Lyle & Jen
We hope to become parents through adoption after struggling with infertility. We want to thank you for taking the time to check out our profile. We have so much love to share with a child. It would mean the world to us to become first time parents through adoption. We hope you will consider us and we look forward to the journey ahead.
We love to travel and our goal is to visit all 50 states in the U.S. and visit every baseball stadium. We've traveled together to South Carolina, Delaware, Colorado, California, Ohio, Florida, Virginia, Grand Turk, and the Bahamas. We took a trip to Colorado to visit Lyle's friend in Boulder. We saw the Garden of the Gods, Estes Park, mountains, and many other landmarks. After Colorado we went to San Diego to visit Jen's friend. We went to the San Diego Zoo and Universal Studios. That was one of our favorite trips. In our journey to visit every ballpark stadium, we went to Cleveland and saw the giant postage stamp and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The stadiums we have visited are Baltimore, Washington D.C., Cleveland, San Diego, Denver, Philadelphia, New York, Miami and Boston. We plan to continue visiting stadiums and states making new memories with our child.
Our Leisure Time
In our leisure time, we love to watch and play sports. We love to watch baseball and football and play golf together. Lyle, his dad and brother coach baseball at the local high school and Jen and Lyle's mom often attend games. Lyle also plays baseball, softball and flag football in his spare time.
We also love to watch TV and movies, play yard games and board games. Some of our favorite shows include The Masked Singer, Criminal Minds, Game of Thrones and One Tree Hill. Our favorite games are Ticket to Ride, Yahtzee, Sequence and Family Feud.
Individually, Jen loves to read and craft. Jen's favorite authors include James Patterson, Jeff Kinney and Diane Chamberlain.
Lyle likes to play video games. Lyle's favorite video games are Madden and MLB The Show.
Our Individual Strengths
Jen is very organized, smart and studious. She is hardworking and dedicated to everything she does. Jen is caring and always takes care of her family. She is very nurturing at home and her job at the daycare. Jen is a very good baker and known in the family as the best cookie baker!
Lyle is very patient, kind, loyal and strong. He's always willing to lend a hand and he's very good at following directions. Lyle is very good with numbers and deals with all the bills in our household. Lyle is very athletic and excels at every sport he tries.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small town in Maryland with a diverse community. Our neighborhood was just built a few years ago and most of our neighbors have children. Our neighbors are very friendly and always ready to lend a hand.
We have a spacious house with four bedrooms, a large open living area, a basement full of games and an extra room for the child to house toys and books.
There is a park and recreational center right down the street, less than five minutes away. Another park that is just 10 minutes from our home has basketball courts, baseball fields, a waterpark and a playground. We live near a naval base that has playgrounds, picnic areas and a beach. There are larger parks within 20 minutes of our home that we frequently visit to hike, go to the beach and be near the water. Each park has a unique playground that we like to visit with friends and their children.
We have many schools in our community and that we are still active with because Lyle and his dad coach baseball at the local high school.
Our town is a great place for a child to grow up and will have many different opportunities provided to them.
Our Extended Families
We both are very close to our parents and grandparents. Lyle's parents, brother and grandparents live 10 minutes from us. Jen's parents and brother live two hours away but visit once a month. We often all get together for holidays and birthdays. We love to have game nights and go out to dinner with both families and often travel together.
Our family is unique because Lyle's dad, Jen's dad, Jen's brother and Jen's grandfather all have the same name so it can be very confusing when everyone is together! We had to come up with nicknames so when we say their name they all don't answer.
We have a lot of fun family traditions that we can't wait to share with a child. Every year on New Year's Day we go to Lyle's grandparents' home and have a Mexican feast. We often all go to baseball games together during summertime including the 4th of July. Every few years, Jen's family travels with us to see family in Florida and enjoy the sunshine state.
Both families are very supportive about our adoption plan. This will be the first grandchild on either side of our extended family, and our parents are so excited to become grandparents!
From Us to You
We appreciate you visiting our profile and considering adoption for your child. We cannot imagine how difficult a decision this must be for you. We promise to give your child a safe, stable and loving home.
We are a young married couple excited to become first-time parents. We have been married for two years and are ready to bring a child into our life through this process. We chose the path of adoption because we are unable to conceive biological children. It was a difficult decision but after much reflection, we came to this conclusion because we have always dreamed of having our own family. We know this will be a lifelong journey and we are here to support you along this road. We admire your courage and strength and hope to give you peace of mind that your child will grow up in a wonderful home.
Currently, Lyle works for the government as a contract specialist on a naval base. He has been in his position for quite some time and enjoys his work with numbers. Jen currently works at the child care center on the naval base but plans on being a stay at home mom once we bring a child into the home. Jen loves working with children and enjoys seeing children learn and grow. Jen wants to be a stay-at-home mom so that our child is shown all the love and caring her mom showed her as a child. We feel it's important to be present in the child's life and be there for all the big and little milestones that will occur throughout life.
For a future child, we value education, learning, respect and family life. We will encourage our child to pursue their interests and learn new things. We hope to assist our child to reach their full potential and become a responsible, independent member of society.
We are very open to having birth parents in the child's life through letters, pictures, videos, emails and visits. We are open to having visits each year and making it work for the whole family. We are extremely close with both of our parents so this child will have four loving grandparents and two uncles that will give them tons of love. We are a very open and honest couple so we plan to share the child's adoption story with them. We will use pictures and books as a young child and then have those conversations as the child grows and matures. We will ensure the child knows you love them and how difficult the decision was for you.
Our family loves sports, games, traveling and spending time together so this child can look forward to always having something to do and someone to talk with. A day in our life consists of working, working out, making dinner, and relaxing at night by watching TV, sports or playing board games. We will always have our child as our priority and look forward to making new memories with them.
Thank you for considering us as potential parents for your child. We know that you have a very difficult decision ahead of you and we hope you can find peace in whatever decision you choose to make.
