We know this is a confusing time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your baby.

Our Story

ZACH ON AMANDA

Amanda is my favorite person in the world! She is easy going and really enjoys being around our family and friends. She loves to plan get togethers and parties. Amanda is wonderfully creative and enjoys spending each day with me. I could not imagine doing life with anyone else. One of the qualities that I appreciate most about Amanda is her ability to plan and organize. I also love how she anticipates people's needs. I really love how she laughs at my corny jokes and sense of humor! If there is one thing I could portray to you about Amanda, it's that she is a truly incredible woman and wife and will make an amazing mother to our future child.

AMANDA ON ZACH

Zach is my person! He is always the one that I have gone to for anything, even before we were married. Zach has many qualities that I admire in him. He is a great listener and problem solver. If anyone ever needs advice on what to do, they love to hear Zach's input and take what he has to say to heart. He is smart, in fact he is the smartest person I know (and I am not just saying that because he is my husband). You can ask anyone that knows him, and they would say the same thing. But my favorite quality of Zach's is his sense of humor. He makes me laugh all the time and we get each other's jokes! I love jus being with him, he is an amazing guy and I hate when we are apart. In the six years that we have been married we have only spent two nights apart. Zach is amazing with children and all children adore him. I love to watch him interact with all our nieces and nephews and I cannot wait to see how he is as a father. I know he will be GREAT!
