We are a family of three who hope for an open adoption. We welcome a little one of any race and gender. As you look through our profile, We hope you will get a glimpse of our family life and values. Adoption has always been a part of our future and we are excited to add to our little family. We are not perfect people but we strive to be the best parents we can be to our little ones.
Tyler grew up in Virginia Beach and spent a lot of his childhood either at the beach or at the lake. Manna grew up in Eastern North Carolina, spending most of her life on a boat and living on the Outer Banks. If you can imagine, we have a love for being on the water.
We met and started dating our freshman year of college. From the beginning we could tell that we fit each other. Each passing year, we grew alongside each other into the people we are now. Settling in to the Richmond area, we found a great community of friends, a wonderful church home and great jobs that fit our passions.
In 2015, we welcomed our rainbow baby Nora She into our lives (after a miscarriage due to scar tissue). She is a mighty wee leader and it's been a joy to watch her grow into her own little self. Adoption has always been a part of our future and we are excited to now be ready to add to our little family. We are not perfect people but we strive to be the best parents we can be to our little ones.
My friend Amy called and said she needed a little breather and wanted to come over with the kids after work. Levi, her son, is Nora’s bestie. They played and did dance moves all night and we all took turns holding baby Mary. It was nice to get some sweet snuggles in with this little love!
Nora’s teacher is reinforcing good habits with dental care. Nora may not like the taste of any toothpaste brand we’ve tried but this week she’s been excited to do it. Well that is until she taste the toothpaste.
