Hope & Andrew

With 13 nieces and nephews and a love for how kids see the world, we've been training to be parents our whole lives! Andrew is a pilot in the U.S. Navy and Hope works from home for public relations/marketing firm, but we agree there is nothing more important than family. We also have an English bulldog puppy named Gertie who loves to play and have her belly rubbed.

We're excited to share our lives and love with a child or children (up to 2 children; ages infant to 4 yrs old). We want the child/children to receive as much love as possible, which is why we're open to keeping a relationship with you, birth mom.

Why Adoption?

We will always remember the date night where we realized we shared a dream of building a family through adoption. We believe we've been given an abundance in life from God that we want to be able to share with a child or children. Love has been demonstrated in our lives in a variety of ways, and we have a desire to share that with a child. We can't wait to become parents for the first time.

Get To Know Us

Our perfect Saturday would include playing with our puppy, Gertie, practicing yoga at our favorite studio, enjoying some iced coffee, and hitting the beach or golf course. By the end of the day, we're ready to grill out and enjoy dinner by the fire in our building's courtyard. We love home projects (Andrew loves to build furniture!) and picking out new house plants. We look forward to being able to plant our own garden one day, full of fun plants, herbs, and food! Other things we like to do include cooking new recipes, reading fiction novels, listening to NPR podcasts on long drives, and playing board games with our nieces and nephews. Andrew hopes to attend law school in the future; he dreams of helping people navigate out of tough financial situations. Hope waited tables for many years and loved the experience so much, she dreams of opening her own restaurant on day.

Our Home & Community

We live in a cozy and bright two bedroom, two bathroom apartment just one block from the beach. The building is very secure and features a swimming pool in an outdoor courtyard that is heated so it stays open all year round! We can walk or bike to lots of shops, restaurants and things to do. One day, we hope to own a home with a big backyard and front porch. We have big families with lots of kids, many of whom live within an hour's drive of our apartment. We spend a lot of weekends together, from birthday parties and graduations to movie nights and just stopping by to say hello. We hope to have a family of multiple children, both adopted and biological.

What We're All About

We value our marriage, friendships and family relationships above all else. Everything we do, say, and strive for is inspired by our love for God and the love He has for us. Our family and friends would describe us as caring, justice-oriented, responsible, light-hearted, and kind. We are each other's best friends and will do everything we can to model and teach our family about what it means to be love and be loved well. We also greatly value education and vow to make it a priority for our kids.
