Dear Expectant Parent(s),

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family.

We are Alan and Leta, along with Jonathan, our son, and Callie, our dog.   We grew up in the same Wisconsin town located on the Lake Michigan shore.  After college, we reacquainted at our friends’ wedding and married 10 months later in 2005.  We have worked, lived, and traveled around the world.   We enjoy being outdoors, taking walks, seeking out new places, and experiencing new things together.  We especially love cooking and exercising hospitality, often opening our home to others.

We now reside in Southwest Michigan among two diverse communities.  One is a thriving, family-friendly tourist destination, while the other is experiencing a period of restoration.  Alan works as a Supply Chain Manager, and Leta works as a substitute at our local library.  The area is filled with parks, beaches, orchards, and vineyards that we frequent often.

In 2015, we joyfully welcomed Jonathan into our family through adoption.  He has been such a blessing to us and to those whose lives he touches.  He is a lively, outgoing boy who continually introduces himself to others with a big smile.  He loves being outdoors, playing with the neighborhood children, and frequenting the local parks and beaches. 

It is our desire to once again open our home and hearts to another.  We wish to raise little ones to know the love and grace of the Lord.  We believe each child is a gift and is to be considered precious and held dear.  We know the decision ahead of you is not a light matter nor will it be an easy choice.  We hope that in giving you a snapshot of our life thus far we can offer you assurance that this child will continue to be loved and cared for

We are excited to meet you and the little one you carry.

About Leta


More About Leta

Leta is a wonderful wife, mother, and friend. She shares her love and joy with all those around her. She is the type of person that a stranger will sit down with at a coffee shop and stay conversing long past the coffee remaining in the cup. Our house is often filled with delicious food and friends because of her hospitality. It has been a joy watching her become a mother and share her love of life and the Lord with Jonathan.
