We Will Meet You Someday
You Are the Answer to Our Prayers
We are Darren and Jennifer and we are very excited at the possibility of being given the absolute blessing and ultimate responsibility of raising a child. We cannot even imagine nor do we pretend to understand the brevity of the decision you have made in considering adoption. Your sacrifice personifies strength and selflessness, a truly remarkable and admirable choice. We look and hope to build off of your selfless sacrifice and emulate it by taking what you have started and continuing forward with it in the most honorable and loving way possible.
Although adoption will be an answer to our prayers, we pray that we may be an answer to yours. We want you to know that you will always have a special place in our hearts and in our family. We promise that we will do everything we can to honor you in raising this child in a loving home. We promise to love, protect and nurture this child so he or she may achieve any dream. We will do everything in our power to provide our children with every possible opportunity to explore their talents and reach their goals.
- Our Adoption Profile
Visit our adoption profile to learn more about us.
Before we ever got married, we knew that one day we would be parents. We even bought parenting books and discussed names we would choose for our future children. We always planned on having children, and couldn't wait to grow our family. After we got married, we tried for many years to have biological children of our own (both naturally and assisted by fertility professionals). We believe that our trials took place for a reason, which led us to our real purpose in life, adoption. We know there is a birth mother or birth family who is making the tough decision to place a newborn for adoption. We have so much love to give and a very supportive family to offer a child. We would raise our future child in a nurturing, loving home and provide them with an unlimited amount of opportunities to ensure they become happy, healthy and responsible adults.
You could say we met in a very unique way. Darren's sister was a student of Jennifer's in the school that we went to as children ourselves. We actually sat next to each other in homeroom. 15 or so years went by, and with different education paths, we lost touch. On the last day of Darren's sisters school year, she made Darren pick her up at school to meet someone who he knew from many years ago, Jennifer. We have been together ever since. We are a fun loving couple, and are each other's best friend as well. We love spending time with our young nephews, watching them grow up and learn new things.
We are extremely excited to become parents. We cannot wait to build a family and create lasting memories with our child, from staying up all night to sooth our child’s tears to hearing our child’s first words. Every moment with our child will be treasured. Our dream is to raise a family and give our children everything they need to succeed in life from infancy to adulthood.
Jennifer is gentle and compassionate, focused and dedicated. She has an amazing knack for having fun with children. She is my wife and my life! She looks at every day with passion and enjoys every moment like it's the best moment ever. She goes way beyond what's expected to make family and friends feel special whether she's entertaining, going on family outings, or celebrating their birthdays. Friends and family love gatherings decorated by Jennifer because of all the attention to detail to make it special. Growing up, Jennifer taught swimming lessons and provided childcare. She is an assistant principal in a Kindergarten through third grade elementary school building. She loves visiting new places and learning about it's history and culture; no matter how near or far. She looks forward to sharing those experiences with our child. I can't wait to see her in action! Jennifer will be taking time away from school when a baby arrives.
I Like to say that Darren always has a twinkle in his eye! Darren is a fun loving, generous and caring person. His special interests are biking, surfing, exercise, and is pretty handy around the house. He is a great cook and never ceases to amaze me in taking an ordinary dish and putting a new spin on it to, not only be healthy, but to be very tasty as well. Growing up, Darren played the saxophone and continues to play today with other musical family members. Darren is a chiropractor and has a passion for really caring for and helping people. He loves being around children who think of him as a "fun grown-up". I know he will be a wonderful father for a child. It is nice that Darren's office is only 5 miles away.
Our Hobbies & Interests
Jen is not only an educator but it is her passion in life. She enjoys collecting children's books, playing with our nephews and helping to show and teach them different life experiences. She enjoys relaxing days at the beach, biking and exercise, going on road trips with the family and making Cracker Barrel stops, motivational reading, decorating for all sorts of holidays from Christmas to Shark Week (Discovery Channel event in the summer). She enjoys cozy winter nights fireside in the house and hot summer nights on the beach building bonfires and making smores.
Darren lives and loves a healthy and wellness-focused lifestyle being a chiropractor. He has a passion for biking, surfing, and fitness training as well as training others. He also enjoys those Cracker Barrel family events as well as beach bonfires and winter fireside relaxation. He loves backyard grilling and entertaining. During Christmas season, he loves gathering the family after dinner and playing Christmas carols on the saxophone. I can see the love for children in his eye when he takes his nephews on tractor rides around the property.
