Our names are Joshua and Jessica McCarthy and we are very excited to meet you. We first want to start by telling you how honored we are that you have taken the time to look through our book and consider us for your child.
We first met back in 2008 at Best Buy where we both worked in retail and the rest is history! We started dating on January 16th, 2008, became engaged in April 2009 and finally married on November 13th, 2010 at Meriwether Golf Course in Hillsboro, Oregon. We purchased our first home on August 12th, 2016 here in Hillsboro as well. We love the Hillsboro area because we are so close to just about everything; the mountains, the beach, and we are even walking distance to the Hillsboro Saturday/Tuesday market that is held in the spring and fall time. We are also just 5 minutes away from Jessica’s parents’ house and 15 minutes away from Josh’s parents’ house. This makes it quite convenient for those holiday get togethers, summer barbecues, and any other type of celebration!
We love to go on vacations; from Hawaii, London, Jamaica, or even just staying in town to have a game night with friends. We enjoy playing board games, roasting hot dogs in the summer evenings at our parents’ or friends’ house, or even just having a nice quite evening in with a good book or movie; just the 2 of us!
Jessica was adopted when she was a baby herself and when we got together, she was very open about her being adopted and how much she wanted to adopt a child of her own someday. We have adopted 2 dogs and 1 cat from our local humane society and now we are eager to continue to build our family. We are both very excited to start this new chapter in our lives! We are truly excited to make the same memories we both had growing up as children! We have always wanted children but knew we wanted to wait until we both had settled down and had purchased our home first. We both come from fairly large families where we both vacationed often, had family reunions, celebrated birthdays and graduations, and often came together just because we loved spending time with family. We want to continue these same traditions and create new ones.
Josh works in the IT field and Jessica works as a financial officer for a large dental office. We are both very happy that Josh is able to work from home, which in result, means he will be able to be a stay at home dad! This has been one of our goals that we have been working so hard to achieve. We both grew up with having our moms be able to stay at home with us. We both have parents that are such big influences in our lives, great role models, and our biggest fans. We have learned so much and continue to learn from them each and every day. We look forward to raising our child the same way.
We want to thank you again for taking the time to read a little bit about us and we wish you nothing but happiness in the future!
