Hello, we are Katy and Jason, welcome to our adoption page!
We are both professional performers and met performing in a children’s touring show 15 years ago. After living in NYC and dating for 10 years, we finally took the plunge and got married 5 years ago. Jason is an actor who has been in many TV, film, theater, and commercial work. His exuberance for life, sense of humor, and easy-going nature are the qualities one would notice right away! Jason always makes people comfortable and is always putting others’ needs ahead of his own. Katy is a dancer, turned fitness trainer who has performed in film, TV, and traveled across the globe with varying artists. Katy is a high-energy/hard-working woman with an equally fun sense of humor.
We are best friends and really balance each other out. After getting married, we decided to move out of NYC to the Jersey Shore to open a boutique fitness studio together. Working very much as a team in our professional lives, we feel ready to grow our family though adoption and share our lives with a child!
We LOVE our pets and consider them family! Our time at home is always spent having fun with our “jungle friends” (as we lovingly call them). We have a 3 year old rescue dog named Ginger, a 15 year old cockatiel named Ernie, and a 20 year old Russian Tortoise named Sweet Pea. We like to play with all of the pets and make them feel special… yes, even our Russian tortoise
We are both extremely close with our families! Katy’s parents live 15 minutes away and we get to see them all the time. Katy’s brother and sister-in-law live in Pennsylvania and come to visit often with their dog…especially in the summer. The pool party fun is endless!
Jason grew up in Ohio, where all of his immediate and extended family currently lives. We make it a tradition to go back for Christmas each year as the holidays are particularly special in Jason’s family. With deep-rooted traditions, there are always large family gatherings that are not to be missed throughout the year. It is important to us that a new baby would be able to learn these fun traditions and meet their amazing cousins. Both our families are thrilled with the idea of adoption!
Since our daily life is so active with the fitness business, we love exploring new restaurants, going to the movies, and attending local fairs/markets in our free time. We should also mention that we like to go “all out” for the holidays! We love to decorate our house and bring a festive spirit to our neighborhood. Our favorite holiday, by far, is Halloween! We cannot wait to share this holiday with a child by taking them to pumpkin patches, trick-or-treating, corn mazes, and more!
We also feel that vacations are a necessity and the perfect way to unwind and enjoy time with each other. Each year, we try to make it a point to travel and explore a new destination. We look forward to continuing this tradition and sharing the experience with a new addition to the family.
Our house has plenty of room to grow plus a full finished basement that is perfect for playing or jamming on the drums in Jason’s music space!
We hope to keep the lines of communication open with a you. It would be wonderful to be able to share updates via photos, pictures, emails, and/or annual visits at the Family Options Picnic. We also know that this is a very personal decision and will respect your wishes regarding communication.
It is important to us that a child also feels connected with his/her cultural or ethnic background. Should we adopt outside our race, we would take it upon ourselves to learn more about their culture through reading, films, and research. We would love to take a child to visit their “home” country on a family vacation or even learn another language together!
