Josh & Amanda


Thank you for taking the time to consider us for the great honor of raising your child.

We have a unique, loving relationship. Our friends and family say we are the Ying to each other's Yang. Our faith is important to us. We strive to put Christ first in our relationship and in our everyday lives and experiences. Because we both choose to put Christ first, we rarely have disagreements with each other.

Not too long after we met, during one of our late night talks, we discovered we both have always wanted to adopt a child. We talked and prayed about it; We discussed it in premarital counseling. Joe, our pastor, told us to set a timeline. We said we wanted to start the process five years after we get married.

We are blessed to be surrounded by loving family and friends. We are excited to extend that love to a child and start our family. We love children and are thrilled to have the opportunity to become parents.

Although this is a happy and exciting time for us, we realize that it may not be for you. We want you to know that we care very much for you and your unborn child. We would also like you to know how much we respect and admire the decision you are making.
