Tim & Dawn
Adoption is a true gift that we treasure dearly as it has given us our youngest son and an extended family that we love and cherish with all our hearts! We cannot wait to grow our family and we are honored that you would like to learn more about us. Thank you for considering us, we have had such an amazing journey and we hope to be able to continue it with you.
Adoption in Our Lives
Adoption has been such a big part of our lives and is the reason for so many special people in our continuously growing family. When Tim's mom was young, she had a daughter whom she placed for adoption. Around the age of 15, Tim met his older sister for the very first time. They have stayed connected ever since. We have shared taking trips to visit one another and it is always such a joyous time getting together and seeing the cousins bond and play.
We have always wanted a big family and were blessed with two children, Trenton and Charlotte. Then, in 2018, through the process of adoption, a Birth Mom placed her baby with us and our family grew not only with a newborn son but with his Birth Mom as well. Vincent was two days old when we met and we immediately fell in love with him and his Birth Mom. We are so fortunate to have an open relationship with her and be able to talk and video chat. Adoption has given us a family we've always dreamed of having, one so big and so full of love that we cannot wait to grow again.
Our Leisure Time
Our weeks and weekends are typically full of fun activities! Throughout the week we usually have a dance or gymnastic lesson and sports practices and on most Saturday mornings you can find us on a soccer or baseball field. Tim loves coaching or volunteering as a referee and Dawn loves assisting or being a team mom helper while the kids participate in their favorite team sports. Trenton and Charlotte have been playing soccer since they were two years old and they love to teach Vincent to play with his little soccer set at home, he even throws his hands up in the air when he scores! If we aren't at the field, we are probably swimming at one of the gorgeous beaches around the island or hiking one of the many trails with scenic views. The kids love to be in the water practicing how to boogie board and building sandcastles together on the beach or trying to find the hidden waterfall or one of the old wartime forts along a well-known trail. On rainy days we love to pull out all our board games, we have a closet full, and watch our favorite movies with Old Bay flavored popcorn!
Fun Facts About Us
Our House and Neighborhood
Our family lives in military base housing on the beautiful island of Oahu here in Hawaii!
Our two-level home is very spacious with four bedrooms and a big two-car garage full of bikes, outdoor toys, sports equipment, and everything fun for the beach! Our first floor is a large open concept area that includes a big den that we have turned into the children's very own playroom! We even have a "Harry Potter" closet that houses all our learning and educational crafts and activities. The backyard is fenced-in and complete with a slide and swingset and water table where the kids and their friends love to hang out and play.
Our community has a park on almost every corner, including right outside our front door, and we have a community pool within walking distance! Shops and grocery stores are right down the street and there are many beaches close by where the water is so clear and shallow and perfect for all ages, especially for babies to crawl around and splash in.
We live in a wonderfully diverse neighborhood full of families with children of all ages. Our community is very family-friendly, fun, and a safe place for our children to grow up in, you can always find neighbors and children enjoying the warm weather outside all year round!
Our Extended Families
Being a military family, we don't always get to live close by our extended family, but we continue to stay close and connected through video chatting. Our children love to get to see and talk to their cousins, aunt, uncles, and grandparents on the phone. We would love to be able to do this with you and your child too if you were interested! When we do get to live close by, our families make every effort to see each other as often as we can. Our favorite get togethers are our children's birthday parties! Dawn loves to throw a different theme for the children every year while Tim loves to cook all the food on the grill.
During the holidays when we are away from family, it's a tradition for our military family to hold holiday dinners at one of our homes. Everyone pitches in to help with setup and food. It's the best part about being in the military, you make friends who become your family and who love your children as their own everywhere you go. All our family and friends are thrilled for us to welcome another child into our home and hearts. We are so blessed, as will this child be, to be supported and surrounded by lots of cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends who would do anything and everything for us.
From Us to You
All our aloha and mahalo (love and thank you) for wanting to take the time to get to know us a little bit better. We cannot begin to imagine how difficult this decision is that you are facing, but we admire your courage and strength and love for wanting this child to have the best future possible.
We have been married since March 2011. Our lives have been intertwined since we were little, attending the same schools, living in the same neighborhoods, even playing in the same elementary school band without knowing it. We finally met face to face in high school and dated briefly before losing touch for 7 years. After reconnecting through Facebook, we met back up and we both knew that this was it, we were meant to be together and we weren't going to lose touch again. We got married two and a half months later and continue to grow and love each other more and more every day.
We have both always known we wanted a big family. Adopting has been something Dawn has always felt in her heart she would do whether she had biological children or not. Tim has a half-sister who was placed for adoption as a newborn and after seeing how wonderful adoption is, decided he too would like to be a part of that someday. After having two biological children, we were led to adoption to grow our family and we were blessed with our youngest son and an open adoption relationship with his Birth Mom. It has been an amazing journey and one that we are so thankful and grateful for. We feel in our hearts we are meant to adopt again to complete our family and are so excited for another opportunity to share our hearts and home and all our love with a baby and their Birth Family.
Being in the military we get to have a very familial environment everywhere we live. Our friends are our family no matter where we are. We spend birthdays and holidays together and our children get to be surrounded by people who love them like their own. Tim's job has been such a wonderful experience for us. We have been able to travel and experience many different countries and cultures first hand. We are so lucky to be able to be stationed in cites and countries we wouldn't otherwise have an opportunity to live in. Our children have learned to speak multiple languages and we have made life long friends from all over the world.
We can promise you that your child will be surrounded by an unbelievable amount of love and support. We will be able to give this child opportunities to travel the world and to learn and grow through such incredibly amazing experiences and adventures. Yet, no matter what, we will still always get to be connected to you through pictures, letters, emails, phone calls, and even video chats if you desired. Our children love getting to see and talk to our family that way.
This child will always know who you are and know about the incredibly tough, admirable, and selfless decision you made if you chose us. We will always be open and honest with them. We will instill morals such as honesty, integrity, and respect and they will be given the best education possible. We will love this child unconditionally, forever. We can promise that you will always be a significant part of our family and this child's life.
Thank you again for considering our family, we hope to one day be your family as well.
Love and respect,
Tim & Dawn
