We are so grateful you are taking the time to get to know a little about us. We are very blessed to have this opportunity to adopt. With the difficult decision you have ahead of you, we want to hopefully provide you with some comfort in knowing that we will love your child and give them a wonderful home. Your consideration provides hope to our dream of one day being called Mom and Dad.
We live in the mountains near several rivers and lakes, so we enjoy being outdoors, when the weather is nice, and spending time with our dogs. We love taking them for walks and going camping. We often take our kayaks out to float down the river and go fishing. Michael, especially, has gotten into fishing more the last couple of years and often goes with his dad too. Michael's parents have a pool, so we go there pretty often during the summer to swim, grill out, and just enjoy relaxing in the sun by the pool. Several of Michael's cousins, aunts and uncles live close by too, so that usually leads to a big get-together.
We will also get together pretty often to play board games or try to escape from an Escape Room game. (We've completed about 10 and have escaped each time!) Amy also really enjoys gardening, doing painting projects with friends or her sister, and (when there's time) working on sewing a quilt or doing different craft projects.
Amy About Michael: Michael is my very best friend! I couldn't imagine my life without him in it. We met in a summer college class and started dating a few years later. Since then we've only grown closer. He is always the one I go to talk about my day and can always make me laugh with his silly sense of humor. I know he will become a great dad, and cannot wait to see him experience this new chapter of our lives. I can see him one day being the coach of our child's team, or a scout leader.
Michael About Amy: Amy truly takes care of all of us. I don't know if I could find my shoes without her! Its the everyday things she does that show me what a great mother she would be. I love that she is always ready to find new ways to build our relationship and our friendship. She dedicates herself to the things she loves, and being a parent would be everything to her.
We love going to the beach each year for a summer vacation. The last couple years we have rented a nice, family friendly condo right on the beach with room for our family to join us too, if they could. We also got to bring our dogs with us and let them play on the beach. They really seem to enjoy it -- especially Lady, who loved rolling in the sand and digging for clams. She could stay out on the beach all day long! It's a good way for us to relax and still have our family and fur-babies with us. We may go out in the evening to eat or watch a show, but we mostly enjoyed just grilling out/cooking together at the condo and enjoying the scenery. It's a special place for us already, but what would make it even more special is when we have a little one to bring along with us. We can't wait to play in the sand, teach them to swim, and run along the beach. It's something we've been looking forward to for a long time.
