Who We Are
We are Andrew and Amanda. We have been married for three years and together for ten. We lived down the block from each other our whole lives and circled the same groups of friends but weren’t close to each other until right after high school. We don’t really have one of those “when we first met stories” because we grew up knowing each other. One night we walking home together from a party we were both at, and we bonded over mutual interests. We talked about some of our favorite TV shows (The Office), as well as our shared love of reading sci-fi and fantasy novels. Our friendship quickly turned into a relationship. After seven years together, we finally got married at the Morton Arboretum, one of our favorite special places. It was a small, intimate ceremony with only our immediate families, but it was absolutely perfect!
Meet Amanda’s Parents and Grandmother
We have been blessed to have supportive family members and so happy to be able to share them you. Everyone is so excited to welcome any child we are blessed with into the family!
Meet Andrew’s Mom
We decided to go with another getting to know us post since has been so long since our last one. Family is so important so it’s important to us to share our family with any expectant mother considering adoption for her child. Our hope with these posts is that collectively an expectant mother can get insight into what life would be like for her child if she chose us as the adoptive parents for her child.
