From the first moment I met Jon, it was so clear what an incredible person he is that I asked him out - a first for me. I have been so grateful for that decision every day since.

When we dated, Jon wanted each outing to be special for me. On our second date, Jon told me to meet him at the opera building. When I arrived, he had a slice of my favorite cake and led me around the building to an old tree with a branch in the shape of a chair. Playing in the background were the Disney songs that I mentioned I still enjoy.

I always knew that Jon would be a great father and he’s exceeded my expectations. Jon and Eli are the best of friends. Eli loves running to show every new thing he finds or learns to Jon. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing those two playing together on the floor or reading a book together before bed. I know Jon cherishes these moments and looks forward to sharing them with this next child too.

Aside from being a great father, Jon is an amazing son, brother, and friend. He’ll go above and beyond just to bring a smile to someone’s face. Most importantly, he’s the most amazing life partner and I feel blessed every day to have Jon in my life.

Our son, Eli, is a kind, sweet, playful, and loving two-year-old. Kids and adults alike love to spend time with him. He loves animals, cars, building blocks, books, and helping out in our vegetable garden.

We start our mornings by video chatting with Eli’s cousins in Israel over breakfast. Eli is enrolled in a private daycare. He loves going so much that he rushes us out the door each morning by taking our hands and leading us to the car. We love this school, since each child receives a great deal of attention and the teachers focus on learning through fun activities. In the afternoons, we like to go together to see Eli’s grandparents or play sports outside. Before going to sleep Eli loves to practice his drum set and read a lot of books.

Eli will be the best big brother. He already has a strong foundation for an incredible character and is a great role model that a baby brother or sister can look up to.
