• About Us:

      Hi! We are Andrew & Katie. We met in college and dated for several years before we got engaged. After 10+ years of dating, we got married in 2017. We’ve been married now for almost 7 years! Katie is a pediatric nurse and Andrew is a planning & production control senior manager. We live in the Boston suburbs with our dog, Cora.

    • Our Hobbies:

      We love traveling, kayaking, and going to comedy shows, and baseball games. We enjoy getting together with our friends and hosting parties in our backyard. We also enjoy being home just us, cooking, playing cards, doing puzzles, watching HGTV, the Food Network and game shows.

    • Qualities we See in Each Other:

      I was drawn to Andrew’s sense of humor and valued the trust and sense of safety I had in him. He always tries to make me laugh and keep me smiling and he always cheers me on.

      I was drawn to Katie’s positive energy and welcoming personality.  She was easy to talk to and you could tell right away that she was a very caring and amazing person.

    • Our Extended Family:

      Our baby wont just have us when they join our family! We have a massive support system who can not wait for us to become parents, including our moms, siblings, and extended family. We also have a huge chosen family- friends who we have had for decades who are so close, they’re like family. We already have a lot of kids in our life, so our child will have lots of built in friends and honorary cousins!

    • Our Adoption Story:

      We have been trying to expand our family for the last six years. After a difficult road of infertility, we realized that the parts of parenthood we dreamed about the most were in raising a child.  We recognized that we already value chosen family, one not tied by genetics and so we recommitted ourselves to becoming parents through adoption and see it as the most beautiful way to build a family.

    • Special Activities/Traditions:

      A few of our favorite traditions include having annual summer barbeques and Halloween parties in our backyard. It’s so much fun to have our backyard filled with kids running around! We also love going to our family’s cabin in Maine every summer where we enjoy floating in the lake, paddleboarding and watching the loons swim. We also love to travel and look forward to taking our child with us to see the world.

    • Our Home & Neighborhood:

      We live in the suburbs of Boston in a safe neighborhood with lots of families. The neighborhood children often ride their bikes in the street, build snow forts in their yards, and play basketball in their driveways. We love to take our dog, Cora for walks to the wooded path at the end of our street or to the state park a few minutes’ drive away. We often drive into Boston for a city day and have several friends that live close by who we visit often.
