Chantall & Jerane

Hello, we are Jerane and Chantall! Thank you for looking over our profile. We are excited to share our story with you. When we met 24 years ago, we were drawn to each other's passion and desire for the best out of life. Our first date, which took place at Coney Island, was so much fun and the start of getting to know each other. Early in our relationship, we established a good friendship and began to understand what we would like in a potential partner. We were young and grew apart for a few years but then found each other again, this time with the intention of seeing where our relationship would go. 

On May 30, 2011, we got married, and very shortly after that, we were blessed with the birth of our son, Caleb. We thoroughly enjoy being married and having the opportunity to be parents. Caleb has brought so much joy into our lives and we are inspired to continue to strive towards our passions and goals as a family. We are looking forward to expanding our family through adoption and we feel very grateful to have an opportunity to do so.

We are so thankful that you have taken the time to consider our family as a possible placement for your child. We can't imagine the weight of your decision, but do know that it will be an immense privilege to be a part of your journey. As parents, we are excited to welcome another child into our home and to raise your child as our own. 

If chosen as adoptive parents, we promise to provide a safe and loving home and to create opportunities for growth and success. We will support your child in the same way that we have supported our biological son. We plan on telling your child their adoption story and how much they are loved, considered, and taken care of. With a semi-open adoption plan, we hope to expand our family. We wish you all the best as you consider the best option for your child.

Our Family

We believe that our family is united and strong. We also believe that our home is a place where warmth resides through the demonstration of love.

We believe that our family is united and strong. We also believe that our home is a place where warmth resides through the demonstration of love. We seek to provide a safe and secure home with a loving and supportive foundation. Family time is highly valued in our household and we have family dinners, meetings, game nights and vacations together.

We emphasize the importance of education, participate in school functions and are members of the school's PTA. We are also actively involved in church activities. Our church family embraces children and has been a great support to us as a family. This includes providing opportunities for fellowship, such as gatherings for celebrations and various child-friendly events. 

We are also very much supported by our parents. They have taken our son on trips, out to the movies, and are always willing to engage in a fun and creative venture. They truly love their grandson and are looking forward to becoming grandparents again as we grow our family through adoption.

Our Home

We moved into our home seven years ago. One of the features that attracted us to our home was the big backyard and the surrounding family-friendly community. It's the kind of neighborhood where you'll see children playing outside, family celebrations, and the ice cream truck circling throughout the streets. We can often be found riding our bikes or ...

We moved into our home seven years ago. One of the features that attracted us to our home was the big backyard and the surrounding family-friendly community. It's the kind of neighborhood where you'll see children playing outside, family celebrations, and the ice cream truck circling throughout the streets. We can often be found riding our bikes or taking walks on a sunny warm day. 

Our community offers easy access to a track and a few state parks. Although we live in a suburban community, we can commute to the city easily. In fact, one of our son's favorite activities is traveling to the city. We are in a great school district that values education, is inclusive, and offers many opportunities that support student growth and achievement. 

We are within a 30-minute drive to our parents' homes so our son is able to visit his grandparents often. Our charming home consists of four bedrooms, one of which has been prepared for the child that we hope to adopt.

Our greatest blessing is our son, Caleb. He is an active, considerate, and happy 8-year-old boy. Watching him grow has been an amazing experience and we are so happy to have the opportunity to be his parents. 

Caleb is very sociable and makes friends easily. It warmed our hearts to learn from a classmate’s mother that her son described Caleb as a good friend to others. Caleb has also created meaningful relationships with the children from our church. He has an infectious smile and his loud laugh is contagious! 

Caleb is a good student and enjoys school. Outside of the classroom, he enjoys many activities. He has taken karate lessons for the past two years and is a green belt. He also participates in swim classes and is in a reading club. Caleb would be a great big brother and he so hopes to have a sibling. We can't wait to see him and this sibling interact and establish a life long relationship.

I met Jerane at a bus stop over twenty years ago, and although we exchanged telephone numbers, I would have never expected to have met my husband on that day.

I met Jerane at a bus stop over twenty years ago, and although we exchanged telephone numbers, I would have never expected to have met my husband on that day. We established a firm foundation as friends. In doing so, I was able to see how empathetic, loving, and patient he is. These traits, along with being ambitious, authentic and considerate, were attributes that drew me to cultivate a deeper relationship with him.

As a husband, Jerane is determined, compassionate, and works towards setting and meeting goals for our family and himself. He is very creative and a talented computer graphic artist. He shares his creativity and artistic abilities with the children that he works with as a teacher's assistant. He also works with our son on everything, from learning coding to assisting him with his homework. 

As a father, he has exceeded my expectations. Jerane is very present and has always been there in every capacity for Caleb. Our son truly loves Jerane and he and Caleb have a great bond; they often go out for a 'daddy son' day. At first, when my son said that he and Jerane were going to go out for a 'daddy son' day, I didn't know what he was talking about. When I asked Jerane, he explained that Caleb came up with the idea. Whether it is a trip to the diner, a movie, or a bike ride around the neighborhood, I love seeing them interact. The investment that Jerane continually pours into our family does not go unnoticed and makes him a wonderful father and husband.

About Chantall

When I first met Chantall, I was just 19-years-old, had recently transferred to a new college, and started a new job. I was trying to figure out in what direction I wanted to go with my future. Once I began working and going to school, I felt as though I was caught in a loop, concentrating on work and my studies with no true end goal. When I met ...

When I first met Chantall, I was just 19-years-old, had recently transferred to a new college, and started a new job. I was trying to figure out in what direction I wanted to go with my future. Once I began working and going to school, I felt as though I was caught in a loop, concentrating on work and my studies with no true end goal. When I met Chantall, I found a person that helped both change and challenge my views on what my life could be. 

While talking with her and being in her company, I discovered she was also working and going to school (like myself) but was using her musical abilities to help shape her future. I had a background in art and design, but never seriously considered my talents as a means to guide my future. Meeting and pursuing a relationship with Chantall inspired me to start my valued career and business. 

After we got married and had our son Caleb, I saw Chantall effortlessly take on the role of mother. She has always been a guiding force in developing our son’s talents and confidence.   While I introduced him to music at an early age, it was Chantall that noticed his ability to sing and encouraged him to pursue music. 

I have known and loved Chantall for over 25 years. From the time we began dating, to when we married and began sharing a life together, I have always appreciated what she gave to me. It is difficult to picture what a life without her would look like, but I am so glad I do not have to.
