This blog is supposed to be about Oliver and his adoption journey, but some of you may want to know a little about the people behind the curtain.
We are Andrew and Ashley Fisher. 🙂
We met on a warm, sunny Wednesday in June at the most romantic place you could think of…Match.com! Yep, it works! Well, for us anyway. We have heard some serious horror stories about that site, but for us it was just a way to get connected and then it was pretty normal after that. “Normal” meaning texting on day one, met in-person on day three, dinner with Andrew’s parents on day four, and the rest is history!
Currently, we call Sacramento our home. We were both raised in northern California and we love the outdoors. Hiking, mountain biking, camping, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc. It all makes us happy. We can’t wait to share our passions with our son, Oliver.
Andrew is a high school history teacher and boys’ Varsity soccer coach. I, Ashley, am an executive assistant at a national non-profit organization and I volunteer coach for Special Olympics of Northern California.
We share our home with two dogs, one cat, and two geckos. I LOVE animals. All animals. Our big dog, Otter, is a yellow lab mix, and our little dog, Buck, is a deer head chihuahua. Both are the sweetest canines around! Buck is kind of the miniature version of Otter…see??
Our cat, River, on the other hand is a bit of a spaz! He’s a sweetheart, but he definitely has some feral in him. I found River when he was only four weeks old. He was in the middle of the road, very ill and not moving when cars would zip by. Having my affinity for animals, I saved him. He was in pretty bad shape! But with some medicine and a lot of love, he has grown into a beautiful, loving cat.
Our goal is to one day own a home on some land, where we can have every animal imaginable. Every animal deserves a loving home. 🙂
Well, that is a little insight into our lives. We are so glad you stopped by and we hope you continue to follow our journey.
