Meet Michael & Jason...
We are Michael and Jason and we are very excited about becoming first time fathers. Michael is a registered nurse working in Boston and Jason is an engineer in the United States Air Force. We met 14 years ago and quickly became inseparable. We are fortunate to have been able to live and work in several great locations throughout this country and are thrilled to have made it back to Boston where we are surrounded by family and friends that can join and support us in this adoption journey.
We love being outdoors. Whether it is exploring a new hiking trail, spending a lazy day at the beach, or just enjoying a dinner out on the patio, we aim to spend as much time as possible out in the fresh air. Michael has a passion for growing flowers and vegetables. Most summer days you will find him in the yard digging a new flower bed or chasing the squirrels away from his vegetable plants. Jason enjoys being on the water, there is nothing better to him then spending a day paddling a kayak.
Qualities we See in Each Other
Michael about Jason: Jason is an honest, dependable, hardworking, and extremely caring man. I knew early on that he was the man I would spend my life with and one day start a family with. He is adventurous and active and always planning out weekend adventures for us or vacation trips to new and fun locations.
Jason about Michael: Michael has a loving and kind soul and is a total saint for being as supportive of my career path as he has been. He is also a great “from scratch” cook, my family and friends are envious of the meals Michael prepares for the two of us and request he cook for them every time we visit.
Our Extended Family
We are lucky to be living close to Michael’s family. His parents and a gaggle of aunts/uncles/cousins all live within an hour drive of our home and have been waiting for years to meet our first child. Jason’s parents, brother, sister, and four nieces and nephews live in Florida and Mississippi. We make a point to get together at least once or twice a year with Jason’s family to celebrate special occasions or just for some quality family time.
Our Adoption Story
Growing our family through adoption has always been the plan for us, it was just a matter of when. We are open to both open and closed adoptions, whichever is felt to be in the best interest of the child and respectful of your needs.
Special activities we look forward to doing with our child
We look forward to traveling with our child and to pass on our love of the outdoors. We are also excited to just spend time at home and in the kitchen cooking family meals together. Most of all, we look forward to being able to take our child to countless family gatherings and fostering a relationship between them and all their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Our home and neighborhood
We live in a small family-oriented neighborhood outside of Boston. We have a large backyard perfect for running and playing and there are several playgrounds and a national park within a short walk of our home. Our community is full of children of various ages. On a nice summer day it is a common sight to see kids outside playing together and a parade of strollers on the sidewalks. There are also several community events hosted throughout the year including an annual summer BBQ with live music, bounce houses, and firework show.
