Hello, we are Mari and Jason! First, we’d like to thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. Even though we do not know you, you are in our thoughts and prayers as you make your plan of adoption. We hope that this profile will give you a glimpse of who we are.
It is always fun to tell the story of how Jason and I met. Jason was my cooperating teacher and I was his student teacher. We became fast friends and worked well together. After my student teaching was up and I graduated from college, Jason wasted no time in asking me out, and I said yes! The rest is history! :)
Jason and I both share a great love for kids as we are both teachers. I teach kindergarten, and Jason taught fourth grade for many years before moving into an administrative position at our school.
We love our time at school with our students, and we also enjoy our down time at home. Jason is a huge sports fan (he played football in school) and enjoys watching games whether on TV or at live events. He is a huge history buff and loves movies as well. I have a big passion for music and sing in our church’s praise band (I also star in solo performances of singing along to the radio while driving around town). I enjoy crafting as well and have turned our house into full-on shabby chic décor. Jason and I love trying new restaurants together, walking our dog Snickers, and spending time with family and friends.
We are so excited to start our own family so we can share our love for life with our child. We want our child to know that he/she is a special child of God with value and worth! We would feel extremely blessed if we were able to do that for your child! Since we are both educators, we look forward to providing a well-rounded education for our child, an education that will be a great foundation for the rest of his/her life. One that not only includes academic knowledge, but how to be a kind and respectful person who works hard and tries their best.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us! We greatly appreciate it and with you the best on this journey!
Mari and Jason
