Dear Expectant Parent,
Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. We hope this profile gives you a peek into our lives and the love we have to share. We value family deeply and hope to cultivate a strong sense of self in a child through an open adoption and a lifelong relationship with you. We promise that, if given the opportunity to raise your child, s/he will grow up in a secure, nurturing home surrounded by love and laughter. We have made our home in Texas where we have an acre of our own to run and play. Our daughter Katie is the light of our lives and we dream of welcoming a second child into our family. We're delighted you're here and look forward to getting to know you.
Tom and Jannette
As physicians, we both have nurturing hearts.
We met in medical school and bonded over our love for baseball at an Oakland A's game. We have lovingly supported each other through 7 years of medical training, 5 moves, and 2 oversea deployments. Now we've settled down for good in Texas and hope to grow our family together. Tom I am an ER doctor and enjoy the challenge and flexibility of my job. My work schedule allows me to be available for school pick up and family events. While growing up in rural Iowa I loved hunting, fishing and baseball. I still love all three to this day! I'm a foodie and the #1 chef of our family. Christmas is my favorite holiday because the food is amazing. I'm proud to have spent 20 years serving our country in the military including two deployments and I want my children to enjoy the freedom I hold dear. Jannette I am a pediatrician and I love taking care of children! I was raised in a large, loving and loud family in California. Three of my four siblings joined our family through adoption which sparked our interest in making adoption part of our own family. My childhood was packed with the same sort of joy and love I hope to cultivate in my own family. I treasure caring for children as a career and hope to share all the love in my heart as our family grows.

Making cookies with mommy
Katie is an energetic, hilarious and loving 9-year-old girl. She has a special relationship with her dad because he is the supreme tickle monster that she adores. She also loves spending time with her mommy who bakes, plays and rides bikes with her. Katie has the brain of a scientist and a heart full of love. She builds with Legos but also lovingly cares for her dolls, the way her mom cares for her patients. Reading, playing outdoors and fishing are all favorite activities for Katie. Right now, she wants to be a dentist when she grows up. When she talks about becoming a big sister, she lights up the room with her smile and enthusiasm. She insists we pray about her future brother or sister nightly.

Kayla, Tom, Jannette & Katie
Our family is full of wonderful people. Kayla, Tom's adult daughter, is an amazing young woman. Katie and Kayla have a sweet relationship and although Kayla lives in a different state they communicate regularly. Kayla is excited about welcoming a new child into the family. Tom's family is full of foodies and the table is always filled with fabulous food when there is a family gathering. Jannette's family always spends time cooking, celebrating birthdays and being rowdy together. Both sides of Jannette and Tom's families are very supportive of adding another member through adoption. In fact, Jannette's parents have made the big move from California to Texas to support our growing family. You are already on our minds and in our hearts. We hope for a future where you're a part of our family through open adoption. Thank you for taking the time to consider our family for your child's future.
