While the day your baby is born would no doubt make our “Best Day Ever” list, we realize it could be one of the hardest days for you, and we do not take that lightly. Whether we seem like the right choice for you or not, we want to thank you for choosing this route, for your bravery to make such an enormous decision, and for giving people like us, and many others, the family they are yearning for.
If our profile speaks to you, please know your baby will be making our dreams come true. They’ll have so much love from us, our extended families and friends, and certainly their dog siblings, as they have no shortage of love and cuddles to give out! We have big plans for this baby to see as many places as we can offer, find all sorts of things to fall in love with, and grow up to be kind and make the world a better place.
We genuinely hope you find an adoptive family that sets your heart at ease and makes you smile while envisioning the life your baby will have. We hope that couple is us, but we want nothing more than for you to find that perfect fit. Thank you for taking the time to consider us!
Jenn and Nick
We’re thrilled you stopped to take a look at us. Thank you! We met in Chicago, where we’re both originally from, at our gym. Though we knew each other, we hadn’t gone on an actual date yet. Nick took a job opportunity in California and had a going away party. Jenn went, and as most love stories start, we hit it off. Then Nick moved the next day! After a year and a half of long-distance dating, Jenn moved out to California. Our relationship is silly, adventurous, and laid back. We still have a love for working out and have built our own garage gym. We love to travel and explore new things, but we are also big homebodies and enjoy hosting family and friends at our house. We now live in Washington and love it. Nick is an aviation consultant, and Jenn is a communications consultant.
Our Pets & Home
We are newer to Washington and so excited to be in the Pacific Northwest! We were lucky enough to move into a wonderful neighborhood that has amazing neighbors and some we’ve already called close friends, something we craved. We love to be outside hiking, biking, and finding local events. We have three goofy dogs who are our whole world. Harli is a ridgeback mix we adopted at six months old after Hurricane Harvey. Zola is a Weimaraner mix from Mexico we adopted as a three-month-old puppy. Lastly, Manu is a pug mix and one of the many dogs we fostered through the rescue Jenn volunteered at. He was adopted out but ended up finding his way back to stay.
Our Extended Family
Jenn’s family is a close, large bunch. She has a twin brother and younger sister and is very close with both of them, despite being states apart. She speaks with her parents daily and works with them in their small family business. She has a lot of aunts and uncles, 16 cousins, and one brand new nephew! She is very close with her grandpa, who is her last remaining grandparent.
Nick’s family, though not as big, is an awesome and lively bunch. He talks to his parents most days. He has a younger sister who was born on the same day exactly two years apart! His parents live around the corner from his sister, niece, and nephew. He has five cousins between both sides.
We don’t live down the street or even in the same state as our families, but it makes the time we spend together that much more meaningful. Both of our parents are in Florida, so we spend ten days at Christmas visiting both sides. We always try to have a “next trip” in the works so we have something to look forward to.
Why We Chose Adoption
Thankfully our adoption story has been a very happy one. We didn’t come down this path out of circumstance but choice. As a couple, we’ve been passionate about adopting throughout our relationship for reasons we can’t quite explain. We just knew it felt right and complete. We are so excited to open our hearts and home to the precious life you’re creating. We have quite a bit of adoption in our family and friends with Nick’s mom and aunt, Jenn’s two cousins, and a great friend’s son. We know first-hand that a family can happen in so many wonderful ways.
