Jason & Christine

Hello, we are Jason and Christine. Thank you so much for choosing to read our story and learn about us as you consider prospective parents.

In 2014, just like so many others these days, we met online. We started chatting and after a few weeks, we made an impromptu date for that night. Unfortunately, it was snowing out and on his way to the date, Jason got into a car accident. He totaled his vehicle but thankfully he was ok. Imagine having to make that call to someone that you were supposed to meet for a first date. HA! Luckily, Christine believed him and they were able to reschedule for a few weeks later. It was supposed to be a quick and early dinner, but it ended up turning into a six-hour date with a movie and long conversations over coffee. We both knew we had something special and couldn’t wait to see what the future held. We continued to grow the relationship and were married in the summer of 2016.

We have always known that family was important to us and couldn’t wait to share our love. We tried for a few years but ultimately, we knew adoption would be the best way to grow our family. Adoption is not new to us as Christine’s niece was adopted from Guatemala and has brought so much joy and happiness to the whole family. We are eager and hopeful that an open adoption will be a wonderful way to add to our family and to share all the love and warmth that we possibly can.

It was about nine years into an adventurous path in the U.S. Army when I found myself in the desert for the third time. I began feeling something was missing from my life. I would think back to my childhood and the fond memories I had of playing baseball with my Dad. He taught me to pitch really well. Later, I made the high school team as a starting pitcher, with both my Dad and Mom cheering me on. It was during ...

It was about nine years into an adventurous path in the U.S. Army when I found myself in the desert for the third time. I began feeling something was missing from my life. I would think back to my childhood and the fond memories I had of playing baseball with my Dad. He taught me to pitch really well. Later, I made the high school team as a starting pitcher, with both my Dad and Mom cheering me on. It was during that deployment that it dawned on me - I longed for a family of my own and that wouldn’t be possible if I was constantly deploying to other countries with the military. 

Several years after that realization, I started a successful business career outside of the military and still had the goal of a family on my mind. Soon after, I met Christine. She had high hopes for a family of her own as well. I could see the way she treated her nieces with such love as if they were her own, and they responded to that love in kind. There is not a month that goes by that her oldest niece (who is adopted) calls her to chat. Christine was that missing piece in my life, and I found that peace of mind with her that we were on this same journey together.

Christine

Most little kids dream of being a hairdresser, a teacher, or a lawyer, but not me. I dreamed of working and running an office. Luckily, I had a few neighbors that owned their businesses and let me work for them. I’m not sure who benefited more, me getting the experience or them getting nearly free help. Either way, I found something that I loved. I went to school and ended up getting my Bachelor's degree in ...

Most little kids dream of being a hairdresser, a teacher, or a lawyer, but not me. I dreamed of working and running an office. Luckily, I had a few neighbors that owned their businesses and let me work for them. I’m not sure who benefited more, me getting the experience or them getting nearly free help. Either way, I found something that I loved. I went to school and ended up getting my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration.  

After college, I made the move to the big city and began my career. I spent my time exploring the city, traveling with friends, and even going back to school. It was when my nieces were born that I realized just how much I wanted to settle down and have some children. I loved spending time with them. We would go to the park, bake sweets, have dance parties and lots of girl time. I look back at these times with fond memories and I hope they do too.  

When I met Jason, I just knew there was something different about him. He liked to read, liked cats, loved to travel, and to my surprise, he was actually living in my hometown. What made me fall for him was when he first came over to my house, he brought a toy for my cat. He quickly won over Smokey, therefore winning me over! Today, Jason is a terrific cat dad, a fun uncle and I just know he’s going to be an incredible father. On our first date, I tripped over the rug and he caught me and I like to say I’ve been falling for him ever since!

Our Home

We live in a warm and cozy, three-bedroom ranch house located right in the heart of Mid-Michigan. In the wintertime, we love to snuggle in front of the fireplace and watch movies, while our cat, Smokey, loves to sit in front of the patio door and watch his squirrel friends play. On warm days, you find us grilling out, lying in the hammock, playing in the flower garden, or reading on our big blue deck.

We live in a warm and cozy, three-bedroom ranch house located right in the heart of Mid-Michigan. In the wintertime, we love to snuggle in front of the fireplace and watch movies, while our cat, Smokey, loves to sit in front of the patio door and watch his squirrel friends play. On warm days, you find us grilling out, lying in the hammock, playing in the flower garden, or reading on our big blue deck.

