Dear Friend,

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. It is very difficult to describe who we are in just a few words and pictures, but we hope you are able to gain some insight into our family. We love being parents and are excited for a new addition. We are looking forward to sleepless nights and flipping coins over who gets to change the next diaper!

Sarah was raised in northern Wyoming and has two older siblings. She moved to Cheyenne in 2001 to further her education in the nursing field. Sarah is currently working as a Clinical Nurse Manager on a Women's and Children's Unit at the local hospital.

Brad was born and raised in Cheyenne and has one younger brother.  He attended the local community college and is a sales representative for a tool company.  He graduated from Leadership Cheyenne and enjoys being involved in the local community.

We are an ordinary couple who still holds hands, goes out on dates, and Brad still opens doors for Sarah. We were married in 2005 and immediately wanted to start a family. We found out quickly that life doesn't always go as planned. Although we struggled for years with infertility it has been our blessing in disguise. It has taught us so much about each other, and how to weather a storm as a team.  We have a marriage with a solid foundation and an amazing friendship that we treasure more than anything.

In 2013 our dreams came true when we adopted our beautiful daughter Shelby. From the minute we saw her it was love at first sight. She has brought so much happiness and noise into our lives. In 2015 we were blessed again with our son Milo. He is our wild child who keeps us on our toes! He is all boy and loves to run and be wild. We cherish their hugs and kisses and smile at the toys that we are constantly tripping over! We love to ride bikes together, play at the park, and camp in the backyard. Milo and Shelby have a strong bond and they are both “super excited” to have another sibling. We are also excited for Shelby and Milo to have another sibling to share secrets, make childhood memories, and to laugh as they make us chase them in opposite directions! 

Over the years we have built relationships with our children’s birth mothers and some extended family. We always knew that we wanted open adoptions and getting to know these women has proven the importance of open adoption and the value of these relationships. We not only share letters and pictures but we have gotten together for play dates at the library. We love that our children talk about their birth mothers with love and have no problem letting people know whose tummy they came out of!

We believe in dinner time as a family and stories before bed. We know that kisses on scraped knees and elbows really do make it feel better, and double-checking closets and under the bed are essential for a good night's sleep.

The selfless act of entrusting your child with another couple is an amazing and gracious gift that we will always be thankful for. We are excited for another open adoption where our children are able to be loved big and loved well. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to get to know us and consider us to raise your child in a home filled with love and laughter.

With Love,
Brad and Sarah

 

We would like to start with letting you know how brave and strong you are. We feel that we already have a connection to you through our mutual belief in adoption. It is our hope that you will read our story and feel that we are the One’s you choose to raise your baby.

After nearly 20 years together and a multitude of shared life experiences, we are excited to welcome a child into our lives through adoption. We have always considered adoption and have thoughtfully chosen it as the way we want to bring a child into our family, not because we cannot have our own biological children but because we feel strongly that we can provide a loving home and life for a child. It would be nearly impossible for us to have the confidence to raise a child without the support of our family and friends. We are incredibly fortunate to have their support.

We grew up in the same small town. Our Story begins when our lives crossed paths sooner than either of us expected. It was 1998, when we went to our high school homecoming dance. Leading up to the dance, we started spending more time together and getting to know one another, including our first date playing mini golf. Fast-forward almost 2 years, our relationship had a first true test with distance. Despite the miles between us, we continued to grow closer as a couple. We were fortunate enough to have great role models who helped to shape our relationship and prepare us for a lifetime together. We were married in May 2004, living in Colorado for a short time before moving to Wyoming in 2005. Our careers are focused on helping others. Brian is a firefighter and has worked his way up to the role of Battalion Chief. Laura works in real estate, helping people find their forever home.

We enjoy spending time with each other, family and friends. We love the seasons and all of the activities that each one brings. Summer for us includes mountain biking, hiking, floating the river, exploring 2-tracks in our Jeep, camping and backpacking. Winter brings both downhill and cross country skiing. Winters are often long, so we try to break them up by taking warm destination vacations, so surfing and snorkeling are categorized in our winter activities as well! Travel to other adventurous locations have included Machu Picchu in Peru and Costa Rica. We plan on continuing to explore the great outdoors and travel with our new family.

