Adoption......a loving choice
Waiting Families
 Next family.....
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and consider adoption. We cannot imagine how difficult this decision is for you. We have so much respect for you as you explore adoption.

We met back in college, but were just friends until a few years after we graduated. Jen was living in Chicago in 2005 when Dan came to visit from Michigan and our friendship quickly turned into a serious relationship. Dan transferred law schools and moved from Detroit to Chicago less than a year later so we could be together. Two years later, we were married! We moved back to Michigan in 2011, where we were both raised, to be closer to our families and with hopes of starting our own family. After trying to have children and experiencing fertility problems, we decided that we wanted to adopt a child.

Dan is an attorney and Jen is a former teacher and currently a school psychologist. In August 2015, Jen will begin working as a university professor. We consider each other our best friend and love to spend time together. For fun, we both enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, walking, biking, and going to the beach. We travel as much as possible and have good friends in different parts of the country to visit. Dan is our home chef and has put his previous job as a restaurant cook to use at home! Jen spends time gardening and grows a lot of vegetables in the back yard. We also love to play with our dog, Maggie. She is part Beagle part Chihuahua (AKA, the Cheagle) and full of energy. Both of our families live close to us and we see them as often as possible. Between the pool at Jenís parentís house and the beach close to Danís parents, we have a lot of fun options when we hang out!

We are open to adopting a child of any racial or cultural background. Our families and friends are very supportive of us adopting a child of any race. Through community involvement, diverse education, travel and friendships, we will learn about each otherís cultures. Danís mother was adopted and we are very familiar with the joys and difficulties that come with adoption. With that knowledge, we believe that we can provide a very loving and supportive home for a child through adoption.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us. While we are having so much fun as a couple and dog parents, we are eager to welcome children into our family. If you would like to get to know us better, we would love to share and learn about you as well! Best wishes to you.
Dan & Jen
