Amanda placed a little girl for adoption 9 years ago and has been a positive adoption advocate ever since! Her birth daughters life is shared with her through letters and pictures and she believes strongly that despite the struggles that are sure to come, there is beauty to be found in every story.
She shares her story yearly to local high schools in the Las Vegas area and has spoke publicly several times to perspective adoptive couples about the love of adoption and the understanding of the birthparents side of the triad. She recently started sharing her entire story on her personal blog atwww.cryinggetsthesadout.
Amanda believes strongly in being a positive voice for adoption and hopes that by being there for other birth mom's, as ones before her were there for her, she might be able to help them heal in even the smallest way. She is excited to begin more work in the adoption community with Birthmother Baskets and can't wait to learn and grow amongst the remarkable people who share her love for adoption!
She currently lives in Henderson Nevada with her forever companion and best friend Craig, and their two beautiful children. She loves spending most of her spare time with her family and is admittedly a TV junkie. On the weekends you'll most likely find her outside playing with her kids or doing some "deep cleaning" around the house. Crazy enough, this lady loves to clean!