Our family has other children who will be cousins to our child and built in friends for life. We may be biased, but our parents have proven that they are the best grandparents. Family gatherings include weddings, birthday celebrations and fun family vacations. Friends are also an important part of our lives. We refer to our close friends as “Framily”. Time spent with friends include dinners, game nights and a variety of events including sports, music and festivals offered in the area.

We believe that making the decision to put a child up for adoption is an extremely loving and brave act, and we want you to have the peace of mind that we will do everything we can to provide a lifetime of wonderful experiences for your child.

Thank you for considering us for this amazing experience and life-changing gift!

Dear Birthparent(s),

Thank you for taking the time to read our online profile.  There are no words that can describe how thankful we are that you chose life for your child in this world in which there are many other options available to you.  We cannot imagine what you have gone through in order to make one of the most important decisions of your life.  

Our names are Jared and Ashlie.  We have been married for just over nine years, but have been together for fourteen years.  While we were dating, we both knew that we were meant to be parents.  After discovering that we were infertile, our desire to be parents did not waiver.  We thank you for considering us in giving the gift of your child.

Jared works for the school district as a mailroom technician.  Ashlie is a Registered Nurse and she is an assistant director of nursing at a local facility.  Ashlie is in the last semester of her Master’s program to obtain her nurse practitioner.  Both of us are highly involved in our church.  Jared plays guitar and leads song service on the worship team while Ashlie is the leader of Sunday school for children ages 3-11.  When we are not at church, we enjoy watching and attending sporting events such as the Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies.  Ashlie enjoys running as a past time and participating in runs around the area.

In 2009, we built a new house on 5 acres of land.  It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  From our front porch we can view the Rocky Mountains and enjoy the quiet being in the county can provide.  The land was necessary so our four dogs could be active.  We have a lemon beagle named Bailey, a black lab named Kali, a yellow lab named Cheerio, and a chocolate lab named Chauncey.  The land will also be useful for building a playground for our children.

In March of 2013 we adopted our first son Caleb Michael.  No words can describe the joy he has brought to our lives. Caleb was born with Down syndrome but one would never know as he is perfect in every way.  He was the first grandchild on both sides of the family and is loved by all.  Caleb’s smile and laugh will light up the entire room and warm your heart.  In May of 2015 we were blessed with our second son Landon James. Landon was also born with Down syndrome like his brother.  His personality is as strong as he is. He may be small, but he is mighty.  As a family, we frequent sporting events as well as the Denver Zoo, Denver Aquarium, and Denver Museum of Natural Art as well as many other events in the area.  Spending time together is a priority for us.  We feel that it is the perfect time to expand our family of four and welcome another child into our home and hearts.    

We feel as though instilling our children with honesty, forgiveness, and God’s word are essential to their upbringing.  Our children will be raised in church and we desire to instill Christian values.  Both of us plan to spend as much time as possible with our children and show them all of our love.  We promise that if we are selected by you, we will always give all that we have to your child.  Thank you for blessing us with this opportunity.

God Bless,

Jared and Ashlie   

Dear Birthparent(s) -

Thank you for reading this. We can't imagine what you must be going through right now but know we have complete respect for you and your decision.  Also, we want you to know that we will give your child the best life we can provide and will love them completely (with lots of hugs & kisses).

Currently, we are a family of 3 - plus 2 dogs (retriever Sophie and spaniel Sammy) and a ball of fur cat (Anakin). However, we want to expand.  Jen & Mike met 8+ years ago and soon after marrying Jen became pregnant and Nathan came along. Nathan has been an amazing addition and being part of him growing up made us realize we weren't done growing yet. Although we have tried for several years to have another child it has not worked out. We have always had adoption in our minds (even pre-Nathan) and it was easy to decide to expand our family through adoption. We have always thought adoption was a beautiful choice and believe this is the right path for us.

