We can’t wait to love your child! Giving us the gift of parenthood would be unimaginable and priceless in our eyes. Your child will be the center of our world and family. Not only will they be given every opportunity possible, but we will be there supporting them at every step. Our unconditional love will allow them to thrive in life. We promote love, creativity, and adventure in our home.
We met in high school and were the best of friends until college. It’s corny to say that you should marry your best friend–but we actually did. We’ve been involved in each other’s lives since we were 15 and wouldn’t change a thing.
Having a child has been our priority for the last 7 years. A child is the missing piece to our family and the most important thing in our lives. Before getting married, we talked about children and having a family. Our common interests in food, sports, and music made us excited to share our love with a child. We often talk about the day when our family will be complete.
We want your child to experience life to the fullest. This includes being closely involved with cousins and extended family. They too have loved this child long before meeting them. Our 8 nieces and nephews can’t wait to add another cousin to the bunch. They look forward to building memories with him or her.
Our love of travel and adventure will be passed on to your child. They will be involved in outdoor activities and explorations. You can often find us “up north” at the cabin. Here, we make memories that include beach days, bonfires, family BBQs, and breathless Michigan sunsets. Our two dogs; Leroy and Charlie, love to explore with us as well. They love to swim and chase tennis balls regardless of the weather. Family hikes (aka, walks at our local metro park) are amongst some of their favorite activities. We will share our love of cooking and sports from an early point in their lives. Our favorite day of the week is Sunday when we enjoy hosting “football Sunday.” Our family relaxes while watching sports, eating delicious food, and enjoying each others’ company. Cooking is something we do almost nightly. We love to try new recipes and new restaurants whenever possible. Food from every culture is included in our weekly menus. Oftentimes, we end our week with Pizza Fridays from local pizza joints!
We can’t imagine what you are feeling at this time, but we respect this decision more than words can express. Your story of strength and selflessness will be shared throughout your child’s life. They will be given the opportunity to ask questions. Your story is just as important in their lives as ours. We can’t express our thanks enough and hope it gives you give you comfort that your child will be loved extensively by both us and our entire family. We will give them a stable, supportive life. We can’t wait to become a family.
