I grew up in a small town in Illinois. I have two brothers. I am an aunt to three nephews and one niece. Family has always been very important to me, and regardless of where I have been in life keeping up with them is a top priority. I love taking my dog for walks and staying active, but I also love to spend time at home with my family playing board games. My favorite foods include wings, tacos, and chocolate. I graduated high school in 2006 and went on to the University of Wisconsin graduating with a bachelor degree in business.

I grew up in a close-knit community in southwest Wisconsin. I have one brother and one sister. I am now an uncle to three nephews and one niece. I enjoy hunting, golfing, and bowling. I also enjoy watching football, especially the Green Bay Packers. Some of my favorite foods include pizza, wings, and tacos. On the weekends I enjoy grilling out with family and sitting around a fire. I graduated high school in 2006 and went on to the University of Wisconsin to study civil engineering. I currently work as a project manager overseeing road construction and design projects.

Dear Birthmother

Thank you for taking the time to get to know the two of us. We recognize the choice you are making is one of the most difficult a woman can face in her lifetime. Entrusting your child to be raised by someone else requires incredible bravery, strength, honesty and, most of all, love for your child. We feel extremely honored to be considered as adoptive parents. We want to assure you that we promise to respect you and whatever level of openness and contact that you want to have with your child. We promise to provide your child with a safe and happy home and give them as many opportunities in life as possible. We promise to teach them life skills that will make them the best human they can possibly be. We believe that success if not only measured by financial status but being a compassionate, patient, strong, and empathetic person is just as important. We believe that parts of life should be fun and we are looking forward to taking many adventures and learning as many life skills along the way as possible. We have always dreamed of being parents and having a child to raise in our loving home and we are so grateful to be considered. Please always know we will unconditionally love and cherish your child and we will make sure that he/she will be proud to be adopted.

Reason to Adopt

Our journey toward adoption has been a long and emotional ride. We have been trying to become parents since we got married in December 2013. We have been able to get pregnant naturally 3 times but none of the pregnancies were viable. Adoption has always been in the back of our minds and after our third loss and several failed fertility treatments we decided that adoption was going to be the next route we took. We have so much love to give and we are fully invested in the adoption process.
