From Us to You

Thank you for considering us to be in your and your baby’s lives.  We know that this must be a tough decision for you. We are very loving and caring people.  We have tried to have a baby for many years but have been unable to do so on our own.  We have very big hearts that are ready to burst with love for your baby.

Jared works for a postal company that he has been with for 20 plus years.  Stacy has taught preschool but will become a stay at home mom when we become parents.  We live in a diverse area of Pennsylvania in a neighborhood with lots of kids and nearby parks.  We have a good size home with plenty of room for your baby to grow in.  We can’t wait to share the leaves changing, snow and sledding, swimming, zoos, museums, sporting events, and live theater.  We have a dog named Peanut that your baby will grow up with. Stacy’s parents (Bubbie and Pop-pop) live nearby with their dog, Belle, during the warmer months. Stacy is an only child and her parents can’t wait to spend time bonding with your baby. Jared’s parents (Grandma and Grandpa), and both of his sisters and their spouses live in other states. One of his sisters is expecting a baby who will be here in the fall, so your baby will have a cousin close in age.  We have tried to have a baby for many years but have been unable to do so on our own.  We have very big hearts that are ready to burst love for your baby.

Many of our vacations revolve around family and friends. We like to take vacations to visit them in their different states and cities. One of our traditions is to visit each city’s baseball stadium. While we are on vacation, we also like to go sightseeing and learn about that city.  One of our favorite things to do is to cruise.  In fact, we got engaged on a cruise.  There are still places left on our travel wish list, both in the states and out of the states.  Your baby will get to see and experience so many exciting places and will be surrounded by a loving family.

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

Shortly after we were married, we began trying to become pregnant.  After many trials and tribulations, it did not happen.  We believe that becoming a parent can be accomplished in many ways and we have always been open to adoption.  We have friends who were adopted and we have friends who have adopted children as well as having biological children and we see no difference in how they are loved.  We both feel that we have so much to offer a child and can offer a good life both financially and emotionally.  As happy as we are with each other, we feel like there is a piece of our puzzle missing.

About Stacy, by Jared

Stacy is a very sweet, kind, and loving person. She has a heart of gold and many times put others in front of her in times of need. Stacy is a great communicator and listens to what others have to say. She is always there for people, not just me. I love that we both like to travel and see many adventures along the way in and out of the US. Sports are a big part of our lives. I love the fact that she is as big of a fan as I am. I love that Stacy is a great chef and my belly is always satisfied. I enjoy cooking and helping Stacy by being her sous chef. She has taught me new recipes and styles of cooking. One of the things that attracted me most when we met, is that Stacy loves and is great with children and wanted her own as much as I did. Stacy has made me a better person since we have been together. She taught me things that I never thought I would learn. She’s been such a fantastic person to be married to and love.  A child would complete her.

About Jared, by Stacy

Jared is very kind and loving. I love that he is willing to help me with anything, little or big. He will come and run errands with me to just keep me company and spend time together. We spend a lot of time at home but also at the live theater. We will go to a lot of baseball games both here and around North America. We enjoy traveling and have seen many things. He will go sightseeing with me even though he likes to relax. He is great at helping me reach something because it is too high for me to reach. There is no doubt in my mind that he will be a great hands-on dad and will be able to go to school and sporting events with our child because he works overnight and is off during the day. He is very much looking forward to being a dad.

How We Met

Stacy’s cousin is married to Jared’s aunt, and although Stacy and Jared lived in different states, they thought that we were a good match. After speaking on the phone every night for months, we decided to meet in Florida at Stacy’s family reunion. For Jared, it was love at first sight. It took Stacy a little bit longer and Jared was persistent but patient! A year after meeting and many plane rides to spend time together, Jared popped the question on a family cruise. Eight months later, we were married. We have been happily married since September 2011.

Our Lifestyle

We go to the theater and see live shows often. Also, we travel both in the states and once in a while out of the US. We are both huge baseball fans and are trying to see all of the stadiums. We try to visit each park at least once. Sometimes we have taken friends or family with us. When we travel, we like to go to museums and restaurants. We try to see friends whether it is here or at their house (both in our area and not). We have family events that we try to go to often. This summer, we plan to travel to a family wedding. We enjoy being in the kitchen cooking and prepping. We will teach your child all of these things as well.

