Hi! Thanks for checking us out. We’re the Teixeira Family: Jonathan, Amanda, and Josie.
We’ve been married since October 2011, and our daughter, Josie is one and a half. We live just outside of Denver in Lakewood, Colorado. We’re looking to grow our family once again through adoption. We hope this page can serve as some sort of introduction. If you’d like to talk more or have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
We both work for FOCUS – The Fellowship of Catholic University Students. We’ve been missionaries with FOCUS since 2008. We currently work out of FOCUS Headquarters in Golden, CO. Jonathan runs FOCUS’ social media and develops content for special projects. Amanda works part-time (mostly from home) and is helping FOCUS develop a new summer program experience for college students. We’ve also recently started our own business – True Good & Beautiful, LLC – and are working on our first project, The Infertility Survival Guide, due out later this year.
Jonathan is a creative mind, loving father, and many times, the life of the party. His outgoing personality livens up any given situation, and his considerate and warm nature makes people feel welcome from the get-go. He spends free time reading, playing board games, building DIY electronics projects, and running. His technical know-how makes this website work. He grew up in York, PA, home of the York Peppermint Patty.
Amanda is a devoted mother, loyal friend, and the main writer for our blog – True Good and Beautiful. Amanda’s love for the outdoors drives many of the family’s adventures like day hikes and weekend trips to nearby mountain towns. She makes sure to keep the family’s schedule organized and fun-filled, and our stomachs happy with her great cooking. Amanda hails from Omaha, NE, also known as The Good Life.
Josephine (Josie) is a delightful girl who loves exploring, laughing, tickling, taking baths, and readings books with Mom and Dad. She became a Teixeira through adoption in November 2014 and is looking for a sibling to follow in her footsteps. Josie loves playing with other kids and will make an excellent sister. She’s got a fun personality, a sweet demeanor, and lots of love to share.
Wrigley is a two-year-old English Labrador Retriever who plays the role of family dog perfectly. He loves playing outside, eating, and sleeping. He’s a lover and gets along great with Josie.
