Tim & Robyn
We are both pro-life advocates and are sincerely thankful that you've chosen to give your child an opportunity to make his or her imprint on the world. We're hopeful that you give us the privilege of raising your child in our family. In return, we promise to love your child unconditionally and will support, encourage, and nurture him or her to become a kind, respectful, and productive member of society.
Why We Chose Adoption
We are very unlikely to conceive again yet love children and yearn for another child to complete our family. We are both pro-life advocates so we have chosen to adopt a precious child who needs a family like ours that can help him or her thrive and become a productive member of society. We know a number of people who were adopted or have adopted a child and they have all been very supportive. We are financially, emotionally, and physically able to provide your child with a multitude of opportunities and experiences. In addition, your child will grow up with a big brother! Both of us have siblings and cannot imagine life growing up as an only child. There are too many children in this world that need a good family. Let ours be that family for your child!
Robyn graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a B.S. in occupational therapy and has worked in homes, hospitals, schools, and skilled nursing facilities with patients ranging in age from 5 to 105. Robyn also has a Master of Business Administration and currently manages the daily operations of the physical, occupational, and speech therapy departments in two different buildings. Tim graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a B.S. in economics. After graduating from college, Tim and his brothers started a company that sells bags lined with chemicals that prevent steel and other metals from rusting. Tim is also a partner in two other much smaller companies that sell packaging such as boxes, bags, and wood pallets and is the head football coach for his high school alma mater. Tim and Robyn both have a good deal of flexibility at work and can arrange their schedules so that their children do not need to be placed in day care.
Favorite Vacation Spot
We love to travel and intend to expose your child to different cultures throughout the country/world. There is much to learn about the world through actual experiences. Some things you just cannot learn or appreciate by reading about in a book. Between us, we have traveled to 5 different continents and visited a number of countries. Robyn has traveled to Morocco, Prague, Germany, Ireland, Costa Rica, Peru, and Italy amongst many other countries. During those trips, Robyn's rappelled, parasailed, zip lined through rain forests, snorkeled, and kissed the Blarney Stone. Tim has had the unique pleasure of doing business in China and has had the privilege of walking along the Great Wall of China. He's also enjoyed vacationing in Hawaii and Alaska. Our son is 19 months old and has already visited 5 states and vacationed this year at Atlantis in the Bahamas. We are currently in the process of planning two trips in 2018. We're hoping to vacation in Jamaica for a week and will spend a week in Wyoming for a family reunion where we'll tour Yellowstone National Park. In summary, we don't have a favorite vacation spot. Anywhere in the world where we're together is our favorite place to be. "Bad" trips just turn into great memories!
Our Extended Families
We are currently a family of three- Robyn, Tim and Timothy Jr., (a.k.a. "Deuce”), who is 19 months old. We have a very supportive extended family consisting of parents, a grandparent, siblings, nieces, and nephews who can't wait to meet our new bundle of joy! Both sides of our immediate family live within 75 minutes of us so we see everyone often; however, during the school year, visits tend to decrease a little due to extracurricular activities. Holidays are filled with lots of food, laughter, and general chaos with all of the little ones running around! Fortunately, we have a schedule for each holiday that enables us to visit both sides of the family without being rushed. For example, Robyn's parents host Thanksgiving dinner the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Tim's mother hosts dinner on Thanksgiving Day. We celebrate Christmas with Robyn's side of the family on 12/25 and celebrate Christmas with Tim's side of the family the following weekend. We are very blessed to belong to such a great combined family who we're anxious to introduce to your child!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in an excellent school district in the state of Pennsylvania. Our home is located in the suburbs, but we enjoy the pleasure of quickly getting into the city via our transit system. We live in a stone house with a slate roof in a community with very little traffic. On average, we may see 10 cars pass our house in an hour. We have a nice sized home with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a sunk-in living room, eat-in kitchen, dining room, game room, and enclosed sun porch. Our property sits on approximately a quarter of an acre of land, which is perfect for sled riding and a baseball or football game! We also have a flagstone patio where we love to grill. We live only a few miles from several parks, playgrounds, walking trails, tennis courts, basketball courts, an outdoor hockey rink, etc. In addition, we also own a townhome in State College, PA. We own suite tickets to every home PSU game in Beaver Stadium so we spend a fair amount of time in that home during the fall. Behind our townhome there is a swing set and sand box and across the street there is a club house with a pool and exercise room.
From Us to You
Writing this letter to you has been the most challenging part of the adoption process for us thus far. It is impossible to describe in words how much love we have for a child that we have never met. It is equally difficult to describe how thankful we are that you chose adoption for your child. We applaud your strength, selflessness, and commitment to find the perfect family for your baby. Are we that perfect family? Yes! We will instill good morals and values, teach him or her to be kind, respectful, and generous, and raise him or her to be a productive member of society. Obviously, there is no one specific manual on parenting and we are going to make mistakes. We have definitely received some on-the-job training as parents with most of that training coming from a toddler. Fortunately, we are quick learners, have a strong support system, and parents who are excellent role models.
We aren't perfect, but we're perfect for each other! We've been married for two years. As a couple, we genuinely enjoy each other's company. We share the same Christian beliefs, political views, and have a number of similar interests. We both enjoy traveling, watching the national news, and love sports. Your child will probably grow up watching and playing a number of sports since Tim played football at Penn State and is currently the head football coach at a local high school. We also own box seats to every home Penn State football game, our family owns 5 NFL season tickets, and we belong to a country club with unlimited golf and an outdoor pool. We are both established in our chosen careers and have a lot of flexibility with our schedules. Tim is able to work from home and Robyn works less than five miles away enabling her to come home for lunch. Robyn is independent, thrifty, patient, and loyal. Tim is assertive, generous, athletic, and intelligent. Together we make a great team!
We believe it is important for your child to know that he or she was adopted as early as he or she can understand what the concept means, but we do not intend to belabor the point since being adopted will not define him or her. Your child will know that you loved him or her so much that you put aside your wants for his or her needs. We are open to remaining in touch through emails and photos so that you can feel a part of your child's life and be reassured that you made the right decision in choosing our family.
We recognize that there is a great deal of trust shared between us during this process. We have put our faith in God and trust in His plan for us and your child and we hope that you trust us to give your child a loving and stable home where there is no shortage of hugs, kisses, and bed time stories!
