Bio and Adoption

We will soon be featured on an adoption blog and we were asked to provide a short bio and why we want to adopt. What I... this is Jared by the way... wrote was not what was needed but I thought it was a fun bio and adoption thing so here it is.

“Being nerdy is not fun!” That is a phrase you will never hear from Jared. He claims that blinking lights are interesting, not because they are blinking but because of all the fascinating different ways light can be produced. Incandescents, florescent, LED; they are all entertaining to his geeky personality. This fascination with the small and trivial makes him a great engineer.  

One of Devin’s favorite smells is chlorine bleach. She has mastered the art of using the whitening substance without getting it on her clothes. This talent has taken years to develop and several shirts in the process. She feels that learning this skill is a major accomplishment as she can wear anything while cleaning.

Together Jared and Devin have the ability to shine light on all blemishes in the bathroom and have them removed.  

Between the two of them they only have 14 siblings. This is much too small of a family. Considering that you only increase your family by 1 with a biological child. We set out to find a better way to grow our family. Adoption seems to be the most efficient means to boost the caliber of our family. With adoption you do not just include a child to the family; there is also an opportunity to add the birth parents as well as their parents and siblings. This ability to multiply, instead of add, was a major contributor to our decision. We love adoption and hope to share the experience with as many people as possible. Please feel free to visit our blog (jndpayne.blogspot.com) or shoot us an e-mail (jndpayne@gmail.com). We love getting to know people and would be more than happy to answer any and all questions you have for us! Thanks so much for taking the time to read about us.

Jared I think you should write more posts. While yes I love Devin and all that she says (I choose to ignore what I do not like)
You always have a way of making me chuckle when you write.
