A Letter from Stevie & Michelle
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. We are a Christian family of four looking to grow our family through the miracle of adoption once again. Our hearts are filled with unconditional love and happiness for each other and our children. We are excited to welcome your child into our family and share our passion for the great outdoors with them as well as our 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 twelve years ago and tied the knot four years later with a big, traditional wedding. Throughout our eight 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 have 2 beautiful adopted children, Bentley, our 5-year-old daughter, and Parker, our 1-year-old son. They have brought our lives more joy than we knew was possible. We look forward to growing our family through adoption again and sharing in our many fun, family traditions with your 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, and backcountry camping. She is a wonderful mother to our children. Some of their favorite things to do together are baking cupcakes, taking walks, and telling bedtime stories. Michelle is looking forward to growing our family and is most excited about cooking big family dinners and having popcorn movie nights.
Stevie has a fun-loving energy that lights up any room. He is caring, smart, has an incredible work ethic, and has a captivating sense of humor that makes you laugh so hard your stomach hurts. He will go out of his way to make sure the people around him know they are appreciated. Stevie always knows what to say to be supportive and honest. He loves to watch sports, play golf, camp, grill out, and above all, spend time with our children by coaching baseball, playing superheroes, and building forts.
He is an incredible dad and is excited to adopt again and is excited to share his passion for sports, nature, and family activities with our next child. He looks forward to teaching all of our children important life lessons while having fun along the way!
We live in a 4 bedroom new farmhouse that instantly makes you feel 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 backyard where we have fun roasting marshmallows over a campfire and spend lots of time with the kids running around. We enjoy the nearby parks and walking the nature trail located down the road. Our neighborhood is filled with active children and beautiful young families that make up a wonderful community.
Our daughter Bentley is an energetic, entertaining, happy five-year-old. She loves to dance, practice karate, and loves being a big sister to our son, Parker who is an easy-going, smiley, little one-year-old boy. There is never a dull moment with Bentley and Parker around.
We have 1 dog, Marshmallow, who is a mix and keeps life even more entertaining, Marshmallow loves being around the kids and ensures the floor is always clean when the kids are done eating. Together as a family, we love to take trips to the zoo, cook pudgy pies over a campfire, and have picnics at local parks.
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.