Our home wouldn’t be nearly as cozy if it weren’t for the resident feline in charge, Smokey. Let’s face it as any animal owner knows, it is their house and you live in it. Smokey is our 14-year-old furbaby. He came to live with Christine when he was just three-years-old, before that he lived with Christine’s brother. Christine knew just how much he meant to her nieces so she decided to take him in so that he could still be a part of their lives. It was a win-win situation for all. Smokey is a loveable, goofy cat with lots of personality and everyone that comes in contact with him just loves him.

We live in a great neighborhood as there are nearby nature parks, walking trails, and a zoo all within walking distance from us. The zoo has a wonderful area just for kids where they can interact with goats, ponies, bunnies, and even have a chance to feed and ride a camel.

We both have siblings. Jason is the oldest of three boys, while Christine is the youngest and has a sister and a brother. We have five nieces and one nephew in total. We like to like to have the older nieces over for sleepovers, where we bake cupcakes, paint nails, have dance parties and watch movies.

Christmas is big in our families. We all get together and have small gift exchanges with the adults. The little ones are showered with presents on both sides, so much so that the cars can barely fit everything. Christine’s extended family members are huge card players which means when they together an intense card came is going to happen. Jason’s family loves to take trips together. Gatlinburg TN, a place where his extended family lived when he was young, is a frequent hot spot. However, no matter where it may be; miniature golf is always on the agenda!

We are both very lucky to have the majority of our family members living less than an hour away from each other. When we told everyone about our decision to adopt, they all were ecstatic. They can’t wait to meet the newest addition to the family and share in loving the child.

Hobbies and Interests

Jason loves adventure and learning about new things. When he is not reading his “Jack Reacher” or “Dresden Files” books I can find him reading a history book about ancient Greece or Roman culture. Jason loves the movies, which goes back to his Dad introducing him to movies and books with characters such as Indiana Jones and Batman. In fact, Jason’s whole family loves the movies.

Jason loves adventure and learning about new things. When he is not reading his “Jack Reacher” or “Dresden Files” books I can find him reading a history book about ancient Greece or Roman culture. Jason loves the movies, which goes back to his Dad introducing him to movies and books with characters such as Indiana Jones and Batman. In fact, Jason’s whole family loves the movies. When a big movie comes out we all go together. We also get together a few times a year and do a movie night with his mom.

Christine loves to be crafty. She owns a Cricut and has had fun making cards, car decals, cups, signs, clothing, and embellishments. She also enjoys scrapbooking our travels together. When she’s not crafting, I can find her reading books by Shari Lapena or Jennifer Weiner just to name a few.

We go on wonderful trips together, where we always end up at a museum (or two!) and end up exploring areas less traveled by normal tourists. We love to just get in the car and go. Jason’s love for adventure and learning has even rubbed off on Smokey (our cat) who is now addicted to watching anything with pirates in it. 

One of the greatest interests we share together is our love of musicals. Every opportunity we can, we schedule time for the dramatic arts in our life, so much so that our 1st dance together was “All I Ask of You”, from Phantom of the Opera.

Thank you for reading our letter and considering us to raise your child. Children are a gift from God, and we can’t thank you enough for this wonderful blessing that only you can give us. You’re amazing for considering adoption and us! 

If you feel that we’re the right fit for you and your baby, please rest assured that your child will be so loved and cared for. We can’t wait to teach them their ABC’s, how to read and write, the difference between Marvel and DC, and to give back to the world. We look forward to creating lasting, loving and happy memories. From baking cupcakes, traveling the world, seeing plays, and visiting museums; we both look forward to imparting our knowledge and love for education and adventure. We want nothing more than to see this child grow and soar. We know it won’t be all happy times, but we will be there to hold them when they are having a bad day, pick them up when they fall, and kiss those tears away.

Our greatest hope is to give a child the tools and guidance to be highly successful in their life. Most importantly, we hope to raise a child who is well-loved, kind-hearted, and happy. We are looking forward to creating so many amazing opportunities for this child. We also look forward to meeting you and creating many fond memories as we travel on this journey together.

Kermit, Piggy, Gonzo, Big Bird, Grover just a few of my favorite muppets. All muppets that we grew up with and still love to this day. We had read that the Henry Ford Mueseum, in Detroit, was having a Jim Henson exhibit and we had to go. Jason hadn't been to the museum since he was a kid and this was my first trip. The Henry Ford was filled with lots of things to see and learn about but obviously my favorite was the Jim Henson exhibit. Growing up the muppets were everywhere and I quickly fell in love with them all.  It was so cool to see the actual muppets in person. They even had characters and clothing from labyrinth and the dark crystal, which made Jason very happy. My favorite though was seeing characters from Fraggle Rock and Muppet Babies, both shows that I loved as a child. Jason and I left the museum that day stating that we can't wait to come back as a family and to be able to share these childhood shows and memories with them.