Here is a little information about us:

Jen grew up in Wyoming, went to college in Minnesota, and worked in Pennsylvania after graduation.  Mike grew up in Pennsylvania and went to college there but traveled a lot with the military (he is still in the Marine Corps reserves) and served twice in Iraq and once in Yemen.  We share a love for travel and both have done a lot of traveling over the years –including:  New Zealand, European backpacking, Peru, Morocco, India, Indonesia, and Iceland.   We have slowed down the traveling with Nathan but have still managed to take him on a few trips so far and we have many family trips planned for the future such as: Disneyland, Alaska, Ireland/Scotland, and Africa.  Mike works for the state in the justice system and Jen works remotely from home for a company involving medical research (she is a biostatistician).  

We typically have a relaxed work week with a lot of time to spend with Nathan.  He goes to pre-K (he is 4) during the day but is very close by and so we often pop in to say hi.  In warmer weather, we often bicycle around town to the library or farmer’s market.  We live in a lovely home across from a park so we often go there as well.  Nathan is just getting old enough to start some scheduled activities and we are trying roller skating with our eye on swim lessons soon.   However, we also feel it’s really important for him to just enjoy being a kid so we don’t schedule much!  

Other family activities we love to do on a regular basis are camping, hiking, cooking (favorites are pizza, Thai/Indian curries) & baking (Nathan & Mike’s favorite are chocolate chip cookies), legos, games/puzzles, movie nights, visiting family nearby, and having friends over.  We also love to read and have 6+ large bookcases.  The pets are also part of our daily interactions and Nathan proudly helps feed them daily.  Our goals for raising Nathan have been to have him be kind, compassionate, have fun, and feel safe and loved at all times.

Hopefully this gives you an idea of our values and interests as a family.  It’s important to note we would love to share pictures, emails and funny stories in the years ahead (if you want). We are all very excited about expanding our family – Nathan can’t wait to be a big brother!

Best wishes and sending good thoughts to you.

Mike, Jen, & Nathan

Hello!

We are Matthew, Kimberly, and Henry. Thank you for taking the time to start to get to know us! We are excited to get to know you too.

We were blessed to have Henry join our family just after he was born in October of 2014. After a lot of thought and prayer, we have decided to adopt again. We don’t believe love divides; we think it multiplies. We are so grateful to you for the opportunity to be considered for adoption, and we admire you for your bravery in making this decision.

Our story started in college. We dated for five years before marriage and will celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary this July. We are unable to conceive children, but feel strongly that God has blessed our lives through adoption. We are so thankful for our little blessing.

Henry will be the best big brother ever! Henry always loves to lend a helping hand! He absolutely loves to play games and has gotten really good at inventing them. He is a big sweetie and is always on the lookout for new friends to play with.

We want to give our children all the tools they need for success. To help them succeed, we will teach them how to properly treat others as well as instill them with the values that are important to us, such as hard work, responsibility, honesty, and being trustworthy. We will teach them these lessons by setting examples and using the Bible as a guideline.

We are both fortunate to have great careers doing what we love. Kimberly is a science teacher for an online high school and works from home. She loves being able to make personal connections with students while having the opportunity to make a difference in their lives. We love that our children will be raised in our home as Kimberly’s job allows her the flexibility to shape her day around their needs. Matthew is a mine inspector for the state. Matthew works with companies to permit activities at mines. He basically helps the companies ensure that the mine looks as good after mining activity as it did before.

We live in a small town in Wyoming in a 4 bedroom house on a big lot. We love our neighborhood! It is nice and quiet, and is within walking distance of a great park. We love being able to be part of this community. We are lucky to be members of an amazing Christian church. We look forward to seeing our children grow up learning about the importance of God, family, and community.

Our town is surrounded by many great outdoor attractions, from deserts to lakes to mountains. We feel fortunate to live here, and we get to spend a lot of time exploring as we do activities such as hiking and fishing. At night we love to cook together, play Henry’s newly invented games, going on family walks, and reading stories. We have two Havanese dogs, Huckleberry and Sawyer; this is a small breed known for its antics and patience, and they give us lots of entertainment. Henry adores them and is always following them around the house and saying “Who’s a good boy!”

Thank you again for taking the time to start to get to know us! We can’t imagine the decision that you are facing, but we would like to thank you for considering adoption and for considering us. We know that God is guiding us to the child we are meant be with, and we are anxiously awaiting our miracle.

