We are Bekah and Jeremy and we are so excited to grow our family through adopting an infant. We have always had a heart for children and we cannot wait to begin our family through adoption. We are ready to provide for and love a child unconditionally and are trusting that God will build our family in His perfect timing.
We are ready to provide for and love a child unconditionally and are trusting that God will build our family in His perfect timing...no matter what our children are passionate about, we will be there to support them and be their biggest cheerleaders.
We met in high school and have been married for almost four years. We are originally from Massachusetts and we moved to Richmond, VA in 2015 to escape the crazy winters up north. We love Richmond and couldn’t imagine ourselves anywhere else. We love to stay active spending time outdoors hiking, running or walking around the city. We enjoy hosting dinners and game nights with friends and family.
We are fortunate to have the support of family and friends, all of whom have embraced our plans to adopt. Our hope is to have an open adoption because we understand that a child's birth parents are an important part of who they are.
Since moving to Richmond, we have become good friends with people through work and church. These friendships have made the transition to a new city so much easier and have helped us feel like Richmond is home. We are plugged into our church through Sunday morning services and our small group community. In addition to our amazing and wonderful family, we feel that we have found another family through our church. We know that our kids will not only be loved and taken care of by us and our families but by our entire church family as well. Our church has even devoted their resources specifically to support families built through adoption or foster care. We volunteer with a couple local organizations mentoring high school students and helping families at local hospitals.
Education is extremely important to us and our children’s education will always be one of our top priorities. We both have received Master’s degrees which has afforded us stable jobs and ultimately put us in a place financially to provide for a child or children. Seeing the value of a strong education in our own lives encourages us to be supportive of our future children in school and provide them with the best education possible. We look forward to advocating for them to pursue their dreams and help them achieve their education and career goals as best we can.
We cannot wait to see what our kids grow up to love and take interest in outside of education. We both grew up playing sports, which were not only fun but also provided amazing relationships and a sense of community that we still cherish today. Bekah grew up playing the piano and we have recently started painting for fun so no matter what our children are passionate about, we will be there to support them and be their biggest cheerleaders.
A typical weekend for us includes exercising, making food together, playing games, and exploring Richmond. In the fall, you can find us cheering on the Patriots Sunday afternoons with a home filled of family, friends and lots of food. We cannot wait to add a child and to experience life with them (and dress them up in Boston sports gear). We can imagine going on family walks down by the James River, enjoying family meals together, going on fun family vacations, taking our children to the Richmond Children’s Museum or to Flying Squirrels Baseball Games, and simply providing for, loving, and supporting our children no matter what. We are so excited to become parents!
