Welcome! 

we're tom & andrea

We already respect you so much for the love, selflessness, and courage you have shown in considering adoption. We can only imagine that deciding on a home for your child is an incredibly difficult decision to make.

Our heart for adoption includes you. We hope that expanding our family means not only welcoming a child into our family, but also getting to know the people who are an important part of this child’s story.

We created this page to give you a glimpse of our lives. If you’re open to it, we look forward to getting to know you as well.

with love, 

Tom + Andrea

a bit about

  Andrea

I’m looking forward to being a mother and having a little one to love and care for. I am mostly excited to learn about the unique things that he or she becomes interested in! Whoever they are, whatever they love, I’m looking forward to learning about all of it.

a bit about

    Tom

I’m excited to get to know our child through every stage and connect with them in the ways they feel most loved. Whether it’s playing airplanes and astronauts, tea party princess dress up, or just talking about their interests. I’m looking forward to it all!

our family values...

laughter

We laugh often and look for fun in everything we do! We can’t wait to be goofy with our child and make them belly-laugh with silly sounds, tickles, and jokes.

curiosity

We are learners at heart! We’re curious about the world around us and want to learn how things work. We also try to learn about others. We hope to foster that child-like curiosity every person is born with.

each other

We seek to put one another first and live with each other in an understanding way. We hope to teach our child to value family. As parents, we will do everything we can to build healthy, trustworthy, and joyful family relationships.

our home & community

Take a peek inside our home

Our home is a peaceful place both indoors and out. We take pride in creating a calm, inviting space for ourselves and family and friends. We look forward to welcoming a child into our home and life! We live in a family-oriented neighborhood just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Good schools, beautiful parks, walking trails, and a wonderful library branch are all within walking distance. Our home has four big bedrooms and lots of room to play. Our favorite places in our house are the sunroom, where we enjoy slow Saturday morning coffees, and our re-finished attic, where we enjoy watching movies and playing board games. 

Our Adventures

We love to go exploring and to experience different places, history, and cultures. Because our family and friends are scattered throughout the U.S., we regularly visit other parts of the country. Some of our favorite places include New England, Michigan, and Pittsburgh. Road trips are our favorite way to travel, but we also want to explore other countries in the future! We look forward to seeing the world through our child’s eyes and teaching them about different people and places, not only in books but up close!

We're looking forward to
being parents alongside each other

Written by Andrea: Tom is going to be an amazing father. He’s been perfecting his animal noises, piggy back rides, and dad jokes for a while now. He’s going to be a loving, attentive, and fun dad to our kiddos.

Written by Tom: I cannot wait to see Andrea as a mom. Her loving, caring, and encouraging nature would make your child feel loved and cared for beyond measure!
