Hi! Thanks for taking the time to get to know our family. Our names are Bethany and Jeff, and we adopted our son Marcus (almost 4) through AOW.
We live in a sunny and welcoming eastside Madison neighborhood close to lots of friends. Marcus is an excited pre-schooler, running, building and exploring everything. He is very social and loves playing with kids at our neighborhood library and playground.
We are passionate about public service and education. Jeff works on education policy and serves on the Dane County Board of Supervisors, while Bethany works as the Special Events Coordinator for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County.
We both grew up with siblings and want a family with several kids. As Marcus has quickly grown, we knew it was the right time to expand our family. Marcus agrees; one of his favorite toys is a baby stroller he loves to push around the driveway. Now that he is old enough to understand things a little bit better he often says that he wants to be a big brother.
It is amazing to watch Marcus play and begin to use his imagination. He has a Star Wars-themed bedroom, dresses up like Superman, and loves to play with our dog Buttercup. We are looking forward to sharing family adventures with a new baby.
We have been married for over seven years and together since 2002. We know from personal experience the adoption process can be long, difficult and very rewarding. Adoption was the right choice for our family, and Marcus has been amazing. We hope we might be the right choice for you.
