Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to our blog! It is our hope and prayer that we will be able to add another child to our family through adoption. We are excited to share bits and pieces of our life with you to help you get to know us better. As you can see we love taking pictures and have tons of them! So scroll, click and enjoy. Please feel free to contact us via the email below if you or someone you know is considering adoption.

About Andy's Family


Andy's family is so much fun to be around.  It's all boy in their house.  ESPN is always on the TV (except when the Food Network creeps in).  They all played sports through school and continue to play and watch sports whenever they can. Andy is the oldest brother but that doesn't mean he's the biggest. His brother Mike works in demolition-- so he has gotten pretty strong.  Peter, the middle brother works in sales and likes to go dirt biking in the desert with his new wife.  Mark, the baby of the family, works in construction and also has a side gig as a chef. And Sam is in the restaurant business while his wife is in sales.  Andy's dad teaches PE at a high school in LA.  Andy's mom works as an administrator in the LA Unified school system.  They both like traveling, visiting museums, and watching movies.  All of Andy's family lives in LA and is only a 6 hour drive or 45 minute plane ride away.  We see them multiple times a year either in LA or when they come to visit us.

They spoil Tavin every chance they get! They send him toys and clothes and can't wait for him to visit.  They love taking him swimming, out on walks, to Disneyland and playing with him.  They are so excited for us to adopt another baby and can't wait to spoil them too! Below are some photos of Tavin spending with Andy's siblings and parents.
