A Letter from Andy & Kristin
We are so excited about the opportunity to become first-time parents through adoption! From the beginning of our marriage, we knew that there were infertility issues. We feel as if God has opened the door for us to provide a warm and loving home for your child.
We met in the winter of 2013. We were both out competing in one of our favorite weekend hobbies; coed softball. It was God’s divine intervention that we ran into each other a few weeks later doing the same thing. After our first date, we have not been apart since.
We enjoy playing golf, taking the boat out on the lake, finding great places to eat, and sightseeing with our family and friends. We are beyond excited to share our love and fun with your child!
I am so lucky to have such a wonderful man as a husband. Andy is someone that anyone can love. From his easygoing personality to his calm and gentle demeanor, you just can’t help but love him. He has given me the ability to feel an extraordinary amount of joy and see things in a light that I didn’t know existed.
Andy enjoys being social on the weekends by going out to watch or play a baseball game, working on his saltwater tank, and going for a motorcycle ride. Andy will be a wonderful father, teaching your child everything that they need to know, and he looks forward to sharing daily learning experiences along with playing ball, and going to visit the snow or beaches with him or her.
Kristin is the most giving, loving, kindhearted woman I’ve come to know. Her face and infectious smile light up the room. Everywhere we go people are always complimenting her on how beautiful she is. She is deeply rooted in family and I love how outspoken she is. It makes communicating in our marriage so much easier. She can take lemons and make lemonade. She has listened to what God has placed on her heart and opened up her entire being to pursue adoption.
I know Kristin will be a phenomenal mother and already enjoy watching her interact with friends and family’s children. She is filled with a love of sports and the outdoors. Her playfulness, inability to create a sense of comfort and natural nurturing is the thing I’m most excited to see her share with your child.
Our family is large and spread out through California and the east coast. We enjoy taking multiple trips throughout the year to maintain a close bond with our families. Kristin grew up in a small rural town as an only child in a loving family. Andy grew up as an island boy and is the youngest in his family.
We have a very close-knit and supportive extended family. Everyone is so very excited to welcome your child into the family to be able to spoil and spend time with them during family camping trips, annual golf tournament, and especially around the holidays.
Our lovely 5 bedroom, two-story home is located in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood in California. We have large grassy areas in both the front and backyard perfect for playing all sorts of sports and games. Additionally, the backyard has a large in-ground pool (with a security fence) that we enjoy in the summer.
Our town is in a close-knit area with many military members. We are also a hop skip and a jump away from mountains and ocean beaches which we enjoy visiting when we can.
We promise that your child will grow up knowing who you are and how much you love him or her. We are committed to offering your child a bright future full of love, happiness, and stability. We promise to raise them in a joyous environment surrounded by loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
More than anything, we promise to raise your child to be confident, compassionate, and kind. We will celebrate their strengths and victories, and we will provide love and support through life’s inevitable struggles. They will grow up knowing that all we want is for them to be true to who they are. Whether they are an artist, a scientist, a ballet dancer, a football player, or anything in-between, we will be behind them as their biggest cheerleaders every step of the way.

|Our Special Interests|
We enjoy playing a round of golf, being out on the softball field playing in an all-day tournament, spending the day out of the lake, fishing, tent/RV camping, traveling, playing games and hanging out around the pool and campfire with our friends and family.
Our faith is a very important part of our lives. We both are actively involved in a variety of church ministries. In addition, we believe that it is our faith that has led us to our adoption journey. We have been blessed beyond measure in so many ways throughout our life together and in return, we put forth the utmost effort to be a blessing to and love others in the way that God intended.
