All About Jessica by Brad

Jessica has been in my heart since I was a teenager. In fact, I often wonder how I ever lived without her. She has always demonstrated the ability to be compassionate to others and creative in her own way. Jessica has a heart of gold and the ability to empathize with all of her family and friends. She is an amazing mom. Whether it is preparing homemade organic food or attending mommy and me classes, she will always make time for our children. Jessica will teach our children to be independent thinkers and reach for any star or goal they want to achieve. She will always be the best mother I know.

About Us

We met many years ago while we were both in high school and developed a great friendship that has lasted as we built our lives together. Shortly after college, Brad proposed on New Year’s Eve and a year later we were married on one of our favorite beaches in California. While having experienced both exciting and challenging times, we have built a strong, trusting partnership that we look forward to sharing with our children. In January 2011, our daughter, Kennedy, entered our lives through an open adoption. She has brought us so much happiness! We have so much love to share, and we can’t wait to welcome our next child into our home!

Where We Work

We are both fortunate to have careers that we enjoy very much and employers who are very supportive as we build our family. Jessica works for a cosmetics company as the Vice President of Business Development, where she has the flexibility to work from home when necessary and ample vacation time. Her co-workers are all parents and understand the value of family time and that home life is the most important aspect to a successful career. Brad works for an internet technology company as the Director of Sales. He works from home and has a flexible schedule that will allow him to participate in school activities or run errands for our family.

Our Journey into Adoption

We feel fortunate that Kennedy will always know she is loved by her birth family and they will always be able to to watch her grow up through visits, pictures and videos. We often share with Kennedy the wonderful story of how we became a family. We continue to have a great relationship with her birthmother and believe that open adoption has truly been the experience of a lifetime. We look forward to creating a connection with you and your family, and welcome whatever level of contact you would like to have with your child.

Our Passions In Life

We are adventurous and active, and love spending time with our friends and family. Whether it is a trip to a local museum or our once-in-a-lifetime trip to Africa, we love to explore new things. We can’t wait to take our children on trips to learn about different cultures around the world. We are passionate about running and together have participated in over a dozen half-marathons in big and small cities around the United States.

All About Brad by Jessica

Brad has been an inspiration in my life since the first day I met him twenty years ago. He is always thinking of new ideas and is a naturally joyful, energetic person. Children have always made Brad truly happy. He has a unique way of connecting with kids of all ages whether it is playing a game, reading a book, or helping them with their homework. Brad was a kindergarten teacher before we were engaged and I had a chance to see his positive influence on young children. He is a wonderful, hands-on father who is eager to feed, change, and read to our children every day. Brad is my best friend, the person I trust the most in my life. I can’t wait to experience the joys of parenthood with him again!
