Chelsea & Andrew

Hoping to Adopt (Texas)

Letter

Hello,


We want you to be certain that both you and your baby are loved and valued.


We grew together, going to the same college, serving together in the children's ministry at church, and helping each other through difficult seasons.
We imagine this comes to you at a complicated point in your life. We want you to be certain that both you and your baby are loved and valued. Even though we are very happy and excited at the prospect of adoption, we understand that your decision to place your child for adoption is a difficult one that takes a lot of strength. Thank you. Our Story Our relationship was slow and steady. We grew together, going to the same college, serving together in the children's ministry at church, and helping each other through difficult seasons. We got engaged in 2013 and married in 2014.We both grew up in the same town and went to the same church. We knew each other when we were kids, but really became friends in high school. Chelsea When we were in high school, Andrew's family moved into a house just down the street. He didn't have his driver's license yet, and our mothers decided it would be a great idea for me to give him rides to church or when we would go hang out with our friends. I'm going to be honest: I wasn't thrilled because Andrew was a pretty weird 15 year old. Andrew Thankfully (for everyone involved) I grew up a little over the next few years and Chelsea and I had plenty of time to enjoy a great friendship. Right after I graduated high school, we started dating, and we continued dating through college. Our relationship was slow and steady. We grew together, going to the same college, serving together in the children's ministry at church, and helping each other through difficult seasons. We got engaged in 2013 and married in 2014.

Adventuring together
Chelsea: I love the beach. My favorite is the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I enjoy the rhythm of the waves on the shore. Seeing the ocean stretch all the way to the horizon helps me keep my life in perspective. Andrew: I love the natural beauty of the mountains (especially the Rockies). Camping helps me relax and remember my place in the natural world. I also enjoy hiking and rock climbing because the mental and physical challenge helps me discover and push my limits. We both enjoy road trips. In 2017, we took an epic road trip across the west and hiked to the top of a mountain to watch the solar eclipse. We both love music, Chelsea plays piano and sings, and Andrew plays guitar and drums. We go to see live music whenever we can, usually at a jazz lounge or the symphony.
