Tyler & Chelsea
Last Activity: 1 day ago

Adoption is a beautiful thing, and we are blessed to be able to be a part of this journey!

To Someone Special,

Writing this letter isn't particularly simple. It's sometimes hard to know what to say to someone who is on the brink of making a difficult decision, or in the middle of a trying time. There are so many things that we could say, but you've probably heard them more than once and may not be interested to hear them again. However, before we begin to tell you about ourselves, please know that we will never try to pretend that we know exactly how you are feeling at this time. Honestly, we can't imagine how hard this decision is for you and possibly your family. One thing we have learned from personally going through unexpected and trying times is that a support system is very essential to being able to make it through tough times in one piece. Please understand that we are willing to be a part of that support system if we are wanted or needed.

Our names are Tyler and Chelsea. We have been married for 6 1/2 years, and have experienced so much in so little time. It almost feels as though we have been married forever! Tyler has graduated from the University of Utah in Spanish, and Chelsea is a cosmetologist who is hoping to get back to her studies in Human Services and Addiction Counseling. Shortly after Tyler finished his schooling, he was hired by a great company where he quickly began to climb the ladder. Within 3 years, we lived in Iowa, Montana, Utah, Montana (yes, moved there twice), Wyoming, and then to Chelsea's favorite, Washington. Washington has been good to us, and we've created a great life here. A year ago we purchased a home on Camano Island. It's a small, attached island that is filled with a great, supportive community. The minute we drove onto the Island for the first time, we knew it was where we were supposed to be! We have a beautiful modest home that we are slowly updating, and Chelsea is driving Tyler crazy with all of her projects that she has started or put on Tyler's to do list. We have a great fenced back yard, and live in a quiet safe neighborhood. We couldn't be more pleased with where we have decided to grow our family.

Almost a year ago, after dealing with our own trials for many years, we decided that it would be a great idea for us to become foster parents. It's been one of the hardest things that we have done, but definitely one of the most rewarding. We have been blessed to be able to be apart of these children's lives, and watch their progress emotionally, mentally, and physically in our home. There is something very rewarding about being able to provide a home, where a child who has experienced much trauma, can feel safe and loved. Is this something that we thought we would do? No, but it is one of those decisions that we were guided to, that has changed our lives forever. Our marriage has never been stronger because we have had to learn how to work as a team when difficulties lie before us. We have learned things about ourselves that would've taken us years to learn. We have learned compassion, patience, sensitivity, and that our hearts are capable of an indescribable love. It truly is amazing to watch these children and their parents grow. As much as this is rewarding, it is not permanent. We are so ready to create a family that is permanent, and that we can call our own.

We are sports enthusiasts, outdoor loving, movie watching people. Tyler loves working on cars and is currently working on his Skyline. He loves to spend time with Chelsea, and play on his softball team. Chelsea loves to be by the ocean whenever she can. Hence the reason why we live on an island. Her favorite thing is to spend time with her family, laugh too loud, eat yummy food, and have awesome conversations. We have a strong, deep rooted faith in Christ that navigates our lives. We deeply embrace and desire to share our exciting, family centered, and loved filled lives with a child. There is no greater gift that we could receive.

We pray that you may find peace and have comfort in the choice that you make for your sweet baby.

Sincerely,

Tyler and Chelsea

Who We Are

Tyler and I knew each other in high school, but at that point in our lives, neither of us would've dated each other. After high school, Tyler played baseball for Dixie State University, and then went to serve a 2 yr. mission for our church in Paraguay. I graduated high school and attended Dixie State University as well. We ended up going to the same church building. Tyler would always "flirt" with one of my friends that I was always with (he claims he wasn't flirting with her but just knew her better). He would always say to me, "guess I will see you around!" It drove me CRAZY!

Eventually, I moved out of that church building. Shorty after, I received a Facebook message from Tyler basically asking me out. I was with my cousin, and he said there was no way in heck that I should go out with Ty. "The guy doesn't even have the guts to ask you out in person!!" I ignored my cousin because I knew there was something Special with Tyler. Plus he was really cute!

After Tyler's mission for our church, he was a little awkward and had definitely been out of the game for awhile. He fell fast for me. I remember the first time he told me that he loved me... I knew I really liked him, but I wouldn't have called it Love. All I could say back was, "Thanks!" He was so understanding and told me that it's ok not to say it back, that he's not worried , and that he could wait patiently for that day.

Well, the day came, and I fell in love with him. Shortly after, Tyler came over to my house around 2am and asked me to marry him. I, of course, said yes!

From the day we got married to now, there has been so many things that happened. We both attended and graduated from college, I got my cosmetology license, we've moved to 5 different states, Tyler's received many promotions in his job, we struggled with infertility (IUI's, Invetro, all of that fun stuff), became foster parents, bought our first house, cried together, laughed together, but most importantly, grew together.

We love our foster babies, and love being able to see their family slowly being able to be reunified.

We love being outdoors, going to movies, going out to eat, shopping (Chelsea), but mostly we like being at home and enjoy being able to relax!
