Our Story

From the very beginning, we knew adoption would be part of our journey. We have so much love for one another and cannot wait to share that love with a child in our home.

We first met in 2018 at a restaurant in downtown Hudson, WI and have been inseparable ever since. In August of 2020, we were married at a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Planning a wedding during a pandemic presented some challenges, but together we navigated through every obstacle for a truly unforgettable day surrounded by the love and support of our family and friends.

As a couple we enjoy spending time in the outdoors hiking, fishing, and going on walks with our dog, Ruxin, as well as quiet nights at homes playing board games and sharing stories with one another. Each night we set aside time to have dinner together as a family, a tradition that we both experienced growing up and are excited to share as our family grows.

We understand that adoption is a decision that is made out of strength and utmost love. Thank you for considering us, and we look forward to getting to know your story as well, while continuing this journey together.

Plans For Work/Daycare

As a couple, we will take the first 4-6 weeks off of work upon placement. Brian works from home full time, and Erryn will be working from home part time so together we will be responsible for the majority of all child care. If a situation arises where we both have to be out of the home for work, Brian’s parents would be a secondary childcare option. We also plan to seek out a licensed childcare professional to have as an additional backup option if needed.

About Erryn and Brian (Written By Their Partner)

I couldn't imagine my life without Erryn as my wife. She is intelligent, creative and above all compassionate. She spends more time thinking about others than herself and goes out of her way to make those in her life feel appreciated. I can share my feelings with her openly and honestly, knowing she will always support me. I admire her drive and ambition, but also her fun and goofy side. Erryn is a planner. From our wedding, to mapping out the nursery, to our grocery list, she has it all covered. She has the biggest heart, and I can't wait to see her be a mother because I know she is going to be incredible.

What I love most about Brian is his selflessness. No matter what has happened in his day, he's always the first to ask me about mine. If a friend or family member is in need, he is always there to help. When we go fishing, Brian takes the time to guide me through every step. He sets my line, hooks my bait and if I get tangled up, he never hesitates to stop what he's doing to help me. He chooses to make me a priority, and I know he will do the same for our future child. He is the person I can confide in, who supports my ambitions and loves me for exactly who I am.

A Message From Us Both

Our promise to you is that we are committed to providing a child in our home with the best life and care we possibly can. For us, that means a home where he or she can learn, grow and experience the world in a safe, consistent and loving environment, knowing that he or she is loved by both his or her birth family and adoptive family.

Growing up, Brian and I were both supported in exploring our own areas of interest and passions, whether that be sports, music or academics. We look forward to providing these same opportunities for a child, helping to nurture their individual interests and talents as well.

We are beyond grateful for you taking the time to learn a bit more about us, and we are eager to learn more about you.

We hope to hear from you soon.
