Ryan and Amanda met during our freshmen year at Ohio Northern University in 2008. We lived down the hall from each other and mutual friends introduced us. Ryan asked Amanda out on their first date in the dorm lobby while waiting for the pizza man to arrive (thank goodness he was late because Ryan was nervous!) After our sophomore year, Ryan moved back to Columbus, OH. We kept our relationship going strong even through long distance. In January of 2012, Ryan proposed to Amanda in front of our closest friends. Just a few months after graduating from college we got married in Chicago on September 20th, 2014.
Together we love to cook, go on road trips, gather with our family and friends, explore new cities and challenge ourselves with something new each year. At the same time, we also appreciate things like rainy days, coffee dates, taking our dog, Rocky, for walks, going to the movies, game nights and trying ultimately to treat each other with love and respect.
We are ready to give our unconditional love to a child and expand our family through the miracle of adoption!