Sincerely,

Matthew, Kimberly, and Henry

Hello! Thank you so much for not only taking the time to learn about us but also considering us as you make the difficult decision as to who will parent your child. We hope that you will be able to see the love we have for each other, our families, and our future child. We are beyond excited to become parents and welcome a child into our home and family.

Since becoming married, we always knew that someday we would like to adopt, even if we had children of our own. After trying unsuccessfully to get pregnant for several years, we decided to start the adoption process rather than pursue fertility treatment. We know in our hearts that God has called us to adopt, and we cannot wait to meet the child he has chosen for us.

We want you to know how much love and respect we have for you already. We cannot imagine what a difficult decision this is for you, and we pray for you daily as you journey through this process. We know you want what is best for your child, and we pray that you will find us to be all that you hope for your child.

Mike was born in North Dakota, and Stephanie in Michigan. We met nine years ago, while in college at Black Hills State University. We started dating soon after meeting and knew early on that we would end up together. After 6 months, Mike proposed, and we were married on July 18, 2009. Family is extremely important to us and we cannot wait to add a child to ours. We are both educators and are passionate about teaching children about all aspects of life.

Steph about Mike: Mike is the love of my life and the most beautiful person I know, both inside and out. Mike is adventurous and loves being outdoors. He is incredibly devoted to his family, friends, and faith making these the foundation of all his relationships. I know he will be an excellent father.

Mike about Steph: Steph has a fun, imaginative, and loving personality. She will be a wonderful mom as kids are naturally drawn to her. She loves baking, being creative, bonfires, camping, and playing board games. Steph is strong, kind, and loyal and is never afraid to try new things.

We have two amazing pets. Boots is our eight year old, mischievous cat who loves to take naps with Steph. Scout is our one-year-old yellow lab who loves to play fetch and cuddle.

We would be thrilled to welcome a child of any race or gender into our lives. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful area and to be a part of a loving church family. We have a wonderful community of friends, with small children, and families who are very excited to welcome the child God has for us into their lives.

More than anything, you need to know that we will love your child unconditionally and will devote our lives to providing them with all the love, security, and joy we can offer. We want your child to always know where he or she came from and the integral part you

have in their life. We plan to raise our child with a love and appreciation for you and the sacrifice you are making for them. This child will be loved beyond measure, and will know the love you have for them. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us. We will be praying for you.

With Love,

Mike & Stephanie

Hello,

Thanks for looking at our profile! Nate and I are grateful for your time and consideration.  We wish you the best in this life, and this particular point in time.

I guess we'll tell you a little about ourselves.  We live out in the country on our small place, next to Nate's parents.  It's pretty much a simple hobby farm life. We have horses, chickens, rabbits, dogs, and a cat to look after.  I must say, they are fun and bring lots of joy.  I also try my hand at gardening (although I need a lot of help, it’s still rewarding and fun).  Nate works hard, and spends his free time running tractors, enhancing our vehicles, and helping others.  We love spending time together working on our place, visiting friends and family, or exploring something new.  We are very grateful for the country life, we just wish we had kids to share it with.  We've been married since 2010, and have not been able to have kids of our own. It is certainly a hole in our lives, which is very hard to put into words.  We have ten nieces/nephews (and counting), and we love them very much! Nate's immediate family is just down the road, and no more than 2 hours away.  My family lives in other states, which makes visits fun and special.  

We grew up in very different ways. My Dad was in the Air Force for the beginning of my childhood. I got to live in a handful of different places (including the country of Panama) and I have experienced different cultures.  Even though we moved a lot, our stability was our family; we always had each other.  I guess you could say my experience was more “city” life.  Nate was raised on his family’s cattle ranch.  He has the experience of life-long friends and community; and taking care of others.  Our different experiences, but love of the same country life, make us an amazing team.  Our meeting was truly an act of God. I was living in a suburb of Phoenix and had just finished an equine science degree. I was interning at a horse training barn when a client asked if I would go to Wyoming and ride his horses for the summer.  I had never been there, but it sounded like a good adventure where I was sure I could learn more about horses and see some different country for a few months.  That man happened to be Nate's neighbor.  God had a plan for us to meet, and still has a plan for us to grow a family, even if we can't see it yet.  We find peace in that. We hope you find peace in knowing there is a plan for you, and your baby too, even if you can't see what it is exactly yet.

