Hi! We're Jamie, John, Sam and Jack. We hope this glimpse into our little family helps you to see how much we love and cherish our children, and value the open relationships we share with their birth parents. We pray you're receiving the love and support you need during this time, and that your path may be filled with peace as you make choices for your sweet little one.
Our relationship began in an unconventional way by meeting at the grocery store! March 2020 marked 14 happy years together. As a couple we spent our time together traveling and enjoyed exploring nature. We loved our "us time," but knew life could be so much sweeter with little ones. From the beginning we knew we wanted a large family, but our journey to grow began with news that we would never have biological children. We were heartbroken, but knew it didn't matter how our children came to us. For us, love was all we needed to be a family.
Jamie was raised in New England and taught third grade before choosing to stay home with our boys. She loves all things horses, Yoga, playing the guitar, and soaking up sun on the beach.
In John's words: “Jamie is the love of my life and truly a perfect fit for me. She has a warm, assertive personality and is not afraid to stand up for what she believes is right. She has many attractive qualities, but what strikes me the most is how she is with our children; she is an amazing mother. It is common to see her take a break from her daily household tasks to spend ‘special time’ with our boys. She makes them the center of her life, and they know it. She is loving and patient as a mother, and the boys can feel her love for them. I happily look forward to spending my life with her and all of our children."
John was raised in Missouri and spent eight years in the Air Force. He works from home in computer security and loves to bike, fish and camp, and is a big Chiefs fan.
In Jamie's word: “I was first attracted to John's confidence and sense of humor. John has the ability to bring energy and laughter into any situation, and our home is full of happiness because of him. He adores his children, and spends much of his free time playing with his sons. They love to wrestle, and both Sam and Jack are always looking for a reason to sneak down to John's office during the work day to see their Daddy. John is a warm and patient father, and a loving spouse and provider. His work ethic has blessed our family so that I am able to stay home with our children. The life we have made together, while not without its ups and downs, has been beautiful and fulfilling. We plan to grow old and gray together."
Meet Sam and Jack
Sam, age 6, and Jack, age 3, were both adopted as infants. They are all boy, and our home is full of wrestling, trucks, trains, and dinosaurs. Sam loves being a big brother and is quick to protect and nurture Jack. He loves to teach him new ninja moves and correct his dinosaur names. Jack is our fearless toddler, a natural little fish and a ray of sunshine. He is quick to smile, all while stealing your snacks and cuddling in your lap. Both boys adore babies, and would love another brother to wrestle or a little sister to pamper and protect. We have a wonderful relationship with both Jack's birth mother and birth father, and hope to continue fostering that connection throughout his life.
As a family we love nature hikes and parks, local attractions like World's of Fun and Royal's baseball games, and traveling to the gorgeous Florida coast each year. We both come from very large families, the majority living close by. Sundays and Holidays are almost always spent with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Our time together is full of friendship and noise, and we find joy surrounding ourselves with family.
Our Home and Neighborhood
We love our neighborhood! Our 4-bedroom home is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac facing a walking trail and fish pond. We're surrounded by families with young children, which means our boys are never without a playmate, many who have become close friends. The neighborhood pool, elementary school, and library are all within walking distance. It's a perfect place to raise a family, and we consider it our forever home.
Our children are our first priority, and we can promise a home full of love and laughter. We are eager to develop and maintain a life-long connection between our children and their birth families. We understand how important that bond can be, and we promise to foster that relationship. We look forward to beginning this journey together.
