A Letter from Joe & Julia
Hi! As a couple, we stay grounded through our faith, family, community, and careers. We make time for fun in our daily lives too! Our home is in a great part of Pennsylvania and our lives are set up to put our children first. We are committed to raising our children in a healthy, stable home where they can learn and grow.
Adoption has been a dream of ours that we started talking about even before we were married. Having our daughter has only deepened our desire to grow our family and we’re excited to adopt! We would be honored and blessed to welcome your child into our family and embrace a connection with you.
We met after college when on the day we both started working at the same job. Now we’ve been together 11 years and married over 5 years! Our faith and family are at the core of who we are. As Catholics, we value sacrificial love, honesty, and giving back to our community.
Together we love:
• Family walks with our dogs around the neighborhood or local parks
• Watching comedies or stand-up shows
• Working out in our home gym
• Seeing historical sites, museums, & botanical gardens
• Attending church & volunteering in the community
I work for a large health product company as a Research & Development Manager.
In Joe’s words: Julia is caring, compassionate, and fully dedicated to our family. She brings a love and warmth to our home and always inspires me to be my best self. As a mother, she loves deeply and creates a fun environment for learning and growth. Julia is passionate about taking care of her family.
• Crafting and coloring
• Doing makeup and trying new techniques and products
• Planning events with family & friends
I am a Manager in Regulatory Affairs at the same company where Julia works.
In Julia’s words: Joe is fun-loving, kind, and a great teammate who keeps us moving toward our goals. He makes me laugh, even through tough times. Joe enjoys giving back to our church and community as part of our local Knights of Columbus chapter. He’s a loving father and his giving, fun heart is always there for us!
• Running, weightlifting, and interval training
• Watching sports (especially baseball!)
• Home projects
Our daughter, Josie, is a lovable, energetic baby girl. We’re excited about raising children close in age and sharing bedtime stories, learning new skills, and making memories exploring nature, taking vacations, and celebrating life together.
Loved Ones: We both come from large extended families, with many uncles, aunts, and cousins! We’re close to our parents and visit them several times a year. We have family and friends in several places, including Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, Washington, Virginia, and even in the UK. We love to keep in touch and make trips to see each other.
Life in Pennsylvania
We live in eastern Pennsylvania in a lovely neighborhood. Our two-story home is only a 5-minute walk from the park and we have a large backyard with a swing-set and a play house. This area is family-friendly and full of kids. Since we live on a cul-de-sac it’s quiet, with little traffic. The schools are some of the highest rated in our state too.
Our house has 4 bedrooms and sits on a half acre of property (plenty of space to run and play!). The nursery is set up to welcome another child as well. We love raising our family here!
Thank you for considering our family for your child. We promise we would love him or her with all our hearts! We will raise our children with the support needed to grow and flourish in life. Out of our Catholic values, we’ll model how to treat others, and themselves, with respect and dignity. We’ll provide any educational opportunity needed for your child to succeed at their strengths and passions.
Adoption has always been a part of our plan and we truly feel called to grow our family this way. We will provide the best life possible and make sure your child always knows they are loved. You would always have a special place in our hearts! If you’re comfortable, we would love to share an open adoption, including updates as your child grows up. We’d love to talk with you about how you want your child’s adoption to go. Please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
Thinking of you, Joe & Julia
