family condo in West Palm Beach, Florida in the summer. We typically go with the whole family and it's right on the beach. For holidays we love cooking up our favorite recipes especially for Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve dinner. Our family is unique because of how sincerely close everyone is. Each one of us has distinctive relationships with each other and spend a lot of time together. In that same spirit our family is very supportive of us adopting, everyone is super excited to potentially incorporate new culture and traditions into our lives. We know this child will be loved and welcomed by everyone in our family.
From Us to You
Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. As you begin to absorb our letter we hope this finds you in a place of peace and assurance. As we write this, our hearts are full of love and gratitude for this experience and this opportunity. We know what an honor it is.
We won't be quick to assume what it is you're feeling, what you've been through, or your story. We won't ever be able to fully comprehend what it takes to go through this process. However, in our hearts, we'd like to share what we DO know. We know we have an enormous amount of LOVE and respect for you. We know you are loving human being. Anyone who can nurture life inside of her and move through this process - that takes a loving heart.
We know you are selfless. It's a woman of incredible strength who truly gives without anything in return. Although, we will cherish you every step of the way. We know you are kind and we know you are a woman we admire so much.
We have been together four amazing years, however it feels more like a lifetime. We both have worked hard at creating a firm foundation from which our love can build upon. Our relationship runs deep and the unconditional love, loyalty and commitment is unwavering.
We have always know that we will adopt our children since we met. Since we were both young, we have had a deep desire to adopt. This was something both of us connected on right away and was a key piece to us knowing that we were meant to be from the beginning of our relationship. Having the opportunity to raise a family is so important to us. We also knew that education was a very important topic when discussing raising a child. Education can mean so many different things and we both promise to give this child all the opportunity to be the best versions of themselves that they can possibly be, whatever this may look like. We will do this by exploring various forms of education and giving them a free space of unconditional love to express themselves in any way they need.
This life will be full of fun and play. We have so many plans for family vacations with aunts, uncles, and of course many cousins. With such a tight knit family, this child will be surrounded with so much love and support. We want to put so much emphasis on unconditional love and we vow to create a space for this child to express themselves freely.
We want you up front and center throughout this journey. We will only speak of respect and admiration for YOU. Thank you for all you are and everything else that is to come. We happily welcome yearly in-person visits and monthly photos with you and the family.
Lastly, we know that we will give this child a beautiful life, but YOU have given life! It's the most brave and beautiful thing and we are so blessed to witness and experience it.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Nicole & Jenna
