Life is full of planned and unplanned things. While we may not be able to relate to all of the things you are feeling and experiencing while creating an adoption plan for your child, we wish you all the best as you navigate this chapter in your life, whatever your decision ends up being. If you feel a connection with our family and entrust us to be part of your experience with the gift of raising your baby, she will be loved and cared for in so many ways. 

We both focus on enjoying life right now and look forward to new experiences. Life for your baby in our home would be full of fun times like family game nights, baking yummy treats, or taking family trips.  Holidays are filled with extended family. We have a dozen or so relatives who live near us in the Midwest and many more spread throughout the U.S and Canada. 

The biggest complaint our kids have these days is boredom. So we think that is pretty good! Typical days consist of school, work, swim classes or activities, chores and projects around the house, and hopeful early bedtimes. Vacations usually involve mini golf and tons of kids activities. We break up our normal routine by going out of town to go glamp in a cabin, visit an amusement park, or whatever else may be on the radar.  

Katie is a stay at home parent so she will be home with the baby until she is ready for a preschool program. Our two boys attend a local private school that is a small student body and has a great homey feel to it. 

You may like to know why we are adopting and there are a few reasons, but the most important is because we want to adopt. A family story is unique. No two families are alike. Big families, small, blended, biological, the friends who become your family, there are so many ways for families to come together. So for us, this makes sense. 

Katie grew up knowing her mom was adopted, so adoption has always been something on her mind. After having two babies, we kept talking about taking the path of adoption if we were to have more. We knew pretty quickly after our second that we wanted a third child. We also know we want a daughter. Words cannot begin to fairly portray just how much we love our boys. We also cannot articulate the desire to have a daughter. Not only for Katie as a mom, but for Pete who will be a pile of goo with a little girl, and for our two boys.  Our oldest son is so caring and sweet-natured. We have no doubt he will just adore a little sister. While our youngest son is still in his toddler years, we know he too will be a great big brother because he’s learning every day from our oldest. 

We want to bring diversity into our household and one way to do that is by having more kids. Having brothers and sisters is something that helps people grow up with different perspectives and also teaches them how to get along with a variety of people. 

The beauty of families is the unique ways people come together. We are open to whatever kind of relationship you’d like to have with us and your child. Katie’s mom did not have open ties with her biological family until she was well into her forties and found her birth family. The fact that she chose to find them in her adult life leads us to believe people like to know where they come from and to learn things about their backgrounds. We’re open to creating a connection that fits all of us knowing that it will continually evolve.
