And so the story goes....we met online in April 2011. On our very first date, we talked so much as if we were old friends catching up! As our relationship grew, we knew instantly we shared many of the same interests, qualities and family values. We were engaged in June 2013 and married five months later in November 2013. Our individual personalities and silliness blend well together and we feel so lucky to have found each other. Its always nice to hear our family & friends say we are a perfect match!
Together we enjoy weekends away, bike rides, concerts, going to the beach and spending time with our families. We both come from large families, Jason is the oldest of four and Stefanie is the youngest of five. Combined, we have an incredible support system and are lucky enough to live close to our parents and siblings.
Having children and building a family of our own was certainly something we both wanted. Just a short time after being certified to adopt, we surprisingly became pregnant in May 2017. This was such an exciting time for us because we knew we were building a family however it came to us. We do feel that the beauty of adoption is so special and we never want to give up on it! We continued on our road of building a family and gave birth to our beautiful son Christian Anthony in January 2018. Christian has certainly added a tremendous amount of joy to our lives and gave us the title of Mommy and Daddy. We feel so blessed and grateful for this opportunity to grow our family more as we continue on this adoption journey to find the child that we've been waiting for.
