|More About Our Family
|Our Son's Adoption|
We are very blessed to have adopted our son, Henry, 4 years ago. From the first time we met him at just 12 hours old, we fell madly in love with him! Watching him grow into the spunky 4-year-old he is has been an absolute joy for us, and we can't wait to watch him become a big brother. We have an open adoption with both of his birth parents, and are open to doing the same with you and your child!
Jennifer was born and raised in the Catholic faith and has received her Sacraments. Although Matt was not raised in a religious family, it has always been our desire to raise our children in the Catholic Church, and attend Mass together as a family. We both appreciate the morals and sense of community and family that the Catholic Church instills. Our son was Baptized in the church as a baby, alongside his cousin... a pretty special day for our family!
|Our Musical Interest|
We both enjoy a wide variety of music and love to see live concerts, shows, and Broadway plays when we are able. Matt played trumpet in middle school, and Jen played clarinet and took piano lessons for 11 years. We always have music playing in our house and like to encourage Henry to make the next song selection. We hope to get a piano for our home someday and are looking forward to sharing our love of music with our children.
|About Our Home and Neighborhood|
Our home has a cozy, inviting feel, and we are having fun slowly making improvements. Last year, we had hardwood floors installed downstairs, and all the tan walls painted a bright, happy white. We love our quiet little neighborhood full of amazing neighbors and lots of kids. They are all so supportive and excited to watch our family grow! We often have get-together's with our neighbors during the summer, and even celebrated the 4th of July with a block party. Our home is located in a great school district, with the school bus stop just right down the street.
|We live in the state of...|
Washington! We moved here 8 years ago, with the thought that we could always move back to California if we didn't like it... but we LOVE it here! It is always so green, with beautiful mountain or river views in any direction. We're located not far from the city, coast, and mountains, so the options for adventure are endless.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
Newborn to 3 months
We would love either! Henry is very excited to have a baby brother or sister!
|Ethnicity of Child||Caucasian, African American, Hispanic, Native American, Hispanic/Caucasian, Hispanic/African American, African American/Caucasian|
|Future Contact with Birth Family|
We are open to any level of future contact that you are most comfortable with. We currently have an open adoption with our son's birth mother and birth father, including photos, texts, and visits.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family, and for considering us as parents for your child. We are so excited to welcome your child into our family, and into our hearts. Your child will grow up in a loving home, and will always know that he or she was adopted out of love. We are open to discussing the amount of future contact that you are hoping for!
