“…whoever welcomes a child like this…. welcomes Me.”
A Letter from Craig & Jackie
Hello! We’re a tight-knit family with lots of support and love to share with a child. We love children and are excited to adopt our first baby! Our story began when we met online and hit it off right away. Now we’ve been together 5 years and after trying to have a child biologically for a few years, we believe God has led us to grow our family through adoption. It would be a blessing to welcome your baby into our family! We hope to get to know you and the life you want for your child’s future.
A Little About Us
According to Jackie: From our first date, Craig was such a gentleman. He brought me flowers and opened doors for me. We had an instant connection and our friendship and marriage have grown stronger with every year together, through everything we’ve been through. We always knew we wanted to have children and it’s our hope to offer our whole hearts and a loving home to a child through adoption.
Together we enjoy:
• Weekends in the camper at our permanent campsite
• Taking walks with our dogs
• Doing crafty things, like painting classes or making wood signs
• Going to local hockey, football, and baseball games
Craig says: Jackie will be the most patient and understanding mother. She’s very creative and will make lots of handmade treasures for our future child. She loves time with our nieces and they love her too. Jackie always thinks of others first and makes sure everyone is taken care of.
• Crafts, such as loom knitting, scrapbooking, and diamond painting
• Making gifts for loved ones
• Being outside
• Reading (all kinds of books!)
Jackie says: Craig will be a loving and understanding father. He loves to make kids laugh and find ways to help them have fun. (I love how he is willing to be silly just to make someone smile!) Craig loves animals and it lights him up to care for our pets.
• Playing video games
• Watching sports
• Finding new things to do outdoors
• Working with technology
Our Home in Wisconsin
We have a two-story house with 4 bedrooms and a nice backyard that has plenty of space for us to put up a playground for our future kids. The walls of our home are filled with family photos and loving or inspirational sayings. We look forward to setting up a nursery in the room across from our bedroom.
Our neighborhood is family-friendly with an elementary school within walking distance, and lots of parks nearby. The town we live in is not small, but also not huge, so there are many things to do as a family within a short drive.
We have a great support system in our extended family and friends. They are all happy that we want to adopt and will welcome our future child with so much love. Jackie comes from a pretty big extended family, while Craig’s side is smaller. Between us we have 18 nieces and nephews! Most of our family lives in Wisconsin so we see them often. Craig also has family in Montana and we love to visit them when we can.
As a family we like:
• Going to an amusement park or the zoo
• Shopping or going to a movie
• Big family dinners for Thanksgiving and Christmas
• Jackie’s family Christmas parties
We promise to be a constant, loving support as parents, never giving up on this child and always there to help him or her through anything. We promise to teach your child to be responsible and independent, kind, and compassionate, and to make the most of the life God has for them. We will provide a good education and opportunity to go to college, if they want. Our whole family is behind us to love this child completely!
We want our child to know how we came together because of you and adoption. We hope he or she will always know where they came from, and how much you mean to us. We’re open to sharing future contact at your comfort level, such as letters, phone calls, photos, or visits.
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child! We’d love to get to know you or answer any questions. Please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
Thoughtfully, Craig & Jackie

|Weekends at Our Campsite|
Most weekends in the summer we’re hanging out in our camper to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and have fun. The campsite is just 30 minutes from us and there’s a lot of activities for kids, mini golf, swimming, and a little train to explore the grounds. We like to walk around with Buster or take our golf cart into town for ice cream or shopping. It’s a great weekend getaway that we can’t wait to share with a child!
• Family & having a supportive circle
We have 2 dogs and 4 cats who are very much a part of our little family! Buster is a little dog who loves to snuggle and Bella is a sweet Collie/Terrier puppy. Our cats are Max (the “boss”), Apollo (snuggly chatterbox), Deena (shy and sweet), and Luna (our little diva).
