Wally & Michael - Open Arms Adoptions


Hi, we’re Michael and Wally, welcome to our profile! We’re truly grateful for your time getting to know us through your screen and can’t wait for the chance to meet you in person. We are a true yin and yang couple. Michael is extroverted and always on the go with things to do, places and people to see. Wally is more of a free-spirited introvert who loves to spend time with friends and family and always down for a game night at home. Together, we love to travel the world, see shows, attend concerts, play summer sand volleyball, and spend time relaxing by our pool. We have two dogs, Ryka and Gretchen.

We moved from Cleveland to Canton in 2020 to be closer to Michael’s family and to be in a good school district for our future child(ren). As they say, it takes a village! Our family (specifically Michael’s side) loves Christmas and the traditions we share. Every year, we go to a tree farm with Michael’s family and search for each other’s Christmas trees. Michael is known by many as a Christmas elf. He lights our home much like the Griswold’s and makes annual ornaments to give as gifts. We started a tradition of both of our families doing something festive together.

Wally’s family is mostly located around the Sandusky area, so we go up to see them for major holidays and important family events. His four siblings are spread all over northern Ohio so there’s rarely a weekend when we’re not traveling all over the state. We’re both weirdly Italian-Polish heritage (regardless of our looks, and holidays consist of way too much amazing food).

Thank you for considering and trusting us while you make this difficult decision. With our hearts, know we will fill your child’s life with love, laughter, and unconditional support. Not only from the two of us, but our wonderful families as well.
