Dear Expectant Mother,
There are no words which can truly express our gratitude and thanks for taking the time to look at our profile. We are humbled by your bravery and want to honor and respect your decision. To love and raise a child would be a dream come true for us.
We believe in God, Family, and Country. These are the cornerstones of our family and, if you were to choose us as adoptive parents, your child would be the center of our universe. Your child will be protected, provided for, and most importantly, he or she will have our unconditional love. We have a dog and three cats who are looking forward to a two-legged sibling! Your child will live in a family-friendly neighborhood with lots of other diverse children to grow up with. We cannot wait to teach a child anything and everything. We are excited to share our favorite holidays, music, books, movies, and our love of travel.
We have been through many obstacles together, including military deployments and beating breast cancer. We’re ready for our next big adventure as moms. If you choose us, we would cherish the life of your child - we know life is precious and fleeting, and we must live every moment to its fullest.
Again, we are so grateful for looking at our profile. Throughout the years, your child will know how strong you truly are for the difficult decision you are making.
We met when we were both active duty while serving in a Naval helicopter squadron in San Diego, California. We built a solid friendship before dating. We have now been together for over eight years and married for three. Our military life has strengthened our relationship in a way most couples never face. After a few months of dating, we were separated for a year because of deployments. Once we were reunited after that first long deployment, we knew we could get through anything together.
We have completely different backgrounds but our personalities go together like peas and carrots. We love to hang out at home with our dog, Jedi, and three cats. While Sarah is deployed, Jennifer will often travel overseas to visit. We will also travel to other countries together. Our bucket list of destinations is long and we can’t wait to have children to share our travels with.
We recently bought our very first home in a suburb of San Diego. We are thrilled to be homeowners. We are excited to raise children in our four-bedroom, three-bath home. We share our home with Jennifer’s mom, Pat. Our dog, Jedi, loves kids, and our three cats, Kenji, Zoe, and Sami love to snuggle. Along with Pat’s dog, Dani, we are frequent visitors to Dog Beach and two dog parks next to our home. Holidays in our neighborhood are filled with community children enjoying fireworks, pool parties, movies in the park, festival lights, and the ice cream truck that we watch drive by year-round.
Our Extended Family
Jennifer’s mother, Pat, is retired and lives with us. She has her own space in our home and is excited to hear the pitter-patter of little feet running around. She raised Jennifer in Florida and has moved to Texas and now California with us. We are close with both sides of our family. Jenn’s family hails from Massachusetts and Florida. Sarah has a ton of siblings in Texas. Through phone calls, texts, and social media we are constantly in contact. We have so many nieces and nephews to love. We are ready to share our own children with our families.
Since being stationed in San Diego, our families have recently started spending their holidays with us. Our nieces and nephews always have a blast sightseeing and touring Navy squadrons and ships. Thanksgiving was spent on board USS BOXER this year. We love our families, which includes our Navy family. Through deployments our Navy support system keeps Jennifer and her mom taken care of.
What Led Us To Adoption
We want to adopt because we believe every child deserves a loving home, and we want a child of our own to love, teach, and watch grow into a wonderful human being. We actually began talking about adoption about five years ago. Once we bought a home and decided to put down roots in San Diego, we agreed it was time to start the adoption process.
