Hi! We are Alex and Colleen. We are so happy you have chosen to learn a little bit about us. The decision to start our family through adoption has lead us to the beginning of an incredible journey. As we both come from large, close families, we are so excited to add a new member to the bunch. We have been together for 12 years and married four 4 years. In that time, we have become more and more excited to be a part of the adoption process.

Colleen has worked at a software company for the past year after working in childcare for 10 years, an experience she cherishes. She decided to switch to software to challenge herself and follow more closely in line with her degree. She has learned more about technology over the past year than she ever knew her whole life! Alex works for an HVAC supply company. He is a part of the Champions Club, which is a group of the top 20 representatives in North America. We have been fortunate enough to go on three cruises because of his achievements!

We are on a bowling team together and Alex is also in two softball leagues. We love these activities because it keeps us active and gives us a chance to hang out with our friends every week. We also love to attend sporting events such as Marquette basketball games, Brewers and Cubs games, and Packers and Bears games. We might not cheer for the same teams but we love watching them play. We are lucky to live close to Alex's family so we get to see them often. Colleen's family is out of town but we make trips to see them as much as possible, especially to play with our adorable little niece. Both of our families are extremely supportive of our decision to adopt and we have relatives on both sides with experience to guide us.

We hope you would like to learn more about our lives by checking out our book below. We appreciate the love and care that has lead you to your decision to place your child for adoption. While we look to grow our family, we are filled with joy as we prepare to add a new member. We wish you the very best in finding the right family for your child.
