dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about us and our lives. We cannot even pretend to know how overwhelming and hard this decision must be for you. All we can say is, without your sacrifice, we would not be able to be parents, and that is all we have ever dreamed of. We are here for you, and we feel respect and admiration for you. We are very thankful you are considering adoption for your baby, a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly and must be extremely difficult for you.

If we are lucky enough to have you choose us as parents for your child, you have our promise that we will raise them in a safe environment surrounded by all the love we can give. We promise to teach them kindness and responsibility and to help them grow into who they were meant to be. We will stand behind them and support them in whatever they decide to do in life. Whatever sports they pick, we will be right there at each game rooting them on, win or lose. We will help them realize their worth and true potential.

We will say a prayer on their birthday every year thanking God for you, your generosity, and your selfless act. Thank you for considering us.

We are very thankful you are considering adoption for your baby, a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly and must be extremely difficult for you.

About Us

We have been together for eight years and married for six. Amanda was working at church in childcare and needed help. The woman hired ended up being Kathryn. Amanda was a certified dental assistant for thirteen years; she now takes care of the household and dogs. Kathryn works as a CNC jig grinder, where she’s been for eight years, and she also attends college and is on the dean’s list and in multiple honor societies; she will graduate as a cybersecurity hacker. We enjoy walking and traveling with our dogs and vacation two to four times a year. Our favorite place is Florida. We are Chicago Cubs fans and enjoy a weekend of sightseeing, museums, and a Cubbies game. We enjoy going to farmers markets and festivals. We are financially stable and ready to open our home and hearts to a child.

Our Home & Pets

We moved into Amanda’s childhood home in a cul-de-sac. In the fenced-in backyard, there’s a path that takes us to a pool club, where we are members. In the next cul-de-sac, there is a path that brings us to a park with many amenities and playground equipment. This is an extremely safe neighborhood located in our city's Blue Ribbon school district. Blizzard, our husky, is very expressive and quite hilarious. We lost our sweet Miracle, our sheltie, last April. Although we miss her dearly, we decided to adopt another sheltie, a sweet puppy named Baxter! Holly, our beagle, has quite the personality, with weird poses and silly faces. We cannot imagine a life without dogs.

Our Extended Family

Amanda had a big family growing up but has lost quite a few family members over the past eight years, including her parents. Amanda still has one brother and his wife, whom she is close to. Also, her grandmother lives a short distance away in Indiana. She has an aunt and uncle and a few cousins who live in Chicago, so whenever we go to catch a Cubs game, we try to get together. We are also blessed with some good friends we consider family, and we have a few good friends in other states we like to visit when we travel.

Kathryn’s parents live fifteen minutes from us and have a nice house with a pool in the back. We look forward to the barbeques in the summer while the dogs roam the yard, and we can’t wait to see your little one interact with them! Kathryn has two uncles who live in Florida. We went to visit them two years ago and cannot wait to go back.

What Led Us To Adoption

After many failed fertility attempts, we knew we had to find another way to fulfill our lifelong dream of being parents. From day one, we both knew being parents was important to us. As an adopted child herself, Amanda knows a little about the process and has a different perspective and appreciation for the beauty of adoption. We feel like there is a missing piece to our story. We can’t wait and are hopeful we will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and make our family complete.
