We look forward to raising a child and seeing the world through his/her eyes. We want to provide a loving home filled with kindness, compassion, laughter, and love.

We look forward to taking a family vacation every year. Our vacations usually involve some fun in the sun and water and something educational. Going to museums, sporting events, musicals/plays are all on our list of activities to do as a family. We both love animals and going to zoos, so that would be something exciting for us to do as a family. We also look forward to everyday activities like playing a board game, going to the park, playing in the backyard, riding bikes, and reading a book each night before bed.

A few fun facts about each of us:
We met on Match.com and we were “matched” because we both love hockey, especially the Red Wings. Lindsay is an MSU fan and Daniel is a U of M fan. Daniel is very handy around the house and has started quite the collection of power tools. Lindsay is crafty and organized, coming up with home improvement ideas.

One thing we would like the birth family to know about us/why we would be good parents:
We want the birth family to know that their child will be surrounded by unconditional love and support, not only from us, but also our family and friends. We will provide a warm home that focuses on kindness, education, values, laughter, and compassion. We promise to guide and help your child grow into the person they are destined to become. You are a significant part of your child’s life and story, that we will make sure is cherished throughout their life.
