Hello, we’re Kris and Lesley!  Thank you for looking at our profile and considering us as part of your adoption plan.

We met 13 years ago at the Memorial Union; had a beautiful wedding in 2009, and have been legally married since 2015.  We have an amazing labrador named Paulie and recently bought our first home on the west side of Madison, where we can’t wait to grow our family through adoption!

We both have fulfilling jobs we find great joy in: Kris is a librarian at a community college and Lesley works with communities as the director of a public health Leadership Institute. We love spending time at home: hanging out on our three-season porch, playing board games, and cooking together. We also enjoy movies, photography, gardening, and walking Paulie around our neighborhood.  We’re surrounded by lots of parks and nature trails–only a stone’s throw from the UW Arboretum.  We also enjoy traveling together, and frequently go on vacation with family.  We always have fun exploring and look forward to sharing new adventures with our child.  In addition to visiting friends and family that live across the country, we love going to Chicago and can’t wait to experience the city with our child.

Our family and close friends have shown us incredible love and support in our journey to become parents. We feel so incredibly blessed to have them involved in our future child’s life. Kris is from Madison and their mom lives in town, looking forward to being a granny. Lesley’s parents live in the Chicago-area, where Lesley grew up, but are moving to Madison to be full-time grandparents. Lesley’s sister and brother-in-law are in Atlanta with plans to visit every chance they get. Family is so important to us, and we are excited and ready to be parents.
