John and Amy have been married for 9 years and have 3 children: Jace is 6 years old and will be going into 1st grade this fall; Bailey is 4 years old and will attend pre-school for the first time; and Gabby is 3 years old and will be staying at home with mom. John and Amy met while attending the University of Akron and were married after dating for several years. They have enjoyed every moment together since. Their greatest joy is spending time together as a family and supporting one another. Some of their favorite activities to do as a family are going to the zoo, going on a hike, family movie nights at home, and riding bikes. They also enjoy family vacations, story time at the library, going out for ice cream, baking and camping. The children are involved in several activities away from home as well, including t-ball, ballet lessons, basketball, music lessons and more. Our family loves to travel and see the world around us, but our favorite place to go is Disneyworld in Florida. It is such a joy to watch the faces of our kids as they light up at seeing Mickey, Minnie and all of their Disney friends, making it truly a magical place worth experiencing over and over again. We attend a non-denominational church regularly and are surrounded by a great community of friends.
John owns a distributing company and oversees all of the operational and sales function that goes on in the business. His company is very stable and has been growing every year. John works a typical work week, Monday through Friday, and has the flexibility to take off for any school or extra-curricular activities that our kids are involved with.
Amy is a stay at home mom and is able to put to use her Early Childhood college education with her children. She enjoys every minute she gets to spend with her kids and loves to get out and explore their town and meet friends for play dates. The kids schedule keeps her pretty busy, but in her free time she enjoys cooking, reading books and creating fun projects in her craft room.
John and Amy purchased and renovated a 1950’s home and turned it into their dream home. The house sits on nine acres of land which leads to a lot of family adventures and fun outdoor play time. The kids favorite thing to do outside is play on their swing set, ride their bikes or power wheel jeeps, or have their dad pull them around the house in a small boat tied to a utility vehicle. There is always lots of laughter when we are outside together. Inside is a finished basement that is every kids dream playroom. The kids are always singing and dancing so you can find them on the playroom stage ready to preform behind the curtains and lights. Inside you will also find their dog named Zoey. Zoey is a 6 pound yorkie-bichon and is 7 years old, the kids love running around the house throwing Zoey her toys.
We want you to know that we are praying for you as you consider adoption. Our dream since we were married was to add to our family through adoption, and our entire family is eager to welcome another member to our family. Every night when we say our prayers at bedtime and before our meals, our children pray for the new baby coming soon to our home. We are anxious and ready to share our love with another child. Our desire is to have an open adoption with an open line of communication
between us, and we want you to be involved as much or as little as you want to be. We will respect your wishes as far as communication goes and no matter how much or little we talk to one another we will always talk about you in high regards and the upmost respect because you are giving us the greatest gift we will ever receive and for that we will forever be thankful for you.
We would love to meet you and answer any questions that you may have about our family.
