A Letter from Jayson & Brandi
Hi! We are Brandi & Jayson, a fun-loving, multicultural couple excited to become first-time parents. After struggling with infertility, we feel that adoption is God’s plan for us. We are excited to shower your child with unconditional love, read them bedtime stories, and take them on family vacations. We thank you for considering us as your child’s adoptive parents. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
We were introduced through mutual friends and spent a year dating long distance, taking turns traveling to see each other. After Jayson proposed, he moved to Washington, and that’s where our happy story begins. We love the life we have built together in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy traveling, watching movies, and taking our dog, Chloe, for walks. Getting outdoors is important to us; we love walking on beach-side boardwalks, attending sporting events, and trying new restaurants. We equally love spending time together at home.
After two years of fertility treatments, we were unable to get pregnant. Through prayer we found God’s path leading us to adoption. We are excited to welcome a child into our home and teach them how to swim, ride a bike, and raise them with strong family values.
Jayson always makes people laugh with his witty jokes and outgoing personality. He is extremely hard working and dedicated to his family and career. Jayson is a die-hard sports fan, who loves all things Disney, studying movies, playing games, and attending trivia nights- where he has single-handedly won all 4 rounds in one night. He is an amazing cook and makes the majority of our meals at home. On our first date, Jayson told me his goal is to be the most loving husband and father; he already deserves the best husband award. I know he will be an amazing dad. He is excited to teach our child how to cook and to dance around with our child standing on his feet.
Brandi is a wonderful, kind-hearted, and sweet woman who’s outgoing, joyful personality makes her someone that everybody wants to be around. She is a passionate high school teacher, shaping the minds of young people every day. She loves big cities, beaches, and bookstores, and makes the best chicken parmesan. Brandi loves holidays, especially seeing fireworks on the 4th of July, watching Hocus Pocus and carving pumpkins for Halloween, and loves just about everything at Christmas. Brandi is the most loving wife, and she will absolutely be a wonderful, gentle, nurturing mom. She is excited to start Christmas traditions with our child, like baking cookies for and writing letters to Santa.
We live in a two-story duplex with three bedrooms. Our home has a fenced in yard with plenty of room for our puppy and future child to play. Our home is tucked away in a safe, woodsy area, that is close to community parks, good schools, a swimming pool, and a public library. Our neighbors are members of our church, which makes for fun evenings of campfires and playing cornhole.
Our families are both so very excited for our adoption! Jayson’s family lives in Idaho and is looking forward to us bringing our child with us on our quarterly road trips to visit. Brandi’s mom lives nearby and is beyond excited to become a first-time grandma. We love spending time with our families, and often FaceTime weekly to keep in touch.
We also have a strong community of friends who feel like family and love having them over for game nights and holidays. Our friends and family are incredibly supportive of our decision to adopt and look forward to playing a large role in our child’s life.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and to provide them with a stable, loving home where their education will be a top priority. We promise that our marriage will be a strong example to them as they grow up. We promise to give your child a life full of love, laughter, and opportunity. We are happy to stay in touch with you through letters, pictures, and visits at your comfort level. We would love to hear from you!

|More About Our Family|
|Our Contact With You|
We are open to sending you letters and photos so you can watch your child grow and thrive within our family. If you are comfortable, we are also open to visits. Your child will always know their adoption story and how much you love them.
Jayson was raised by a family with strong Christian values and grew up attending Sunday school at a Nazarene church in Idaho. Brandi was the opposite, not raised in the church, but instead discovered her love for Jesus during college. We currently attend a small, close-knit church and have a strong support system in our church family. We know that God has the right child waiting for us through adoption, and we can't wait to see what He has in store for our family.
|Our Musical Interest|
Brandi grew up with a passion for singing! She has been in many talent shows, was always involved in choir in junior high and high school, and as an adult, she has been a member of the worship team at our church. She also loves singing in the car and at home any chance she gets.
Jayson loves feel-good electronic music, ABBA, and anything from the 80s. Upbeat music reflects his positive, outgoing personality.
|About Our Home|

Our next door neighbors are a wonderful family of five whom we have known for years because they attend our church.
