About Us/Me

We are Andrew and Melinda. We have been married for 15 years.

 

Andrew is a staff pastor at a church and oversees family, children and youth ministry. He has a passion for people and has always loved kids. He previously spent 10 plus years working in the music industry. He loves music and has always been heavily involved with teaching music to all generations and currently spends time teaching kids multiple instruments.

 

Melinda is a legal assistant, and has worked in law and finance for most of her career. She has also been a children's ministry director and overseen programs and staff for preschool and elementary kids. She has a massive heart for teaching, and shepherding kids and families. One of her passions is helping kids see how special and loved they are.

 

We spend a lot of time these days on the baseball field. Helping coach, watching games, or cheering on our kids. We love to be outside, hiking, biking, and spending time at the beach.

 

We always knew adoption would be part of our story. A month after we got married we were told we would not be able to have biological children. Amazingly enough, despite many medical complications, we were able to have three boys.

 

We both have a tremendous desire to be adoptive parents. The timing is perfect in our lives to begin this journey of adoption, and we have open hearts and arms to love.  We are sincerely excited for it. We see adoption as a beautfiul picture of a birth mom and adoptive parents connecting in order to care for, love, and guide children to a wonderful life that we know they can have, and hope deeply that they will have. We promise to give our best selves to you and let love lead the way. 

 

About You

We just want to begin by acknowledging the difficult circumstances that may have led you to look at us. We cannot imagine the emotions you must be feeling, but we hope you feel well-loved and well-supported in these moments and days ahead. We want you to know above anything else, we admire your decision to choose life and your courage to consider an adoption plan. We realize how difficult the road you are walking may feel, and we truly hope that whether you go forward with an adoption plan or choose to parent your child yourself, that you feel loved and supported. Our hope is that you will know that we want to be a source of strength and comfort for you. We want to celebrate alongside you the LIFE that you are carrying inside you, as well as the courage that you carry.
