Greg & Jenn
Hello! We are a fun-loving couple, hoping and praying to grow our family through adoption. It has been our long awaited dream to be parents. Please know this child will grow up with unconditional love, happiness, and never ending support. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us. We hope to hear from you soon!
Our Leisure Time
We spend a lot of time with our family and friends. We make it a point to get together several times a month. We like to have game or movie nights, which is always so much fun with all the kids. Family dinners are always amazing and it is something we just won't go without! We love being outdoors! During the warmer months, you can find us sitting outside, listening to music, chatting with neighbors, grilling, and walking our dogs.
In the winter, we tend to stay indoors. We love making homemade pizzas, cuddling up with the dogs, and watching movies. We recently discovered a love for reading! A typical night after work is spent spending time together watching our favorite TV shows or reading a good book.
Greg played hockey growing up and was a star player on his high school team. He still loves the sport to this day and watches the Chicago Blackhawks every chance he gets.
Jenn enjoys baking, and interior design. She loves watching the Food Network channel, along with shows like Fixer Upper and Home Town.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Jenn About Greg: What I love about Greg is his ability to always make me feel secure and loved. He has this calming ability that's truly remarkable. I admire the man he has become. He is kind, caring, compassionate, loyal and honest. He is a hard worker, and always puts his family first. I love the way he always makes me feel protected and safe. He has so many wonderful qualities and I have no doubt in my mind he is going to be the best father.
Greg About Jenn: What I love about Jenn is her huge heart. She will always put aside her feelings to be there for you. I have seen her time and time again go out of her way just to show someone that she is there for them. I love her motivation and her drive. When she wants something, she works so hard to achieve her goals. She never quits. Lastly, her loving personality. Any place we go, children and animals always seem to flock to her. I know with all my heart she is going to be an amazing mother.
Our Professional Lives
Since about the age of 5 years old, Jenn has been passionate about doing hair. Jenn is a licensed hairstylist and owns a salon suite not far from our home. She enjoys the personal relationships she has built over the years and the ability to make people feel great about themselves. One of the great things about her career is the flexibility. Jenn works four days a week, but plans on reducing her schedule when we have a child.
Greg and his dad co-own two restaurants near our home. Greg enjoys his job and excels in team leadership. The business allows him to be involved in the community and help sponsor events. He is always looking out for his employees and helping them the best he can. While Greg works full time Monday through Friday, being an owner allows for flexibility in his schedule.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a newly built three bedroom house with a full basement and a big backyard in Indiana. When inside, we like to spend most of our time in our family room watching movies and cuddling with the dogs.
We live in an amazing subdivision filled with young families. We have become very good friends with many of our neighbors. This is a friendly neighborhood where everyone waves to each other; we all know each other's names! We all help each other out when in need. We feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful community. In the summer you can always find us outside! Every weekend there seems to be something going on. We get together for cookouts, bonfires and pool days! There are kids of all ages, but mostly very young here. We love hearing the laughter coming from them as they chase after each other playing, or ride their bikes from dawn to dusk. We are so excited to bring a child into this wonderful community.
The school systems in our town are 4-star schools! There are amazing parks, one within walking distance. We have a quaint little downtown area filled with shops and restaurants. Between the local sports and planned activities for the kids, there are plenty of family friendly events. We live about an hour away from a big city. There you will find museums, zoos, an aquarium, parks, restaurants, and shopping.
Our Extended Families
We have a large extended family living locally which include grandparents, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We always spend holidays, birthdays, and special occasions with each other. We enjoy getting together for family dinners and playing board games.
One of our traditions with Greg's family is tacos and tamales on Thanksgiving! It sounds different, but it's so refreshing after already having a couple traditional turkey dinners that weekend. We really look forward to that meal with the family.
Christmas was such a special time in both our families. Growing up as young kids, we both had the same Christmas morning routine. Our dads would video tape us as we came down the stairs. First, we had to check and see if Santa had his milk and cookies. After, we would excitedly look over and see all the presents Santa brought for us. It was always such a magical time. This is just one of the many traditions we are excited to share with our child someday.
Our families are over the moon with our decision to adopt. They are so excited and cannot wait to welcome this child into their lives. We are very blessed to not only have our families, but also our friends who have become family, by our side. They have given us endless amounts support.
From Us to You
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for reading through our profile. We cannot imagine the weight of this decision, but please know we are both here for you. We commend you for your bravery. We know this is a small glimpse into our lives. We are an open book, so please don't hesitate to ask us any questions.
We met in 2014 on an online dating app. We discovered we had grown up twenty minutes away from each other and shared some mutual friends. There was an instant connection and we have been inseparable ever since. We married in 2015. We had a small outdoor country wedding with just our close family and friends. Even with the extreme downpour that occurred, it was still the most intimate and perfect day.
We hope and pray every single day for the opportunity to become parents. It would be our greatest honor. We have so much love to give and only wish for the chance to give it. Our fertility journey began in 2016 when Jenn was diagnosed with PCOS. We were hopeful as our doctor told us it shouldn't be too hard to get pregnant. We had no such luck. It was a tremendously difficult time for us. After taking a break, we realized we were meant to create our family through adoption.
We promise if you consider us, this child will have such a bright, loving future. We want to raise a child who is honest, caring, and kind; in a safe and stable environment. Someone who knows right from wrong and will have compassion towards others. We will always encourage them to be true to themselves and to dream big and reach for the stars. Parenthood is something we have been yearning for since the day we were married and will never take this for granted. This child will grow up surrounded by unconditional love and support. We have the most amazing family and friends who have been through this entire journey with us. To say that they are excited is an understatement. We live in such a great community. The schools are amazing and our subdivision is filled with small children for this baby to grow up with.
We envision a home full of laughter and lasting memories. We want to carry on our family traditions along with creating new ones. We look forward to seeing their face light up the first time we take them to Disney World. We cannot wait to have family beach days with sandcastles and picnics. Jenn has always loved the zoo and cannot wait to share that love with this child. We are excited to share the joy of Christmas, it is a big deal in our home! We go all out with lights and decorations. We watch Christmas movies all month, drink hot cocoa and make Christmas cookies for our loved ones. We have been longing for the day we can add a little one to all our festivities and traditions.
This child will always know their origin. They would know that without a doubt you love them dearly and this decision was the hardest one you had to make. We are 100% open to an open adoption. If it's your wish, we will always send you pictures, letters, and emails. We will share as much or as little based on your comfort level.
Thank you again for considering us. It would truly mean the world if you chose us and made our dream of being parents a reality!
