Hi, we're Mark & Jennifer
Dear Expectant Mother,

Through your bravery and selfless act of creating an adoption plan, we know you are making this decision because you want to do what is best for your child. It is such an incredible act of love and sacrifice to create this plan for your child and we would love to be part of your plan. We look forward to developing a relationship with you.

We connected instantly over our love of animals, Food Network cooking shows, and of course, basketball!
Our story begins with a neighborhood game of basketball and Jennifer's wonderful matchmaking Uncle Steve! He introduced us and we talked for hours. We connected instantly over our love of animals, Food Network cooking shows, and of course, basketball! We began dating shortly after meeting and the rest is history! Mark proposed in September 2008. The evening began with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory and ended with a starry night stroll on a Waterway. Just as Mark proposed to Jennifer, a boat full of people shouted "Congratulations!" as they sailed by on the Waterway. Talk about perfect timing! It was a wonderful memory that we will carry with us always! We were married on June 27, 2009 in League City, Texas on a beautiful yacht. It was a wonderful day full of love and celebration with our family and friends. Our loved ones often tell us that it was a very unique wedding and how much they enjoyed sailing the evening away along the bay!

A little about Mark by Jennifer
He works very hard for his family, and he is always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.
Mark is my best friend and an amazing husband! He is the most patient and kindhearted person I have ever known, and he has always been a great support system for me. He is amazing with our nephews, and it warms my heart to watch him run around and play with them. One of our nephews even calls him "Captain America!" I really admire how Mark finds ways to help others in the community. He is very involved in the Rotary Club and the Chamber of Commerce and is involved in many community service projects throughout the year. I have been so blessed to call Mark my husband. He works very hard for his family, and he is always there to lend a helping hand to anyone in need.

A little about Jennifer by Mark
Jennifer has a big heart, and it especially shows in her love of animals.
Jennifer is the most kind hearted and loving person I have ever met. She gives of herself selflessly, and is thoughtful, nurturing and kind. Jennifer has a big heart, and it especially shows in her love of animals. If she had the means, our yard would turn into a zoo! Jennifer has been an amazing partner in life. She is always supportive of me, and wants the best for our family. Jennifer won't even think twice about sacrificing things for herself for the benefit of her family. I know she's going to be the best mom. I've been truly blessed to not only have Jennifer as my wife, but as my best friend and partner in life, and I can't wait to see her as a mom to our child. We want to thank you so much again for taking the time to learn a little about our lives. We want you to know how absolutely amazing and brave you are. We admire your strength and courage! With love, Jennifer and Mark
