Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: California

dear expectant mother

The number one thing we would like for you to know is that we love you and your child. We love you for being brave, for bringing a young one into this world, and for considering us to be the parents for your child. We haven’t met you yet, but we have been waiting for someone like you our whole lives: someone who doesn’t judge us for who we are and someone who recognizes the good in the world by trusting a couple to raise and love your child.

We can only imagine the challenges and struggles you have faced that have brought you to this point in your life. We know this must be one of the most difficult decisions you have ever made. The gratitude we have for you cannot be expressed in words. You and your child deserve prospective parents who will support you through this process without judgment. You can rest assured we will always treat your child with the same love and support as you have.

The next few months should and will be all about you: about your feelings, your thoughts, your desires, and your expectations. We are looking forward to connecting with you and supporting you through all of these emotions. We will make sure you never feel alone throughout the process, and we will always put you and your child first. We are in this together!

Love,
Jon and Braeden

We will make sure you never feel alone throughout the process, and we will always put you and your child first.

About Us

When we first met over ten years ago, we both felt a very special connection. From the many similarities between our backgrounds, families, and religious upbringing, we connected instantaneously. Braeden is a very caring, forgiving, and lovable person. His personality is a perfect fit for his career in human resources. Jon is a funny, giving, and understanding person, which makes him a great fit as a leader within his career as a healthcare administrator. We have lived in four different states but are happy to finally call Southern California home. We love being outdoors exploring our beautiful state, going to the beach, spending time with family and friends, and growing our collection of board and card games. Our perfect night is being home with our close friends or family sharing an evening of playing games or watching a movie.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a beautiful two-story home in a very safe and friendly gated community with lots of young families with children. We love to spend time with all of our neighbors outside, with their kids running and playing with each other. The city we live in is very warm and welcoming. Our favorite part is living fifteen minutes from several beaches. We also cherish every moment with our two cats: Nala (seven years old) and Maui (one year old). Nala is a domestic long hair who is a sweetheart and loves to be pet. Maui is a Snowshoe Siamese who is a wild and funny kitten who loves to cuddle and play with lots of toys.

Our Extended Family

Both of our large families are the most important thing in the world to us. Braeden is the youngest of eight, and Jon is the third youngest of eight. We absolutely cherish and adore our combined 39 nieces and nephews! Our families are very close to each other, and all the nieces and nephews consider each other their best friends. Both of our families reside in Idaho and Utah, but we all make lots of trips back and forth to see each other. When we get together, we all have a lot of fun playing games, eating good food, and making lasting memories together.

Some of our fondest memories are made at our yearly family reunions in Idaho for Braeden’s side of the family. We love playing in the lake, riding on the boat and jet skis, eating great meals, and playing games. This is the perfect opportunity for our nieces and nephews to make lasting memories of their own!

Another very special tradition is one of the yearly trips Jon’s family makes to visit us in California. We spend a lot of time visiting state tourist attractions, including a few days at Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Sea World, and a number of Southern California beaches.

What Led Us To Adoption

Having both grown up with large families, we always knew one day we would like to start a family of our own. From day one of meeting each other, we both told each other about future goals and aspirations. We both agreed adoption was one of our top relationship goals. Our journey together has led us to where we are today, and we are so thrilled to be ready to begin this with you! We know we both have so much love to give, and we cannot wait to share our home, family, and love with the child we will be welcoming into our lives.
