Adam & Jami

We are honored and grateful that you are reviewing our profile! We adopted our daughter, Annabelle, almost four years ago and we are thrilled to be on the road to adoption once again. We have so much joy and love to share with another child and we hope you consider us on your journey!

Cultural Diversity

Our Goofy Family

Fortunately for us we both come from culturally diverse communities and our home is located in a small community rich in diversity- including many trans-racial adoptive families! Our church supports many families of adoption as well. Our children, regardless of race or cultural origin, will be surrounded by many cultures!

As for what makes them unique, we intend to encourage and participate in every way our child desires to learn about their heritage. From experiencing music in live performances, to learning about and recreating the culturally relevant foods or seeking out restaurant locations that are diverse. Checking out state museums, parades, stores, plays and concerts are all things we dream of when visualizing our future with our children.

With Annabelle, we've made sure to give her toys and books that include black characters and black excellence. She also has black friends and will be moving to a very diverse school. We are also excited to continue our personal growth in this regard, whether it be providing and discussing culturally relevant books or viewing movies of significance. This will not replace real live examples of our people of same race as our child that are positive and powerful examples!

What Makes Us Unique

We are both very down to earth folks but there are a few things that make us a little special.

We actually own our own restaurant! It's a larger chain restaurant based out of Wisconsin and is now in over 20 states. Jami has worked in this restaurant chain for years and just a few months ago had an offer we couldn't refuse! While the restaurant business can be demanding we have an amazing team that helps us! We also have incredible flexibility to make it to sporting events, appointments and so on! We both work together and that is special too! Our daughter actually calls the restaurant "my blue restaurant" which is adorable and when she visits our team shower her with attention (and food!).

We are also involved in many different hobbies. Jami really enjoys making cards, reading, maintaining flower gardens and planning time with friends and family. Adam enjoys cooking, smoking meats and woodworking! Together our favorite time in spent playing with our little girl whether it be in our back yard, on the floor with magna-tiles or off on what we call "adventures"! She loves adventures where we don't tell her what we are doing until we get there and she is tickled! We cannot wait to share these "adventures" with another little one!

Why We Chose Adoption

We Can't Wait to Grow Our Family!

When we were on our very first date, out to eat at a restaurant, we discussed family and how important it was to us. We both brought up how we would enjoy raising children with "the right person". What was strange was we BOTH felt that growing our family would happen both naturally and through adoption. We felt finding a significant other that wanted to adopt was on a top list of importance! While we cannot exactly explain it, we just knew adoption had been place deep in our hearts. Even though infertility has popped up in our life we are not adopting because of that. In fact, we would have been through the adoption process much earlier had infertility not distracted us! We are called to adoption and while we are already blessed by adoption we feel as though our family is meant to grow again!

Our Extended Families

Our Niece's Confirmation

We are a family that truly enjoys entertaining and spending time with family and friends. It is not unusual for us to have a cookout where Adam has worked hard to smoke meat with his special seasoning while Jami is working on decorating and setting up before the gang arrives! All of our close friends have kiddos that our daughter loves to play with and our backyard is a perfect place with an area for the kids to play and adults to relax! We cannot wait to share this with another child!

Time with Cousins

Our immediate families live 40 minutes away. Jami's father passed away in 2015 while her mother and Adam's parents reside in the same town. We have Holidays that include both sides getting together! Jami has one older brother who is married with two kids. He is 7 years older than Jami so they have a special relationship. Adam has one younger sister who is married with one little one. Adam refers to his niece as the "apple of my eye". The family cannot wait to have another addition!

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

We live in a small community in Wisconsin that is filled with growing families. Right in back of our house is a city pool and new splash pad! There are also basketball courts, a skate park, baseball diamonds, soccer fields and two large playgrounds. As if that wasn't enough, the 4th of July fireworks are held at this park so we host our family/friends every year to a cookout and watch the fireworks in our back yard! Our town has four different parades and summer festivals that are fun for kids and families. We also have a trail head that runs through the park for hiking, horseback riding and snowmobiling! There is even a creek filled with trout!

We Love Spending Time in Our Back Yard

Our home is an open layout. The main level has a master bedroom, our daughter’s room and nursery! The basement has a comfy living room, office, a play room (bouncy house, trampoline and ball pit) and a large bathroom. Our favorite room is our screened in porch! We enjoy relaxing out there while watching our daughter play on her playground and watching the sunset. We cannot wait to share this with this child and our family is excited too!

From Us to You

Hello and thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We have been married for 13 years and have experienced one amazing adoption of our daughter, Annabelle. While this is our second adoption journey, we are still taken aback by the paperwork necessary. As we sift through this, the most emotional part for us is writing this letter to you. For us, this was the one piece we looked forward to most.

Know this, we think of you. We think of you and the choices before you and feel nothing but incredible respect for this gift you are thinking of offering a family like us. We think of not only the choices you have to make but how will you make them? What is important to you? Most importantly, we so wish we knew how we could help. You are an inspiration to us and an incredibly courageous person.

You are facing an incredibly unselfish choice and we feel very blessed to be considered. We promise to do the best we can to raise this child to reach his/her/their greatest potential with many adventures! We promise so much laughter their souls grin. Will this child be safe? Absolutely. At all cost and measure. Will this child be treated with kindness? With our full hearts. We are all imperfect. No judgement here. This home will be open to mistakes - we will discuss how to learn from them - supportive of this child's personality and a childhood full of grace. Laughter will be key in our home. Finally, will this home be loving? Absolutely, from every ounce of our beings, yes. We have so much more love to give and cannot wait to share this. We are such an incredible balance to one another that we will keep each other in check. Love to us means there is nothing that can separate our unconditional love of our children. No action, no word, nothing will change our love for this child. In fact, we love him/her already.

We are open to various forms of contact that are healthy for this child. We also have the ability to plan annual in-person visits if this is something you would like to pursue. We are very comfortable with technology and have experience with open adoption as our daughter’s lovely birth mother is in our lives and we are in contact nearly weekly. We cherish this relationship and feel as though our family grew by more than our daughter. In fact, she wrote a short message for you:

I chose the Adam and Jami to take care of my daughter for so many reasons. One, they are incredibly compassionate people and have open hearts. They love wholeheartedly and they don't judge! Another reason being their loving family and sweet dog. Their family is so close and love Belle to pieces! It makes it a very friendly environment for any child to grow up in. I knew they were a perfect fit when they were told "their baby is here!" they drove that MOMENT (8 hours) to the hospital! They dropped everything immediately to see their baby girl. I have grown to absolutely LOVE and adore Adam and Jami for their support of me, being there for me, and the way they love and care for Belle.

In closing, we just want you to know how grateful we are that you are reading through this and considering us. We are, without a doubt, ready to add to our family, ready for that next big adventure! Again, we promise you we won't be perfect but we will offer unconditional love to this child, this gift. This beautiful, perfect, miraculous gift. Our family will be complete!

With love,

Adam & Jami
