About Us/Me

 We are Dave and Jamie Stoneman! We went to high school together and later re-met as adults and married in 2013.  Thank you for reading our profile.  We weren’t sure of how to write this, could we show our compassion or love of life in 500 words? Would our strong marriage shine in just a few paragraphs?

About Us/Me

 We are Dave and Jamie Stoneman! We went to high school together and later re-met as adults and married in 2013.  Thank you for reading our profile.  We weren’t sure of how to write this, could we show our compassion or love of life in 500 words? Would our strong marriage shine in just a few paragraphs? We want to be a good fit for you, but true to ourselves too!  More importantly than our job titles or hobbies (although we will gladly list those things), we are happy people with a good marriage, balanced life and a strong support group of family and friends.  We are practical people who are fully committed to each other and our loved ones, who understand that life is not always perfect, but that there is joy to be found. Jamie is a Registered Nurse in a busy downtown hospital Emergency room where she works 3 days a week.  She loves her job and can’t ever imagine not being a nurse and serving her community.  She is passionate about living life to the fullest and loves to cook, refinish old furniture, hike and is an avid reader. (She’s currently refinishing an old dresser for the nursery!) Dave currently works as an Infrastructure Manager in IT for Victoria’s secret.  His job gives him a lot of availability to learn and create new things as well as work from home and change his schedule as needed for family time.  Dave is calm, quiet and thoughtful; he really likes to make sure his loved ones are cared for.  He enjoys robotics, woodworking, hiking and camping.   We live in the suburbs of Grove City; we currently share our home with a dog (Fergie) and three cats (Jello, Leo, and Frankie). Our neighborhood is full of kids of all ages and is close to parks and fun things to do.   We love trips to the zoo (Dave’s sister has a degree in Zoology!). We also enjoy going to hocking hills and various other parks for hiking and kayaking. Festivals and art shows are also a favorite way to spend time as well as quiet movie nights at home.    Both our families live close to us. Dave’s parents and Jamie’s mom are retired, but very active which leads to lots of family time.  Jamie’s younger brother is married with 3 kids, and Dave’s younger sister is married. Jamie’s dad is a chef and the whole family loves a good meal together. Both our moms are master crafters; they can make anything and are excited to do crafts with our little one.  Dave’s dad can fix anything and enjoys teaching us all to be handier. We have always wanted to adopt, however we did try to have children by birth too. We have friends that were adopted or adopted children themselves and they have been an amazing support group and helped us realize that our dream of being parents was reachable.
