To Someone Special,

We are so grateful for the time you have taken to learn about our family and to see if you feel a connection with us. We can only try to imagine how difficult this process is for you. We simply feel blessed that you are in this world, making this decision, and giving someone the gift of a child (the most precious and selfless gift of all). You have choices on this journey and you have undertaken the most challenging of all roads; it just so happens to be the most courageous and kind. Thank you - for your bravery, your wisdom, and for your consideration of our family.

Who We Are

It all began when we met on a dating website "before it was cool". Our first date was a little awkward, and we get a good laugh over the first handful of dates and misadventures. We bonded quickly, and soon we were running on trails together, cheering on our favorite teams at sporting events, and spending time with family and friends. The proposal took place when we were vacationing with family friends in New Mexico. We walked around the small little ski town and at midnight on New Years, Mike proposed in a Christmas lighted gazebo. A couple months later we were married at a small, simple outdoor ceremony surrounded by family and a few close friends.

Adoption Diary

Family Focused

A couple of years ago, we sat down to talk about priorities and what we would like to focus on as a family. In an effort to strive and maintain these values, we chose a handful of words that would help us.

We have a faith-centered family that holds love, gratefulness, truth and service in high esteem. Our hope is to raise and teach a little one how to live life with love, gratefulness, truth and service. We believe every person is born with his/her unique personality and God-given talents so we are excited to see a child grow and learn and become who God has made them to be.

A Typical Year

Every year we visit out of town family multiple times, travel, celebrate birthdays and holidays.

New Years marks when we talk about our personal, work and family goals. For example, projects around the house, plan what vacation might take, consider our budget, etc.

Late winter and early springtime is when we enjoy activities like college baseball and basketball.

In the summer, we love being out in the sunshine, visiting family, and exploring places like Alaska. Mike really starts a nice beard in Alaska, and Brooke gets sad when he shaves it.

The fall is when we do things like watching football and, if it’s cold enough, Brooke can convince Mike to grow a beard again.

Thanksgiving and Christmas is spent with our big family and the traditional turkey, ham, mashed potatoes. The works! There’s quite a bit of laughter, watching our grown brothers wrestle and little niece open presents.

We carve out some special time around Christmas to really take in the holiday season and enjoy Christmas lights, hot chocolate and Christmas movies.
