Thank you for considering us and taking the time to go through our profile. We are Jeff and Amanda and have been together for ten years. We hope that our profile allows you to learn a bit about us and the love we have to offer a child.
We understand that this is an incredibly difficult decision to make as you go through the process of creating an adoption plan for your child. You are courageous and selfless to be putting your baby’s well-being first. We really hope that you are able to see your child fit into our lives and help us become a family. We look forward to having a chance to meet with you to discuss your wishes for you and your baby.
We are a healthy, active and loving couple. We met in high school and have been together ever since. Together we enjoy sports, hiking and social events. Friends and family are a huge part of our lives and we enjoy getting together with them often.
In the summer months, we spend a lot of time at our family cottage in the Muskoka’s. Here we enjoy relaxing by the lake, boating, kayaking, water sports and more. Another big part of our lives is travel. We have both been so fortunate to travel throughout our lives and we plan to provide our child with this opportunity.
We live in a small rural community situated on Lake Huron. We love being able to walk to Lake Huron within minutes whether we are enjoying a sunset, going for a swim, or taking our dog for a walk along the shore. Our community also features several schools, recreation facilities, walking trails, and other various attractions.
I am a hardworking, active and compassionate person. I work as a Structural Engineer and love what I do. My hobbies include hockey, crossfit/fitness, snowmobiling, snowboarding and reffing. I have always seen myself becoming a dad and since becoming an uncle over three years ago, I have wanted this more than anything. I am really excited to become a parent and look forward to having an active role in their life as a friend, coach and role model.
“I cannot wait to add a child into our lives to see the amazing dad that Jeff was meant to be. My heart melts whenever I watch him interact with children and to see the joy they bring to our lives. Jeff is the most caring and supportive person I have ever met and I know he would do anything for me and our family. ”-Amanda
I am a fun-loving, caring and energetic person. I enjoy my work as an Activity/Volunteer Coordinator. My hobbies include hiking, tennis, baking and travel. I also enjoy planning gatherings with friends and family and almost any day you can find me at the beach whether enjoying the sun, taking Remy for a swim or strolling along the board walk. More than anything, I have wanted to be a Mother for as long as I can remember and am looking forward to this next chapter in my life. I am excited to have a family to share our passions, go on adventures and create memories with together.
“There is no one more deserving than Amanda to be a mother. Amanda is the most caring and loving person that I know. When she loves it is with her whole heart. Watching her take care of our nieces it is evident that she is meant to be a mother. It excites me to be on this journey with Amanda!”-Jeff
Remy is our two year old German Shepherd dog. She is a very affectionate, intelligent and loving dog. Remy loves spending time with our friends and families, and especially our nieces. Remy fits into our lives well as she enjoys spending time in the outdoors, especially going for hikes and swims at the lake.
Family means everything to me. I am so blessed to have such a large, loving and supportive family. My parents live in the country where I grew up on a farm. It is so wonderful having my family close by as we get together often. Growing up, my three siblings and I were fortunate to spend so much time in the outdoors and also grew up with the lake close by. As a child my parents always encouraged me to try new sports and hobbies and I felt it was important to give everything a try from dance, gymnastics, soccer, tennis, piano lessons, horseback riding, and more. I also grew up going to Church every Sunday and was a Sunday school teacher for many years.
We have two adorable nieces that are a huge part of our lives. We enjoy every minute we get to spend with them and they will often come over for visits and sleepovers. Our nieces love to play games, read stories, go to the park and play at the beach. We love having fun with these girls and we know they are so excited to gain a new cousin to play with.
Growing up in such a warm, loving environment allowed me to appreciate how lucky I am to have the family that I do. My parents reside in the country about twenty minutes from our home which I grew up in with my three siblings. My mother is a Principal and my father owns his own business; they each taught me the value of a good work ethic and persistence. In the summer my family spends a lot of time at our cottage on a beautiful lake in Muskoka. Growing up I was involved in many extracurricular activities including hockey, volleyball, soccer, music and I enjoy many of these activities still today. Both of our families have expressed how excited they are about the opportunity for us to create a family through adoption. We feel very fortunate to have such an amazing family and we are confident your child would be welcomed into our families with loving arms.
We are very excited about growing our family through adoption and believe that this is the path we were destined to be on. We have so much love for each other, but in our hearts we feel a piece is missing. We have the knowledge, support, financial stability and resources we need to make sure your child grows and develops beyond their potential.
We both grew up given the opportunities and support we needed to succeed. Education played a big role in the lives of both of us, but we understand that everyone has individual strengths and recognize that this is equally important. Getting involved in extracurricular activities like sports and music is something we both did and is another way we will support your child.
It is important to provide a safe, healthy and active environment with rules and consistency for a child. A child should be taught to respect others and themselves. Children should learn through play and experiences. We believe that disciplining a child for inappropriate behaviours using constructible consequence helps them to understand the difference between right and wrong. Any sort of physical discipline within our household will never be resorted to. We will ensure that your child grows up with unconditional love, stability and opportunity with an abundance of fun and laughter. They will know that as their parents we are there to teach, guide and support them in all that they do.
An open adoption provides the greatest benefits when contact is maintained with a child and their birth family. We look forward to sitting down with you and discussing the vision you have for your child and also a plan that is best suited for this child. If open adoption is not the way you choose to go, we will respect that decision but will also welcome you back into the child’s life if you have a change in heart. Your child will be reassured that you loved them very much and have made a great sacrifice as their biological parent(s) to give them every opportunity in this life through the means of an adoptive family.
Thank you again for taking the time to explore our profile and open your hearts to the idea of us becoming your child’s adoptive parents. We have a large social network of friends and family that are all excited to welcome this child into our lives. We will raise your child to understand and appreciate that you made an adoption plan for them out of love and to have the best future possible. We could only imagine the difficult decision you are faced with but we hope that if you chose us you will know that your child will be forever loved. We sincerely wish you good luck with your journey.
