A Letter from Tim & Amanda

Hi! We’ve been happily married 12 years and love finding the fun in anything we do. We’ve enjoyed traveling the world and much of the U.S., but our hearts are always the most at home with our dogs. It’s exciting to step into this next chapter together, growing our family through adoption and becoming first-time parents!

We look forward to sharing our lives with a child, enjoying weekends with our families, summers on the lake, and exploring the mountains in the winter. After we adopt Amanda will be a full-time stay-at-home parent. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents! We hope to get to know you and the life you picture for your child.

About Us

We met through a mutual friend and became instant best friends. A few months later we started dating and we’ve been inseparable ever since! (Our friends say if we were a celebrity couple we’d be known as “Timanda.”) We’ve always imagined a child in our future. Having a child biologically has not been in God’s plan for us and we both agree that we’ve felt God leading us toward adopting a child.

We are big homebodies who enjoy anything we do together, such as:
• DIY home improvement projects (Amanda is the designer & Tim is the builder!)
• Yardwork (even pulling weeds and mowing the grass is fun for us!)
• Running errands (Costco & Home Depot are our weekend shopping!)
• Attending weekly events hosted by our close-knit church

This is Amanda

I am a College Registrar & future stay-at-home mom.

According to Tim: Amanda is honest, loyal, dedicated, and driven. She’s my biggest cheerleader and will be the best future mother! Amanda creates a sense of comfort and stability in our home. I can’t wait to raise a family with her!

Amanda likes:
• Exercising
• Finding new projects to start
• Watching old chick-flicks
• Tending her houseplants

This is Tim

I love being a UPS Delivery Driver!

According to Amanda: Tim is kind, loving, forgives easily, and loves quickly. Everyone he meets seems to adore him! He provides everything we need without any hesitation. As a dad, Tim will be loving, patient, and caring. He’ll be the dad who wants to teach our child everything he knows, mixing in plenty of fun and imagination.

Tim likes:
• Working in the yard
• Building things for the house
• Playing instruments (he can play trombone, drums, & guitar)
• Video games

Our Home in Nevada

We live in a two-story, 3-bedroom home on a cul-de-sac, in northern Nevada between giant mountains. Summer brings warm weather and trips to the lake; winter gives us snow, sledding, and snowman-building. We enjoy walking the paths to a park just a few minutes from our home. It’s a quiet family neighborhood and a great place to raise children.

Our Family

We come from big families and we spend a lot of time together. We each have three siblings and between us we have 5 nephews and 7 nieces. Our families and best friends live in our home town in northern California, within an hour of us. Amanda’s parents live in the same house she grew up in, on a small farm with cows, chickens, ducks, and honeybees. They love to host all the family events! We all make the effort to visit each other and stay in touch.

Our Promise

We will raise your child to know how much they are loved! We will provide a safe, stable, loving, supportive place for your child to grow and learn. Our whole family is excited to welcome this child and give him or her the very best. As parents, we believe in helping our child reach their fullest potential and giving every opportunity to discover and grow his or her talents and interests.

We promise to:
• Model Christian values, loving God and others.
• Encourage education and support their future goals.
• Honor the relationship you want with us through this adoption, sharing updates and connection, if you’re comfortable.
• Help them understand our family’s adoption story from the start, and to know how much you mean to us.

We believe open adoption is a beautiful way to build a family and we are grateful for this chance to share a little about ourselves with you. We’d love to talk with you! Call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

Thoughtfully, Tim & Amanda

More About Our Family
What we love about where we live

• Beautiful mountain views from every window in our home, and we can see the desert skyline over the houses
• Halloween with hundreds of kids trick-or-treating our streets
• Spacious & grassy backyard, and a front patio where we like to sit to greet neighbors as they pass by
• Every year the small local airport puts on air races, and during the summer we watch the small airplanes practice their stunts, right from our front yard

Our Dogs

We have 3 dogs, each with their own unique personalities, who are a sweet part of our family. Meshach is our Beagle, Moses is our Shih Tzu, and Lady is our Husky-Healer mix.

Favorite things about our family

• Get-togethers are loud, fun, and filled with stories and laughter.
• In the summer, Amanda’s parents set up a 20-foot water slide for the kids when they visit the farm.
• During winters, the grandparents take the kids sledding or for long walks in the snow.
• The grandkids enjoy tractor rides with Dah (grandpa) and homemade playdough and coloring, with Mimi (grandma).
• Everyone looks forward to Sunday family dinners and game night.

Fun Facts

Tim: I once made a latte for Elon Musk. (When I retire, I want to be a barista!)

Amanda: I have 33 houseplants and I LOVE blasting the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack while I clean!
