Hello, we are Andrew and Carrie! In our free time, we enjoy going out to the movies, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals, playing Frisbee, and taking walks in the cool evenings. Andrew enjoys rock climbing and weight lifting and has been trying his hand at graphic design. Carrie is artistically inclined and enjoys sketching, painting and decorating. We are so excited and grateful that you are taking the time to get to know us. Even though we don't have the privilege of knowing you, there are some things that we do know about you for certain.
You are here, reading this letter which means you have overcome many challenging obstacles so we know you to be fiercely brave and strong. We also can say with 100% assurance that you are deeply loved and you are prayed for consistently. Lastly, we know that while you are facing possibly one of the toughest decisions of your life, you are ultimately going to do what you know to be best for you and the precious little one you carry. We sincerely want that for the two of you as well. Whatever your final decision, we love that you are considering adoption and we want to say thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey no matter how small or great that role may be.
While we are able to have children biologically (as far as we know), adoption has been a dream of ours for years. Long before we even met each other, we were privileged to see the incredible impact adoption can have and knew that it was God's will for our future family. Now, having been married four years, we are putting down roots and finally seeing that dream come to life. Our home, arms and hearts are open and ready for the little one God has for us no matter their genetics, ethnicity or gender. We have so much love to give this child and are willing to honor that child's needs mentally, physically, spiritually and culturally. We are ready for this adventure to begin!
Carrie and Andrew
