A Letter from Kyle & Sarah Jane
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We are a silly, fun-loving couple excited to become first-time parents through the miracle of adoption. We value education, travel, and time spent with family and friends. Our home is also filled with great things like laughter, music, playful pets, and good food.
We are excited to get to know you and look forward to sharing letters, pictures, and visits!
We have been together for nearly 16 years and married for 12 of those. When we were both in college, we happened to cross paths at Kyle’s brother’s 21st birthday party, and we’ve been inseparable ever since. One of our favorite things to do together is travel – some of our most memorable trips ever have been England/Ireland, Jackson Hole WY, and the time we drove across the entire United States to California. We love seeing new and beautiful parts of the world, and we are excited to share these wonderful experiences with your child. We also love going to estate sales, book stores, and any other kind of ‘treasure hunting’, as we love vintage and historic things!
When we were unable to conceive, it seemed like a very natural idea for us to open our hearts and our home to adoption. We are excited to embark on our greatest adventure yet, which will be parenthood!
Kyle is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met – I’m always telling him to try out for Jeopardy because he knows EVERYTHING! He’s an amazing musician, and I love it when he fills our house with the sound of him playing guitar and singing. Kyle is super passionate about his hobbies – he’s an avid fisherman, and he also loves to be out on his boat and exploring the outdoors. He is also the definition of “Mr. Fix-It”; everyone in our family comes to him whenever they need help with their vehicles or something in their house that’s broken. Kyle loves spending time with our nephews and doing things like playing soccer and building Legos. He is a big kid at heart and will be a wonderful active father. I know he is so excited to share his passion for the water with our child!
Sarah Jane is a wonderful, loving wife, and she is very excited to become a mother. She is loving, kind, and patient. She enjoys reading, traveling the world, shopping, and cooking. Sarah can read faster than anyone I know, as she can complete an entire novel in just an afternoon! She is also very family-focused, and she loves spending time with our parents, siblings, and three nephews. Nothing excites her more than an afternoon visit from her nephews! She is also very nurturing – she loves spoiling our dog and cat, and looks forward to bringing that same joy to our family addition. Finally, she cannot wait for bedtime stories, snuggles, and all of the excitement and love that motherhood will bring.
We live in a large, two-story home that was built in the 1960’s. Our house has a ton of character with two big living rooms, hardwood floors, and a big fireplace that we love to decorate at Christmas. We are in the middle of the city, and close to all of the amenities – parks, shopping, restaurants, sports arenas, etc. We have a large backyard with big trees and are only minutes away from the river. We also live only 5 minutes away from Sarah Jane’s sister and her family, and Kyle’s family lives directly next door to us. During the summer, we seem to always be hosting an impromptu BBQ with friends and neighbors – our house is the gathering place for everyone.
We have one of our bedrooms upstairs already prepared as a nursery, and our other extra bedroom acts as a guest bedroom for when family and friends come to visit.
Our house is also home to our two pets Arthur and Fitz. Arthur is a 5-year-old Shetland Sheepdog who loves to run and play. Fitz is a fluffy silver Persian, and he loves to snuggle and be in our laps.
We are extremely lucky in that our entire family – our parents, our siblings, and our nephews – all live within 1 hour of our house. Because of this, we spend time with our family quite often, and they will be an instrumental part in our child’s life. Kyle has two younger brothers, and Sarah Jane has one younger sister, and we also have three nephews – ages 4, 3, and 1. Our family loves to get together for pizza parties, to watch football and hockey games, and to play dominoes. We also love to go to the beach during the summer with Kyle’s whole family – we rent a house on the ocean and spend a wonderful week together!
Both of our families are extremely excited for us to adopt, and are excited to welcome your child and spoil them with love!
Our Promise to you is that we will give your child a lifetime of love and support. We will raise them in a house filled with laughter, songs, adventure, and education. We will travel as a family, and give them exposure to the beautiful country that is the United States, as well as other countries and cultures outside of our own. We promise to have family adventures like visiting the animals at zoo, taking our boat out on the lake, dancing at Jazz festival, and cooking meals together.
We are open to letters, photos, and visits at your comfort level, and look forward to getting to know you.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Kyle is an avid fisherman; he has fished in at least 10 states across rivers, lakes, and oceans. He loves to be outdoors and amongst the wild, and fishing is something he has enjoyed since he was a child. His biggest fish ever was a 41" Muskie, caught in Ohio! His most memorable experience was seeing river otters while fishing in Wyoming. Kyle has also played guitar for more than 20 years and he enjoys playing all types of music. He has been playing in a band for the last 10 years, and he can't wait to play music with our child.
Sarah Jane loves to read, and she is never happier than when she is curled up on the couch with a good book. She also loves to cook and try making new recipes for her family. Sarah Jane has traveled the world extensively because of her job, and she loves seeing new places and cultures. She has loved collecting artifacts from her travels and she feels extremely blessed to have had such unique experiences. She also loves doing things like visiting estate sales/antique stores and going to food and music festivals.
We are non-denominational Christians - we are both very spiritual and believe in a higher power who created the earth. We follow the principals of Christianity and we look to the church for guidance. We believe that faith is a personal journey and we want to give our child every experience possible to develop their own beliefs.
We are blessed that our entire family lives within 1 hour's drive from our house (parents, siblings, nephews). Our families are both looking forward to spoiling another member with love, affection, and silliness. Sarah Jane's sister and her family live only 5 minutes away from us, and we are extremely close. We eat meals together often throughout the week, and we believe cousins can be as close as siblings!
|About Our Home|
We absolutely love our house, and we think we have gotten the best of both worlds. We live right in the middle of the city, with close access to every amenity one could need. We are also nestled near the river and the woods, and we have wildlife in our yard every day! Our neighborhood is quiet and private, and our best friends and their daughter live directly next door to us, so there is always someone to play with. Our house was built in the 1960's, and it has cool details like hardwood floors and a big fireplace. We have a big backyard for living in the city limits - full of big trees and room for playing sports/games. We think that our home is big, comfortable, and especially full of love.
|We live in the state of...|
Ohio. The Midwest is a beautiful place full of trees, farmland, and also big cities! We live in the capital city of Columbus where there are a multitude of options for education and entertainment. We live very close to the local University, which is the largest school in the country and where we both attended college. Columbus has a wonderful zoo, beautiful parks, and lots of opportunities to see sports or other live activities. We are also a very quick plane ride away from even larger cities such as Chicago or New York City, or just a 1 day's drive from the Atlantic ocean.

|Future Contact with Birth Family|
We are very open to future contact with you. Our relationship with you is extremely important to us!
We would love to share photos and letters, and even in-person meetings if you are comfortable. We would also like to have a relationship with your extended family if possible so that your child has the chance to know their heritage. We are very flexible with communication and whatever would make the most sense for all parties involved.
Thank you for taking the time to review our profile! We have wanted to adopt for many years, and it would bless our hearts to open our home to your child. We will provide your child with a safe and secure environment, full of love, and open to many experiences. Your child would grow up in a home where they were surrounded by extended family (grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins) and close friends, and they would be loved from every angle. We would also love to build a relationship with you as you are comfortable, and we are extremely open to future contact and visits.
