Hello, and welcome to our profile! We are very excited to begin to grow our family through the gift of adoption and look forward to providing a loving and nurturing home. We will also offer first-hand knowledge and support about being an adoptee as Tom was adopted! We think what you are choosing to do is selfless and admirable, and wish you peace and comfort with this difficult decision.
When we first met, neither of us expected more than a friendship. What happened next was a surprise to us both – we became inseparable! After dating for nearly two years, Tom proposed on Heather’s birthday and we were married in a wonderful farm wedding.
It has always been our desire to adopt a child. Prior to getting married, we discussed our future family and shared the same wish to have biological children and also adopt. After unsuccessfully trying to have children on our own, we can’t wait to start our family through adoption.
While we value our time relaxing at home and spending time with our kittens, we also like to keep busy. We enjoy visiting local farmers’ markets then coming home and cooking lavish, healthy meals. We also love to hike, take day trips, check out the latest restaurants, peruse flea markets, visit museums and spend time with family and friends. We both have a tremendous passion for travel and plan a couple big trips and a few smaller ones each year. We look forward to sharing that passion and excitement with a child.
About Tom (in Heather’s words)
Besides being sweet, kind and gentle, Tom is hilarious and keeps me laughing. When we first started dating, I thought he was too good to be true but now I realize I am one lucky girl! He will be a strong, supportive and loving father who will keep our children entertained.
Tom is an amazing photographer and is lucky to make a living pursuing his passion. He donates his photography skills to Big Brothers/Big Sisters, an organization near and dear to his heart as he was a “Little” when he was young. Because of his interest in photography, he also likes to shoot in his spare time and can’t wait to take pictures of our little one. He also looks forward to sharing his love of football, baseball and fishing.
About Heather (in Tom’s words)
Heather is an amazing woman! She is incredibly caring and thoughtful, and will be the best mother. Her love knows no bounds and I knew right away that she was not only the one for me but that I wanted to raise a family with her.
Heather works in marketing communications and has a passion for health and wellness. She serves as our household’s head chef and volunteers with an area food bank. She is also an avid reader and still has her childhood book collection, which she can’t wait to share with our children. Heather has always dreamed of having a family and plans to work part-time once we have a family.
Our Friends and Family
Tom was adopted at two weeks of age and has a small, close-knit family. It has been an experience for him to get to know Heather’s large family with many aunts, uncles and cousins! We both have close relationships with our parents, siblings and our extended families. We enjoy spending time and traveling with them. Holidays are very important to all of us and we always spend those special days together.
Our families and friends are thrilled we want to adopt and are anxiously awaiting an addition to our family.
