A Letter from Stevie & Michelle
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. We are a fun-loving Christian couple excited to grow our family through the miracle of adoption. Our hearts are filled with unconditional love and happiness for each other and our beautiful daughter. One of the greatest blessings would be for us to welcome another child into our family to share that same joy, in a home filled with laughter, love, and faith.
We grew up together in a small town in the heart of Wisconsin and have been best friends since we were kids. We began dating nine years ago and tied the knot four years later with a big, traditional wedding. Throughout our five years of marriage, we continue to learn, grow, and laugh together each and every day.
Our love for the outdoors helps us to stay active by camping, hiking, kayaking, and playing sports. We adopted our beautiful baby girl three years ago, and she has brought us more joy than we knew was possible. We look forward to growing our family through adoption and sharing in our many fun, family traditions with another child.
I admire and respect so many qualities about Michelle. She is the most kind, sincere, non-judgmental person I have ever known. I look up to her and continue to learn from her on how to live a Christian life and put God and family first. Her positive attitude, outlook on life, and cheerful personality is contagious. Her ear to ear smile and her laugh will simply make your day.
Michelle enjoys playing volleyball, gardening, long-distance running, reading, baking cupcakes with our daughter, and most of all, having home-cooked family meals every night. She is a wonderful mother to our beautiful daughter, Bentley, and is looking forward to growing our family. She is most excited to read bedtime stories and have popcorn movie nights.
Stevie has a fun-loving energy that will light up a room. He is caring, smart, has a captivating sense of humor, and has an incredible work ethic. He will go out of his way to make sure the people around him know they are appreciated. Stevie loves to watch sports, play golf, camp, grill out, and above all, spend time with our daughter by reading stories and teaching her new things.
Stevie always knows what to say to be supportive and honest. He is an incredible dad and is excited to adopt again and share in the wonderful experiences that we do together as a family with another child. He looks forward to telling stories, coaching sports, and teaching our children life lessons while having fun along the way.
We live in a 3 bedroom, modern-rustic home that makes you feel so cozy when you walk in. We have a deck off the back where we often spend time hosting family parties or eating breakfast together in the mornings. We have a big back yard where we have fun roasting marshmallows over a campfire or spend lots of time kicking around the soccer ball. We are surrounded by wonderful kid-friendly families.
Our daughter Bentley is an energetic, entertaining, happy three-year-old. She loves to dance, listen to children’s stories, and loves animals. She has a fun-loving personality, and there is never a dull moment with Bentley around. We were chosen to be Bentley’s parents through adoption, which was the greatest blessing, and we cherish every second we have with her. Together as a family, we love to take trips to different zoos, cook pudgy pies over a campfire, and have picnics near local parks. Bentley can’t wait to be a big sister!
We are fortunate to have all members of our family live nearby where we often get to spend quality time together. We come from loving parents that we share a very close relationship with. Stevie has two sisters and Michelle grew up with four older brothers. Combined, we have 11 nieces and nephews that we love to play sports and games with. Our families are excited for another baby to join in all the love and laughter we share together.
We promise to love your child unconditionally with a life built on faith, love, and laughter. We promise to raise your child with a Catholic education and that we will guide them through all lessons of life, teach them right from wrong, and help them to open the door for opportunities. We promise to provide a happy home where your child can grow, dream, and experience all adventures of life.
We are open to future contact through letters, pictures, visits, and videos. We look forward to walking through this journey with you. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
