About Us

We met online, and we have been connected at the hip ever since. Tania is from Pennsylvania and is an aircraft mechanic. Alisha is from Washington, D.C., and is a security specialist. We always find time to travel and explore new places, and we love to learn about different cultures and try new foods. On a Saturday, you will find us either trying new foods, watching HGTV, reading a good book, or planning our next trip! When it comes down to it, we are both really just big kids at heart! We love amusement parks, beaches, ice cream, sporting events, cooking, exercising, festivals, spending time with family and friends, and random weekend getaways. We also love spending quiet nights at home with a good movie or playing our favorite board games!

Our Home

Our home is a beautiful three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath townhome centrally located between two big cities. We have plenty of space for a little one to grow and explore. Our home is in a wonderful school district and surrounded by nature and wildlife. We have a state park within walking distance and views of the lake during the winter from our deck. Our neighborhood is kid- and pet-friendly and very active. We can’t wait to experience trips to the playground with your baby. When the weather is nice, we enjoy walks along the trails and exploring all the neighborhood has to offer. While out on walks, you are sure to find kids riding bikes and joggers and walkers getting their daily exercise.

Our Extended Family

Family is very special to us. We both come from large extended families that are very supportive. Between the two of us, we have two brothers, two sisters, two nephews, four nieces, and hundreds of cousins. Each year we spend Thanksgiving with one family and Christmas with the other.

Both families are very close, and one tradition we have is gathering both families for a family vacation together each year. Another family tradition is when it’s someone’s birthday, we all set up a FaceTime call and sing “Happy Birthday,” have cake, and laugh whenever we can’t gather in person. Alisha’s family is about a 35-minute drive away, and Tania’s family is a couple hours’ drive away in Pennsylvania. Our families are very excited and can’t wait to be introduced to a new addition! We can’t wait to include your baby in our family gatherings and vacations!

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption has been a topic of discussion for us since the very beginning of our relationship. We always knew we wanted to be parents and that adoption was the avenue we were going to take. Both of us have always wanted to adopt since we were kids. Tania tells the story of how she would ask her parents often if they could adopt, and Alisha has witnessed people going through the adoption process and always felt it was something she wanted to do. To us, adoption is a wonderful blessing to give someone the opportunity to have a family of their own.
