​3 Hearts, 2 Journeys, 1 Family


Dear Birth Parents,

Thank You does not begin to show the appreciation we have for you.  We can't imagine how difficult of a decision you’re faced with.  Our hearts go out to you during this time.  We hope you have the support and respect you deserve.  Please know we are also excited and humbled by the gift you are giving to the adoptive parents.  We would be honored to raise your child if that were to be your wish and we appreciate this opportunity to tell you a little bit about ourselves.

We met on an online dating profile called Compatible Partners (LGBTQ+ version of EHarmony).  Dustin is originally from the small farming town of Black Wolf; it’s on the outskirts of Oshkosh.  He was raised on a family farm that his brother now handles. Dustin is a free spirit whose down for anything but also likes to stay at home. He really likes to bake; a passion he learned from his mom and grandma.  I (Paul) grew up in the small town of Denmark, just outside of Green Bay.  I’m an outgoing, funny, social butterfly that enjoys making memories with my loved ones.  We also have a 5yr old rescue dog, Emma Jean.  We’ve had her since she was seven weeks old.  She’s a loving, fun, sweet dog that enjoys playing with children. 

Dustin and I love and value the time we have with our families.  We enjoy playing games, traveling, and helping our families in their time of need.  We also feel that’s important to have family traditions since family will always be there for you.  During the good times and bad; the love of our family is unconditional. A couple of our family traditions include Pumpkin Carving and an Annual Booyah Party.  I would love to tell you more sometime.

When it comes to parenting, we feel it’s a partnership to bestow morals and values to your children.  No parent is perfect, they only do what they think is best for their children.  We would raise your child in a safe home of love, honesty, and embracing our individualities/diversity.  This is our promise to you.  We would raise them to know that nothing in life is free and you can achieve great things when you put in the work and time.  They will grow up in a house of love, laughter, fun, and discipline while embracing their individuality.  They will learn about family values and that family will be there for you whenever you need them. 

Please know that in our house you will always be respected for your decision as you are giving us an amazing gift. Depending on your comfort level, we would love to discuss your involvement in your child's life.

Thank You for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us.  We understand that you have a difficult decision ahead of you.  Our extended and complete profile book is available is at both Adoption Services office locations if you’d like to learn about who we are.  Please know that we respect whatever decision you make for your child.  We only wish you and your child nothing but happiness and love. 

With warm regards and humble heart, take care

Paul and Dustin
