Dear birth parents,
We are so grateful that you chose an adoption plan, thank you for considering us as a possible family! By making this decision, it is clear that you are full of strength and courage. We hope, by reading our story, you might catch a glimpse of our desire to become parents. Through our words and our photos, we hope to invite you into our life to see how incredibly loved and cared for this child will be. We want to introduce you to our friends and family that make up our life and have shaped us into the people we are today. We want to tell you how we first met, how our family first started, and how excited we are to become parents.
We have been married since 2006 and we met a few years before we tied the knot through mutual friends and a high school ministry called Young Life. From the very beginning our Christian faith and involvement in the Church has been the
biggest driving force in our relationship. We believe that Jesus loves people of all different cultures, ethnicities and races, and the church we attend reflects this love very well. We feel that God has called us to adoption and we have always felt that adoption would be a part of our family’s story.
Here is a little more about us: Amanda is the Event Sales Manager for a local development company in downtown Cincinnati. Her love for meeting new people and sharing her excitement for our great city makes this job the perfect fit for Amanda. When Amanda is not working, she leads a small group of women through our church. She loves to run, spend time with family and friends and go on adventures with Jonathan. Jonathan works as an Electrical Technician for a company that manufactures electric vehicles. Jonathan also leads a small group through our church, but this group is also a bunch of men that like to build things together. When Jonathan isn’t building things, he loves to record music as he plays several instruments. Although we have plenty to keep ourselves occupied when we’re apart, we are at our very best when we are together. We volunteer with marriage classes through the church and are great at making people feel welcome. No matter what you find us doing, we are sure to be making each other laugh. We envision our family being rooted in our faith in Christ and raising our children within a diverse, faith based community where they will be deeply loved and cared for.
Through this adoption, we will become parents for the first time. We are so excited! Thank you for taking the time to read about us. We look forward to meeting you!
Jonathan and Amanda
