(By Amy) Tim is my best friend and partner in life. It is amazing watching him be such a wonderful dad to our son, Owen. Tim is so kind and loving with Owen. He enjoys spending time with all of us as a family, and loves his one-on-one time with Owen, as well. Although Tim is often a big kid at heart, he can also be a bit of an old soul, too. He enjoys the connections that he has made with the older adults in his life, such as his parents and some of the more senior teachers at work. He enjoys peaceful walks on the nearby trails and reflecting on life. His patience, kindness, and fun loving side are just a few of the many ways Tim is an amazing person, husband, and dad.
(By Tim) Amy is the part of me that I never knew I was missing until I found her. She has made my life better in so many ways. She is a person of incredible strength, courage, and determination. I watched in awe at what she was willing to put herself through in order to try to grow our family as we struggled with infertility. Throughout our marriage, I have felt how loving, caring, and patient she can be. She takes that same love, caring, and patience with her to work each day as a speech-language pathologist working with preschool aged kids in a nearby school district. She has dedicated her professional life to helping kids be the best they can be. So it has been no surprise to see how amazing she has been with our son, Owen. She is there for him no matter what. Through the fun and happy times like reading lots, and I mean lots, of books, or going down a slide that he just has to go down but is a bit too little to do by himself yet. As well as the not as fun times, like 2 a.m. wakeups and needing someone to rock him when he is sick and throwing up. As time moves on, Amy will always be there to provide our family with whatever we need. Her ability to love unconditionally is just one of the things I truly admire about her.
