From Us to You

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read our profile to get to know us!

Adding a child to our family will be the biggest blessing we could ask for in our future. We promise you that your child would be loved immensely by us, our family, and our friends. We are extremely thankful to have such a large, supportive, and loving family that will be our strong support system. We are fortunate to be able to have Michaela work part-time, so that she can stay home with your child more often, and on the days that she works, Michaela’s family will be babysitting. We promise to cherish all the milestones in their life and are more than happy to share those milestones with you. We want you to be able to choose the type of relationship that we have as a family. We understand that your wishes may change as the years go on and we are more than happy to be flexible over the years. We promise to be open and honest to your child about their adoption story. No matter what type of relationship you choose, they will know how much you love and care for them, and how much respect and love we as adoptive parents have towards you.

We both have wanted to be parents for as long as we can remember, but it wasn’t safe for Michaela to carry a child, nor did we want to pass down a genetic disease to a child by having a surrogate. As a senior in high school in 2012, Michaela received an emergency liver transplant. It turned out she had Wilson’s disease since she was born, but was unaware until the damage was too far. Michaela thought she had the flu, but a few days later her parents took Michaela to their local ER, and they sent her to a Children’s Hospital by ambulance. Hours after arriving at the hospital, Michaela was told she needed a liver transplant and only had 3 days to live without one. Thanks to a very special donor, Michaela was given the gift of life.

We can’t begin to understand your feelings at this time, but we truly admire you and the brave decision you’re making. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers. We can assure you that your child will be well cared for, and loved every single day unconditionally. Not a day will go by without your child knowing they are extremely loved, and we are beyond grateful for them. We will strive to give your child the best childhood, and make it as fun and adventurous as possible. We will provide everything we can to set your child up for the best possible future. As parents, we will be their coaches during the difficult times, and their biggest cheerleaders during their best times. We will teach them not to give up on their dreams, and that the sky is their limit. No matter where or what they want their future to be, we will be very supportive, helpful, and understanding. We are certain that the love we will have for your child will be just as powerful as any biological relationship. We are honored to even be considered, and in the end, we know you will make the best decision for you and your child.

With love,
Logan and Michaela

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We are very blessed and love our life together but we can’t help but want the missing piece, a family of our own. We want to cherish, love, and support a child and create a family. We are certain that the love we will have for your child is just as powerful as any biological relationship could be.

Michaela received a liver transplant in 2012 (at 17 years old) because she had Wilson’s disease. Although we would love, and could care for a child with health issues, we didn’t want to knowingly pass down Wilson’s.  Together we decided that adoption was the way we wanted to become parents because it wasn’t a safe option for Michaela to carry a child, nor did we want to pass down a genetic disease by having a surrogate carry our child.

About Michaela, by Logan

Michaela is one of the kindest-hearted women you will meet. She is so thoughtful and can often be found shopping online to buy small gifts for other people, instead of herself. Making others happy is what she loves to do. She is great with kids! When she was younger, she babysat all the time and was a summer nanny for many years for a family with 3 children. She loved planning fun activities for the kids to do every day of the week. Thanks to her, our home is warmly and beautifully decorated. She is what makes our house feel like home. Michaela also enjoys crafting, it is her favorite thing to do. So much so that I made a special room in the house just for her enormous crafting supply collection. If you do not find her in her craft room tinkering around, you will probably find her outside with her goats. She loves to watch them run around and give them treats. Around the house, Michaela is very organized. Everything has its place. Thanks to her I come home to a well-kept house every night. Michaela is a terrific wife and will make a great mother to our child.

About Logan, by Michaela

Logan is the hardest working man I know. For 9 months, he spent every night after work building our house for us! He is a plumber and works in a small town plumbing shop. Logan will be the dad who comes home after work and plays with your child no matter how tired he is. Whether it’s playing games, riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline, or whatever their imagination comes up with. Logan is an active outdoorsman. He can’t wait to have a little sidekick to take along on all his adventures. Logan has a good sense of humor and is smart, kind, funny, helpful, and supportive. Logan can talk to anyone. We always joke that he could talk to a tree and could get the tree to talk back. I fell in love with Logan 8 years ago, and can’t wait to become a parent with him.

Lifestyle

Logan works full-time as a plumber and Michaela works part-time as a scheduling coordinator at the local hospital. In our free time, we spend a lot of it with our family whether it’s family dinner night, attending our niece and nephews’ sporting and school events, supporting our niece at her rodeo events, and many more outdoor activities depending on the Wisconsin seasons. We also enjoy spending our time with all of our friends. We have a lot of cookouts and get together with our friends and their children. They can’t wait to have another child join the group.

As much as we love spending our free time with our family and friends, we also enjoy nights home alone as a family snuggled up on the couch watching a movie, going on random outdoor adventures, or playing games together. We love to have fun! We can’t wait to have a little blessing join us on our adventures and family nights at home.

Our Pets

We have a lot of pets and love them all a lot!

  • Copper is a 4-year-old Bichon/Yorkie mix and a hyper snuggle bug. He loves going on walks, saying “hi” to the neighbors, and is super excited to greet anyone that comes over.
  • Kayser is our 1-year-old Shih Tzu/Poodle mix and is very shy and reserved. He loves playing outside with Copper, waking mom and dad up in the middle of the night to play, and loves hiding when anyone comes over so that they can’t see him.