When we are home, we do watch sports on TV (especially baseball) and also some dramas.  We like to play cards and board games while we are watching TV.

We have a list of books that we are collecting to put on our registry for us to read to your baby. They include:– Harold and the Purple Crayon– Brown Bear Brown Bear– Good night Moon– Green eggs and ham– One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish

Meet Our Dogs

Peanut is very good and very chill. He loves playing with other dogs and our friends’ kids. He gives out kisses all the time to them. We got him a few months after we were married.

Belle is Stacy’s parents’ dog but we see her often at her house in both places, so your child will spend a lot of time with Belle too. Stacy and her mom adopted her at a shelter in Nov of 2019. She is very sweet and loving with people but not dogs.

Racial & Cultural Diversity

We are open to all races and will educate our child as to his/her biological heritage through, books and classes and interaction with other children who share their background.  We have many cultures in our neighborhoods- Chinese, Indian, Puerto Rican, Greek, Korean, South African, Israeli, Iranian, African, Iraqi.  There is complete respect for each other and we share our food cultures at an International Block Party every summer.  Being Jewish, we know what prejudice looks like and we will do everything in our power to instill pride in your child’s heritage.  We will encourage questions because we believe that knowledge can overcome prejudice.

Home & Neighborhood

We live in a suburban neighborhood outside of a large city in Pennsylvania.  We live on a street that ends in a cul-de-sac where we have mostly young couples and lots of children who enjoy playing outside.  We have four bedrooms, four baths, and a two car garage.  Our basement is finished and will make a great playroom.  We are about a mile from a walking trail and a mile in another direction of a fantastic recreation center that has ball fields, playgrounds, a basketball court, and an indoor/outdoor pool.  Our school district is one of the 3% of top schools in our state.  The school buses come to our street near our house.

We are very close to a few of our neighbors on our street and several in the development across from us. We are always with them and their children and dogs. We have parks and walking trails that are not far from us. Our backyard is big. We are looking forward to putting a playset in there for your child.  We are looking forward to going on walks around the neighborhood, playing games both indoors and outdoors, and taking your child swimming.

Our Families & Friends

We live 10 minutes from Stacy’s parents when they are here in the warmer months and see them often.  Jared’s parents live in another state but they do come to visit and we Zoom or Facetime with them.  Our siblings live out of state but we communicate with them on a regular basis.  We have a group of multi-generational friends that have become family to us.  We are not only multi-generational but multi-cultural also.  We spend holidays with them and have supported each other during the highs and lows of life. No one is more than a phone call away.   We have friendly neighbors who look out for each other and friends outside of our neighborhood who we socialize with.  Many of our friends have small kids that will be great playmates and role models.

Family Traditions

We have many traditions. Our home is the home where our friends like to gather.  We usually host Super Bowl and New Year’s Eve parties.  We are both Jewish and spend all the major Jewish holidays with Stacy’s parents- sometimes Jared’s parents travel to spend holidays with us also.  On Christmas Day, we volunteer to feed homeless and food insecure people through the Salvation Army so that paid workers can have the day off to spend with their families.  During the summers, we attend our International Block Party where we celebrate our multi-diverse cultures (with food, of course!)

Our Promise to You

We are eternally grateful to you for trusting us to raise and love your child.  We will always let him/her know that he/she grew in someone else’s body but landed in our hearts.  If you so choose, we will send you pictures and updates regularly.  At some point, if both you and your child want to meet or speak to one another, we are open to it.

We promise to protect and love this child and provide a safe and loving home and environment for him/her.  We will provide all of the necessities and educational opportunities but we will not spoil this child with everything that he/she would want.  We will teach him/her the value of a dollar and the integrity of a good work ethic.

We take parenthood very seriously and would be proud to become parents to this child you are carrying.  Our arms and hearts long to have a baby to love.
