It is difficult to put into words how thankful we are for you. You chose life, and what a beautiful gift that is. We admire your courage and selflessness and we pray for you as you make this difficult decision. We cannot imagine the emotions you must be experiencing, and hope that you feel God's presence and love throughout the remainder of your pregnancy. We pray that you find peace in selecting a family to love and provide opportunity for your child.

It is difficult to put into words how thankful we are for you. You chose life, and what a beautiful gift that is. We admire your courage and selflessness and we pray for you as you make this difficult decision. We cannot imagine the emotions you must be experiencing, and hope that you feel God's presence and love throughout the remainder of your pregnancy. We pray that you find peace in selecting a family to love and provide opportunity for your child.

As we grow our family through adoption, we want you to know just how much we cherish this gift, and what a blessing it has been for us. Your sacrifice is a direct reflection of the love you have for your child, a love that words could never describe. The challenges that we have faced trying to expand our family have been difficult and emotional, but we now realize that adoption has been God's plan all along.

As you consider this difficult decision, we hope to offer you some peace in the form of a promise. If your child is placed with us, we promise to love him/her unconditionally while providing consistent stability and guidance. He/she will never doubt the love you have for him/her which is shown in your selfless decision. He/she will grow up knowing how special, chosen and longed for he/she is. We are thinking of you and cannot express enough gratitude for your consideration.

About Us

We are Teddy and Tiffany. A mutual friend introduced us in the summer of 2012. Tiffany was living on the in Florida at the time while Teddy was living in North Carolina. After 3 years of traveling back and forth, we finally decided to tie the knot. We were married in Florida on a beautiful summer day in June of 2015. We then settled down in North Carolina to start our life together. When planning our future, we both discussed the desire to adopt after seeing how rewarding it had been to some of our family and friends. After going through infertility struggles, our desire to adopt only grew stronger. Infertility has brought challenges to our relationship, but with the love and support we share for each other we have definitely become a better and stronger couple. God and our family is what matters most to us and we are so grateful that God has put adoption as a calling in our hearts.

Our Neighborhood

We live in a 3-bedroom/2-bathroom home, located in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood. Our home is a short distance away from hiking trails, parks, museums, zoos, and sporting venues. We are lucky to live in a state that is surrounded by universities that are considered to be some of the top schools.

Our Careers

Teddy manages his family owned seafood restaurant. He loves seeing his regular customers and making them feel right at home! Tiffany is a Registered Nurse in Labor and Delivery. She loves working with her patients and witnessing little miracles enter the world every day! We are both very fortunate to have great flexibility with our work schedules, as family time is very important to us.

Our Faith

First and foremost, we are a Christian family. Our faith is the center of our home, our marriage, and our family. We are thankful to be a part of an incredible, loving Christian Church and community. We strive daily to live respectable lives with constant spiritual growth based on our morals and values.

It's hard to put all that Teddy is into words. I barely remember life before him and I can't imagine life without him. When we met, he was the answer to many prayers and a stabilizing force in my life, he makes me a better person. Teddy is a godly man and one of the most thoughtful people I know. If I had to describe Teddy in one word it would be loving. He is a very honest and giving person. He comes from a large extended family that is very close. His loyalty to his family and friends makes me respect him even more. He is a hard worker and always makes sure his family is provided for. One of the things that draws people to Teddy is how friendly he is. He is the type of person that loves getting to know someone and hearing their unique stories. He "tries" to be a handy man around the house but isn't always successful. There's no denying that he always keeps everyone around him laughing! Teddy's kind heart will make him a wonderful father like the great husband he's already proven to be.

Tiffany is my teammate in life; she is my best friend, and biggest supporter. She is the one God designed just for me. She is the most selfless and generous person I know. If I had to describe Tiffany in one word it would be caring. From our first interaction together when we spent hours talking about everything under the sun, I knew she was the one for me. She has a deep, genuine love for children; they are drawn to her. Tiffany has a great sense of humor. Her smile is infectious and she makes me laugh daily at her silly jokes. She is fiercely independent and is very successful in her career. She is great at starting new traditions and cherishing old ones. Tiffany is going to be a wonderful mother and I can't wait to see her in that role!
