Stephanie and Jeremiah

Hello and Thank You!

We are Stephanie and Jeremiah and Josiah. We are from a small town in Pennsylvania surrounded by cornfields, woods, family and friends. Thank you for taking your time to get to know us. We can only pray that by looking at our profile you will get the courage and strength to make your decision. Your child will grow up with a big brother “JoJo” with many cousins and family nearby.

Getting to know us, by Stephanie

We are high school sweethearts! We met through a mutual friend. I knew I was going to marry Jeremiah the rst time we met. We married young and blessed with 2 sons. We love spending time as a family, but when its just the two of us we like to grab dinner, relax and watch a movie. We live very simple lives, but our lives are filled with so much love, joy and laughter. We’ve always known in our hearts adoption was something we wanted to do. Over the years we discussed the beauty of everything about it. Recently our interest in adoption grew stronger. Through many nights of prayer, we came to the decision that now is the time. We are excited and can’t wait for this to become our reality!A little about Stephanie

I am the youngest of 3 girls. I am shy, until you get to know me. I’m always up for an adventure! I’m very independent. One summer my cousin said she was taking her boys on a weekend camping trip and wondered if we wanted to go, NO men just the moms and their kids. So that weekend we were packed and ready to go. It turned out to be one of my favorite times with my boys. It showed that I could go out of my comfort zone and have a good time! I enjoy taking care of people, I love laughing and making others laugh! One of my favorite traditions is putting a picture ornament on our Christmas tree every year of our kids. Each year when we decorate the tree we can see how much they’ve grown.

Jeremiah loves Stephanie because: Stephanie was shy at first but now she is the complete opposite. She is my best friend. She always puts others first. She always makes sure that everyone is taken care of. My life would not be complete without her in it.
A little about Jeremiah

I am the younger of two sons. I am thankful that I have a job that I enjoy and that allows me to spend time with my family and travel to our Florida home twice a year. My job is working maintenance on the Pennsylvania turnpike. I love watching and supporting Josiah at whatever sport he chooses. I am blessed with wonderful parents who love my family. I love taking care of our home, keeping it maintained and taking care of our vehicles. I like to stop in and see my parents on Sunday mornings and have coffee with them.

Stephanie loves Jeremiah because: He is my best friend, he has the biggest heart of anyone I know. He is always willing to lend a hand, and I love that he has a close relationship with his parents. I admire that he is a hard worker and provider for our family so that we can enjoy life together doing the things we love.
Meet our kids:

Josiah can’t wait to be a big brother! He is 12 years old and is in the 6th grade. He loves helping others; he has his dad’s heart and his mom’s goofy humor! He can’t wait to teach your child how to play sports. He loves hanging out with his buddies, playing backyard games, swimming and fishing. Its impossible to write about our family without mentioning our oldest son Jaden, who passed away. Jaden was very funny, athletic and had a huge heart. In our home we will always honor people who have brought meaning and joy to our lives, even if they aren’t with us everyday. Our son Jaden will always be a part of our lives in ways that are impossible to measure. You, as your child’s birthmother, might not be a part of our daily lives, but you too will be honored and remembered every day.

Our Faith: 

Faith is a central part of our home and family. We attend church regularly. It is important for us to raise our family following the principles of the Bible and the Christian faith. Our church is a major support system and an extension of our family.

Meet Ivy:

Ivy is a German Shorthair Pointer that just turned 1. She is a hunting dog but would rather be a cuddle and lap dog. She loves playing with her dog toys and waking Josiah up every morning to get him ready for school. She loved taking her first trip to Florida. She really loved running and playing on the dog beach.Our neck of the woods:

We live 1 hour from Pittsburgh and 7 miles from our small town. So, we live in a quiet, peaceful area! Woods and corn fields surround us, and better yet, we are surrounded by family and friends. We love hosting birthday parties in our big garage, and having campfires at our fire pit! Josiah is always having his buddies over to play in our big yard! There is a pond near us that Josiah and his buddies meet at to hangout and fish. The local Kindergarten-12th grade school is small, there are about 50 kids in Josiah’s class. We love it because the kids get more one on one time with their teachers.

Our Florida home:

We also enjoy a second home on the gulf coast where we enjoy swimming in our pool, relaxing, and going to the beach a few times a year. Most of the times when we go, Stephanie’s mother, sister, brother in law and their kids all go along.The People We Love

Stephanie’s Family: Stephanie’s mom is known by the grandkids as Nana. She lives 6 miles from us. Nana is an awesome grandmother who is always there for her children and grandchildren. She loves spending time with family and spoiling everyone. Stephanie has a sister and brother in law who have 6 kids.Because we live so close, we spend countless hours with each other, talk on the phone each day, and visit with them often. We often take family road trips and adventures. We are a very close family. Before my father passed away he was one of our biggest supporters in wanting to see us adopt.

Jeremiah’s Family: Jeremiah’s parents are known by the grandkids as pap and grammy. They live about 5 miles from us. They love to spend time with their grandkids and enjoy going to all of their events. His older brother is married and they have 1 child. Most years we get together and vacation to the beach.

Our Tribe: We have friends that we consider family, we are always getting together and hanging out. Amusement park trips, dinners, campfires, movies, playing in the snow, laying by the pool, camping and hiking. We love spending time with them. This is our community, our family, and our tribe.
