About Us/Me

Hello and welcome to… JAMIE AND PAUL!  We are so happy that you are viewing our profile.

We met 5 years ago, and it was pretty much love at first sight.  Jamie was living in Los Angeles and Paul was living in New York City, and we met through a mutual friend on a trip to Asheville, NC.  (It’s a pretty amazing and crazy story, but we’ll save the longer version for later).   We spent the first 6 months of our relationship living on separate coasts, but drove cross country together right before Christmas in 2014 and chose to create a life together. Our jobs have moved us around the country, but we have finally settled in Ohio just outside of Cleveland.  We live in a beautiful town surrounded by a luscious green national park and waterfalls.  Paul is a professor at a university and teaches acting and theatre, and Jamie works for a documentary film festival. 

We both grew up loving acting and the arts and have spent much of our lives dedicated to learning about ourselves and the world around us through theater and storytelling.  Acting, dancing, painting, playing musical instruments, singing, and anything arts related is a big focus in our family and we will encourage our little one to be as creative as she/he desires.  We also love being in nature, and Jamie spent many years working for non-profit organizations that help protect and preserve the environment.  We want to teach our child from an early age how important it is to take care of the environment and animals around them, and we will continue to do what we can to protect the planet for the next generation and for our child’s children.  We love to volunteer and help out in the community and want to raise our child to know that being of service and being kind are two of the most important attributes for a person to have.

We’ve always known that we wanted to have children, long before we met each other.  We’ve been so fortunate to have been surrounded by amazing nieces, nephews, and super awesome kids in our lives.  We’ve been working on creating our family ever since we met.  Along the way we have experienced great joy as well as great heartache and loss.  But also along the way, we have built up a strong community (it takes a village, after all), and between the two of us (and our cute little pup, Leo) we’ve already created a loving, generous, and beautiful family.  There’s just one piece missing.  We cannot wait to welcome a child into our lives and provide them with support, acceptance, strength, laugher, fun, happiness, adventure, and unconditional love.  We believe that every child deserves this in their life.

While we’ve taken on many amazing roles in our lives, what we’ve come to truly realize is that we’ve been practicing and waiting all this time to take on our most important roles ever – the mother and father of a beautiful child.  We cannot wait to begin this greatest of adventures. 

 

About You

We of course can’t imagine what you must be going through at this time.  All we can say is that we already love and respect you more than you know.  Something has led you to this page, and we are so grateful that you are looking at our profile and considering us to parent your child.

You are so strong, so beautiful, and so loving to make the decision to give this little one the best life possible.  We want you to know that we not only want to provide a loving home for this child, but we would also like to create a relationship with you (should you wish).

Laughter, love, and so much light will fill our home, and you will be giving us the greatest gift.  We are beyond excited to be parents, and we can’t wait to meet the little one that will make our family complete.  We have waited so long to be parents, so long to share our lives and all the love that we have to give.  Your choosing us would be our greatest honor.  This baby will be surrounded by so much love and gratitude (and will be able to snuggle with the sweetest puppy in the whole world).  We promise to commit our lives to providing this baby with the best home and greatest life possible.  Thank you for who you are, what you are bringing to this world, and for possibly choosing us to be the parents of your child.
