We cannot imagine the difficulty you are having making this decision. We hope that you can find comfort in knowing that your baby would be going to a very special family and we will raise your child to be an amazing person. We promise to give your baby the best life possible, full of love and laughter.
We are both extremely fortunate to have been raised by amazing people. Jolie’s parents raised her with unconditional love and instilled in her the strong morals and values she lives by every day. Andy was raised by his mother and grandmother, both single parents who brought him up with a strong work ethic filled with love and humility. Both of us were taught at an early age that education and hard work are the keys to success.
Jolie has always dreamed of being a mom. It is the one thing in life that we had not been able to fulfill until our prayers were answered with the birth of our adopted son almost two years ago. Jolie’s oldest brother was adopted. She feels strongly that adoption is a true blessing to a family. Before becoming a mother two years ago, Jolie built a successful business and was fortunate to have sold it and now has the best job ever; she is a full-time mom which is all she ever dreamed of and she can’t wait for another child to love.
Andy worked full time while going to college; he had three jobs when we met so he could put himself through school. Andy’s most memorable job was as a snowboard instructor. By the age of 25 he completed his MBA. He never stopped educating himself. Now he is a Certified Financial Planner and owns a successful investment management firm just 4 miles from our house. The values instilled by his grandma and mom will always drive him to accomplish more.
Our lives are full of fun and energy. Andy’s brother and sister-in-law live a few miles from us and have four children. Jolie has an extremely large extended family, most of whom live within a 30 mile radius from our home. The family gatherings are often and full of love and laughter. Our families are so excited and feel so blessed for the opportunity to welcome a new member.
We are so fortunate living where we do and being able to take time off when we want. We look forward to the day that we can love and cherish another child. We are so excited for family vacations to the lake in the summer and up to the snow in the winter. Most of all we can’t wait to love your baby and raise him or her as our own.
We want you to know how that we admire your strength and courage. We will be forever grateful to you should you decide to bless us with your child.
Andy & Jolie
