David & Jill
We have a deep appreciation for the gift of adoption and we thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We have hoped and prayed for several years to expand our family through adoption again. Our hearts and home are full of love and we are overjoyed at the thought of welcoming another child into our family. We admire your strength and bravery and look forward to getting to know you.Thank you for considering us and we look forward to getting to know you.
Adoption in Our Lives
Adoption has had a tremendous impact on us. After realizing that we would not be able to have another biological child after we had William, we turned to adoption with hopeful hearts to grow our family. We were blessed beyond measure to be chosen by Aiden's birth parents to raise him. Words cannot describe the enormous blessing that Aiden and his birth parents have been to our family. The adoption process has also brought us an ongoing relationship with Aiden's birth mother, for which we are so very grateful. Our hearts have been opened in ways we didn't know were possible. Additionally, since Aiden is Hispanic and we are Caucasian, we are continuously learning about his heritage and ways we can incorporate the Hispanic culture into our lives. We take this very seriously, as we want to honor his birth parents and provide him with both cultural experiences and knowledge about his culture.
We couldn't imagine our lives without either of our boys and we are so excited to expand our family through adoption again. We have been forever changed by adoption for the love we have received and the love we feel so blessed we have been able to share with Aiden and his birth mother. We are looking forward to our next adoption journey with joyful anticipation.
Our Leisure Time
We love to travel and we take several family vacations each year. Exploring new places and cultures is not only educational, but has proven to be a great bonding experience that creates lifelong treasured memories for our family. We are grateful that William and Aiden love to travel as much as we do!
Living in Wisconsin means we love to cheer on the Green Bay Packers! Attending the home games is always a family affair. We stay active throughout the year, going downhill skiing and sledding in the winter, and hiking, boating, biking, golfing, playing tennis, and swimming in warmer weather. Most of our summer days are spent at the pool with cousins, uncles, aunts, and grandparents.
We dedicate our evenings and weekends to family time. It is important to us that we have dinner together every night. The boys usually have a sports game on the weekends that we attend and we also enjoy doing puzzles, playing board games, and having play dates with cousins and friends. We are so excited to include another child in all of our favorite activities!
We have two wonderful boys who are sweet, kind, and fun: William (6) and Aiden (3). William is naturally reserved, although he is coming out of his shell, which is so neat to watch. He enjoys playing sports, particularly soccer, golf, and football. He also enjoys downhill skiing and sledding in the winter. William also enjoys puzzles, chess, and video games. He is an amazing big brother; very loving and protective of Aiden, and he is excited to welcome a new baby to our family.
Aiden is very energetic, playful, and social. He makes friends wherever he goes! Aiden loves to be active and is currently enjoying gymnastics classes and preschool, where he has made a lot of friends. Aiden also enjoys swimming, playing in the snow, tubing on the lake, arts and crafts, music, and watching Disney movies and Paw Patrol. He brings a lot of fun and laughter to our family.
Our Extended Families
We are very close to our families and spending time with them is something we cherish. Our families are very involved in our lives and they provide a network of support for us. Jill's parents, as well as her brother and his family, live close by and we get together all the time. The kids absolutely adore their cousins, who are similar in age, and have the best time together. They take swimming, golf, and tennis lessons together in the summer and we often get together for pizza and play dates on the weekends. Every year we take a vacation with 16 members of Jill's extended family. It is always such a good time and the kids (and adults) have made so many wonderful memories together with their cousins, grandparents, uncles and aunts on these vacations.
David's family lives about an hour away and the boys love having sleepovers at Grandma Patti's house where they catch frogs, go hiking and mini golfing, and stay up late to catch fireflies. They play football and video games with their Uncle Mark and have dance parties and play soccer with their Aunt Christine. We often host David's family at our house for weekends at a time. We go hiking, fly kites, and play yard games and board games together. We also look forward to our annual trips to Chicago to visit Aunt Christine. We love the extra time together and the boys get to enjoy all the big city has to offer: nature museums, children's museums, fun restaurants, and room service!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small city in Wisconsin that is very family friendly. It provides a lot of activities and events to provide opportunities for families to spend time together and make memories. Our city is filled with 12 playgrounds, numerous parks, an outdoor pool, a splash pad, various sport fields and facilities, sledding hills, walking trails, and fishing facilities. It also hosts seasonal family festivals, including a Halloween festival where there is a costume contest and trick-or-treating throughout the town; a Christmas festival with live reindeer, Santa Claus, and a sleigh ride; and a Fourth of July festival with a children's parade, face painting, a petting zoo, and water ski show. There is a strong sense of community here and it is a wonderful place to raise children.
Our neighborhood is a very safe, quiet subdivision with a mix of older couples and young families. We have a two-story house with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. It is open concept, with the kitchen open to the living room. The living room and kitchen are the main areas where we spend time together and make memories. We also have a formal dining room that doubles as a craft and homework room. In the basement, we have a large play room where the boys can burn off some energy by making obstacle courses, playing football, and playing tag. We have created a loving home environment where we can all relax and enjoy each other.
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to read about our family. We understand that you may be facing difficult decisions and we want you to know that we admire your bravery and courage. We promise to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing home for your child. We will always speak of you with respect, love, and gratitude and we would be honored to have an ongoing relationship with you.
We met while Jill was attending law school. David was best friends with one of her classmates, and the rest is history. We have been together for fourteen years and married for eight years. We love the family-oriented city we live in and plan to stay here and raise our children here. We have two sons, William (6) and Aiden (3). They are the light of our lives and bring us immeasurable happiness and joy every day.
After many failed infertility treatments, we found out that it would be unlikely for us to conceive another child after William was born. While this was a very difficult time for us, we were able to turn our heartache into hope and we embraced the opportunity to grow our family through adoption. We were overjoyed to be chosen by Aiden's birth parents and we welcomed Aiden into our family with the same amount of overwhelming love with have for William. We are eternally grateful to Aiden's birth parents for choosing us to be his parents and we highly respect them. We promise to convey this same honor, love, and respect for you in our home, should you continue on your adoption journey and choose us.
We are all anxiously awaiting the opportunity to welcome another child into our family through adoption. We strongly believe in the benefits of having siblings and the lifelong relationship that our children will have with each other. We promise to provide a supportive, stable, and loving home environment. We will provide educational and culturally enriching opportunities for them and encourage them to pursue their dreams and passions. We have traveled with our children since they were babies and we will continue to do so as they grow up. We already have college funds established for our children, and we will support them in whatever path they choose to follow to achieve a happy and fulfilling life.
We promise we will send letters and pictures to you throughout the years and to set up a visit when the time is right. We hope to have a relationship with you where we can both feel comfortable with having informal communication via text and email as well so that we can share with you your child's joyful moments and milestones over the years. We want you to know that you will be loved by us.
After Aiden was born, we decided that Jill would quit her job as a lawyer and stay home with the boys. Jill has always dreamt of being a stay-at-home mom, and we are fortunate that she is able to do that. She is grateful she can focus all of her attention on the children and spend time with them creating memories and having fun. Likewise, we are blessed that David has a flexible work schedule, which allows him to partake in some weekday activities with the children.
Adoption has been an enormous blessing in our lives. We are so excited to bring another child into our loving home and we are so grateful that you are considering our family. Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us and to share our lives with you.
