From Us to You

We want to start by saying that we are already praying for you and your baby.  We believe that God has a plan for us all and we pray God grows our family and your trust in Him through this adoption.  We have had multiple ups and downs with trying to get pregnant over the years which include many miscarriages and heartache.  However, we are hopeful that God will grant us a child to love and care for.

We can’t even imagine what you are going through, but we know this is a difficult decision to make.  We both want to support you in your decision making and let you know you have a lot of support. Please know that we will raise your child in the most loving home with grandparents right next door, a safe and stable neighborhood with an excellent school system, parks, pools, and the beach close by.

We’re a pretty active couple that loves making memories with family, friends and with our two dogs.  As you can see by all our pictures, we love to travel and experience life, but we’re especially excited to introduce a child to all that life can offer.  They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we have a lot of support from our family, friends, and our church to give us advice and instruction to make sure we raise your child with values, ethics, a love for exploration and travel, a love for family and most importantly a passion for God.

With us, your child will be surrounded with love, laughter, kindness, adventure and God as he or she grows up.  We feel extremely blessed that God led us to the pathway of adoption to grow our family and we are so thankful that we get this opportunity to share about our life, and to also get to know you better.

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

We are choosing to adopt because we have always wanted a big family but have been unable to have children of our own.  Although we have struggled through a couple miscarriages and an unsuccessful attempt with IVF, we are certain that it was God’s way of leading us to adopt a child .  It would be our honor to welcome a child into our home and give them an amazing life.

About Jason

Jason is a hardworking, dependable, smart, funny, compassionate, and adventurous man of God who loves to be outdoors and in nature.  He’s been a union pipefitter for a number of years, working with multiple companies ranging from refineries to breweries and has a ton of experience with building new things.  He’s extremely creative and loves to work with his hands by constructing new outdoor games or fixing things around the house.  He also loves spending time with his family or anything outside.  He’s an avid camper, hiker, swimmer and loves to travel.  We make an excellent team while traveling and Jason loves to share our love of travel and new experiences with our friends and family.  Jason is really funny, has a great imagination and can be super silly, which makes him the go-to uncle to play with or build the most epic Hot Wheels track with.  Some of his favorite hobbies are photography and puzzling.  He takes amazing pictures of landscapes and has a real eye for seeing the beauty in everything. Jason pays great attention to detail in his work and hobbies which is why he’s been labeled in the family as the puzzle master!  He’s an amazing husband who is always caring and loving others while also leading and guiding our family to love and honor our Lord.  He sets a wonderful, Godly example for our friends, our family and for his co-workers.  I feel so blessed to have Jason as my husband and I couldn’t ask for a better relationship with my best friend.

About Kim

When I first met Kim, I thought she had the cutest smile and a great laugh.  From that moment I knew I had to get to know her and asked for her number the same night we met.  The next day I called, picked her up and we went bowling for our first date.  She won all three games, and that’s when I found out how athletic she is.  She was playing water polo in college at that time and was ranked 14th in the nation.  Kim grew up playing all kinds of sports, including soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, and even baseball.  Not only is Kim athletic, but she is really smart too.  She has her bachelor’s degree in Geography and a Masters in Nutritional Science.   Kim loves to help people learn to eat healthy as a Registered Dietitian.  Kim loves to bake and has come in first place a couple times in our yearly pie baking contest at church.  She is always ready to bake a pie, cake, or cupcakes for our family or friends’ birthdays.  I know she will be a great mom because of the way she is with our nephews and niece. She’s always there for them. She listens to what’s going on in their lives, plays with them, and teaches them how to be better people as they grow up.  She always makes time for people, and is willing to help with whatever they need.  Kim is a positive, intelligent, funny, beautiful woman and I am extremely blessed to call her my wife.

Our Sweet Pups

We currently have two Labrador Retrievers named Maverick (boy) and Charlie (girl).  They love to be active, and we take them on daily walks, trips to the beach, camping and on vacation when we can!  They are extremely well trained and love everybody they meet, especially kids.  They are amazing dogs who are best described as the best cuddle dogs ever with the most contagious smiles.

Our Home

We live in a cozy, four-bedroom, two-bath house right next to Kim’s parents, which will be very convenient for babysitting and daily visits for the grandparents to spoil your child.  It’s a quiet and safe neighborhood with a park and playgrounds just down the street.  The beach is just a few miles away so we can easily take the dogs down for a swim or walk with our future children.  We have been blessed with a large backyard where we play with our dogs and spend time with our family and friends competing in various backyard games and hosting BBQ’s.  Our neighbors are extremely friendly, kind and always willing to lend a helping hand.  We even share salsa or cupcake recipes and always feel comfortable borrowing a cup of sugar here and there or lending out a tool to fix a neighbor’s fence.  We’ve lived here for a little over 11 years and see it as our forever home because it’s so close to our church and our immediate families.

Our Families and Friends

Our families are made up of some amazing people who are a big part of our lives and have made us the people we are today.  Right now, we live close to both sides and see them as often as we can for dinners, game nights, birthdays, and holidays.  Both sets of parents are still very involved in our lives and we love to travel with them or just spend an afternoon together.

Your child will be blessed with 4 uncles and 2 aunts combined from both sides as well as 3 cousins to play with and learn from.  We both love being an uncle and aunt to our niece and nephews and we enjoy helping to teach them to swim, hike, ride their bikes and eat healthy.

We feel that family is a vital part of our lives and your child will be a welcomed addition to the family.

