Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We are a loving Christian couple from Wisconsin. After struggling with infertility for years, we became foster parents and, after seeing our foster children reunited with their birth mother, we realized God was leading us down the path of adoption to create our forever family. We are so excited to welcome your child into our home and promise to provide them with a safe home full of unconditional love.

A Letter from Nathan & Taña
We have been together for 13 years and married for 10 years. We knew of each other through mutual friends but never formally met until we happened to come across each other on a dating site, and that is where our story begins.
We love spending time outdoors- Everything from camping, boating, sitting around bonfires, riding our golf cart around our neighborhood, and playing fetch with our dogs, Molly and Henry. We participate in a lot of neighborhood activities where we all get together and enjoy catching up and making s’mores. We also find joy in relaxing at home, cooking meals together, gardening, playing rummy 500, watching a baseball or football game together, and of course an occasional movie night with some popcorn.
We are excited to welcome your child into our family and look forward to teaching them the importance of strong family values as well as share with them our passion for nature and cooking.
Nathan is an amazing person. He is extremely loving, kind, caring, and compassionate. Nathan is outgoing, can easily make friends with anyone he meets, and always knows how to make others smile.
When he was a teenager he was in a dirt bike accident and lost sight in one eye. This has never stopped him from living life to the fullest and enjoying all that nature has to offer! Nathan has a passion for boating and fishing and you can catch him on the water, no matter the season. He also has a passion for baseball and is so excited to share all that he loves with your child. Nathan was a wonderful father figure to our foster children and I know he will be a fantastic dad to your child. He is so excited to share his passion for the great outdoors with them and teach them how to fish.
Taña is a wonderful person! She is a warm-hearted individual that is always looking out for everyone’s best interest. Taña is very open-minded and always willing to listen to others. She is never one to be judgmental, and has taught me to always remember to listen to people before making assumptions. These qualities are what make her such a great therapist and will make her a fantastic mother. She takes pride in her job, loves spending time with friends and family, is a great cook, and makes amazing home-cooked meals that I always look forward to. She enjoys volunteering in her spare time as well as reading, taking walks, swimming, baking, and cross-stitching. I know that she looks forward to sharing her passion for helping others, baking, and reading with your child and that she will teach them the importance of having a good moral compass.
Our families are excited to welcome your child into our lives and home where we will pass on traditions, create new ones, and build many happy memories.
Nathan’s father lives in beautiful Northern Wisconsin while his sister and brother-in-law live in Minnesota with our wonderful niece and 2 awesome nephews. Nathan’s grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins all live in Illinois. While his family is spread out, they are all within driving distance and we look forward to taking road trips to visit his side of the family with your child.
We enjoy seeing Taña’s mother and step-father several times a week. Taña’s mom enjoys sharing their Puerto Rican heritage and you will often see her cooking traditional Puerto Rican meals. Taña’s father and step-mother live in Florida along with her 3 brothers, two sister-in-law’s, 1 niece, and 1 nephew. Taña also has family within an hour of our home and family in Puerto Rico.
We live in a 3 bedroom ranch home across from a lake. Our home is filled with love, compassion, and respect for nature- the perfect place to create many happy memories. We often cook together in our kitchen and enjoy spending time relaxing in the living room when not out in nature. Our yard is spacious with plenty of space for playing games, hosting birthday parties, and building a treehouse.
We love living in a tight-knit lake community and share our home with our two dogs- Henry and Molly. Henry is our energetic 12-year-old golden doodle and Molly is our 11-year-old chihuahua and bichon mix. Both are very friendly and love children.
Our promise to you is to raise your child in an environment of unconditional love, faith, respect, and honesty. They will be surrounded by extended family and friends who will support and love them in all that they do. Your child will be cherished deeply and loved by many. We are committed to honoring you and your place in your child’s life in any way that we can. We would love the chance to learn more about you and look forward to keeping in touch with you at your comfort level.
