Dear Expectant Parent (s)

We can't even begin to imagine all the different emotions you are going through. We have tried for many years to build our family and we are so excited to pursue adoption. Your decision will give us one of the greatest and most selfless gifts imaginable...the gift of a family. We hope that as you read through this profile, you will find comfort knowing that we will give your child a life filled with love and happiness.

Who We Are

We met in June 2005 when we lived in Illinois through some mutual friends. Okay, yes, it was a blind date, but luckily, our friends saw that we were great for each other and the rest is history!

After only three dates, Todd helped me move into my new house (if he is willing to help you move, you know he is a good guy) and proposed six months later dressed as Santa Claus. We were inseparable after that and married in June 2007, surrounded by all our family and friends.

After one year of marriage, Todd's job and warmer weather brought us to Texas. While it was hard to say goodbye to all our friends and family, it made us become even closer and stronger as a couple. After 8 years, we now call Texas "home" and find ourselves saying "Y'all!"

Adoption Diary

Our Families

One thing we certainly have in common is the unconditional love and support from our families.

Amy grew up with her mom, dad and brother, but from there, her family extends to 16 aunts and uncles (plus their spouses) and 35 cousins. So, needless to say, Christmas with Amy’s family is quite an experience! Amy’s parents are both retired and are ready to visit Texas regularly to be involved in their new grandchild’s life.

Todd grew up with his mom, dad and sister. His extended family isn’t nearly as large as Amy’s, but he still has quite a few aunts, uncles and cousins. Todd’s parents both still work, but are very close to retirement. They’ve been talking about moving to Texas once they do to be closer to us and to be an active part of their new grandchild’s life.

Amy and Todd share a very unique bond in growing up with their siblings:

Amy’s brother, Bryan was profoundly mentally disabled and functioned at a two-year old level his entire life. Even though Bryan was never able to speak, it was such a cool thing to see how he just lit up whenever he heard Amy’s voice. After such an amazing life, Bryan passed away at the age of 29.
Todd’s sister Amy, was born with cerebral palsy and has been confined to a wheelchair her entire life. Despite her disability, she has been such an inspiration! She earned her masters degree in social work and has worked in education as a social worker. Recently she has even become a published author!
Growing up with our siblings certainly gave us a different perspective throughout our childhood and caused us to really appreciate our families and experiences.

Our Pets

We’re so lucky to have two amazing dogs, Beau and Radar, both of whom we adopted from a local shelter. They are both very well behaved, and we know they will be great playmates for our child. Our favorite thing to do with Beau and Radar is go to the local dog park and on neighborhood walks. We can’t wait to take our new baby on walks with our dogs too!

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Amy & Todd
