Watch Our Video
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We are an active, faith-filled, and fun-loving couple who truly enjoys being with one another. We thoroughly enjoy going to sporting events and spending time outdoors at the lake swimming, kayaking, boating, and BBQing with our family and friends. We look forward to welcoming your child into our family and experiencing all of life's adventures with them. We are open to adopting a boy or girl of any ethnicity and are incredibly excited to embark on this path of adoption as a way to grow our family. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing this journey together.
Our story begins in Nebraska - The Good Life! Our first date was in 2014 after meeting online, and the rest was history. We quickly bonded over our shared love for traveling, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, animals, and our enjoyment in a variety of outdoor activities/sports. We love going to live sporting events and have traveled several times to cheer on our Nebraska Cornhuskers and Green Bay Packers. We love spending our summers on the lake and enjoy boating, kayaking, swimming, and fishing.
Shortly after we were married and had decided that we were ready to begin our family, we began experiencing infertility issues. After several unsuccessful fertility treatments, we prayed for guidance and were lead to adoption. We are excited and ready to welcome your child into our loving family. We look forward to sharing our love for the outdoors and are excited to teach them how to swim, fish, and try various water sports on the lake. We believe that life is a beautiful adventure, and will help your child to make the most of theirs.
Meet my husband, Lee
Lee is a kind-hearted, intelligent, supportive, loyal, and loving partner. His witty sense of humor keeps me smiling and he always knows how to make me laugh. He has been working for his family's transportation business since he was a teenager and is now in charge of day-to-day operations and specializes as a diesel mechanic.
I love seeing Lee's relationship with his nieces and nephews. He often can be found at family parties playing with the kids on the ground or out swimming in the lake with them. Lee is an avid sports fan, and while he loves all sports he is particularly fond of football and golf. Lee is a very accomplished golfer and played competitively throughout high school and college. Lee will be an amazingly supportive and fun-loving dad and I know he is excited to share his love of sports with your child.
Meet my wife, Katie
Katie is the kindest, most nurturing, and intelligent person I know. She is a compassionate veterinarian, who strives to provide the best care for her patients and is loved by many clients, who ask specifically for her. She also loves being active in the community to help out anyone in need.
In her spare time, she loves to bake, babysit our nieces and nephews, hang out at the lake, tend our garden, take our pug, Walter, on walks and hang out with friends. Katie will be an amazing mom. She is constantly showing up for any and all events for our nieces and nephews, and our fridge is frequently decorated with their school photos and drawings they make for us. She will be an involved mother who will always put the wellbeing of our child first and will be their biggest cheerleader.
Our Home in Nebraska
We live in a 4 bedroom log cabin on lakefront property in Nebraska. Our home is located on just under an acre of land and has plenty of outdoor space where we love to entertain family and friends. We thoroughly enjoy spending time outdoors in our garden, out on the lake, walking our dog, Walter, and BBQing with loved ones. If we aren’t enjoying the great outdoors, we can be found either cooking together in the kitchen or taking on a home renovation project. We have already started renovations in the nursery, which is located on the 2nd floor next to our bedroom.
We both come from large, close-knit families that we see on a regular basis. Growing up our parents demonstrated that the gift of family is based on love, quality time, and acceptance. Our families are incredibly excited to welcome a new member to our family and begin creating memories with your child.
Katie is the oldest of four children, with one niece on her side of the family. Holiday traditions are an important part of our family and we are excited to share them with your child. Some of our favorite traditions include our pumpkin carving contest and Christmas cookie baking extravaganza. We also enjoy spending summers in Colorado at Katie’s family cabin, where she has been visiting since she was a child.
Lee is the youngest of five children with several nieces and nephews on his side of the family. Family get-togethers often revolve around BBQing and swimming at the lake. One of our favorite holiday traditions is watching our nieces and nephews partake in the annual Easter egg hunt. We often visit Lee’s parents in Florida at their vacation home and enjoy various water sports and sight-seeing while there.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and to raise them in a stable home where they are supported, accepted, and nurtured. We promise to provide them with an excellent education and to encourage them to pursue their interests and reach their goals. We promise to celebrate your child's culture/diversity, encourage them to explore their roots, and help them to be confident in who they are. We promise your child will grow up knowing they are fiercely loved by us, our family, and by you. We look forward to getting to know you and are open to letters, photos, and visits!

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
We enjoy spending time outdoors in our garden or on the lake, hanging out with family and friends, going to live sporting events, cooking/baking, traveling and just being together. While we are an active couple, we also enjoy having downtime and love to spend rainy days curled up on the couch with our dog, Walter, watching our favorite shows and movies.
Katie grew up and was raised Catholic, attending private school until she graduated high school. Lee grew up and was confirmed in the Lutheran church. We plan on having our children attend private school, but believe in allowing them to decide in which faith they would like to be confirmed. Our primary goal is to encourage our child to build a relationship with God and to live a life filled with faith.
Our Musical Interest
Whether we are cooking in the kitchen or doing yard work outside, we love to listen to all kinds of music. Some of our favorite genres include classic/pop-rock, country, pop, and instrumental music; however, if we can dance and sing along we will listen to it!
About Our Home
We recently moved into a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, lakefront log cabin that was built in the 1980s. Given that we enjoy spending time outdoors, we absolutely fell in love with this home and the outdoor space it provides. We enjoy having family and friends over for grilling, swimming, and fun-filled days on the lake. We also have always enjoyed home renovation projects, and are having fun putting our own personal touch to make this space our own.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us. We are looking forward to becoming first-time parents through the blessing of adoption. While we have not met, know that we both are praying for you and your child. We are delighted in the opportunity to get to know you, learn about your hopes for the future, and share this journey together.
