Truck Driver / Medical Billing Specialist
Hello, we are Daniel and Nichole. We are in our early and mid 30’s with a love for life and family. We live in a small town in Southwestern Wisconsin in a home that we bought from Daniel’s grandma. Daniel is a truck driver for our own trucking company and Nichole works from home as a Medical Billing Specialist for a large chiropractic company. When we are not working we enjoy many things including time with our families and friends, working in the shop on our classic cars/trucks and our race car, and even a quiet night in watching a movie together. We have 2 dogs and 1 cat, Boone is a Blue Heeler who is his dad’s best friend and trucking partner. Ruste is an Australian Shepherd who loves everyone and is best friends with our cat. Our cat named Bo is black and white and is full of energy at the oddest times of the day/night. We often wonder if he is an elephant instead of a cat. We hope that going through our profile helps you to get to know us a little better. Thank you for potentially considering us to join you in making an adoption plan.
Adoption has been something we have considered since we started dating. Nichole has struggled with fertility since she was in her early 20’s. We always knew it was possible we couldn’t have our own biological children but both want to be parents. We struggled since we got married to try to have a biological child but that road traumatically ended with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in 2022. After that, we decided it was time to start our adoption journey because becoming parents for us didn’t need to be about DNA/biology.
We are located in a small town in Southwestern Wisconsin near the Wisconsin River. Our home is Daniel’s grandparents' home that he grew up in. They helped his mom raise him. He has a little brother who is in his final years of High School. We have been a big part of his life and upbringing as well. Nichole was raised by her mother and father on the other southern side of the state. She has one brother and one sister and many nieces and nephews. Her brother is married with one little boy, and her sister is married with 4 children, two boys and two girls. Her sister’s oldest boy is married with two children of his own, making us a Great Aunt and Uncle. Daniel’s grandparents and Nichole’s father have passed but still continue to influence our lives daily.
About Nichole from Daniel: I love that everything we do, we can do together. Life is better having a wife who enjoys the same things you do and is just as adventurous as you are. Nichole is dedicated to growing our family and making sure we have everything we need/want. She has a big heart, and I know this because she helped take care of my grandparents in their final months and years with us. She enjoys photographing our adventures, baking or cooking for an army, and spending time with our families. She can always be found helping hold things together or entertaining the little ones to give others a break. She is supportive during challenges we may face, but we always face them together.
About Daniel from Nichole: Daniel, my husband, what I wouldn’t say about him. Just kidding. I couldn’t imagine walking this life without him. Daniel gives 110% of himself to anyone he can, even if it’s someone stranded on the side of the road. He never hesitates to stop and help. He is dedicated, hard working, honest, and loyal, sometimes to a fault. When he is passionate about something, nothing gets done halfway. He can be found in our shop working/tinkering on something, at the dragaway on race days, playing with the fur babies, or spending time with our families. Watching him with our nieces and nephews is something special, I enjoy watching their bonds grow and hearing the giggles surround us. He is the glue that holds us together with his strength and courage.
We met at a truck and tractor pull many years ago. We remained acquaintances for quite a few years until 2016 when we started talking more during a time when Nichole’s vehicle was breaking down. Daniel was there giving advice and later invited Nichole up for the truck and tractor pull that weekend. The rest is history from there.
Our hope for you is that you are given the chance to thrive into the person you deserve to be. We want to be able to provide you with every opportunity to experience anything your heart desires. Leave no stone unturned, be involved in activities, groups, sports, and events that make your heart happy and help you to further yourself into the person you are meant to become. Have goals in life and never stop trying to achieve them. We hope you know that you are loved and cared for by both families and know that you are supported.
Open adoption is a beautiful thing. It allows both the birth families and adoptive families to remain in contact to a healthy and comfortable degree for all. Openness allows the adopted child/children to still know where they came from and also to know their history/heritage. Openness allows the birth family comfort in making an adoption plan and continuing to be in their child/children’s lives. It also allows the adoptive family the ability to receive information from the birth family regarding health concerns/histories if something were to happen to the child/children. For all involved it allows the most amount of love and support to be shared and given.
