Meet Jimi & Leigh J.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparents,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are Jimi and Leigh. We have a son named Wyatt, who can’t wait to be a big brother! Making an adoption plan is a caring and courageous act, and it would be our honor to share that journey with you. Every child should know where they came from, and you will always be a part of that story! We will provide your child with unconditional love and a place they can always call home. We would love to meet you and get to know you better!

We have been happily married since 2005, but have been together for 20 years! Along with our son Wyatt, we have two dogs, Starla and Parker. Jimi works for American Electric Power, and Leigh is an elementary school teacher. Our faith has always been a big part of our lives.

As a family, we love to take a beach vacation with extended family each summer, a tradition we both grew up with. In the summer we also love going on family bike rides, attending community concerts, going to the zoo and King’s Island, or spending time at our family’s pool. Our greatest joy in life is spending time together.

About Jimi Jimi is laid back and easy going. He’s always been the kind of Dad who will say yes when his child asks him to play. He has enjoyed working at AEP for many years, where he has developed numerous lifelong family friendships. In his free time, he enjoys visiting Kings Island with his family, going fishing, and cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

About Leigh Leigh puts family first, and is happy that most of our extended family live close by. She loves the way being a mother allows her to express her caring and nurturing side. Leigh’s love of children inspired her to earn her Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, and she feels blessed to have this as her career. In her spare time, Leigh enjoys reading, playing with our two dogs, being outdoors and getting together with family.

About Wyatt Wyatt is very excited to have a younger sibling. He has said he is looking forward to teaching them everything he knows. He loves going to the zoo, riding his bike, playing soccer, swimming, and playing video games.

Our Home We are fortunate to live in a small community near London, Ohio, with family within walking distance. We enjoy having family cookouts, celebrating the holidays together, and just spending time together. We also live near a lake, where we enjoy spending the day at the beach or one of the nearby parks.

Ready to adopt
Can’t wait to meet you!

We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to consider us in your adoption plan. As your child’s birthparent, you will have a very special place in our lives. We want you to know that your child will be welcomed with open arms and will always be a part of our family.

With love,
Jimi and Leigh
