Jason & Lilli

We have been together for over 14 years.  We met and fell in love right after college and were married in 2012.  Our daughter June joined our family through an open adoption in 2018.  Watching June grow from a tiny baby into a sweet and curious toddler has been the joy of our lives.

We live in Montclair, New Jersey, a welcoming, diverse town with excellent schools, large parks, and friendly neighbors.  We love to spend time as a family taking walks in our neighborhood, reading, dancing around the house, planting in our garden, and hiking together.  We also love to cook and have our friends and family over for delicious meals.  

Adoption has been an amazing experience for us.  Lilli’s brother, Robert, joined her family through adoption. Our experience adopting June has been terrific.  We feel very fortunate to have a strong open relationship with her birth family.  We look forward to welcoming another child into our lives through adoption.

Our Life

We live in a college town in New Jersey in a warm home that we have filled with books and music.  We have two sweet cats who cuddle with us as we read bedtime stories. On weekends, we love to spend time with our family and friends making elaborate meals and laughing together. We also enjoy exploring nature on bike rides and hikes whenever we can.   

We are fortunate to have jobs that we love and that are flexible to our family’s needs. Jason’s Aunt Barbara also is a vital part of our family. She watches June and takes her to library story times and activities during the day. We always eat dinner as a family and do June’s bedtime routine together.


Our Family

We are lucky to have an amazing, supportive family who cannot wait for us to adopt again. Lilli’s brother and Jason’s brother, aunts, uncles and cousins all live in the New York City area. We get together with them all the time for BBQs, holidays, and just to catch up.  Jason’s cousins have young children and we love watching June and her cousins grow up together. Lilli’s parents live in Michigan and Jason’s parents and sister live in South Carolina. We talk on the phone and visit them often.
