We are Jim and DeAnn from Maryland and we are hoping to expand our family through adoption. We hope this website will help you get to know us as you work through the many emotions you must be experiencing and try to decide if we might be the right family for your baby.
We met through a mutual friend and have been married twelve years. From the beginning, we have clicked as a team. We simply enjoy being with and working together. Jim does IT work and, most days, is able to work from home. DeAnn is blessed to stay at home with our four children. Some might think we would get tired of each other, but we love it and wouldn’t have it any other way. We even mow the lawn together — DeAnn starts in the front yard, Jim in the back, and we meet in the middle. Once a month, we set aside time for a date night. It’s refreshing to have time to ourselves, reminding us that we aren’t just “mom and dad,” but that we have a commitment to each other as a couple. While we occasionally disagree, we have always strived to maintain a united front, particularly in front of our children. Our marriage has grown stronger through the years as we’ve learned to listen to each other, see things from the other’s perspective, and to reach solutions that satisfy both of us. We are each dedicated to the other’s happiness and desire to grow stronger in our relationship as we grow old together.
