We live in a family-friendly and culturally diverse neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, minutes away from downtown Washington, DC.
While we have many children in our life, we have none of our own. Our best friends’ children call us “Uncles Steven and Jamie,” and we refer to the kids as our “nieces and nephews.”
We do not have pets, but enjoy going to the National Zoo to see the animals.
Steven works as an information technology professional at a private school in Washington, DC; and Jamie works for a consulting firm and in the process of transitioning to mental health counseling.
We enjoy volunteering, going to plays and musicals, watching movies and tv, traveling, camping and hiking, cooking, and spending time with friends.
Steven looks forward to cuddling and reading at bedtime; and Jamie to attending school activities and going outside to play.
Dear Expecting Parent,
We are Steven and Jamie, and it is nice to “meet” you. Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We hope it gives you a sense of who we are and what we value. In 2018, we will celebrate 10 years as a couple. While we have many children in our life, we have none of our own. As a same-sex couple, we feel adoption is the best way to build our family. We see parenting as the next great adventure of our journey together. We are attracted to open adoption because support for the child and expecting parent are paramount. The transparency of the matching process means both the expecting and adoptive parents are choosing to be in relationship with each other, and the opportunity for your child to have a relationship with his or her birth family.
We cannot imagine the difficulty of having to make such a big decision. We acknowledge the courage it takes to meet with two strangers and consider making them a part of your life. While we may not understand the complexity of emotions and challenges that lie ahead of you, we can identify with wanting the best for your child. It is our promise to you that if we adopt your child, we will celebrate your child’s life every day.