Thank you again, for reading a little about us.  If you have questions, please reach out and ask Adoption is a huge deal and we'll be glad to answer questions. Best wishes to you,

~Nate and Andrea

 

Dear friends,

We’d like to start by saying a most heartfelt thank you. The decisions surrounding adoption require so much bravery and we are deeply grateful for your consideration through this process. We have an immense amount of respect for you and for your decision. We have been wanting and waiting to build our family for nearly four years now. While we have attempted numerous (unsuccessful) fertility treatments to have a biological child, adoption has also always been a way we’ve discussed and planned on having children.

Nicholas and I both grew up in Jackson, Wyoming and we currently make our home here. Both of us left Jackson after high school to attend college, then found our way home again to the place we both love. A mutual friend brought us together and we have been a loving united front ever since. We began dating in 2009 and were married in 2011.

Nicholas is the manager of a large hotel property in town and I am a Montessori preschool teacher. We are both very lucky to have careers we love and also jobs that offer flexibility in scheduling so we can prioritize family and friends. My love and adoration of children brought me into the field of early childhood and I’m so fortunate to have so many children to love. However, my job also has significantly increased my deep longing for a child of our own. The children of our family and friends absolutely adore Nicholas and we are very eager for the chance to share with our own child all the love we have to give.

We live in a 4 bedroom house with a big fenced backyard in a very family oriented neighborhood. It is a beautiful and quiet subdivision a little outside of town that has a wonderful bike path system and a park just down our street. We’re both so fortunate to have our parents living in the same town as we do; they are all so eager to be grandparents! Nicholas and I also both have younger sisters that we’re incredibly close to that will make the best aunties in the world.

Nicholas and I love to travel, hike around with our two dogs, fish/boat, camp and volunteer. Some of our favorite destinations have been Hawaii, San Diego, Las Vegas and Mexico. My dad has a boat that we frequently take to the lake for fishing and waterskiing. We also have two jet skis and a pop up camper that we use with family and friends whenever possible. We are both members of the Jackson Hole Snow Devils, a community service club in Jackson that puts on the World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb. I am also a member of our local Kiwanis Club, who raise money to donate specifically to children’s causes. We love the camaraderie of these service groups and having a sense of community involvement and giving back.

We are so looking forward to being parents and can’t thank you enough for getting to know us. Having a child is God’s greatest gift and we will feel so honored and blessed by the opportunity. We can’t wait to meet you should you so choose; please know your decision is so highly valued and would make our dreams come true.

Many blessings,
Nicholas and Adrienne

With so many other options out there today, your decision expresses your deep love for your unborn child. Through this website, our profile booklet and Facebook page, we pray that you catch a glimpse of the amount of love that we have to offer. As a couple, we have been together for 10 years. After a year of dating, we married in 2007 and became an instant family with Scott’s three boys. In 2009, we had a baby girl and tried to give her a younger sibling.  After those long, painful years of infertility, God opened the door and our hearts to adoption.  We pray you can see us as we are, appreciate our hobbies, our Christian beliefs, and fathom the depth of our unconditional love.

We live in Wyoming in a ranch-style house on 4.5 acres with plenty of room to expand and play. As a family, we enjoy camping, fishing, traveling to new places or across the country to see family. We love to watch movies based upon comic books.  Kelly enjoys gardening, painting, scrapbooking, crocheting, and anything she finds on Pinterest. Scott likes to play video games, watch movies, take our daughter on dates, and read sci-fi fantasy and historical books.  Our daughter loves anything sparkly and princesses. She particularly likes to wear non-matching clothing and earn the title “Hot Mess.”

