It’s so nice to ‘meet’ you! We can’t wait to share with you the stories, adventures, maybe even a few shenanigans, and other excitement that our family gets into. We hope that our profile allows you to see that being parents is the greatest blessing we have ever been given, and we are truly looking forward to watching all our children experience the love, joy, and laughter in our home together.
One thing you will notice about us is that we love to travel. Eight years ago we met in Dublin, Ireland, having both moved there for work. Mary moved over from the US, and Andy left his home in England, both in search of leprechauns and their pot of gold. We didn’t find that, but we did find each other. We instantly made each other laugh, and we became soul mates, best friends, and then husband and wife. As we travelled the world, it became apparent that we wanted a big family and that we thought the other would make an amazing parent. Luckily, we were right!
We’ve been blessed with two hilarious kids, Myles and Tyler, who bring us and each other a lot of happiness. With them, our days are filled with laughter, silliness, curiosity, learning, patience, and spontaneity. We know that more children will be a dream come true for our family. The newest member will benefit from our parenting experience and two older brothers to watch over them, dote on them, and share a lifelong bond with. A big family means more festive gatherings, more kids to participate in our Christmas nativity performance, and more chance someone will laugh at our jokes. Your child will never have a shortage of siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, or friends to be there for them in good times, and in bad.
We have settled into a wonderful, family-oriented suburb outside of Boston. There’s much exploration for us to do locally, with a gorgeous beach within walking distance of our house, as well as multiple playgrounds and swimming pools. We chose the town for its top-rated schools to ensure that we can give our children the best education we can provide, and also because of the strong community filled with museums, parks, and cultural events.
If you decide you want to move forward, we are open to communication with you now and later. At a minimum, if you place with us you will receive pictures and letters. We would be honored to give you insight into the fun and joys of growing up, constantly reassuring you that you made the right decision for your child. Furthermore, we can figure out what other type of contact you are comfortable with and we completely respect that these needs may change over time.
Take comfort in knowing your child will be unconditionally loved in a nurturing home, filled with humor, compassion, a great education, funny older brothers, and a mom and dad always ready to support, encourage, and cherish them. We’ll lovingly share their adoption story with them, and your child will be told how truly wonderful and blessed you were to make the tough decision for them.
Our life has been a great journey. We pray that it will be enriched by another child to love and care for. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your sacrifice. Thank you for considering us as you make your decision.
With much love,
Andrew and Mary
