Dear Birth Parents:

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us as you make this important decision. In the following pages, we hope to highlight and capture the essence of our loving and charismatic family.

We met eight years ago when we were both in law school and have been married since 2012. We are energetic people and constantly on the move. Life has so much to offer and we enjoy experiencing it together. On summer weekends, we enjoy going for bike rides and relaxing by the beach near our home. We have always known that we wanted to have children and want to adopt because we feel that we can give a loving home to a child. We wish to imprint our values of compassion, integrity, and education on our child.

Steve is the eldest of three children, Ryan is the ninth of ten, and we currently have fourteen nieces and nephews. We love our family and spend a great deal of time with them, whether it be in the Chicagoland area (where Steve was raised), Detroit area (where Ryan was raised), or around the globe.We cannot wait for our adoptive child to become a part of our large extended family.

As you will see in the forthcoming pages, we enjoy learning about new things, experiencing different cultures, and spending time with loved ones. We live in a diverse and vibrant neighborhood just 2 blocks from beaches and parks along Lake Michigan in Chicago. We enjoy all of the activities living in the City offers, such as the museums, sporting events, festivals, concerts, and theater.

We hope that through this website you will learn a little bit about us, our families, our home, and our friends so you can decide if we are the family to raise your child. We know this is a difficult decision for you, but we thank you for potentially giving us the gift to be parents to your beautiful child.


Steve and Ryan