Our friends are family to us!!  Many of our friends live close, but some have moved out of state which means we have many opportunities to travel and plenty of people to visit.  We love getting together with our fellowship group members from church who have become more like family to us.  Most of our friends have young children so our future kids will have many playmates and play dates to look forward to.  We celebrate holidays and birthdays with all our friends as well.  Outdoor activities such as BBQs, hiking, swimming, kayaking, or going to the beach for the day or bonfires are also what we enjoy doing with friends.  We meet up with our fellowship group friends at least once a week to talk about the Sunday sermon and to catch up with what’s happening.  We love hearing all about what God is doing in their lives!

Our Traditions

We love spending time with family and celebrating all the holidays together.  Some of our Christmas traditions include opening one present on Christmas Eve together and we started gifting experiences rather than things for our family members, such as tickets to a play, concert, or a museum so that we can make memories with them.  We believe memories and spending time together are more important than material things.  Other holidays like Easter, Fourth of July and Thanksgiving are also centered on family and sharing great food together.  For friends’ and family members’ birthdays, Kim loves to bake them their favorite pie, cupcake or cake and decorate it with their favorite candy, frosting or theme.   Another tradition from Jason’s side of the family centers on a secret family taco sauce recipe that gets made from memory only by those who have watched it get made in the past.  Sometimes the maker of the sauce will put their own personal flair to it by increasing the spice or keeping it mild.  This family tradition was first started by Jason’s grandma and has been passed down through the generations and used specifically for family birthdays.

We also have our church tradition of Fall Fest every year on October 31st, which the church does to provide an alternative to Halloween.  This is where we get to dress up in costume, enjoy a meal and candy with our friends and family, and it’s where Kim bakes pies for the pie contest (and won twice!). It’s a great way to get together as a church in a safe, fun and encouraging way.

Our Vacations

We love to travel and explore new places around the country and around the world.  We’ve been to Hawaii a few times, have taken many road trips around the country and traveled to Europe once.  In all our travels, we love just spending time together and learning new things about the places we go.  We also love learning about different cultures and new foods as well.  Road tripping, seeing new places, and being in the car together, especially with our dogs is one of our favorite things to do.  When we can be in nature together, we can truly appreciate all that God created.  We go up to the mountains at least once a year and would love to own a cabin one day, especially near a lake.  We can’t wait to instill that sense of adventure in our future children.

Our Careers

Jason is passionate about construction and creating new things with his hands.  He went to trade school right out of high school, and he’s been a union Pipefitter for many years and has a lot of experience working in breweries and refineries where industrial piping is most prevalent.   He loves being able to build new things and calculate complicated layouts for his team.

Kim serves her community by being a Registered Dietitian and is passionate about healthy living, nutrition, and exercise.  Kim works in two different locations – full time as a lecturer for a University and is a per diem Dietitian at a hospital nearby.  At the hospital Kim is involved in in-patient care, long term rehab care and outpatient nutrition counseling.  Kim is also part of the bariatric surgery committee where she leads support groups, does nutrition education, and follows up with patients to help them lead healthier lives.  At the university, Kim teaches many nutrition courses that range from an Intro to Nutrition course to some upper division courses about nutrition counseling and another about Medical Nutrition Therapy. She loves what she does for a living and is excited to share the importance of nutrition with the community and with family.

How a Child will Enrich our Lives

We feel truly blessed to have such a great relationship together and know that will grow when we have a child to share it with.  In the Bible, God says that children are a gift, and you would be helping us receive that gift.  Being able to watch your child grow up knowing God, playing sports, doing school activities, going to college, and getting married are all things that we are looking forward to cherishing. Our parents are especially excited for a grandchild to love.

Our Faith

Our faith is something we are very passionate about and we trust in God to lead us and guide us every day.  We attend a Christian church near our house that is centered on the Bible.  We also attend a fellowship group that meets at least once per week where we learn more about God’s word, which helps us in our daily walk with the Lord.  We also serve where needed, like setting up/breaking down events and working in the hospitality ministry.  Our church family is so important to us and we want to be able to share the Gospel and all that our church has to offer with your child.

Our Lifestyle

We both love to be in nature and enjoy what God has created by camping, hiking, snowboarding, skiing, kayaking in the marina, playing sports or by taking a trip up to the mountains for some fresh air.  We’re a pretty active couple and love to be on the move with our dogs in tow.  If we could take them everywhere, we definitely would!

We both love watching and attending live sporting events too, whether it be football, baseball, hockey, or basketball and would love to teach a child about different sports and get them involved in something they enjoy.  We also enjoy playing sports as well – we both have an epic golf game and Kim loves playing beach volleyball.

Since we live in Southern California, we have annual passes to Disneyland which has been an entertainment staple for the last 5 years. We cherish all the memories we’ve been able to make with Jason’s family who are also Annual Pass-holders. When we go with the family, we enjoy the food, going on rides and watching the fireworks.  Before it closed for Covid, we would often go there for date nights and we can’t wait to share the magic with a little one.

Traveling is also a huge part of our lives. We have been to many places all over California and have recently explored Denver, parts of Utah, Arizona, and Hawaii. We’ve traveled to Europe once and definitely enjoyed all the culture we experienced.

Other hobbies of ours include going to live concerts, which we can’t wait for the return of! We also love going to the mountains and relaxing or taking a hike in the fresh air.  Kim loves making delicious food, baking sweet treats, and overall keeping the family well fed with nutritious options.  Jason also loves fixing things around the house and reading a good book.

Our Promise to You

We promise to provide a safe and stable home for your child and to love them as much as humanly possible. Your child will always be cared for and will know the love of our family and friends as well as our love for them.  We will raise our children to know God, to love Him and to follow His ways. We will also encourage involvement in sports, travel, outdoor activities, and academics.  We commit to being as open as we can with your beautiful child and will tell him or her as much about you as you want us to reveal. We will encourage them to be silly and enjoy the fun parts of life but to also be honest, responsible, to love others and show kindness.
