Thank you for considering our family to forever love and provide for your child. We are a fun family of three from Wisconsin hoping to expand our family through adoption. Family is a central part of our lives, so we use our time to spend it laughing, playing, and traveling together. We have so much love to give and are excited to share our safe and loving home, family, and traditions your child. We would be thrilled to meet you and find out more about your dreams for your baby. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and our family.
We met online and have been together since our first date, over 12 years ago. We knew we were meant to be together. We have been happily married for over 10 years now. We are best friends and genuinely enjoy spending time together. We love to be outdoors hiking, biking, camping, all things sports, and golfing. We love music and go to many concerts, festivals, and musicals throughout the year. Greg has a daughter, Nola, from a previous marriage that we have enjoyed raising together and allowing her to pursue her passions. She is looking forward to becoming a big sister and sharing her love of music and art with your child.
What I Love About Greg (from Natalie)
Greg is an amazing father and that is what made me fall in love with him. The love he has for his daughter just melts me. He is kind, supportive, loving, and very patient. He is very funny and always makes us laugh. He is the king of dad jokes! He has a variety of interests from golf, grilling, reading, tennis, and video games that he is excited to share with your child. Greg also loves to play his bass guitar and is learning the banjo. He is a knowledgeable sports fan who enjoys teaching them as well, loves camping, and even likes math! Greg is my best friend and will be an amazing father and role model for your son/daughter to look up to.
What I Love About Natalie (from Greg)
Natalie is one of the warmest and friendliest people you will ever meet. She volunteers at church with Sunday school and confirmation. She also volunteers for a women’s shelter. My daughter Nola was 3 years old when Natalie met her and she’s loved her as her own ever since. Natalie has created a special bond with our daughter. They bake, shop, watch tv shows, and even paint together. We call our daughter “Glue” for how she sticks to Natalie when we’re out. She is looking forward to sharing her love for baking, game nights, family trips, camping, and more with your child. Natalie has shown she’s a wonderful mom and will provide a safe, warm home for your child.
Our Home in Wisconsin
We live in a 5-bedroom ranch style home in a highly rated school district. The nursery is painted with fun woodland animals and trees. The nursery was on of the reasons we fell in love with this home. We live in a safe community with parks, lakes, and an amazing year-round farmers market.
Our kitchen has a ton of space which helps us host our family holidays in our home. We have a gas fireplace in the living room that makes a great spot to warm up and hang of Christmas stockings. There is a cozy sunroom that is perfect to snuggle up and read books with our cats. It overlooks a big backyard with lots of room to run and play. One day we will swing set for your child to play on. We have a patio where we cookout and have fires to roast s’mores. We grow many varieties of vegetables in our garden as well as have lots of flowers, plants, and trees all around the yard. Our backyard is a fantastic place to relax with family and friends.
Greg has a 16-year-old daughter, Nola, from a previous marriage. Our weekends with her are filled with various trips and activities. She has younger siblings at her mom’s house and is looking forward to becoming a big sister again.
Greg has a younger brother and sister and Natalie has an older sister. We spend lots of time with our families golfing or at the lake. Both sets of parents are excited to welcome a new grandchild. We are close to our extended families and your child would have the opportunity to grow up with loving aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and great-grandparents.
About Our Faith and Traditions
We were both raised in the Lutheran faith and are active in our church. Church service is the focus of the major holidays. We host Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas at our house with both of our families. There is always lots of laughter when we are all together. Christmas involves ringing bells for the Salvation Army and a weekend of making cookies to share with family and friends. 4th of July is spent with a week up at the lake boating, swimming, campfires, and fishing with family.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and will provide him or her with a loving, safe place to call home. We promise to provide them with every opportunity possible. We promise dance parties, family jam sessions, learning how to fish, baking cookies on a cold winter day, camping trips, and family and friends that will shower your child with so much love. We will encourage him or her to follow their heart and dreams and will provide a solid education and opportunities to explore the world. We promise to share their adoption story and honor you. We welcome and open adoption and promise to support you and the communication you feel most comfortable with. Your son or daughter will know how much they are loved by you, by us, and by God.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
Greg loves to play bass guitar, computer games, fish, hike, bike, grill, read, and play basketball with his daughter.
Natalie loves to read, bake, garden, bike, fish, sit by our fire pit, paint, sail and play board games.
As a family, we love to go camping or spend time at our family cottage on the lake. We also golf as a family. Weekends are often filled with road trips whether it's a trip to the zoo, to see a concert, to a sporting event, to visit all of the great museums and stores in Chicago, a family biking trip to a local island, or simply cooking out with friends and family. There is always something to take advantage of each weekend. When we do stay home, we watch movies, play board games, and even play music together.
We were both raised in the Lutheran church. Our family is active in our church community. Greg lived in Louisiana for a large part of his childhood so we cooked up jambalaya and king cake for our church for Mardi Gras. They also brought in a jazz band for our worship service. It's a fun church with great activities for youth. Natalie volunteers as a Sunday school teacher. Our faith is important to us and we will raise our child in the Lutheran faith.
Our Musical Interest
We both love to play guitar and have a variety of musical interests. We have a music room in our house and like to have family jam sessions regularly. We go to quite a few concerts each year. One of our favorite events is Irish Fest in Milwaukee which has many Irish bands, dance groups, and great food. We also enjoy Summerfest in Milwaukee which has some of the biggest names in music.
