dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile! We can’t imagine what you are going through right now, but we truly appreciate you learning about us and hopefully considering us to raise your child. If you choose us, your child will have everything they want, need, and then some! We both have a very loving and supportive group of family and close friends who are beyond excited to love any little one we are blessed to have join our family. Your child’s health, care, and safety will always be our top priority. Your child will be taught manners, self-care, self-love, healthy eating and exercise, responsibility, basic life skills, and how to have a successful relationship…when the time is appropriate!

Family is at the heart of everything we do! We both are very family oriented. Both of us talk or communicate with our parents at least three to four times a week, if not every day. We are grateful to you for even considering us to provide a loving home for your child.
We cannot wait to bring home your beautiful bundle of joy and welcome them with open arms and full hearts! Thank you for considering us.

We confirmed that adopting a child was the missing piece of the puzzle we needed to have the family we always dreamed of. The idea of adopting a child brings us so much joy!

About Us

We are a very friendly, caring, responsible, fun, funny, and loving couple! Jared is currently working for a professional education company and has quickly worked his way up to Director of Sales. Erin works at a home decor and furniture showroom as a sales consultant. We love to watch our TV shows together, cook and bake, puzzle, exercise, and spend quality time with family and friends. We are high school sweethearts! We met through youth group at a camp retreat. A friend of ours introduced us, and we have been together for 17 years now. We get up at 5:00 every morning. Our morning routine involves working out, feeding the dogs, and all the other typical morning stuff to prep for work. Jared also coaches youth wrestling in the evenings three times a week.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a smaller neighborhood right next to an elementary school with a great school district. We have a lot to do in Texas and can get to most attractions in Texas in five hours or less. We are both born and raised in Texas and love how many things there are to do here, from waterparks to the zoo. We love animals and have three pets. We have two dogs: Harlee (English bulldog) and Dixie (Chihuahua mix). We also have a bird named Kiki (Senegal parrot).

Our Extended Family

Jared has a large extended family. He has two younger brothers, dozens of cousins, and family living all over the country, including Illinois, Pennsylvania, California, and New York. Erin comes from a smaller family. She has a half-sister and a niece and nephew. She also has cousins, aunts and uncles around the country, including South Carolina, Minnesota, and Hawaii.

Jared’s family has lots of traditions. His mom and his aunt alternate between hosting Thanksgiving at their homes, and the women go shopping on Black Friday. We always eat Mexican food and open all our Hanukkah gifts on Christmas Eve. Erin’s family traditions include mashed rutabagas for Thanksgiving (as one of the sides), donuts on the first night of Hanukkah, and eating Chinese food and watching movies on Christmas Day.

Our family takes pictures of everything (even food), communicates all the time, loves to sing, be artistic, and laughs a lot. There is truly never a dull moment when we are together. We love to have meals with family, whether at each other’s homes cooking together or eating out. We also love to travel with family members and look forward to doing that with our child!

What Led Us To Adoption

After attempting to get pregnant naturally and then a few years of infertility with various treatments, we decided adoption was our best chance of having a family. We have a friend who has had two successful and beautiful adoptions through LifeLong Adoptions. After talking things over with our friend and then meeting with the director at LifeLong, we both agreed this was the best place for us! We confirmed that adopting a child was the missing piece of the puzzle we needed to have the family we always dreamed of. The idea of adopting a child brings us so much joy!
