Adoptive family

Dear Birth Family,

Thank you for taking the time to read our story and consider us as adoptive parents for your baby. We are truly honored. Bringing a new baby into our home is something we look forward to with all our hearts.

We met in 1998 in New York City at a gathering of mutual friends. Our relationship quickly grew, and after a few years of dating we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We welcomed our son, Aidan, through adoption, in 2012. It was one of the happiest moments of our lives. Now six years old, he can’t wait to have a brother or sister. Aidan has great excitement and enthusiasm for life and will make a wonderful big brother.

As a family we love spending time together. In the winter, we enjoy holiday celebrations. Whether visiting family in New York City and watching preparations for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade or simply sharing hot chocolate as we check out the holiday lights, it’s a special time of the year.

During the spring, summer, and fall, we love taking walks, attending concerts, and picnicking around town with family and friends. We enjoy visiting all the museums, like the Indianapolis Children’s Museum and Contemporary Arts Center. We have a love of animals, and are members of the Cincinnati Zoo. We can’t wait to create new memories and share all these traditions with your child.

Loving family
A Disney vacation

We believe that every day is an adventure and so we live our lives to the fullest. As long as we are together, we enjoy it all — from everyday things like running errands to more exciting things like traveling.

About Jenna, by Seth Jenna is the most caring and loyal person I know. She is a loving and devoted wife and an absolutely fantastic mom! Aidan and she have a very special relationship. You will often find them baking together, usually cookies or cupcakes. They love snuggling up and reading a good book or watching a movie during family night.

Jenna is a creative person. Following college, she worked for international fashion companies and designers, and later, after earning a Master’s Degree, she worked for museums and curators across the country.

About Seth, by Jenna Seth is the most loving person I’ve ever met. He has always been my rock. I love watching him interact with our family and friends, and especially with our son Aidan. Whether coaching Aidan’s basketball team or taking him to get ice cream at Graeter’s, you can see the joy and love they share.

In addition to having a great sense of humor, Seth is one of the smartest people I know. He even took up law school to start a second career while working full-time. In his leisure time, Seth enjoys traveling, movies, sporting events, curling, and anything related to technology.

About Aidan Aidan lights up every room he enters. Whether it’s a joke, an interesting question, or showing us the latest cool dance moves, Aidan is always a lot of fun.

Aidan enjoys playing sports with his school, swimming, and taking acting classes at the Cincinnati Children’s Theatre. It is wonderful to see the world through his eyes. He is so excited about having a sibling.

Ready to adopt
We believe that every day is an adventure and so we live our lives to the fullest.

Our Home We live in a quiet, friendly, tree-laced neighborhood in Cincinnati. It has a small-town feel and everyone looks out for each other. We love the diversity of living in the city, within walking distance of top-notch schools, parks, restaurants, shops, cultural activities, and close to zoos and museums.

On Adoption We have a special feeling about birthparents. Jen’s mother, Bonnie, found herself pregnant and in a difficult situation as a young army nurse and decided to place her baby for adoption. Jen learned about her mother’s story after her half-brother, Andrew, searched and located our family almost 20 years ago. With this in mind, we have a unique understanding about how difficult your decision must be, and we admire you for trying to give your baby the best home and life possible.

With sincere thanks,
Jenna and Seth