We also have 4 goats!

  • JD is a 2-year-old Nigerian Dwarf. He is the only boy in the herd (poor fella handles it really well). JD has a very big belly full of animal crackers! He loves to run and play, but really loves to sunbathe.
  • Avery is a 2-year-old Nigerian Dwarf. She is really skittish around new people, but really loves her mom. She thinks of herself as the herd queen. She can be bossy!
  • Addy is a 1-year-old Nigerian Dwarf and truly loves people more than she loves other goats. As soon as you sit down, Addy jumps on your lap instantly!
  • Izzy is less than a year old and is a mini Nubian, so she has floppy ears. She loves to run, play, and jump on anything she can find. Addy and Izzy are best friends!

Lastly, we have our betta fish, Finley. We enjoy watching him swim around. He thinks he is best friends with the flamingo decoration in his bowl.

Your child will grow up learning how to appreciate and love animals.

Home & Neighborhood

We live in a subdivision on the outskirts of a small town in southwest Wisconsin. It’s a quiet subdivision on a dead-end street. Logan built our home from the ground up (with a little help from our friends and family) in 2021. Logan is excited to build a fun playground for our family to enjoy together. All of the children in the neighborhood will be so excited to come over! Our backyard is fenced in which makes a great play area for our dogs and future children.

There is a separate fence for the goats and their house. When we are sitting at our kitchen table we watch the goats running around head-butting, and jumping around on their playground. The goats love when they get to come into the backyard and lay by the patio door so they can watch us inside.

Inside our home, a nursery is ready and awaiting a little blessing. We are anxious to make the final personal touches.

Racial & Cultural Diversity

We would love to welcome diversity into our family. Thanks to a man named CL, Michaela was given a second chance at life when she received his donated liver. CL’s family comes from a very different background and culture than us, but CL’s family has accepted her as one of their own and treats Michaela as if she was part of their family from the very beginning.

We can promise you that your child will feel only love from any of our family or friends if they are of a different race than us. In fact, it made our friends and family so happy when we told them we are open to welcoming a child from any race. We have done research on the struggles that could come up and will continue to do more research to be as knowledgeable as we can so we are prepared to support your child. We will have the best support system standing beside us that will always be there for your child, no matter what.

Our community is small, so everybody knows everybody. We feel that this is an advantage because it is such a supportive community. There has been a notable increase in diversity in our small community and we see it as a positive change. We are willing to talk, listen, and learn. We know that each individual is unique, and will teach your child how to embrace differences. Family isn’t made from blood, it’s made from love.

Our Families & Friends

We are very close to Michaela’s family. Michaela’s mom’s name is Wendy, and her dad’s name is Michael. They live 10 minutes from our house. Growing up, Michaela’s mom didn’t miss a single school or sports event. Michael and Wendy have always been the parents, and now grandparents, that put their children first. Michaela has one sister named Ashley, she is 10 years older. Her husband’s name is Rylee and they have 2 kids named Henesee (9), and Kyee (5). We are extremely blessed that Michaela’s mom, sister, and grandma (who is a certified babysitter) will be watching your child on days that Michaela works so we will know your little one is being well cared for and loved.

Logan’s family is always there for each other when needed. Logan’s mom’s name is Crystal, and Logan’s stepfather’s name is Larry. When Logan was 7, he was adopted by his mom’s previous husband, Bruce. Logan’s older sister is named Brandi. She is married to Robert with 2 kids, Trinity (11) and Bentley (8). Logan’s youngest sister is named Tara. She lives with Crystal now, but is looking to buy her own home.

We have the most amazing group of friends. We had them over for a cookout to tell them that we are adopting and they were all so happy, and supportive! We are truly blessed with the people we have in our lives and are so thankful for them all.

Family Traditions

Our family traditions are very special to us. Every year on Christmas Eve, Michaela’s immediate family gets together for lunch, to spend quality time together, and exchange gifts. Michaela’s grandpa always brought everyone lottery tickets and since he passed, we started a new tradition of taking lottery tickets down to the cemetery to scratch them off with him. On Christmas Day, we attend both of our large family gatherings. We start by going to Michaela’s great aunt’s house for lunch and then go to Logan’s grandma’s house for dinner. Christmas is our favorite holiday! We are both so excited to decorate the tree together as a family, bake cookies for Santa, watch Christmas movies in our matching Christmas pajamas, make gingerbread houses, and whatever else your child will enjoy.

Easter is another holiday that we get together with our families. This year, we went to Michaela’s parents’ house, where they gave us an Easter basket for our future child filled with baby clothes and toys!

On the Fourth of July, we always go to the big parade in our small town and spend the rest of the day with family and friends and end the day watching fireworks.

As for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we always host a cookout with family to celebrate our love and appreciation for our parents.

And lastly, our Thanksgiving tradition is to go to Logan’s grandma’s house for lunch, and then to Michaela’s family for dinner. We are always full of food and love and look forward to this family tradition each year.

We love celebrating holidays with our family and can’t wait to start new traditions as a growing family!
