We'll support our child in all they can dream in a safe and happy home filled with love, learning and a lively puppy!

Hello! We are Tim and Dan, have been together 7+ years, and are currently living in a cozy, bungalow-style home in the Como Park neighborhood of St. Paul, which is close to a variety of family-friendly amenities. We’re walking distance to the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, North Dale Recreation Center and Como Park Elementary; and a short drive to the Minnesota State Fairgrounds and Rosedale Mall. Our favorite activity throughout the week is walking our dog Charlie around Lake Como.

Dan works as the Finance Director in a Twin Cities city and Tim is a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner working with adolescents and adults. Dan and Tim both have Master's degrees in their field and love what they do for a living. Dan gets to work in local government helping make positive change for its citizens, and Tim gets to treat mental illness through therapy and medication management. We both love what we do and feel lucky to be in our respective fields!

Our Families and Friends:

We both enjoy active lives and lots of hobbies. Tim loves to bake and share his creations with friends and coworkers. There is no shortage of sweet treats in the house, and Tim hopes your child will be excited to get creative in the kitchen with him one day. Dan likes current events, video games and golf — a sport he hopes your child will come to love as much as he does (if that’s even possible!). Apart from our hobbies, we have several close friends that would come to be “aunts and uncles” to your child. We regularly go to events, movies and restaurants together, and they’re all so excited that we want to grow our family. On weekdays, we often take Charlie for an evening walk around Como Lake before coming home to eat dinner. On weekends, Dan makes it a point to continue his father’s tradition of cooking breakfast while Tim sleeps. We both imagine Dan waking the entire family up to the sounds and scents of bacon frying.

Dan grew up in a loving home in Oak Grove. He and his older brother, Paul, grew up on a lake and would regularly fish and swim. Dan’s dad, Curt, is a thoughtful and kind man that enjoys the outdoors and baseball. His mom, Renee, is a funny and generous person that loves spending time with family. Tim was born in North Carolina before his family relocated to Rochester. He has one younger sister, Heather. His mom, Shari, and step-dad, Bob, both adventurous, fun–loving people that enjoy music.

Our Plans:

As parents, we will always try to keep certain promises to your child to ensure they live a full and happy life. We want you to know your child will always be loved by us, be supported by our friends and family and be the center of our world. We promise…

To learn from our mistakes, keep laughter in our home and teach your child to be strong and resilient.

To provide your child with a great education and instill in them the importance of learning and self-discovery.

To teach your child about diversity, how to understand the issues around them and how to make the world a better place.

To show your child the world, go on adventures with them and share life experiences whenever — and wherever — we can.

To learn the rest as we go, have lots of fun together and always take on life as a family.

Our Gratitude:

We understand that your journey up to this point, especially as you think about placing your child for adoption, must be tough and full of difficult emotions. We are grateful for your courage to consider adoption and hope that we can continue this part of your story together.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering helping us expand our family. Please know that is you choose us, we promise to share your story with your child, commit to openness throughout their life, and raise them with love, laughter and education in a supportive home.

Best Always-

Dan and Tim

Who We Are

How It All Began:

Like many couples today, we first met through a dating app in November 2013. Dan likes to say that “he’s the one to blame” for our relationship since he asked for the first date. After a year of commuting to see each other, we decided to move in together in the Lowertown neighborhood of St. Paul. Soon after, we rescued a dog, Charlie. To give Charlie and our future child a safe and comfortable home with room to play, we bought a single-family home in St. Paul’s Como Park neighborhood, where we still live today.

Our first major vacation as a couple was an exciting trip to Hawaii. While visiting Hanauma Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Dan walked Tim to the far end of the beach and proposed. It was a beautiful memory we both cherish.

Like most people, we have our quirks. We are both afraid of heights, but that won’t stop Dan from riding rollercoasters with our son or daughter. Tim isn’t a big fan of horror movies and Dan can’t stand spiders — so Tim saves the day whenever one wanders into the house!

Adoption Diary

Homemade Cupcakes

Friday Evening Walk Around Lake Como

June 4, 2021: The 3 of us took the opportunity to enjoy a Friday evening walk around Lake Como. We stopped half way and we all had a refreshing beverage while relaxing in front of The Como Pavilion and the waterfall at The Dock and Paddle restaurant. Hope to have a stroller along someday!
