Our son, James, is a happy toddler who gives the best high fives! He is always full of smiles and giggles, and he loves to share and play with other children at the park. James will be a gentle and kind big brother.
What adoption looks like for us: We have an open adoption with James’ birth mother, sharing updates and pictures as he grows and learns new things. It’s been such a positive experience, and, if you’re comfortable, we welcome scheduling visits and sharing contact with you, as your child grows up too.
Our Extended Family
Brian’s parents live close and visit regularly for family dinner. They enjoy reading books or playing cars with James. We also have 6 nieces and 1 nephew, and it’s so fun to get all the cousins together. Jen’s parents live in Oregon and we take turns visiting each other several times a year. When we visit them in Oregon, we take boat rides at the lake, make s’mores, and sing together around their fire pit. Jen also has aunts, uncles, and cousins who live locally, so we like to have our extended family over for games, swimming, and barbecue.
