Joseph & Lisa

Dear Expectant Mother,

We just want to take a moment to thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us and our family. We know that you can’t learn everything about us through these few short paragraphs, so we just want you to know that your baby will be joining a loving family that can’t be more excited to have a new addition.

We cannot imagine how hard it is for you to make this decision, but we cannot be more grateful that you are considering giving us a chance to grow our family. We promise to love and care for your baby in the same way we love and care for our son. We cannot wait to share our love, music, creativity, and sense of adventure with your baby. Our son is also ecstatic to be an older brother.

We just want to say thank you once again for taking the time to view our profile and considering us to be the future parents of your precious baby.


About Us

contact

We met online in 2013 and instantly fell in love. After only a few months, we decided to get our own place and were married in 2015. We now have a beautiful, rambunctious, three-year-old son and two dogs. Joe works in software sales for the government. His hobbies include fishing, playing video games, and anything to do with cars. Lisa is a pediatric registered nurse working toward her pediatric nurse practitioner license. Her hobbies include reading, pen drawing and watercolor, cooking, and playing tennis. As a family, we love to be outside. Our community is filled with family-friendly activities and events, such as parks and nature preserves, police and fire open houses, local fairs, and museums and historical sites. Our son, Harrison loves to draw, build Legos, ride his bike, and wear his Batman cape. He loves to lay in the park and watch the airplanes take off and doesn’t go anywhere without his stuffed bear.


Our Home

contact

We have a four-bedroom home in a quiet neighborhood that has a pool, tennis courts, walking trails, and four playgrounds. We have a large playroom where we do art, build Legos, and read. We also play in our large yard kicking the soccer ball and playing fetch with the dogs. We live 30 minutes outside of a major city, where there is a ton of museums, monuments, and events. Our first dog is a seven-year-old Samoyed named Piper. She is a gentle soul who loves to talk and people watch. Our second dog is a six-year-old red lab mix named Blaze that we rescued as a puppy. His favorite activities are napping and giving kisses.


Our Extended Family

contact

Joe has a large extended family, with the majority of them still living close by. Joe’s mother, stepfather, and brother live 20 minutes from us. Joe also has his grandma, great-aunt, four uncles, four aunts, and six cousins that all live within an hour from our house. Needless to say, we are all very close, and we see them on a weekly basis, from everything to family get-togethers to just hanging out throughout the week.

Lisa has a sister who is her best friend. She lives in Connecticut, but they talk every day on the phone. We see her on a monthly or bimonthly basis. Lisa’s sister is pregnant and is expecting around August, so our son and our new baby will have their first cousin on Lisa’s side.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

We have always wanted to adopt a child. Lisa grew up next door to a family that adopted their two children by open adoption and felt that their experience was very positive. She was also a nurse in the NICU for a few years, and there she experienced the blessing that adoption is. Joe has family that is adopted, and he found it to be a very positive experience. During our pregnancy with our son, Lisa had preeclampsia and was on bed rest for most of the pregnancy. She had lasting effects for a year post-delivery. Although we can have another baby, we feel that Lisa’s health is more important and have decided to complete our family through adoption.
