Hello & Thank You

Thank you so much for taking time to learn about us through our profile. We admire your strength and have tremendous respect and compassion for you making this difficult and selfless decision. We hope that you find comfort through our pictures and story.

We are Mike and Lara, and we have been married for 3 years, but we have been together for 11 years. We met each other in high school and then started dating at our community college. We continued to date long distance as we went to different schools to earn our degrees. Once we graduated, we got engaged on the same spot where we first ice fished together and had a beautiful outdoor wedding.  Having children was never a question in our minds, so after a year of marriage, we tried to have a family; however, we found that fertility treatments would be our only chance at conceiving. After several treatments, we found that God has called us to the journey and miracle of adoption.  We have a one year old Weimaraner named Nigel who has added a lot of joy to our lives, and we are so excited to expand our family through adoption.

We know you desire the very best for your child, and we want you to know that we will give your child unconditional love and a beautiful life.  We will dedicate our lives to providing your child with love, support, and affection. We commit to maintaining a caring, encouraging, and safe environment where we will raise your child with the strong values and qualities we strive to show every day along with the strength and courage you’ve shown through this decision.

Most of all, we want you to know that we will celebrate and cherish your child for the amazing miracle they are. We will raise your child to understand their amazing qualities and identity and to cherish them. We are so excited to open our home and hearts to your child and to teach them the sacrifice and strength you made in this selfless choice. We thank you for getting to know us and considering us in raising your child.  

God bless,

Mike & Lara
