Jen & Jack
– California –
We are Jack and Jen, a married couple in the California Bay Area and enjoy our vacation home in Lake Tahoe as often as we can. In fact, that’s where our love story began 13 years ago. We’ve been married 8 years and have a 4-year-old son who we adopted at birth from Knoxville, TN.
While we have not met, we know the decision you are making takes remarkable bravery and strength and we are truly grateful to you for considering us as adoptive parents to your baby. We’ve always wanted to be parents and, though it has been a difficult and long road, we realize that we have been waiting for the right child to come into our lives and make our family complete through open adoption. We hope that we are the parents you are dreaming of!!
Jen is really fun to be around. I’m not just saying that as her happy husband but her friends and family would agree. As the oldest of 4 siblings she has grown up being the organizer and
coordinator. She is a connector of people across an array of social, cultural, professional and
economic circles. In her career she has provided hundreds of people with jobs as a recruiter in
San Francisco. I also love how Jen can adapt to any situation.
Being married to Jack has been the biggest and most important part of my life. I love seeing him smile and laugh and singing along to songs stumbling on words and making up his own. Jack is an amazing person, husband, father, friend, brother, uncle, son and god-father. Jack is my gentle Giant with a heart bigger than himself. What I admire most about Jack is that he is genuine and good hearted and always has the best of intentions. He has the most inviting personality that establishes trust immediately just by his twinkling eyes, loving heart and warm hugs. Our children will be fortunate to have a father that constantly shows affection and lets them know how important they are. He is very hands on and loves being a dad!
We are a house full of laughter, love and lots and lots of hugs. We believe every day should start and end with a hug and kiss and that has been our daily ritual. Jack goes to work very early but never leaves without a hug and kiss goodbye and greets Jen and Jack Jr. with big bear hugs and forehead/cheeks/nose/eye kisses when he returns.
We live in a 3 bedroom home over-looking views of the Mt. Diablo. Our neighborhood is known as small family friendly community and is highly desired by parents with children. We love going for walks after dinner and picnicking at the park next door on the weekends. Our home is central to everything. We consider ourselves lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful location next to many attractions.
