A Letter from Tim & Tia
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us! We look forward to sharing our life, our love, our family and our home with your child. Having gone through the adoption process before we were blessed with our daughter Zariyah. We are so excited to grow our family and adopt a son! We truly feel that GOD is leading us down the path of completing our family through adoption. We will shower your son with love, provide him with the best of life’s opportunities and offer him many moments to create beautiful, lasting memories.
We met while working at a medical center where we started as friends. In 2002 we started dating and now we have been together for 17 years and are prepared to adopt our second child. Due to infertility issues, adoption was discussed early on in our relationship. Tia always dreamed of adopting children and Tim has always had a deep appreciation for adoption, as his mother was an adopted child herself. In our spare time, we love to travel and enjoy some of the simple things in life whether it be movie nights at home or enjoying a nice nature walk outdoors. In 2018 we were blessed with the adoption of our daughter Zariyah and she has been a true blessing in our lives. We are so looking forward to bringing our son home and watching him grow up alongside his sister.
Initially, I was drawn to Tim’s presence and, as I was able to get to know him more, I became most attracted to his confidence, humble spirit, intelligence, life goals, aspirations and ability to make me laugh until my cheeks and stomach hurt. Tim is the type of husband that treats our daughter and I like royalty. He is very loving, attentive and always makes it a priority to ensure that our family is first taken care of. Tim is a phenomenal orator, teacher, and motivator. He is a very well- known and often sought after leader and mentor that loves to help others. He is very excited about making father and son memories and completing our family.
When I first saw Tia I was drawn to her smile. She had such a humble spirit and carried herself like a true lady and professional. As soon as I had a one on one conversation with her, I knew immediately that my life would change forever. Tia has a nurturing spirit and encourages me to be my best self. Her love for our daughter and our family is unwavering and everlasting. In her spare time, Tia’s hobbies include honing her skills as a gifted hairstylist and lash technician. She enjoys reading anything dealing with history and watching the national geographic documentaries. She is most looking forward to spending time with our son and making memories through family outings, holiday cookie baking and family game nights just to name a few!
Our daughter, Zariyah, is one and is truly a light in our lives. We are excited to grow our family and watch our children build their sibling relationship.
Both of our families live in the south and along the east coast. Our families are extremely tight-knit and everyone travels to see everyone multiple times throughout the year for special occasions and extended family vacations. When we are not physically with one another we maintain contact through video chats, phone calls, text messages, and emails. As they were with the adoption of our daughter, our families are fully supportive and are excited about our adoption plans. They wait with open arms to welcome our newest addition to the family.
We live in a two-story home in a subdivision that has a number of amenities including a clubhouse, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a lake. Our house was built in 2017 and has an abundance of space inside and out. We have a fenced-in backyard, four bedrooms, including a fully decorated nursery and theater room that we often use for our family movie nights.
Our residential community has many quality rated daycares, schools and our church is only 15 minutes from our home. Our community has a recreation center, malls, several parks, children’s museums, skating rinks, bowling alleys, game rooms, and movie theaters in our close surrounding area.
Our promise is to provide every opportunity for world travel, cultural experiences, and prime education. We also will provide a nurturing environment filled with an abundance of love and endless opportunities to support your son’s dreams and goals. We look forward to creating lasting memories through laughter, smiles and open communication. Our extended family is vast and is eagerly awaiting the chance to welcome your son as the newest addition to the family. We look forward to keeping in touch with you through letters, pictures, and visits.
