Amanda is a professional face painter, and Micah makes awesome blueberry pie.
Hello and thank you for checking out our profile! We are excited and honored to get to know you. We are a quirky, fun-loving couple in our 30s from Napa, CA. Micah is employed full time as a winemaker; Amanda is a nanny and a face painter, and plans on being a stay-at-home mom. We love children and are looking forward to starting our family through open adoption!
We met at the birthday party of a mutual friend. On our first date, we instantly bonded over our shared love of cartoons and science fiction. We love spending time with our wide circle of friends, and taking mini excursions on the weekends. Our favorite part of the day is snuggling on the couch after work and joking and goofing around with each other. We can’t wait to have a little one to join our snuggle parties!
We live in a 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house in a friendly neighborhood. We have two cats, Morris (an orange tabby) and Xayide (a long-haired torby). Most of our friends and family have small children, and we consider them all to be our nieces and nephews. We can’t wait to introduce them to another little “cousin”!
We chose to adopt because it would not be safe for Amanda to have a biological child, so we decided not to risk it. Our families and friends are super supportive of our adoption, and they are constantly asking for updates. We would feel grateful and awed to be chosen as the parents of a child, and we look forward to building a relationship with you and your family.
Micah is the baby whisperer. Every time someone brings a baby to a gathering, he is the first to ask if he can hold them. He is nurturing, funny, and a loyal friend, and he has good values. I didn’t know that I wanted a family until I met him; his compassion and enthusiasm towards children convinced me. I believe that he will rock fatherhood.
Children are fascinated with Amanda, everywhere we go she always has a little flock of them following her around. She has a deep sweetness in her that makes everyone close to her feel safe and cared for. She is creative, and smart, and loving, and I know she will make the best place in the world for a child to grow.
We talk a lot about what hopes and goals we have for our family. Mostly we want our child to have the most self-confidence that they can possibly have, and we will do everything in our power to make that happen. We will love our child a whole lot, and always prioritize our family above everything else.
