We appreciate and thank you for taking the time to read our story. We grew up in small towns in Illinois that were less than three miles away but did not even meet each other until we were in our early 20s. Like most people that lived in our small community, we met at the local hangout spot. Heather was too shy to talk to Mike so she made her friend talk to him first. We eventually went on our first date two years later and immediately hit it off! We dated for five years before we got married in 2007, and enjoyed a lazy and relaxing honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
After struggling with infertility, we adopted our son Jayce in 2017. Today we are looking forward to growing our loving family again through adoption!
