A Letter from Adam & JoLynn
Thank you for getting to know us more! We are eagerly waiting and excited to add another child, twins, or sibling group to our family! Being parents to Jasmine has been one of the greatest joys of our lives. The three of us are excited to nurture a baby with love and snuggles. We know we will love your child as our own, we will unconditionally love them and give them our best. We would be so honored to meet you, and get to know you too. As we have already adopted one child, we have had the amazing opportunity to visit Jasmine’s birthparents and family on multiple occasions. We love them, and support each other. We will honor your wishes with future contact, and again thank you so much for considering us.
We met in middle school, fell in love, and have been together ever since. We still have a very playful, passionate, and fun relationship. We respect each other and have built our relationship around the love of Christ. We also love to kayak, swim, watch our daughter play sports, and hang out on our hobby farm around the house jumping on the trampoline, playing in the sandbox, and watching our animals. We are so excited to help your child/children grow into the best version of themselves. As a family, we try to see where each person thrives, such as art, music, education, sports, or other talents, and then encourage and make opportunities to encourage and grow in those areas. For example, JoLynn likes music, so she is taking online vocal lessons. Adam loves to hunt, so he takes some extra days off for a hunting weekend with his father and brother. Jasmine loves dance so we travel a longer distance for her favorite dance studio. (The real secret is that there is an ice cream shop attached, ha ha) And as our family grows, we will be attentive to what our next children thrive in; and look for opportunities special for them.
JoLynn has more love and compassion in a single finger than most people possess. She truly demonstrates the heart of God by the way she cares for others no matter her relationship with them. JoLynn loves to take our daughter to the park, to sports, and out swimming with her friends. Her creativity can also be seen in everything she does from her music at church, her photography, painting, puzzles, and the silly voices she makes as she reads stories to Jasmine at bedtime. JoLynn is an amazing mother. (From Adam)
I think about the beautiful opportunity and honor it will be to raise more children, there is nothing more important than loving children, and raising them in a safe home where they can feel comfortable to be their silly and lovable selves! I am so grateful you are taking this time to get to know us more. I truly look forward to the day when we can welcome more children into our lives, and shower them with the forever love they deserve. As their birthmother, you will always be so important, valued, and loved by us as well. (From JoLynn)
Adam is loved by many and knows how to make everyone feel special by listening to them, as he is the Pastor of our small-town church. He is patient, truly cares for others, and sets aside time to help others in need. He understands hardship and is very down-to-earth, reliable, and easy to relate to. He loves to hunt; however, he spends more time making sure the deer have food and a nice home on our land. He loves to read, take care of our cows and goats, and explore our land. Adam is the best dad; he is like a gentle teddy bear, one who keeps everyone he loves safe and secure. He is focused when spending time with our daughter and she just loves her daddy so much! He is game for being the alligator or tiger, whatever Jasmine wants him to be while they play. He is looking forward to taking our future child on hikes through the woods.
We moved into our home about 9 years ago and LOVE living here. Our yard is full of fun with a playset, fenced in play area, goats, a few cows, and a stunning view that connects to a beautiful walking trail. We live just south of town where we can access anything we need, for parks, schools, and other daily events, however we live in a quiet and relaxing country home. The people in our small town are friendly, excepting, and we have everything at our fingertips.
We have a Goldendoodle named Ivy who loves to snuggle, and is a loving dog with the sweetest personality. We live within 30 -45 minutes of both of our parents, they both are very involved in Jasmine’s life, and are really excited to add more grandchildren.
We adopted Jasmine when she was just 1 1/2 days old. She has truly been a joy in our lives. Jasmine is energetic, intelligent, and certainly in the “big sister” preparation mode. She is already discussing what she will share with her sibling (or siblings) and that she wants to buy them things, and to help take care of them.
We have many friends with adopted children so Jasmine and our next child will thrive in a very understanding and supportive environment. Our families are both very involved and supportive. JoLynn comes from a large very close family, and Adam is from a small, tight-knit family and we see them all often. Adam’s parents attend our church and JoLynn works with her mom. Both sets of grandparents babysit when needed and have an amazing relationship with Jasmine. We love to have family game nights, go shopping together, and have slumber parties with cousins! All of the cousins like to rollerblade, so the skating rink is a fun place to meet!
All three of us are thrilled and ready to welcome another child, twins, or sibling group into our family. We promise to always put our children’s needs before ours. We promise to love them fully and unconditionally. We will provide them with the best education path and will provide them with schooling that fits their personal needs. We will give them a safe environment, both physically and emotionally, and allow them to grow into the best version of themselves. We look forward to spending time together at home, eating popcorn and snuggles during movie nights, playground visits, fishing, adventures with family and friends, going to church, and traveling during vacations with them! We will fill their life with a balance of downtime and adventures on a daily basis. We are praying for you and your child or children.

|Some of Adam & JoLynn's Favorites|
|Favorite Vacation||When we went to visit Jasmine's birthparents in FL when she was 2; watching Jasmine play in the ocean for the first time was amazing.||Going to FL to adopt Jasmine was amazing because we met and fell in love with her immediately. The week we spent there was so bonding for us, and just special in every way.|

|Mini day trip or overnight trip||Going to the lake, swimming and grilling out.

|More About Our Family|
Our passion is really to serve God and others, and honestly find that we are better versions of ourselves when we focus on other people and serve them. We balance that with things that we love ourselves which is outdoor life, and hunting for Adam, and taking time to do creative things for JoLynn.
Our relationship with God is what keeps us grounded at our home, and we both serve in our church regularly. There is nothing more important to us than the Lord. And by loving Jesus more deeply, experiencing His love and mercy we are able to be more loving to each other and those around us.
|Our Home Environment|
We try our best to provide a safe environment at home, where we all can relax and unwind. So we have a no yelling rule, and we do not raise our voice if angry to each other. As Adam is the youth pastor at church, he hears stories of kids not having a home they feel safe in, or they are anxious at home, so a home where we all feel secure and find peaceful is important. We also researched a dog that is a good therapy and emotional support dog, and so she cuddles us when we are sick if needed. She is playful yet relaxed based on what we are doing.
|More About our Daughter and Adoption|
We adopted Jasmine when she was 1 1/2 days old. We have been blessed to have her amazing birth parents in our lives. We send them photos every holiday and have a very positive relationship with them. We are open with Jasmine about her adoption and birth family, it has been a very positive, loving experience. We have traveled to visit with them before and are open to discussing whatever level of contact you are comfortable with. Jasmine is hispanic caucasian, and her birthfather is from Ecuador. She loves to watch Curious George in Spanish, and we support her learning about her heritage.
