Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: Kentucky

dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to review our profile. We cannot begin to understand how a decision like this must feel. We can only promise to do our best to listen, support, and be there for you throughout. We’d like to thank you for choosing adoption, a decision we both believe to be the most selfless decision a woman can make. Because of you, we may be able to fulfill our dreams of becoming parents.

Becoming parents has been a lifelong dream for the two of us as we both want to share the traditions, values, and spirit in which we were both raised. We are excited to read bedtime stories while tucking them into bed every night. We will raise them with as much joy as we can and promise to focus on experiences and knowledge in their lives.

If you choose us, we promise the child you have blessed us with will only know unconditional love. We will support them with every fiber of our being. We will do our best to instill in them a strong character and a good heart while trying to provide every opportunity in the world. We want to sincerely thank you for considering us and giving us the chance to fulfill our dream of building a family of our own.

Gratefully yours,
Jeromy and Michael

Because of you, we may be able to fulfill our dreams of becoming parents.

About Us

We originally connected online while we were both living in Chicago. We decided to meet in person during a snowstorm, and eight years later, the rest is history. We lived together there for three years before moving back to Michael’s hometown in Kentucky. This allowed us to be much closer to Michael’s family and significantly closer to Jeromy’s. Michael is a financial advisor, and Jeromy owns his own interior decorating firm. We love to travel, and in our spare time, we enjoy designing and renovating homes. We try to make dinner together every night, typically singing and dancing the entire time. Most of all, we get a kick out of making those around us laugh

Our Home & Pets

We have two dogs, Parker and Eva, that we adore. They love people and are great with children.
We have a two-story traditional home with four bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a massive yard to play in. It is very sentimental to us. It was built by Michael’s “MeeMaw,” and she raised Michael’s mother there. Michael was there often as a child, and when we moved back, it became a staple of Jeromy’s life as well. After her tragic passing, we were honored to buy it and renovate it into our dream home. Our neighborhood is incredibly kid friendly with children of all ages. We get together regularly and have events like Movie Night, ice cream socials, and holiday horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Our Extended Family

We both come from large families. Michael's mother's side has three uncles and one aunt and two uncles on his father’s side. Each of them had at least three children, and most of them now have children of their own, totaling over 100 aunts, uncles, cousins, spouses, partners, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren!

We go to Michael’s parents’ home every Sunday for family dinner. We all get together regularly, so any children we may be blessed with will be well connected to their new extended family, especially since Michael’s family loves to celebrate at our home, continuing over 60 years of traditions shared here.

Our baby will be very well connected to Jeromy’s side of the family as well. We try to make it back often where he grew up in a small village in Illinois. Jeromy’s mother is one of nine, while his father and stepmother are both one of four. He spent a great deal of time with his grandmother. She was a pillar of the local church and community, and he loved her very much! He speaks to his two sisters, mother, stepmother, and aunt almost daily.

What Led Us To Adoption

Since the beginning of our relationship, we have talked about what it will be like when we have children. We talk about how exciting it will be to play catch, eat grilled cheese, and share a life with a child. We have both had incredible relationships with our families and continue to have those strong bonds now. We want to expand and continue those ties with a family of our own, and we believe adoption is the best way for us to do so. We are both beyond excited at the possibility of raising a child with the same unconditional love and support we received growing up.
