Jason & Lori from PA
Some heartfelt thanks for taking the time to learn about our story! We hope that someday we can meet you face to face to learn about your story. So, to start, here is a glimpse into our life!
While Lori was attending college, she went to a local festival with a friend. Lori’s friend introduced her to her cousin, Jason. It was love at first sight! (It took Jason a little longer).
Once Lori finished her college degree in Animal Sciences Business Management, we got married. We later moved to Jason’s family Dairy Farm to live and work there.
We have always had a desire to have children. After several discouraging and challenging years of infertility, adoption was placed on our hearts through a church program. We are very excited to hear little foots steps, and young voices call us Mom and Dad!

About Lori by Jason
Lori has a bright and bubbly personality. She will talk to anyone who will talk back. On some occasions, she has been caught thanking a gas pump!
Lori makes friends easily by making people feel comfortable around her. Lori enjoys singing and dancing around our home. She will many times bust out in song and come dancing across a room. She makes up her own song, no music needed!
Lori works hard around the farm and our home. She takes care of all the animals on the farm and makes sure they are all healthy. She does not stop until they are feeling well.
Lori loves her family. She is always excited to see her nieces and nephews. Often when leaving time comes, a few tears are shed.
She is a person who keeps busy. During spring, she can be found in her garden, summer in her kitchen canning, fall preparing for the holidays and winter crocheting for friends and family.
A general quality of Lori’s is that when she does something, she puts her whole heart into it. I know that she will put all the love she has into being a mother and caring for our family!
