Hello!

We are Jess and Tim. We greet you with warm hearts and open minds.

We are in our early thirties, enjoy being active, and work hard to be good people. We are very close to our families and friends and have a terrific support network – everyone is excited and grateful to welcome our future child  We have been together for almost seven years, and married for almost two. Our lives together are filled with adventure, laughter, and love, and we are so excited to grow our family through adoption!

We have many interests and pastimes! During the warm months we hike and run, travel, attend sporting events, and work in our vegetable garden. During the winter, we explore, attend nearby winter festivals, and read stacks of books. Year round, we love spending time with our families (our eleven nieces and nephews especially!), visiting with our large circle of friends, and volunteering for community organizations and events. Jess is a school psychologist and Tim is a school counselor-- both at the same K-12 rural school; allowing us summers off together!

We recently purchased our dream home, which is situated on 12 beautiful acres in the rolling hills of Southwest Wisconsin-- plenty of room to run and play! Friends and family visit us often for holidays and special events. We enjoy the quiet times that living in the country allows, such as reading by the fireplace, snoozing in the hammock, roasting S’mores around our fire pit, and daily walks with our dog, Arlo. We are centrally located to several city parks, hiking trails, the city library, and local schools.

We love the lives we’ve built together, and are very excited to share our love with a child. Becoming parents has long been something we’ve imagined about and planned for with excitement and loving anticipation. Our hope for our children is that they will grow up to be kind, caring, and respectful of others. We want them to embrace diversity, to be proud of who they are, to celebrate their adoption story, and to know and love the people and places they come from. We promise to honor our future child's adoption story and we welcome openness in a way that works for you.

We can’t imagine the emotion and energy it takes to work toward your decision. We hope you are blessed with good health and good people around you as you consider. We can't wait to meet you!

With Kind Thoughts,

Jess & Tim
