Hello! We are Jeff and Shannon. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to introduce our family to you. We admire your strength and courage in your journey and are humbled to be considered as the potential adoptive parents to your child.
Along with our two-year-old daughter, Lilah, Jeff also has two older children, Moira (21) and Will (19). We are looking forward to expanding our family with another child, and Lilah can’t wait to be a big sister!
A little about us: We live in a diverse neighborhood in South Jersey, about 15 minutes from Philadelphia. We have two golden retrievers, Jackson and Amos. Our circle of friends includes four families with adopted children.
Jeff loves sports; especially the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles and good health is an important part of his life. He is a regular at the gym and also enjoys golf, camping, and bike rides with Lilah.
On the weekends you can find Shannon, Jeff, and Lilah hanging out at the neighborhood pool or taking a bicycle ride to get ice cream after dinner. Shannon also enjoys yoga, horseback riding, gardening, and projects around the house.
We are both passionate about our jobs. Jeff works as a homebuilder and is the “chief problem solver”, always coming up with a solution to problems that seem unsolvable. Shannon works as the creative director for a non-profit in Camden that serves hundreds of children and teens each year.
We feel blessed with the opportunity to expand our family again through open adoption. It’s important for us that our child grows up with a full sense of his/her history, including you. We look forward to finding a fit that works best for the child, you, and us which will allow for a developing relationship together over the years. We are committed to ensuring that our child grows up feeling loved, valued and protected.
Thank you for considering our family and allowing us to introduce ourselves.
