Adoptive family.

Dear Birthparent(s),

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about our family. We pray for you often as you make future plans for your child. We honor and celebrate whatever decision you make and hope that our paths might be united along the way.

We are Jeremy and Crista. We met in college at Ohio State and got married January 16, 2015. Jeremy works at our church full-time as the Worship and Creative Arts Director. Crista is a Registered Nurse at the James Cancer Hospital. We love living in Hilliard, Ohio and exploring Columbus. Some of our favorite hobbies include trying new restaurants, checking out local parks and playgrounds with our daughter, Lena, riding our bikes to downtown Hilliard for ice cream, and having friends and family over for game nights. Music is an important part of our family; we both play several instruments and sing. We also love to travel and experience new cities and cultures.

We love the outdoors.

We adopted our daughter Lena in 2019. She has brought us so much joy and we have loved learning to be parents. We believe adoption is a loving, beautiful, and brave choice and it is celebrated in our family. We are so excited to grow our family again through adoption and look forward to having an open relationship with a birth family.

Lena Joy is 2 years old and so much fun. She likes cuddling with her baby doll and stuffed animals, playing outside, and jumping on the couch. She is caring and compassionate and will be the best big sister. Lena keeps us very busy and we love every moment of playing with her and watching her learn and grow. She likes to help with whatever we are doing. Lena is smart and funny. She has been such a gift and blessing in our life and we are so excited to watch her bond with a sibling.

We are active in our church and have many close friends who we consider family. Several of our friends have adopted and have encouraged us in our adoption journey. Jeremy’s sister and brother-in-law are foster parents as well. We love adoption and are so excited to be growing our family through adoption again.

A favorite moment — sharing a cup of coffee.

We believe fully in open adoption and will strive to maintain a relationship with you and ensure that our child knows how much you love him or her.

We think of you often and pray for wisdom and clarity as you make an adoption plan for your child. We are humbled that you would take the time to learn more about our family.
