Hello! We are a professor, and an educator with two lovable dogs. We admire the love you have for your child in considering open adoption and are committed to supporting you through this journey. We are eager to provide a nurturing home for your child, filled with love, learning, laughter, family and friends. You and your child will be unconditionally loved and welcomed into our family. Call anytime! Or text us at (510) 898-8766 We both share a love of teaching and of helping students learn. Jason is an instructor at a local community college and Colleen works in the administration of another college. We are fortunate that the school schedules allow for Jason to have summers off, as well as a nice long break in the winter. Colleen has a generous vacation schedule as well and her employer is very "family friendly." We are excited that we can both arrange our schedules to be home during our baby’s first months. Because education is so important to us, you can be assured that we will do everything we can to provide a great education for our child.
My Wife Colleen
Colleen cares a lot about those around her, even people she's never met. She is very creative and sews beautiful quilts and toys, and donates many of them to children's hospitals. She loves spending time with our young friends whether reading a story, playing baseball and catch on our front lawn, or just sharing a snack. She also loves to bake and our house is often filled with the smell of a homemade pie or cookies in the oven. She always has a song in her heart, often making up silly, off-key songs about funny things. She can't wait to sing lullabies to our child, even if they are out of tune. She looks forward to every part of motherhood, from cheering on first steps, to endless games of Chutes & Ladders, to volunteering in our child’s classrooms. I know she will be a warm, caring mother.
My Husband Jason
Jason is very loving and affectionate and is a loyal friend. He loves going camping, hiking and fishing every chance he gets. He can’t wait to help our little one fall in love with the outdoors. He loves growing our own Halloween pumpkins every year, last year he grew one that was 94 lbs! He is very playful with our friend's kids, like a favorite uncle, they look forward to seeing him every day after school. He has a great time playing with our niece and nephew, either outside playing baseball or soccer or inside playing video games. Every year, he goes with his twin brother and his kids out camping, he enjoys showing the kids the natural wonders in the mountains. He is so ready to be a hands-on dad. In fact, he was the first to help out when our nephew had colic, taking the midnight shift so his brother and sister-in-law could sleep. He looks forward to coaching sports teams, leading scout troops and supporting our child’s interests – whatever they may be. I know he will be a loving father.
Family and Friends
Our families and friends are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our newest family member. Together they create a large network of loving adults and children who are eager to baby sit, spend summer days swinging in the park, or play Legos, army guys or princesses. Colleen's life-long friend Tracy is already calling herself Auntie, and can't wait to baby-sit, though she hasn't yet volunteered for 3 AM feedings. We are confident the warmest welcome will be from our two long-eared dogs, Fudge and Mocha, who will be quick to kiss, snuggle, to teach our child how to play fetch and most importantly how to fill their food bowls or give them a treat from the treat jar.
