Our names are Amanda, Chris, and Isaac. Thank you for considering our profile. We were married in 2007 and our son, Isaac, was born in 2011. Our dream for our family is to have another child. We tried to have another child but were unable to conceive again. After we brought this desire to God, we felt that He called us to pursue adoption. Chris is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force, and I'm an at home mom. Chris has degrees in engineering, but aspires to be an artist and inventor in his free time. He is the Assistant Den Leader for Isaac's Cub Scout den. I taught high school English and was a technical writer. I have a degree in journalism and a teaching certification. I love to read, participate in Bible studies, and volunteer at Isaac's school. Isaac is in elementary school and loves LEGOs, drawing, and playing survival skills outside. He's excited to be a big brother and wants to teach his sibling how to read and talk. Chris and I are teaching Isaac's Sunday School class. Our favorite family activities are backyard campfires, bike rides, camping, and learning and exploring new places. We prefer open adoption, since we feel that this provides the best opportunity for the child to feel comfortable with the adoption process and how we are truly bringing our families together. We hope that you will consider us for the next steps. We believe that God is writing our adoption story and are excited for our family to grow.
