A Letter from Jason & Cindy

A warm sunshine-state hello to you! We’re an active, outdoors-loving family of three who likes to play, read, kick up a living-room dance party, and have all kinds of travels and adventures together. We’d be so blessed to welcome your little one into our hearts and home. We are looking forward to getting to know you and staying connected with chats, letters, and visits.

About Us

We met one night almost 20 years ago while we were both out with friends, but we started talking about building a family about 10 years ago. In 2015, we were blessed with our son, Nolan, through adoption. We are so excited to grow our family again.

On weekends, we like to meet up with friends, play and paddleboard at the beach, hang out outside, and get in some extra cuddles with our sweet dog, Cooper. Your child will have so many everyday and exciting experiences, like kayaking, skiing, hiking, baking, reading, and so much more. 

About Jason (in Cindy's Words)

Jason’s a great man, partner, and dad. He’s always focused on our family. He’s genuine, affectionate, and accepting, and I love the kind of role model and example he is to Nolan and that he will be to our next child too.

Jason enjoys reading, playing golf, skiing, biking, and coaching baseball. He’s excited to include our next child in all of our family adventures. As a program manager who works from home 3 days a week, Jason’s job has a ton of flexibility. He sometimes brings a special lunch to eat with Nolan at school.

About Cindy (in Jason's Words)

Cindy is the heart of our home. She is loving, lovable, and playful. Her creativity and background in writing and elementary education shine through in her parenting. Cindy volunteers a lot in our community, including being at Nolan’s school every week.

She also enjoys going to yoga, skiing, hiking, biking, and traveling. One of her favorite quiet activities is curling up with a good book. She’s really looking forward to having another little helper to cut out cookie shapes and shake sprinkles.

Our Son and Extended Family

At age 6, Nolan is full of wholehearted spirit and a love for all things marshmallow (and birthday cake ice cream). Like his birth mom and us, music is one of Nolan’s favorite things. He’s taking guitar lessons and puts on amazing concerts and dance contests.

Nolan gives a thumbs-up to all sports, crafts, and doing science experiments. He can’t wait to read to your child, take him or her to Discovery Cove to swim with a dolphin, and go to Jason’s family’s farm together in Missouri.

Extended Family | We’re supported by amazing grandparents, siblings, cousins, and long-time forever friends. Some of our family lives nearby, and we enjoy visiting with them often. Others are just a plane ride away, and we get to travel to spend time with them. We’ve had several adoptions in our extended family! Everyone is excited to love your child.

Top Traditions | Every year, we take a trip to honor Nolan’s adoption story, and we will create a tradition for your child, too. One of our favorite Christmastime traditions is gathering with extended family in a town with millions of lights and taking in the sights from a horse and carriage!

Our Home in Florida

We live in a safe town that’s a quick drive from a few bigger cities. It’s seriously the cutest! There are lots of palm trees, sweet annual traditions, a farmer’s market, and great families and neighbors. Our house is cheerful and cozy. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a bonus room. 

Right from our home, we can walk or bike to school, the beach, parks, art center, theatre for kids classes, library, baseball practice, an ice cream shop, outdoor concerts, restaurants, and more. Your child‘s nursery will have patterns, a comfy glider to read stories, a map to pin travels, books, and more. 

 

Our Promise

We promise to love fully and completely and to honor the loving agreement that adoption is between you, your child, and us.

Your child will be supported and cherished by us and our entire family. We’ll listen and encourage dreams, offer guidance, celebrate every accomplishment, share the joy of traveling with them, and provide them with a well-rounded lifestyle. We promise to kiss boo-boos, tie shoes, read books, help with homework, chaperone field trips, bake chocolate chip cookies, save for college, and honor their adoption story. We will always—always—advocate and cheerlead endlessly on their behalf, from milestones to every moment in between.

If you would like to learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

From our hearts to yours,

Cindy and Jason

More About Our Family
Do you love music?

Music's a given in our house (and car!). 😉 Growing up, Jason played the drums and Cindy played the clarinet and bass clarinet. Nolan has a few instruments and will start music lessons soon. At the holidays, we do karaoke sessions at home with extended family, complete with microphones. It's so much fun!

What values will you teach?

The morals we learned from our parents and church have shaped who we are today and the decisions we make. A few of the core values we strive to show and teach are honesty, love, kindness, compassion, and helping others. Another that's deeply important to us is accepting and appreciating differences. Along with what we do every day, we believe traveling and creating opportunities to learn about different cultures is key to this one, and we'll always continue to do both.

What are meals like at your house?

We love a just-baked treat. But our day-to-day meals have a lot of whole foods are really fresh. (We go through a lot of fruit!) Cindy does most of the cooking and Jason does the grilling. In the evenings, we sit down for dinner together. If it's nice out, we like to eat on the patio.

How important is education to you?

Both of our moms were teachers, Cindy has taught, and there are a lot of educators in our extended family too—elementary through university level. We both value our overall experience, from kindergarten through college. We're committed to giving your child the same, from great schools to being involved parents at class parties and events. From year one, we started saving for Nolan's college and we're ready to do that for your child too.

In Closing
