Children

Steven 3 yr

Steven has been such an added joy to our lives. He was born in North Carolina in 2020 and we were able to be there at his birth. We have an open adoption with his birth parents and send them pictures regularly. He is 3 years old now and has become a favorite among his cousins. He is an easy-going boy and has done a few road trips, camping, and some flying to visit friends and family with us.  Steven loves being outside, so we try and get outside daily. He makes us laugh by doing funny dances or flexing his muscles. He will make a great big brother! Steven is sweet, gives tender hugs, and can't get enough of reading books about construction trucks and airplanes.

ABOUT THE COUPLE

Hello! We are Danny and Ingrid. We value our relationship with God, family, and each other, and are excited to share our unconditional love with another child. We are an adventurous, fun-loving family from Wisconsin and look forward to growing our family. Although we have struggled for several years with infertility, long before that God had placed adoption on both of our hearts. Our first discussion about it started back when we were dating long distance. We have been married now for 10 years and have been blessed with our son, Steven, through adoption. Steven would make such a great big brother, and would love to have a sibling to play with.

ABOUT Daniel

I love him for his storytelling that captivates a room and ends in laughter. His laugh is contagious. I admire Danny for his great work ethic. He is a driven person. While he was working as a fire fighter/paramedic, he turned our rental properties into a property management business. Danny is now a real estate developer and property manager full time. He has a strong faith that has provided wisdom when making life decisions for our family.  

EXTENDED FAMILY

Danny's parents are still married and he has 3 brothers. We have 7 nieces and nephews who are so fun to play with, and they would love another little cousin to dote on. Family and friends are very important to us. We have large family get-togethers for holidays with lots of food and laughter. We also like to go on trips with them out west to either hike or downhill ski, or rent a cabin on a lake in Wisconsin to go swimming, fishing, pontooning, and paddle boarding.

WORK & EDUCATION

Danny has an Associate's Degrees in Fire Science and Paramedic.  He worked for the City of Eau Claire Fire Department for 13 years and then retired.  While he was working as a fire fighter/paramedic, he turned our rental properties into a property management business. Danny is now a real estate developer and property manager full time.  He has a great work ethic!

HOBBIES & INTERESTS

Danny enjoys deer hunting, elk hunting out west, and running half marathons where he competes against his friends. He bonds with his brothers and dad watching sports. Danny is a breakfast guy and makes the tastiest pancakes and french toast! He connects very easily with people from all walks of life and has maintained friendships from childhood.  Danny is such a good dad. He is able to get the best giggles out of Steven and is tender-hearted when he needs to be as well. He is adventurous and spontaneous. Danny makes life more exciting, and I am so blessed to experience it with him.

 
ABOUT Ingrid

She is sweet, adventurous, and courageous all at the same time. She has a HUGE heart and loves people with all of it. She is wise and has a deep faith in God, but loves to laugh and be silly also. She likes to travel to warm places, cook healthy food, be active, and take good care of herself.

EXTENDED FAMILY

Ingrid's mom and dad are divorced and we have a great relationship with both of them.  Ingrid has a twin sister and younger half-sister that we enjoy spending time with. All of our family and friends are excited about our adoption journey, and any child who joined our family would instantly have a huge support system of people who love and care about him or her.

WORK & EDUCATION

I've earned two degrees, the first one was a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  I went back to school and earned an Associate's Degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant.  I have now been a therapist for 13 years and work in the skilled nursing facilities in the area.  I worked full time for many years and then when we adopted our son I left my full time job to stay home and take care of him, and now I work once a week.

HOBBIES & INTERESTS

I enjoy being active and getting outside for a walk, hike, biking, or rollerblading when it is nice.  When the weather isn't the greatest I workout at the gym. I enjoy cooking healthy meals and hosting friends and family at our house.  I have a good group of girlfriends and we get together for brunch and play dates with the kids.  We have wonderful neighbors who also have children Steven's age so we enjoy spending time with them.  I love to travel, especially to warm places!  I'm involved in our church with the children's ministry and lead a women's Bible study.  My faith is very important to me and I wouldn't be who I am without my relationship with Jesus.

ABOUT OUR HOME

We love spending time on our front porch. The neighborhood is in a safe area and we have great neighbors who also have kids Steven's age.  Our house is in town on a cul du sac, which is so nice to have extra space for kids to play.  We live near woods so we see a lot of wild life like deer and turkey roaming through the area.  We take Steven to our neighborhood playground. He always giggles on the swing.  We enjoy hosting family and friends. Whether it is to grill out or watch the Packers play, we have a good time. We host international students that come to study at the nearby University. We cook their authentic food with them and learn about their culture while providing them a support system when they are away from home.  We love celebrating Christmas most of all and have created some fun traditions. We look forward to our children adding to and experiencing those traditions. 

 

ABOUT OUR WORLD

We have amazing friends who are like family to us. A few of our good friends have also adopted, so our children will grow up having friends who can relate to them as adoptees.
