Andrew and Kim are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Dear Birth Family,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our profile. Words cannot express the respect and admiration we have for the difficult decision you have made to consider adoption. Your selflessness and love will be an important part of your child’s story. We want your child to know that your sacrifice allowed them to have two loving families.

We have always wanted children, biologically and through adoption. After several years of infertility, we decided that now was the time to complete our family through adoption. We have room in our home and in our hearts for a child. We look forward to learning and growing as a family.

We are excited for the adventures that a child will bring into our lives. Your choice provides you the opportunity to give the greatest gift, which we will be eternally grateful for. Thank you for reading our profile and getting to know us. We look forward to meeting you and sharing in the exciting journey ahead.

Gratefully,

Andrew & Kim

About Us

We first met at Lake Forest College in 2006 and quickly became good friends.  Soon after, we began dating and have been inseparable since. In 2013, we had a beautiful wedding with lots of friends and family.  

Shortly after we got married, we moved into our home and picked up our Goldendoodle, Lucy, that same day! We have loved making our house into a home, and can’t wait to welcome a child into it.

I grew up in the west suburbs of St. Louis with my parents and brother.  As a child, I enjoyed playing soccer, basketball, baseball, and spending time with friends.  I enjoyed school and learning new things.

Andrew’s Thoughts on Kim

Kim is a compassionate, loving, smart, and thoughtful person. I love her ability to empathize with others, her sense of humor, her work ethic, and her mental and emotional strength.

Throughout our relationship, she has continually surprised me with her ability to stay strong and overcome any and all obstacles. She is highly self-motivated and doesn’t hesitate to take on responsibility for things that need to be done both professionally and in our personal lives. One of the things that brought us together in college was our compatible senses of humor that allowed us to always be laughing together.

She is great with children in her career as a 5th grade teacher. She puts great effort into her planning and teaching to ensure all of her students are instilled with a love of learning. She is also amazing with our nephews and niece. She takes the time to get down on the floor with them to play, pretend, and read them books.

Kim’s Thoughts on Andrew

Andrew is the best person I know.  He is loving, caring, compassionate, level-headed, intelligent, funny, and so much more.  He makes me laugh and smile every day. I love that he is driven to do well at work and be the best husband possible.

Andrew is athletic and enjoys spending time outdoors.  He likes watching baseball in the summer and hockey in the winter.  He loves spending time hitting golf balls at the driving range or out on the green.

Andrew can’t wait to be a father. He is extremely loving and caring to our niece and nephews, treating them as one of his own children.  He enjoys reading to them, helping them explore their curiosities, and teaching them how to play sports.

All About Lucy

Breed: Golden Retriever/Poodle (Goldendoodle)

Age: 5

Favorite Place: Anywhere with people and/or dogs

Favorite things: Stuffed animals, tennis balls, treats, Puppucinos

Our Thoughts on Lucy

Lucy is the sweetest dog we’ve ever met. She is lovable, and has never met anyone she didn’t want to be best friends with. She loves all children and other dogs.  She enjoys playing, getting belly rubs, giving kisses, and sleeping in our bed.

Our Hopes

We can’t wait to add a child to our family.  We have so much love to give. We were both very fortunate to be raised in loving homes with both parents and siblings. We hope to provide a nurturing and supportive home that will allow our child to learn and grow.

We plan to provide the best education with many diverse learning opportunities. We plan to teach them about their background including the love of their birth family that brought them into our lives. We will teach our child the importance of compassion and empathy for others.

We look forward to going on adventures, learning, and spending time developing lifelong memories as a family.
