We believe adoption is the path God has chosen for us. We want to express to you our appreciation for taking the time to look at our profile. We have an immense love for children and believe we would make great parents. Choosing us to be your child's parents would mean everything to us. We hope you consider us and we look forward to the journey we are about to embark on.
Education is extremely important to both of us. With both of us being educators (Andrea is an English teacher and Jonathan is an assistant principal), we understand the value of a quality education, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that our child has access to educational opportunities of all kinds.
Our community has wonderful schools, and we have several outstanding colleges and universities within driving distance of our home. Both of us hold Master's degrees, and we want for our child to be able to pursue educational opportunities in the career field he or she chooses. We want our child to know that a price cannot be placed on an education, and that education is something that cannot be taken away.
We are both very active in sports. Jonathan coached football at our local high school for 7 years and was the head football coach at our local middle school for 4 years before taking an assistant principal job at another high school. Andrea played basketball in college. When she began her teaching career, Andrea coached volleyball for 3 years and basketball for 11 years. We were lucky enough to be able to coach softball together for 8 years. Though we are not coaching anymore, we still love going to the local sporting events.
We also enjoy going to the movies, taking spontaneous trips to the mountains, beach, or short weekend getaways, and spending time with family and friends. We have a small group of friends that we enjoy getting together with to have game nights or watch sporting events. We also enjoy going to Tuscaloosa to attend The University of Alabama football and softball games.
We love the outdoors and enjoy hiking and kayaking. Jonathan loves to golf and Andrea loves crafts and shopping.
Our dog, Baxter, is an important part of our family. Baxter is a boxer breed and was our anniversary gift to each other for our 4th anniversary. He has been a wonderful friend and companion for both of us in the four years that we have had him. Baxter is very loving and playful, and he always makes both of us feel happy and loved at the end of every day. He is great with little children, and is always letting his family know that he loves them. We love to play fetch with Baxter in our spacious yard and take him on walks. Baxter also enjoys getting his special treat of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies! Baxter adds so much to our family that it is difficult to imagine what our lives were like without him.
