Posted by Lifetime Adoption on May 19, 2018

derek-jenniferDerek and Jennifer just finished creating this cute video to share about themselves and their hopes of adopting a baby. They live in the beautiful state of Washington, where Derek has a stable career as a pilot, and Jennifer's a Director of Public Affairs. Derek and Jennifer's home is located on three acres in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State, among many of God's great gifts.

They enjoy doing everything together, from hiking with their dogs, cooking delicious meals, enjoying a quiet cup of coffee in the morning, and playing board games with family. Derek and Jennifer love the outdoors! In the summer months, they go hiking and fix up the yard and in the winter, they ski every chance that they can get.

Derek and Jennifer will provide your child with a stable home, a childhood full of wonder, an excellent education, and endless love. They're open to sharing letters, pictures, and visits if you are comfortable!
