Stephanie and Eric are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!


We both want to thank you for giving us this chance to expand our family. Eric and I are both teachers in the area. We dated for 5 years and got married in 2014. Our plan was be in love, get married, and have a big family. Our plan started to come to fruition when we became pregnant with Cameron. Cameron was born in 2015. After the birth I began to have health symptoms relating to pregnancy. Low and behold the doctor recommends that pregnancy isn’t a safe option for us, but that hasn’t stopped Eric and I and our dreams of a bigger family. Cameron is a healthy 2 year old, who enjoys being mischievous. Cameron has opportunities to interact with other children his age through park district programs and preschool. The saying it takes a village to raise a kid is true and dear to Eric and I. Our parents play a huge role in Cameron’s life. Both our parents watch Cameron throughout the weekdays. We want all of our children to feel safe, emotionally supported and loved. Thank you for giving us the chance to expand our family and to give our love and support to another child.

Hi! It’s nice to meet you!

We appreciate that you are taking the time to get a glimpse of our family through this book. We believe that family is about caring for and supporting one another. We live that through our daily interactions with one another and through our faith. While we have been blessed in our lives up to this point, we still have something missing – a new child to love and hold, a sibling to strengthen the bond of our children and a new little person to help grow into the best big person that they can be. And that’s what we’re all about.

Although we don’t yet know you, you’re often on our minds! We can’t imagine the emotions you are feeling right now, but we hope that you find moments of peace in your decision. We know that it is made with love and that you are looking for the best family fit to give your child opportunities… please know this choice you are making says something about the kind of person you are. We can’t thank you enough for your ability to be so selfless!

Thank you for taking the time to meet our family!

Megan and John

Nice to meet you,

Thank you for taking the time to consider us. We understand that a decision like this is not easily made, and we would be forever grateful if we are chosen for this gift. We promise to provide love, support, laughter, and guidance to this precious life. Our journey to become parents began in 2011. After IVF was unsuccessful, we decided it was time to explore the wonderful opportunities that being adoptive parents could provide. We invite you to take a moment to view our story.

On our very first date, we snuck out of our agriculture economics class to eat pumpkin ice cream on a fall day too beautiful for numbers and lectures. Somehow, we subconsciously knew that we were meant to start an adventure together. We laughed so naturally that day and somehow wound up talking about our common dreams of living in the country and raising kids in a big white farmhouse with a garden and green grass and sunshine.

In the 9 years since that day, we have dedicated our lives to building the foundations of those dreams. We have been renovating our farmhouse (right down to the white siding) and hoping for a child to join us.  We’ve built a beautiful life together full of laughter and love (not to mention green grass, sunshine, and cuddly creatures). We are the kind of people who sing in the kitchen, admire the stars, and give our pets middle names. We believe first and foremost that we were all put on this earth to help each other.  We may not be rich or famous or powerful, but we are kind people who work hard to make our little corner of the world a better place. We feel lucky have a wonderful tribe of family and friends who are waiting with us, arms open, to welcome our child into to the fold.

We know that everyone who writes an adoption profile is coming from a place of love, hope, and gratitude. In that regard, we are not different from or better than the many other couples whose profiles you may be reading. Like them, we have hoped for a child. Like them, we will love and care for a child. Like them, we are so grateful for the opportunity to start our family.

We are guessing that what will help you choose is a connection — an intangible feeling that the profile you’re reading is about the people who are meant to raise your baby. We know without a doubt that there are a mother and child we are meant to know.

Please know that in choosing us to raise your child, you are welcome to join our adventure, too.  There are so many ways to make and be a family!

With Love,

Mitch & Meg

Thank you for viewing our profile! We admire your courage for choosing adoption and are thrilled you chose to view our profile! Through our struggle with infertility our faith has led us to adoption and we are excited to become parents and will love and support your child. We will encourage him/her to get a good education, build a strong Christian faith, and follow their passions. We will listen to their needs and opinions, and will always be there to support their decisions. We enjoy spending time with family and friends, whether it’s camping or just hanging out at home watching movies or playing board games. We look forward to including him/her in our everyday activities, vacations/trips, and family traditions.

We are so thankful that our paths have crossed today. We recognize this incredibly brave decision you’ve made and we are honored for you to consider us as adoptive parents. We believe so strongly that everything happens for a reason! Our hearts are so full with the life we’ve built to this day, but words can’t express how excited, how ready we are to expand our family. We will love this baby with no limits, we will raise him/her in a home of faith, a home of respect, a home of unconditional support and most importantly, a home full of laughter. We will always strive to lead by example. We will parent in a way that encourages our child to forge his/her own path, to follow their dreams and to push through when the going gets tough. We will encourage bravery. We will teach him/her to love fiercely and to live a life of passion, of service and of purpose. We will be a family that makes mistakes but learns from them, together. We will be a source of stability and of course, a source of endless laughter! Seriously, you should already hear Kevin’s dad jokes. We are so grateful for your consideration!

Hello and thank you for looking at our profile! Adoption is such an enormous act of love and bravery and generosity, and we know that whatever family you choose for your baby will have their lives enriched beyond measure. We have hoped and waited for a third child for over five years now. We love being parents, and our two daughters (Lulu and Agnes) love being sisters, and it would bring all four of us so much joy to be able to share our life and our happiness with another little soul. Please know that if you choose us, we will love and cherish your baby every day of his or her life. 

With love,

Tim and Mirjam
