We are a caring, fun-loving couple with lots of energy. We are so excited to become parents, and we would welcome a child of any race or gender into our home and family. In fact, Nicole even has a certificate of Aboriginal status with the Métis community. We are just so thankful that we could possibly be – by your grace – blessed with a child through adoption.
We would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to look through our adoption profile. Our life is open to you. We hope that through this profile, you will be able to see the love we have for each other, our families, friends and all that we could give your child.
Yet, through our excitement, we are aware of the struggle you must be experiencing. We want you to know we are praying for you and we admire your strength, courage and, above all, your unconditional love for considering an open adoption plan for you and your baby.
We met at a friend’s Christmas party and immediately became teenage sweethearts. We knew instantly that we were right for each other and that we would end up spending our whole lives together.
Five years later, Jay proposed and we have been married since 2004. We share a deep and special connection. We are husband and wife and we always have each other’s back. Our relationship is based on love, support and compromise.
We have already enjoyed so many wonderful years together. We love to travel and have been on many vacations over the years. Travelling within Canada is our favourite, especially to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, where both of our families are from. We cannot wait to adopt a child and start our next adventure as parents.
We are infertile. But you know what? Our experience with infertility has made us a stronger couple and more grateful for all the blessings in our life. We believe everything happens for a reason, and we know in our hearts that adoption is the path meant for us. We are so excited for the opportunity to become parents through the miracle of adoption. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be on this new journey.
Nicole – by Jay
Nicky will make an amazing mom! She loves children and has told me she has dreamed of having them ever since she was a little girl. She has been patiently waiting for many years. I am blessed to have her in my life, not only as my wife, but as my best friend and soul mate. In my eyes, Nicky is the most beautiful woman, both inside and out. She is a very caring individual with a true love for people, children and animals. The first time I met her, I said to myself, “She is the nicest person I will ever meet.” We have been together nearly 20 years now and this feeling still holds true. She looks at the positive in every situation and, no matter how her day is going, she always has a smile on her face. Nicky is a great friend and always has a listening ear without ever judging the situation. She has a passion for life itself and believes in living life to the fullest. My biggest wish for Nicky is to see her dream of becoming a mom come true.
Hobbies & Interests
Nicky is very active and always has lots of energy. She enjoys cooking and takes pleasure in baking sweets. She also loves to read inspirational books and has a passion for all types of music. Nicky enjoys spending time with friends and family, attending outdoor concerts, and camping in our trailer. She loves to travel and is always planning our next big adventure.
Nicky Talks about her Career
I love my job! I’ve worked in a Wellness clinic for the last 10 years as a Chiropractic Assistant. My biggest passion lies in helping people, so this has been a very rewarding career for me. I work just three days a week, which means I am able to have a very flexible schedule. Being a mom and being there for your little one will always be my top priority.
Jason – by Nicole
Jay is the most wonderful person I know, and I am so lucky to call him my husband. One of the reasons I want to be a mom so much is because I know Jay would make such an amazing father. He is kind, loving, supportive and a very giving person. Jason puts his family first and is such a great provider for us. He is amazing with kids and they seem to gravitate to him, probably because he is a big kid at heart in a lot of ways. We often have our nieces and nephews stay over with us on the weekend. Jay loves to play board games, swim in our pool, and host movie nights in our back yard with them. Some of his favourite movies are Star Wars and Harry Potter. Whether it’s a trip to Niagara Falls, camping in our trailer, or spending the day at the beach making sand castles, Jay will make the perfect dad and he will love and protect your child with his entire being.
Interests & Hobbies
Jay is very active and adores the outdoors. He enjoys camping, hiking, swimming and bonfire nights. He is passionate about home renovating, woodworking and building projects. Jay is definitely a jack-of-all-trades and he could literally assemble or fix anything. He is an excellent cook and delights in trying out new recipes. He loves spending time with family and friends, making wonderful memories with them.
Jay Talks about his Career
I used to be a Manufacturing Engineer, but have recently built a new successful business doing home renovations. I specialize in backyard creations – including decks, fences and outdoor kitchens. I have turned my passion into a brilliant career and I love every minute of it. I make my own schedule, which allows me to balance both work and family responsibilities. Although I take pleasure in my career, my family always comes first.
