dear expectant mother

Hello,

There is no way for us to know everything you are going through, but we hope we can be a part of your journey. Even though we don’t know you yet, we pray for you every night. The fact that you have read this far and maybe are imagining us raising your child is a truly indescribable feeling. We have so much love to give and have been preparing for a chance to raise a child our entire lives.

You have been able to experience things we can only imagine and will give life to a child who is full of dreams and possibilities. We can’t wait to teach our children to bake Michael Paul’s secret cookie recipe or take them camping to our favorite spots while the leaves are changing colors in the fall. We want our children to experience different parts of the world to see how different cultures live and let them find the sport, art, or hobbies that make them light up inside. We want to spend every day, for the rest of our lives, making those dreams and possibilities become realities. Caring for a child and giving them every opportunity available so they can change the world is our dream.

Thank you so much for giving life to so many dreams and for bringing this light into the world. We truly look forward to meeting you and answering all the questions you might have.

Sincerely,
Brandon & Michael Paul

About Us

Growing up, we went to rival high schools. Michael Paul had friends try to get him to meet the “cute swim guy.” We had many close encounters throughout the years but didn’t meet till we were in our late 20s. We have been inseparable ever since. Michael Paul knew we were in it for the long haul right away and even put a gummy ring on Brandon’s finger just a few months after meeting. We are an active couple that likes to travel and is focused on giving back to our community. Michael Paul is using his degree in neuroscience to go to medical school, and Brandon is a data analyst. We both work from home, so we get to eat together every day and make surprise visits whenever we think about each other. We are each other’s best friend, and we are so lucky to be together.

Our Home & Pets

Our house is in Michael Paul’s hometown. We love the large pear tree in the backyard that is perfect for climbing and the picnic table for family meals outside. Michael Paul can’t wait to throw the football around or teach the children to catch a baseball in our yard. This is an amazing neighborhood with lots of young children, schools, and diversity. Michael Paul’s little brother, Tristin, is also living with us for the next few months and is looking forward to lots of quality time with his future niece or nephew. We have a small dog, a Maltese named Icarus, and Tristin has a chihuahua named Milk Dud.

Our Extended Family

We have a very large, blended family. Michael Paul boasts eight siblings (with only two related by blood), and Brandon has four siblings (also only two blood relatives). Because of this, we believe family is whatever you decide it is.

We have a family lake house where we all meet up on weekends to eat or take the boat out and are always there on the Fourth of July to see the air show and private fireworks displays that would put most cities to shame. We change who hosts most holidays, but we always spend Christmas Eve with Michael Paul’s mother, and everyone always gets their own smoked turkey leg for Thanksgiving. We have extended family all over, from Wisconsin and Texas to Germany and Africa, and we love to visit each other as often as possible. We take family vacations every year and travel all over the world to see each other.

What Led Us To Adoption

We will never have biological children; we know we are meant to adopt. This is not the last resort for us; this is who we are. From the beginning, we have talked about our future children and how to prepare to be good parents for children we aren’t able to bring into this world. We are being entrusted with the single greatest treasure one could ever hope for. Our purpose is to provide the best environment possible and take care of that treasure. It is the greatest accomplishment we will ever have.
