Our names are Jessica and Joshua Pennington.
I am currently 36 years old.
My partner is currently 35 years old.
We have 2 sons, ages 8 and 11 who are very active! We really enjoy watching them participate in taekwondo and baseball. Both boys are over halfway to being black belts! They also enjoy school and excel in reading.
Jessica works full-time for Paulding Schools as a Third grade teacher and has a flexible work schedule with holidays and summers off
Josh works full-time for Discount Tire as a Manager and has a flexible work schedule. He has every Sunday off so we are able to pack in lots of family time each weekend!
As a family, we enjoy attending baseball games, traveling to places near and far, spending time at our lake, visiting our favorite local coffee shop, playing board games, taking bike rides, and going for ice cream often!
We live in the State of Ohio.
Our home is a single family home with a large yard to play in.
We live in a Country/Rural neighborhood close to multiple parks, a large swimming pool with water park/splash pad, and a few recreational sports fields. We live within an hour of multiple cities packed with fun things to do!
We are within an hour to two of large medical centers, but do have a pediatric hospital within half hour. Our rural town also has a small hospital.
We have two dogs-- a Boston terrier puppy and a hound mix.
We were called to adopt after Jessica had experience with a foster child in her classroom. We knew that we could not have biological children of our own, and wanted to love more young people! We are licensed foster parents who are hoping to provide a forever family to a child in need.
Every family faces challenges, changes, and struggles. But amongst the tough moments, are tons of great memories, smiles, fun, and learning experiences. It's our goal to make every challenge a learning experience and see the positive in all those little moments!
