We may not know your name yet, but we do know this: you have a huge heart. You’re thinking about the future of your child and how to make sure that it includes the most joy and love and care as possible. That is a true act of motherhood and one that requires strength and courage.
We’re grateful that you might consider us to be in your baby’s life.
We met and started dating in high school, 19 years ago, and have been married for the last 11 years. We are very happy together, know each other’s strengths and weaknesses, and have a joyful home. We’ve always wanted to start a family together but after many years of trying, we haven’t been able to conceive biological children.
Who are we? Lindsay is patient and kind. One of the ways she expresses her love for family and friends is through making them a great meal. She’s curious, a good listener, a loving aunt, and works as a journalist. Jason is passionate and sensitive. He’s a great storyteller, likes playing the guitar, singing, drawing pictures for his nieces, and loves to be generous with people. He teaches political science at a university. Jason is a native Spanish speaker and Lindsay is fluent, too. Our Catholic faith is at the center of our lives.
When we think about raising a child, we imagine exploring L.A. together as a family, walking on the beach and going on hikes. We want to read stories every night before bedtime and eat pancakes on Saturdays in our pajamas! We have a lot of joy in our lives and would like nothing better than to share it with a child.
Our families are a big part of our lives, even though we’re not in the same state–many grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in Colorado are waiting, ready to love this baby and pay us a visit. We often visit our families in Colorado over Christmas, where we sing carols, go to midnight Mass, play in the snow, do craft projects, and have tea parties with the kids.
Our parents raised us with kindness and patience. They were always there to offer guidance and to help us learn, but they also let us find our own interests and passions. We think that’s a pretty good way to parent and that’s how we’d like to raise a child. Most importantly, we want to give your baby as much unconditional love and security as possible.
We know that you face a very difficult decision. We pray and wish for the very best for you and your baby’s future, regardless of the decision you make.
Peace be with you,
Lindsay & Jason
