We met 15 years ago through mutual friends and have been married for 7 of those years. We both have full time jobs but have plenty of flexibility to change our schedules around so we can care for a baby at home. Outside of work we really enjoy being outdoors, some of our activities include : Biking, Hiking and running. Phil also loves working on special projects for the house and Amy enjoys doing photography, some of the photos she has taken include special occasions such as weddings and birthdays
Our Home & Community
We live in a 3 bedroom ranch and have already turned one of the rooms into a nursery. Our yard is spacious and offers plenty of room for a swing set or just to run around in. Our neighborhood is filled with young families and they are all very close knit. We knew from the minute we moved here that this was the perfect place to raise a family someday. The school bus stop is even located right in front of our house. Our hope is to see our child at the same bus stop one day with their friends as we see our neighbors kids there now. We are also minutes away from a free beach and a large park.
Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption
We both come from very large families and enjoy spending time with them. Our sisters have children of their own and we adore being their Aunt and Uncle. However we still long for the day that we can hold the title of Mom and Dad and feel that adoption was the plan we never knew we wanted so much. This means having a family to call our own and being able to raise a good human being. We have talked for years about the kind of parents we would be some day and how we would always be there for our children. Our dreams of being a parent can come true because of this process and we would never take that for granted. We believe that we were meant to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and we were always meant to travel this path in life because we have so much joy, love and laughter to share. Our life as a couple has been really great thus far and we know our life as a family will be even better.
Thank you for taking the time to consider us as prospective adopting parents for your precious little one. We promise to tell your baby the truth of where they first came from and how amazing their birth mother is because she was so strong and brave and loved them so much that she chose this path. We hope your journey to finding the perfect parents for your baby is a loving one.
