A Letter from Steve & Jasmina

Hello from California!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. As a couple, it has been our wish to expand our family and believe God has sent us on the path to adoption. We are loving, energetic, and fully committed to sharing the joys and blessings that exist in our lives with your child. We look forward to knowing more about you and your dreams for your child.

About Us

We have been married for ten years. Our relationship is built on love, trust, and respect for one another. We are the best of friends, and God is always at the forefront of our marriage. When we decided to expand our family,  we experienced infertility. We feel adoption is part of our family journey and are excited to begin that journey with you.

We enjoy spending time at home by working in the garden or playing ball with our dog, Harley. We take long walks around our neighborhood daily. We like to challenge ourselves by participating in marathons and city activities. We have an amazing support system with our friends and family. Our favorite things to do are cook and host dinners. We love to travel; each time picking new cities to explore and immerse ourselves in the culture. We are thrilled to share our lives and adventures with your child!

About Steve

I am truly blessed to have Steve as my partner in life. Steve is funny, outgoing, and has a loving heart. People genuinely gravitate to his personality. He is the person that can be left in a room full of people he does not know and leave with new friends. Steve is passionate about sports teams and takes pride in taking care of his health both physically and mentally. He is dedicated to his family and enjoys spending time with them. I see his interactions and quality time with our nieces and nephews, and I have no doubt that he will be an amazing father. He is thrilled to share his love for sports with our child.

About Jasmina

Jasmina is the love of my life and my true soulmate. After being together more than ten years, she continues to be a smart, funny, and a sensitive woman. Friends and family often seek advice because she is a great listener and has a way of empathizing with people’s needs. She is passionate in what she believes in and is always seeking ways to help others. It makes sense that Jasmina is a special education teacher. She is consistently seeking ways to help her students thrive not only academically but also connecting emotionally. Jasmina loves family and values family time. I have no doubt her love will transcend into motherhood.

Our Home in California

Our home is nestled near the San Gabriel Mountains in California. We live in a one-story house with three bedrooms. We have a big backyard where most of our time is spent. We host parties, play ball with our dog Harley, and play outdoor games. Our neighborhood is lively with children of all ages. We usually walk Harley in the evenings and see families walking and exercising. Our city is old and has a lot of city charm. It loves to host parades and festivals such as the lemon festival that we like to attend.

Our Family & Traditions

We are very blessed to have families that love each other, support each other, and really value family time. Our families get along very well and share in all the festivities from both sides. We come together for holidays, birthdays, as well as celebrating each other’s successes. Our families are primarily in California but there are sprinkles of aunts and uncles in Miami, Colorado, and Jasmina’s older sister lives in Austria, Vienna. We make sure to stay connected through face time, messaging, and visiting in person.

Our Promise

Our promise to you is that we will provide a home filled with unconditional love. A home where life is celebrated, and dreams and goals are supported. A safe place where one can express themselves and know that we will have their back. We promise to tap into their talents, ensuring they are living to full potential. We will lead by example teaching kindness and tolerance by exposing them to different places and cultures. We have a supportive and loving family ready to welcome this child with open arms. We will let them know where they came from, and we look forward to an open relationship through letters, pictures, and visits. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

We enjoy traveling. We love exploring new places particularly when the environment is completely different from ours. We enjoy learning about historical sites and the history of the people. We also enjoy eating new foods.

Hiking-
We enjoy hiking. There is something special about being outside with nature and viewing the trees, and the animals that live among nature. We love all types of hikes, including challenging ones that challenge the body and mind.

Hanging out at home- We enjoy staying home and enjoying each other's company. When we decide to stay home, we will cook together, play with our dog Harley in the back yard, and play cards or watch movies. This time is very special to us.

We both grew up in the Christian faith. It was very much apart of our home life. We went to private school, where the teachings and rituals of Christianity were practiced and enriched. Today, God continues to be at the center of our lives.
