We met in college at North Dakota State University in 2005.
Meeting through mutual friends, we began spending more and more time together. Over two years of friendship, we realized there was more to our relationship and we decided to start dating. After college, we moved to the Twin Cities, bought a home together, and became engaged. In 2011, we got married in Fargo, ND.
We love to travel and experience different cultures. When we travel, one of our favorite activities is to search for local restaurants and food choices that we otherwise could not get at home.
We have always wanted to be parents and after experiences of infertility and heartbreak, we came through stronger and are excited to become parents through adoption. We know that a child is part of our future and adoption is the path we now find ourselves on.
About Scott from Amber
Scott is extremely thoughtful, patient, and supportive. Many times I will ask him to do something for me and he will say, “I already took care of it.” Scott is very laid back and patient. He will be great at helping our child with school and extracurricular activities. He is always supportive of my career choices, interests, and goals. I have no doubt that he will also support our child in pursuing and developing his or her interests. Scott is a great husband, and will make a great father. I am so lucky to have him in my life.
About Amber from Scott
Amber is one of the most hardworking, intelligent, and caring people I have ever met. She is very goal oriented and driven, and will instill a sense of pride and desire to be the best you can in our child.
Her support of family members and friends is unrivaled among people I know. She routinely goes out of her way to check in on loved ones and stay in touch. She is my best friend and I don’t know what I would do without her.
From Both of Us:
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. Should you choose us, we want you to know that we will support and encourage your child’s hopes and dreams and above all love him or her unconditionally.
Our heritage has played a significant role in our lives and we fully plan to teach your child about his or her cultural legacy as well. Most of all, we will continually assure your child how much you love him or her and how grateful we are of the gift you gave us.
