Liz grew up an hour north of Green Bay, in Menominee Michigan, with her parents and younger sister.  Liz enjoyed performing in school plays, babysitting, and cheerleading. 

 

Andy grew up in DePere Wisconsin, with his parents, older brother and sister.  Andy enjoyed being in 4-H, playing basketball, football, and woodworking. 

We both had a very happy childhood with a lot of great memories. 

 

Just as the world of online dating was beginning, the stars aligned with a match and we met in 2007.  After a fun first date at Starbucks we were inseparable.  Just a few months into dating, Liz told her Mom that she knew Andy was the one!  After dating for two years, Andy asked Liz to marry him on Valentines Day at sunset on a beautiful beach in Florida.  She said yes! We were married in June 2011 at the church we had been attending together in Green Bay.

 We live just north of Green Bay with our dog Lucy.  We live in a quiet neighborhood in the Bayport school district. We are blocks away from the elementary school and have a nice park at the end of our street.

Liz is a dental assistant.  She's been in the dental field for over 14 years and loves it. Andy is a research and development engineer.  The company he works for makes conveyors for companies all over the world.  He has three patents for his designs.

 

On a typical weekend, you can find us visiting family or friends, spending time outside, hosting a game night or taking a road trip to Door County.  We love spending time with our nieces and nephew along with our friends' children.  Andy's parents live very close by and Liz's parents live less than an hour away.  

We have always wanted to start a family of our own and are excited to do so!  We believe God placed adoption in our hearts and are so thrilled to be in this journey...to find our miracle.
