A Letter from Jared & Danielle

We are excited to start our family and share the life we have been building for the past seven years! We have both been raised by loving and supportive parents that have also displayed great work ethics, a love for the lake, and plenty of laughter to us while growing up. We can’t wait to share the same values and create similar memories at the lake with your child. We look forward to getting to know you and keep in contact with letters, photos, and visits if you’d like!

About Us

We met through mutual friends and ended up working at the same company. We have been married for seven years now and enjoy spending time together. We love being active in the warm weather and visits to a beach or a lake! We also have a love for animals and currently share our home with our two dogs, two cats, and five chickens.

We spend our weekends with family and friends. We are either all hanging out on a boat, in a pool or pond, or at a campfire. Our conversations are always filled with laughter and good memories.

Growing our family has not been easy. After four miscarriages, it was apparent that God had a different journey in mind for us. Adopting has always been in our hearts, and now it’s finally in the works! We have been blessed with a great life and a family of faith that we are thrilled to share with your child and raise them with our amazing community of friends and family.

About Danielle

Danielle is a very loving and compassionate woman. She has a great sense of humor which I noticed the first time I met her. She will never hesitate to help friends and family with anything they need. Danielle works on the assembly line at General Motors, enjoys reading books, and cleans our summer cottage rental.

Danielle has had a big heart for animals from an early age, which continues today with our two dogs. She enjoys working out, crafting, and spending time in the sun. She also has a passion for sports growing up with years of playing volleyball, tennis, basketball, and racquetball. She would love to teach these sports and hobbies to your child someday.

Danielle loves to spend time with our nieces and nephews at the lake or with a sleepover. Seeing her with them is just one of the many reasons I know she will be a great mother.

About Jared

Jared is an incredible husband, son, uncle, and friend. He works as a forklift driver, is Mr. Fix-it around our home, and is the landscaper at our cottage rental. He’s hardworking, detail-oriented, and makes sure any job is done right. If he doesn’t know how to do something, he finds a way to learn.

Jared is laid back, patient, easygoing, and has jokes for days. He has so much energy that he could easily work on four-wheelers, dirt bikes, and vehicles from sun up to sun down. He also enjoys jet skiing, fishing, playing hockey, and hanging out with friends and family. Our niece’s and nephew’s eyes will light up as soon as he walks through the door. He is their human jungle gym. Watching him play with his nieces and nephews is just more proof of what an amazing dad he will be to our child.

Jared is a great teacher, and can’t wait to teach our child how to fish, work on cars, and ride a dirt bike and four-wheeler. He believes mechanic skills are one of the most important skills you can learn for everyday life.

Our Family

We have a very fun extended family that is supportive and excited about our adoption. Jared is one of five siblings, and Danielle has one older brother. In total, we also have seven nieces and nephews that we love to visit and play with.

Both of our families enjoy spending time together at the lake, are very active, and love joking around and laughing around a campfire. We also will play the game Round Robin around the ping pong table with Jared’s parents and siblings! Our parents love being grandparents and can’t wait to welcome our child to the family!

We have two dogs, Sadie and Yukon. they are great with kids and love to play fetch and lay about.

Our Home and Lives in Indiana

Our three-bedroom home sits on a spacious 14 acres. We love the peace of being out in the country, yet we are only five minutes from town.  We have a hill that can be used for sledding in the winter or a waterslide in the summer. Our fenced-in backyard is perfect for playing fetch with our dogs and has plenty of space for a play set. We have a big pond as well, and it is great for fishing and swimming- two things we are excited to teach our child someday. There is much room for our child to run and play!

We have a big nursery room waiting for your child to fill with toys, laughter and some zzz’s! Plus, a walkout basement for sand toys and the garage for the bigger toys.

If we are not at home on the weekend, we are at our lake cottage floating with our parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews. Both of our parents have a place on a lake as well!

Our Promise

We promise to raise your child with love, affection, and laughter. We will help guide them through life and will always be here when he or she needs us. They will know they can rely on us during hard times and good times. We promise to raise your child in a Christian home and love them unconditionally. We will teach them all about lake life, mechanics, and how to enjoy the life that God gave us.

We would love to maintain contact with you through photos, letters, and visits if you would like!

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

We are very active people, but still like to just be home and relax too. We like to plan a couple of trips a year to see friends and family in different states. We also try to take a vacation to a new location every other year or so. Most weekends, you will find us with family or friends on the lake, with a campfire, or just sitting around the living room watching a movie and relaxing.

Even though we have our main 40-hour work-week jobs, we also like real estate and have a weekly cottage rental we rent out in the summer.

Our Faith

Jared was raised Catholic, and Danielle was raised baptist, then a non-denominational church later. We love God and know we are nothing without Him. We are not perfect, but strive to be better Christians every day. Danielle also likes to listen to Joyce Meyer throughout the week.

Our Musical Interest

We love music! We may not be able to play instruments, but we both love music! We love country and classic rock the most. Danielle also likes a little hip-hop and music to dance to. We always have music playing when we are working around the house and attend concerts once or twice a year.

More About Our Home

We are in a great rural area that is peaceful, with plenty of space to run around and play. We rent out a few acres for a local farmer to use, which does us a favor by saving us a few hours of mowing! This still leaves enough space for Jared to drive a dirt bike or four-wheeler around.

In Closing

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and for considering us for your child. We promise to provide your child with an amazing life filled with opportunities for extracurricular activities, family fun, and personal growth. Your child will be raised with joy and laughter and a pet or two (if that is their desire)! We will share with him/her our love for the lake and traveling, as well as teach them the importance of hard work. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. We look forward to hearing from you!
