Thanks for looking at our profile! Nate and I are grateful for your time and consideration. We wish you the best in this life, and this particular point in time.
I guess we'll tell you a little about ourselves. We live out in the country on our small place, next to Nate's parents. It's pretty much a simple hobby farm life. We have horses, chickens, rabbits, dogs, and a cat to look after. I must say, they are fun and bring lots of joy. I also try my hand at gardening (although I need a lot of help, it’s still rewarding and fun). Nate works hard, and spends his free time running tractors, enhancing our vehicles, and helping others. We love spending time together working on our place, visiting friends and family, or exploring something new. We are very grateful for the country life, we just wish we had kids to share it with. We've been married since 2010, and have not been able to have kids of our own. It is certainly a hole in our lives, which is very hard to put into words. We have ten nieces/nephews (and counting), and we love them very much! Nate's immediate family is just down the road, and no more than 2 hours away. My family lives in other states, which makes visits fun and special.
We grew up in very different ways. My Dad was in the Air Force for the beginning of my childhood. I got to live in a handful of different places (including the country of Panama) and I have experienced different cultures. Even though we moved a lot, our stability was our family; we always had each other. I guess you could say my experience was more “city” life. Nate was raised on his family’s cattle ranch. He has the experience of life-long friends and community; and taking care of others. Our different experiences, but love of the same country life, make us an amazing team. Our meeting was truly an act of God. I was living in a suburb of Phoenix and had just finished an equine science degree. I was interning at a horse training barn when a client asked if I would go to Wyoming and ride his horses for the summer. I had never been there, but it sounded like a good adventure where I was sure I could learn more about horses and see some different country for a few months. That man happened to be Nate's neighbor. God had a plan for us to meet, and still has a plan for us to grow a family, even if we can't see it yet. We find peace in that. We hope you find peace in knowing there is a plan for you, and your baby too, even if you can't see what it is exactly yet.
Thank you again, for reading a little about us. If you have questions, please reach out and ask Adoption is a huge deal and we'll be glad to answer questions. Best wishes to you,
~Nate and Andrea
