A Letter from John & Jennifer
Hello! We are John and Jennifer, and we are excited to begin this chapter of our lives and expand our family through adoption. We have a big, multicultural family and surround ourselves with great family values. We enjoy hosting family get togethers and holidays at our home, watching sports, and walking our dog. Church is a big part of our lives. We look forward to getting to know you and you learning more about us.
We met at Jenn’s job, which was a 49ers sports bar, and have been together for 5 years now. We love sports (either watching or attending games), going hiking, to the movies, and taking our dog, Lyra, on walks. We also like to hang out in our backyard for BBQs and to play games with family and friends.
We both knew before we got married that we wanted to expand our family, and after experiencing infertility, we were led to the road of adoption.
We look forward to showing our child how deeply loved they are by us and our large family. We are excited to share with them our passion for sports, take them to sporting events, and teach them how to cook and work on cars. We look forward to traveling with our child, taking him/her on adventures, and exploring new places with them. We’re excited and blessed to have them in all of the get-togethers that we have at our home with family and friends for BBQ’s, birthdays, and many Holidays.
John says: Jennifer is smart and very intuitive; she’s all about family first and will give the shirt off her back to those in need. She knows what she wants and is very respectful of others. She’s beautiful both inside and out, and I love the fact that she enjoys the same thing I do, like sports (she loves the Steelers), the great outdoors (especially going on hikes), working out, and attending/hosting family gatherings.
She loves cooking and coordinating family gatherings in her free time. She is looking forward to being a stay-at-home mom as she missed much when her two older children (now 25 and 23) were little as she was a single mom.
She looks forward to sharing family traditions, teaching our child how to cook, and sharing her love for music and sports- especially soccer.
Jennifer says: John is very funny and has the kindest soul. He is always there for everyone, especially family; I love that family means everything to him. He is hard working and ensures that we have a secure life with our home. I always know that I am loved no matter what from him it’s the little things he does to show it.
He loves working on cars and things around the house; there is always something to do. He is an aircraft mechanic and loves his job as he gets to work on all types of aircrafts. John also loves to BBQ, ride his dirt bike and quad, and play and watch sports; especially the 49ers (for football) and the Golden Knights (for hockey).
He looks forward to teaching our child Tagalog, as that is his native language, how to work on cars and mechanical things, having a little buddy to watch sports with, and being a dad to our next child!
We have two adult children from Jenn’s previous relationship. Our daughter is in the Army and is married with 2 children. She was always active in competitive dance and singing all the way through high school. Our son is in the Navy and enjoys playing soccer in his free time. Currently, our daughter lives on the East Coast, and our son is being stationed on the East Coast also, which we visit often.
They are both excited and supportive of our plans for adoption, as they will have a younger sibling.
We are blessed to both have loving and supportive extended families who are all excited about our adoption. They are all thrilled to be a part of our adoption process and looking forward to this new blessing.
We live in a suburban, family-friendly neighborhood with many kids. We have a 2-story, 3-bedroom home and a large backyard with plenty of room to play. There are schools nearby, an elementary around the corner, and we are looking into private schools. There are multiple large parks, walking trails, and waterparks close by that we go to often. We are excited to put together the nursery and have so many ideas.
Our favorite part of our home is our backyard, which we made family friendly. We have added an extended patio cover with fans and misters outside. We also have added artificial grass for a large play area, and there is a designated corner for planting, with multiple fruit trees. This is the perfect area for our cornhole and foosball game matches that we have.
We promise to love and protect your child with everything we have unconditionally. We will give them every opportunity to explore, grow, build strong relationships, and have a great education. We will pass down our Catholic values and provide them with a loving home where they can express themselves. We will lead by example by teaching kindness and showing love for all. We promise to honor you as an important part of our family we will always be open and honest. You will always hold a special place in our hearts and our lives. We look forward to an open relationship through letters, pictures, and visits.
We look forward to learning about you and, if you would like to know more about us, we’d be happy to share.
