Meet Jenna & Brad P.

Adoptive family

Dear Birth Parents,

We are honored that you are taking the time to get to know more about our family. We know how overwhelming this time must be for you, but please know that we are here to walk through this journey together.

We believe we’re meant to grow our family through adoption because of all the blessings we have been given throughout our lives and want to share that hope and love with a birthparent and their child.  We promise to be open about their story, love unconditionally, exemplify gratitude, lead faithfully, and encourage them to pursue their dreams no matter how big or small.

We both grew up in the same small town in Ohio and have known each other since elementary school. We started dating at age 16 & became high school sweethearts! Fast forward 19 years, and we now live in Cincinnati, have been happily married for 10 years, have two beautiful girls, Reese and Zoe, and a small dog, Riley. Our relationship and faith grows stronger every day. We love our date nights to local restaurants, weekend getaways, going to concerts, running together, spending time with friends, and cuddling up on the couch.

As a family, we are very active. We hike, bike, explore Cincinnati’s culture and arts, attend many sporting events, go to church weekly, and make many memories through traditions and travel. We take every opportunity to travel with our girls. Some of our favorite destinations include boating at Lake Cumberland, driving to unique beach towns like Seaside, Florida, and taking long weekend trips to visit friends and family.

We are blessed to be surrounded by a loving and supportive family who live two short hours north of us. Reese and Zoe are thrilled to visit their grandparents monthly as they get the opportunity to play with their 15 cousins, enjoy swimming at their grandparent’s pool, and eating grandma’s homemade treats.

In our eyes, family is love. When Brad was in college, he volunteered to mentor a 7-year-old boy through the Big Brother program. That not-so-little boy is now 22, and he is surely considered a member of our family. We spend time together cheering the girls on at their soccer games, doing projects around the house, or heading over to skyline chili for dinner (a family favorite). Reese and Zoe adore him and it’s rewarding to see our love for him come full circle as he becomes a role model for our girls.

Meet Brad {through Jenna’s eyes} Brad’s passion and commitment is evident in every aspect of his life. He works hard to support his family, truly cares about building relationships, and is always grateful. He’s also outgoing, funny, athletic, loving, and the best husband and dad. When he isn’t spending time with us, Brad will most likely be shooting hoops, running, doing home projects, or watching sports.

Meet Jenna {through Brad’s eyes} Jenna is the rock of the family, a supermom, an extremely talented interior designer and a caring wife who brings selfless love to everyone around her. She sets an amazing example for our girls by always being kind, showing respect, and working hard. When she isn’t spending time with family, Jenna enjoys drawing houses, exercising, spending time with friends, and dreaming about the next big home project.

Our Girls Reese is a fun-loving, sweet, and up-for-anything kind of 6-year-old. At home, you can find her singing and dancing, drawing pictures and making crafts for friends and family, writing in her journal, reading books, or playing with her dolls. She also loves to ride her bike, play soccer, swim, and socialize with neighbor friends. Zoe is an energetic, expressive, and entertaining 3-year-old. She’s the queen of singing and dance parties, reading books, making up her own stories, and painting. She also loves swimming, riding her bike, and playing hide and seek with her sister. Both girls are ready to be big sisters!

Our Home Our 5-bedroom home is nestled in a woods just east of downtown Cincinnati, with a neighborhood full of children, top-ranked schools, biking/hiking trails, and parks. We live on a tree-lined, cul-de-sac drive, and our backyard opens up to a large valley where we have picnics, campouts, and soccer games. We can’t express how much we would love to share this with your little one. We have room in our home, and even more in our hearts.

Thank you so much for considering us. We are so excited and ready to begin this adventure with you!

Much Love,
Jenna, Brad, and Family
