A Letter from Mike & Eileen

Hello! We are hoping to adopt a child because we have not been able to have one biologically. We have a lot of love to share with a child and are excited to grow our family through adoption!

We are looking forward to creating memories with a child. We love to explore nature and visit our local forest preserves. We both also love to travel and have a long list of places we want to take a child to. At home, we both love to cook and are looking forward to weekend pancake breakfasts and introducing them to new food and trying new recipes.

Thank you for learning about us as you make plans for your child’s future. We’d love to hear from you! To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
