Welcome to Our Adoption Story


Okay, so my hair is a little poofier than I realized

Hi, everyone! We are Michael and Dana. We are hoping to adopt a baby. We have created this page so you can learn more about us, and follow along on our adoption journey.

You can learn more about what our life is like, our families, jobs, home, hobbies and interests, why we chose adoption, and what our hopes are as parents.


We plan to update this website regularly. We want to include you on the journey because we believe in the power of community and support. We want to get the word out about our desire to adopt so we can connect with our future baby and his or her birth family!


You know it’s love when you kiss with coffee breath

We are pursuing open domestic infant adoption. I’ll save you the google search. That means we hope to adopt a baby in the United States, and we want to maintain contact with the baby’s birth parents. This is because we believe this is best for everyone involved – the baby, the birth family, and us.

We want our child to grow up knowing he or she is adopted. It is a story of beauty and redemption and we are proud and honored to have a chance to be a part of adoption.
