About Us/Me

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. The relentless attempts to lick you will let you know he likes you. Bella is a lot more reserved. 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.  

 

About You

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. Our mornigs are quiet, we have our coffee, watch the news, and may or may not eat breakfast. We both work full time right now. Due to our jobs we dont always get weekends together. To counteract that Jim and I take weekdays off to be together. I get home between 7 and 8 and make dinner. I'll either watch my tv shows on DVR or one of my many retro movies or Tv shows. While waiting for Jim to get home, I'll usually sew for awhile or read either a book or watch Youtube tutorial videos for various craft things. Jim gets home at 11:30 I stay up until he gets home so we can talk about our day. Thats an average work day for us. On our days off, we will have dinner at Jims brothers house or with his parents. We will do whatever home improvement project we are currently working on, or we will go out to eat. Occassionally we will take a day trip to somewhere within the state. If we dont have any plans like that I will do housework while he does yardwork.... its very Donna Reed, minus the pearls (yes, I frequently use very obscure references) sometimes we will even choose a meal and cook it together, but that admittedly doesnt happen too often, I am the cook 80% of the time. We live in a spacious 3 bedoom two story home. Currently one bedroom is my dedicated craft room, but Jim and I are in the process of finishing the basement for a family room and a new craft space. If you didnt already figure it out, sewing is a huge part of my life. I make quilts, bags, clothes, and all the drapes in my home. I'm basically martha stewart, without the insider trading and prison. Our home is plenty big for a growing family. We have a spacious yard, great neighbors, and live in a great school district. We got rid of our coupes and traded them in for SUVs, we basically have that whole soccer dad thing going on, we even have the dad bods to match. HaHa.As far as our parenting plan goes, Jim and I have made the needed arrangements for me to be a stay at home dad for a year or two. Grandma (Jim's mom) will be our main babysitter/caregiver when I go back to work part-time. Working as a cosmetlogist will allow me the flexibilty to be around when I am needed. Jim is planning on switching shifts at work so he can be around when needed too. All of my family live out of state so I only see them a couple of times a year. Trips to Iowa are pretty frequent. My brother is in colorado so trips there happen as well, but are few and far between. As for school...we already know a fantastic preschool, and it seems the baby will have to go on a waiting list as soon as possible because its so wonderful. Thank you so much for considering us to be the fathers of your baby, we are so excited and look forward to it more than you could even imagine.