Mackinac Island holds a special place in our hearts as it was the first vacation that Jason and I took together. A few weeks ago we were up in Petosky and decided to take a day trip over to the Island. One of our favorite things to do while visiting the island is to rent bikes and ride all the way around the island. When we arrived on the Island we went straight to the bike rental kiosk. We rented the bikes and then the cashier told us that there was construction on the back half of the island but not to worry because there is a road that goes through the center of the island that you can take. The first time we visited the island we took that road, it's very scenic but hilly and being the novice bike rider that I am , I was not looking forward to this. The first half of the ride was nice, we stopped along the shore and took in the views of the bridge. Then we came to the end of the road and had to take the detour. To say it was hilly was an understatement. It was hill after hill after hill. The only good thing about going up a hill is that you also get to go down a hill too. The scenery was beautiful and it did allow you to explore more of the island that you normally wouldn't see. We really did have a lot of fun that day and we can't wait to have kids so we can share this beautiful gem of an island with them. Hills and all!

One of our favorite things to do, while on vacation is to Putt Putt Golf. A few weeks ago Jason and I got the opportunity to get away for a few days to Petosky. On our first night in town we found the Pirates Adventure Putt Putt Golf Course.  It was busy that evening and just about at every hole we had to wait. The wait ended up being a great opportunity to make new friends and we just happened to do just that. We ended up chatting with the couple behind us and sharing tips on the best way to score a hole in one. They have been to that course several times before so they were giving us the best tips, we just cheered them on. In all the years that we've played putt putt; I've only won a game or two so no surprise that Jason ended up being the big winner. He even won a free round by getting a hole in one in the hole of the day. We didn't get the opportunity to return before we left town but now we have a reason to go back. Next time I'll be out for revenge and hope to even the score.

One of our favorite pasttimes is getting in the car and driving to the west side of the state. Last Saturday was a great day to do just that. We jumped in the car and headed to one of our favorite cities, Saugatuck. Saugatuck is a small town right on Lake Michigan with great restaurants and beautiful beaches. While it was too cold to enjoy the beach, we did enjoy grabbing some lunch and walking around their downtown area. After we walked downtown we hopped back in the car and headed north to Holland. We managed to get a little downtown shopping in before the rain came. Once the rain came we decided to head home. We love it in that area and try to get over there any chance we get, especially when we can have a beach day. We look forward to doing this a family and can't wait to share our love of Lake Michigan with a little one.

One of my favorite pasttimes is crafting. I love to scrapbook the trips that Jason and I take and I look forward to making them for our future children too. It's a great way to preserve those special memories. One of the best investments I've ever made is the Cricut machine.  I've been able to take my scrapbooks to another level as well as create a lot more. I've made signs, cups, car decals, home decor and clothing. However, one of my favorite things to do is use it to make gifts. This past month I've been able to make a onsie, a sleep gown and a card for a friend as a baby gift for her little boy. I'm also helping to use it to make decorations for my nieces high school graduation open house. Any chance to use it, I will take. It's the simple joys in life that make me happy.

It's been about a year since Christine and I both were able to see our Nieces and Nephew and at that time two of them were not walking yet. We were fortunate that everyone in the family had just been fully vacinated and could we could finally see each other. Our day started off with seeing Breckyn (our almost 5 year old niece) play soccer. She was so excited to see us and our excitement was just the same. After the game we went back to their house to spend some more time.  As soon as we came into thier house Braxton and Braylee were all over us, showing their toys off and wanting to be held at every moment. There was a tinge of jealousy going around from the oldest, Breckyn, but she managed to retain her cool by grabbing Christine and taking her outside to play away from her siblings. Christine and I were both very amazed how Braxton & Braylee seemed to remember us and both welcome us back into thier hearts so easily. Christine and I left the day feeling overjoyed. We are already inserting ourselves into the babysitting schedule and plan on having Breckyn over for some fun with us as soon as possible. It's so good to feel some normalcy creeping back into life and to re-connect with family. A year has been way too long.

Spring Break brings on Spring Fever

It was recently spring break season for the schools in the area.  It seemed like all of our friends and family were someplace warm and everytime you opened up social media you were given a slideshow of their family vacation photos. Seeing our friends enjoying a spring break family vacation got Jason and I talking about our spring breaks as kids and what we envisioned for our future family.

When Jason was a kid his spring breaks and/or family vacations consisted of visiting his grandparents in North Carolina.  He would spend time outdoors in the mountains exploring with his brothers and spending time with his grandparents. His grandparents have since moved back to Michigan and love to tell stories of times when they would visit, memories that both Jason and his grandparents remember fondly. 

