Although we grew up only twenty miles from one another, we met 250 miles away, in another state! We met on Match.com and got married three years later. We bought a house, got a sweet dog named Ring (Andrew's partner at work), and started planning for the day we would have children. Unfortunately, after 6 years of heartbreaking losses, that day still has not come. However, along the way we have only grown closer and deeper in love. We are each other’s best friends and always seek the other’s guidance, advice, and company before that of anyone else. We enjoy going for walks, being out in nature, visiting new places, going to the beach, and spending quiet time together at home. From our very first date, we were attracted to one another because we each thought the other would make a great parent. We are so grateful to have hope that we will one day be parents through adoption, and we can't wait to become a family of three!
We live in a quiet suburb in a safe and child-filled neighborhood in Virginia. Our house has so much space for a child, including a backyard just waiting for a swing set to be built! Our extended families are filled with loving, loyal and capable people who will instantly adore, accept and support an adopted child in every way possible!
Our town has everything anyone could need, including many fun places! From parks with playgrounds, to movie theaters and bowling alleys and even mini golf, there's just so much to do! We are so excited to take our child exploring!
What Marsha says about Andrew...
Andrew is the most
hard-working man I know. I
always feel safe with him
around and my happiness is
always his first concern.
Andrew is responsible, trustworthy, capable, and is always thinking of others. I am so lucky to have found him, and I can’t wait to see him be a dad!
What Andrew says about Marsha...
Marsha is smart, loving, motivated, and responsible and most importantly, she holds both me and herself to a high standard. Marsha is the only woman besides my mom who has ever pushed me to become a better person. As soon as I met Marsha I knew she would be a wonderful mother.
