Hello Expectant Parents!

Thank you for taking time to read about us. We know that choosing the people to raise your baby is a hard decision for you. We will raise your child with love and acceptance for who they are in a safe home. We look forward to parenting and the opportunities to help a child learn and explore. We promise to do all that we can to care for your child so that they can grow up with a happy life ahead of them.

Here's a bit about us! We are Andrew and Glenna, and have been married for ten happy years and have a cottage together with a large garden full of vegetables, berry bushes, fruit trees, and flowers. We are seeking to adopt due to infertility and because we wish to expand our family and share the love. Many of our family and friends are neurodivergent or have physical or mental disabilities, so we are very used to helping them and being accommodating to their various needs.

Andrew has a Bachelors in Computer Science, and works from home as a Senior Software Developer. He is the youngest of eight children and has many nieces and nephews, including one that is adopted. Glenna has a Bachelors of Business Administration, and she runs a small online business with a friend making doll clothing and accessories. She is the oldest of three children and has several fur nieces.

We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and do a lot of volunteering at our church. We have a pet western hognose snake named Chocolate Chip, and he loves chin rubs and digging around in his enclosure. He’s a very sweet boy who likes watching Youtube and video games we are playing.

Hobbies and Fun Things We Enjoy:

We play Dungeons and Dragons with our friends once or twice per week and have a lot of fun telling stories together.
We are part of the SCA (a non-profit educational medieval reenactment group) and enjoy learning about history, especially when there is new information on the subjects. We attend events in period garb, participate in crafts, and do service with the goal of educating people about our shared past.
Andrew loves to garden and grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers in our yard.
Glenna likes to do fiber arts, such as knitting, spinning yarn, sewing, and weaving.
We both like to play video and board games with friends and family.
We like to travel and see historic and natural wonders when we visit family or friends.
We love museums, zoos, aquariums, festivals, etc. of all kinds.
Glenna loves music and is a classically trained singer who sings in our church choir.
We both love to cook, bake, and grill on our back patio.

Who We Are

Andrew and I (Glenna) met at church the day after I moved to Utah to start fresh and started dating a month later. We love being able to talk about anything: history, our thoughts and feelings, hobbies, and hopes together. We value each other's intellect and good heart and strive to keep that going in each other and those around us.

Adoption Diary

Gone to California

Andrew and I have gone to California for a little under a month right now. Our future child’s grandma, my mom, has had hip surgery, and we have come down to take care of her during her recovery.

It’s been so wonderful to see her recovering so well even a couple days post-surgery and she had some wonderful conversation with us. Just tonight she found some cute pictures online and said she would make little cat-shaped pancakes with strawberries like she saw with her grandbabies once she has some. It was so cute!

We hope you will choose us soon! The child would be our first, and my mom’s first grandchild. She’s already looking forward to meeting and loving them, as are we!

Our Eleventh Wedding Anniversary

This past week Andrew and I celebrated our eleventh wedding anniversary. We’ve come a long way since we first started, but I could not have chosen a better man in my life than him. He treats me and my family so well and generously, and I never feel like I can’t handle something with him by my side.

So we spent our anniversary in bed sick, though. It was pretty funny—we caught colds from our niece and the sickness landed on us on the day. It’s a good thing he took it off from work already! We’re just getting our immune systems prepared for when it’s our child’s turn. :D