I had a very different spring break experience. We didn't have family in another state to visit and if I wanted to visit my grandparents I just had to walk down the street. We didn't do family vacations, instead we would do day trips to either Grand Rapids or Lansing. My fondest spring break memory would be when my best friends parents took us to Chicago our senior year. We had our own room and we were free to wonder around the city (within reason). We felt like adults or what we thought being an adult felt like. 

For our family we hope to create as many experiences and memories during breaks as possible. I have a friend that makes a family bucket list at the start of every year. This bucket list can be anything from vacations, room redo, goals, and experiences.  I love this idea and hope to incorporate it into our family someday. 

With all of this Spring Break discussion it brought on some spring fever too. We can't wait to get outside, feel the sunshine on our face, dig in the dirt, go for walks, plant some flowers and just enjoy the fresh air. However, we have snow tonight so spring is just going to have to wait a little bit longer.

It was a big week for our family this week. Jason and I did our part to help stop the spread of Covid-19, we got our first dose of the Covid vaccine. Not only did we get our first dose but three other family members got theirs and both of our moms received their second doses. In one week that makes seven of us got vaccinate and another has an appointment next week for their first shot. This is big news as that means we are on our way to spending time together with family again. After hearing that three of us got vaccinated Jason's mom immediatly started planning a reunion. The date for that reunion is set for June and it will be the first time in over a year that we all will be together. Needless to say we are all looking forward to spending time together again and can't wait for June.

Happy Easter! Well 2021 did it again, we once again stayed home this Easter just like last year. In a "normal" year we would go to my mom's house where she would host Easter Dinner for us, my sister and her husband, and several of my aunts and uncles. All together there would be about twelve of us. Dinner would consist of ham, my famous green bean casserole, cheesy potatoes and a jello salad (a family tradition) along with many other side dishes. After dinner we would all gather around and play a game of uno or sequence and those that didn't want to play would chat in the living room. It was a great time and we usually went well into the night.

Well this year Covid got in the way again. While most of elder family members have had at least one shot of the vaccine, Jason and I have yet to get ours, so we didn't want to take the chance. Instead we stayed home and got to enjoy the day together. In what is starting to become a fun tradition I made pancakes in the shape of bunnies for breakfast, then we spent the day doing some spring cleaning. Jason made hamburgers on the grill for dinner and while it wasn't a traditional Easter dinner, it was still really good. It's such a beautiful day that after dinner we went for a walk around our neighboorhood.

While it was a nice Easter, we look forward to the days of coloring eggs and an Easter Egg hunt with our future children . Of course, we can't forget to start the day with bunny pancakes.🐰

I did something yesterday that I hardly ever do, in fact I can't remember the last time I did it to that extent. I spent the day taking care of me. A few months ago I purchased a massage package from my chirpractor and yesterday I had my first of many massages.  My plan for the day was get massage, Jason and I would go grab a few groceries, then he'd go to work and I'd get start on tackling my list. Well the day started out that way. I got my massage, Jason and I made a trip to Sam's Club and then he went to work. That's when the day went off the rails. I layed down on the couch and that was it for me. I spent the day catching up on one of my favorite shows (A Million Little Things), I ate junk food, I snuggled with Smokey (our cat), I read a little bit and just enjoyed the day and it felt great! I'm usually the type of person that can't just sit and watch hours upon hours of tv, I have to be doing something whether it's laundry, the dishes, or something else that needs attention, but yesterday I did none of it and it didn't bother me one bit. I ignored the fitbit telling me to move, I ignored the dirty dishes and for once I releaxed and didn't let those things bother me. The guilt did set in a little bit when Jason came home but here is what I love about that man. I aplogized and he said "why are you aplogozing? I'm glad you took the day for you." With those words, my guilt went away. 

Now of course because I didn't do a thing yesterday then we must tackle it today but we're ready.  I've got my coffee in my wonder woman mug and breakfast burritos ready to be eaten. It's time to get this glorious day started.

Preparing for Baby

Next month will mark three years of trying to grow our family through adoption. When we started this journey we told ourselves that we won't be purchasing anything until the time comes. Our family was even in agreement with that and said that when the time comes everyone will rally and get us what we need. Over the years we bended the rules here and there with a cute outfit here and there but nothing to big. Our first actual purchase was for a doc a tot baby lounger about a year into our journey. I found one on facebook marketplace that was just too good a deal to pass up and if you know me, you know I love a good deal. 

