Rob and Martha
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We admire your strength, courage, and love as you consider making an adoption plan. We promise to offer a happy, safe home and unconditional love and support to any child we raise. We also promise to teach them to love and care for others.
We are a family that likes to read and learn, as well as have fun and be silly together. We are unable to have biological children, so we adopted our son, Julian, in 2016. We have a loving and open relationship with Julian's birth family, and we see them regularly. Now we can’t wait to grow our family once more through adoption!
We live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a safe, kid-friendly neighborhood. The schools in Ann Arbor are great, and its residents come from all over the world. Our house has plenty of space and is filled with toys, books, and bright colors. We love having dance parties in the living room, reading books and doing puppet shows, making art projects, and hanging out in our backyard. We like kicking the ball around and riding bikes at neighborhood parks, as well as traveling to the zoo and nearby apple orchards. Martha’s parents live in Ann Arbor, so we also get to spend lots of time with family.
Rob says Martha is smart and fun. She loves eating dessert, reading, doing karaoke, and being a mom. She used to teach fifth and sixth grade, and she recently received her Ph.D. in education. Now Martha works at the University of Michigan to help make schools better for all children. Rob is also at the University of Michigan, where he is working on his Ph.D. in biology. Martha says he is the kindest person she knows. He has an amazing memory, and he loves taking walks in the woods with Julian to hunt for mushrooms. Rob likes music, roller coasters, and learning new things. Julian is sweet and silly. He loves playing cars, dancing, and doing sports. Julian knows how to be calm and gentle with our two cats, and he is great at sharing and watching out for other kids. He really wants to be a big brother.
We are sending you many warm thoughts and good wishes as you make this difficult decision. Thank you so much for learning about us.
