A Letter from Dan & Michelle

Dear Birthmother,

We are a loving couple that is truly excited to be first time parents through adoption. We will provide your child with a loving, stable home with joy, fun, laughter and endless opportunities to learn and grow. We look forward to learning about you and your hopes for your child.

About Us

We are a loving, Christian, family-oriented, adventurous couple that enjoys traveling and experiencing new things. When we met we immediately realized we have a lot in common from our interests to the area that we grew up in. We enjoy going out together on weekends whether it is going to a museum, the zoo or going for walks when it is nice out. We both are very excited to start our family through adoption and sharing our experiences and our love for seeing new places and learning new things with your child. A favorite vacation spot for us has been Disney and we especially look forward to sharing that experience as well.

About Michelle From Dan

Michelle is all about making sure the family has everything we need. She wakes up early to make lunch, with a cute note included and makes sure the cats are fed.  Dinner is breathtaking where she turns the most basic ingredients into a masterpiece worthy of a master chef.

Michelle makes things happen and is always there to support others. From planning fundraisers for special needs to helping her family recover from hurricanes in Florida. When she is not working she enjoys going to yoga classes, relaxing with a good book, coloring and taking long runs through our neighborhood. Other times she can be found on the couch, wrapped in a blanket, watching her favorite hospital TV drama. She will be an amazing mother and will instill a lifetime passion for learning in our child.

About Dan From Michelle

Dan is a loving and supportive husband. He would do anything for family and friends often helping in times of need. He has a big heart and is one the most generous, passionate, determined man I know. Dan always knows how to make a person smile and laugh. He loves new experiences, going on adventures, playing chess and working with computers. I have always enjoyed his spontaneous nature and love his sudden weekend getaways and adventures with our niece and nephew.

He will be an amazing father providing love, support, laughter, knowledge, and experiences to our child. I know that he is excited to teach our child all about computers and to share his love of chess.

Our Home in Illinois

We have a 3 bedroom townhome in a small quiet suburb area. Our home is bright, welcoming and we love the fact that we are close to parks, the zoo, and museums. There is even a park down the street from our home and several beautiful and safe walking areas to take a stroll through after dinner. We share our home with our two cats, Sadie and Angus, who are both sweet and love people.

Our Family

Michelle is the youngest of 4 and has a very close family. Her mom and two sisters now live in Florida and her niece lives in Tennesee with her son. We visit Florida two to three times a year and talk almost every day. They are excited to welcome a child into the family and share their love for dolphins, boats, the beach and so much more.

Dan has two wonderful sisters. His older sister has three children and they all enjoy going on our adventures with us. His younger sister lives with his mom and stepdad. They are all excited to welcome another child in the family!

We love celebrating holidays with family and are looking forward to starting new traditions with your child. A favorite Christmas tradition is going to see the zoo lights as a big group.

Our Promise

We promise to provide your child with unconditional love and support as well as a nurturing environment with opportunities to learn and grow.  We will share our love for new things and traveling, as well as support, encourage, and provide opportunities for your child to follow his or her interests and dreams.

We welcome an open adoption and would be glad to share photos and updates and a visit if that is your wish.

Respectfully,

Michelle and Dan
