FC: Jennifer & Charles
1: Hello! We are Jennifer and Charles. Thank you for considering us as loving parents for your child. We admire both your courage, and your strength in your choice of adoption. After multiple miscarriages, and ongoing infertility, Charles and I decided | that God must have a different path planned for us. We believe in our hearts that we were meant to build our family through adoption. We realize that adoption is a difficult choice to make, and we offer our support and prayers. We know that your choice of adoption is being made out of love, courage, and selflessness for your child. We hope you find comfort in knowing how much we want to share our love, and our lives with a child.
2: Our Story | Charles and I have been together for over five years. I will always remember our first date. It was at a Chinese buffet. The date lasted for hours, and we both felt a special connection. I guess it's true what they say about love at first sight! Charles and I dated for a year before becoming engaged to be married. He waited until the night of my dad's surprise birthday party to propose to me, in front of all our family and friends. I was so surprised! Everyone knew of his plans, except for me! We are looking forward to celebrating our Third Anniversary in May.
4: Our Wedding | Charles and I were married in the same church as both my grandparents, and my parents. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day! We felt very blessed that all our loving family and friends were there to share in our special day.
5: Forever | Love | Cherish
6: Family | Family is a very important part of our lives. Charles has one son, Christopher who is thirteen years old. He is a wonderful, thoughtful young man. We our very blessed to have him in our lives. He is looking forward to having a new brother or sister. Charles and I both come from very close families. My parents only live ten minutes away, and Charles parents live around an hour away. We are both the youngest in our families. Our extended families are very large, and it seems like we are always celebrating birthdays! Our parents are loving, caring people who will welcome a baby with open arms. Everyone in our family is excited and supportive in our decision to adopt. | Live | Laugh | Love

12: About each other | Charles is a very honest, loving, caring husband. He has a great sense of humor, and can make me laugh more than anyone I know. He is a wonderful father to his son Christopher. Charles always finds the positive side of things, and he lives every day to the fullest. He is my best friend. I am very blessed to have him as my husband. Jennifer is the most angelic, wonderful, and caring person that I have ever met in my life. She has more love in her heart than anyone could believe is possible. She always takes time to help others, and she genuinely believes there is good in everyone. She loves children with all of her heart. She is a wonderful mother to my son.
14: Charles and Jennifer's Careers and Hobbies | I work as a laborer in a busy factory. I still am a big kid at heart. For fun I enjoy playing video games with my old Army buddies, and Christopher. I also love to cook. | I work as a Registered Nurse in the operating room at a large hospital. I love to read romance and mystery novels in my free time. In the summer, I love taking the dogs for walks in the neighborhood. | CHARLES | JENNIFER | Together | Charles and I both volunteer with different Dog Rescues. We help with the placement, and transport of puppies, and dogs to their new forever homes.
16: Our Home We live in a Colonial Two story, three bedroom home that will be a hundred years old in the next few years. Our house still has some of it's old charm, but it also has had many beautiful updates throughout. We live within walking distance to a beautiful big park that has a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a bike trail. We have a nice fenced in back yard that would be perfect for playing in. Our neighborhood is very close knit, and everyone watches out for one another. Every fall all of our neighbors get together for the annual block party. The street is closed off, and all the children ride their bikes that they decorated. Everyone brings a dish to share, and we all sit around and visit for hours.
18: Once again, we both want to thank you for taking the time to read our story. We realize that your decision will be a difficult one in the next several months. We respect your choice to follow your heart, and we pray that God will give you strength, and courage to help guide you in your decision. God bless, Jennifer and Charles | In Closing
