Hello!

We are Jarred and Erin. We have been married for 10 years! With both our parents as examples, we are committed to a lifetime of love and happiness. We enjoy being outdoors, traveling, working on projects together, and spending time with our huge family. We are so blessed to live within ten minutes of 40 close family members! We have two biological children and two little dogs. We live in a neighborhood full of kids and sweet families. Summer time is our favorite!  We spend our days fishing in the pond, picking fresh fruits and veggies from grandma and grandpa’s garden, playing outside from sun up to sun down, and taking road trips in our camper. We are so excited to expand our family through the precious gift of adoption.

Jarred is the manager of digital media for a large company. He loves his job because it takes a lot of creativity and problem solving, both of which are his strong points. In his free time, you can find him playing with the kids and making them laugh like crazy, playing drums, guitar, piano, or working on some crazy project with the kids. Jarred has been playing drums since he was 10 and will occasionally play with different bands when they need a drummer last minute. We love going to watch him play! Jarred is usually the most patient, calm, or level-headed person in any room. He’s never met a stranger and is always willing to help. He loves his kids something fierce and can’t wait to welcome another baby to the family.

Erin is a nurse for new moms and babies. She absolutely loves her work! Erin only works one day a week so the children always have one of their parents available to them. She volunteers every chance she gets and believes it is her calling to care for others in that way. In her spare time, you can find her crafting with kids, helping with homework, starting a new project, listing to podcast, or cooking. She is a big advocate for ADHD education, rather in children or adults. She believes in finding the way the person learns and catering to their specific needs so they can thrive. She loves her big family and you can often find us spending time at extended family’s homes for family dinners, game nights, or just to hang out. Erin is so excited to share this big family with another baby, and they are all excited to have another member added to our family.

Ellie and Archie are our 2 children. They are 22 months apart and couldn’t be more thrilled at the prospect of having a baby brother or sister. They are funny, sweet, kind, and polite (aside from the occasional nose picking). They are close and look out for each other. They love being outside and playing with their two dogs, Rosie and Walter. They are big fans of the Junie B. Jones books, making every kind of art imaginable, snow cones, spending time with their grandparents and cousins, and doing everything their parents do. There would be no shortage of attention for a baby sibling.

We are a Christian family and love Jesus. We are part of a wonderful church that teaches from the bible in such a calm, relatable way. One of the main reasons we love our church are the opportunities they offer to serve the community. They truly are a Christ centered church with the intent to leave the community better than they found it. We teach our children about God, how to pray, kindness, and how serving others is so important in this life.

We want what is best for you and your baby. We want you to find a family that makes you feel comfortable, rather that is with us or another family. We want you to feel peace and calm when you make this incredibly difficult decision. We want you to have no doubts about how much your baby will be loved, cared for, and wanted. We don’t know you, but we pray for you daily. What you are doing takes courage, strength, and faith. Those are all qualities you will pass to your baby, and we will always ensure they know who those admirable traits come from.
