Hi Friend!

Our Family
We sincerely thank you for taking the time to read about our family and for considering us in your decision! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for choosing to make the most selfless decision that anyone can make and choosing life! We have so much admiration for you!

We are a fun-loving couple with a genuine love for life! Our greatest joy in life is parenting. We have learned to never take a day for granted. Life is short, and we are determined to make our journey a fun one! Our journey to have children has been very tough, but we are not ready to give up on our dream to have a big family and to follow our hearts in adoption! We can’t help but think that we are meant to be parents to one more little blessing!! Our daughters pray for another brother or sister every day, alongside us.

We feel deep in our hearts that the child meant for us is out there, and we pray for the day we get to meet this great gift!

We have been blessed with 2 beautiful daughters, but we have SO MUCH more love to give. We have always felt a calling to adopt, and we pray for the day we get to complete our family! Parenting our 6-year old daughter Chandler and our 2 and 1/2 old daughter Kendall is the MOST marvelous gift and we can’t wait to experience the pure joy of adding to our family again. Our family has been formed through the miracles of both adoption and a complicated pregnancy of our own, and we are so very thankful for the journey that has led us to where we are right now!

Our oldest daughter Chandler just loves the role of big sister. She is sweet, well-mannered, funny, and bright. Chandler goes to kindergarten this year and loves it. She is a great helper and it’s been amazing for us to see the love she has for her little sister and how nurturing she is as a big sister. She truly loves kids and babies!! Our youngest, Kendall, is a laid back, happy little girl that loves to give tons of hugs and kisses (especially to her baby cousins). She comes to life around other kids and is quite the social little gal, even at her young little age!

We have a very close-knit family that is there for us and always ready to help. We are both blessed with parents that love to be around and spend time with their grandchildren whenever they can. There are a total of 11 cousins (and more on the way) between both sides of our families, with 10 of them under the age of 6! We love having all the kids around and big family gatherings. We can't wait to one day introduce our NEW baby (or young one!) to our family and watch everyone love on he or she so much!!!

As a family, we love to be outside, travel, and spend time at the lake. Jon and I are both kids at heart and cherish these young years with our kids. We live in a culdesac in a nice neighborhood that is full of young families and children. We have neighborhood pool parties, birthday celebrations, and there are always kids around to play with. Some of our best friends live within a block of us. The town we live in is where Jon was born and raised, a nice town of about 40,000 people that includes most of the amenities of a bigger city, yet the perks of a smaller community. It’s a fun, family-friendly town with many things to do. We have an amazing network all around us that includes extended family, friends, and neighbors!!
Such a great daddy!!!

A Little More About Jon . . .

Jon works for a premier pharmaceutical company as an Executive Pharmaceutical Salesman. His career allows him much flexibility and we are fortunate he is able to be home by dinnertime! He loves to golf, play baseball, entertain our friends and family, play backyard games, and do pretty much anything outdoors. The girls love Jon for his silly side and for always making them laugh.

The girls love Jon for his silly side and for always making them laugh. He is truly a “hands-on” dad and is the guy at family gatherings that is right in the middle of all of the kids!! He can't wait to spoil another little one!

He is truly a “hands-on” dad and is the guy at family gatherings that is right in the middle of all of the kids. As a father, he will be the dad coaching little league, helping at dance recitals, and very involved in whatever it is his children love!

Jon grew up spending lots of time outdoors with his family, active in church, playing sports, and surrounded by lots of other children . We are very close with Jon’s family and enjoy having most of them just minutes away. Jon’s father is a retired elementary school principal (after 35 years) and his mother is our daycare provider - her career for over 30 years. We are blessed to have Jon’s mom be able to watch our kids when Amy is working. The girls love their time with Grandma at daycare with their cousins and the other children, and its incredible to see how much they learn in that environment and being around all the other children. Both of Jon’s siblings live near and have small children as well and we have a blast getting all of the kids together frequently!

More about Jon by Amy:

Jon is a one-in-a-million kind of dad. This is what he was meant to do! Its hard to put into words. He absolutely ADORES kids and has such a special and unique way of connecting with them. Kids adore him. I am so thankful our girls get to have him as a daddy, and I know that their special relationship will last forever. He is the funny, make-them-giggle kind of dad . . but he is also the dad that is there for the tough times. He has a soft heart and a love for our children that is unexplainable. I can't wait to see him get to be "daddy" to another child!

A Little More About Amy . . .

Amy grew up in a Nebraska town of 20,000 people and her childhood included lots of FUN, in the form of family gatherings, church, school, sports, and dance. Some of Amy’s favorite memories as a child were weekend trips to visit her grandparents’ farm, where she loved getting to “be a kid” and explore the outdoors on a farm. Amy’s mom is less than 2 hours away and visits us often! She is a very fun Grandma (the girls adore her) and is so supportive, helpful, and involved in our lives.

Amy is a natural at motherhood and I love watching her as a mother. She really has one of the kindest hearts of anyone I’ve ever met. She loves children so much, and prays every day to add to our family.

Amy experienced a tough year last year losing her father to cancer at the young age of 62. Faith and family have certainly gotten her family through this time and Amy, her mom, and her sister are closer than ever. Amy has one sister that also lives close and is married with 3 children under 5! We’ve enjoyed having children the same age and look forward to all of the memories we will make through the years as they grow!

More about Amy by Jon:

Amy has a Master’s Degree in Business & Accounting and until becoming a mother, had an accomplished career as a CPA and VP in Finance. We always knew Amy’s career take a “backseat” as soon as we became parents. Motherhood has always been Amy’s top priority and she’s loved working less and spending more time at home with the girls. Amy is a natural at motherhood and its pretty remarkable to watch her as a mother. She really has one of the kindest hearts of anyone I’ve ever met. She is one of those people that puts others’ needs before her own. She has fought hard to have a family. Its incredible to see how kids light her up and how being a mother brings her so much happiness. One of my favorite things is watching her and the girls have their "dance parties" . . where they crank the music and just have fun. Having fun and being silly comes so easy to her.
Date night!
