Meet Our Families

Making a difference throughout New Jersey.

As the needs of our community change, we respond by doing what we can to make a difference.

Meet Our Families

Listed below are a few of our approved families who are hoping to adopt. Prospective birthparents are encouraged to explore and consider the benefits of Open Adoption. Open Adoption allows you the opportunity to maintain a connection and relationship with your child and the adoptive family. With open adoption, you are able to choose and meet the adoptive family and the level of openness that you might want to have with them. Your counselor will discuss the benefits of open adoption with you and provide support through the process of choosing and/or meeting the adoptive family.

Please note that not all of our families may be listed here. If you would like more information on any of these or other families, please call our toll-free hotline, available 24 hours, 7 days a week at 1-888-325-6621.

Steve and Melissa

Adoptive Families - Steve and Melissa Hello! We are Steve and Melissa and we’ve been happily married since September 2007. We admire your strength and courage for considering adoption. If chosen to parent your child, we promise to love him/her unconditionally and teach him/her the importance of family and faith. We each have 3 siblings who we’re extremely close with, all who have children of their own. Our nieces and nephews are already excited to have another cousin soon! We enjoy spending lots of time with family, joining in on activities and outings with the kids. In our spare time, we like to be creative together – Melissa with crafting and Steve with wood-working and clay sculpting. We live in a cozy home in a rural area between Philadelphia and the shore, so there are always fun things around to do. In the summer our family and friends come over often to BBQ and swim. Holidays are spent with family and we look forward to creating our own holiday traditions when we become a family of 3. We hope to meet you soon and learn more about the wishes you have for your child!

We can promise a life for your child filled with love, happiness, family, and friends. A good education, a stable home and sense of belonging will be the building blocks for your child to become a strong confident individual. As we both grew up with large close extended families, our child will enjoy lots of family gatherings too. With long term friends, we spend time playing games, laughing, eating, watching TV and going to the movies. We hope you will take the time to get to know us better. We anxiously await the missing member of our little family!

Placed Families

Scott and Tina

LSMNJ Adoption
PLACED - We are Scott and Tina. While we know your decision is a difficult one, our hope is that after reading our story, you might feel that our paths have crossed at this time for a reason. Married since 2003, we have a strong, loving relationship that began as a friendship in 1994. In 2011, we were blessed to have been chosen as the adoptive parents of Evan; our first child. Evan has brought incredible meaning into our lives and a joy that is a gift from God. At two years old, our sincerest hope is to have Evan experience the companionship and love of a little brother or sister. We live in a modest but wonderful home and are fortunate to have stable careers and loving family relationships. We are active and enjoy the outdoors. Family dinners, holiday gatherings and summer vacations have given us wonderful memories that we hope to share with a new addition to our family. Thank you for considering us for this great honor. Our hope is for an open, healthy relationship with this child and you, the birthparents, for a lifetime to come.

We live in a ranch style home in a family friendly neighborhood, with an in-ground swimming pool and a nice size yard for children and dogs to run and play. We have no children but have two Jack Russell terriers, Boomer and Bella, who are sweet and playful dogs with lots of energy and personality. We enjoy going to the beach, and traveling. We also love to entertain! Family and friends all gather at our house for get-togethers and holidays. There is always plenty of good food and company! Our dream is to adopt a child who we can give a nurturing, caring home as they grow supported by a loving family.

Beth and Frank

LSMNJ Adoption Program LSMNJ Adoption
PLACED - Hi – we are Beth and Frank . We have two adopted sons Josiah (5) and Julian (3) who are the light of our life. Spending time with our boys is our biggest priority. We love taking them camping, playing together, having “fun night” each week and just recently got back from a cruise. We also spend a lot of time on Beth’s parents farm where we go fishing, go for four-wheeler rides, ride horses and hang out with Beth’s 4 sisters and the boys' 10 cousins. We believe in teaching our children through example and try to model kindness, grace, and love towards each other and the people we meet. Having the opportunity to have another child to nurture and love, and to have a brother or sister for our boys to love and be loved by, is something we are so looking forward too.

Bob and Jen

LSMNJ Adoption
PLACED - Hi, we are Bob and Jen. These are our amazing son’s Austin and Dylan. We have been blessed in our life with two wonderful children and the desire to add to our family continues to grow more each day. Choosing us to raise your child is the biggest gift anyone could give our family and in return we can promise you the best life for your child. It will be filled with love, stability, and dedication to providing the best in every way for this baby. Adoption was such a natural choice for us and I know it must be so hard for you. Reading this paragraph and looking at our picture only gives you a small portion of the life we have, the fun things we like to do, and the life we can offer. Hopefully we can meet and start a wonderful adoption journey together! Jen, Bob, Austin, & Dylan

Justin and Linda

LSMNJ Adoption
PLACED - Hi! We are Justin and Linda. Welcome to our life! We have lots of parenting experience since our children have come to us both biologically and by adoption. We believe that we are being called to grow our family through adoption yet again! We never run out of fun and exciting things to do together and we can’t wait to share many more wonderful adventures with the newest little member of our family!

Amy and Lowell

PLACED - Hi, we are Amy and Lowell! We met in 1999 and have been married since 2005. We live in a charming ranch style home in a wonderful neighborhood with our dog Daisy. Amy has a huge heart and is always there for others. Lowell is loving, adventurous, and enthusiastic. Family and friends are very important to us. Our parents are not far away and they are eager to be active grandparents in our child’s life. We always knew that parenting was for us! We are looking forward to sharing our love and many blessings with a child. We know that if we are blessed to adopt we will love and nurture him/her to be the individual they were born to be. To become parents would make our dreams come true. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and we wish you the best in your decision.

Terry, Paul and David

LSMNJ Adoption
PLACED - Hi, we are Terry, Paul and two year old David, who can’t wait to be a big brother. We live in a very spacious 5 bedroom home just blocks from the schools and park. Spending time together anywhere is our favorite thing to do. David particularly enjoys being outside playing with his cousins or the children in our neighborhood. Paul and I love being parents and are dedicated to raising a happy and healthy family. We will always be very calm and patient with all of our children. David was born very prematurely, weighing just two and a half pounds. After watching him struggle to survive in intensive care for several months, everyday little things don’t bother us. We never sweat the small stuff in life. Instead, we look at David’s smiling face and can’t help but smile back at his latest creation. Thank you for considering us. We wish you all the best.

Liz and Jason

LSMNJ Adoption
PLACED - Hi, we’re Liz and Jason. We have a three-year-old son, Ryan, and we’re excited about adding another child to our family. As a family, we really value the time we spend together. Ryan likes to play cars with us, we read to him every night, and sometimes he even helps Liz make dinner in the kitchen. On the weekends, we often go to the pool, beach, or playground. Your baby will have a close extended family – grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins are all excited about a new addition. If you’d like, we’d be happy to stay in contact so that your child will be able to build his or her own relationship with you.
