Andrew & Brianna
We are Andrew and Brianna. Our story together begins in 2006. Although we went to high school together for one year, we were never acquainted until later. Andrew was in college and came home during spring break. At the time, Brianna was a volunteer (as part of a high school class) in Andrew’s nephew’s 1st grade class. Andrew came to bring the class pizza one day. On that day we met, and the rest is history. We started dating, went to college together at NC State University (go Wolfpack!), and got married in 2011. At the time we got married, Andrew was in graduate school at UNC Chapel Hill and Brianna was a teacher’s assistant. Due to Andrew’s continued education we decided to wait on having children and instead concentrate on our relationship. Which was a great decision because we now have a very wonderful relationship that only gets stronger every day. We love traveling, spending time with our dogs (Bently and Nala), spending time with our friends and their children, and going home to see our family members. Both our families live about 5 minutes apart from each other. They also spend a lot of time together when we are not there. Overall, we have an immediate family of 17 members that live very close to each other. Needless to say, but the child we adopt will have a large loving family.
In 2016, after being married for 5 years, we decided that we wanted to extend our family. We wanted to conceive a child and adopt our second child. But after a year we found out we had some fertility issues and our chances to have biological children was very low. At that time, we decided that we wanted to adopt instead of going through fertility treatment. After we made that decision, we have had such an outpouring of support from our friends and family and even from adopted families we don’t even know. The amount of love that has been shown to us during the adoption process has been astronomical. It is a true testament to God’s love. We are so excited to begin this journey with our new family member.
We are excited to welcome to our family, a boy or girl up to three months, through open, semi-open or closed adoption.
DEAR EXPECTANT MOTHER
Words cannot express how grateful we are that you are considering us to adopt your baby. We can not imagine the choice you have to make during this time. It would be an honor if you decide to go through with adoption that you would pick us to be the mother and father of your baby.
We currently do not have any children or have the ability to have any children naturally. Our family consists of us two, two dogs (Bently and Nala), and 20+ members of our immediate family, most of which live very close to us. Our family is incredibly excited about our adoption and can’t wait to show the baby the love and care that were they show to us every day. Many of our close friends are having/adopting children during this time and we can’t wait to have playdates with them.
Outside of spending time with family and friends we are looking forward to taking the baby on vacations with us. Some of our favorite places to go include Asheville, Disney World, Washington DC, and Myrtle Beach. We love going to these places and can not wait to enjoy the experience of taking our child to them for the first time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time in your life. And no matter if you pick us, someone else, or decide to keep the baby, just know that we love you and the baby.
