Dear Expectant Parent, Hello, we are Greg and Jason! We can only imagine the complexity of emotions going through your heart and head. We hope that as you learn more about us, you will feel at ease and maybe even a sense of peace. Although we too are feeling nervous, we want you to know that we are excited about taking this next step to grow our family and get to know you. We are ecstatic to be on this journey to parenthood. We dream of the day we get to be dads and guide a little soul through the world. Every parent wants their child to have the opportunity to do whatever their heart desires, and we can't wait to be our child's number one supporter; cheering them on in whatever they set out to do. Our home is bursting at the seams with love to share. We look forward to sharing an abundance of love and laughter with a child and giving them every opportunity to pursue their dreams. We appreciate your consideration in making an adoption plan for your baby, and we hope to get to know more about you. Whatever your choice may be, know that we are thinking of you in such a difficult time. We wish you all the best in finding the family that you're looking for and peace in your decision-making.
Gregory & Jason
We met online - before smartphones! - and have been attached at the hip ever since. Always willing to try new things, our first date was at an amusement park and the thrill truly never stopped. We are fun and spontaneous! Jason proposed to Greg on a sunset cruise and Greg surprised Jason with a Vegas wedding. We keep our relationship exciting and, even after all our time together, we still find a way to surprise one another. In our relationship, our individual characteristics complement one another, such as Greg's organization skills and attention to detail, along with Jason's problem-solving and determined drive. Jason has been working for 15 years as a high school teacher and Greg is a director of a college teacher's union. Our work in education is something we are dedicated to and passionate about. We enjoy participating in charitable events and activism for cancer, the environment, social justice, and more. Our relationship is strong, built on a foundation that focuses on support and communication. Achieving goals as a family unit is what is most rewarding. Whether it's cooking new recipes or setting out to tackle home improvement projects, we always aim is to grow together. We hope to bring these qualities into parenting, not only to teach our child these values, but also to share our adventures with a little one and see the world through their eyes.
About Greg according to Jason
Greg is an attentive and loving husband. He is such a bright person and brings quirkiness and humor to every interaction. What I admire most about him, though, is his kind and considerate heart. I cannot wait to see him embrace fatherhood and watch him share his wisdom, compassion, and unconditional love with our child.
according to Greg
Jason is going to be an incredible father. I am amazed at how he excels at life's challenges through his determination and strength. He demonstrates his care, concern, and commitment through his actions, not just words. Jason makes me laugh every single day and also pushes me to achieve more. I cannot wait to see him step into the role of being a dad!
Love makes a family
Our immediate and extended family are very important to us. Not only do we share holidays, celebrations, and get-togethers with our family, but we can also rely on them in tough times as well. Our cousins, grandparents, godparents, aunts, and uncles are ready and eager to share their love and advice, and some are even experienced with adoption, which we are so grateful for. We are so thankful that they are here supporting us on this journey. They cannot wait to welcome a new baby into our family time (even with diaper changes!)
Meet our furry family members! Our cat, Franklin, purrs like a motor while being pet. Toby, a rescued Golden Retriever, likes to practice tricks, especially for a treat. Milli, our Weimaraner, is a kissing machine who likes to cuddle and run!
We bought our home with family in mind and we are proud to have it as a foundation for our future. It is a spacious and child-friendly colonial in New Jersey. Family time is our focus. We have a completely finished carpeted attic that will serve as a designated play area. Another appealing feature is the available outdoor space where our child will be able to swim, play games and sports, and play catch with our dogs. We love hosting events, holidays, and weekend gatherings with family and friends as well.
Our Community We live in a lovely neighborhood with quiet streets and beautiful old houses. Nature is abundant throughout our neighborhood; we enjoy the scenery as we take our dogs on long walks. The nearby parks and trails are plentiful, whether for a hike or some fun time on the playground. Our little corner of the world will be a fun and exciting place for any child with a big imagination. Our area is very diverse; offering exposure to different cultures and people that makes for a vibrant life. We have a strong, tight-knit community with our friends. Whether it is going on vacation, BBQing, a sporting event, or concerts, celebrating life and friendship is important to us. We look forward to the day we get to take our child to playdates and adventures with our "extended" family!
We appreciate you taking the time to get a glimpse into our lives. We hope that you see our passion and love for life and how much love we have to offer a child. As we are hopeful of adding a child to our family, we are also hopeful of sharing this joy with you in an open adoption. Your child will always know of your love for them, and we carefully and intentionally carry the responsibility of honoring you in our home. We wish you all the best going forward as you consider your options.
