Heather & Jeff
This is “Us”
I have been at a complete loss of words, because I know that the decision you are making is gut wrenching and selfless. Please know that we want you to make the best decision for you and your child. Jeff and I don’t have the perfect life, but honestly it is perfect to us. We were not high-school sweet hearts, and it wasn’t love at first sight. We met later in life, and neither of us had been married nor have children. We were friends, and had a mutual respect for one another. One day, that all changed, and I never knew loving someone could be so wonderful and easy. Don’t get me wrong, we have our good and bad days. However, we understand what compromise means, and we never go to bed angry. We honestly couldn’t ask for a better life, there’s just one thing missing.
The home we have prepared is warm, safe, and incredibly full of love. Jeff and I still believe in the importance of family dinners, respect for others, and good manners. We will move heaven and earth to make sure we instill an abundance of love, laughter, and joy in your child. Nothing would make us happier than to be “chosen” to raise your precious child.
Jeff and I actually met at the neighborhood pool where we used to live. We were friends before we ever dated. He was a friend I would talk to during the summer, and I even got to know his family. He was extremely kind and generous, and it wasn't till he invited me to a cook-out, that I suddenly realized he was "my forever". We are now hoping to add that tiny someone to our lives in order to complete our precious family.
Our home & family
Jeff and I moved into our new home three years ago. It's located in a great neighborhood, and it's actually minutes from where I grew up as a child. We have a huge playground, neighborhood pool, and children actually play outside on their scooters and bikes. We have done several projects since moving. Jeff is more handy than anyone I know, and we have enjoyed updating our home ourselves. Our happy place, and the space that gets the most use, is the screened in porch we had installed. It’s not uncommon for our family and friends to adjourn to the porch for a football game. It’s even more common to catch Jeff taking a cat nap with our fur babies on the porch.
Jeff and I love to travel and any beach will do! We love having our toes in the sand, and whether we are with his extended family or mine, it's always a good time. Jeff and I actually got married on the beach! We were surrounded by our 47 family members, and a few choice friends. It was the perfect day... so far. The next time we go to the beach, we are hoping to take a bassinet!
Jeff and I can't thank you enough for taking a look at our story. We are humbled that you are even considering us. The love that we have for one another is pure and unconditional. We simply want the opportunity to pour that love into a child. Our hearts are so full, and we will wait patiently for the perfect gift to complete and bless our lives.
