Michelle and Kevin

Hello! We are Michelle and Kevin. Thank you for taking the time to read a little about us and for considering us to be a significant part of your adoption plan for your child.

We have been together for almost 12 years and we have been married for eight of those years. We like to think our personalities complement each other in ways that bring out the best in the other and we try to always assume we are thinking or acting on the best interest of the other—traits that have helped our relationship to strengthen and grow over the years. You’ll find that we look for opportunities to have fun and laugh with each other, because why not?

We are excited to become first-time parents! Going through the events that led us to adoption has helped us better understand why we want to become parents. We will strive to be role models who encourage their children to pursue their interests, learn the joy that can come from hard work, and be empathetic and active in their social circles. We want our future child to learn the difference between privileges and rights, and to speak up assertively when something isn’t equitable.

We live in Waunakee, Wisconsin with strong, supportive family members in neighboring towns. Kevin is a leader and enthusiastic about his work in the insurance industry. He sets high goals for himself, but he is also good at knowing when to set aside time for family and self-care. Michelle is an educator at heart and has taught in elementary schools for the past ten years. She is passionate about helping each child develop her self-confidence and grow through mistakes and triumphs and to strive for greatness.

Perhaps we are looking for each other along our respective adoption journeys? If you think we might be what you are looking for as you create your adoption plan, please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask more questions before possibly meeting. We are looking forward to hearing about your wishes, hopes and dreams for your child. We would be honored to meet you, to learn your story and to share in this with you. And whether or not we are the couple for you, the love and selflessness you are showing your unborn child is truly an inspiration and gives us strength to move forward in our own adoption process.

We wish you all the best and hope that you are feeling supported. Thank you again for taking the time to read a bit about us!

deep sea fishing off the florida coast. neither of us are fishermen, so those smiles are equal parts proud and awkward. the fish lived on to tell its story of harassment.

This is our dog, Jack. His first attempt at fishing up at our family’s lake house in wild rose. his fishing “skills” amuse lake-goers every summer. he’s much better with children than fish.
