Tim & Chelsie

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our profile and for considering us as potential parents for your child. We are loving people who enjoy spending our time together and enjoy spending time with the children in our lives. We hope you do consider us because we are so excited to parent a child of our own and share our love with them.

Our Leisure Time

Starting Our Hike

Chelsie loves reading books while Tim enjoys watching car shows on TV and actually working on cars when he gets a chance. We also love going to do touristy things wherever we live or visit on vacation, like visiting local museums or driving through the mountains. Since we live in Colorado, we have been fortunate to enjoy the beautiful hiking available here. We also enjoy going bowling with each other and family when they visit.

We look forward to taking our children to age appropriate hikes, aquariums, parks, museums, and whatever else we can find to do that will be fun and beneficial for our child. We also are excited about future vacations that we can share with them. We look forward to reading to them daily and encouraging them to learn something from every activity we do.

What it Means to be Parents

We Are So Excited to be on This Journey

For us, being parents is the next step in our lives. We have been looking forward to this for a very long time and are excited to be on this journey. We are ready to share our values with a child and we are excited to have the responsibility of helping shape them in to the people that they are meant to be. We will enjoy watching them learn and grow every day and are excited to see their personalities develop. Based on our experience with nephews and nieces, we expect we will like showing them love and just interacting with them on a daily basis. We know it will be much different when we are parents, but we are so ready to be more than the fun Aunt and Uncle.

Discussing Adoption

We believe children deserve to know their history. We have a few basic adoption children’s books to ensure they are familiar with adoption and what that means to them. We will tell them everything we can about their adoption story as they grow, age appropriately. We also hope to have an open adoption so our child will be able to know their whole family. We know this will help us to answer many of the questions our child may have along the way about their adoption story. We have also prepared for the possibility that we may not be able to have an open adoption and will do our best to give our child as much information that we can in that situation.

Our Extended Families

With Chelsie's Family

With both of our extended families, board and card games are a big tradition that happens at every family get together. Games are something that everyone in our family enjoys and it is a great way to bring us all together to have some good laughs. Tim loves games like Skip-bo and Spoons, and Chelsie loves Spoons and board games. Our families always take turns letting someone new pick the next game to play. One time, we went to Tim's sister's house for game night and played Spoons, Tim tried to take Chelsie's spoon and his sister's dog ran up on her lap to lick and jump on Tim to protect her. We have also bought our nephew children's board games and he was so excited to get to take a turn to pick the next game to join in on.

Christmas with Tim's Family

Even though we unfortunately do not have family nearby right now, we make several trips a year to visit and have had family come visit us as well. With Tim in the military we have been fortunate to live in beautiful places and look forward to where we will move in the future. When Tim retires we do plan to move back to Texas to be close to family.

Our families have been so excited since we announced our plans to adopt. Everyone has been really supportive and made it known they will love any children that join our family.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

We currently live in beautiful Colorado. Our neighborhood is really nice and has a great community. So far every neighbor we have talked to about adoption has been supportive and offered us baby items or said to get in contact if we need anything or to set up play dates in the future. There are many children in the neighborhood and there are often many playing outside. There is even a playground within walking distance of our house.

Beautiful Views in Colorado

Every summer, our community has vendor fairs every weekend where locals can sell products or food. In the winter there are occasionally snow storms, so you will often see families suited up in warm coats to build snowmen or have snowball fights. For Halloween there is a tradition of a boo event where treats are left on neighbors porches throughout October.

Our house is 3 stories including a finished basement. There are 4 bedrooms, one we have made an office. Tim's favorite room is the game room in the basement. Chelsie's current favorite room is the nursery we are working on upstairs, as we have started buying necessary baby items. We love our home and our community and are excited to share it with a child.

From Us to You

We wanted to thank you for taking the time getting to know us by reading our profile. We know that you have a difficult decision to make, and we just want you to know you are in our prayers.

We met at church when we were still in high school and have been together ever since. We went to college together and were married two years before we graduated. We have moved several places since then and are currently enjoying our time in Colorado.

Chelsie recently got certified to be a Registered Nurse and has been doing pediatric home care for the last year. Before this, she had several jobs that involved working with kids and has really developed a lot of skills that will help her as a parent. When we finally have a child of our own, Chelsie will take about six months off to care for our child in the early stages of development before returning to work part time.

Tim joined the Air Force in 2012 and is currently serving as a Captain here in Colorado. He has a degree in Computer Engineering and works with computers for the military. The military has given Tim the opportunity to be a leader in the work place, which will be an asset in his role as the leader of our family.

We are excited to parent a child and are looking forward to the opportunity of helping our child grow and develop. We want to create an environment of love and opportunities for our children to learn and have fun experiences. We also want to ensure that this child grows up knowing how to respect others and that we positively reinforce their good behavior. We are also looking forward to the opportunity of going on family vacations to explore parts of the world. The main goal of our travels would be to create great memories for our children and us.

We know that we will love this child as much as we would love a biological child. We will make sure they know that even though they might have a different journey that led them to our family, they are just as important a piece of our family as any other. We know that it will be important for us to encourage our child to pursue their dreams, and we want to do whatever it takes to help them be successful in that pursuit. We will encourage open communication about dreams and desires and make sure our child lives a life that makes them happy and safe.

We know that one of the most important pieces of our child’s story is where they came from and who they are, and we want to make sure that we are open and honest with what that story is. We want to include you in their life and have communication available for them in whatever way you are willing. We want to send updates and pictures on a regular basis so that you know that your child is doing well and is very loved. We are also open to trying to make yearly visits work, depending on where we are living due to the military. Ultimately, we want to be sure that the child knows who they are without any doubts, have an appreciation for adoption and know it was right for them. We want to make sure that they know you did what was best for them and that we honor the decisions that you made for your child.

We are so ready to be parents and are so grateful for the opportunity through adoption. Please keep us in mind as you make a decision. Thank you for being brave and selfless as you consider what will be best for your child.

With love and respect,

Tim & Chelsie
