Hello, We are Dan and Natalie and we are honored to be considered as adoptive parents for your son. We are an easy-going, fun-loving family of four who enjoys spending time together making memories. We are so excited to be adopting and bringing another child into our family! Our family loves to take adventures together both near and far and play games! We are praying for you and your child already and look forward to meeting you!
We met in college and while Dan knew early on that Natalie was the love of his life, Natalie played hard to get and the rest is history! We’ve been happily married now for 12 years and have been blessed to have two beautiful daughters, Brynley and Maycie. Together we love to go on vacations, go swimming/boating, and get together with friends and family. At the same time, we also appreciate the little things like hot-tubbing at home, going to a movie, and game nights. We are ready and excited to welcome your child into our family and share with him all of our family fun!
Dan is the kindest man I’ve ever met. He is always thinking of others before himself. He’s an amazing Dad and a true partner as a parent! With our children, he’s involved, dependable, and protective. He is also a good provider for our family through his roofing business. I’m so incredibly grateful for how he leads our family! He is a true outdoorsman and some of his hobbies include golfing, hunting, and fishing. He is excited to share these passions and more with a son.
Natalie is a loving wife, mother, and devoted friend. She has a deep love for children which makes her a wonderful mom and a fantastic teacher! Reading is a big part of Natalie’s life, it’s her favorite subject to teach and one of her favorite past times. She loves to cuddle up inside with a blanket, cup of tea, and a good book. She’s excited to share her love of reading with your child. Some activities she enjoys include attending a woman’s Bible study and helping with the youth group at church. She is someone you can count on to be there for you in any situation.
Our Home in South Dakota
We live in a family-friendly neighborhood, with a park a block away. Our home is a three-story with 5 bedrooms and a playroom. Our favorite place in our house is our large family/dining room because it is set up for family fun! We are so grateful to be surrounded by our loving, supportive family and friends and love having them over for barbecues and games.
Our home has beautiful views of the mountains, yet is in a convenient location for attending community activities like shopping, bowling, and going to the movies. We are surrounded by incredible mountains, lakes, and rivers where we enjoy fishing, boating, and hiking the trails on the weekends.
We are both family-oriented individuals and are close to both sides of our extended family. We have dinner nights with those that are close and Facetime and visit with our family that lives out of state. Even a few hours apart, we are close-knit.
We have two daughters, Brynley (9) and Maycie (6).
Brynley is our sweet and sensitive firstborn. She is always saying how much she loves us and finds a way to sneak in some snuggle time. She is the best big sister always helping. She enjoys dance and playing school.
Maycie is our spunky second-born. She is always on the go! She has the best imagination and loves to play. She enjoys playing dress-up then dancing around the living room and is in gymnastics.
Both our girls are so excited to bring a sibling into our family and pray for you every day in their prayers.
We have found the best part of being a parent is not only the love we have to give but receive from our children as well! We promise to support your son’s own unique talents and personality. We promise to provide a loving and nurturing environment for him where he can be supported to achieve his dreams, obtain a private school education, and learn to treasure every moment. We will unconditionally love and cherish your child and will make sure that he is proud to be adopted.

More About Our Family
Dan is a roofer for his family business. He started working for his dad in high school part time then worked full time when he graduated college and is now part owner. Natalie is a kindergarten teacher at a private school and is looking forward going part time to have more time at home. Her favorite part of her job is dress-up days!
As a family we have many traditions. Holidays are a fun dress up time. The 4th of July is Dan's favorite holiday so we go all out with dressing in red, white, and blue every year. Every Halloween we do pumpkin carving and enjoy themed family costumes. We even do matching pjs at Christmas time during present opening. Our children pick their own theme for their birthday party with family and friends. Each year we take a family vacation and go on an annual fishing excursion getaway.
We are members at a private country club where we frequent the pool and golf course for fun family time. On the weekends we fill our family time with activities such as boating, bowling, going to the movies, or seeing shows at the community theatre. Every summer we attend Hills Alive, a Christian concert in the park.
We have enjoyed being parents and look forward to adding another child to our family. We are very excited to be adopting and have so much love to share with your child. We will cherish your son and make sure that he grows up knowing his story and to be proud of it. We hope this profile gave you a look at our lives and we look forward to meeting you. Please know that we pray for you already and look forward to meeting you!
