Dear Birthparent(s),

Thank you for taking the time to read our online profile.  There are no words that can describe how thankful we are that you chose life for your child in this world in which there are many other options available to you.  We cannot imagine what you have gone through in order to make one of the most important decisions of your life.  

Our names are Jared and Ashlie.  We have been married for just over nine years, but have been together for fourteen years.  While we were dating, we both knew that we were meant to be parents.  After discovering that we were infertile, our desire to be parents did not waiver.  We thank you for considering us in giving the gift of your child.

Jared works for the school district as a mailroom technician.  Ashlie is a Registered Nurse and she is an assistant director of nursing at a local facility.  Ashlie is in the last semester of her Master’s program to obtain her nurse practitioner.  Both of us are highly involved in our church.  Jared plays guitar and leads song service on the worship team while Ashlie is the leader of Sunday school for children ages 3-11.  When we are not at church, we enjoy watching and attending sporting events such as the Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies.  Ashlie enjoys running as a past time and participating in runs around the area.

In 2009, we built a new house on 5 acres of land.  It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  From our front porch we can view the Rocky Mountains and enjoy the quiet being in the county can provide.  The land was necessary so our four dogs could be active.  We have a lemon beagle named Bailey, a black lab named Kali, a yellow lab named Cheerio, and a chocolate lab named Chauncey.  The land will also be useful for building a playground for our children.

In March of 2013 we adopted our first son Caleb Michael.  No words can describe the joy he has brought to our lives. Caleb was born with Down syndrome but one would never know as he is perfect in every way.  He was the first grandchild on both sides of the family and is loved by all.  Caleb’s smile and laugh will light up the entire room and warm your heart.  In May of 2015 we were blessed with our second son Landon James. Landon was also born with Down syndrome like his brother.  His personality is as strong as he is. He may be small, but he is mighty.  As a family, we frequent sporting events as well as the Denver Zoo, Denver Aquarium, and Denver Museum of Natural Art as well as many other events in the area.  Spending time together is a priority for us.  We feel that it is the perfect time to expand our family of four and welcome another child into our home and hearts.    

We feel as though instilling our children with honesty, forgiveness, and God’s word are essential to their upbringing.  Our children will be raised in church and we desire to instill Christian values.  Both of us plan to spend as much time as possible with our children and show them all of our love.  We promise that if we are selected by you, we will always give all that we have to your child.  Thank you for blessing us with this opportunity.

God Bless,

Jared and Ashlie
