McKenzie & Nolan



Dear Birthmother,

To a Loving Mother:

We feel so grateful you have spent the time reading our profile. We can’t even begin to imagine the feelings and emotions you are going through right now. The love you have for your child is unmatched and will never go unnoticed. A decision like this takes strength, courage, and selflessness, and we want you to know that whatever decision you decide to make is the right one.

Being parents is what gives us purpose in life. We love our daughter unconditionally, and these last four years have been the best of our lives. Should you choose us to love and cherish your precious child, your baby will be surrounded by the same unconditional love and support. For as long as we’ve been together, we have dreamed of the day when we would hear our children giggling together and building relationships that will last a lifetime.

Your child will be welcomed into a home that is filled with love, laughter, and happiness. We strive to provide an environment of learning, growth, and new experiences. We read, play games, sing songs, go for walks, and have plenty of playtime every day. Our weekends and summers are full of trips to the zoo, attending local events, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. We can’t wait to shower another little one with our love, affection, and care while watching them grow into the human they are meant to become.


About Us

We are McKenzie and Nolan from Wisconsin. We met in May of 2017 and have been married for three years. McKenzie is creative, outgoing, and compassionate. She enjoys camping, playing games, hiking, and being outdoors. As a teacher, McKenzie has a way of building relationships with not only children but their parents as well to provide the best education she can for her students. Nolan is hardworking, funny, and energetic. He enjoys running, the outdoors, and hiking. One of Nolan’s greatest assets is his ability to become friends with and talk to anyone he meets. Nolan also loves learning, which allows him to move around as a machinist and learn how to operate new machines. Together with our amazing daughter, Rylee, whom we were blessed with in 2019, we enjoy traveling, camping, spending time at our family’s cottage, exploring state parks, and spending quiet weekends at home.


Our Home

We live in a welcoming, three-bedroom home in a tight-knit, family-friendly neighborhood. Our home has an open-concept floor plan, which allows playtime to continue while dinner is being prepared. In the summer, children can be seen riding bikes and running around the neighborhood playing games. We are a bike ride away from a local park, the local YMCA where we are members, and a highly rated elementary school. We have amazing neighbors with children of all ages, whom we have developed close friendships with. We have two dogs, a five-year-old black Lab and a ten-year-old springer spaniel, as well as a kitten. Harper and Bella love cuddling, sharing kisses, and playing fetch, while Sayla loves to chase the laser pointer and play with the dogs.

Our Extended Family

We both have large, loving, and caring families. We are fortunate to live in the same area where McKenzie grew up and therefore have the luxury of being close to her brother, parents, and grandparents. McKenzie has two grandparents, and both of us have several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Together we also have four nieces and nephews, whom we love dearly. We spend a lot of time with McKenzie’s younger brother and his wife along with their incredible son. Our daughter adores her baby cousin and loves to play with him and read books to him. The two of them make family get-togethers exciting!

Holidays are our favorite as we make it a point to share them with both sides of our family. We love the traditions our families have built and strive to share that with our children. Every holiday is filled with laughter, home-cooked meals, and board games.

Our parents are so excited to welcome another sweet grandchild into their lives. Between our siblings and our parents, we feel so grateful that our children can spend lots of time with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins making memories that will last a lifetime.


What Led Us To Adoption

Having a family was one of the first conversations we had when we met. We both knew we wanted to have two to three children. Both of our families have been blessed with the miracle of adoption, and we have seen firsthand the love and excitement adoption provides for a family. We want our daughter to experience the same bond with a sibling that we have with our siblings. We are excited to see her laugh, play, and bicker with as well as have a friend for life that she can always depend on. Though we are not able to have another biological child, our hearts and home are open and ready to welcome a child into our lives through adoption.
