We are very team oriented and believe it is better to act together as team.
Hi, we're James & Amanda.
We met while attending law school together. James was a year ahead of me in school and after my 1st year of law school the firm James worked for hired me. We immediately became friends and a bond formed between us. Soon we were eating lunch together every day and going out to dinner on weekends, eventually becoming inseparable. Unbeknownst to me, as I later found out, it was during the first weekend we were apart that James knew he was going to marry me. After I graduated from law school, James proposed, and we became engaged to be married. After dating for three years, we married on a beach in Jamaica in 2007. We lived in our first house together until 2013 and then moved into our current home so that we could be closer to work. We enjoy our life here! We always knew it was in our heart to adopt. As we became established in our careers we knew now was the perfect time. The work life balance is important to us and we can dedicate the time to be present in our child's life. James will put his law practice on hold and work from home, while I will continue to work outside the home. I am blessed in that my job will still allow a lot of flexible hours and time off to be present in our child's life. We decided early in our marriage that eating dinner together at the dinner table was very important to us. So we make it a point to prepare dinner together and then sit down and visit during dinner. We even clean up together. We are very team oriented and believe it is better to act together as team. We look forward to raising a child together as a team.
James loves and supports me with all of his being and I know he'll do the same with your child. Amanda is a reliable and dependable person that I know will bestow her all in guiding the precious life entrusted to her.
Ready to ride
About James By Amanda When I met James, I instantly knew that life would never be boring with him in it. That's just as true today as it was 14 years ago. Whether it's a long car ride where we turn off our cell phones and discuss everything from buttercream versus cream cheese icing to our hopes and dreams for our family or whether it is at the dinner table after my day at the office, life is just better with James in it. James loves and supports me with all of his being and I know he'll do the same with your child. This love will multiply as a baby enters our family. No one can predict what our child's hopes and dreams will be, but I know James will support those no matter what they are. His consistency, tolerance for individuality and energy will make him the perfect stay-at-home dad. About Amanda By James Amanda is the beacon of light that guides those around her to do their best. She is an honest and caring person whose presence just makes things better. An example of this occurred during her birthday last year she asked her family and friends to celebrate with her by preparing breakfast for children staying at the Ronald McDonald house. She is always willing to listen and help others when they are in need. She cares for her family and friends a great deal and is always there to support them. I know Amanda is well equipped to become a mom as she is full of love and has been passionate about motherhood her whole life. She inspires confidence in others while exhibiting patience and understanding. I know that she will give her whole self to being a devoted and loving mother. She is a reliable and dependable person that I know will bestow her all in guiding the precious life entrusted to her.
Travel, Parenting, And Education
We believe there must be a balance between structure and fun
We will always make the best interest of our child our first priority and have budgeted for private school tuition and college.
We enjoy traveling and experiencing new things. We take an annual cruise to the Caribbean with one of our close friends from law school and his family, including his two young children. Most of our other trips throughout the year usually involve weekend trips to the beach or interesting places nearby. We both traveled with our families as kids and are excited to share these experiences with a child and explore the world together. We are ready and excited to experience parenting. We believe the love and logic parenting style is one that is well suited for children at all ages. We believe there must be a balance between structure and fun. We know that we will have a loving home--always teaching and nurturing a child in order to raise a child that is self-confident and motivated as well as respectful and compassionate to others. Education is important to us and we will emphasize and encourage education in all aspects not just schooling. We believe learning is a lifelong process and that builds on the foundation of early childhood. We will always make the best interest of our child our first priority and have budgeted for private school tuition and college.
We will be dedicated parents, doing everything we can to help your child grow into a happy, healthy, motivated person.
