Hi! We are Andy and Heather.
Our story began on a soccer field in our hometown. We were both working as middle school English teachers at different schools, and the school psychologist started a soccer team. Both of us joined, one of us more reluctantly than the other - it took Heather a little while to be convinced to join the team. Shortly after the season ended, we started dating. We married in 2013, surrounded by our closest family and friends.
We have always felt a calling to be parents. Both of us knew growing our family was going to be a wild ride, but we never realized the different twists and turns. We are taking a different journey to parenthood, one that God put us on for a reason. When we started trying to have children, we were faced with fertility issues. While exploring our options and researching, we got the feeling that we were being called to adopt. We did try treatments, but it just never felt right in our hearts. God placed adoption in our hearts and we are so thankful that He taking us on this journey. We cannot wait to share the love God placed in us with a child and the mother (or parents) who choose us.
Adoption isn’t just about us becoming parents. It is also about creating relationships, and we hope that we can have a relationship with the mother (parents or family) that chooses us.
Together has always been our favorite place to be! We love to explore the outdoors, and you can typically find us taking adventures around our state. We also love spending time with our family and close friends.
Life is all about memories and loving each other. We are excited to share our love and make memories as we grow our family!
