"My wife and I have known Jordan and David for a long time now, since we served with them in Peace Corps . Jordan and David are warm, funny, and caring people, and since the very beginning we've considered them to be some of our closest and most dependable friends. We were there to see Jordan and David fall in love, get married, and grow their love into a strong and healthy marriage. They are responsible, intelligent, adventurous, and open-minded, and we have no doubt that they would make the best of parents. Any child of theirs would be loved, nurtured, and given all of the opportunities to grow up to be a healthy and happy adult."

"In the five years that I've known David and his wife Jordan, I have been inspired by their empathy, commitment to family, and overall kindness. While studying with David at George Mason University, I could always count on him for insightful dialogue and often reached out to him when things got stressful. In addition to his constructive advice, David's sense of humor has always warmed the spirits of those around him. I recall David's consistent efforts to bring classmates together and organize informal gatherings where we could bond and get to know each other outside of class. David always ensured that our gatherings were diverse and inclusive, which made the experiences that much more enriching. Thanks to David, these were some of my most formative experiences in grad school. As a fiancee to a single mom, I cannot think of a better couple to adopt and raise a child. As I have in the past, I will seek David's consultation as a Father and have the utmost confidence that he and his wife Jordan will continue to inspire and bring joy to their new son or daughter. "

"My wife Leila and I have a young child with one on the way, so I have a unique perspective on how Jordan and David relate to young children. Our daughter Shaida is almost two now, and Jordan and David have been there with her since the very beginning. I have seen how patient, gentle, and caring they are with very small babies and how fun, loving, and energetic they are with toddlers. Every time we see them, Shaida naturally gravitates towards them. When we recently had a family picnic near the Potomac, David spent the entire time running and playing catch with Shaida. It is not always easy to keep up with a toddler (and keep them engaged) but David was a natural. And in a recent family party, Jordan was attached to Shaida. The party was in a tiny room, but Jordan found endless ways to keep Shaida entertained--from teaching her colors from the paintings on the walls to making Shaida laugh with silly dancing. Bottom line: I know that Jordan and David are going to be amazing parents just from watching the way they have been with Shaida. Any child would be lucky to join their loving home. "

"I have known Jordan for a little under 3 years and David about 2, and I have never met a more genuine and kind couple. Their warmth, humor, and intellect make them magnets for great friends and interesting conversations. Everyone loves them individually and as a couple. They both manage to strike the perfect balance between being fun and energetic while also being really down-to-earth and good listeners. When I started my job in DC, I met Jordan and was immediately blown away by how organized and professional she is - all while being nice and warm to everyone. Jordan is one of the most thoughtful people I know, and I know I can always count on her to remember small details about my life (and the lives of all of her friends, family, and co-workers). Jordan is so nurturing and inclusive; I have never met anyone that hasn't been impressed by how she loves those around her. She and David truly care about the people in their lives, and it is amazing to watch how they bring people together. They are the best!"

"I have known Jordan for 12 years and David for 6 years and I am confident that they will be attentive, loving and nurturing parents. Jordan and David exhibit these traits when they interact with my nearly two year old daughter. As soon as we see them, they immediately get on her level and excitedly play with her, which has made her adore spending time with them. They are incredibly patient and listen to what she says (even through the toddler babble) and come up with creative ways to play with her. At the last family gathering, they initiated a dance party with her, then patiently explained all the scenes in the paintings in the restaurant we were in to help keep her entertained. They are also very attentive and always make sure that she is safe and well cared for in their company. I am confident that they will do the same, and much more, for their own children one day. "

"What has most awed me since I first met Jordan over three years ago has been her kindness, compassion, strength, and humility. It came as no surprise when I learned early on in our friendship that she has always wanted to adopt, and that this was one of the first things her and her husband learned they had in common early on in their relationship - when they were volunteers living in another country. Personal experiences allow me to say, without a doubt, that Jordan and David can offer a child a most solid parental foundation. It's not just that they have a strong partnership, that they are good people with strong core values of service, that they are able to recognize their privileges and seek to empower others, or that they have a giant heart for humanity; it's that they are also intelligent, hardworking, and devoted to making their dream of adoption a reality. They don't think it's easy nor expect it to be, but their commitment to provide and LOVE a tiny human unconditionally while also growing, learning, and receiving love back -- that dream far outweighs the difficulties they know will come with parenting. Over the past few years they have taken steps to set themselves up to make sure they have the space, the support of family and loved ones (as they have family members who have also previously adopted), and they have even made career decisions in the pursuit of being able to provide for a child's needs (not just financially, but emotionally and educationally). In them, a child will be blessed to have more than stability, but also role models and a loving, welcoming web of extended family that may just shape a great human being. Needless to say, I am so happy and so honored to vouch for them. I hope this dream comes true soon. It will be a blessing to so many lives, and the blessing they have hoped for since first meeting each other. "

"I strongly recommend Jordan and David as adoptive parents! They are a kind, caring, and generous couple with SO much love to give!!!"

