A Letter from Mike & Brittany
Hello from Michigan! As we share a part of our life with you, we hope that you will be able to feel the love and support that we are eager and excited to provide your baby with. We were blessed with our two boys through adoption. We are so excited to adopt again and to share our love for adventure and travel. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us!
We are a fun-loving and active Christian couple who have been married since 2013. After experiencing infertility, we have been blessed with our two boys through adoption, and love being parents! Whether it is paddle boarding, ice skating, or biking to get ice cream, we are a family that loves being in the outdoors. We enjoy sports, coffee shops, and playing board games!
We love to travel and do so often! We are grateful for Mike’s job as a commercial airline pilot which provides our family with an unlimited amount of free flights. We enjoy visiting new places and experiencing new cultures. We love the fun and excitement that traveling provides as well as the endless opportunities for our children to learn and grow. We are blessed that we are able to make so many memories as a family and look forward to sharing these adventures with another child.
Mike is a kind and loyal man with an incredible work ethic. I am constantly amazed at his willingness to put others first and lend a helping hand. He can always make others laugh through his goofy sense of humor and is a kid at heart. Mike is a sports fanatic and loves golf, hockey, and the Texas Longhorns. He is our grill master and enjoys having barbecues. Whether it is playing ball, building forts, or making animal shaped pancakes, Mike is a very devoted father who will do anything to make our boys happy. He is looking forward to taking another little one out for breakfast on Friday mornings.
Brittany is a very outgoing and caring person who loves Jesus with all her heart. She always puts others and her family first. She is very personable and I love how she seeks out the best in everyone. Brittany is a Physical Therapist by trade but is living her dream by being a stay at home mom. She fills our days with fun adventures and is always seeking out opportunities to teach our boys something new. She loves Dolly Parton, animals, mountain biking, and using her creative abilities in the woodshop. Our boys love her living room dance parties and when she does fun projects with them. She is excited to share her love of family and adventure with another child.
We have been blessed to adopt both our boys, and it has been a joy to watch them grow and learn new things each day. Tyus was born in 2015 and is a social butterfly with a kind heart. He loves legos and playing outside. Decklan was born in 2018 and is such a happy little boy. He loves puppies, airplanes, and tractor rides. Both Tyus and Decklan are biracial so sharing and embracing their heritage is important to us, and we promise to do the same for any child who joins our family!
When it comes to family we are blessed in abundance. We were both blessed to have been raised in Christian homes and continue to be very close to our immediate and extended families. Brittany has one older brother. He and his wife have two boys who we see frequently for movie nights and sleepovers.
Mike’s parents live in Texas along with two of his sisters and his brother. He also has a sister who lives in Idaho with her husband. We enjoy visiting them multiple times a year.
Our families make sure no achievement or milestone goes uncelebrated and are very active in our children’s lives. Everyone is excited for another child to love!
Our five bedroom home is located in the country where we get to experience all four seasons to their fullest. We live within walking distance of multiple family members including Brittany’s dad, brother, sister-in-law, nephews, and aunt and uncle. All family members live separately on an 80-acre lot that includes an indoor basketball court, ice rink, and plenty of room to run and play. We love that our children are surrounded by so much love and support.
We enjoy sharing a small hobby farm with our family which includes two horses, a mini pony, chickens, and a donkey. Our boys love caring for and interacting with the animals.
Our rural community has a great school system and a growing downtown. There are many parks and beautiful beaches; our favorite is just one mile from our home. Our community is a very fun and safe place to live.
We promise to provide your child with a God-centered home filled with unconditional love, support, and laughter. We will do all that we can to help them develop their unique gifts and talents and will always encourage them to purse their passions. Your child will be raised in a financially stable home where a quality education is valued and time for fun is made. Through open and honest communication, your child will always know their adoption story. We welcome the opportunity to stay in contact with you in ways that you are comfortable with.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We love making new memories and traditions as a family and love being parents. We love traveling and take many family vacations throughout the year. We enjoy seeing new attractions, experiencing new cultures, and trying new foods. We are a family that loves being active and loves the outdoors--hiking, swimming, ice skating, building snowmen and sand castles, and mountain biking to name a few. We enjoy spending time with family and friends and hosting barbecues in our backyard. Mike loves grilling, smoking meat in his smoker, and making homemade pizza. He is loves playing golf and building legos with our boys. Brittany enjoys mountain biking, planting flower gardens, and spending time in the wood shop where she makes many neat signs, puzzles, and decor items. She also loves all animals and hopes to one day own a miniature highland cow. We always look forward to family movie nights with popcorn and ice cream sandwiches as well as playing board games and having dance parties.
We are a couple that loves Jesus, and our faith is the center of our lives. We believe a strong marriage and stable family comes from a solid foundation in Christ. We attend church regularly and participate in weekly Bible studies. Brittany also volunteers in the nursery and toddler programs. We have a wonderful church family! We will teach our children about Jesus and the wonderful plan he has for their lives.
|Our Musical Interest|
Although we may not be very musically talented, we love having dance parties in our living room, and sing karaoke often! We also enjoy singing loudly in the car and listening to many different genres of music. We are fortunate to live close to Brittany’s brother who plays multiple instruments and writes and records his own songs. He even let us record our own song for our wedding, which all the guests loved!
|About Our Home|
Our five bedroom home is located in the country where we get to experience all four seasons to their fullest. There is so much room to run, ride bikes/4-wheelers, go sledding, build forts, and just have fun! Our boys love playing in their new play room. We love that our home is within walking distance of multiple family members including Brittany’s dad, brother, sister-in-law, nephews, and aunt and uncle. Living so close allows for frequent family get togethers and game nights. Our boys love playing with their cousins and we are happy they are all able to grow up together. We all enjoy playing games in our indoor basketball court, and have a weekly basketball night with friends. We also enjoy sharing a small hobby farm with Brittany's aunt and uncle. We just recently added a donkey named Raymond that the kids enjoy riding.

Living on 80 acres of land allows us to be active and enjoy nature. Located one mile down the road from our home is a beautiful lake where we swim at the beach, build sand castles and go boating. Our neighborhood also has many beautiful nature trails, bike paths, and parks. We enjoy taking bike trips to the ice cream and root beer station in the summer, and going ice skating/playing hockey on our backyard rink in the winter. Our home is a ten-minute drive from town, our church, and school. Our growing community is very safe and a wonderful place to live.|
