A Letter from Michael Ann & Rob
We are so thankful you have made this courageous decision to bring your child into this world in order that he or she may be afforded the greatest gift of all, life. We hope you consider our family worthy of loving your child.
We are grateful for the opportunities God has given us, particularly the blessing of adoption. It has been a dream of ours to form our family through adoption and we are ecstatic to be on this journey again. We look forward to providing your child a loving family, supporting them in all that they do, and we are praying for you and your baby!
We are a Catholic, military family stationed in California, soaking up the adventure the Navy has afforded us. Our love of this great nation brought us together and our love for God keeps us strong.
Throughout the week we cook together and walk the pups each night under the moon and stars. On weekends, we try to explore a new part of our state and immerse ourselves in the outdoors, especially the beautiful ocean near our home! We enjoy riding our bikes down the boardwalk, working out, and eating delicious, home-cooked food. Our favorite pastime is going to Catholic Mass because it is the foundation of our faith. We are excited to share these joys of life with your child.
Rob is my dream husband, friend, and father. He devotes countless hours to service of God and country. When he’s home, he enjoys jamming on his guitars and playing the piano, working on projects around the house, playing chess, creating amazing meals, and stand-up paddling with the pups, all of which he hopes to teach our child!
I am genuinely proud of the work he does and the way he serves his community. What gives me the most joy is his care for others. His selflessness is what makes me a better person. He is the most loving father and his example is the catalyst to make us all the best versions of ourselves.
Loving and being loved by Michael Ann, has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. She is caring and generous, yet it is her incredible love of God, children, and family that has been a constant source of direction for me. While passionate about her work, she primarily enjoys her walks on the beach, writing poetry, making people laugh, and praying. She is also incredibly engaged with our military community, and has become an aunt figure to many of our friends’ kids. She cannot wait to stir and inspire the same joy and creativity in our baby.
We’ll face many challenges in life, but I feel blessed and humbled to face them with such a loving wife whom God created to bring light to the world. She is a wonderful Mama!
Our son, Joseph, was gifted to us by our loving birthfamily, and we couldn’t be more overjoyed. We are hopeful to bring another beautiful child into our family.
Our home, besides the comfort it provides, is rich with local history. It is close to our church, the most beautiful ocean views in the state, and our family and friends. There are phenomenal schools all around us and we have been blessed with amazing neighbors. We have a lovely, open, and bright 4 bedroom home with great living space and we recently converted our guesthouse into a play space for the baby! It is warm, welcoming, and is a tremendous place to raise our family.
We promise to love and adore your baby as you already have. We promise to bring them up in a joyful home, spending quality time with family and friends. We promise to teach them about truth, beauty, and goodness. We promise to share with them your beautiful journey and how they became part of our family. We promise a life of love and joy for your child. It is our calling to raise children with a heart for God and for others.

|More About Our Family|
We are devout Catholic Christians and we will share our faith with our children, ensuring the best path for them to know and love God.
We have saints for parents who will make incredible grandparents to your baby. Rob is the third child of seven children and Michael Ann is the middle of three. Both sets of parents have been lovingly married for over 30 years!
We travel several times a year to Rob's hometown in Missouri to spend time with his family including our 6 nieces and nephews going to the zoo, museums, parks, and the family farm. Michael Ann's family is in California, so we share dinners, movies, and great conversations together throughout the week. We are blessed to be from these Catholic families who led us to build a strong, Christian family of our own!
In addition to our immediate family, we have an extended Navy family living all over the globe. We are truly surrounded by a network of loving people who fully support our mission to adopt.
