Tim & Wendy
Greetings from North Carolina! We are happy to have this opportunity to tell you a little bit about us. We have been married for seven years and are enjoying all of the twists and turns in our life together. We are passionate about adoption as our first choice to complete our family and are thankful you are considering us as adoptive parents for your child.
Adoption in Our Lives
When considering the paths to parenthood, adoption has always been our first choice. The absolute best day of our lives was when we got the call that Finn's birth mother had chosen us to be his parents. The adoption process made our dream of being parents come true and brought us even closer together as a couple. We are thrilled to experience adoption yet again as Finn becomes a big brother and our family expands.
From early on in our relationship, we knew we wanted to be parents together. Some of our happiest childhood memories were created with family and we enjoy creating memories together as our new family. Tim remembers fishing and swimming the summer away at the lake or Cape Cod as well as multiple trips to Fenway, including his first, a present from his dad for his sixth birthday. Growing up, Wendy's family spent their summers swimming, fishing and camping at a nearby lake and riding roller coasters (sometimes over and over again) at a local amusement park.
Through adoption, we have the chance to share these and many more experiences with our children. Whether we are exploring a National Park, enjoying a puzzle on a rainy day, or singing along with the radio, we will make the memories happy ones. Adoption also allows us to welcome birth parents into our circle of friends. Along with our friendship, we offer the peace of mind that your baby will be loved and cared for no matter what.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Tim About Wendy: Wendy is always smiling and tries to capture the positive in every situation. When we get lost somewhere she'll say, "We're on an adventure." She has a great sense of humor and finds things funny that others might miss. She is extremely considerate and I can't think of one person who has a bad impression of her. People like Wendy because she treats everyone with kindness and respect. Wendy has an uncanny knack with children and she is an amazing mom. Finn lights up when she walks in the room and she has a way making him feel special and loved. She always does the right thing even if it isn't the easiest.
Wendy About Tim: I most admire Tim's loyalty, kindness, empathy and commitment. He is always willing to help out and he never gives up on his goals. He is an awesome father to Finn and always has him laughing. He has unbreakable family ties and a great sense of humor. He is cool, calm and collected and has taught me to "Shake it Off" when things get difficult. There is no one else I'd rather raise a family with.

Our House and Neighborhood
Our home is part of a suburban neighborhood in North Carolina. Being a three-hour drive from either the mountains or the beach, there is always an opportunity to explore.
The neighborhood we are part of is full of young, active families so you can usually hear children playing outside, walking their dogs or riding their bikes. We live on a court, just off the main road, so the only traffic on our street is our neighbors.
Our house has a large backyard complete with swings and a tree fort. We have one calm, friendly cat, named Dozer who is truly Wendy's sidekick. He follows her around whenever she is home. There is a bonus room above our garage that makes the perfect playroom. There are lots of shops, restaurants and parks in our area for any type of outing we may be in the mood for.
The town we live in has lots of activities for children. There are opportunities for youth sports league, theater, we are members of the YMCA and in the summer, our park shows Friday night movies at sunset.We love where we live. When we moved from New York City to our house we were thrilled with the space, yard, trees and community to raise a family. We have plenty of room for in our hearts and home for a new addition to our family.
Our Extended Families
Our lives changed for the better when we became parents with Finn joining our family in September of 2016. We both come from large families and the people we love are a huge influence in our lives. Tim is number eight of nine children and Wendy has three younger sisters. As a result, we have lots of fun being Mom and Dad to Finn as well as Uncle Tim and Aunt Wendy to Finn's fourteen cousins.
One great thing about a large family is there is always a birthday or holiday around the corner as a reason to get together and celebrate. Though our family is spread across eight different states, we frequently FaceTime and plan trips together to stay connected. Whether it's catching a game, playing pinochle or simply hanging out, we're always having a great time.
Throughout our lives, we have been blessed with the love and support of our family members. We plan to show that same unconditional love and support to Finn and any additional children we are lucky enough to welcome into our home.
Grandma, Grandpa and Nana are thrilled and eager to embrace a new grandchild and we can't wait to welcome the newest member of our clan!
From Us to You
Hi, and thanks for stopping by. We are thrilled for this opportunity to share a little bit about us and look forward to getting to know a little bit about you. We have been together since the night we met in January 2009 when Tim first gave Wendy a twirl. In 2010, we got engaged on one of Tim's favorite holidays, Super Bowl Sunday and married ten months later in October. Needless to say, Wendy now loves the Super Bowl as well!
After being married for almost six years without any children, we adopted our son Finn and our lives immediately changed. We are easy going parents and our home is full of laughter and love. Finn always has a smile on his face and keeps us on our toes. We love watching him learn and grow.
We are both caring, hard-working people who love to make each other laugh. Some of the things Wendy likes to do are bake, practice yoga, crafts and sing. Tim gets excited when he sees a stick of butter softening on the counter because he knows chocolate chip cookies (his favorite) are in his future. When Tim has free time, he likes to golf (although he spends quite a bit of time in the sand), read or catch his beloved Red Sox on TV. Mostly though, we enjoy spending time together with Finn as a family. Whether we're making a Target run, going to the park, traveling to a place we've never been or even just hanging out at home, we always find a way to make life fun.
There is a ton of room in our home and our hearts for children. Every kid in our life is unique and cool. It's times like when Finn hands us a book to read or giggles going down our slide (again and again) that we grow even more excited to watch our children grow up.
Children in our home will learn that life is much better when you have a positive attitude and anything is possible with hard work and determination. Growing up, Wendy often "helped" her dad in the garage and did projects with her mom around the house. Her parents taught her and her sisters that girls can do anything! Tim spent a lot of his childhood on the soccer field either playing or watching his older brothers. His parents, along with Wendy of course, are still his biggest fans. These are just a few of our happiest childhood memories that we are anxious to pass on to our children.
As parents, we will offer your child the life full of love and support you have dreamed of. We have both worked very hard to earn our degrees and build careers we can be proud of. We do our best to make every day at work and at home a great one and hope to pass on that same zest for life to any children we are lucky enough to parent.
We plan to be open and honest with your child about their adoption story. We will respect your wishes surrounding what you would like your child to know about you and your life. You will forever be in our hearts as the person who helped shape our family. Know that once you choose us as parents, we are here for you throughout your pregnancy and beyond. We want the best life possible for both you and your child. We are committed to staying in touch through letters, photos and emails if that is the route you prefer.
We know you have some tough decisions to make. We promise the decision to choose us as parents for your child will be a decision you won't regret. We wish you happiness and luck in everything you do and hope to hear from you soon.All the best,
Tim & Wendy
