We would like to thank you for taking the time to look through our information. Just by taking the time to read through our profile, you’ve become a part of our journey to growing our family for which we are eternally grateful. We’ve been praying that the right person might read about us and be moved to get to know us more.

We’d love to start by telling you a little about us. We have known each other for many years, meeting first while in high school. While we didn’t start dating until after Joshua graduated, we consider ourselves as close to high school sweethearts as one can get! We’ve spent much of our lives together and have in many ways, grown up together.

We’ve been discussing adoption for several years following the news of needing medical intervention due to infertility. We made the difficult decision of utilizing medical intervention for a few years following that news but continued to discuss adoption during that time as well. We’re excited to fully commit to growing our family through adoption and the rollercoaster of emotions that come with it.

Through our time together, we have enjoyed many adventures together. We love to travel and explore the world around us by visiting new states, National Parks, and more! While traveling far from home can be very intriguing, we also enjoy exploring close to home and finding local eateries and shops. We’re so excited for a little bundle to join in on those adventures! We can’t wait to experience these places through their eyes and to make so many more memories traveling as a family!

We enjoy being home in each other’s company with our pets just as much as we enjoy exploring. On a normal day, you could find us at home watching movies, reading our books, or playing board games. We’re already stocked up on books for your child to enjoy! We are excited to enjoy these times at home with them! We enjoy hosting dinners for our family and enjoying a nice day at home. We often attend church events or Bible studies throughout the week. Our church members are so excited to see another child added to our congregation! We can’t wait to share our church with them to participate in Trunk-or-Treat, youth activities, and more! We enjoy going to the movies to see the latest DC, Marvel, or Harry Potter movies as we consider ourselves a bit nerdy. On the weekends, you could find us enjoying a slow day at home or enjoying the presence of our nieces. We’re excited to see if your child chooses a wand or a cape and which fandom they enjoy the most! We’re ready to share these moments with your child and excited to see them fit into our family gatherings and outings!

We enjoy being with our three nieces as much as we can. We have two nieces that are around a year to a year and a few months old. Our oldest niece is around 8 years old. While we both love them, Uncle Josh is one of their favorite people! We enjoy taking her on “days of fun” which typically include her favorite food, sushi, and an activity of her choice, typically Science City, painting pottery, and the zoo. We are so excited to have your child join in on these days of fun! We are slowly adding to our traditions, like Boo at the Zoo, which we’re excited to take your child to with their cousins!

We, along with our families, are very excited to grow our family through adoption. We’re very excited to share our family traditions and have more people to share our lives with. While our traditions are important to us, we are excited to bring other traditions into our home with a new addition to our family. We would love to add your child’s heritage, culture, and family traditions to the ones we currently have. Through that, we’re excited to teach them to cook and bake foods from their culture. We’re so excited to make messes in the kitchen with them as we make these special treats!

Our hope is that we would have open communication with you, their birth family. We would love to share videos, pictures, letters, and visits throughout the years to stay connected. Not only would this help integrate our families, but it will also provide them the opportunity to better understand themselves and where they came from. This will allow us to answer questions that your child might have as they grow up and grow in their identity.

We would again like to thank you for taking time out of your life to learn a little about us. We are eternally grateful that we’ve become a part of your story. While nothing we can do or say will make this transition easier for you, please know that you and your child are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. We are praying for your health, guidance in whatever decision you choose, and peace in whatever decision you make for your family.

With love,
Tesa and Joshua
