- Children: One Child
- Region: Northwest
- Faith: Christian
- Education: College Degree
We would like to have at least two children in our family. We know that Jameson would be a great big brother. We would love Jameson to be a big brother since we know how much he loves hanging out with other kids. Denise and Sean know how much of a positive impact having a sibling can have on a child. To us, adoption means “Hope” and “Peace”. Hope for a better future for the child, the birth-mother, and the adoptive family. Peace for the birth-mother to know that her child will be loved and have a great life. We will never be able to understand the sacrifice you make, but we hope that you will feel comfortable placing your child’s future in our hands. We knew early on in our relationship that we would not be able to have children naturally, so we decided that adoption was going to be in our future. We have gone through the life changing process of adoption with Jameson. We have an open adoption with Jameson’s birth-mother where we maintain an open relationship by emailing her photos and let her know what is going on in Jameson’s life.
Get To Know Us
We love hanging out with family and friends and doing lots of kid oriented activities like going to the park, fairs, bouncy houses, swimming, camping, Easter egg hunts, train rides, the zoo, BBQ, and sporting events. We love spending time with our friends at church events, school events, the park, sporting events, dinners, going on vacations, and just hanging out. We have friends from growing up, church, work, school, and Jameson’s activities. We have friends with kids Jameson’s age, with kids older and younger than Jameson, and friends without kids. We have several friends that have gone through the adoption process as well. Our friends are very supportive of our adoption of Jameson and look forward to us adopting again. We treat our friends like they are family. We also enjoy playing board games together from Settlers of Catan to Ticket to Ride. We play Chutes and Ladders, Candyland, Hungry Hungry Hippo and other fun kid’s games with Jameson.
Our Home & Community
We own a one-story cozy 1500 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bath house in quiet neighborhood on a cul-de-sac. We have a nice fenced backyard and front yard for lots of family activities. We have fantastic neighbors and everyone knows and loves Jameson. We live close to Sean’s work, so he has a short commute home every night to spend more time with the family. We live in a diverse community due to living close to a Naval Base. The baby’s room will be next to Jameson’s room and we have a crib, changing table, and all needed baby gear ready to go! We are less than a 10 minute drive from many different parks, our church, the ferry that goes to Seattle, the YMCA, and Sean’s work. Jameson loves playing baseball and soccer in the front yard; playing with chalk, riding his bike, and playing with bubbles in the driveway and on the sidewalk; and helping in the garden.
What We're All About
We love to travel and immerse ourselves in new cultures! We have been able to go to many places separately, as a married couple, and as a family. Prior to being married Sean got the opportunities to visit Mexico, England, Spain, Italy, and Ireland on vacations. Prior to being married Denise got the opportunities to visit Canada, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean Islands for vacation. She studied in Mexico for a semester during college. Since we have been married, Sean got the opportunity to work in Japan which gave us the opportunity to visit Thailand and Vietnam afterwards. Within the states we have been to Arizona, California, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Montana, New Mexico, and Utah to visit family and friends. For our honeymoon we went on a Caribbean cruise which was an amazing adventure as we learned how to scuba dive together. We also went on an Alaskan cruise when Denise was learning about being a cruise line travel agent. Since we have adopted Jameson we have been to California, Maine, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Nevada and Oregon to vacation and visit family and friends. In the last couple years Jameson has been on two Caribbean cruises himself where he really enjoyed the kid program onboard the ship. We love spending time with our friends at church events, school events, the park, sporting events, dinners, going on vacations, and just hanging out. We have friends from growing up, church, work, school, and Jameson’s activities. We have friends with kids Jameson’s age, with kids older and younger than Jameson, and friends without kids. We have several friends that have gone through the adoption process as well. Our friends are very supportive of our adoption of Jameson and look forward to us adopting again. We treat our friends like they are family.
