Hello from me! Andie!

Interestingly enough, I have spent my whole life advising people on adoption. Let’s be honest. When people would find out, hear (or over hear in the grocery store check out line that I was adopted), they would start asking questions immediately. Even as a teen, my parent’s friends who were thinking of adopting, or already had, would ask me questions and my advice on different topics.

Now, as an adult, I unintentionally have fallen into a space where I am able to move those experiences into practice here with you.

While I see the world primarily through the lens of an adoptee, I also am an adoptive parent having adoped through the foster care system. With these combined experiences, I am able to offer you a well-rounded and practical voice to connect with you in your own experiences as an adoptee, a hopeful adoptive parent, an adoptive parent, or a foster parent.

Andie’s voice in particular is unlike any other. She is hilarious, honest, transparent, raw, bold, and at times, challenging to our adoptive parent fragility (heaven forbid). Most importantly, her voice is necessary for us to understand the complexities that exist within every single adoption story. We will be better and healthier parents/people for sitting at her feet

Andrea has one of the most unique adoption perspectives which makes her insight extremely valuable. She does a great job of not shying away from hard things without saying them harshly. We are better adoptive parents since we have been learning from her.
