Amanda about Brian: Brian is the most kind, loving, patient, level-headed, funny person that I have ever met. He always knows exactly when to interject a joke to remind me not to take life too serious and knows when just to listen to what I have to say. Brian is always supportive in any wild and crazy idea I might have, whether that be a last minute trip to Hawaii or hosting a family get together. He is an amazing father, this child will be so lucky to have him as their dad.
Brian about Amanda: Amanda is a very loving, organized, and driven person; she really is the perfect fit for me. Amanda is outgoing and I am shy so we balance each other out perfectly. She keeps me focused on what is important, having fun as a family and enjoying every moment of life. Amanda is an amazing mother and it is truly amazing to see the special bond she and Katherine have had since day one. I know that she will an amazing mom to this child as well.
About Us: We grew up with large immediate and extended families that got together frequently. We always had someone to run, play, and laugh with and those were some of the best memories we have from childhood. We are grateful that we were raised in a loving environment where family was so important. Creating a loving environment like we had growing up is very important to us, we will make sure this child feels love and support from us and our extended family.
We both know that we would not be where we are today without the love and support of our families. It is very important to us that this child grow up feeling that too, knowing that we will be there to help them pursue their dreams and helping them knock down any barriers that might come along that path. We will inspire them to dream whatever their heart desires. They will learn by doing, seeing, and experiencing all that life has to offer.
We will be open and honest with this child about their journey to become a member of our family. We will share as much as you would like about your story and brave choice of adoption. We will share back with you the major milestones in this child’s life through pictures and letters. We feel it is important for them to know that you chose us and that we chose this child. This child will live each day knowing they are loved and supported, and has every opportunity to be whatever their heart desires.
We thank you for taking the time to read more about us and will pray for you and this child.
Brian and Amanda
