We are Jared and Bridgett, two high school sweethearts who met through mutual
friends. Bridgett is a lifelong educator who loves legos and books, and Michael is an HR
recruiter who loves to game and cook. We are huge college football fans who love to travel as
well as spend time with our families and friends. In many ways, we grew up together and have
been through many of life’s challenges, but we’ve also experienced so much joy. We truly
consider each other best friends as well as soul mates.
We decided to start a family early in our marriage, but quickly found that it would
be more challenging than we imagined. After years of fertility treatments and appointments, we
decided it was not meant to be our journey. Both of us had always felt the pull to adoption, so we
began to open our hearts to a different path toward building our family. We are so excited to be
going through the adoption process!
