A Letter from Steven & Anna
We are excited to grow our family through adoption! Adoption is important and close to our hearts as Steven was adopted when he was 10. We want to provide the same love and support that our parents gave to us. We are open to any contact you are comfortable with including letters, photos and visits. We are excited to begin this journey with you, and are excited to welcome you and your child into our family. We would love to speak with you soon!
When we met each other for the first time at a local burger place, there was an instant connection. We had a beautiful June wedding a little over a year and a half later. We look forward to sharing our love of family, education, and fun household with your child.
We enjoy movie nights, football games, and attending country concerts together. We love to spend time with family as well as have spontaneous road trips to different places. Steven’s family has a tradition of having pizza every Saturday at a local family-owned pizza joint. Our favorite things to do are spending the holidays with our loved ones and we are excited to incorporate your child, and you, if you are comfortable, into our traditions and to build new ones with them.
Anna is caring, compassionate, and so much fun to be around. She has a way of making our home comfortable and organized and is ready to share her life with a child. Anna currently works as a Post Liver Transplant Coordinator at their local hospital and has dedicated her life to helping others. Nursing and helping others have been a passion of Anna’s since she was a child.
Anna loves to read, play with our cats, watch movies, and catch the latest Nebraska Cornhusker football game! She loves being around our family and I know she will be a loving and nurturing mother. I am looking forward to seeing her hold our child and share with them her love for reading! We have scouted out and found some of our favorite Disney books from our childhood, as well as Dr. Seuss books. We look forward to sharing those with a child of our own.
Steven has such a fun personality and always makes any situation better. His sense of humor gets everyone laughing when we are with our family or friends. He is hardworking and will drop anything to help someone in need. Steven is there for our family and me in every way.
You can find Steven reading history books, spending time outdoors, hanging out with friends, or playing with our cats. He’s wonderful with children and will be such a supportive and encouraging father for your child. Steven is excited to share new adventures and will teach our child something new every day.
Both of Anna’s parents have 12 siblings, so we have lots of family members in Nebraska! Steven’s family all lives in the same town we do, so we see them quite often. We have an extensive support system in our family and friends.
We are starting to form our family traditions, and would love to create new ones with your child! We look forward to opening Christmas presents on Christmas morning (and even a few Christmas Eve), having a big Thanksgiving dinner, and attending church each week. Our faith is very important to us, as we were both raised on Christian beliefs and plan to raise our child knowing God.
We moved into a new 3 bedroom house in a quiet, and friendly neighborhood. All of the rooms are large and have plenty of space to run around, play, and grow. Our backyard is spacious, fenced-in, and ready for a swing set! We’re always looking out our windows and seeing some wildlife, like rabbits, squirrels, and birds. Our friendly cats; Skittles, Jelly Bean, Monarch, and Husker, are a very big part of our family and they are excited to welcome a new member of the family as well. They are all very nurturing and cuddly with anyone willing to give them attention, even children.
Our neighborhood is such a great place to raise a child. We are surrounded by family-friendly neighbors who we get along with. We are close to a large city that has Mall of America, a wonderful state fair every year, and some unforgettable zoo experiences. Minnesota is home to some of the most wonderful fall festivals, fishing areas, and sporting events. We have also found the perfect daycare facility to help facilitate our child’s growth and development not far from our home.
We promise to love your child and provide them with all the experiences they need to grow and thrive! We are financially stable and will provide him or her the opportunity to pursue higher education, if they desire. We will encourage your child in everything they do. Your child will be raised in a faith-based Christian home where love, laughter, and entertainment are a staple in everyday life.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Steven loves attending comic book conventions in his spare time when he can, as well as watching the history channel, reading history books, and trying to beat his latest high score on his video games. Anna loves football!! Growing up in Nebraska means one thing you are a Cornhusker fan for life. Watching football, and attending football games have become something that we love to do as a couple. Anna also loves her job and volunteering at various events that involve the transplant patients that she cares for.
We were both raised on Christian backgrounds. Steve was raised and baptized Lutheran and Anna was raised and baptized Presbyterian. We have found a lovely church in our neighborhood where we will be attending church on Saturday nights, and can’t wait to help a child come to God and learn just how wonderful he is!!
|About Our Home|
We recently bought a 3 bedroom house. We recently had the carpet removed and replaced it with lovely bamboo hardwood (Waterproof, easy to clean, and ready for little feet) We updated the tile in the bathrooms as well. It is 2800 square feet so there is a lot of room for growth and development. It has a large partially fenced backyard that a swing set will fit perfectly in. The neighborhood is family-friendly and quiet which is a great asset. We share our home with 4 cats (Jellybean, Husker, Skittles, and Monarch) They are all kid-friendly and love any form of cuddles that they can get.
