About Us

4th Floor Girl

In 2008 we were both engineers at the same company, but in different departments. Jonathan didn’t know her name, but noticed the cute girl who worked on the 4th floor. He started making excuses to go up past her cubicle, and then eventually to ask her work questions. Eventually he got the courage to ask her to walk down to Starbucks next to the office, and later out to dinner. In 2009 we stayed in touch as Jonathan went to an overseas work assignment, and then started dating later that fall after he got back.

We soon discovered things we had in common, like camping, hiking, and being outdoors. We dated from 2009 until 2012 before becoming engaged. Jennifer told him in 2010 that he was her person, so she didn’t care when they got married. When he did propose, he caught her totally off-guard.

We both have gotten a little older and a little heavier. Jonathan started working out in 2016 in the effort to remove some weight and help with snoring. While he loves beer and trying out new styles and breweries, he just can’t consume the calories anymore. Jennifer had to go gluten-free to reduce allergies, so we’ve really made cooking and eating healthy food a priority. After she was able to stop the allergic reactions, she was able to join him in adding working out to her routine. We really enjoyed our time together working out, pushing each other to be better. We understand that both of us are in constant change but that marriage is about finding someone who evolves at the same rate as you. We both have had our ups and downs, but we are stronger together as team and even have a team chant.

Also, Jonathan has become more open and thoughtful. With the difficulties we have faced, he has learned to be more emotionally available. Jennifer has grown in being able to identify what she is feeling. We’ve both learned to communicate better with each other.

Both Jonathan and Jennifer are trying to grow spiritually. Both had been passive members of their respective churches by merely just trying to attend, but are now becoming more active and are participating in organizations and events aimed at spiritual growth.

Our Family

Our Home

Back yard oasis!

Our home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and we love it for the back yard. When we purchased, we thought of our dogs, and it gave them a large area to run. We have created a large patio with cozy seating to watch a movie or game, and fire pit to roast marshmallows. We also put a fountain in the front yard so we can hear the water splashing. We didn’t want to commute far and be able to have more time to spend together. It’s our oasis to ignore the outside world all around us!

We live in a diverse, multicultural city. Our local school reflects this diverse community as it offers a mix of different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Houston is one of the greenest cities in the nation. We are not far from a multitude of green spaces, botanical gardens, and arboretum. Our neighborhood was built in the 50s, but now many of the homes have been remodeled or rebuilt, it is quite eclectic. It includes many couples who have lived here for decades, but also new younger couples like us. Some families have small children, and we often see many of them out walking with strollers and dogs. Most lots have nice big back yards with sprawling oak trees that provide shade. Our neighborhood civic association has get-togethers several times a year where old and new neighbors can meet each other. Houston is known for its diversity and our neighborhood is no exception. Within walking distance, we have Polish, Vietnamese, and Hispanic communities.

Final Thoughts

Before you go, we want to tell you...

Our family and friends have been faithfully praying for you daily. The time, thought, research, and energy you are putting into this decision shows how much you care. We know this child isn’t biologically ours. It is more important to us to raise a child than for it to be biologically ours. All we are asking for is for you to share your motherhood with us.

We want to play and experience the many facets of parenthood as they grow and mature. We want them to know our faith and be educated in the faith. We want them to be exposed to many things and help them continue learning. We are excited for the journey. We understand that we aren’t just adopting a baby, but gaining a whole new family.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
