A Letter from Scott & Jessica
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We feel very blessed to be able to start our adoption journey. We promise that your child will be unconditionally loved by us and the people in our lives. We are so excited to grow our family and look forward to welcoming your little one into our home and making lots of memories! We are excited to show your child how to take care of livestock, fish, garden, bake cookies, and play sports.
We became friends in 7th grade, and officially started dating on Jessica’s 17th birthday. We have been married for 11 years and love our lives together. We like to play Rummy/Phase 10 and watch movies/sports games together, go to baseball games, and go to Red Lobster! We have been unable to conceive yet we are so very excited to now grow our family through adoption. We look forward to welcoming your child into our home and share with them the love of our family and friends. We are excited to teach them how to play UNO, play sports, enjoy a warm campfire, and work with livestock. We are especially looking forward to playing in the yard, having movie nights outside together, and enjoying family dinners with your little one.
My first description of Scott, when we were in school, was he reminded me of a teddy bear. Which that has not changed. He is kind, humble, funny, hardworking, loveable and has such a soft heart. Scott is an Electrician just like his grandfather and father. He is very good at what he does, puts a lot of effort into his job, and takes great pride in it. He has a way of seeing both sides of a situation and helping others to see it as well. He likes to play any kind of sport, whether its softball in a league or cornhole in the backyard. Scott likes to work on vehicles, BBQ with buddies, or just sit around and talk. He is thrilled to teach our child how to play catch and how to fish! He will be a very hands-on father.
Jessica is down to earth, family oriented, and hard working. I knew I wanted to marry Jessica in High School, and it has been a truly blessed journey with her. She enjoys watching movies, doing yard work, gardening and driving around country roads or seeing the sights of Kansas. Jessica is a wonderful cook and baker. She also enjoys making cakes for events and planning parties. Jessica is excited to share everything with your child, like going to the park, teaching them how to bake cookies, and share with them her love for Disney movies. She looks forward to having a coloring book partner! I know that she will be a wonderful mother.
We have a very big extended family. Many of whom live very close to us so we have get togethers often! We also are godparents to 4 wonderful kiddos! We keep cattle with Jessica’s parents and brother on their family farm about 7 miles away from our home as well as cattle with Scott’s brother and a close friend, who live within a half mile of us. Our family is very excited for us to start our family. They are excited to include your child in our holiday traditions which include Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Sunday lunches, and so much more.
We live in Northeast Kansas on 45 acres. We recently built a new house, which Scott, family, and friends helped to build. There is plenty of space both inside and out to run around and have a great time. We have hayfields, crop ground around us and we plan to put in a big garden with lots of veggies and flowers. There isn’t much noise pollution around, but at night you can hear coyotes howling, and see the bright stars and moon in the sky!
We have 2 dogs, Oscar and Waylon. Oscar is our 14-year-old dog and is a dachshund/beagle mix who loves to be next to you. He is very friendly and loves to get wrapped in his blankets. Waylon is our 6-month-old great dane. He loves to play with his toys and run around in the mud.
We promise to love and cherish your child with all our might. They will feel safe and secure always. Their life will be filled with happiness, love, fun, education, support, and hope. They will know the importance of family, faith, and friendship. We promise they will know their adoption story and we are open to discussing the amount of future contact you wish to have.

We both enjoy helping out family and friends with anything that needs to be done, like remodeling or mowing, playing cards or just hanging out. Jessica enjoys going to concerts, but Scott prefers to listen to music at home. We love going to baseball games, whether it's a Major League game or high school. We like to watch comedy and action movies, we both love the Rocky movies and Lethal Weapon movies.
Grandparents, parents, step-parents, aunts/uncles, and LOTS of cousins make up our very big family. Scott has three brothers and one sister, with 12 nieces/nephews. Jessica has two brothers and one sister, with 3 nieces/nephews. Family celebrations are always a blast, so many people to easily have 2 baseball teams!
|Special about the Place We Grew up|
Our families have been in this area for quite some time, Jessica's for more than 150 years! Both of our dads are the same age and actually went to school together from the 3rd grade on. It's a wonderful place to have a family!

Kansas. We are about an hour from Kansas City, MO and 45 minutes from Topeka, KS .
We are 30 minutes from 3 different cities. We live on a gravel road in an unincorporated township close to Jessica's family. Our best friend Chris, and his family live across a field from us and Scott's brother, Preston, lives next to him with his family. You can see the highway from our front porch, but we don't get much noise. Sitting on the porch is a great way to enjoy the evening!
|About Our Home|
We built our 3 bedroom home about a year ago. We have a big living room and walk out basement to enjoy movies, games, and conversations. The nursery will be a farm/country theme. Jessica has collected pictures of old barns in our area and those will be hung in the nursery.
