Meet Jim and Mary Eileen...
Jim is an engineer and Mary Eileen is a lawyer. We’ve been married since 2015, and we bought a home in a wonderful neighborhood north of Boston in 2018. We are looking forward to expanding our family through adoption!
We met at the wedding of two of our best friends in 2011, while living outside Washington DC. We immediately bonded over our shared faith and our love of baseball. While dating, we enjoyed trying new restaurants, hiking, running, and visiting each other’s families. After marrying in 2015, we moved to Massachusetts to be closer to Mary Eileen’s family.
Jim enjoys reading, watching sports, and playing video games with friends and family. Mary Eileen enjoys baking, photography, and home improvement projects. Together, we enjoy travelling, running, golf, and watching baseball.
Qualities We See In Each Other:
Jim is the most loving, intelligent, and devoted man that I know. He is a man of faith, who is guided by his principles, and I know he will instill these principles in our child. At the same time, he never takes himself too seriously and is always ready to be silly and have fun.
Mary Eileen is selfless, caring, brilliant, and has a wonderful sense of humor that always makes me laugh. She will bend over backwards to make sure that the people she loves are always supported and taken care of. She is a great problem solver, and I know that she’ll be able to deal with any crisis life throws at her.
Our Extended Family:
Jim’s family lives in Maryland and North Carolina. We visit with his family several times a year, including over the holidays and on their annual beach trip. Mary Eileen’s large extended family lives locally and her immediate family lives in Maine, Virginia, and California. We visit them several times a year and enjoy gathering everyone for Thanksgiving at the cabin in Maine. Both of our families are looking forward to welcoming a new addition to the family, who can join in the family traditions!
Our Adoption Story:
We have always wanted to raise children, but, unfortunately, are not able to have biological children. We are hopeful that adoption will allow us to become parents and are looking forward to sharing all of our next adventures with our child!
Activities With our Child:
We look forward to spending time in the mountains of Maine at Mary Eileen’s family lake house, skiing, hiking, snow shoeing, and swimming! We are also looking forward to summers with Jim’s family at the beach, riding the waves and building sand castles. We’re most excited to spend every day life with our child, enjoying family meals, laughing, spending time outside, and snuggled together on the couch reading or watching movies.
We live in a two-story colonial house, which has plenty of room for our future child to run around! We have a nice yard for raising vegetables or playing catch, and we live close to great parks, playgrounds, and sports fields. Our town has many neighborhood events throughout the year and is a great place to grow up!
