UPDATE: Mandy and Jesse have been selected by a birth family and are awaiting placement.


Dear Birth Mom,

We would like to begin by expressing our admiration for the strength it takes on your behalf to consider adoption for your baby. It is a courageous and selfless decision and we would be honored to be considered as the loving family for your precious child.

Our family means everything to us. We have endless amounts of love to give and are so excited to grow our family by one. We believe that a child can never have too many people who love him or her. Your child will be so incredibly loved by us as their parents and by their older brothers and sister, Brett, Brock and Carolyn. We promise you that your little one will be adored, cared for and raised in a home that supports their greatest potential.

Our family is full of fun adventures, world travel, worship and so much love and respect for one another. We also have a passion for sports, outdoor activities, living a healthy lifestyle and the arts. We want our children to experience all this amazing world has to offer. That is why we are committed to giving them many opportunities to be involved in theatre, music, dance, sports and beyond. Whether our children are passionate about the arts, sports, travel or academics; we are there to support them every step of the way.

Throughout our lives there are many different paths and roads that we can travel on. We feel that our path has been led by God to meet the right birth mom at the right time. Thank you again for considering us to be the adoptive parents for your child.

We hope that through this journey you find peace and comfort.

With Love,

Jesse and Mandy


unknown-2Jessie is the most incredible husband in the world. I love him so dearly and have so much respect for him. People always comment on what a huge heart Jesse has and it’s true. Jesse is very generous. He pours his heart into absolutely everything he does. Whether that is coaching the kids in baseball, volunteering his time, cooking an amazing meal for our family or helping someone with their fitness goals; Jesse is ALL IN!

unknown-5Jesse inspires many people to live a healthy and positive lifestyle. He has helped so many people change their habits and become the best version of themselves. This pours over into our family where he helps us to always have a positive attitude and encourages our children to follow their dreams and reach their greatest potential.

I am so blessed to have Jesse as my husband and father to our children! Jesse has been wanting to adopt for several years and he is going to be such a loving and nurturing father to our new little one. Jesse is full of so much love!


unknown-8Mandy is stunning inside and out. Love spills from her heart in all the she does. She is very involved in the community and loves working with children. Her love and enduring support of not only her family but also her students is nothing short of AMAZING!

Mandy and I have been together for seven years and I feel that each year we have been blessed even more than the year before. God put Mandy in my life at the right time and she quickly adopted my kids as her own. We have been talking for many years about expanding our family through adoption. Mandy unknown-7already has a huge heart but there has always been a missing piece. She grew up taking care of three adopted children and has always felt it in her heart to expand our family through adoption.

I have not only found a beautiful and amazing wife and mother to my children, but I know she will be the most loving and caring mother to your child.
