We are Michele and Andy! We would like to begin by expressing our admiration for the strength it takes on your behalf to pursue an adoption plan for your baby. We have great respect for your courageous decision that is obviously a result of the great love you have for your child. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and paint a picture of what life with our family would be like for your baby. We are humbled to be considered as adoptive parents and would love nothing better than to provide your baby with the best life possible. You can reach us toll free by calling 1-800-626-4324.
I am smiling when I tell you that Andy and I have been happily married for 9 years and live in upstate New York. We met through mutual friends at a comedy show. We both enjoy the outdoors whether it be bike riding, running, skiing, snowboarding or hiking with our dog Stella. Staying active, fit and having fun outdoors are important parts of our lifestyle. We cannot wait to introduce a little one to the joys of outdoor adventures.
For the past twenty years, Andy has owned and operated an informational technology business which services local restaurants and retail businesses. I am a high school math teacher and have taught at the same school for 18 years. My students bring me great joy with their energy, personality and sincerity. Through my experience, I have seen firsthand how important a stable home is to a child’s education. Andy and I look forward to providing your child with a loving and supportive home and give them every opportunity for success at school.
My relationship with Andy is loving, kind and nurturing. Andy has a warm smile that shows his genuine personality. He is a very hard worker, who thankfully can build and fix just about anything. I am amazed by his kindness, patience and loyalty. Where Andy would say my best traits are my strength, honesty and compassion. Together we feel that we are an incredible team and look forward to working together in raising a child. We enjoy the time we spend together immensely but feel that having a child in our lives will bring us a joy like we’ve never imagined.
We have always wanted to have a family and have been trying to have children since we married in 2006. We have been exploring adoption due to infertility, and feel that adopting a child would be a great blessing to us. We’re ecstatic at the thought of becoming parents and providing unconditional love, guidance, and security to a child. We were chosen to be godparents to our good friend’s first born daughter. We have taken the responsibility seriously and have provided her with love, support and guidance with her faith. We are also blessed to be involved in the lives of many of our friend’s children. We have had the pleasure of seeing them play in their first football game and sing in their first concert at school. We have seen up close the rewards as well as challenges in raising a child and we realize just how ready we are to have a family. We are so eager to adopt your child and continue our journey as nurturing parents.
Our extended family has always meant so much to us. Andy grew up with loving and supportive parents who were always there for him. They have played an important role in assisting with the informational technology business and helping to restore our home. My mother was a hard-working single parent who had me as a teenager. My grandparents raised me and have provided me with love, support and guidance. My grandmother is a pillar of strength whose kindness, humility and faith has served as a role model to me throughout my life. Coming from such kind, caring and compassionate families has given both of us a wonderful respect and devotion to becoming a loving family.
Andy and I will both take an active role in parenting. Our parenting style will be one of love and patience, open communication, nurturing, encouragement, and instilling proper ethics and moral values. Education will be emphasized as we feel that a good education is a stepping stone for future opportunities and success. We will encourage and support a child’s individuality with regard to hobbies, sports, music and/or other extra-curricular activities.
We can’t tell you how much a baby would fulfill our lives. It’s something that we’ve dreamed of for many years. We would like to help you in your journey by giving your heart a sense of peace and joy in knowing that your child would be a loved and cherished part of our family. We share a common bond and that is the happiness and best life possible for your child. If you would like to receive pictures and updates, we would be happy to provide them so you can see your child grow and thrive. We wish you all the best in making this very important decision and thank you for reading our story. If you would like to contact us, please call The Adoption Alliance at 1-800-626-4324. We look forward to hearing from you.
Michele and Andy
