Letters

Hi, we are Seth and Jennifer! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our story with you and learn about us as prospective parents.



We met through Seth's sister. Our first date was dinner and the movie The Avengers. Unknown to Jennifer it was also Seth's birthday. It has been fun to celebrate Seth's birthday and our first date each year by going to a Marvel movie.



After dating for eighteen months, we were married in 2014. Our wedding was a very happy occasion for our family and friends. It was one of the best days of our lives, and we have enjoyed continuing to grow together.



We were eager to start a family right away but were unsuccessful. After some time and several medical procedures, we learned that we would not be able to have children of our own. We are grateful for the miracle of adoption and the opportunity it has given us to fulfill our dreams of parenthood.



Adopting our daughter, Olivia, has been the greatest blessing of our lives. We are excited to begin the wonderful journey to give Olivia a sibling and bring another precious child into our family.

Seth is my rock and my best friend. I was first drawn to Seth because of the special relationship he has with his nieces and nephews. 



Seth is a gentle, compassionate person who is always willing to help others. He works as a site reliability engineer and has consequently become the go-to computer guy in our family. He patiently works with each of them to help figure out the problems they are experiencing.



Seth loves to cook and spoil me with my favorites, BBQ ribs, and shrimp alfredo. He enjoys sharing his cooking talent with those around him. Seth also enjoys learning new things and traveling to new places. He loves to share these experiences with others.



It has been an amazing experience to watch Seth as a father. He revels in watching the excitement and joy on Olivia's face as we experience new things together. Seth and Olivia have the cutest bond. I love to hear Olivia giggling as she plays with her daddy. Olivia enjoys shoulder rides, reading books, playing in the yard, and taking walks with Seth.



Seth is truly one of the sweetest, caring men I know.  He is a wonderful father who cherishes every moment he spends with his family.

Jennifer is the love of my life and my best friend. She is caring, compassionate, and supportive. I feel so blessed to call her my wife.  Jennifer is always thinking of others and finding ways to make them happy. One year for my birthday she surprised me with a basket full of San Diego Chargers items. It was a simple gift, but one that required thought, and it touched my heart.



Jennifer has always worked very hard for our family, whether she's working at her job or home taking care of our daughter, Olivia. Even when faced with challenges, she finds a way to get things done, and everything works out perfectly.



Jennifer is a wonderful mother. She is always with Olivia helping her learn and making her laugh.  I love the beautiful bond they share. Olivia is often following her and helping her, whether in the kitchen making yummy treats or outside watering the flowers.

Our daughter, Olivia, was born in 2019. She has filled our hearts from the moment we laid eyes on her and held her in our arms. Her addition to our family has been the biggest and best blessing of our lives. Olivia’s sweet smile brightens each day, and we enjoy watching her learn and grow. 



Olivia enjoys running and playing outside, especially at the park. She has a smile, wave, and “hi” for everyone. Her sweet and loving personality draws you in from the moment you meet her. Olivia loves animals - birds and dogs are some of her favorites.



Olivia’s kind, caring, and attentive disposition will make her a wonderful big sister. We know Olivia’s loving personality, in addition to her being adopted, will make her an amazing sister.

 

Favorite Things:




  • Reading books – She loves books!

  • Taking walks

  • Playing at the park

  • Dancing and music

  • Shoulder rides from daddy

  • Animals

     

We built our home in 2016 with a family in mind. We have a large loft upstairs which is perfect as a playroom and an ideal place to relax and read stories. We can usually be found in our kitchen cooking together, in our living room watching movies, or outside working in our yard or barbequing. We enjoy decorating our home for the holidays as do many of our neighbors.



We live in a great neighborhood. Many children in the area love playing together. We live close to schools, parks, and walking trails. Our community is growing but still has a small town feel.



We are actively involved in our church. We have had the opportunity to serve in a variety of capacities. Working with children and the youth have been our favorite experiences. We have a wonderful support system in our neighborhood, and our church, who are very supportive of adoption.

Our family is very important to us. Our parents love being grandparents and adore their grandchildren. Seth is the youngest of his family and has three older sisters. Jennifer is the oldest of five children.



Some of our siblings live out of state, but we have enjoyed the opportunity to travel to visit them and their children. We love to spend time with our nieces and nephews, and Olivia loves playing with her cousins.  Holidays and family reunions are special times that we enjoy being together. Our extended family is diverse with multiple different backgrounds and ethnicities.



Our family is very supportive of us and the miracle of adoption. Our nieces and nephews are excited for another new cousin, friend, and playmate.

We enjoy spending time together taking walks, watching movies, playing games, working on home projects and experiencing new things. We are excited for another child to join us in our hobbies and adventures!




  • We have an annual family Halloween party with costumes and spooky treats. It is so much fun!

  • We enjoy spending time on lakes and rivers fishing with grandpa or kayaking/paddle boarding.

  • We live close to the mountains and enjoy hiking and exploring the many beautiful scenic areas.

  • We love to tour museums, zoos, aquariums, parks, botanical gardens, and other fun places of interest when traveling or visiting a new city. 

  • We enjoy cooking together as a family. A favorite tradition is to try new dishes while we travel and then recreate them at home.

Dear friend,



Thank you for taking a moment to get to know a little about our family and considering us as prospective parents.



We know you are making a difficult decision, but we want to thank you for bringing this beautiful child into the world. We consider it an honor and privilege that you might think of us to care for such a precious gift.



Your child would not only have a home but our hearts. Our desire to add to our family is strong, and we have been preparing for this moment for a long time. We will provide a happy and safe home full of love, nurturing, and kindness. Your child will be supported and accepted as we guide them along life's journey.



We want your child's adoption to be a natural part of his or her life. Just as we send Olivia's birth mother and family photos and updates, we would love to do the same for you. Regardless of the level of openness you choose, we will always let your child know what a special person you are. Your love and sacrifice allowed for something we could not achieve on our own.



May you find peace, comfort, and direction in this process. We pray for you and your child's health. And although we have not met, we do have one thing in common, and that is to give this child the best life possible.



Seth and Jennifer
