Saying “Thank you!” is not enough for the selfless decision you have made in considering us as adoptive parents and we would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about both of us. What we have come to realize is there are no words powerful enough to truly express the gravity of our gratitude. Instead we will make a promise, a promise to provide the home you wish for your child, a home full of absolute love, laughter, happiness, fun, support, creativity, and respect. This will be a home where your child will grow and develop while being loved and supported.
Thank you for taking the time for reviewing our profile and to learn a little about why we would be the perfect parents for your child. We are looking forward to the day we can speak with you and get to know each other even better. A quotation which was a focal point at our wedding ceremony and which we have applied to our life together is the following: “Happiness often sneaks through a door you did not think was open”—and we hope that you will open the door to our family’s future!
We have been happily together for five years and married since spring of 2015. We are fortunate enough not only to have many wonderful similarities but also to have many interesting differences. Both of us love hiking, camping, traveling, dining out, singing in the car, going to the theater, farming, and spending quality time with family. Our individual interests allow us to introduce each other to new and exciting experiences: Rob enjoys carpentry, woodworking, keeping a tidy house and biking; on the other hand, Jason enjoys painting, touring museums, cooking and gardening. Rob works as a Registered Nurse providing support and clinical education during very tough times to families when they need it most. Jason works as a Clinical Support Coordinator where he coordinates lifesaving efforts for those in need.
We live in a ranch home nestled in an adorable small farming community on a six-acre wooded lot with 3 active streams, 4 berry patches, 2 peach trees, 2 apple trees, grape vines, 19 walnut trees and, most importantly, the friendliest neighbors we have ever met. Plus, we have the benefit of a large city only 20 minutes away, which affords us all of the modern amenities but just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. Our two dogs (Maggie and Charlie) are so sweet and are the perfect companions for a child. On many occasions they have been around children in our family and are patient, docile and loving with children. Plus, they are active with us during 5K runs for charitable causes, during our hikes, and, of course, keeping our toes warm during those cold winter nights.
Our Extended Family
I am proud to say we have the most amazing families; both sides are full of aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, parents, grandparents who provide us with love and support. We spend every possible free moment with our immediate and extended families; we gather for birthdays, holidays, and special celebrations. We cherish the time we have together and value the contributions each member makes to our family.
Our favorite times with family are, of course, Christmas, Chanukah, Thanksgiving, and the Fourth of July—we treasure these nights full of uncontrolled laughter and unlimited food for the body and soul. Both of us have many wonderful family traditions and are especially unique that we come from different religious and cultural backgrounds. Jason is Jewish, which means we get to celebrate Chanukah and Passover; Rob is Catholic, which means we get to celebrate Christmas and Easter!
We love the holidays very much and feel so fortunate that our varied backgrounds afford us the benefit of family holidays with those we love! Bringing a child into our home would allow that boy or girl to experience the best of both religious worlds and to learn to love everyone.
What Led Us To Adoption
Once we met, we immediately knew that the love we feel for each other needed to be showered on another person so we decided to adopt a child as soon as we became established in our new home and careers. We wanted to be financially stable enough to give opportunities and education necessary in bringing up a child. We are willing and able to provide support, resources, laughter, time, and—most importantly—unconditional, never-ending love to a child; raising your child in our home would be a dream come true.