Kelly has a graduate degree in Statistics and oversees all math-related activities.  Scott has a graduate degree in Business Administration with a focus in Healthcare Administration. Scott’s role is to evaluate the safety of leftovers and determines when a sniffle deserves medical attention. Our daughter’s future job as big sister has her very excited. As discussed during a drive home, she is more than qualified for the job. She is an expert color artist, gives amazing hugs, picks out awesome cartoons, top-notch snuggler, and selects amazing outfits.

We also have three adult sons. The oldest is works in Tennessee and enjoys hanging out with his friends. Our middle son lives in California and is in the United States Marine Corp. The youngest is attending the University of Tennessee in Martin and will forever be our IT support.

Our family has healthcare for life, a well-deserved benefit of Scott’s past 22-year military career.  He retired from the military in 2011 and is now in a stable job working in healthcare. Kelly also works in healthcare in a non-clinical setting. She enjoys her job and the flexibility it gives her in order to be both a mother and a professional.

As a family, we rescued a dog in 2014. Sassy came to us at about 16 months. She fit right into our family and enjoys her nightly spot sleeping in our bed.  She likes to chase rabbits, eat peanut butter, and receive belly rubs. She does not enjoy being sprayed by a skunk.

This summer, we adopted two kittens. Simba and Nala are brother and sister.  Their passion is bouncing through the house at 2 AM and sleeping all day. They love to snuggle and will help you finish any leftover yogurt. They do not like falling into a tub full of water.

We spend Sundays in church and pray God leads you to us. May God guide your decision in selecting the best forever family for your child.

“For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.” 1 Samuel 1:27

Dear Birthmother/Father:

You are at an important step in your life and pursuing adoption is a courageous act.  It is selfless and we are praying for you.  Tim and I would care for and love your child as if he or she were our own.  In September 2015, we adopted a son and our lives have been enriched.  The baby is loved by both extended families.  Three out of the four grandparents were teachers and the fourth was a college professor.

Twenty years ago my sister chose adoption when she was a teenager.  I was at the hospital and changed his first diaper.  It was the right decision for her.  After he turned 18, he found her and is now part of our family.  Currently, my sister is a wonderful mother to another son.

We are interested in a second adoption to grow our family.  It would be wonderful to share our passion for the outdoors with your child.  Because we value education, it would be a privilege to provide a college education if that is the path your child wants to pursue.

About the Eisenhauer Family

We wish to grow our family because we have love to share.  Laramie is a beautiful location with great outdoor activities.  Tim grew up in Torrington with two brothers.  Tim’s parents are retired 5th grade and Junior High science teachers.  Jenny grew up in South Dakota with three sisters and a foster child from Ethiopia for 10 years.  Her father was a professor and her mother taught preschool.  Both of our extended families enjoy spending quality time with each other.

Tim works for a Civil Engineering company and Jenny teaches at the University of Wyoming.   Our home has five bedrooms and a spacious backyard.  We enjoy grilling dinners and watching sunsets.  During the winter months, we like to drink hot chocolate and build fires in our fireplace.  In September 2015, we adopted a baby boy who is a joy.  It would be very special to provide a sibling for Austin and grow to become a family of four.  Austin is bi-racial and looks just like his older cousin who is 13.  The grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins on both sides of the family love interacting and playing with him.

As an active couple, we hope to share our hobbies with your child.  Together we cross-country ski, mountain bike, and hike.  Our dog Chara joins us.  Jenny makes scrapbooks, sews quilts, and loves reading.  Tim likes to fish and watch sports.  We eat meals together as a family and plan to work on homework each night with the kids.

About Jenny (Written by Tim)

Jenny is the love of my life, and I am so happy to share the rest of our lives together.  She is a very beautiful, loving, caring, and generous person who thinks about the needs of others all the time.  I love that she enjoys spending time with family and friends, or taking part in different kinds of activities.  Jenny is very good around children and is a wonderful mother.

About Tim (Written by Jenny)

Every night I go to bed happy that Tim and I are married.  He is handsome, kind, patient, generous and smart.  The University of Wyoming has a very loyal fan in Tim, because he has season tickets for football and basketball games.  Tim loves sports and would love to coach our son one day.  I am a better person because Tim and I volunteer in our community.  For example, every Wednesday Tim reads to an elementary school class.  We have a happy marriage which translates into a rewarding home life.
