Andrew & Andrea
We are a fun, family focused couple who looks forward to surrounding a child with love and laughter. Ever since we began our relationship together, we both knew we were going to grow our family through adoption. What we can promise is that we will love your child with all our hearts every day, and they will always feel cherished and supported.
What Makes Us Unique
There are many attributes that we believe make us a unique choice as adoptive parents. One characteristic that sets us apart is our youth and energy. We love to travel and experience new things. We are both well-traveled and feel that travel experiences add to a bigger perspective on life. We would love to introduce our future child to many interesting cultures that will broaden their outlook and understanding of the world.
Another unusual fact about our family is that it's very large. We have close to 100 relatives in the state of Texas. Andrea's sisters also live in the same city as we do and get together with us regularly. The support network that our family provides is significant -- it seems like there's always a doctor, lawyer, or handyman in the family whom we can rely on for advice or help! Andrew's family isn't as large but is more widespread around the country. They are always encouraging us to visit and provide a great excuse for us to travel. We visit them every year.
Our families also believe that supporting a child's academic aspirations is extremely important, no matter what they choose to become. Our family includes doctors, lawyers, artists, scientists, and teachers, just to name a few. We believe that it is our role to support our future child to become whomever he/she wants to become.
Andrew will forever be young at heart. He loves playing around, joking, and making sure our lives don't get too serious. He always has a cool head and makes sure everyone around him is relaxed and having fun. He is Andrea's favorite person in the whole world to be around.
Andrea has a great way of lighting up whatever room she enters with enthusiasm and a smile. She has great social skills and makes sure everyone is included. She is a strong organizer, which complements Andrew's spontaneity. She always knows what to say to make Andrew feel better and can make any activity fun and interesting.
Some positive traits we share are our positive attitudes and a family first priority. We also like to be physically active: going to the gym, playing sports, or going on hikes. In addition, we both like to go exploring, travel, and try new activities like trapeze, painting, gardening together.
We believe cultural diversity should be treasured and embraced. After all, our own family is a blend of numerous backgrounds and heritages itself. We think early discussions about our child's adoption history will help make him/her secure in his/her identity, so we plan to celebrate their adoption history from the beginning. We will strive to treat a child the same regardless of his/her background and make sure they know their uniqueness is something to be proud of. Our group of friends is very diverse and will provide a great source of mentorship no matter what cultural background our future son/daughter comes from. A child in our family will experience a wide range of Spanish, Polish, Italian, and Hungarian traditions, or at the very least their food. We can't wait to learn and be enriched by another culture, and/or accept a child who is from one of our own. We will love them, no matter what.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a newly built community in the Texas hill country. While the big city isn't far, we like the friendly neighbors and quiet lifestyle in our neighborhood. There are parks and playscapes in and around our neighborhood that we love to bike to on the weekends. We are looking forward to walking our future child to the elementary school down the street from us and playing with them on the playground after school.
Our neighborhood is a very diverse place to live with a blend of cultures, ages and ethnicities. There are a lot of new families in our neighborhood, so there will be plenty of friends and mentors for a future child. The community water park has slides and a play area where we can spend hours of our time having fun and play with other children as he or she grows. We also plan to get our future son/daughter exposed to community activities like sports, Boy/Girl Scouts, and other activities so they can discover their own interests.
Our Extended Families
We believe family is extremely important. Andrea comes from a large family who are constantly in each other's lives. Our families are so excited to welcome a child and are looking forward to showering them with attention. Most of the family lives close, so we regularly get together for dinners, games, or just to hang out. During the holidays, the entire family comes together to share stories, laugh, and cook family recipes like tamales. Most of the family loves to travel and explore new places, so there is usually a large family vacation every few years.
On Andrew's side of the family, we will be able to introduce our little one to the great outdoors. Andrew grew up in the mountains of Colorado and can't wait to go explore the family farm, feed farm animals, and plant fresh vegetables in the garden. We visit Andrew's family several times a year and look forward to taking our future son/daughter hiking around the foothills. When we visit Colorado, we always make a plan to go hiking or mountain biking around the beautiful outdoors with the family.
Our families are just as excited to welcome a new family member as we are. All of the family is extremely supportive of our choice to adopt. Our future son/daughter will be loved and supported from their first moment in our family.
From Us to You
We are overjoyed with the opportunity to accept a new member into our family. Adoption is a big decision, but we have taken over two years to prepare our home and ourselves for the arrival of a future child. We know this is a big decision for you as well and want to assure you that we have the time and resources to provide a good, stable home for your child. We promise he/she will always be loved, cared for, and encouraged to the best of our abilities.
Our absolute first priority is to create a positive, fun environment where a child can thrive. We believe that one of the keys to a happy life is a loving and supportive family. Something that may set us apart from other adoptive parents is our strong family network. We have a very large family and your child will immediately be welcomed and made to feel at home. He or she will have many mentors in their life and there will be plenty of support for them throughout their development. Both of our mothers are so excited about adding a little human to our family. They are overjoyed and can't wait to shower him/her with all of the love and attention they can. They can't stop talking about all of the fun games and places they are going to take them. Our parents have always encouraged us to learn and explore new things, and we will help pass that along to the next generation.
The house and the neighborhood is probably less important than the people in a child's life, but we do think that our community is well-suited to raising a child. There are lots of children that gather every weekend at the community water park, which will be a great place for a future child to meet new friends. A good elementary school is just a short walk down the street, which will make it easier to support our child's education and get him/her involved in after-school activities. It is a safe neighborhood with tons of new families that we've gotten to know.
We have never raised a child before but we expect that watching him or her grow will be one of the greatest joys in our lives. We will keep you updated with letters and photos of your child's journey throughout their life if you desire it. We believe it's best to educate a child from a young age about their adoption story and make it a positive aspect of their lives. We will tell our future child just how much you love and will always be thinking of them.
We are both loving people who are ready to put a child first in our lives. Children bring so much laughter and love into life. We will make sure to surround our future child with unconditional love, laughter, and support. We like to travel and explore new places together and feel it is our job as parents to expose our child to these experiences. We feel it is our responsibility to help our future son/daughter find their own path in life and are looking forward to seeing who they become.
We cannot wait for this opportunity to welcome your amazing child into our lives. We will parent with love and kindness, as our parents did for us.
