Jason & Joanne
Why we want to be parents:
The thought of providing a child with a loving and nurturing environment filled with encouragement and opportunity has been a dream of ours. We haven’t been able to do so biologically and believe God has planned for us to adopt a beautiful child into our family. Being able to shape the life of a little one, encouraging dreams, building hopes, and instilling important family values including kindness, honesty, faith in God, confidence and strength are some of the things we’re excited to teach a child.
What activities we look forward to doing with a child:
We’re looking forward to sharing all aspects of our life with a child, and we’re excited to build traditions and create amazing memories together. We’re excited to laugh together during family game nights, cuddle up and enjoy popcorn on family movie nights, celebrate birthdays and holidays, travel the world together, build snowmen, play sports together, and family picnics and barbecues.
The people/pets who make up our family:
Our immediate family consists of the two of us, and no pets. We’re both close with our parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and a great group of friends who are looking forward to welcoming a child into our loving circle of support.
Our ethnic/cultural background:
Jason is part Welsh and German and Joanne is Middle Eastern.

One thing we would like the birth family to know about us/why we would be good parents:
Together, we have a very strong relationship built upon love, trust, and respect for one another. We want you to know this child will be loved with all our hearts and will be enveloped in the warmth and support we have already built within our home and throughout our extended community of family and friends. We promise to give this child every opportunity we can to fulfill his or her hopes and dreams and will always be there to support and encourage him or her to explore and learn in an accepting and positive environment.
