From Us to You

First of all, thank you for taking the time to read about our family. We hope that you are able to learn a little bit about us and see how much more love we have to share. We cannot thank you enough for considering our family for your baby. Your child will be loved unconditionally and we cannot wait to join you on this journey.

Your bravery and strength need to be acknowledged for even considering adoption. We want to commend you and acknowledge how strong you really are. Your decision to think about others is so admirable and a way to help others. Adoption is a way to make the best choice for you, your child, and our family. We will always respect you and raise your child to the best of our ability.

We adopted our only daughter as a newborn, making this our second adoption journey. Adoption has forever changed our lives and we are so thankful it exists. Adopting our daughter has been the best highlight of our lives. Expanding our family is our next journey to highlight. Your child will have the best big sister!

We live in rural Wisconsin on 20 acres of countryside. Your child will grow up loving nature, living an adventurous lifestyle, and being outdoors every day. Keep reading our profile to read about our fun pets and our beautiful home!

Our family and friends are very important in our lives. We spend a lot of time nurturing these relationships. Your child will be welcomed with open arms as everyone will love your child, support them, and be a part of their lives.

Of utmost importance, your child will know that education is a top priority as we have fun along the way. We will love your child unconditionally, no matter what. We will teach your child to have a strong self-esteem, be kind, respectful, and how to love others. We look forward to meeting you, joining you on this wonderful and beautiful journey, and giving you a well-deserved hug. Remember, you are brave, courageous, admirable, and so very STRONG.

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We are firm believers that everything happens for a reason. We have struggled with infertility for almost ten years, but without that infertility, our lives wouldn’t have been blessed with Adalyn. We are adopting again because our family is ready to grow and share our love with another child. Having adopted Adalyn, we feel confident in adopting again and have absolutely no hesitation. We are forever thankful that adoption is such a beautiful thing and it is a good option for all involved.

About Chelsea

I cannot imagine my life without Chelsea. She is not only my wife, but my best friend as well. Her gorgeous eyes, along with her wonderful smile give me butterflies every time I see her. Chelsea’s compassion and love towards everyone amazes me more and more every day. She always seems to have the right answers and does not let a struggle get her down at all. With all of these traits, Chelsea fits right into her career as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She loves working on little craft projects, enjoys spending time outdoors, and gardening. Between her and Adalyn, they are always up to something like coloring, painting, or crafting. Chelsea’s loving, caring, patient and understanding demeanor, along with her ‘reach for the stars’ mentality are just some of the traits that make her the best mother. I, too, cannot wait to continue parenting with her.

About Trenton

This man is the love of my life. From day one, he has been my biggest supporter, pushes me to always better myself, makes me smile ALL the time, and has such a way of brightening everyone’s life. Trenton’s ability to listen, have patience, and communicate, plus have fun, are just some of the traits that make him an outstanding father. He is a construction engineer technician for a local firm. Managing road construction projects and people, designing roads, and performing test samples are just a few of his daily tasks at work. I love watching Trenton be a father and it has been one of the biggest highlights of our marriage. I thought that I loved him when we were married, but that love continues to grow every day. Trenton has a great work ethic, loves to “tinker” in the machine shed, build projects, and loves being outside. I cannot wait to bring another child into our family and continue to parent with him.

About Adalyn

We have so much to say about our sweet girl, Adalyn. She is four years old, adopted, and has the BEST belly laugh. Her belly laugh is frequent and one of a kind, but most of all, it is contagious. She is fearless, brave, talks much more maturely than her age, and has fun no matter what she is doing. She loves Barbies, playing dress up, anything rainbow or unicorns, and playing babies. Adalyn’s favorite foods are strawberries, raspberries, rainbow goldfish, macaroni and cheese, and chocolate. But really, she eats anything and everything. She is currently in dance class, swimming lessons, and soccer. She is determined, strong-willed, but yet has the sweetest and biggest heart. Adalyn often will get up from the dinner table and hug and kiss everyone who is sitting at the table. She is one of a kind, excited to be a big sister, and full of love!

Our Home

Our home is nestled on 20 acres in the country of rural, southern Wisconsin and has a small pond. Living in the country has fulfilled one of our dreams; Adalyn and her pet animals have plenty of space play and roam. The trails are great for a nice walk or a fun scavenger hunt. There is a large swing set and sand box, plus two goats and a few chickens. In our backyard, you will find us working in our garden, relaxing and enjoying time on our porch, or having a bonfire with family and friends. We are very fortunate to be located in one of the best school districts in the area and are just a few miles from the local elementary school, parks, and town.

Our Lifestyle

Our lifestyle could be described using words like adventurous, outdoor-loving, fun, compassionate, educational and definitely living with a purpose. Our day to day life consists of making sure that each of us is well taken care of, is having fun, and learning something new. Anyone who knows our family always states how fun, imaginative, creative, and how outdoorsy Adalyn is. We have surrounded her with those values and model them every day. We both work throughout the week, which allows us to do fun things on the weekends, take time off, go on vacations, and have hobbies like snowmobiling and boating. We really enjoy the life that we have created and Adalyn’s constant laughter and smiles are evidence of it.

