About Tim

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. He enjoys spending time with all of us as a family, and loves his one-on-one time with Owen, as well. They enjoy trips to the park, playing cars, reading books, andnwatching silly videos, just to name a few. And I know, without a doubt, that he will share all of these attributes againnas we welcome a new little one into our family. Becoming parents has also strengthened our marriage. While parenting is very rewarding, it can also be very challenging.Tim is also kind, loving, and patient with not only his family, but also

the students that he works with. He pours himself into his job as a teacher and has an incredible ability to connect.

About Amy

By Tim: I know how hokey this is going to sound, but it is absolutely true. 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. So it has been no surprise to see how amazing she has been with our son, Owen.

Our Home

We’ve made our home in a small midwestern college town about twenty miles outside of a major metropolitan area. We are surrounded by many beautiful walking and biking trails

that connect to several parks in our area.

We built our house in 2013 with two things in mind; a place to make a lifetime of memories together, and a fun and safe place to raise kids. Our home has three finished bedrooms

with plans to finish a fourth soon. It also has a big basement that has been turned into a playroom, and a great backyard to run and play in. Our neighborhood is full of families and

children playing outside every evening. The neighbors get along great and often spend evenings chatting while the kids play outside. We couldn’t imagine a better place to raise a

family.

Our Family

Tim: My family is larger than most. I have three older brothers, and one older sister. One of the unique things about my family is the age gap between my siblings and me. My parents were in their early forties when I was born, so my brothers and sister were all between eight to sixteen years older than me. One of the nice things about this was that I always had a lot of people looking out for me.

Amy: My family is not necessarily a conventional one of sorts. For most of my life I have looked up to my aunts and uncles, and now, as an adult, I spend the most time with them. They have always played a big role in my life. They were there for all of my milestones (birthdays, holidays, graduations, wedding).

Owen

Owen is a spunky, fun loving, kind hearted boy! He loves puppies, dinosaurs, vehicles, blocks, and all things outdoors! We have enjoyed every day with him and are truly grateful to

be his parents. He brings so much joy and adventure to our family. Whether it’s a trip to the zoo, visiting family, enjoying a community festival, or just spending quality family time at home,

we have lots of fun together!

Owen was born in July 2017, and our family was forever changed for the better. We continue to have a good relationship with Owen’s birth mom and enjoy yearly visits with her. We have been open with Owen about his adoption and include it as just a normal part of his life’s story. He loves reading books with us about adoption, including his own adoption story book.