We love our home! It’s a yellow brick, 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2-story century house located in Southwestern Ontario. We have lived here for 11 glorious years. We are situated on a quiet street, close to community schools and parks. Our property is within walking distance of downtown and all the beautiful hiking trails along the river. We love to spend hot summer days in our back yard, enjoying the pool with family and friends. Your child will have so much space, sunshine and love here. In this home, your child will have a LIFETIME of family dinners surrounded by everyone who loves them.
Family & Friends
Being a family means you are part of something very wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life. No matter what.
We are both proud to be a part of large extended families. This has made our lives richer and fuller in many ways. Although we don’t all share the same blood, that doesn’t change the love that we feel for one another – it only brings us closer together. We love taking trips, having family parties and spending holidays together. Both of our families are very supportive and excited for our adoption, and they can’t wait to have our new little one join the family.
Our friends are also a very important part of our lives. With their ever-growing love and support, we proudly consider them part of our extended family. They are all so happy that we are adopting, and they can’t wait to meet your new little one. Your child will be loved by ALL.
Memories & Adventures
We are a very active couple and we love the outdoors. We love making memories and we put special attention into having a passion for this life we share. Together, we do our best to make the most of every single day – and we will build a foundation with your child where they too have a life full of joyous memories of fantastic adventures. Whether it be camping, travelling, enjoying a sunny day in the back yard swimming as a family, or reading fantasy stories at bedtime, we commit to giving your child a life full of positive memories. Our goal? Years from now, we want your child to one day say to you, “You know what mom? I had the best childhood!”
Our dog Roxy is a fun-loving, 5-year-old pug mix. She is a playful spirit who is full of energy and enthusiasm. Roxy is incredibly special to us and we have so much love in our hearts for her! Every child should have a dog, and Roxy will be the greatest friend to your little one. You have surely seen those photos of kids laughing hysterically at the family dog while the dog does something silly – this will be us!
Community & Traditions
We have many fun family traditions that we can’t wait to share with a new little one. Our absolute favourite holiday is Christmas. Every year, we cut down our very own Christmas tree. This is something we both did as children with our families, and will do with your child as well. We spend Christmas Eve with family, watching Christmas classics and listening to holiday favourites while wrapping presents. We take pride in how cozy our house is for the Christmas holidays!
We also love Thanksgiving, Halloween, and celebrating with family and friends. In this home, your child will experience all the fun adventures of all the holidays that every child should know.
Your Child’s Foundation
Your beautiful child will be raised in a warm and safe home. Our promise to you is to give your child a full and happy life, filled with love, laughter and beautiful memories to cherish forever.
As parents, we will provide unconditional love, guidance, comfort and support all throughout our child’s life. They will learn kindness, compassion, gratitude and humility. We believe in discipline (never punishment) and we hope to set positive examples for open communication and good behaviour. We will teach your child to always have respect for others – but especially for themselves. We are committed as parents to providing as many opportunities as we possibly can. Your child will grow up knowing we will always be proud of them no matter what direction they take. They will be encouraged to follow their dreams. Our biggest hope for your child is that they will have a life where they are able to pursue whatever makes them happy and to become the person they desire to be.
Your child will be taught to make the most of every day and to live life to the fullest. Your child will be surrounded by family and friends who will also provide love, guidance and support. Most of all, your child will know you, who, as their first mother, loves them unconditionally. They will grow up with the foundation that your absolute love for them was the basis for your choice to give them the best possible life you could.
If we are given the privilege to adopt your child, we want you to know that we would love and accept you as part of our family. We would be committed to having an on-going open relationship with you as we feel this is the healthiest for everyone involved (including us). We are also respectful of the level of openness you are comfortable with and we would be completely understanding of that. We are committed to communicating with you through visits, texts, emails and pictures. But most of all, we look forward to knowing more about you and to hearing about your dreams and hopes for the life you want us to provide for your child. We want to know your traditions, values and beliefs so we can integrate them into ours to give your child a whole foundation from both of our families.
Committed to You
We’re committed to creating a relationship that works for everyone as we want to raise a child who knows love from both sides of their adoption. You will always be a part of our lives, and we plan to raise your child with an understanding and appreciation for you and the sacrifice you are making for them. We promise that our home will be filled with love and laughter and that you will always have a place in our family.
We pray that you will find us to be all that you hope for your child and no amount of words can express how grateful we would be to be chosen by you. We look forward to meeting with you and discussing your hopes and dreams for the future.
