Our Story

Hello, we are Raegan & Theodore “Ted”.  We met online through e-Harmony, and after our first date spent every weekend together.  We have been together for 10 years; dating for 3 years before getting engaged and now married for almost 7 years.  When we met we were in our mid 30’s and knew what we wanted from a partner & relationship.  We support each other’s independence and enjoy spending our free time together doing the thing we have in common.  Our relationship was built on respect, communication and a mutual support of each other’s passions and desires. We always knew we wanted to have a child but experienced some complications along the way, and we both agreed very quickly that adoption was the way to accomplish our dream of growing our family.

Family Life

The relationships we have with our family and friends and spending quality time with them is extremely important to us.  We both come from very close knit families that value and enjoy each other’s company.  Our families have many traditions which revolve around getting together for Holiday’s, birthdays, gatherings at our siblings houses, and spending time vacationing together snow skiing, at the beach or at Raegan’s parents’ Lake House in Pennsylvania.    

We have many family traditions from Easter egg hunts to Halloween parties, but one of our favorite times of year is Christmas when we get to spend Christmas Eve with Raegan’s 91 year old grandmother and immediate family and then spend Christmas day with Ted’s family.   

As a family we value stability, honesty, integrity, dedication and a loving respectful way of life.  We are Christians, who plan on attending a local church to integrate our newly expanded family into the community.  Our family includes 2 dogs, Sandy who is an 11 year old Beagle & Max who is a 10 year old Maltese.   Our dogs are very friendly and our nieces and nephews enjoy getting them to do tricks for treats.

Lifestyle

We live in a close-knit rural community in Western NJ.  Our home is a newly remodeled 2 story single family house, with an open floor plan.  It sits on 2 acres of land that back up to a state preserve creating a wonderfully peaceful and private place to live.   

We love to be active, go on adventures and have new experiences.  Together we enjoy snow skiing, boating, kayaking, hiking with the dogs, and traveling to see new things.  Outside of our joint interests Ted also enjoys hunting, fishing and playing guitar where Raegan enjoys cooking, baking, and photography.    

On a typical weeknight you’ll find us in the kitchen talking about our days while Raegan makes dinner.  On the weekends we usually on the go.  As much as we love to explore, we also love to be at home together.  On rainy days, we enjoy working on the house, doing crafts and small projects or just sitting with our dogs watching a movie.

Adoption

We are very excited to expand our family through adoption and have the amazing opportunity to become parents. 

We really want to keep an open line of communication with you but will respect your desired level of contact.  Our desire is to do whatever is best for this child and their future and would hope to keep contact throughout their life by exchanging letters/emails, photos, and have annual visits.    

We think it’s important that the child knows as much about where they came from as possible and feel that the best way to learn that is from is their birth family.  As long as the interaction is healthy for the child we will do everything possible to keep the relationship open.

We can’t possibly imagine what you are going through right now and realize that we can never fully understand the decision you are currently facing.  This isn’t about us and our desire to be loving parents, but about you and your tremendous bravery.   

We truly admire your strength and courage to consider such a selfless act for your child.
