We are hoping for a child/children to love and nurture. We believe that adoption is a beautiful way to build a family, and we are committed to providing our child/children with a loving and stable home. We are so grateful for the opportunity to adopt a child, and we can’t wait to meet you!

About Us

We met through a mutual friend about 10 years ago in Michigan. We were both immediately drawn to each other’s sense of humor and our shared love of travel and culture. We’ve always known that we wanted to be parents. It has been quite a journey that made us realize that adoption was the perfect way for us to build a family.

We love spending time together as a couple. We enjoy hiking, going to the movies, trying new restaurants, and traveling. We’re also big fans of spending time with family and friends, as well as hosting events at our lovely home. We’re looking forward to sharing our love and our lives with our child. We can’t wait to teach them about the world, show them all the amazing things that life has to offer, and watch them grow into a kind, compassionate, and loving person.

Our Family

Our extended family is a close-knit group of people who love and support each other. We live in different parts of the country and around the globe, but we make an effort to stay in touch and see each other as often as we can. We use video chat, phone calls, and social media to stay connected, and we try to visit each other at least once a year (if not more!). They are all very supportive of our plans to adopt. They are excited for us to become parents, and they have been very helpful in the adoption process. They have offered us advice and support.

We have many traditions that we look forward to sharing with our child. We love to spend the holidays together while preparing delicious food and long-lasting memories. We are excited to create new traditions with our child and to pass on the traditions that we love from our own families. We know that our child will be loved and supported by our extended family, and we can’t wait to see all the traditions that we will create together.

Our Home in Michigan

We live in a 4-bedroom home in Southeast Michigan. Our home is within walking distance to a suburban downtown and city park area, which is a great place for us to walk and enjoy the outdoors. Our home is also close to several schools, parks, and museums. We are so grateful for our home and our neighborhood. We know that it will be a wonderful place for our child/children to grow up.

A few things about where we live:

• We live in a two-story home with an attached garage, and a finished basement for extra space to play during the wintertime.
• The backyard is fenced in, which is perfect for Bruno (our dog) and our future children. We love spending time in the backyard!
• We love being able to walk to the downtown area for coffee, lunch, or dinner.
• There are several parks in our neighborhood, including City Park, which is a great place to play with Bruno or have a picnic.
• There are also several museums in our county, including an Art & Historical Museum.
• We are surrounded by natural beauty in our neighborhood.
• Schools and a public library are within walking distance.
