We’re Here for You


Nate and Amanda

Dear Birthmother,

First of all, we want to thank you for your courageous decision to consider adoption for your child.  We understand this is quite possibly the most difficult decision you have ever had to make.  Even though we cannot imagine all the emotions you are feeling, we want to reassure you that there is a solution.  We realize you are looking for a wonderful home and want the best future possible for your little one.  We want you to know your child will be ok.  Your child will be loved, provided for, and cared for.  We want to share our lives with your child and hope you will consider allowing us the privilege to become your child’s parents. In the end, even if you don’t choose us, we wish you a blessed life.

About Us

Our families were friends long before we ever met. We came face to face with each other for the first time when Amanda’s parents threw her a birthday party and invited the church youth group. At the time, we didn’t give each other much thought as we lived in separate states. But, soon after, Amanda moved to Oregon. Between camping trips & family Friday night dinners, we became friends. We became best friends over coffee, laughter, and long conversations. While we are very different in personality, our sense of humor and core beliefs were/are the same. Our friendship developed into more and 2 years later, in 2009, we were married in a beautiful fall ceremony.  To this day, we remain best friends and still have regular coffee dates.

Nate is more of an introvert but is steadfast in all he does. I believe love is a choice and knew when he chose to love me, he would never be moved. He loves God and loves his family. I have often witnessed him putting other’s needs before his own.  I love that he can fix anything I break, is my protector, keeps me grounded, and makes me laugh out loud daily. On a bad day, a hug from him can make it all better. He truly is my best friend.

Amanda has a beautiful and outgoing personality and is always the life of the party.  She loves to have fun and is sincerely my best friend.  She has created a warm loving home that I look forward to coming back to each day.  She loves children and always makes sure everyone around her is comfortable and happy.  I am looking forward to bringing children into our home because I know her caring and nurturing qualities will make her a wonderful mother.  I appreciate her love for her friends, family, and her deep love for God.

Our Home / Community

Our goal is to make our home comfortable and welcoming to all who would visit. Our house is located in a quiet suburb, in a family neighborhood. It has three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.  The home also includes an open kitchen where we love to hang out and prepare meals together, and a family room where we relax.  Next to the kitchen is a dining room and a living room.  We have a fenced back yard with a large covered patio where we spend lots of summer evenings enjoying the weather, swinging in the hammock, and having BBQs.  We are about 10 minutes away from our church and are involved in church activities weekly.  We are also within two hours of the Oregon Coast or the beautiful mountains and enjoy outdoor activities near our home. 

Family Activities / Traditions

Family is a large part of our weekly lives. Thankfully, our parents and siblings all live within 15 minutes from us so a quick drop in or extended visit is always an easy thing. Nate’s family even attends the same church, While not perfect, we are both close with our families as well as each other’s. We often plan activities or meals together.  Birthdays and holidays are always celebrated big! We love to travel, camp, and do other outdoor activities with our families. We laugh, play games, and have fun.  Your child would be joining a loving family that is eager for a new member to join.  Your child will have uncles, aunts, cousins, and grandparents who are already eager to spoil with gifts and affection.   

Our Adoption Journey

We love kids. We each only have 1 sibling and have always dreamed of a houseful of children. Unfortunately, we have been unable to conceive. After many scans and appointments, Amanda was diagnosed with PCOS. A condition which can make conception and even carrying a baby difficult to impossible.  Fertility treatments were an option we explored, but ultimately, after mush prayer and counseling with our Pastor and family, we felt as if adoption was the journey for us.
