Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We admire your strength and courage during this time in your life and we are grateful to you for considering us to care for your baby. We know that you will make the decision that is best for both of you.
We both grew up in big families and have always hoped for a large family ourselves. We have been married for nearly 14 years and in that time have been blessed with our children. We have a biological daughter, Delia, now about 9 years old, and our son James, who was adopted at birth 3 years ago. We have chosen to expand our family once more through adoption and James and Delia are excited to welcome a new sibling to the family.
We have deep roots in our community that afford us strong support systems with friends and family that are a strong presence in the lives of our family. We have stability in our jobs, which we both enjoy immensely, but that offer a good work life balance for our family. Our home is filled with music, books and lots of laughter and love. We are certain we are ready for the adventures and challenges that we would encounter with another child. We look forward to expanding our family through adoption once more.

Who We Are
Mike and I met in College 17 years ago and both say that we knew we would marry the other right away. We have been married now for 14 years and have had many adventures together.
We have traveled together, built a happy home together and have seen one another through both the joys of parenting and the trials of infertility. With each challenge we have only grown to love and respect one another more and have grown closer.
Adoption opens you to a world of new traditions, new challenges, and many many lessons along the way. Three years ago about 6 weeks after we adopted James at birth, we celebrated our first Mother’s Day as a family of 4. But the day before Mother’s Day is known as Birth Mother’s or First Mother’s Day. Every year we try to honor James’ first mother with a basket of goodies, a picture or some homemade treat. She is gracious enough to not judge me almost never getting packages out on time. But Birth Mother’s Day has become so special to me. There are all types of mothers and James’ First Mother is an exceptional mother. She has made me a better mother, a better human. I treasure her and am so grateful for her and for our open adoption which allows her to continue to be a force of love in his life.
Trying to take a selfie with a 3 yr old is no easy task. Dad always makes James smile but sometimes you get these goofy looks . The farm animals we saw on this chilly wet spring day were too distracting for James
