Hi! We have been happily in love over 7 years and ready to become first-time parents through open adoption. The more we’ve learned through this process, the more we get excited about a connection with you throughout your child’s life. You would always hold a special place in our hearts. As a couple we have a stable relationship, steady jobs we enjoy, a home near the beach, and a serious LOVE for anything Disney! It would be wonderful to get to know you and find out what you want for your child’s future.
We met on a dating app and it didn’t take long to meet in person. We’ve been married over 4 years and have built our relationship on faith and friendship. Together we value God, loved ones, and the USA. Putting family first is important to us as well.
Things we enjoy:
• Traveling (especially to Disney!)
• Mini golfing
• Taking our dog to the beach
• Going to the aquarium
• Finding new places to explore
• Church dinners and meeting new people
• Playing cards
• Building Lego sets
• Watching movies
This is Tina...
According to Jordan: My wife comes from an Italian family and has a passionate, loving, protective, good heart. Tina loves her job in social work for the challenges and connections she makes with people she helps. She has always had a compassionate nature that draws her to people in need. Tina brings so much joy to my life and my family. I can’t wait to see the joy she’ll have as a mother!
• All-things-Disney (ever since childhood!)
• Trying new experiences
According to Tina: My husband is the most loving, caring person I’ve met. Jordan is very family-oriented and a hard worker who will do anything to provide for his family. He is always there for me and ready to encourage me after a long day. He is creative, patient, kind, a good listener, and great with our nieces and nephews. Jordan will be the best father!
• Swimming at the beach or our club pool
• Watching classic films
• Digital design projects
• Building large Lego collector sets
Our Home in South Carolina
We live in a growing area of South Carolina where there is so much to do! The neighborhood is wonderful and has a nice clubhouse with a pool, a playground, basketball and tennis courts, and a gym. They’re often hosting events or food trucks to bring the neighbors together too. When we’re not at the beach or planning our next Disney trip, we like finding local things to do, like the aquarium, Hollywood Museum, or Broadway at the Beach.
Every room of our home has some Disney décor and we’re excited to get a nursery ready when we know if we’ll be adopting a boy or girl. We have a great front and back yard and we enjoy talking about projects we’d love to do with the space (maybe a pool one day!). This will be a great place to raise our family!
We both come from big families! While most of our family lives up north, Tina’s brother’s family is just 6 minutes from us. Tina’s parents also have a house here that they visit every month. Since we love traveling, we like taking trips to visit our relatives out of state. Our families stay close between visits talking regularly by phone or with Facebook Portal. We have loving people in our lives who are all excited about our plans to adopt! One of our close family friends also adopted a child many years ago and has been a great support to us as we prepare to grow our own family this way.
From Our Hearts...
We believe open adoption has great possibilities for our child to know their full story and for you to know you are forever cherished as a part of that story. Our hope is for you to have peace about the life you choose for your child. If you choose us as adoptive parents, please know we welcome a connection with you throughout your child’s life and would love to hear what you have in mind for contact after the adoption.
As parents we promise to:
• Raise him or her to feel loved, supported, and that they can always talk to us about anything. We will always do what is best for this child!
• Be honest about our family’s adoption story from the start.
• Create a well-balanced home life where Christian values and the Golden Rule are at the foundation of how we parent.
• Provide a good education through Catholic school and college.
• Model love, respect, hard work, dedication, and loyalty.
Thoughtfully, Jordan & Tina

More About Our Family
Why We're Hoping to Adopt
We’ve wanted to become parents and believe raising a child together will be one of the greatest things we’ll ever do as a couple. Going through infertility just made our desire to grow our family even stronger. We love thinking of the ways our life will change with a child and look forward to planning family vacations, celebrating firsts, working through challenges together, and beyond. We’re ready to be there for a child in every way we can.
Fun Facts About Us
Tina has been to Disney World over 26 times and to Disneyland twice. She has a personal goal to visit every Disney World park around the world by the time she retires. Tina cannot wait to share the magic of Disney with our future child!
Jordan collects coffee mugs (he loves coffee!) and t-shirts from different categories of pop culture.
We rescued our “Morkie” (Maltese-Yorkie) when he was 2 years old and he’s been the best dog! Polo likes playing and going for walks or car rides, and he’s good with kids.
Family Traditions We Love
• Going to the resort or the beach with our families
• Mini-trips to explore our state and search for hidden gems
• Going to Oglebay in West Virginia for different activities including light shows, exploring the farm, and horseback riding (It’s an old tradition of Tina's that we look forward to each year!)
• Plenty of quality time with family on holidays or weekends just having long talks and lots of laughs
Thank you for considering our family for your child! We would be honored to welcome your child and embrace a connection with you through open adoption. It would be a dream come true to share as parents our love for Disney and traveling, beach life, and family time. We hope to get to know you and the life you picture for your baby. If you're comfortable, we welcome the chance to share future contact and updates as your child grows up. Contact Lifetime to connect with us!
