Jarret and Brian
Hello, we are Jarret and Brian and we live in Chicago, IL and thank you for considering us. We have been together for 18 years and we are eager to expand our family.
Early in our relationship we recognized that we both shared a strong work ethic and were aligned in making sure we could support growing our life together. While we pursued our professional and academic careers, we created a close group of friends who are like family to us. We have very supportive families that live in Indiana and Minnesota. Brian is 42 years old and a professor at Northwestern University. Jarret, 44, owns a fundraising consulting company. While we love our careers, we also take time to enjoy life and our friends. We have a very strong bond and are more than spouses. We are best friends. We understand each other implicitly and provide unconditional love and support to each other.
We love cooking (and eating) with our friends and family. We host dinner parties at least once a month and everyone walks away stuffed. Good home cooking is really special to us as it reminds us to celebrate and share stories about our lives with each other. Our passion for travel has taken us around the world to places like Hong Kong, Hawaii, and South Africa. For our honeymoon, we spent three weeks wonderful weeks in Thailand exploring the sights and sounds of remote islands.
Our home is a welcoming place filled with family and friends who care for and laugh with one another. We have a 4-bedroom home in a neighborhood that is full of other families and children and is perfect for playing in our backyard or playing with others up and down the block. Our home is around the corner from the local elementary school and a short walk to the wonderful Lake Michigan beaches and parks. We’re close to many of the great things Chicago has to offer – including an incredible children’s museum and we’re looking forward to exploring and seeing each of these places again through the eyes of a child.
We have always wanted children and know that this is the right time in our lives to grow our family. We would love to be parents and be given the opportunity to love and nurture a child together from the beginning of their life. Adoption is a wonderful option for us. We have done quite a lot of research, and we realize how incredibly special and brave you at for considering us.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us. We are so excited to have the opportunity to welcome your child into our new home, with unconditional love; two dads with open arms, excited to start a new chapter. We hope to meet you soon.
