I Heart Adoption Profile


Greetings from Jeff and Dana! Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about us. Our son Christopher joined our family through open adoption two years ago. We love being parents and are excited to welcome another child into our home. We imagine that you have much to think about and admire your strength for considering open adoption. We look forward to hearing from you! We met while in graduate school and have been happily married for 11 years. Our relationship is based on love, trust and respect. We are truly each other’s best friend. In our free time, we enjoy hiking, traveling and spending time together as a family. We look forward to having our children meet new people and learn about different cultures as we travel in the U.S. and abroad. Dana is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and is eager to help our children become bilingual, too. We feel fortunate to be a multicultural family and believe that this will further enrich our children’s lives.


Jeff grew up in Upstate New York. He is an engineer and works for a small company. Jeff is very creative and loves to invent special games to play with Christopher and other kids. Obstacle courses made from couch cushions are always a big hit! Jeff loves to cook, and we enjoy delicious homemade dinners almost every night of the week, everything from stir-fry to fresh grilled fish. We can already envision our child in his or her high chair, joining us at the dinner table. Jeff also enjoys playing many different sports. He can’t wait to coach our son or daughter’s first sports team!


Dana has lived in Northern Virginia since kindergarten. She is a pediatrician in a medical practice located close to home. As a doctor, Dana cares for babies and helps them become healthy, happy children, and young adults. We look forward to doing the same with our own children. Dana has a flexible work schedule and will be able to take time off when our child is born. In her free time, Dana is often on her laptop catching up with family and friends though social networking. She can’t wait to post and share photos of our child with everyone. She also enjoys reading, and reads everything from classics to Harry Potter and the Twilight series. We have a large library of children’s books and look forward to reading favorites such as “Goodnight Moon” to our child at bedtime.


Christopher is a sweet, happy, good-natured little boy. He loves building with Legos and going down slides at the playground. Christopher is very gentle with babies and plays well with other children. He can’t wait to become a big brother and show his sibling how to throw a tennis ball or sing along to “The Wheels on the Bus”.
