A Letter from Clayton & Nichole

Thank you for letting us to introduce ourselves. We are blessed to start our family through adoption and are excited for the many joys that come with parenthood. We are a fun-loving couple who sometimes like to do things at the drop of a hat. Whatever God has in store for us, we look forward to embracing every precious moment with our son or daughter and hope to share updates with you along the way.

Our Story

Our paths first crossed in 2009 with both of us working for the same employer. We progressively got to be real close friends and our love for each other grew stronger which lead to our engagement in 2011. On a beautiful September day in 2014, we became one in front of our family and friends with God as our witness.

Leading up to marriage, we discussed our desire to have children to share our love and knowledge with. After getting married, we soon learned of our infertility. We prayed to God for guidance and we were called to adopt.

As a family we enjoy attending Church, volunteering for various events, spending time with family and friends, live music/concerts, Polka dancing, attending sporting events, singing out loud randomly, going to amusement/water parks, road trips, and game nights.  We look forward to including your child in what we like to do while embracing their interests as well.

My Husband Clayton

Clayton is well organized, detail-oriented, and one of the sincerest people you will ever meet. Always is willing to lend a helping hand whether by volunteering or by using his gift of being tall to get an item off the top shelf for someone. He is very supportive and does what he can to provide the best life for us which I know he will do for our future son or daughter.

Having followed in his parent’s footsteps, Clayton works in the insurance industry. Outside of work, he can mostly be found outdoors riding his motorcycle, playing sports, or just enjoying the fresh air.

He looks forward to sharing with our child his fascination in music engineering, electronics, sports, amusement parks, and teaching our child to Polka dance.

My Wife Nichole

Nichole is my best friend. She is caring, sweet, and full of love. I love how quirky her sense of humor is. She puts everyone’s needs above her own and goes out of her way without being asked to help others. I know she will be a great mother to our child.

Nichole excels in her job as an insurance claims adjuster. When not working, you will find her watching Hallmark movies, finding the next creative home DIY project or a baking recipe to try, and keeping up to date with scientific discoveries, particularly astronomy and geology.

She looks forward to attending our child’s school concerts, cheering them on at their sporting events, and putting their artwork on the fridge.

Our Home in Wisconsin

Located in rural Central Wisconsin, our ranch-style home is on a three-quarter acre fenced in area with surrounding woods in the back. There is plenty of room to run and play in the backyard along with a fire pit to roast marshmallows and spend time with family. The inside is spacious but with a cozy feeling. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Our basement is fully furnished and has a large area for a play room.  Our neighborhood is family-oriented with parks, recreation, and schools nearby. During the Holiday seasons, we love to decorate our home.

Our Family

We both come from small immediate families. Clayton is an only child and Nichole has one younger sister; however, we have lots of Aunts and Uncles with many cousins. Both of our families/friends are very supportive of our decision to adopt and are ecstatic for us to have our own bundle of joy to love and care for. Our kitties look forward to the extra treats that they will get when Mom and Dad aren’t looking. We are grateful to have most of our family live within a half-hour of us. It is just a short drive away for our child to play with and get snuggles from Busha and Dziadzia (Grandma and Grandpa in Polish).

Our Promise

Our commitment to you is to always prioritize your child first. We promise to love your child unconditionally, cherish all the moments in their life, and encourage every opportunity in their education and future endeavors. We promise to teach, guide and prepare them for all the challenges that come with life. They will be brought up in a safe and fun-filled home surrounded by our Catholic Faith. As a family, we look forward to celebrating holidays, taking road trips, random sing-alongs, and hopefully catching a foul ball at a baseball game.

If chosen to be the parents for your child, we will be eternally grateful and blessed. Your child will know their adoption story and the background that they come from.  We hope to share updates through photos, video calls, or occasional visits.

More About Our Family
Our Pets

We have three cats who keep us on our toes! Their names are Jordy, Sammy, and Kaylee, They love to play and can be a bit sassy at times, but we wouldn't change it for the world. Jordy is named after our favorite Green Bay Packers player Jordy Nelson. He is our oldest kitty and the protector of our other cats. Most of the time, you can find him cuddled up under a blanket with Nichole. Sammy is very smart; sometimes too much for her own good. She loves to play fetch with Clayton. Kaylee is our shy yet very rambunctious kitty and is the protector of us. She loves playing with anything and everything that she can get her paws on.

Our Faith

We are a Catholic family and attend mass every week. Both of us are very involved in our Church whether by ushering for mass or helping at our parish picnic.

You will find us drinking hot chocolate, binge watching our favorite TV shows, playing board games, or cuddling up on the couch while watching a Christmas movie.
