Dear Birthmother,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family and for considering us as adoptive parents. While we cannot imagine how difficult this decision must be, we want you to know that if you choose us, your baby will join a loving home with parents who have always dreamed of adopting and family and friends who can’t wait to welcome them into their lives.

Adoption has always been a part of our plan to grow our family. We are both lucky to have families who support and nurture us and have been there for us our entire lives. It is our dream to share that love and support with our future child and to provide an environment full of learning, exploration, and new experiences. Each step of this process has only affirmed how thankful we are to be able to bring a child into our lives.

We cannot begin to fathom the sacrifice you are making, but we can promise that if you choose us, your baby will be loved and cherished. They will have parents who adore them, grandparents who spoil them, and countless friends and family members who will always be there for them. They will receive a great education, they will see the world, and they will be encouraged and celebrated. If you choose us, we will love this child and strive to set them up for a lifetime of success and happiness.

Sincerely,
David & Jourdan


About

About Us

We met in Washington, DC, while David was in graduate school and Jourdan was interning for a Congressman and have been together for eight years. We also enjoy spending time outside and in the water, whether it’s in our pool, kayaking on the lake, or going to the beach. David even proposed on a chartered yacht with a view of the monuments on the Potomac River! Traveling the world is one of our greatest passions, and experiencing new places and cultures has enriched our lives and our relationship. We are both very driven professionally. Jourdan has a career in human resources, while David’s career is in public policy and government. While we love to travel and find new adventures, we enjoy spending time at home with our dogs and our families the most.


Home

Our Home

We moved to Pennsylvania to start a family. We renovated our house that has a large backyard and pool. We live in the town where Jourdan’s grandfather was the milkman then the mayor. Our house is next to the local elementary, middle, and high schools, and we hear the sound of children walking to school every day. We love the feeling of community and traditions like the annual Spring Fling, Halloween parade, and Christmas tree lighting on the town square. We enjoy the local parks and trails where we take our dogs: a nine-year old Pompoo, Kona, and a one-year old mini goldendoodle, Ranger, whom we adore. They can’t wait to have a baby brother or sister!


Extended Family Extended Family

Our Extended Family

The importance of family forms the backbone of our marriage. Jourdan’s parents, her brother and his family, and her grandmother live very close to us. We do everything together, from backyard barbeques and birthdays to opening Christmas presents. We have two adorable nieces who have grown up with us and were flower girls at our wedding! Every year Jourdan’s family goes to the beach for July 4th and the Caribbean for Christmas. David even met Jourdan’s parents at the beach!

David’s parents and his younger sister live a lot farther away, but we see them as often as possible and have weekly video chats. His parents both recently retired and can’t wait to travel to see their new grandchild. David is the second oldest of ten cousins, and one of his cousins was the best man at our wedding! We travel to see David’s family for Thanksgiving, and we do “creative” gifts for Hanukkah. We wrote a song and performed it for David’s sister!

Our parents are extremely close, and we have spent multiple holidays together. We love that our parents are such good friends. Our future child will always be surrounded by relatives who love them.


Story

What Led Us To Adoption

For as long as she can remember, adoption has been part of Jourdan’s plan to grow her future family. Since we started dating, we have talked about adoption and cannot imagine our lives without a child. One of Jourdan’s best friends is adopted, and David grew up with close family friends with two adopted children. Both of us are passionate about building a family full of love. We are both extremely lucky to come from loving families who have always supported and nurtured us, and we can’t wait to share that with our future child.
