Dear Birthmother,monica and jerry

Thank you so much for the gift of life. Your strength, courage and unconditional love speaks volumes to us. And we appreciate you considering us as prospective parents for your baby. We will be very sensitive to and honor the amount of openness you wish to have with us. Whatever decision you make, we will be praying for you and we know the decision you make will be the right choice for you and your baby.

Let us tell you a little about ourselves.

We met 16 years ago and have been married for 14 years. We have a 10 year old daughter named Lainey. Our desire to have another child has lead us to adoption. We are young at heart and family is of the utmost importance to us. We live a very well balanced and peaceful life and our sense of humor brings happiness wherever we go. We love to camp, hang out with extended family and we love to read. Knowledge of all sorts is encouraged and honored. Education is important. Our daughter attends a private Christian school, as will any other child that graces our home.

Christianity is a strong part of our lives and guides us with raising of children. We have been members of our church for over 15 years and we involve ourselves with various ministries.

About Monica, written by Jerry: Monica is 5′ 2″, has dark brown hair and warm brown eyes. She is a chiropractor, but choses to be a stay at home mom. She is an awesome mother to our ten year old daughter. She is quirky with an adventurous personality, yet easy going. She is always cooking or baking something delicious in our kitchen. Her other interests are hiking, camping and gardening.

About Jerry, written by Monica: Jerry is 5′ 9″ with blonde hair and blue eyes. He is a musician and a software analyst. He has worked for a large software company for over 14 years. He feels his sole purpose in life is to care for his family, which he does very well financially, physically and spiritually and his subtle humor will lift anyone’s spirits. Jerry is a good husband and committed father who is sensitive to other people’s needs. His other interests include inline skating and spending time with his family.

Lainey is a sweet natured and intelligent 10 year old. She dances with a Christian ballet company, loves to read, excels in math and science and has an affinity toward animals. Her desire is to work with endangered animals as an adult. She eagerly awaits a new brother or sister. And like our daughter, your baby will be encouraged to pursue their natural talents and interests.

We thank you again for taking our profile into consideration. We hope this gives you a little insight of who we are and please know that your precious baby will be very loved and cherished within our family.
