Jay & Kevin

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for reading through our profile and taking the time to get to know a little about us. We have been feeling many different emotions through out this process and we are assuming that you are too. You are not alone. We are excited, nervous, anxious, restless and inspired. However, in the midst of all the emotions we are sure of a few things.

First, we are grateful that you are considering adoption and we understand that reaching a decision such as this may not have been an easy one. Second, we are ready to love. We’ve always dreamed of becoming fathers and being able to have the opportunity to share our love and compassion with a child. That would be a dream come true.

Finally, we want nothing but the best for you and your baby. We want your baby to become a strong, loving, independent, well-rounded, caring and well-educated person; to become all that he/she is meant to be. We promise to make every effort to support, encourage and love your baby through every step of their journey in life.



About Us

contact

We met 4th of July weekend 2011 when we were both visiting the San Francisco Bay Area from different parts of the country for different reasons. We knew there was an instant connection and we quickly discovered that we shared the same goals and dreams about the future. We both believe in living life to the fullest and try to enjoy every moment of every day. Both of us really enjoy the outdoors; we like to go hiking, snowshoeing, and biking. We are also avid travelers and enjoy learning about different people and places.


Our Home

contact

We live in a suburb of a large city on a safe residential street. Our home has three bedrooms, three baths and was built in a colonial style. The local park for residents is a short walking distance away and has a pool, swim team, marina, two playgrounds and a large picnic area. Some of our public and private schools are also among the best in the nation. Children regularly play up and down our block and the sound of their laughter can be heard regularly through the open windows during the summer.


Our Extended Family

contact

We both come from big families that enjoy getting together. We chose to leave the West Coast for the Midwest so that we could be closer to our families. Family is very important to us and we felt like we were missing out by being so far away.

Now that we are back in the Midwest, Kevin’s family is a 10-minute drive and Jay’s family is a 4.5-hour drive. Last year we visited Yellowstone and Teton National Park with Kevin’s extended family and Jay’s mother. This year we went on a camping trip in the western part of Michigan with Jay’s family.

Kevin is a competitive sailor and sails with his uncle and father at weekly regattas. They have been sailing together on the same boat since Kevin was 15 years old.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

Early in our relationship, we talked about the desire we each had about having children. We both come from large families and understand the challenges, but also the immense joy raising a child can bring. As a gay couple, we decided adoption is the right path for us to grow our family and to share our love with a child. We both believe that a family is not defined by your genes, but it is built and maintained through love. We look forward to the honor of raising a boy or girl into the best man or woman they were meant to be.
