We were both born and raised in Illinois. We met in junior high and have now been together for over 13 years and married for almost 5 years. Nick is a maintenance manager and Shannon is a nurse in the emergency department. Together, we enjoy cooking, traveling, golfing, gardening, and enjoying our favorite sushi. As a family, we love cooking on the grill, riding our bikes, having picnics in the yard, playing on the swing-set, or playing fetch with our dogs. When inside, we are enjoying homemade popcorn and movie nights, blanket forts, puzzles, and snuggling up with some good books.
We always knew that adoption was a piece of the puzzle. In 2017 we were blessed with the birth of our first son, Noah, and in 2019, we were blessed with our second son, Nash. After this and several hospitalizations, we learned that it was not safe for Shannon to have any more children. God quickly told us that it was now time for us to adopt.
We love being parents and raising our family together. Family is important to us and we can’t wait to grow ours by welcoming your child!
