  • eric & nicki

    We are married and have one adoptive son, Brayden, who joined our family through adoption. Our experience of adoption has been a positive one and we're ready to do it again! Also, we like having an open adoption which has been good for us so far and would like to do again.

    Eric works as a truck driver for a farm supply company in the upper Fox Valley, while I, Nicki, work as a product coordinator for a manufacturer in the Fox Cities. 

    In addition to this, Eric is also the president of our local volunteer fire department, which he has been a firefighter with for the past 18 years, and I volunteer with a local adoption support group.

  • 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.

  •  Chris & jackie

    We live north of Green Bay, and are fond of boating, being “up north” and spending time with family. Living in the country, enjoying the outdoors and being family is what we're all about, and we would like to share our love for life with an adoptive child.

    Chris works in sales at a family-operated business in the Green Bay area, while I, Jackie, work as a professional stylist at a local spa and salon.

    We would like to fulfill our dream of having a child and invite you to be a part of making that dream a reality. 

  • Mike & Katie

    We live in the Fox Cities on a quiet, tree-lined street close to several schools and local parks. We share a love for running, Wisconsin sports (especially the Packers), time with our two kitties, Josie and Meb, and we enjoy living in a neighborhood filled with young, growing families. We have recently had the amazing opportunity to be foster parents to an infant from birth through the first several months of life. The whole experience has only strengthened our desire to welcome a child into our home through adoption. 

    Mike is a teacher and girls’ cross country coach at a local high school, while I, Katie, work both as a part-time nurse at a local hospital, and as a nursing instructor at a prominent nursing school in Northeastern Wisconsin. One benefit of Mike’s work is that it gives us a lot of free time in summer, which we're looking forward to sharing with our adoptive child. Thank you for considering us as you look to create your adoption plan.

  • Leah & Mark

    We live in a quiet neighborhood in the Fox Cities with our daughter Isabelle, as well as our cat and their dog. Like many other couples featured on this site who enjoy time outdoors, we really enjoy time at our cabin in the Northwoods, as well as time with family that live close to us.

    I, Leah, am a registered dietician that works for a hospital, and Mark is a process engineer for an electronics manufacturer here in northeastern Wisconsin. 

    Having such a positive experience of adopting Isabelle in 2015, we have decided that our family is ready and willing to welcome another child into our home at this time. We have so much love to give, and Isabelle would love to have a sibling to grow and play with. 

    Thank you for considering our family for adoption.

  • 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.

  • Carrie & Ben

    Carrie and Ben have been married for 5 years, and live north of Green Bay with their two hound dogs, Cooper and Gailee. Ben is a computer programmer, and Carrie is a middle school science teacher. A fun fact about them is they met at Northern Mighigan University on the first day of their freshman year.

    Their life goals include renovating an old house, having a hobby farm, and to continue to enjoy boating, cooking, traveling, and reading.

    Ben and Carrie have always wanted to be parents, and they believe that God is leading them to adoption as the way to build their family. Your choice to adopt might just be this family’s answer to prayer, and they’re grateful for your consideration as you make your decision to adopt.
