We feel so incredibly blessed by all that God has provided for us, especially each other! We met in 2001 and have been inseparable ever since. We love each other’s company - whether hanging out at home, spending time at our favorite vacation spot on Cape Cod, or traveling overseas. For us, adoption is something that we are incredibly excited about and feel is an incredible way to add to our family. We would love so much to open up our hearts and home to a child. It has always been a dream of ours to have a child to love unconditionally and provide a bright future with opportunities for them to thrive in all aspects of their life. We would work hard to ensure that they have the very best education and experiences, and the chance to participate in a wide range of activities. We have a lot of family nearby who will help form a strong support group for a child. They are all eager to lend a hand and provide a lot of love and support. Jon also has flexibility in his job that would allow him to work from home or take time off when the child is sick or in need of extra attention. Thank you for taking the time to look through our profile. We wish you the very best.

More About Our Family

We met while Jon was working for a Congressman and Erin was working on a governor's election. We became immediate friends and within weeks, the best of friends. Three years, almost to the date of when we met, we married. We enjoy doing so much together - visiting historic sites, going to the beach, reading in front of the fireplace, or having friends and family over for barbecues. Serving others and helping children is very much a part of who we are. Erin works in fundraising and marketing for non-profits. She loves the moments that allow her to interact with the children like reading books to them. Jon helps to run a social service agency that serves the homeless population. He really likes the opportunities he has to spend time with the children in the programs. These are the best times in both of our days!

More About Jon

Jon's heart is so big! He is truly the kindest person I know. He is always looking out for others. If my mom needs something done at her house, he is on top of it, before she even asks. I have watched him care for both his grandmothers. His love and compassion is abundant. Not only is Jon incredibly smart, he is also an exceptionally hard worker. He takes pride in everything he does. He works hard to make our house a home, spending hours doing yard work and fixing things inside the house. I love that we can talk about anything and everything. Jon is so supportive and gives me the courage to take risks. As a father, Jon’s love and encouragement would ensure our child is happy, healthy, feels loved, and knows that they can do anything.

More About Erin

Erin is the love of my life and my best friend. She is incredibly caring and loves to help others. She is very intelligent and has a strong desire to keep learning. She also has a great sense of humor. I know that she would be an amazing mother and help our child navigate all of life’s ups and downs with so much love and caring. Erin is a great planner - taking care of details big and small. When planning for a big trip, she makes sure that we get to experience new things and makes sure that we do the must-sees on both our lists. She puts the same care in when we host parties and celebrations. Erin is a phenomenal baker. Everyone always requests that she make something (Chocolate Crinkles are my favorite!). My grandmother Rose was famous for the cookies she made each holiday with recipes passed down for generations. Erin has learned all the recipes and her making them at Christmas (and other times of the year) has become a new tradition and one she looks forward to passing down to another generation. Erin is also a very talented photographer. Our house and albums are filled with great pictures from our travels to our everyday life.
