We met each other 8 years ago, when we had both started working at a movie theater. We became friends, but then just over a year later, Jade moved away to go to college in Oregon. After having lost touch with each other for about a year, we started to talk via Facebook and on the phone.
We have a very strong support system; our family and friends. We're so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives.
Soon after, Will started to ride the bus all the way to Oregon State University just to visit. The rest is history. We couldn’t stay away from each other and fell in love. In 2014, we had the other love of our life- our son Cooper.
We love having dinner and game nights with family and friends. We also like taking small family trips to California and Nevada. Jade loves getting lost in a good book and taking long walks. Will loves cheering on the Seattle Mariners and Seahawks.
Education is very important to our family. While Jade was pregnant with Cooper, Will went to school and worked full-time. When Jade decided to go back to school, Will did an amazing job at supporting their family. Now Jade is a middle school math teacher, a job that she loves with all of her heart. Since we both grew up in lower-income families, we're very proud to say that we are able to raise our children in a life that is better than what we had. We're also proud to say that we have a very strong support system; our family and friends. We're so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives who will fall head-over-heels with the baby we welcome into our family.
