Jesseca & Derek
– Indiana –
Hello! We are Derek and Jesseca and are so excited to become parents! We are a lighthearted, happy couple who love to spend time with family, go to baseball games, and hang out with our dogs at home. Jesseca is a former teacher who currently works with children with autism at a clinic. Derek is a senior maintenance technician. We live in an old home and enjoy doing home projects together.
We met in college and our relationship blossomed quickly. We have been married for 6 years. We are truly each other's best friend. Our relationship has always been strong and each challenge we've faced has only deepened our connection. Derek is financially savvy and a dependable husband. Jesseca makes it her priority to care for her family. She does a lot of cooking, planning, and caring of others.
BY DEREK: Jesseca is the type of girl that you meet and cannot stop talking to. Within the first five minutes of meeting her, I could sense her kind heart and loved her contagious, non-stop smile. Jesseca is a natural caregiver and will do anything for anyone regardless of what sacrifices she has to make. The way she has made a career out of caring for children in many different capacities is truly remarkable! She is a fun, outgoing partner and we have spent tons of time together enjoying ourselves and our experiences. If you could make a “perfect mom” in a lab, Jesseca would be the human coming out of the petri dish! I look forward to many happy years as a parent with her.
BY JESSECA: Derek is the funniest yet most serious guy you'll ever meet. He is thoughtful and detail oriented and a bit of a clean freak. Derek has always been a strong leader and works hard to ensure that our family is secure. He knows when to make me laugh and tells jokes all the time! He is the first person I want to talk to when I've have a bad day or when I have good news to share. He is able to be logical and calm even during tough times. Derek is a problem solver and does so much for our little family. Derek's fun loving personality has made him a great uncle and will make him an even better father!
Our home is well established and in a great, diverse neighborhood. We are within walking distance to many schools, parks, local restaurants, and shops. We have a fenced in backyard with a small garden, patio, and lots of room to play. Our home has three bedrooms and one bathroom. We recently remodeled our kitchen and are always finding projects to do!
Our nursery is ready with a crib and lots of toys and books. Derek even built the dresser and changing table in the nursery. The room is neutral for now and we can't wait to personalize it someday!
Our two dogs, Flynn and Fletcher, are small in size, great with kids, and add a lot of fun to our lives. They are 10 months old and 2 years old and are both Havanese.