Our stance on not buying anything big changed when one evening last May we received a call for a baby born situtation. We were elated and excited and then unprepardness set in. We were in the middle of a lock down and we only had a few pieces of clothing. Eek! We immediatly called Jason's brother who just had twins a few months ago, luckily they had a few things they could give us. However, it turned out that that baby wasn't meant to be ours but it got us thinking. We should really have a few items on hand to get us started. 

Just because we hadn't purchased anything didn't mean that we hadn't researched and picked out the items that we want. Our first major purchase was a pack and play as it can serve so many purposes. We purchased one that can be used as a basinet and has a removable seat so it will grow with them. A car seat is something that we've always talked about but wanted to put off for as long as we could because of the manufactur expiration date. Well remember I said I love me a good deal?  A few weeks ago I was at Target and they clearanced out a bunch of baby equipment. In that section was the exact car seat/stroller combo that we had picked out. I texted Jason immediatly and told him about it and said I almost purchased it. His response "well why didn't you?". That was all I needed to go back and get it. I went back a few days later just to see if it was still there. If it was, then it was meant to be. Well sure enough it was still there so I purchased it. We have a section in the basement for baby items that we have purchased while we wait. I just figured that that is where the stroller/car seat would go, but nope Jason brought it in and immediatly started assembling it. We had so much fun putting together the stroller and car seat and envisioning taking walks together as a family. The stroller and car seat are now being stored in the room we have picked out for baby. I wasn't sure at first if I would like seeing it every day but it turns out seeing it makes me smile and gives me hope for the day that we get it use it. I am so glad we made the purchase and can now say that we will have one less thing to stress about when the times does come.

Today, Christine and I planned a day trip to The Crossings which is a huge mall about an hour from us. We planned to go there with the purpose of attempting to get into the Rainforest Cafe to eat, something that has eluded us the past couple times we went there. Usually its about a 2 hour wait to get in and when we visited the mall in the past we were always hungry and in no frame of mind to wait in the line. This time we would show up not hungry, plan stuff to do in the mall and get on the list early. Turns out the pandemic had compounded that normal, two hour wait time into two whole days. We were thouroughly upset to say the least.

We ended up in a theatre line, inside the mall and getting tickets to see Raya and the Last Dragon. This little boy, turns around and begins talking to us. He explains how excited he is to get out of the house and go do stuff and that the mall is so cool. He proceeds to to talk to us about video games he played at the arcade (suggesting some that we might like), asks if we have kids and then attempts to guess what we both do for work. We ended up by coincidence, in the same showing for the movie as his Grandma and him. He was pretty thrilled that we were seeing the same one.

That little interaction really put into perspective just how interconnected we all are and how impacted each of has been with being so cooped up. Also it put a huge smile on both our faces, reminding us just how much we want to be parents.

As children of the 1980s there was nothing better than to wake up Saturday mornings, make a bowl of cereal and sit in front of the tv all morning watching our favorite cartoons. With the rise of streaming platforms we are able to watch some of those cartoons and shows that we loved as kids. We recently signed up with Disney + and one of the first things we did was look for shows that we watched as kids. We watched old episodes of Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers, Kim Possible, Duck Tales, Lizzie McGuire and That's So Raven, just to name a few. It was fun to watch and reminisce about our early years. It's funny how much you remember of the episodes; including being able to sing the theme songs. 

This past weekend Jason and I streamed the new Punky Brewster and watched the original show on peacock. I loved Punky Brewster as a kid, I loved her spunk , style and positive outcome. Punky didn't let the fact that she was a foster child define who she was and instead she used it as a teachable moment. In the new series she's a grown woman with adopted and foster children of her own and once again showing that love makes a family. 

We can't wait to show our little one some of the shows that we grew up with while also watching some of the new shows as well. Afterall, aren't we all just big kids?

Last week was a really good week. For starters, our profile went live and we are finally on our journey to baby. It also started with Valentines day. Even though Jason had to work we still tried to find a way to celebrate. The morning started with making heart shaped strawberry chocolate chip pancakes and even though we said no gifts, Jason still surprised me with roses. Since Jason had to work we ended up going to dinner Monday evening to one of favorite places, Texas Roadhouse. Then the snow came. We ended up getting roughly eight inches of snow overnight. It's times like these that I am thankful that I am working from home so I don't have to venture out if I don't have to and luckily Jason was off too.  I don't think when he took the time off that he envisioned that he would have spent it fixing the garage door and snow plowing the driveway. :) I love the time that we get to spend together so it was nice having him home with me all day, even though I was still working.  The week ended with a facetime call with our little neices and nephew. We are so thankful for technology, especially in this covid era, as it allows us to still see and interact with them. They are growing so much and we can't wait til we can see them in person again.
