Preferences for a Child
Hello! We are Tom and Jill. We’ve been married for 15 years. Tom is director of an environmental education center, and Jill is a writing instructor at a technical college. We live in the country.
In 2014, we adopted our amazing son, Beau. The last two and a half years have been filled with discovery—reading books, exploring the outdoors, finding new hide-outs for our daily games of hide-and-seek. We love Beau’s pre-6 AM shouts of “WAKE-UP TIME! SUN COMING UP!” He has us smiling as soon as we open our eyes each morning. Tom and I are close to our own siblings, and we’d like to give Beau the opportunity to grow up with a sibling, too.
Beau has brought so much happiness into our lives. We are grateful to his birthparents for helping us create our family by inviting us into theirs. Thank you, too, for considering us.
