Justin & Amanda

Adoption is an incredible blessing that we cannot be more thankful for. Without the option of adopting, we would not be able to fulfill our dream of becoming parents. We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to look over our profile and considering us as a part of this journey. Having a child will mean the world to us and fill our hearts more than we could ever imagine.

Our Leisure Time

Go Broncos!

In our leisure time, you can usually find us doing updates to our house, attending sporting events or traveling. With Justin's background in construction, we are always looking at ways to improve our house and enjoy spending time together working on projects and see them come to fruition.

We also attend many sporting events throughout the year, mainly college football, volleyball and baseball, but always try to catch some type of game when we are traveling. We currently have season football tickets to the local University and regularly attend their volleyball and baseball matches/games.

When we want to get away, we like to travel to different cities/states and explore. We recently decided that we would like to visit all of the National Parks throughout the U.S. We try to make getaways a frequent occasion to allow us to unwind and break out of our daily routines.

When we are in town, we like to go out to eat at new/different restaurants around town. We keep a list of restaurants we would like to visit and use that list to decide where to have our weekly date nights.

Education We will Provide

Amanda is a continual learner and loves to read. She cannot wait to share her passion of learning and exploring with a child. We greatly believe in the importance or learning within school and learning outside of school. Going on trips to learn about different cities/cultures or simply going to a museum to learn about dinosaurs can be just as valuable as the education a child gets at school.

Being three miles outside of our city, we will have the option of choosing whether or not we would like our children to attend the larger city schools or the small town schools. Schooling can be a very individual process; therefore, we will decide based on the needs of the child. While we do believe in the child finishing high school, we do not want to limit their abilities or options for schools after high school. We would be very happy to see our child go to a trade school, university or whatever they have their mind set to.

Why We Chose Adoption

We Can't Wait to be Parents!

Amanda was diagnosed with two chronic illnesses when she was 4 years old. Despite living a normal life now, the many procedures and surgeries she endured led to difficulty conceiving a child naturally. Early on in our relationship, we had discussed the possibility of not having biological children and discussions quickly turned to adoption, so when Amanda's doctor informed us how difficult it could be for her to carry a child, we knew immediately that we wanted to adopt.

Both of us have always had an affinity for children and knew it was not about how we got the child, but more about the journey of raising a child/children. Adoption gives us the ability to become parents and also allows us to raise a child to become the best person they can be. Because of adoption, we finally have the chance to become loving parents to a child or children.

Our Extended Families

Volleyball Game with Amanda's Parents

Family is extremely important to both of us. Justin is the oldest of three boys. Between his two brothers we have one niece and one nephew who we enjoy spending time with. Amanda is the youngest of two girls, but also grew up with her step-brother from the age of 7. Her sister lives in Texas with her husband and son, so we don't get to see them as often. Justin's parents and Amanda's mother and stepfather live in town and Amanda's Dad and stepmother live an hour away.

Vegas with Justin's Family

We look forward to get togethers, which typically happen at least twice a month with our families either eating, celebrating, or just catching up. At regular get togethers with family or friends you'll often see us gathered around talking, eating, playing board games or enjoying sporting events on television.

Holidays are also very important to us and our families. We gather together at our homes, surrounded by food, and good company. For the Christmas season, you'll find us out looking at Christmas lights, having baking competitions and see our home decorated to the brim! Both our families are filled with joy and excitement that we are adopting. They cannot wait to see us as parents, as well as being able to spoil more grandchildren.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

Our home sits on 20 acres of land. Included on our property, we have our home and what we call "The Shed," which is a converted multi-use building where Justin's extended family gets together regularly for dinners, sports games, and celebrations (bridal showers, birthday parties, holidays, etc.). Our home has 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. Our common areas are our living room, dining room, and kitchen. For larger gatherings, we have an open basement, with a walk-out patio.

Local Playground

We are conveniently five minutes away from the city limits, giving us the opportunity to send our child to a small-town school or larger, city school. Just three miles away are two elementary schools, a middle school and a YMCA, which has a large outdoor water area/pool.

Our city population is around 250,000 people, but it has a very small town feel and is great for raising children. We have a local children's museum and a children's zoo, which holds many additional kid friendly events throughout the year. There are many libraries, as well as a small water park, and many sports leagues. We can’t wait to enjoy these places with our child!

From Us to You

We both would like to thank you for taking the opportunity to look through our profile. We cannot imagine how difficult of a decision this is, but would like you to know that your child will be loved unconditionally, and forever. We can and will give the child a safe, stable, fun, and loving home.

A bit about us…We met while working out. Amanda's sister introduced us to one another and we immediately felt much at ease with one another, laughing and telling our lives' stories. We have been together for six years now and married for two. In that time, we have started slowly renovating our house - so far, the outside patio, basement and master bath have been completed. We have also adopted two dogs. Bailey is a black lab, who has a lovable motherly personality. And Zoey who is a border collie mix, who has an energetic, spunky personality that has kept us on our toes.

Justin is a project manager for a commercial construction company in our town. In Justin's free time he enjoys golfing with his friends and family, woodworking and various projects around the house. Amanda is a registered nurse in the intensive care unit at one of our city's hospitals. She is currently pursuing her masters to become a nurse practitioner. In Amanda's free time she enjoys reading, spending time with her best friend and spoiling the children in her life.

Amanda was diagnosed with 2 chronic illnesses at the age of 4 and after many procedures and surgeries, her doctor advised her not to carry a child. We had discussed this possibility early on in our relationship and quickly knew that adoption was the route we wanted to go. We both have always wanted to have children and always enjoy our time around our niece, nephews and friends' children. We are the adults that are always spending more time with the kids at get-togethers than the adults. We have always had an affinity for children and the opportunity to raise children, as they have always brought joy to our lives.

As adoptive parents, we feel it is important to inform and educate the child at an early age about their adoption and how they are lucky enough to have biological parent(s) and adoptive parents. We feel that communication with you is important so the child will know and understand their history and family. As a part of this communication we will send letters/emails and photos to you to keep you involved in the child's life.

We cannot express into words how much children have continually touched our lives, and we believe whatever child lands in our arms will be no different. The innocence, curiosity, and pure joy of a child is contagious.

Our role as parents will be to help the child grow, learn and thrive in whatever they choose to do. As parents, we want to prepare the child for each chapter of their life. It is just as important to us that the child be able to enjoy each one of their life's chapters to the fullest extent possible.

Thank you again for taking the time to read our profile. We wish you all the best as you continue on this journey.

With love,

Justin & Amanda
