Our names are Jeff and Leighan. We have been married 8 years and have a 5-year-old son, Cameron. We often think about all the events that had to take place to bring all of us together in this moment. We never anticipated we would be making an adoption plan, and would imagine you didn't either. Here we are, our lives about to cross paths, to be changed forever, all for the shared love of one human. We are beyond grateful for the difficult and selfless decision you are making, and for giving us the chance to be parents again.
We met in college in 2002, became fast friends and started dating shortly after. We were married in 2008. Jeff works for a large IT consulting firm as a Senior Manager and Leighan was a Neonatal ICU nurse for 9 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Our son Cameron is an active, empathetic, creative and very talkative little boy. He can't wait to be a big brother and is always telling us all the ways he plans to help out once the baby comes (including sharing his toys!).
Our Life Together
As a family, we love traveling and going on little adventures near home. We live in an urban area and enjoy riding our bikes to the market, library, museums, and local restaurants/coffee shops. Before having Cameron, we enjoyed traveling to Australia, Costa Rica, England, Argentina and Brazil. Thankfully Cameron is a great traveler and loves exploring new places with us! We believe that the best way to teach our children about different cultures and our global community is to experience new places and learn firsthand. Vacation is a very important time for us to reconnect as a family, and realign our priorities when life gets busy, so traveling continues to be a big part of our life.
Jeff is a hardworking and determined individual. He is typically described as quiet, but is one of the funniest people you'll meet once you get to know him. Jeff enjoys doing projects around the house and going on runs and bike rides with Cameron. They always seem to end up at a local restaurant having snacks after! Jeff runs marathons, enjoys playing board games, watching movies, hockey, college football, and baseball.
Leighan is a stay-at-home mom and loves her time spent raising our child and taking care of our home. We have 2 Siamese cats who follow her everywhere, and she also fosters kittens from the local animal shelter. Leighan enjoys cooking/baking, caring for her garden, photography, fitness and triathlons. She recently started to teach fitness classes to share her passion with others. She is a huge sports fan, with her favorite sports being football and hockey.
We hope these few paragraphs have given you a chance to learn about us and our life. We are extremely excited about this new adventure in our lives and welcoming the next member of our family. We thank you for taking the time to look through our profile.
