Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for reading our profile and learning about us. We have the same desire you have: a perfect family and loving home for your precious baby. We hope you have found that in us. Over the years, we have worked to create a comfortable, welcoming home, often opening it up to family and friends for birthday and anniversary parties, family holidays, or game nights, or just casual evenings with friends. We have had years of falling in love more and more through our day-to-day routines and the many adventures we have taken together, and we cannot wait to be that perfect home for a child and experience a whole new set of adventures as a family.
With your decision, you are making someone’s dreams of raising a child come true. Whether you choose us or someone else to raise your child, you will be choosing someone who longs to complete their family with the love for a child. There are lots of good homes you can choose, but we can promise you that our home will be a loving, nurturing one, filled with fun and laughter, creativity and imagination, support and encouragement, and care and comfort.
We have spent every day since meeting each other in Sioux Falls, SD, getting to know each other better and loving each other more and more every day. We love spending time together in all of our activities, like traveling, watching movies, shopping, playing with our dogs, attending fundraising events, and just spending quality time with our family and friends. Individually, James likes to listen to music, play the piano, and work in the yard; Jayden likes to cook/bake, read, and sing. We are adventurous explorers and down-to-earth homebodies wrapped up in one loving couple.
We love to laugh and sing and have fun, so it is important that our home is filled with those things. Our three bedroom house in California is in a community with a small-town, friendly, welcoming atmosphere and only a short drive to a bustling metropolitan area filled with history, museums, live theatre, and sporting events. We are also centrally located near beaches and mountains. We share our home with three adorable dogs who, when they aren’t lounging on the couch or digging through their toy boxes, love to take walks and go for car rides. Although we keep a cozy, welcoming home, we know a home is made up of more than walls and windows: a home is made up of the love shared by those who live there. We eagerly wait to share the warmth, love and serenity we have created in our home with a child.
Our Extended Family
We are close to both our families. Our parents and most of our siblings all live in the same city, so we are able to visit most of our family at the same time. Family is very important to us. We were fortunate to have James’ grandmother live with us before she passed away. Both our friends and families are supportive of our adoption journey and excited to include our child in our gatherings and traditions. They have begun their plans of loving, supporting and spoiling a potential new child.
We love to travel, as does our family, so we try to plan at least one trip a year together with whomever can make it. James’ grandparents have owned a timeshare in northern Minnesota for decades, and it has been tradition for the whole extended family to go there every year in the summer. Coming from a family of Disney lovers, we also try to fit in an annual Disney-related trip every year.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have dreamed of adopting for several years. We have always wanted to be dads. We have so much love to give, unlimited support and opportunities to provide. We want to share the love we have for each other, for our supportive family and friends, for our pets, and for life in general. We have been blessed with being involved in the lives of our nieces and nephews.
We have also been actively involved in the lives of our friends’ children, serving as Godfathers to some of them. Now, with a change in James’ employment, we are at a place that Jayden will be a stay-at-home dad for our future child. Your child, should you choose us, will be surrounded by love and encouragement, learning and playing, adventures and traditions, all creating lifelong memories!
