your selflessness is so cherished
Amanda and Kyle
You are such an answered prayer for us! We don’t know all of the circumstances that brought you to create an adoption plan for your son or daughter, but your selflessness is so cherished. We are humbled beyond measure to have you consider us as parents and know we will raise your child in a God-centered, loving family with SO much support!
To start from the beginning,
We have the goofiest and most loving relationship and push each other daily to pursue our relationship with the Lord.
We make a great team.
We must apologize to any Texas Tech rivals out there, as we met while attending the greatest university in the world. Amanda’s freshman year, and Kyle’s sophomore year at Tech was the beginning of the end for our dating careers. Amanda was 18, and after studying all week and knowing she would ace her first economics quiz, it was to her dismay that the professor must have gotten off on his grading or calculated incorrectly as she didn’t make the A that she just KNEW she would. Meanwhile, Kyle’s paper mirrored what Amanda was supposed to make, causing her to reach out and ask for a study buddy. Kyle and Amanda maintained a friendship which turned into a best-friendship for over a year before taking the plunge into actually dating and becoming “Facebook official.” After both graduating from Texas Tech University (Kyle in 2012, and Amanda in 2013), Kyle decided to pop the ques-tion! We tied the knot in August 2013, and our relationship and commitment to each other continues to grow with each passing day. We loved West Texas so much that we decided to stay out there a little while before moving closer to family. We have the goofiest and most loving relationship and push each other daily to pursue our relationship with the Lord.
What brought us here
We have never doubted that we are meant to be parents, and now we are hopeful that someone will be able to answer that prayer for us!
Kyle and Amanda
When we got engaged, we had talked about adoption and knew that would be an alley we would eventually take-it was just a matter of WHEN. We married young and have always known that we wanted to have children. We also knew we wanted to wait until we were financially able to provide for our child/ren with a stable home, close to our immediate families for support, as well as allow them the ability to pursue interests of their own (sports, arts...). We were married for 5 years when we decided it was time. After having friends who took a while to get pregnant, we weren’t too worried when the tests showed up negative month after month. About a year later, we finally got our first positive pregnancy test only to find out days later that we had miscarried. We continued to try, getting pregnant 3 more times and losing a total of 4 times. We took this as our sign from the Lord that our time for adoption was NOW. We have never doubted that we are meant to be parents, and now we are hopeful that someone will be able to answer that prayer for us!
What we enjoy
Traveling together is one of our favorite things to do!

Kyle really loves to work outside landscaping, mowing, and keeping our lawn looking nice! Amanda enjoys running and playing tennis. We both play piano, although Kyle is the more musical one as he plays guitar for the church and the drums on occasion! Traveling together is one of our favorite things to do! When it’s just the two of us, we love hanging out by the beach, enjoying lots of great seafood, and sleeping in. When we travel with Amanda’s brother and sister-in-law, we take in everything we can in a short amount of time. One particular occasion-we visited Maine, drove to Cadillac Mountain at three in the morning to be able to be the first few people to see the sunrise in the United States, then hiked 4 miles, bike rode 15 miles, and kayaked back - all in the same day!
