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

Hello!

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

 Hello! 

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

Dear Expecting Parents, 

We have written this letter over and over again. We want this letter to be filled with assurances, love, compassion and honor. We have a deep compassion for where you may be at right now reading these words, but also know we are very excited to invite a new child into our family and provide them with love and care. When people ask us why we want to adopt when we already have biological children, we honestly say because our heart breaks at the thought of a child needing a home. And God has blessed us with space in our hearts and home to welcome another child in. 

As birth parents, you will hold a place of honor in our family, for your courage and selflessness in wanting to provide what is best for your baby. Your child will always know where they came from, and that they are loved by their birth and adopted parents. 

We promise our home will always be a place of comfort and refuge, where they will be welcomed no matter their path in life. Our home will be a place where they will experience diversity. We promise to expose our children to people and cultures different than our own, so they can see the beauty and wisdom in all of God’s creation. Our home will be filled with compassion for our fellow man, so our children will learn to help those in need and share in the blessings God has given us. Our house will value education, but will tailor that education to meet the need of each child, so their knowledge will grow out of encouragement and not shame. Our home will be a place where laughter will fill the house with joy. Our home will be a place of peace, where we will teach our children how to handle life’s frustrations with grace and mercy. 

But most of all, our home will be a place where they will not just be told that God loves them, but they will know it by how we love them. 

It would be our incredible honor to be the adoptive parents to your child. Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about our family. We look forward to meeting you. 

With love, 

Cyndi and Anthony

I’m Daniel, an electrical engineer, and I’m Olga, a second grade dual-language teacher with a master’s degree in reading. We also have two small dogs named Choco and Chespi. It’s nice to meet you. We invite you to flip through these pages and get a glimpse into our lives. You will find that we love traveling and are close to our families. We also love going to the Cubs games. I, Dan, personally enjoy cooking and home improvement projects. My favorite is making pizza from scratch, which I learned from my dad. I, Olga, enjoy running and kickboxing. We both love reading books, especially on the beach. We are very excited at the possibility of welcoming your baby into our loving family. There are no words that we can write here to express how truly grateful we are for your sacrifice. All we can say is thank you, and hope you can take comfort in knowing your child will be raised in a loving and stable home.
