We respect this hard decision you are having to make. We will do all we can to support you during this difficult time. We can empathize with all the feelings you are and will experience during this process. Whether an open or closed adoption the word “birth parents” will be used openly from the start. We do not want our child to ever wonder or be ashamed of their background. We want them to feel comfortable with who they are and to know that it does not matter how they came into our lives because they are loved by all involved.
Our promise to you is to love this child unconditionally and support their dreams. We will share with them what a selfless decision you have made in finding them their forever parents. We are open to sharing milestones, photos and special moments with you if that is what you choose. Along with us our extended family and friends are eager to welcome our newest addition into the family.

Mike and Nikki began dating in 2007 and dated for three years before getting married in 2010. As cliché as it may sound, it was love at first sight. We both grew up at the same part of town and went to the same schools growing up. Finally, in 2007 a couple of mutual friends without our knowledge made it possible for us to meet. From there everything just fell into place. Our marriage has been built upon a foundation of love + respect for one another. We genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Mike is loving, caring, enthusiastic, fun and full of life. Mike is always sought out by our friends as he tends to be the life of the party. He also has a very quiet + loving side that shows in the way he treats family, friends + acquaintances. Nikki is very loving, caring, family-oriented and self motivated. She is also a little spontaneous and likes to surprise Mike with little fishing trips or tickets to local activities. Nikki’s love for children is very strong as she has an early childhood background. She always has crafts + activities ready for our friends’ children and family when they visit.
We have a two bedroom home in a smaller city. We are close to bigger cities with lots of activities including a zoo, parks, baseball fields, hockey rink and sports complexes. We like to attend a variety of activities.
We have two dogs. Milo is a nine pound yorkie/maltese mix. Otis is a seventy pound black lab/blue healer mix. Our pups love children and are very sweet and patient with them. They love walks and playing fetch.
