Hi, We’re Jay and Kaitlyn

Being an active duty military family, we have had the pleasure of living in many locations across the country, and sharing in many different life experiences. We truly feel that the time is right, and that we are more prepared than we have ever been, to expand our family through the adoption process. There are no words to express how thankful we are to you for taking the time to consider us as the loving and caring, perfect fit for your baby. We cannot begin to imagine the wide range of emotions you are feeling currently, but please know that we are grateful you are here, considering us. We hope that you find our profile informative and comforting. We are also hopeful for the opportunity to get to know you soon, too.

Since we married in 2012, the military has given us the opportunity to live in many places from Washington D.C to Seattle, WA. We currently live in Florida, and hope to call it home long-term as it has been our favorite location to date. Jay is currently active duty, and has served since 2008. Kaitlyn is a Program Manager for a large tech company, and works remotely from home.

From the very beginning, we have always known that we wanted to be parents. We both dream of having a large family. Although we have not been able to have a biological child to date, we believe that we are being called to grow our family through the adoption process. We are as prepared as ever to provide a child with a stable, loving, and fulfilling life.

We live in a safe and family-focused neighborhood with lots of children and fun traditions. Our neighborhood goes all out for holidays and celebrations, with the largest by far being Halloween. We look forward to the day when we can also celebrate these occasions with our kids!
We have a large, supportive family that is spread throughout the country. The majority of our family is located in Florida and Michigan. We try to make visits to Michigan as often as possible. We will be traveling there this year to attend Jay’s grandma’s 100th birthday party!

Fun Facts

We are avid golfers. Jay tries to play at least once a week, and Kaitlyn will join him for a round every other week or so. We recently bought our own golf cart and enjoy riding it around the neighborhood in the evenings with our dogs.

We love to spontaneously rent beach homes within a few hours of our house. We spend the time (usually a long weekend, sometimes a whole week) relaxing, swimming, playing golf, and finding new places to eat. Family members will occasionally join us, but most of the time it is just the two of us and our two dogs.

We have had pizza every Friday night for as long as we can remember. It is a fun little tradition that we take very seriously. 🙂

We have two bulldogs that light up our lives. Savannah and Gary can’t wait to have a little human sibling!

In Closing

Thank you for considering us as you make this difficult decision. Please know that we are willing and prepared to provide a child with an amazing life. We promise to always honor you and the choice you make in every way possible.

We hope you found our profile book informative. We believe it is an accurate portrayal of who we are and what we can offer – love, security, adventure, family, encouragement, stability, and fun.
