Family Details

Torey and Christopher

Hello! We are the Michels Family!
We are a proud military family.  Chris is a Staff Sergeant in the Unites States Marine Corp and Torey is an administrative professional who is working towards earning her Master’s degree. We have two rescue pups who make every day an adventure! Penny is a 2.5-year-old Labrador mix and Willow is 2-year-old Collie mix. We consider Penny and Willow members of our family and take them with us wherever we go!

On the weekends, you can find us working in the yard, kayaking at the beach, spending time with our family, biking our favorite paths, or just simply enjoying each other’s company. We enjoy the outdoors and love to explore the beauty around us.

We couldn’t be more excited about adopting a kiddo/kiddos! We are committed to providing a safe and secure environment to ensure kids feel protected and comfortable. We can hardly wait to be the parents on the sidelines watching and cheering on sporting events, attending dance and music recitals, being chaperones on school field trips, and all the amazing adventures we will get to experience that comes along with being parents! Once placed with a child or children, Torey will be a stay-at-home mom to take care of and be available for all of the child(ren)’s needs.  We understand the unsavory conditions the children have had to face to be to this point. We are realistic in knowing that there will be bad days; at times more bad days than good days. However, we are here for the long haul, to Weather the storm, to be their forever and always. If it is one thing the military has taught us, it's how to be resilient. Proactive is also a virtue we have been taught, as well as going with the flow and trying until something works. 

Being parents is something we have always wanted and have longed for.  We cannot wait to enjoy the simple pleasures of hearing giggles, hosting slumber parties, or teaching our children how to read, cook, and sew. We look forward to all of the “firsts” that come with being adoptive parents, such as family pictures, family vacations, etc.  
We have so much love and excitement to give! We can’t wait to begin the journey to having our forever family.
