Ben and Drew

Hello! Our names are Ben & Drew!

We live in Columbus, WI along with 2 cats, Mim & Twix, and our tortoise, Gus.

We are both daycare workers, Ben works with 2-3 year olds and Drew works with 4-5 year olds.

In our free time, we like to visit family, cook/bake, work on crafts, garden, along with the occasional relaxation. Our family loves going on adventures and seeing new places. Our goal is to take a trip to Hawaii one day. Every July, we take a week to visit Drew’s extended family on a beach in Oak Island, NC. Drew’s family has been doing this for the last 30 years.

Our extended family is vast and very supportive of an impending baby in our future.

Bradley and Kara

Thanks for reading our bio! Our names are Bradley and Kara, and we’ve been married four years. Bradley is an engineer in the electric utility industry, and Kara is a teacher at a Christian school. We love interacting with and working with kids. Between school, our church’s children’s and youth ministries, and our friends’ children, we have countless kids of all ages in our lives, and we are excited to welcome a child into our own family!

 We have a great community through our church which includes many close friends, and even though neither of us are from Wisconsin originally (Kara’s from a big city near the West Coast and Bradley’s from a small town in the Southeast), we both feel right at home and have put down roots here. 

We value our relationship and love spending time together. We believe that maintaining a healthy marriage is not only good for us, but it’s also one of the best things we can do for our children. For this reason, we intentionally set aside time for weekly date nights where we just have fun together, as well as family meetings where we talk through all the important things going on for the week. 

We love learning, reading, telling stories, and playing board games. We enjoy music and theater. Kara loves gardening and dancing, and is learning a lot about cooking and languages (specifically Latin, Spanish, and Italian). Bradley loves playing Zelda, playing his bass guitar, and mentoring high schoolers. We’ve made a cozy home for ourselves in our condo. We have a fish tank, photos on the walls, and every room is painted a different color. We live in a small, but growing, city, with plenty to do–like going to the various beaches, shops, restaurants, or parks, and we can’t wait to share these things with our future family!

Thanks again for taking the time to consider us. May God bless you and guide you as you make this decision.


Keith and Jessica

Hello, we are Keith and Jessica!

We both work in the financial community. Keith is a Financial Control Analyst. Jessica is a Quality Control Analyst. We live in south eastern Wisconsin on 4.5 acres outside of town. We have been married for almost 5 years.  We have 2 miniature goldendoodles, a cat, and a tortoise. We spend lots of time outdoors camping, hiking, gardening and playing with our dogs.

Both of our families have been touched by adoption; Jessica and her siblings are adopted and Keith’s half-sister was adopted.  Our families are very supportive and excited for us as we continue on our adoption journey.

Thank you for taking time to read a little about us. We will be praying for you and we wish you the best as you navigate your decision.

Melissa and Troy

Hello! We are Melissa and Troy from Sussex, just outside of the city of Milwaukee Wisconsin. We have always dreamed of becoming parents, and are excited to be on our adoption journey. We are a family of four with our Shorkie, Zoey, and our Mini Goldendoodle, Lucy.  In our free time, we love to go to the dog park, garden, and hang out with our family and friends. We enjoy going to our family’s cabin up north, exploring the many parks and trails around our neighborhood, and going on family vacations.

We understand that this is one of the biggest decisions you may ever have to make in your life. We hope that we can show you that we would make great parents for your child. We will love them unconditionally and wholeheartedly. We promise to give your child a childhood filled with many fun and wonderful experiences.  We would welcome an open adoption and see the 
value in maintaining birth family connections.

We’re grateful for the opportunity to share a little about ourselves, and look forward to answering any questions you might have. We truly wish the best for you in whatever decision you make. Love, Melissa & Troy

Alex and Drew

Hello! We are Drew and Alex from Stoughton, Wisconsin. We are currently a family of 5 with two dogs (Emmy and Lily) and a cat (Lenny). We are so excited to be on our adoption journey, as this is a dream come true for both of us. Alex is a District Manager for one of Wisconsin’s most beloved stores, Kwik Trip; and Drew is an Accountant for the county we live in. In our free time, we love to travel as much as possible. We are so excited to add a child to our adventures and explore the world together! We also love to spend time with our dogs at the dog park, bike, camp, attend local festivals, and spend time with family. Drew is excited to teach our future child how to cook a five course meal and be a professional bowler, while Alex is excited to teach about everything Harry Potter and Pokémon.

We are so excited to have an open and transparent adoption with you. We know how difficult of a decision this is to make and will stand by your wishes and beliefs wholeheartedly. It takes a village to raise a child and you will be part of our village. Thank you for your consideration!

What our clients say


I can’t imagine a better experience than working with Cindy! She was incredibly thorough and detailed in her explanations of every step of the process. She was INCREDIBLY responsive and even helped us with things that were technically not in her job description. We ended up leaning on her more than any other person in our adoption journey. She was also extremely thoughtful and kind to the birth mother, which is the most important thing in my opinion. We are so happy with our new baby boy and cannot thank her enough for helping us through this process.







Adoption Ave & Cindy are wonderful. As a biological mother, my pregnancy and adoption were a happy experience.

A picture of Cindy can go in the dictionary to define “bubbly”. She is also organized and fiercely protective of birth mothers. I’ve been in contact with many families and adoption agencies before finding Cindy… the difference is day and night. She spoke to me with respect and kindness, she is passionate for her work and has decades of experience. Both myself and the biological father felt comfortable and welcome from the first time we met her.

I knew that I could contact her at any time for questions or support and sometimes did. Even after the adoption, she was receptive to me reaching out, even about unrelated topics & I believe that Cindy and I will have an ongoing connection.

The adoptive parents also loved her! She took charge of the “behind the scenes” stuff and that went so smoothly – I didn’t have to lift a finger even once to get support and legal requirements arranged. Thanks to her experience, she set us up with a strong legal team and the parents were able to leave Wisconsin with the baby in less than a week! We expected to be stuck for much longer.

Cindy and the adoptive parents are among the most amazing people I’ve met in the past years. I highly recommend them & I am so glad that I didn’t settle for anyone else.






“From the first informational meeting through the home study process, to navigating the red tape of final adoption, Adoption Avenues has guided us through the uncertainties of the adoption process. Both Cindy and Andi were a pleasure to work with. We wholeheartedly recommend Adoption Avenues.”
