About Us/Me

We are Jacob and Jim. Our family was established in 2006. When Jim and I met we immediately hit it off. We take no decision lightly 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. During our time together we have rescued two Chihuahuas Oliver (6) and Bella (7). Oliver 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. The relentless attempts to lick you will let you know he likes you.

 

About You

Our dream of becoming a family would not be possible without you. We can't even begin to imagine what you are going through having to make this decision. We want you to know that you can be confident in your decision of allowing us to raise your baby. Because we have wanted this for so long we could never take this child for granted. We would like to teach our child all that we have learned in life and watch her/him grow into a fully capable adult who will hopefully remember us with great love long after we are gone. We will see to it that she/he understands you did what you felt was right and that you gave two people the greatest gift a person can give to another human being.

 

About Us/Me

We are Jacob and Jim. Our family was established in 2006. When Jim and I met we immediately hit it off. We take no decision lightly 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. During our time together we have rescued two Chihuahuas Oliver (6) and Bella (7). Oliver 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. The relentless attempts to lick you will let you know he likes you. Bella is a lot more reserved. Bella is the sweetest little girl once she knows she can trust you. She has had a much rougher life than Oliver. Oliver came to us at 9 weeks old and Bella came to us several years later at an estimated age of 4 after being rescued from a puppy mill. 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. I love the social aspect of it mostly, I meet some great people in the community and I've made some awesome 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 (12). My brother is married and has one child (2). My baby sister is coupled and has one child (10 months old) and one on the way. He or she is due in October. 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 talks about it all the time. He is the younger of two siblings. His brother is married and has one biological child (4) and three step children (21, 18 and 16). 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 do home improvement projects together and we both love going out to eat. Both of our parents have been married 30 + years, we've been raised in homes all about 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 raise a child. The grandparents are in line to start spoiling! 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 complete our family.

She/he needs to know that you too love her/him and had her/his best interest at heart when you made this decision. We will forever be grateful to you for making us a family.
