We are grateful to you for taking the time to get to know a little about us and our desire to begin a family through adoption. We would like to express our appreciation and admire your strength and courage as you consider this decision and ultimate act of love. After trying unsuccessfully to start a family on our own, we are hopeful adoption will allow us to grow our family and provide a warm, loving, and nurturing environment to a child. Our extended families are also excited to see our family grow through adoption.
We met shortly after college and quickly fell head over heels for one another. We have been together for 17 years; married for the last 11. We are very easy going and have a silly sense of humor. Wes is an archaeologist by profession and Fiona is a medical laboratory scientist. We live in a small, quiet suburb in Wisconsin with our two dogs (Brutus and Juno), our two cats (Augustus and Ceres), and our four backyard chickens (The Golden Girls). We are somewhat adventurous and enjoy doing things at spur of the moment. When we are not working, activities we enjoy together include: hiking, biking, kayaking, walking the dogs, camping (just about anything outdoors), traveling, cooking together, gardening, working out, and spending time with family and friends. Wes also enjoys practicing traditional Shotokan karate in his spare time. Fiona enjoys knitting and baking in her spare time and makes some awesome desserts.
We promise to provide a warm, safe and loving environment for your child to develop and grow, where they will feel loved unconditionally. We promise to provide diverse opportunities and experiences and support them as they cultivate their own interests and passions. We are also committed to sharing your child’s adoption story with them as they grow and that they understand your decision was made out of love. We also look forward to sharing our story and family with you and are willing to consider as open a relationship as you find comfortable or desirable.
We thank you again for taking the time to get to know a little about us and wish you all the best on this journey.
