Hello! We are Ryan, Jennifer and Liam (so far!) and we are excited to discover who God adds to our family through adoption. Our hearts go out to you as you make what is likely a very difficult decision and even though we've never met, we already admire you. You are strong, loving and brave to be planning what is best for your child, even though it may be hard for you. Whether you choose us or not, just know that you are being thought of and prayed for. Adoption has always held a very special place in our hearts. Ryan has an adopted sister and brother, both of whom we are very close to. We also have an adopted niece and several friends who have embraced adoption as a way to grow their families as well. We understand the need to be aware and sensitive to the feelings that a child may about their adoption but we’ve also seen first-hand that there is absolutely no difference in the love felt or given toward biological and adopted children. We will love our adopted child as our very own, while still respecting where and who he or she came from. As you review our profile, hopefully you will catch a glimpse of who we are and what life with us would be like. We are a loving family and a solid couple who wants to provide another child with all the love and support they need to flourish in life. We aren't perfect and just like most people, we've certainly had struggles along the way, but we are committed to each other and know that we can get through all of life's trials and triumphs as long as we stay close to God and one another. We don’t take these decisions lightly – both your decision to find a loving home for your baby and ours to grow our family in this very special way. The sacrifice you are making will never be lost on us. Your child will always know their story and that his or her first mama has so much love for them. Thank you again and may God bless you along this journey! Love, Jennifer and Ryan

More About Our Family

Whether we are traveling somewhere on a family trip or right here at home, life is always an adventure. Adn whatever we're doing, whether near or far, we're just happy to be doing it together! We live in a spacious and comfortable two-story, four bedroom house with a large backyard that has lots of room to run and play. We currently have two guest rooms but hope to turn one into a nursery in the future! Our family and home joyfully awaits a new baby and we already have all of the necessities a newborn could possibly need. We've got an added bonus with Jennifer's parents living right around the corner. Gran and Grandpa's house is such a welcoming and child-friendly environment with tons of books, games and toys to play with. We feel blessed to be able to see them almost every day and to have another place to call home. We are thankful to live in a very family-oriented neighborhood where there are plenty of children and families. We love getting together with friends so the kiddos (and adults!) can hang out. Within walking distance from our home we have an awesome playground, a pool, tennis and basketball courts, a soccer field, several ponds for fishing and a dock for boating, swimming or just sitting and watching the sunset. We live in an excellent school district where there are so many opportunities for children to learn and thrive. We have several parks we frequent around town and we love living near the beach too! We really couldn’t ask for a better community to raise our family in. We feel very fortunate to live where we do, with wonderful friends, family and neighbors. It has been awesome to see how people really come together to support one another in our town and we couldn't imagine living anywhere else.

About Ryan

More About Ryan

I always knew Ryan was a good man but seeing him become a father made me respect and love him even more. He’s wonderful with kids and that is one of the things I really admire about him. He has so much patience and loves to play, be silly, to teach, to listen and to guide. He’s a very involved daddy and has been that way through each stage of our son’s life and will do the same for our future child as well. From changing diapers and doing feedings in the early years to making special waffles on Saturday mornings and playing outside with Liam after work, Ryan is there every single step of the way. He does bedtime stories and prayers at night too! He truly does put family before everything and makes us feel so loved and safe. Ryan is the most solid and loyal person I know. He is such a tenderhearted yet strong man. His work ethic is outstanding and he has worked hard to get where he is now as Vice President of his company. Ryan takes pride in everything he does whether it’s managing his team and projects at the office, conducting a super cool science experiment with Liam, doing yard work or grilling out for friends and family on the weekend. If he commits to something, he always keeps his word, follows through and does a great job! From the moment our first child came into our lives, I’ve seen Ryan’s heart grow exponentially and I know beyond a shadow of doubt that his love will expand even more for the next child we’re blessed with. Like my own father, he truly is such a good man and I’m so grateful to God for giving him to us.

About Jennifer

More About Jennifer

Jennifer is the anchor in our family. When we met more than 10 years ago through mutual friends I immediately fell in love with her infectious spirit and kind and gentle nature. She is devout in her Catholic faith and devoted to her family, especially Liam, me and her wonderful parents. She continues to impress me with her dedication, loyalty and love for everyone around her - friends, family and strangers alike. I knew back then that she was the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with and am grateful she said yes! Now as my wife, she supports me and builds me up, but keeps me in check too. Her laugh is contagious and I enjoy being with her when she is at her silliest. Watching her play and care for our son, Godchildren, nieces, nephews and even our friends’ children is simply the best. She truly is an awesome soul and I love her beyond measure. After several years as a marketing executive and a job she flourished in, we decided to give the stay-at-home-mom gig a shot. She has embraced and excelled in this role as a mother, wife, superstar caregiver and and substitute teacher at Liam's preschool. A genuinely selfless person, she puts everyone and everything about our family first. She loves unconditionally and is as generous an individual as they come. Her friends are her family as well and there is not one (of too many to count) that has not had their life affected by her in a positive way. Jennifer's commitment to God and the people in her life is unwavering and I’m so happy I get to be by her side as we do this life together.
