We are Jacob and Jim, we met online and we've been together for 11 amazing years. When Jim and I met we immediately hit it off. We take marriage seriously, so we lived together for many years before we married in 2011. Our wedding took place overlooking Niagara Falls in a joint ceremony with our two best friends. We have two rescue Chihuahuas Oliver (6) and Bella (7). Oliver came to us at 9 weeks old, he is a goofy playful little guy. He has never met a stranger and if you give him a treat he will be your best friend forever.
First off I would like to begin by saying Thank You, without you our dream of becoming a family would not be possible. We appreciate your decision to allow someone to care for and love this child, when they wouldnt otherwise have the chance. You may or may not think so, but you are amazing in our eyes. We hope that you have a support system to help you through this tough decision. I know Jim and I both have a support system in eachother as well as our families, so we couldn't imagine going through something so BIG without it. I'll give you a bigger glimpse into who we are. Simply put, we love eachother and spend all the time we can together.

She is the sweetest little girl once she knows she can trust you. She,however, took to Jim almost immediately. Bella has definitely made him her human. I (Jacob) am 34. I worked as a nurses assistant for 10 years before I decided to make a career move. Currently I am working as a cosmetologist in a salon and as a part-time cosmetology instructor. I love the social aspect of my job. I meet some great people in the community and I've made some incredible friends as a result. My hobbies include quilting, painting and home improvement. I obtained a science degree during my many years of college. I lingered there a long time taking every class I could, mostly because I love to learn new things. I am the oldest of 4. My sister is married and has one child. My brother is married and has one child and one on the way. My baby sister is coupled and has 2 children. Jim is is 45, he was in the Navy and learned how to be an electrician during his time of service. He currently works as a maintenance supervisor at a large manufacturing company. His hobbies include golfing, racing (as a spectator these days), cars and power tools. He spent a great deal of his life racing sprint cars professionally and he still talks about it all the time. He is the younger of two siblings. His brother is married and has one biological child and three step children. Jim's family lives just a few minutes from us. We do Sunday dinners at their house and get together every chance we get.Together Jim and I like to attend music concerts and stand up comedy shows. We both love to do home improvement projects together. We both love food, and going out to eat, trying out the resturants in and around our city. Both of our parents have been married 30 + years, we've been raised in homes with longevity in relationships and we've both had great childhoods. Our families are so excited for us and we have their full support in our decision to be fathers. The grandparents are in line to start spoiling another grandchild! This adoption has been a long time coming, we have spent many years thinking about it and preparing for it. We cannot wait to have a little baby to grow our little family.
