  • rich & shannon

    We are married and live in the Green Bay area. We enjoy time spent taking our Schnoodle dog, Scruffles, on long walks, and doing all sorts of other activities with both of our extended families. We have many strong, loving relationships with others, and looking to share these relationships with a child through adoption.


    Rich works for a non-profit corporation in training and sales, while I, Shannon, work for a local financial services company as a marketing specialist. 


    We believe that we are meant to share our family’s love with a child at this time, and would like to invite you to consider a possible adoption with us. Thank you.

  • Katie & andrew

    We are a fun loving couple who try to put Christ first in our lives everyday. 


    We have been married for three years, and live north of the Green Bay area with Rose, our lovable Golden Retriever. In addition to actively participating in our local church, we enjoy spending time together, participating in all sorts of outdoor activities and hanging out with family and friends. 


    I (Katie) work as a Digital Design Specialist and Andrew works as a Trust Operations Specialist at one of our local banks.


    We feel that God has put it in our heart to adopt at this time. We have a desire to give a child a good home, and ask God to help us be great parents as we do so. In all of this, we believe that it is important to have a good, ongoing relationship with the child's birth parents. 


    Thank you for thinking of us as you consider your adoption options. 



  • Sarah & Eric

    Sarah and Eric have been married for six years and live in the Fox Valley area with their two cats whom they love dearly. Eric works for a well-known, large corporation as a customer service representative, and Sarah works in a child learning center as an infant and toddler teacher.


    Sarah and Eric both have a deep desire to adopt, and Eric is motivated in part by seeing his aunt and uncle’s beautiful example of adopting two girls.


    They are both close with their families, often all spending vacations together, as well as enjoying traveling to Michigan to visit family and friends. In addition to these family adventures, Eric likes video games, playing on the computer, paintball, and downhill skiing. Sarah loves all sorts of animals, as well as being a Pinterest type of person, teaching herself to knit and crochet while in college and enjoying cooking for family and friends.


    Eric and Sarah would be honored if you would be interested in considering their family for adoption, and look forward to the possibilities if this would be an option for you.

  • Abbey & Michael

    Abbey and Michael have been married for five years and live in the Manitowoc area, right near Lake Michigan, and have one son named Henry. Michael works for an insurance company, and Abbey works as a registered dietitian at a local hospital. 


    In addition to their “day jobs,” Abbey and Michael have a combined total of 16 years of experience coaching high school cross country and track, which is a passion they both deeply enjoy. This family of three spend a lot of time outdoors year-round, running, hiking, and snowshoeing.


    They feel very strongly about welcoming another child into their home through adoption, and providing him or her a loving, Christian home as faith is core to who they are as a family. They ask that you would please consider them as an adoptive couple as you make your adoption decision.

  • Matt & Angela

    Matt and Angela have been married for four years and live a half-an-hour north of Green Bay with their cat, Marshmallow. 


    Matt is a high school Social Studies teacher and Angela is an elementary school counselor. They love that working during the school year allows them to have off in the summer. They met while working together at a YMCA summer program for kids in 2008.


    When asked about why they want to adopt, they said, "We both love children and welcoming them into our family has never been a question. When a love of adoption began growing in our hearts we knew that God was showing us how we would become parents. We can provide our child with a fun, loving, safe, and supportive home. We are so fortunate to live close to so many family members who will be involved in our child's life."


    Also, they added that all of their parents live in the area, and they enjoy going to their family's cottage in Sturgeon Bay in the summertime.

  • Dan & Kelly

    Dan and Kelly have been married for 7 hears and live in the Green Bay Area. They have one son, two dogs, and are members of St. Bernard’s Parish, also right in Green Bay. Dan graduated from UW Green Bay and Kelly graduated from UW Whitewater. Both of them now work managing and running their family business.


    Their first son was adopted 3 years ago, and their experience of adoption has been a positive one. They love him very much and hope that their family will continue to grow through adoption. There is a wonderful history of adoption in the family as Kelly has an older brother that was adopted, whom she loves dearly. She’s says, “I would not have a sibling if it was not for adoption.”


    Dan and Kelly continue to be close to their extended family, and love spending time with them regularly. They also really enjoy attending football and basketball games. A goal connected to this - One day they hope to travel to EVERY football stadium in the NFL.
