Hello from the Midwest! We're Aaron and Madelyn!
We are a young, adventurous, family-centered couple that is super excited to begin our family through adoption! We enjoy hiking by the lakes, playing board games, bonfires, and a cozy movie night with cheddar popcorn! As parents, we are looking forward to starting new family traditions and watching our child grow into the person that God designed them to be!
Growing up only 2 miles away from each other, we met in kindergarten and began dating in high school. After 5 years of dating, we finally got married while still in college! Over the last 2.5 years, we have built a strong, God-centered marriage. Our desire to be parents stems from our wish to experience the joys of parenthood alongside our children, as we journey through life's prime years together. After experiencing infertility, we are excited to expand our little family through adoption!
Meet Madelyn (by Aaron)
Madelyn is the most compassionate person I have ever met and has the biggest heart for all people! She is a part-time social worker working with older adults and runs our own wedding coordinating business! I love watching her use her God-given gifts to help people in both of her roles. Deep down Madelyn is a grandma at heart as she enjoys crocheting, baking, and snuggling up under a warm blanket to read a good thriller book. She will make the most amazing mother as she is loving, wise, patient, and does an incredible job showing the love of God. She is looking forward to baby snuggles and laughing with our child!
Meet Aaron (by Madelyn)
Aaron is the most hardworking and selfless man. Being a medical device engineer, he is not only providing for our family, but he is also using his God-given talents to help the lives of those in need. He loves to tell dad jokes, do anything outdoors (hiking, fishing, long-boarding), and play/write music. Aaron's love for the Lord and his passion to share that with everyone is what is going to make him an incredible dad. He is looking forward to teaching our child how to fish and play music.
We are very family-oriented and often see our family multiple times per week! We are fortunate and while we were dating our parents became best friends, enough so that our families do holiday celebrations all together. Our family is so excited and supportive of our adoption! They cannot wait to welcome your child into our family and spoil them with love!
Our Home in Minnesota
We live in a spacious apartment that is located in the quiet suburbs of Minneapolis. Our city is safe and family-friendly with the many perks of living nearby to the city (zoos, parks, children's museum). Minnesota is also known to have one of the best educational systems in the country, with our city having one of the highest ranked school districts around. There are tons of trails that surround our beautiful community that we take evening family walks on. Nearby there are playgrounds and local lakeside beaches that are perfect for our child to play outside!
We promise to raise our child to know the love of God. We promise that our home will be a place that they will feel unconditionally loved, seen, and safe. We promise to encourage them to pursue their dreams and to challenge them to grow in their own confidence.
We believe that open adoption is a beautiful opportunity for two families to become one. We have been praying for you and for your child. We are committed to having open communication with you, always at your comfort level. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and we look forward to learning about you!

More About Our Family
What's Important to Us
- Raising our children to feel loved, supported by us, and safe in their home
- Making sure our foundation as a family is on God and His word and sharing that with everyone
- Supporting each other to pursue our passions and dreams
- Spending time with family/friends
- Being honest and respecting others
Our faith is more than just something we do, it is who we are! We live our lives to be and love like Jesus. We are very involved in our church and serve in a few areas: kids ministry and special events. It is our goal to share the love of Jesus with our child to allow them to grow into the person that He designed them to become!
We are a part of an incredible church community that is just as excited as we are to share the love of Jesus with our child. We both volunteer in the kids ministry on Sundays and attend a small group each week.
We gather each week with a group of close friends for food and games. During these times, we share our highs and lows of the previous week and get to do life together.
Our Favorite Traditions
We have a lot of family traditions, but there are definitely a few favorites that we are excited to share with our child:
- Whenever we visit somewhere new, we always play a round of mini golf
- Every Christmas season, our family goes up North to Duluth, MN to visit Bentleyville, which is a huge Christmas light show
- Strawberry picking every 4th of July and making homemade jam
- Decorating Christmas cookies and delivering them to local fire stations and emergency rooms on Christmas Eve
