Jerry & Gayla
Our hearts go out to you as we think of the difficult yet selfless decision you are considering. We are honored to give you a little peek into our lives, hearts, and home. Adoption has split our hearts wide open as we have welcomed both our boys home through adoption. We are truly humbled by the thought of you considering us as parents for your child.
We have been friends for 15 years and married for 13 of those. We have a solid relationship built on trust and our love for each other. Our lives have been made so much sweeter since our sons, Jax, 6, and Bowen, 3, have joined us. Our home is filled with love, laughter, good times and memories made.
We live on an 80 acre farm in rural Michigan. We feel extremely blessed to own a farm and acreage, giving our children lots of room to run, explore, and enjoy the great outdoors. Jax and Bowen spend hours outside, exploring the farm, playing in the sandbox, swinging, swimming, and helping “feed the cattle”. Farming is a busy but fun life that involves the whole family. The boys love riding in the tractors and trucks and during planting and harvest time many of our meals are eaten in the field.
We love our boys and their first families unconditionally. In our minds it is impossible to love one without the other. Adoption is talked of freely in our home and Jax and Bowen have known their stories from the beginning. They are so excited to think of another baby joining our family and so are we! We are open to developing whatever kind of relationship you are comfortable with.
We hope you’ve caught a glimpse of the love we have to share and the respect we have for you. It is our hope and prayer you will find an incredible amount of peace and comfort during this time.
