About us & why we chose adoption
Jared has had experience helping in orphanages during mission trips and this sparked his dream of adoption.
We’re thrilled to be starting our adoption journey. We’ve been married for 7 years and together for 14. We have a daughter, Mia, and can’t wait to add another child to our family. Mia is very sweet and social and loves caring for her babies and stuffed animals. We know she’ll be an amazing big sister. In addition to spending time with our daughter, we love being with family and friends, traveling and being outdoors. Whether it be visiting new parks, zoos or annual beach vacations we love being together and active. We both work in the medical field and have a great deal of experience with children. Adoption is something we’ve dreamed of for years. Jared has had experience helping in orphanages during mission trips and this sparked his dream of adoption. We also have nieces and nephews that were adopted and they were part of our family long before we met them in person. We always discussed having one biological child and adopting a second child. We had a great deal of difficulty becoming pregnant with our daughter and when it came to seek fertility treatments again or proceed with adoption for a second child, it was an easy choice. We really feel adoption is meant for us. We have an incredible support system of family and friends. Our family is more than ready to welcome another child!

About Anna by Jared
Family dinners together at the dining table are incredibly important to Anna as well as little adventures and traveling to new places.
Anna initially captivated me with her personality and beauty. I was out with friends when I first saw her walk by. I'm so glad I made a point to talk to her. We haven't spent much time apart since. She is hard working and very dependable. Anna is our family's anchor and an incredible mother to Mia. She loves playing with Mia and teaching her new things. Mia always wants to do what Anna is doing. Family dinners together at the dining table are incredibly important to Anna as well as little adventures and traveling to new places. She always remembers everyone's birthday and goes out of her way to do something to make them feel special. Anna is compassionate and always wants to help those in need. She keeps us organized and makes sure nothing is forgotten. It's no surprise she loves being a mother and is amazing at it. Mia and I are lucky to have her!

He loves to socialize, stay busy and learn new things. Whether it's testing a new recipe, teaching Mia how to ride a bike, working in the yard or building something, he'll always find something to keep him busy. He's the family comic and keeps Mia and I entertained. I truly cannot imagine a better father for Mia and a better spouse for me!
