We are Amanda and Kenneth, a teacher and engineer from Houston, Texas. Amanda is a certified reading specialist and Kenneth is a licensed Professional Engineer. We live in a wonderful gated golf community (even though neither of us golf!) with our two sweet retrievers Macy and Lily and our adopted daughter, Emily. All three keep us very busy! We both come from families with long standing Aggie traditions and still love to go to a football game or two every season! Traveling and being outside doing things, whatever those things may be, are our passions and we are fortunate to have many opportunities to enjoy them. As we have just celebrated our seventh year of marriage and are reaching more and more of our goals we have set, we are becoming increasingly excited about building our family and providing the opportunity for Emily to grow up with a sibling.
Family is extremely important to both of us and we are excited about passing on the love to future generations! Growing up, Amanda wanted nothing more than to be a mother and watch her children grow and learn and become their own independent people. Kenneth has grown up wanting the same thing and we both believe in our hearts that God meant us to be parents. When we were told by a doctor that a biological family was not a possibility we knew adoption was going to be our plan. In 2017 we were beyond blessed to have that dream fulfilled. Our hearts are open and ready once again to love and nurture a child, regardless of whether or not we gave birth to them and we feel blessed to have this calling!