"David and Jordan would serve as ideal adoptive parents for a young child. I have had the privilege to know David for twelve years. He is a truly selfless person who is genuinely and consistency interested in the well-being of others--from the many members of his close-knit family to the numerous friends from his collegiate, volunteer, and public service experiences. As the son of two university professors, David has an intellect and awareness that is often reserved for much older individuals. It is not difficult to imagine David reading books with his son or daughter nightly; likewise, it is easy to imagine David challenging his son or daughter to think about those books in new or creative ways. In short, he is a kind, patient, and thoughtful person who would serve as an ideal father. In addition, I have had the good fortune to know Jordan for five years. She is an inspiring individual who perfectly complements David's passion for serving and assisting others. In particular, Jordan applies a truly admirable degree of care, diligence, and thoughtfulness to each and every endeavor that she pursues--from graduate study to marathon training. It is not difficult to imagine Jordan working closely with her son or daughter to solve a difficult homework problem or patiently teaching her son or daughter how to bake cookies for an upcoming family holiday gathering. In short, Jordan is a caring, responsible, and intelligent person who would serve as an exceptional mother. As a couple, David and Jordan maintain a loving relationship that will provide a strong foundation for their future family. They are both humble individuals who are willing to acknowledge personal limitations and pursue individual improvement. Moreover, they are cooperative and collaborative partners who constructively work together to solve problems. Finally, as a testament to their kindness and generosity, they have built a wide network of family and friends that will undoubtedly support them as they build their family together."

"Jordan and David are an amazing couple that are ready to share their lives with a child and give him or her all the love the child needs to be in a caring environment. As a foreigner in the US, I have experienced the kindness of this couple and most importantly, their willingness to make me feel at home when I am around them. Their values demonstrate how they respect diverse cultures and how they are interested in understanding other points of view and put love and respect above all things. I believe that a child would be very lucky to have parents like Jordan and David in his or her life."

"Jordan and David are going to be exceptional parents. As Jordan's younger brother, I have been the focus of much of her nurturing nature for my entire life. She often doted on me. Photos of us as kids show her holding my hand and our mom shares stories of her calling me "Jordan's baby" when we were young. I looked up to her my whole life, and our relationship adapted as we grew and changed. When we were very little, I would take my cues from Jordan when we played games or sang songs. As teenagers, she paved the way for me to be a successful student. As adults, I look to her for guidance on topics like relationships, career, and family. All the while, she has looked out for me, even when we lived on separate continents. Now, it is time for her to channel that care towards a child. Jordan will be a great mom. Her heart is solid gold and she is always thinking of others. I know that she will work each and every day to create the best life for her son/daughter. David is her puzzle piece and will complement her approach each step of the way. Together, I am absolutely confident that they will create the sort of environment that any child would love to grow up in. "

"You won't find a kinder, more loving couple than David and Jordan! Two years ago, I had to get all four of my wisdom teeth removed. David and Jordan could sense how worried I was, so they put together a care package full of easy-to-eat food, magazines, candles, and all kind of other things that would keep me calm, comfortable, and entertained while recovering. This is a perfect example of the kind of people they are -- nurturing, thoughtful, and always pro-actively going out of their way to take care of loved ones. From their focus on health (Jordan is well known in our family for "accidentally" running 18 miles once -- we all wish we had her endurance!) to their love of learning (both David and Jordan have masters degrees, and enjoy learning new languages), David and Jordan will make sure that their child is not just deeply loved and nurtured, but is taught the value of self-care for both the body and mind. David and Jordan are also part of two families that -- since their marriage -- have come together as one family. As David's little sister, I can say that Jordan's siblings are just as much my siblings as my own two brothers. Our family doubled when David married Jordan, and now we're all so, so excited to welcome a beautiful baby into the family as well. This baby will be surrounded by love, not just from David and Jordan, but from all of his or her new uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandparents. I can't imagine two people who will love and care for a child more than David and Jordan, and I can't wait to meet my little niece or nephew! "

"David is my older brother and I have known him for 29 years. From the time we were children David and I have been best friends. I see in my brother the virtues that consider to be most valuable. David is courageous and stands by his convictions, He is trustworthy and can be depended on, He is kind and patient and gives good advice. I have been a firefighter my whole adult life. In my job we value courage and honor above all else. I can think of nobody who embodies those values better then my older brother. When I met Jordan for the first time I knew that I would get along well with her. She is smart and thoughtful and has a kindness in the way she talks to people. Her energy and intellect are obvious from the very moment you meet her. I have always felt that no matter what problem you are dealing with, you would want Jordan to be there with you, her bond to her family is very strong. Together my brother and his wife are fun! My wife and I always looks forward to spending time with them. They always have a new board game to play or a trip they have planned to pick apples or some other random activity. They are two of the best people I know and I consider myself very lucky to have such strong and kind people in my life. They have so much love to give and would be great parents to a child. Best regards -Peter"

"I've known Jordan since middle school and chose to live in the same room as her all 4 years of college. I met my husband at Jordan and David's wedding (David's brother), and we have been happily married for 3 years now. There is no doubt in my mind that if we had kids and something were to happen to us Jordan and David would be our number one choice to take over for us as parents. We have talked so many times of all the ways our kids will grow up together, the family trips we will take, the things we will teach them. Jordan and David are sweet, responsible, thoughtful, fun people with an incredibly strong sense of family, and I have no doubt that any kid that grew up around them would grow up to be a fantastic human being.

"I am very excited about becoming a grandparent to Jordan and David's child. They are amazing individuals, great sense of humor, very responsible and just an overall great couple. I am proud to call them not only my children, but my friends. We live about 50 miles south of DC and my husband and I are both retired. I was a math teacher and am very excited about being very involved in my grandchild's life. I already have a room in the basement with all the toys my 4 children had and all their books ready for a new child to join the family. Please consider Jordan and David for your child's forever family. "
