Vincent + Amanda

Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us while you are making one of the most important decisions about yourself and your child. Vin and I have created an amazing life together in the past 11 years we have been together. We love outdoor adventures but also enjoy a quiet day/night in with our Cat and Puppy. If you choose us, we are waiting to welcome you and your baby into our family with open hearts and open arms.

Our Story

'Our Story' Image

We met in the summer of 2008 and have been together ever since. We have been inseparable and started dating when Amanda was 18 and Vincent was 22. In the summer of 2013 we decided that we were the ones for each other and got engaged at our annual family outing. In 2015, we were married with close family and friends watching as we shared our vows with one another. We have now been married for 4 years, and together for 12 years. They have been some of the best years of our life!

Why We Want To Adopt

We have been trying to have a baby for quite some time. We were pregnant twice, once with twins and then a single pregnancy. Sadly, both were lost very early on. However, we have coped with our loss as a couple and were supported by our loving family. Now that we have processed our grief, we are ready to welcome a baby into our lives. We have always wanted children and waited patiently for the right time to start a family. Parenting has always been in our hearts, and after deciding the best thing for our family was to become parents, fate led us to adoption. We are excited about adopting and beginning this journey. I, Amanda, and my sister, were also adopted as infants. I understand what it's like to have another family out there. Recently, I received the opportunity to meet my birth family in person. It was such a fulfilling moment in my life and one that I will cherish forever. I now have a strong relationship with my birth family and talk to my birth mother and sister every day.

"Amanda was born in Texas and placed in a family from New York. She attended college and received a Masters of Justice and Administration with a minor is Human Resources. She is now a Human Resources Director for a major Internet and Cable company in the USA. Amanda also enjoys reading, cuddling with her puppy and taking pictures of him almost daily (haha). She spends her weekends with me either at home or out on one of the trails near our home." - Vincent Amanda is fun, caring, and expressive!

Meet Vincent

"Vincent has lived in New York his whole life. He went to college and obtained a degree in Sociology with a minor in Computer Studies. He went on to become an IT Support Technician for a major broadcasting company. In his free time, he enjoys reading, photography, going to our local walking trails and spending time with me, our dog and cat." - Amanda Vincent- Loving, Adventurous, Protective

Our Home

Since Vincent's father passed away, we moved back into his childhood home to be with his mother. We ensure we spend a few hours at night with her and eat dinner with her as well. Our house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a combined kitchen, dining room and living room. Our neighborhood is very small and most of the neighbors all know each other. We have access to 3 parks in the area as well as an indoor community pool. We have a generous sized backyard and a huge front porch. What we love most about our area is that there are so many families here with small children. Amanda's favorite spot in the house is the nursery. Right now, there is a small couch by the window where Amanda loves to sit and read. Vincent's favorite spot is undoubtedly the office. He gets all of his work done there and is constantly tinkering with new technology. Our home is a welcoming space where we hold game nights twice a month with our close friends and family.

Our Sweet Pets

Mickey is our 4 year old Chi-Pin. Dot is our 1 year old Long Hair Domestic Kitty. Both Mickey and Dot have been with us since they were babies. Mickey was rescued from a shelter at 4 months old. He loves to pose for the camera and enjoys being dressed up. When it's time for bed he will let you know by just going into our room and jumping under the blankets. Amanda found Dot in her work parking lot when she was 1 week old. The vet told us not to expect her to make it. Amanda woke up every two hours to feed her, cuddle her, keep her warm and medicate her for the first 2 months of her life. Now, she is a playful, rambunctious and sassy 1 year old cat. Her and Mickey absolutely adore one another and sometimes if we are lucky, we can catch them actually laying down together.
