Adoptive family

Dear Birthparents,

It is with open hearts that we ask you to consider our family. Your decision to make an adoption plan shows a tremendous amount of strength and caring. We are supportive of open adoption and want to create a plan with you that is best for you and your child. We have created a healthy and happy home that is ready to welcome a new family member. We will dedicate our lives to raising an amazing person.

About Amanda: Amanda is adventurous, loyal, and kind. She truly enjoys caring for others, a trait that serves her well as a preschool and kindergarten teacher at a Montessori school. What Amanda most loves about Montessori teaching is the focus on respecting the child, fostering confidence and a love of learning. She is excited to use her knowledge of early childhood education to enrich the lives of her children. Amanda enjoys practicing yoga for both the physical exercise and spiritual connection. She recently became a certified instructor and shares her love of yoga by leading a class for the teachers at her school.

About Kenton: Kenton is hardworking and creative, using his many talents to paint and design sets for theatre. Whether at work or at home, Kenton is happiest using his hands to build things. He is a lover of nature and animals, and has a deep appreciation for our planet. During the summers, Kenton is a mentor for young apprentice artists, teaching them to paint murals, create stagecraft and make parade-art. He brings a playful and fun spirit to everything he does, sparking joy and wonder to people of all ages. He cannot wait to spend time with his child having fun and making art!

loving family

As a Couple: Over 8 years ago we were introduced by mutual friends. We quickly realized our connection and have since grown that connection into the lasting, loving, and joyful marriage we have today. We are both incredibly supportive of one another and make a great team. We are over-joyed at the possibility of having a new team member to love and support!

parents for your child

Together we enjoy spending time in our garden, tending the earth and growing our own food. Beyond our backyard, we love taking trips experiencing new places near and far. Our two rescue dogs are named Django and Lorelei. They love kids, going for hikes, and trips to the dog park.

Community: We are very grateful to be surrounded by loving friends and family. Both of our parents live nearby and are incredibly supportive of us. They cannot wait to have another grandchild to shower with love! Our best friends live within walking distance and have a toddler who will be a great playmate. We live in a peaceful neighborhood with a thriving public Montessori school, vibrant parks, and excellent libraries. Amanda was a nanny for many years and knows where to find great children’s attractions and events.

As parents:

  • We will love our child unconditionally
  • Support them in following their dreams and passions
  • Surround them with loving family and community
  • Inspire a love of nature and exploration
  • Give them all they need to live a happy healthy life

You have our warmest wishes and deepest gratitude. Thank you for taking time to read about our family. We are eager to answer any questions you might have.

With love,
Amanda and Kenton