Our Fun, Furry and Feathered Friends

One dog, one fish, three chickens and two goats make up our family of pets. Our dog is a three year old red fox Labrador, Remi. She has a lot of energy, is very gentle with kids of all ages, and acts like a human. The fish is known as Frosty since Adalyn received it during the winter months. Our chickens’ names are Pickles, Strawberry and Mac n Cheese. I bet you can guess who named them! They are egg layers, love veggies, and free ranging on our land. Our miniature goats’ names are Bubbles and Ralphie, and are they cute!

Our Families

Our family and friends are a huge part of our life. Chelsea’s parents live on the family farm and have been married for 33 years. Trenton’s parents live on a private lake, just five miles from Chelsea’s parents, and have been married 40 years. Chelsea has one brother, who lives ten miles away. He is getting married in August and has the sweetest son, Hudson. Hudson is one year older than Adalyn and they are the best of friends, always giggling, Facetiming, playing outside, and spending lots of time together. Trenton has one sister, who lives near Chicago, and is married. Trenton’s sister has three sons, Cavan, Ashton and Paxton who just adore their cousin, Adalyn. Though the boys are older, they play with Adalyn, constantly hug her, and love being outdoors. Both Trenton and Chelsea’s families spend time together on weekends and have the same hobbies of snowmobiling and boating. We have no idea what we would do without our family. Both of our families are very involved in everything we do, whether it is family vacations, day trips to spend the day at our house, attending fun events, dinner dates, sporting events or just hanging out for the weekend. Our families are our role models, people that we can always count on, and are so eager to welcome a new addition and watch Adalyn be a big sister!

We feel very fortunate to call our close group of friends our family. It is not uncommon for us to see a family of friends or get together as a group a few times a month. We are so close to our group of friends that they often help with Adalyn and our pets when our family is not able to. You could find us doing many outdoor activities with our friends, like having bonfires, going ice fishing, hiking, boating, to the beach, and more. We could go on and on about our friends, but instead, would love for you to look at the pictures and see how much they play a huge part in our lives.

Adoption In Our Lives

Adoption has changed our lives and really continues to every day. The whole process is an absolute blessing. Adalyn is a blessing and we anxiously wait to do it again. Adoption is a topic that we often talk about with our families and friends to normalize the conversation, debunk myths, and speak of how thankful we are for it. It has been fun to watch our family and friends support us, give Adalyn so much love, and cheer us on as we begin our second adoption journey.

How A Child will Enrich Our Lives

A child will enrich our lives in ways unexplainable. We are beyond excited to continue this journey and add to our family. A child will grow our love, our relationship as a family, and will have a best friend as a sister. We have no doubt that Adalyn will embrace sibling-hood as we love watching her with our friends’ infants.

Family Traditions

Our traditions consist of celebrating Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas with our families. For Easter and Christmas, we make sure that we are at our home the night before so the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus can stop by. Typically, each holiday is split between Trenton and Chelsea’s families. For Christmas, Adalyn writes Santa Claus a letter, Elf on the Shelf visits for a month or more, we bake homemade cookies and frost them, Adalyn creates a plate of food for Santa and his reindeer, and then we read Christmas books before bed. Seeing the excitement in Adalyn’s eyes brings us so much joy. Other traditions consist of being in Northern Wisconsin for a week over New Year’s with our family, spending an additional two to three weekends in Northern Wisconsin in January and February to snowmobile, and then taking at least one to two family vacations every year.

Our Vacations

Our vacations consist of going to Northern Wisconsin 3 to 5 times a year, where we snowmobile, play in the snow, and spend time with our families. We try to take at least one other vacation a year to explore a new destination. We take weekend trips to different places with both sides of our families, even if it is just meeting at a waterpark. Traveling is something we intend to do more as the pandemic fades or hopefully ends. As for leisure time, you can find us enjoying the outdoors, boating, snowmobiling, walking the trails on our property, gardening, having a bonfire, or relaxing on our deck. Most of our leisure time is spent outside and together as a family.

Education

Education is a priority of ours and one that we work to instill in Adalyn and will continue to do so with another child. The way that a child learns is an amazing thing to watch, encourage, and support. Education does not necessarily mean school work, but also playing outside and learning about nature. There are so many opportunities and things that a child and adult can learn alongside one another. Education will be a priority as your child grows and will be encouraged into adulthood.

Our Relationship with Adalyn's Birth Mom

Our relationship with Adalyn’s birth mother was intended to be open, which consisted of meeting a couple times a year, sharing photos and communicating through email. Unfortunately, we attempted to maintain this relationship but it was not the right time for Adalyn’s birth mother. We respect this decision of hers and will be open to initiate that relationship whenever she is ready. We understand that life has ups and downs and do not pass judgement on her decisions.

Our Thoughts Regarding You

Our thoughts would be described in words like brave, courageous, strong, thoughtful, mature, loving, and awesome. Placing a baby for adoption is not an easy decision and we will never take that away from you. No matter the situation, a birth mother is strong in more ways than she likely gives herself credit for. We continue to be in awe of all birth mothers and will always respect them.

Our Promise to You

Our number one promise to you is to always love your child. We will provide the child with the best life that we can, while focusing on our values. We promise you that our families and friends will love, support, and cheer on your child. We will encourage education as a priority and work to instill a good work ethic. Another priority will be to teach them manners, respect, diversity, and how to be kind to everyone.
