dear expectant mother

Thank you for considering us. Words cannot express our gratitude that you may pick us to raise your son or daughter. Somehow fate brought us to you, and we intend to give your child the life we could all only hope for one day. Our nursery is ready to have your little one call it home, and we cannot wait to read bedtime stories at all hours of the night.

We know our pups are going to protect him or her from the minute we bring him or her home. We will make sure your child is raised in the healthiest and safest environment possible. We will always keep your son or daughter safe as we have advanced infant and toddler training. We can’t wait to be their coach and put them on our shoulders for a victory lap with some celebratory ice creams. We can picture roasting marshmallows around our fire pit and telling stories in the backyard already.

We will show your baby the world through traveling, museums, and books. We will be sure to raise your baby within the “fire family” and take frequent rides in the firetruck. We will instill the values of charity, diversity, and cultural awareness. Most of all, we cannot wait to tell your son or daughter about you and how selfless you were to make the decision to allow us to raise him or her.

About Us

Tiffany is a neonatal nurse practitioner who works in the baby ICU and is specialized with all types of infant medical problems. Tiffany has traveled both within the U.S. and on medical mission trips to help infants and families have a second chance at life. Jenna is a firefighter lieutenant who has also dedicated her life to helping the public and keeping people safe. She is also a fire instructor who teaches new candidates at the fire academy. Lastly, following the fire department’s spirit of giving back to the community, Jenna created a charity for cancer that is held annually; it has touched the lives of many! Our love has no boundaries, and we will always lend a hand. If we are blessed to be picked by you, we can ensure a home of love, charity, strength, and selflessness.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a neighborhood with tons of kids playing and riding bikes on the sidewalks. We have a fenced yard with plenty of grass to run and play in and an area where we are already envisioning a swing set. This nursery is right next to our bedroom with a rocker for those middle-of-the-night feedings. We are passionate about our home gym and garden to ensure a healthy lifestyle. Our neighborhood has a children's sprinkler park and amusement park. We frequently go for long bike rides and runs through our nearby forest preserve and can't wait to attach a little infant trailer to the bike and break out the running stroller so your baby gets to look around at all the trees and enjoy the fresh air.

Our Extended Family

Our family is extremely important and close to us. Our parents moved six minutes around the corner from us and are already collecting everything possible to be the ultimate grandparents to your son or daughter. We have one sister and brother-in-law who are excited to be an active aunt and uncle in your baby’s life. Our extended family lives mostly within 20 minutes from us, so getting together for family events and holidays is always important to us.

We are so excited to introduce your baby to our Christmas traditions of family, decorating, baking cookies, playing games, and going sledding. We are also excited to show your baby the ocean as the grandparents have a second home on the water where we will introduce your baby to boating and watersports. Our families are also die-hard Chicago sports fanatics, and we will be sure to have your son or daughter grow up at various sporting events!

The neighbor kids love to decorate our driveway with sidewalk chalk and love our huge Halloween displays every year. We cannot wait to have matching costumes with your son or daughter as Halloween is one of our favorite holidays.

What Led Us To Adoption

When we first met, we both knew from the start we wanted a family and always knew we would adopt. We bought a five-bedroom home when we got married and knew we would fill it with love, dogs, and children. Several of our coworkers have had successful adoptions of both infants and older children, and their success stories are an inspiration to us that our dreams can come true. Several firefighter families speak openly with their children about being adopted and have been great advocates and support people to us of how to support the needs and desires of a potential adoptive child.
