Leah & Jason

Hoping to Adopt (New Jersey)


Our Promises

There are some important things we want you to know. When we become parents, we will always have our child's best interest at heart and do our best to build a healthy foundation for life to come. Our situation is such that one of us will be able to stay home with the baby through early childhood. Learning is important in our home and educational pursuits will be supported by us financially and emotionally. We will pay for as much college as we can, if that's the path this child wants to take. We will encourage them to be an independent thinker and make good decisions. We will do our best to prepare this child for the good things and the bad things that can happen. With our life experiences, we feel we are well equipped to be positive and nurturing parents, but we promise to keep an open mind in this ever-changing world. We can also promise a lot of silliness and laughter! If it turns out that you decide to place this child in our hands, we promise to honor you in our home. If involvement and open communication is what you want, we will be on board wholeheartedly. While it is difficult to summarize ourselves in this profile, we hope this gives you some insight into what our life looks like and what's in our hearts. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a bit about us!


We love to travel! Since we got together, we have had many adventures and gone to several U.S. states and a couple different countries. We like to really get to know a place and experience its culture and local cuisine. We've explored caves in West Virginia and ancient ruins in Oaxaca, Mexico. We've seen the vast beauty of the Nevada desert and the lush environment of the Costa Rican rainforest. But we don't just take big vacations. There are lots of neat places relatively close and we take a lot of day trips. We will continue to travel and learn about this big world as much as we can.

Our Home & Pets

Our farmhouse is located in a semi-rural area. There are farms nearby yet plenty of families and kids. We are under thirty minutes from a major city and one hour from the ocean. It is the perfect setting for us because we have easy access to the culture of the city while surrounded by nature. Our home is a fun and cozy place. We listen to music a lot. There are tons of records and books a child would have access to. Jason also has many different musical instruments a child could learn to play. There is a large garden in our big backyard. We grow many kinds of vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers. The community we live in has an excellent school system. Our friends love to come visit, and they often say how much they enjoy being at our house. We live with a sweetheart senior dog named Otto, and an affectionate middle-aged cat named DeeDee. They are total goofballs and give us a lot of laughs. You should see Otto eat corn on the cob! Pets are a big part of our family and we plan to always have them in our home.
