Thank you for reading our profile and taking the time to get to know our family. We believe it is an honor and a privilege to be chosen as adoptive parents and that you are brave and compassionate for considering this path for your child. While this may not be an easy journey we think the best way to approach anything in life is with love, honesty, and open communication. Although our paths up to this point may differ from yours, we share the same goal of providing this child with a loving, safe, and happy home. We realize that families are created from people with a variety of personalities, experiences, and perspectives. It's important to us that everyone in our family knows that they have the right to love and be loved unconditionally, that they own and are in charge of their life story, that we will guide them in pursuing their education and passions, and that we will always honor and respect the role that adoption plays in all of our lives. We are blessed with two biological children of our own and have always wanted to grow our family through adoption. We have discussed adoption for many years, always knowing that it would be a part of our journey. Our kids are especially excited to welcome another child into our family and we can't wait to watch them grow up together. We hope this profile gives you a glimpse of our family and we would love to have the opportunity to meet you and share more about our lives, values, and hopes for this child.

More About Our Family

We have been together the past 15 years and have been married since 2010. We have two children - Sydney (4 years old) and Weston (2 years old). We live in a 4 bedroom house on a cul-de-sac with a great backyard and swing set for the kids. We have a very friendly black lab named Riley and he is 6 years old. Sydney is incredibly thoughtful, creative, and kind in everything she does. She loves arts and crafts, puzzles, bike rides, and recently started playing soccer. She is the absolute best big sister. Wes is our family comedian and daredevil. He loves to climb and explore and is never far behind his big sister. He also loves to snuggle on the couch with blankets and stuffed animals and watch his favorite movie, Coco. We both work full-time and Aubrie is also in school part-time pursuing a nursing degree. Sydney goes to pre-school and Wes goes to daycare. A typical evening might include puzzles, play-dough, yoga, or a trip to the local ice cream shop. We always end our night by reading books together. Throughout our relationship we've always shared a sense of adventure. The opportunities we've had to travel the world have opened our eyes to many different people, cultures, ideas, and ways of life. These experiences have helped shape who we are as people and parents. We strive to always see the best in everyone without judgement and teach our children the same. Above all, we believe that kindness is the most important quality a person can have. Regardless of life experiences, beliefs, education, or wealth everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

More About Andy

The best quality about Andy is his ability to put others before himself. He is the type of person that family and friends turn to for advice, a good laugh, or to listen and provide support. Andy has been in the Air National Guard since he was 17 years old, which has contributed to his strong work ethic and ability to lead. He is driven and enjoys setting goals for himself and for the family that help us move forward together. Andy's favorite thing to do is plan our next adventure. He's always the one finding a new hiking trail nearby or researching a new place for a family vacation. Above all, my favorite thing about Andy is that he doesn't take himself too seriously and will do anything to make our kids laugh. Our family, and especially our kids, know that Andy will always be there for us.

More About Aubrie

When someone spends time with Aubrie, they will likely notice her passion for people, desire for adventure, and dry sense of humor. She truly cares for the people in her life and works hard to always be there for her friends and family. While she's a great listener and always willing to help, she's just as likely to say something sarcastic and straightforward to put a smile on your face. As an amazing wife, mom, and friend, Aubrie is always striving for new experiences. She enjoys trying trendy new restaurants for date night or making interesting recipes at home with the kids. She loves spending time outdoors, reading a book at the beach, and traveling whenever possible. Her passion for life and those around her is incredible to watch and makes me a better person every day.
