Hello! We are Jake & Michele. We are a Christian family that enjoys all aspects of the great outdoors and are excited to meet you! We look forward to growing our family through adoption, and thank you for taking the time to read about us!
We’ve been together for nine years and have been happily married for six. We live in gorgeous Central Washington with our daughters Mikayla and Shay and our dog Macy. Both of our girls are excited to have a little brother. We are a family that loves to stay active. Some of our favorite things to do are camping, traveling, hiking and spending time with extended family.
We love spending time together, from having dance parties in our pj’s to playing any sport. God and family are our top priorities. We spend time with our extended family as much as we can. We love serving God and are grateful for the love he gives us in return. We take pride in raising our children in the Christian faith and look forward to including our son in all our family fun.
About Jake by Michele
Jake is one hilarious guy! He makes us laugh all the time. He is a great leader and always works with me as a partner. You can tell Jake loves being a dad. One of his favorite things to do is coach Mikayla’s softball team. Jake always shows his love and is a great protector and provider.
He has his Master’s in Organizational Leadership and hopes to one day work as a Professor after he retires from his current job as a Police Sergeant. Jake loves to hunt, hike, play sports, and grill. He is excited to have a son and to teach him what it means to be a man of God. He is also excited to have a new hunting partner!
About Michele by Jake
Michele finished her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing not long after we met and she is truly amazing at it. She genuinely cares for other people and that simply shines in her work. Her faith helps her to be kind to everyone she meets and always sees the best in others.
Michele is my best friend. She takes great pride in all she does including being an amazing mother and teacher for our children. Some of her favorite things to do are decorating the house for holidays, play sports and making crafts with our kids. Michele is excited to make mud pies with our son.
Mikayla is 14 years old and busy with band, Youth Group, and softball. The first time adoption was mentioned in our family, Mikayla’s first response was, “I’ve always wanted to know what it’s like to have a brother!” She is a great big sister and is already a wonderful example for her sister. Shay is 3 years old, loves school, singing, and dancing. We’re excited to have a child close to Shay’s age and we just know she is going to have the best time making memories with her brother.
We are lucky to have a large, close-knit family that we get to spend holidays with. Our entire family has been extremely supportive of our choice to adopt and are overwhelmed with joy that there will be a new addition to the family!
Our Home in Washington
We live in beautiful Washington in a four-bedroom house. Our spacious house is filled with natural light from our many windows that also give us a view of the valley. Often times you can find us playing in our fenced backyard. We live near mountains, forests, lakes, and rivers so there is always something to do and we love seeing it all!
As a family, we promise to always show your child unconditional love and support. Your child will be encouraged to be who they want to be, while preparing to be a successful adult. Education is important to us and your child will be given the opportunity to receive a college education. As a Christian family, your child will know the love of God and the importance of following in His footsteps.
We promise to always paint you in a positive light, as we will be forever grateful for the gift you have provided us. We are excited to share your child’s growth with you through photos, letters, and visits if that is what you desire. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us, we are excited to build our family through adoption!

More About Our Family
Our Favorite Family Vacation
Anywhere we can park our trailer. As a family we love camping! We love to be outdoors in nature exploring. We also love the water. A couple of our favorite water toys are an inflatable boat, paddle board, and kayak. At the end of each camping night, we love sitting around the campfire talking and making s'mores.
We are a Christian family. We believe that Jesus is the son of God who gives and takes our sins away. As parents, we teach the word of God at any given moment. Mikayla attends Youth Group on Wednesday nights and loves it. Before dinner we take turns praying together as a family, giving thanks to him. We love our church family and enjoy worship every Sunday with them.
Something people might not know about me
Michele: I can't hang out at home wearing jeans. When I know I am going to be home for a long time I change into comfortable pants.
Jake: I am in the Washington National Guard Museum for getting a battlefield promotion while serving in Iraq. I was one of the first 6 to receive this honor since World War II.
About Our Home
We live in a four-bedroom house that has a fenced backyard for our children and dog to play in. We have an open concept floor plan. Michele can easily watch Jake and the girls make lego towers in the living room while she cooks dinner in the kitchen. The front room has turned into a play room and we wouldn't want it any other way. Often times you can find Mikayla playing house with her little sister in the tent that looks like a house in the front room! Our home is set up on a little hill, with big bay windows which gives us a gorgeous view of the valley we live in. We love having dinner outside on our porch looking at the view as well.
Thank you for taking the time to review our website and for getting to know a little bit more about us! We can't wait to love your child and create memories with them. We look forward to meeting you and experiencing this beautiful journey of adoption with you.
