A Letter from Jacob & Blake
Hi! We are Jacob and Blake in Ohio! Our lives are full of fun adventures and quality time spent at home with family and friends. Blake’s family is all over the US, and Jacob’s family is mainly in Ohio, so we have support near and far. Adoption has always been in God’s plans for us, and we love that we have gotten the opportunity to be presented to you here today! We are looking forward to providing our child with a supportive and nurturing home that makes the best of each day. We appreciate you taking the time to consider us as parents for your child.
We got married at the beginning of 2020, and it has been a delightful voyage so far! Due to medical conditions, Blake is unable to carry a pregnancy safely, so our hearts have always been turned to adoption. Our ideas of fun include trying all kinds of new activities and making memories! We love playing card games, binge-watching shows, mini-golfing, playing with our dogs, and going to trampoline parks. We have so much fun just being together and cannot wait for our child to join us for activities such as annual beach trips, family game nights, or even weekly hangouts with friends!
Blake is the most bubbly and happy person I have ever met. She constantly wants to just take care of the people she cares about and even strangers too! She has a motivational drive that makes her strive to be the best at everything she does through being detailed, task-oriented, and very precise. Overall, she is always ready for whatever the day throws her way!
Blake is a barista at a coffee shop in our town which is really amazing because the company is a strong advocate when it comes to adoptions! They offer amazing benefits and abundant support through it all. Outside of working at the coffee shop, she uses her free time to keep the house running smoothly along with taking part in some of her hobbies as well. Her hobbies include cooking fun recipes she finds online, reading mystery novels, listening to funny podcasts, and taking walks around the neighborhood. She loves to find fun activities around town, explore new places, and spend time with me, our dogs, family, and friends!
I know Blake will be an incredibly caring, supportive, and protective mother. She looks forward to supporting our child’s community activities, reading with them, and teaching them through interaction with the world around them.
Jacob is so fun to be around and thrives on the opportunity to put a smile on the faces of everyone. His random bursts of energy and laughter are contagious. Rooms radiate with happiness whenever he is around. Additionally, he loves to help people and constantly goes above and beyond to lend a hand to anyone in need.
Jacob currently works for a respectable construction business laying fiber optics in the ground for clients, along with operating heavy machinery. We are extremely grateful for him to work at such an amazing company because it allows us to spend time together on weekends and still keeps us financially free from the weekday hours. Additionally, they support our adoption 100% and have offered extended parental leave just to build that important bond between him and our child.
Jacob loves sports, working out, and basically doing anything active! He also enjoys playing video games, which have been an outlet for him to relax at the end of the day.
He cannot wait to teach our baby all about living life to its fullest potential. He wants to show them how fun life can be and how to balance that spontaneity with walking in faith. He loves to see children do what they love and will be immensely proud of our child for anything and everything they accomplish.
We have two dogs named Dyno and Rex. They act as a power team when it comes to the love, care, and protection of their family. They are both so very sweet, well-trained, and amazing with kids.
Our extended family is HUGE! We have family all across the United States. We either travel to each other or at least keep in contact online!
Everyone in our family is ecstatic about the adoption and has already spoiled our baby to come through gifts and all levels of support! They share our excitement to include our child in annual vacations to the beach or mountains, and have a new little member to bring along to our weekend get-togethers with friends!
We own a wonderful home in Ohio just built last year! It was important to us that our house could be made into a home for our growing family. It has three bedrooms which already includes a designated nursery. Not only do we have an open concept inside the house, but we also have a large fenced-in yard equipped with plenty of space for all kinds of fun activities.
Our home has a great balance between “country” and “city” living. We live in a quiet neighborhood but are within a 10-minute drive of nearly any store or restaurant! We have a great children’s museum in town, fun events hosted every week in our community, and a wide variety of parks, pediatricians, and schools in the area.
We promise to raise your child with the utmost care, affection, and love. We will give everything we have to ensure that he or she has a beautiful life beyond their wildest hopes and dreams. We look forward to instilling in them: respect, manners, dignity, and kindness from a very early age.
We are looking forward to spending quality time with your child and making sure they are brought up in a wonderful environment with an endless supply of opportunities and guidance through all walks of life.
We hope to be supportive hands for you through this journey and keep in touch with you at your comfort level.

|Fun Facts About Us|
Jacob: I can solve a Rubik's cube in less than 1 minute!
Blake: I have been to 22 different countries!
We are both animal lovers by far and do not think our home would be complete without our furry friends by our sides. We have two “gentle giants” named Dyno and Rex. We got Dyno when he was only 5 weeks old, and Rex came to join our family when he was about 4 months old. Dyno is a true baby and is spoiled rotten because he knows no different! Rex, however, started as a foster puppy that we completely fell in love with. He had been in 5 other homes before us! Both of the boys are absolutely wonderful with children, they love them! They are already obsessed with the nursery and are immediately glued to any kids that come into our home when we have friends and family over.
|Typical Weekend with Us|
Fridays are all about winding down from the week. This is usually spent eating dinner as a family at home and completing any work, chores, and household duties before any weekend plans. Jacob usually meets up with his old friends to catch up, play games, and spend time with one another. During this time, Blake usually hangs out with her friends as well, doing what they call a “girl’s night,” full of face masks, nail polish, and funny games.
On Saturdays, we try to plan something fun to do out and about in town. We love to do random activities including riding go-karts, playing mini golf, going to an arcade, or even just enjoying a nice lunch somewhere. This day is crucial for us to get a break from the weekly routine and just relax in the presence of one another. Going to the gym has been a favorite of ours recently! On Saturday nights, we wind down by watching a movie, doing a puzzle, or watching funny TikTok videos on our phones together.
On Sundays, we start our day by attending church in the morning before heading to a Mexican restaurant with Jacob's family. This tradition has been going on for nearly 10 years and we don't see it changing any time soon! Afterward, we spend time with our family to catch up on how everyone has been throughout the previous week. During Sunday evenings, Jacob does any yard work that needs to be done and any random household projects that are in progress at that time. Blake preps for the week by creating a "menu," grocery shopping, cleaning, and making any plans needed to keep the house in order for the week ahead.
