State We live in: Texas

dear expectant mother

Before anything else, we want to say thank you. We do not know you yet, but we can easily infer that you must be an infinitely brave and selfless woman to be on this journey. You should know that you’re a hero to two parties in this story. First, you’re a hero to the family that you ultimately choose to raise your child. More importantly, you're a hero to your baby. Your child will always know this about you regardless of which family you choose. We truly appreciate and respect your consideration, time, and decision, but we can never wholly express the gratitude you deserve for giving the gift of family to those who couldn't have it without you.

We have dreamed of starting a family since we first married, and with your help, we promise to give your child the same love, security, support, and affection as you would yourself. We can't promise your child will never fall and scrape a knee or that they'll never know heartbreak or disappointment, but we can promise we will be there when it happens, pick them up, dry their tears, and, like you, strive to always be their hero.

Your child will grow up with an unconditional love equal to that of your own. Their story will be filled with memorable moments of tradition, values, and adoration that will shape their character, preparing them for their own adventures as they set out to leave their mark on the world.

You’re a hero to the family that you ultimately choose to raise your child.

About Us

We met in 2013 when Tyler was a senior in high school and Robert was working as a bank teller in Texas. We were introduced through a mutual friend and have been inseparable since. Tyler was set to move to Germany to finish high school, but love had other plans. Robert proposed in February of 2014 with the blessing of Tyler’s mother at his family home. We married just one year later in Tyler’s hometown in New Mexico just before same-sex marriage was recognized nationwide. Robert is a regional manager for a quickly growing car wash company, and Tyler has diligently worked as an optician for nine years. We love snack-filled movie nights, spontaneous camping trips, adventures into unfamiliar territory, and, of course, spoiling our many nieces and nephews.

Our Home & Pets

We own our beautiful home located in a quiet and quaint suburban area. We are blessed to have a large backyard perfect for family cookouts and bonfires. Conveniently, we are just a short distance from a major supermarket, making it impossible to ever be without. We have two very friendly dogs: Charli and Berkeley. The girls love their walks at the park just down the road from our home. Our home is perfectly decorated for every major holiday. The local school district is known for its diversity and inclusivity.

Our Extended Family

Our families have positively shaped both of our lives, which is the same impact we hope to have in your child’s life. Tyler has three brothers he enjoys speaking to frequently. His one sister is his best friend in the entire world, and he often goes to her for advice. Robert has three sisters and two brothers he would absolutely do anything for.

We love spending time with both sides of our family. The holidays were a huge deal in Tyler’s early life, and he has instilled those traditions into our marriage. Our Christmas decorations are usually up the day after Halloween, and we even get matching pajamas to wear every Christmas Eve. These traditions have brought much joy into our marriage, which is why we’re excited to continue to create new traditions for your child too.

We believe family is defined by unconditional love and lasting memories that will continue to shape who we are thanks to the support and affection of our blended brood. These are the same values we hope to fill your child’s heart and mind with as we continue to write our family story.

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption has been a huge part of both of our lives, making it an obvious choice when we decided it was time to grow our family. Tyler was adopted by a step-parent at a young age, and Robert was raised by his grandparents from birth. Together, we are excited and fully committed to stepping into the world of a child as parents who promise to love them, defend them, protect them, be their advocate, teach them, actively listen, support them, and, most importantly, absorb their hurt and pain while returning comfort, safety, and stability. Our hearts are open as wide as our arms on this journey to expanding our family.
