Who is Jessica?

About Jessica (from Alicia): Jessica is a very special person to me. She is my soul mate and I love her more than I could have ever imagined loving someone. Jessica is such a warm, open, caring, person. Her heart is pure gold and she is such a good friend to many. Jessica is funny and is someone that I very much enjoy spending my life with.

Jessica will be a tremendous parent. One trait that will make her such a great mom is her desire to foster a setting within which our child will be able to reach his or her potential. She is also very loving and warm and I can envision her spending a ton of time talking to, snuggling with, and reading to our child.

Jessica’s friend Kelley described Jessica:

“Jessica has been one of my best friends for the last 15 years and more importantly one of my favorite people in the world.¬† I have a number of good friends that I am still friends with because of our history.¬† I am friends with Jessica because she is a wonderful person; someone who inspires me to be a better person and a better parent.”

Jessica’s best friend Drea said the following about her:

“Throughout numerous activities, all through her life (e.g., volleyball, her social work practice, her journey to obtain both of her masters degrees, a farming apprenticeship, her journey in learning about her own fertility, and through watching her relationships with her family, especially her nieces grow, as well as her love for her pets), she exemplifies devotion, loyalty, diligence, pursuit of knowledge, commitment, teamwork, and most importantly love.”
