We met on our high school cross-country team, started dating a few years later, and have now been married for 10 years.
In that time, we’ve been blessed with three energetic, loving, and rambunctious little boys: Sam gave birth to Trystan and Oliver (age 7) in 2012, and we adopted Harvey Lew (age 3) in 2016. Andy works as a high school social studies teacher and may also be coaching swimming next year. Sam is a full-time stay-at-home Mama, marathoner, and occasional freelance writer/blogger. We’re both major nerds who love all things Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Mario. We also enjoy working out, family game nights, and just chilling out at home with our kids. They have great imaginations, and we love it when they invite us into their worlds of make-believe.
We are a Christian family that strives to live as Jesus did: with peace, compassion, tolerance, acceptance, and love. Our greatest wish for our children is for them to grow up knowing that they are loved and valued by their families and by God, and for them to share that love with the world around them. We are so excited about bringing another little bundle of love into our home!
