Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for taking the
opportunity to view our profile and considering us as you begin this
journey. Words cannot express how much
we appreciate and respect the courage behind the decisions you are making. We are forever grateful for you and pledge
our undying love, care, and dedication to your child if chosen. We have been praying for you and will
continue to pray for you throughout this process and will keep you in the
forefront of our minds.
Our family got its start
five years ago when Jason and I met at a softball meeting. Let’s just say we hit it off and have been
teammates since! Two years after we met
we were happily married and made it official. We have two children, Tanner, 16,
and Halle, 13, from Jason’s previous marriage. We also have an 11 year old dog
named Rusty. We have always wanted to have a child of our own together, but
unfortunately have been unable to. We are thankful for the opportunity to adopt
as we have room for another child in our home and our hearts. Halle and Tanner
are excited to welcome a little brother/sister into their lives.
We both love children and
are fortunate enough to work with them daily as teachers. Jason is a 6th grade
Geography teacher at our middle school. He also helps coach our son Tanner in
wrestling and runs a local wrestling club for athletes. Mandy is a 5th grade
teacher at our elementary school. She also is the head varsity softball coach
at our high school. In the summer she also coaches Halle’s softball team. Mandy
loves spending her Wednesday nights working with 2nd and 3rd graders at church.
We live in a small town in
Northern Indiana. It is a close knit community that strives to maintain a
tradition of excellence. Two years ago we moved to 7.5 acres of land in the
country. We love being able to go outside and play during any season. We enjoy
having company over to have cookouts and play yard games. With being teachers
and having the summers off, we enjoy spending time together as a family. We
like to walk/run at a county park down the road. We also love to travel to
Michigan to spend time at the beach. We enjoy being active, spending time on
the lake, and being with family and friends. When the weather is not great in
Indiana, we enjoy putting together puzzles or playing board games. Mandy’s
parents live within ten miles and we treasure spending our time with them.
As parents, we promise to
provide your child with the utmost love, care, and support that allows him/her
to have a great future. We promise to be
open and honest about the adoption, letting your child know how brave and
loving you were to make this choice. We
will continue to pray for you and your child.
You can trust that we will do everything we can to provide nurturing
care to help them to have a promising future.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us as the
future parents of your child.
“Family is not defined
through our genes…it is built and maintained through love.”
You are loved,
Jason and Mandy
