Spicers’ of the Midwest Open Adoption Quest

Thanks in advance for taking a few minutes to get to know Erin & Jeff. I truly believe that WE (YOU  + MotherStucker + Erin + Jeff) can make BIG things happen in 2016. Speaking of BIG, MotherStucker’s own sisters (Brooke, adopted in 2003 & Aly, adopted in 2005) are growing up fast & continue to be the BIGGEST blessings to our family everyday. Together let’s help create a blessing in 2016 for the whole Spicer Family!

erinbellajeff“Our relationship started with a positive match from We started emailing and talking on the phone daily, since we lived in different states. We knew that after six months of dating that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We were married in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in April of 2010. Erin moved to Indianapolis after our wedding. We truly are each other’s best friend and partners in life. We have been happily married for nearly five years. We have an amazing marriage that is centered on trust, open communication, and our faith in God. We are very passionate about attending church and sharing our faith with our child. We have a sweet, loving dog, named Bella, who brings such joy, energy, and excitement into our lives. We are excited to complete our little family through open adoption.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS: Our home is in the exciting city of Indianapolis, Indiana in a small-gated community. There are many young families with children and friendly pets in our community. There are numerous activities for our child to enjoy, like great parks, interactive museums, and sporting venues in Indianapolis. There is a great children’s museum and zoo that we look forward to taking our child to experience all the fun. We live close to many great hospitals, excellent schools, restaurants, and our church. In the Midwest we experience all four seasons during the year. We love the fall season and look forward to spending time with our child jumping in piles of leaves, going on a hayride, visiting the pumpkin patch, and walking through a corn maze. We really enjoy spending time together, walking Bella in the evenings, having a movie night with popcorn at home, and going snow tubing with family in the winter. We enjoy having family cookouts, playing corn hole, and watching the fireworks during the summer. We love to travel and are looking forward to many adventurous vacations with our child. We can’t wait for the day we take our child to Kings Island in Cincinnati. This will be a fun family day to the amusement park to enjoy the rides, face painting, animal balloons, ice cream, and cotton candy.


OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS: Our child will be surrounded by unconditional love and support from our family and friends. We are very close to our family and they will play a huge role in his or her life. Erin’s parents, “Grams and Granddad”, are very excited to spend weekends with our child. “Grams” is very excited about reading bedtime stories and “Granddad” is ready to teach our child how to fish. Our child will have two uncles, ready to play, and our niece is very excited about having a cousin! Christmas is an important time for us to share together with our families. We enjoy going to the Christmas tree farm to search for the perfect live tree to bring home, and then decorate while drinking hot chocolate. We await the day we get to help our child put the star on the very top of the tree! Everyone is so thrilled about us becoming parents through open adoption.

ERIN BY JEFF: Erin is an amazing, caring, and loving woman. Every day I am thankful and blessed that God brought her into my life. As I watch her daily with our dog, Bella, and spending time with our niece, I know that she will make a great mother. Erin loves cooking and baking healthy meals for family and friends. She always puts other people’s needs before her own. She will love our child with her whole heart and our child will be lucky to have Erin as a mom. Erin has always had a love for animals. Dogs have always been a huge part of her life. Erin owns a small dog walking business. She takes care of clients’ pets during the day. Having her own business allows her to have a flexible schedule.

JEFF BY ERIN: I am so  thankful that God brought Jeff into my life. He is an amazing partner, best friend, and man who is loving, supportive, and patient. Jeff is a fun, playful uncle who is a big kid at heart. He loves to plays games, watch cartoons, and read stories with our niece, who loves laughing and spending time with Jeff. He is excited to be able to attend our child’s activities and give his support by cheering our little one on. He will make a wonderful father to our child. Jeff has been working in the Information Technology field for ten years. He enjoys learning how various systems work and how to repair the systems. He works as an IT Analyst for a small business close to home and has a flexible schedule.”

Photo-55My daughters are eaters. Always have been. In fact, when Mini-Me (pictured to the left)  finished these photos today, she devoured the “Sweet Potato Apple Carrot & Cinnamon” Gerber’s 3rd Foods® Lil Bits™ Recipes. Clearly she isn’t a baby — but as an experienced Mom — I know great baby food.  Great baby food leads to great eating habits for life.  My oldest daughter (now 13 years old & 5 ‘ 10″ tall) packs her own school lunch every single school day complete with a healthy snack to enjoy before volleyball practice. Before she could pack her own lunches & snacks, she enjoyed baby food MotherStucker picked for her. She also learned to chew to ease her transition to table food with a little MOM encouragement 😉 That’s exactly why MotherStucker encourages YOU to participate in the #GerberChewU Instant Win Promotion at for YOUR child.  It’s a WIN – WIN!

1. Apply YOUR little ones to Gerber Chew University

image1-3MotherStucker appreciates that Gerber tested 30,000 spoonfuls of Lil Bits™ Recipes to develop perfectly sized bits to help babies master chewing. 80 taste tests were held with 700+ samples to ensure that Lil Bits™ Recipes had a baby-approved taste. Experts analyzed over 20 hours of video footage & spent 150 hours of analysis & coding on chewing/mashing. Thankfully Gerber is filling a gap in early childhood nutrition with Lil Bits™ Recipes – A new & exciting category changing innovation!

  • As older babies develop side to side movement of their tongue they can begin to move small, soft pieces of food to their jawline for mashing, the early skills of chewing.
  • Children who have not been exposed to “lumpy food” that require mashing and chewing before 10 months of age have experienced difficulties transitioning to more advanced foods.
  • Introducing pureed foods with advanced textures at the Crawler milestone is highly recommended for children to explore and feel multiple textures within the mouth without having to manage numerous separate food components.

MotherStucker knows experience is the best teacher. My Mini-Me & Teenage daughter are growing into amazing young ladies thanks to good choices & great nutrition & I’m excited to continue this motherhood journey with YOU!
