State we live in: Pennsylvania

dear expectant mother

Hi. We can only imagine that this must be hard for you. We cannot begin to understand what it feels like to be in your shoes and having to make this choice. It's such an awful feeling when what feels like the best thing to do also may hurt the most. We can only assume you may be filled with fear and confusion. It takes a lot of emotional maturity, selflessness, and strength to consider an adoption plan. It's not something we take lightly, and we understand and appreciate all of the love that has gone into this decision. A piece of you will always be with your baby forever.

If you choose us to love, nurture, and protect your precious baby, they will always know that their birth mom loved them SO much that she chose to let us take care of them because she knew we would love them forever and unconditionally.

A piece of you will always be with your baby forever.

About Us

We have been together for 13 years, married for almost eight. Marvin owns a restaurant in our area, and Jessica runs a nonprofit animal rescue from home. We both consider ourselves to be fun-loving people who don't take ourselves too seriously. We are both big kids at heart. Together, we love going out to eat, hanging out with our dogs and cats, watching TV together, and going on day trips/adventures. The beach, mountains, public gardens, and apple orchards are all places we love to visit, depending on the season. Marvin is a pretty artistic guy and likes to paint and play guitar in his free time. He is also incredibly handy and has built most of our home from scratch. He has an amazing eye for design! Jessica loves to shop. Target is her second home. She also enjoys making handmade soap.

Our Home & Pets

In the hope of expanding our family, we recently bought a home in the suburbs of Pennsylvania. It has a nice big yard and plenty of bedrooms and is in a good school district! There are tons of families in our neighborhood. The neighborhood itself is quiet and safe. Everyone is friendly, and there's a good amount of nature we really enjoy. We have two dogs and three cats. We love taking the dogs to the woods for hikes and letting them swim in the creeks and rivers. Our pets are our family, and we love them dearly!

Our Extended Family

Both of our families live about one and a half hours from us. We make the trip to them as often as possible. Jessica is close with her aunt, uncle, and cousins, a few of whom were adopted, and Marvin has a great relationship with everyone in his family. We visit for every holiday. For Christmas and Thanksgiving, we usually get an Airbnb so we can bring our dogs, relax for a few days, and enjoy the mountains with our families. Every Christmas Eve, we do the Seven Fishes dinner and church. It's become a family tradition we really look forward to.

What Led Us To Adoption

We want to grow our family and feel that adoption is the best choice for us. Both sides of our family have adopted multiple children. We see how fulfilling their lives are because of adoption, and we look forward to growing our family the same way.
