Minnesota! We are Amy and John. We are an easy-going fun-loving couple who are
excited to grow our family through adoption. We enjoy many hobbies together,
such as gardening, pickleball, walking our dogs, watching movies, playing
games, and traveling. We are ready and eager for our next adventure together as
for considering adoption. Your courage gives us the chance to fulfill our dream
of being parents. After going through the heartbreak of several failed
infertility treatments, we realized having biological children may not be in
the cards for us. This is when we chose to adopt, and it feels right. We believe
this may be what God had planned for us all along. We have so much to offer as
parents, and so much love to give to your child. We will love and accept your
child, unconditionally. Choosing adoption takes one of the deepest levels of
love, and we will make sure your child always knows how much you love them too.
wait to share our life with your child. We have two quirky dogs, Bella and
Marlo. They will welcome your child with open paws. We love living in
Minnesota, and are fortunate to have our family close by. They are incredibly
supportive and excited for us to adopt! We see our family often to celebrate
birthdays, holidays, and do fun activities. Your child will have plenty of kids
to play with as we have ten amazing nieces and nephews that keep us busy and
four distinct seasons bring variety to our life year-round. In the summer we
love to be outdoors grilling out, playing pickleball, and gardening. This is
prime season to feed John's passion for music with community concerts and
festivals. We also take a camping trip every summer with family where the kids
have fun swimming and Amy gets to show off her expert s’more making skills. In
the fall we love going for long walks with the dogs, taking road trips to see
the colorful fall foliage, relaxing around the house, having fires in our
backyard, and going to the apple orchard to eat apples right off the tree!
Minnesota winters bring on the magic of the holidays with beautiful snowfalls
(and snowmen and snowball fights!), drives around the city to look at Christmas
lights, cheering on the Minnesota Vikings, and cozy nights snuggling on the
couch by the fireplace eating popcorn and watching movies. We also love playing
games and winter is a great time of year to have game nights! Spring is the
start of baseball season, and we love our Minnesota Twins! We can't wait to
take your child to a game. We also love to travel and try to take one big
vacation every year. We’re excited to have adventures with your child and help
them learn about other cultures, including their own.
There is so
much we want to teach your child. Your child will learn to be resilient and
adaptable through the ups and downs of life. They will learn the value of
kindness, honesty, and responsibility (yes, they will have to do chores!). Your
child will know how much they are loved by family, friends, community, and God.
They will know the value of education and be engaged in a good school system.
They will know how to take care of themselves by eating healthy and exercising,
and they will have access to excellent healthcare where we both work. They will
learn the importance of a good work ethic, but will be encouraged to laugh and
play often (Amy loves dancing, making up songs, and being silly!). We will instill
confidence in your child and teach them to be humble despite the abundance of
opportunity they will have in their life.
That's us in
a nutshell. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, and for
considering us to be your baby's family. We are happy to answer any questions
you have. We would love to get to know you, too. Whatever decision you make for
you and your baby, we wish you both well.
Amy and John
