"...whoever welcomes a child like this.... welcomes Me."
A Letter from Bill & Jansen
We are a loving, Christian couple hoping to expand our family through adoption! Our dream is to raise a child together and we feel that we’ve been called to adopt to complete that dream. We promise to love your child unconditionally and look forward to sharing our adventurous lives with him or her.
We met working at the same restaurant and knew we had an instant connection. Our lives went their separate ways and when we met again through mutual friends years later, our lives matched perfectly and we haven’t looked back since. We’ve always talked about adoption together and knew it was how we wanted to expand our family since we are unable to conceive on our own.
We love watching sports, going to concerts, trying new restaurants around our town, and traveling to spend time with loved ones. We are eager to share our active lifestyle with your child.
Jansen caught my attention instantly the first time I saw her. She’s full of compassion, positive energy and is the light in my life. She has raised her son, Braedan, to be a loving young man and I am so excited to see her raise your child. Her career working in an emergency room allows her to be a stay at home mom part-time.
Jansen loves to do crafts, read books, go to Braedan’s sports practices, and attend concerts of all varieties. She’s so incredibly creative; we are remodeling our home and she has thrown herself into designing and picking out colors. She’s looking forward to opening her heart and home to your child.
Bill always has an upbeat and positive outlook on everything in life. It is amazing to see how my son, Braedan, looks up to him as a role model. It has been a wonderful experience to see how Bill has embraced my son as his own. He loves helping him with his school work and throwing the ball around in the backyard. Bill works as an IT manager and is able to have a flexible schedule, which allows him to spend lots of time with us as a family.
In his downtime, Bill loves reading science fiction novels and comic books, watching sports (he has season tickets to our local football teams!), listening to music, and coaching lacrosse. I’m so excited to see Bill share all of this and more with your child!
Family is the most important part of our lives. Our families live close to us and we make sure to see them as much as possible. Every Sunday, we have dinner with Bill’s parents and in the summertime, we light up the grill in their backyard. We have a lot of close friends that we consider our family and enjoy spending the holidays with them.
Every Christmas, Bill’s family records video clips of each family member’s highlight of the day and puts it all together for us to look back on. Jansen loves to celebrate birthdays with lots of festive decorations and fun games. We’re looking forward to sharing these family traditions and making new ones with your child.
Our Son, Braedan
Braedan is our caring and goofy 10-year-old son. He has a big heart for his family and friends and is always willing to help out those in need. He’s thrilled to be a big brother and will be an awesome mentor to your child.
Our home has an open floor plan with 4 bedrooms. There is a lot of space inside and out for our children to grow up in. We chose this area so we would close to the big city with everything we need, but still live in a quiet community with a small town feel. Our neighbors are incredibly supportive and we work together to watch over all of the kids in the neighborhood.
We have a 6-year-old beagle mix name, Sadie. She loves people and sleeps on Braedan’s bed every night.
We promise to provide your child with a life full of love, laughter, and stability. We will make sure your child is provided with every opportunity for him or her to find their passions in life. We will support your child with a great education and a caring home. We want our children to look back and remember their childhood as a time with lots of love and adventure. We are open to sharing letters, photos, and visits if you are open to that. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
