Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: Texas

dear expectant mother

We would like to thank you for taking the time to look into our lives and learn a little bit about us. We cannot begin to understand what you are experiencing during this process, but we have open arms no matter your situation and are truly honored you took the time to read this. Please know that in our home, a baby will be nothing short of spoiled and raised with so much love, laughter, and support to pursue his or her dreams and desires in any way they are most comfortable. It has been our dream to have a big family with children running around and making things chaotic in the best way!

We have such a large support group of family members and friends who are almost as excited as we are to be a part of this child’s life. Most of our close friends have young children who would make for lifelong friends! We love to travel and learn from different ways of life and would invest this back into our children to fully experience all they can. We look forward to teaching and sharing those experiences with a new family member, and we will invest our hearts and souls into them. Should you choose us, there is no way on earth we could thank you enough for your decision, but please know we would be so grateful for you giving us the opportunity to become parents.

Please know that in our home, a baby will be nothing short of spoiled and raised with so much love, laughter, and support to pursue his or her dreams and desires in any way they are most comfortable.

About Us

We are Evan and Andrew. We are silly and goofy and make each other laugh daily. Evan is a firefighter/paramedic, and Andrew works in marketing. We’ve been to 12 countries so far and attempt to visit a new country every year! As music lovers, we both play instruments. You can catch us singing in the car (however good or bad we might sound). Artistically gifted, Andrew draws and Evan builds things. We enjoy fantasy and sci-fi books and movies, especially superhero movies! We LOVE dinosaurs and hope our children do too! Every summer, Evan volunteers at a youth camp that he’s attended for 22 years. Evan plays in soccer leagues while Andrew cheers him on. Recently we have started baking! We hope to inspire and encourage our children to experience new things and find their own passions.

Our Home & Pets

We share our home with two cats and a dog we rescued. They have some personalities! We have a large backyard for our dog to race around. Our cats love to cuddle; Stevie lies on us when we’re sitting down, and Ronin sleeps in bed with us every night. Our home is a modern farmhouse style nestled in a neighborhood full of trees, beauty, and charm. We live in a large, diverse metroplex that is one of the most sought after countrywide. There are so many things to experience nearby, from entertainment and sports to parks within walking distance, top schools and universities, and museums, businesses, and inspiration from every background and culture.

Our Extended Family

We are extremely lucky as almost all of our extended family lives nearby. We are both very close with our families. We have a family get-together at least every month or two to celebrate birthdays and holidays.

Andrew has three younger sisters, while Evan is the baby and has two older sisters. Andrew helped to raise two of his sisters and has a close relationship with both. We value family interaction and spend lots of time together. We also have a strong network of friends we consider family and regularly spend time with them and their young children.

We love spending holidays together, and Andrew’s grandma makes a special traditional dish every year; every Halloween we visit, and she makes homemade potato and dumpling soup! Evan’s mom and sister are both amazing chefs and cook regularly for work, one as a baker and one as a personal assistant. We can’t wait to be able to include a child into our big families.

What Led Us To Adoption

It has been a dream of ours to start a family together, and every time we hold or play with our friends’ kids, it only increases that desire to build our family. We began when we got married and introduced our pets into our lives. Now we are ready to take the next step and fill our home with laughter and welcome our first child (hopefully the first of many) into our home. Since we cannot have children by ordinary means, we are excited to adopt to spoil and share our love and silliness as we build memories together. The stories shared with us by friends who have gone through adoption, are currently going through, or were adopted themselves only inspire us on our journey.
