Meet Amanda & Clint D.

Adoptive family

Hello, Birth Parents!

We are so very honored that you’re taking the time to learn more about our family and consider us as adoptive parents. The decision to take the route of adoption is courageous, and we assure you that the magnitude of this situation is not lost on us. Please know that you are supported, that there is a team in your corner. If you do choose us to raise your child, we look forward to sharing many memories and adventures with you.

About Our Family

We are both from small towns in Ohio and attended at two terrific universities – Ohio State and Ohio Northern.  We met in Columbus at an Ohio State football game in 2010 and married on the island of St. Croix in early 2018.

We love to travel and try to visit a new place each year,.  We enjoy being outdoors, attending concerts and sporting events and exploring our city.  We also enjoy being homebodies as we love to cook, do projects around the house, and play music – Clint plays the guitar and Amanda sings! We have the cutest furbaby named Remus, a 3-year-old Irish doodle.

We decided on adoption a long time ago, knowing that we truly wanted to raise children but not able to do so naturally. We will be open with our child about their story and hope to have a long, fulfilling relationship with the birth parents.

Meet Amanda I am an outgoing, passionate person who cherishes spending time with family and friends. I am currently a business leader at a sustainable technology company in Columbus and very much love what I do – I can bring our puppy to work and help the environment at the same time! I love spending time exploring Columbus with Clint – trying new restaurants, attending Ohio State or Columbus Blue Jackets games, as well as festivals. I also enjoy gardening and interior decorating. Above all else, I love and cherish Clint – he is my rock and the kindest, most giving person I’ve ever known.

Meet Clint I am an energetic, hardworking, and fun-loving person. I’ve been in the hospitality industry for 15 years and am the General Manager of a new hotel in downtown Columbus. I enjoy spending time with our puppy, Remus, running and playing. I am passionate about music and have a guitar collection that I’ve been compiling for many years. I love to cook, especially grilling in the summer. I enjoy doing projects around the house, including landscaping. My favorite thing is making my wife laugh. I couldn’t have asked for a better wife. Amanda is selfless and always wants to take care of those around her.

Our Family Life

We are truly best friends, who value our commitment to each other every day.

We live in a Columbus suburb with many young families and lots of children. We have a large backyard with a very big deck, so we spend a lot of time there in the summer. Many friends live nearby so we often spend weekends with their families. There are many parks near our home, including a 4-acre water tributary with various wildlife. Columbus is filled with museums, theaters, and children’s play centers!

We spend lots of time with family, including vacationing together. Each year we visit Topsail Island, North Carolina with Amanda’s parents, cousins, and family friends.  We also vacation regularly with Clint’s large family, recently visiting Gatlinburg.

Thank you again for considering us. We can’t wait to begin this journey together!

Our Family at a Glance

We live in the Columbus, Ohio area. We work as a hotel general manager and as a business leader. Our hobbies include cooking, projects around our house, exploring the city, and attending concerts/sporting events (to name a few). We believe open adoption is critical to the child understanding and knowing their past. It’s an extension of our family, showing love, compassion, and support to one another. We’ve been married since February 2018.
