Thank you for taking this moment to get to know our family. Considering adoption for your child is
the most selfless expression of love we could imagine, and we thank you for including us in this sacred space. We are praying for you – that you would be filled with a peace that surpasses understanding, that you would be gifted with wisdom, and that you would know God has joy ahead, for you and your child. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
We love a perfect winter day, especially Jacquelyn who grew up in warmer climates dreaming of a white Christmas.
One of the best parts of living in Colorado is waking up to a blanket of crisp, white snow glistening in the bright sunshine. Our house is directly across the street from a small park. It has the perfect sledding hill and neighborhood friends are always out there to enjoy the fresh powder.
JJ is our cautious firstborn so he was afraid to try sledding at first, until his sister helped him be brave. Ella is fearless so she couldn’t wait to go for the first time. On the first snowy day of the season, we pulled Ella down the hill and when she got to the bottom she said, “Come on, JJ!” After that, he built up the courage to try it and quickly found out he loved it, too.
Adoption is at the core of our family. When Jacquelyn was six-years-old her father passed away. When she was nine years old, her mom remarried and Jacquelyn was adopted by her stepdad. She also got a “bonus” brother and sister as part of her blended family, which later meant bonus nieces and
nephews, too. One of the sweetest things to watch is how close the cousins have become, despite the fact they’re not biologically related. Hailey and Hannah were born three months apart and have been best friends for 14 years since then. They had no idea they weren’t biological cousins until they were about 10 years old, and when they found out they didn’t care at all. Your child will be raised in a tribe that knows family is built on love, not DNA.
We see you as a key part of your child’s story. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you and begin what we hope will be a lifelong relationship. We believe a child can never have too many people in their
lives who love them, and having a meaningful connection with you will be integral for their emotional health, as well as yours. If you are comfortable with it, we would love for you to be in your child’s life through phone calls and visits through the years.
Thank you for taking this time to learn about us. May God bless you and keep you, may his face shine upon you, and may He be gracious to you
