Jesse & Hannah
Hello, We believe that you are making a monumental decision and it takes an incredibly strong mother to search for the perfect fit for her child. We think you are incredibly brave for considering an adoption plan for your child. We can't imagine how difficult this time must be for you but we hope you will find peace in the process as you consider families. Thank you for considering ours! Since we have been married we have known that expanding our family through adoption is something we would like to do one day. In 2017, we lost our first born son shortly after birth. After having our second son in 2019, we began to feel that the next time we expanded our family it would be through adoption. The more we talked about it, the more we felt like now is the time!
We met at a church camp when we were 18 years old. It was just a friendly meeting but two years later we reconnected through Facebook and the rest was history! We became good friends before starting to date in 2011. About a year later Jesse proposed. We got married in May 2013. We truly enjoy each other and feel strongly that our mutual faith helps us in every area of our marriage.
I already knew that Jesse was incredibly smart and a man of faith, but as we spent more time together I saw how kind and funny he was, too. He plays the guitar and sings. He’s a hard worker and loves to help others. He is someone who is selfless and caring. He is someone I’ve leaned on when things got tough. He is loving and affectionate toward our son, Zion, and me. Zion adores his daddy and he knows he can always count on his dad to chase him through the house and sit down to play with him. Jesse is fluent in Spanish. Jesse learned Spanish in college. He loves to sing and preach to the Spanish community. He is a CPA and the Chief Financial Officer of the telecommunications company he works for. He enjoys leading worship in church. He also ministers in English and Spanish. He has worked very hard for where he is today. I love him so much for everything he does for our family and for how he shows us his love through his actions.
My wife, Hannah is not only my soulmate, but my best friend. She is kind, funny, intelligent, strikingly beautiful, and a loving companion. She is an amazing mom, and the cornerstone in our family. She cooks delicious meals and looks after us with a nurturing hand at all times. She makes life fun for our own household and rest of our family. Hannah likes to read and write. She bakes and she enjoys flowers and being outdoors. She is one of the strongest people I have ever met, and I have watched her overcome devastating adversity with incredible faith. She is intelligent and worked for a time as a Physical Therapist Assistant, but decided she wanted to be a stay at home mom full-time, which I was supportive of. Having grown up as the oldest of three sisters, she has the talent and the natural heart of a mother. I love her for, among many things, showing her love and devotion to Zion and me on a daily basis through the things she says and does.
Meet Our Kids
Five years ago we lost our firstborn son, Arden, shortly after birth. We think of him every day but we know his life, even though it was very short lived was incredibly meaningful. We know that in the midst of tragedy God is still good and has been faithful to us.
Zion was born July 2019. He loves music! He loves watching Disney movies and shows. He loves to eat Mexican food. He likes hide and seek, to run, and to be chased. Like any boy, he loves to climb and play with balls. He enjoys going to library school. Zion is very smart and observant. He loves to help around the house, has a great sense of humor, and is quick with a hug or kiss for his family. We bought Zion a baby doll to get him used to having a little one around our home. He hugs and kisses it and says “Aww, baby.” He never fails to point out a baby when he sees one. We think Zion will be a wonderful big brother and will love having a sibling!
We hope you feel supported in whatever decision you make. Through our experience with grief, we understand how it feels to wonder and say “what if.” Our hope is that you won’t ever have to wonder or ask “what if.” If you choose us, we would love to give you updates and help you be a part of your child’s life in whatever way is most comfortable for you. Know that you will be honored as a hero in our family as someone who made an incredibly brave decision and your child will always know of your immense love for them. If we are chosen, we will devote ourselves to providing a life and a family for your child so he/she can fulfill his or her God given purpose in the world. Our hearts’ desire is to provide a loving, nurturing, and stable home for your child to flourish in. We would want your child to be part of the loving family we have been blessed with.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little about us. We hope you will want to know more.
Jesse, Hannah, & Zion
