dear expectant mother

To us, creating an adoption plan is a true definition of unconditional love and bravery, and quite honestly, words will never be enough to show the gratitude we have toward you as you navigate this process.
We have learned that life is often defined by those hard decisions we face, now being one of those moments for you. We can only imagine what you are feeling at the present time, but we hope you find comfort in knowing we will always be there for your child, and we will have our village helping us along the way. As a couple, we have always felt it takes a village to raise a child, and we have found out over the years what that really means: having a community full of love in our family and friends. Your child will be loved beyond measure, and they will be taught to be kind to everyone they meet and to dream as big as they want because the support we will have for our children will be infinite.
We want to thank you from the deepest parts of our hearts for considering us as parents for your child. It would be the greatest honor and most generous gift to love and raise your child!

About Us

We met in August 2015 while Jessica was visiting her family in Ohio from California. It was an instant connection due to our love for conversation, which was vital for long-distance dating. As a couple, we balance one another out and find the beauty in all experiences. Jessica is the outwardly adventurous one, while Mary eases into it slowly, but at the end of the day, Mary is the one you have to literally pull home! We take pleasure in spending time with family and friends in our free time and love camping, traveling, and enjoying local festivals and museums. We equally cherish just hanging out at home with our fur babies, reading, and playing games! We delight in learning new things and can be described by our friends as honest, loving yet goofy, and, most importantly, having the type of relationship all people wish they could have!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a cozy townhome right in the heart of a booming suburb! Our home’s southern side
faces a lush wooded area and a freshwater creek that provides a tranquil area for us to enjoy. We are not far from the bustle of the city, with beautiful museums and a fun, artistic vibe, but are also surrounded by an amazing array of parks, hiking trails, and many lakes we visit often as well. We have two playful cats, Milo and Franklin, and our gentle giant, Loki. He’s a two-year-old shepherd mix, and he is 90 pounds of love. Milo and Frank were rescues, and Loki came into our home through adoption.

Our Extended Family

Mary is the third daughter of four in her family, and Jessica is the oldest of three, with a younger brother and sister. We are a musical family through and through! Mary’s father is a local pastor in her hometown, and all our siblings, their spouses, and our nieces and nephews on that side of the family are active in the church choir and musicals. Family gatherings include many songs, lots of guitar playing, family harmonizing, and laughter. It is like The Sound of Music in real life!
Jessica grew up near a lake, and we love to get together and spend many summer days by the water, taking golf cart rides then unwinding around a bonfire, finishing the night with stories and laughter. The best part of our families are the connections they have developed with one another. Mary’s family has invited Jess’s family over and vice versa! We feel honored to have such a loving and connected family, and we cannot wait to share those relationships and family traditions as we grow our family.
Everyone is beyond thrilled for this next step in our lives and look forward to knowing and loving your child! They have been looking forward to this moment since we met, and we cannot wait to share all of our family traditions with your child and create our own traditions as well.

What Led Us To Adoption

From a young age, we have seen the beauty of adoption firsthand and have known individually it would be part of our family story in some way. From the moment we met, we both discussed how we wanted to hear the laughter of children in our home one day, so it was never a matter of if but when. We feel as though our life has led us to the point that we are ready to begin our family, and it always felt natural to take this path. We know in our hearts we have so much to offer your child. God has prepared our hearts for this moment for years, and our desire to have children has been full of hope and love.
