Jonathan & Jessica

Dear Birth Family,

Thank you for taking the time to meet our family!

Family is very important to us.  We both come from large families and have always wanted to become parents ourselves.  Before we married, we had planned to adopt someday, but we also thought we’d be having children biologically, too.  Even though things didn’t work out the way we expected, we are very excited to welcome a child to our family!

We want you to know that our hearts are full of respect and love for you.  We cannot begin to imagine how you feel as you make decisions for your child, but we want you to know that we hope to keep a close relationship with you so our child can know all of his or her parents and feel connected to their entire family.

Jonathan has 11 siblings and many nieces and nephews, and Jessica is the oldest of 6, so we both come from big families.  Although we make visits out west to see relatives as often as we can, we always have plenty of wonderful people to spend time with here in Virginia.  We have made many close friends here who have become like family to us.  We enjoy spend time with friends and having visitors in our home.  We especially love having family come stay with us so we can show them the Virginia sights.

We stay busy and love it!  We are very active in our church, which has a great children’s program with lots of activities for families.  Jonathan is a leader in the men’s group and Jessica has worked with the teenage girls and with the women’s group.  We spend a lot of time doing service projects and love meeting people through those projects. We love learning new things.  We visit historical sites, museums and if we see a sign on the highway and have a couple extra minutes, we will go see what’s there.  We love to travel and often add a few days to the trip so we can visit more interesting places!  We are excited to share our adventures with our children one day.

Jonathan is excited to become a father.  He plans to turn our garage into a workshop where he can teach our children to build and fix things, since that is something that he loves to do.  Fishing, camping and biking are other activities he wants to do as a family.  Jonathan is a favorite uncle because he is willing to wrestle, give horsey rides, or let his nieces give him a makeover.

Jessica is excited to become a mother.  She already works with children every day and loves playing games and doing crafts.  She looks forward to cooking together, going to the park, and hanging her children’s artwork all over the house.  She loves to crochet, sew, and try new recipes.  Jessica is very patient and is always willing to cuddle a child who needs some love.

We are so grateful that you would consider us to be adoptive parents for your child.  We would love to meet you and know that you will always be a special part of our lives, if that is your wish.  Adoption is a blessing for our family and we will treasure our child’s adoption story forever.

Thank you so much for reading a little bit about us.  May God bless you and keep you safe and well,

Jonathan and Jessica
