Picture this...

Weekends filled with trips to the pumpkin patch and baseball games.  Afternoons playing with the neighborhood kids at the splash park, making popsicle stick and tissue paper crafts, and baking homemade cupcakes for school.  Evenings singing together at the piano and cuddling on the sofa with a big bowl of popcorn and a Disney movie.  Family game nights with the grandparents and an outing to the ice cream parlor for a special treat.

These are the types of experiences we plan to give a child.  We cannot promise to be perfect parents, but we have an abundance of love and resources to share.  Thank you for considering adoption and taking the time to read our profile.  We sincerely wish the very best for you and your child.

About Us

Anne - Attorney & Artist

Anne loves all things creative - including cake decorating, crafts, painting, and home decorating.  She enjoys woodworking and refinishing furniture in her garage workshop, and tackling home improvement projects with her dad.  She thinks it’s fun to help her friends reorganize their closets!

Anne works as a part-time attorney for a government agency.  She loves the flexibility of her job, and working from home.  She also enjoys the complexity of her work and spending time with her coworkers and their families.

She also runs a small custom cake decorating business with her mom.  They can create almost anything out of fondant and icing.  Together, Anne and her mom create beautiful wedding cakes and elaborate birthday cakes for friends and family.  Every Christmas season, Anne looks forward to making intricately decorated sugar cookies to give as gifts to her neighbors and friends. 

Anne is a romantic at heart and enjoys watching a good love story and the Hallmark Channel.  She also dancing away the stress of the day at her local Jazzercise fitness center. 

Michael - Architect & Mucisian

Michael is a music and film enthusiast.  He loves creating music and going to concerts.  A couple of his favorite musicians are Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.  He plays several instruments, including the piano, guitar, harmonica, and accordion.  He is also a fan of Alfred Hitchcock films and classic dramas.  He has a collection of more than 3,000 movies.

Michael is a professional architect and has always loved the beauty of buildings.  He enjoys researching the history of our town and our 100-year-old home.  He cares about historic preservation and being a caretaker of architectural history for future generations.

Michael appreciates the simple things in life.  He enjoys reading mystery novels and historical nonfiction.  A few of his favorite writers are Edgar Allan Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Bill Bryson.

Activities We Enjoy

When we are not creating cakes or music, we spend our evenings entertaining our three cats - Sidney, Izzy, & Marlo.  Our cats have an abundance of energy, and frequently snuggle with us while we watch a movie or cheer on one of our favorite teams.  We are avid fans of the Kansas City Royals, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Kansas Jayhawks.

We also enjoy spending time with our family and friends.  Our families live just a few minutes away in the next town.  Every month, we have game night with Anne's family, where we play card games and dominoes.   Michael's family loves to grill, and we enjoy watching Royals baseball games and KU basketball games together.  Our parents are excited to become first time grandparents.

Over the last few years, we spent many weekends restoring and preserving our 100-year-old home.  We live in a historic neighborhood, and we love touring the old houses in our area.  A few short blocks from our home is the charming town square, where we walk to local restaurants, boutique shops, and the Saturday morning farmers market. 

We also love to travel and discover new places.  Our favorite vacations include cruises to New England, Alaska, and the Mediterranean.  We especially enjoyed touring the ancient ruins in Italy and Turkey.
