Jeff + Josie
We are Jeff, Josie, and Aurrie! Our hope is that this profile will show you how incredible we think you are. It will hopefully offer a glimpse into our lives, but please know this is just a small piece of who we are. By no means are we perfect! We want you to see the authentic sides of us. The goofy sides. The hard sides. We are excited about how this journey could unfold, and that includes getting to know you more as well!
Josie and Jeff met at just nineteen and twenty years old. They worked together and developed a friendship from the start and their friendship eventually evolved into a relationship. From our first date, to our marriage, and now to present day, we have always remained the best of friends and soulmates. Our story is just beginning and we can't wait to see how the next chapter of this journey unfolds!
Meet Josie - by Jeff
Josie is the type of person that lights up a room or conversation. She is the extrovert to my introvert. We balance each other out perfectly! Josie is the type of person you can trust to be there for you. She loves to laugh and make others smile through her kindness, love and humor. More specific to childcare, she has worked with kids all her life from working in a daycare, to being a nanny for several families, to eventually starting her career as an elementary teacher. She is a great mother to Aurrie and provides a balance between fun, stability, and love.
Meet Jeff - by Josie
Jeff has a great outlook on life. He is very logical and can always see the best in choices and people. Jeff is caring and will always be there for you no matter what. To make sure I was able to pursue my passion in teaching, he provided for us, so that I could go to school full time and graduate within a good timeline. He never argues and is calm in tough scenarios; always very rational. Jeff is always ready to start a new adventure, try new places, and have a good time. He is very professional in his work and makes sure we are taken care of financially. Jeff is an incredible father to Aurrie. He shows love and care for our family through adventures and togetherness.
We adopted Aurrie in 2019. Aurrie is a fun, spunky, dramatic, funny, and loving 3-year-old. She loves to be outdoors, being with family and friends, and has many hobbies. She goes to daycare and is passionate about learning and enjoys socializing with friends and teachers. Aurrie has immediately fit into our family. We love outdoor activities like going to the zoo and hiking. We enjoy arts and crafts such as painting and playing music. Many of our friends have kids close to her age and she is enjoying her new friends. Both of our parents have become very involved in Aurrie's life and have been very loving and supportive. We are very excited about extending our family and the prospect of Aurrie having a new brother or sister.
Our Home & Pups
We love our home! Our neighborhood has a large park with walking trails, a playground, swimming pool, and more. The elementary school nearby is one of the higher rated schools in the area. We like to take the dogs for walks and find that the community is pretty active with families about and kids playing around the neighborhood. We are in a well-diversified suburb and have access to many great places and events for children, such as the Science and History Museum and the Zoo.
We have two dogs that have been with us for a while now. They both enjoy going on walks and love being with people. Cloud is a 13-year-old Jack Russel Terrier. He loves playing with his toys and running around. Blitz is an 11-year-old Beagle. He loves cuddling and snuggling up on his bed. Both dogs enjoy playing and snuggling with Aurrie.
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as a possible family for your baby. If you decide to pursue an adoption plan with us, we would welcome you with open arms. One last thing before you go, we would like to make a few promises to you! We promise to be open with you and give your child a loving and supportive home. We want your child to always know where he or she came from and the hard decision you endured. He or she will be surrounded by amazing family and friends that will always be there for them. Our ultimate goal is to provide your child with the best possible upbringing in every aspect of their life. When we hear the word adoption we immediately think of sacrificial love. We feel like this decision requires great courage and can't imagine how hard it must be. Please know we love you and are thinking of you as you navigate the path you choose to take.
