Our love story began on New Years Day in 2012. We were both on our worship team at our church, and sang together that Sunday morning. We struck up a conversation, asked each other out on a date, and began on a journey that would take us on the ride of our life. We got engaged just a few months later in May 2012, in front of our entire church congregation, and a few short months later were married in October 2012. During the first four years of our marriage, Cecily attended nursing school, and graduated in December 2016 with her bachelor's degree and a registered nursing license. Andrew earned his CDL license and began his job as a truck driver in January 2013. About three years into our marriage, we decided it was time to start a family, but God had other plans for us. Our struggles with fertility have made our relationship so much stronger, and we believe God has used that time to mold us into the parents He is calling us to be. After two years of trying to get pregnant, we believe that God has called us to start our family through adoption. Adoption is a special part of both of our families, as Andrew's dad is adopted, and three of Cecily's brothers are adopted. We cant wait to see someday how God uses our story for His glory.
Living in Indiana is great because we are only a few hours from so many wonderful places to explore. One of our favorite things to do is travel. We also enjoy going out with family and friends, watching movies, playing card games, and making videos with our Go-Pros. Another one of our favorite things to do is play with our two dogs Oreo and Olaf. In the summer, we enjoy bike riding around our neighborhood, camping at our parent's lake house, visiting the zoo with our membership, and hosting bonfires.
More than anything, we want you to know that we will love and cherish your child, unconditionally. We will provide them with support, security, and all the joy in the world. We plan to raise them with an understanding of where they came from, and that your actions were done out of love and care for them. This child will be loved so much by us, our families, our friends, our community, and we want them to always know of the love that you have for them. Thank you again for considering us, and know that we are daily praying for you.
Andrew works full time as a truck driver for a garbage company. He is an amazing guitar player and teaches lessons one night a week. He enjoys playing computer games with his friends. He recently has taken up videography and is excelling in it. Andrew always knows how to make people laugh! His best quality is his loyalty to the people he loves most. He is my best friend, and I cant wait to see the kind of father he will become someday.
Cecily works part time as a registered oncology nurse at our top local hospital. She enjoys scrapbooking, shopping, gardening, reading, and going to a zumba dance class. She is the most organized person I know! Cecily has always desired to be a mom. She plans to take plenty of time off work when the baby arrives and then return to working a couple days a week. She loves the Lord, and has such a big heart for others. I know she will be an amazing mother someday.-Andrew
