From Us to You

Hello! Our names are Dustin and Tiffany, and we are so thankful you are taking the time to look through our profile and consider us as adoptive parents. We think you are so brave and are praying for you and your baby daily! We can’t imagine the difficult decisions you’ve had to make, and the ones you are considering selflessly for your baby’s future. Although we haven’t met yet, we hope that looking through our profile gives you an idea of what our family and life are like.

We are high school sweethearts and have now been married for over 10 years. Both of us work full-time in stable careers, and our schedules allow us to have time off together and one-on-one time with our 4-year-old daughter, Sydney. She isn’t in school yet but loves learning new things, practicing her letters, helping around the house, and playing with our dog. Myles is our 10-year-old golden retriever; he is a 70-pound baby and so gentle. He loves to shake hands and will take all the petting one has to offer!

It has always been a hope of ours to have a large family because we both grew up with multiple siblings in blended families, and our daughter is more than ready to be a big sister. We each have big extended families, with lots of babies, so Sydney has already gotten some practice helping out and is excited for a baby brother or sister. It hasn’t been easy growing our family, but each struggle has made us better parents and helped us grow in our faith. We are Christians and one of our favorite Bible verses that has helped us trust in the Lord’s timing is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” We have prayed for guidance over the last few years and feel called to stop fertility treatments and pursue adoption.

Adoption has been on our minds for the last several years. One of our nieces was adopted as a baby, which has given us an up-close experience of adoption in our family. Our 6-year-old niece, Lia, is a transracial adoptee, and she is Sydney’s “best cousin ever” and the two are pretty inseparable. We see Lia multiple times a week and your baby would too since our parents babysit for us when we work. We have already seen how much of a blessing adoption can be.

If you choose us, your child will grow up knowing about you and your love for them. We are open to keeping you updated in the way you are most comfortable with. We would raise your baby as our own and provide them with a safe environment, where it is encouraged to talk things out, work hard, and dream big. We want to help guide them to a future where they can be themselves and live a happy, healthy, and fun life.  Your baby will be part of a loving family that accepts diversity and knows how to love big whether or not we all have the same DNA. Our whole family is as excited as we are to add another member to the family!

We pray that you find peace in your decisions, and we hope to meet you soon!

Love,
Dustin, Tiffany, and Sydney

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

Growing up, having other siblings in the house was so fun, and they are our forever best friends. Because of this, we want our daughter to be able to experience a big family as well. We have several cousins in our extended family, so there are always kids or babies around for her to play with, but not in our home. Our plan has always been to have children who could grow up together.

We realized it wasn’t going to be easy for us to have babies about two years into our marriage. We started seeing specialists, and Tiffany went through several fertility treatments and surgery before we were able to have our daughter. It took us four years to miraculously have her. When Sydney was about a year old, we decided to try again. Since then, we have gone through several more fertility treatments and Tiffany once again had surgery last year, but with no success this time.

In the last year, we have struggled with what direction God was guiding us to go. We knew that adoption was always an option for us because one of our precious nieces came to our family through adoption about six years ago. After everything 2020 brought, we felt called towards starting our adoption journey. We know, without a doubt, that we can love a baby that is not biologically ours in the same way we love Sydney. Our daughter is more than ready to be a big sister and prays for a baby brother or sister each night!

About Tiffany, by Dustin

Tiffany is my best friend and one of the greatest blessings in my life. Her love for us and her hard-working nature inspire me to be better in everything I do. I like to tell Sydney that I hope she grows up to be just like her mom; I tell her she’s smart, strong, and beautiful just like Tiffany. It’s typical to see Tiffany down on the floor playing games or dolls with Sydney, or together in the kitchen making homemade pizzas. When we go to the park, Tiffany plays and goes down the slides with Sydney. They are also great entertainers and like to sing and dance in the living room.

Setting goals is a big deal in our home, and Tiffany is the one who likes to organize and write everything down.  We like to have fun as a family and for us, that starts with setting goals together. Goal and budget meetings lead to trips and adventures.

One of the first things I noticed about my wife when we met was her love for babies and kids. She has always been excited to hold the new baby in the family. Our nieces and nephews admire and look up to Tiffany; they call her Aunt T. She is a loving mom and a great role model. I’m thankful to call her my wife.

About Dustin, by Tiffany

Dustin and I have been together since high school, which is now half my life! We have grown up together. He is such a good man. He is a thoughtful, loving husband, and the best daddy. He always keeps us laughing, and he has even been teaching our daughter how to pull little pranks on me! In our relationship, I’m more serious and emotional, but he always keeps me level-headed, makes me laugh, and brightens my spirits when things feel heavy. I have also loved watching him grow in his faith and lead our family to love God.

As a dad, Dustin has really made me love him even more. He has always been hands-on with his parenting, from changing dirty diapers to playing dress-up. He takes just as much responsibility in raising our daughter as I do. It is really important to him to create a calm and safe environment for our daughter. He is the first to calm the crying and encourage her to talk things out.

Dustin works so hard for us. Working swing shift is not easy, but he is always early to work and eager to learn new things. It worries him when others are struggling, and he is always looking for ways to help.

He is also a sports fanatic. Basketball and tennis have always been his favorites to play and watch-especially the Kentucky Wildcats and the Lakers. Baseball is best watched in person, according to him, and now he is enjoying soccer and teaching Sydney how to play! Dustin is good with kids. I see it often with our nephews, nieces, and little cousins as well. He is passionate about teaching them to play sports, so I see him becoming one of the coaches for our kids’ teams one day!

Our Lifestyle

We have a pretty simple life and we always try to make it fun and filled with love! We love going to the park and taking our dog for a walk while our daughter, Sydney, rides her bike. There are several walking trails and nature trails that we like to visit regularly. Working out and making healthy choices have become even more important to us as we have become parents. We want our kids to have a positive relationship with their health. We now work out regularly in our home and show Sydney how becoming strong is fun!

We both work full-time jobs. Tiffany is an accountant at a local pharmacy and Dustin works at an aluminum plant nearby. Tiffany works days and Dustin works the swing shift which means we get one on one time with Sydney pretty regularly. When we both are at work, she spends time with her grandparents and our close family members.

Traveling is something we are trying to pursue more and more. We especially love going to the beach. Each year, we try to take at least one big vacation away from our area.

Home & Neighborhood

In our home, we have lots of laughs, dance parties, and off-key karaoke with our daughter, Sydney! We always strive to make our day-to-day fun. We believe that laughter is the best medicine and that making memories is more important than having a lot of stuff. Our home consists of the two of us, our 4-year-old daughter, Sydney, and our 10-year-old golden retriever, Myles.

We live in a small town, in a small neighborhood off the main road. We know our neighbors and look out for each other. Most of our neighbors are older, and we have always felt safe here. We are just a few minutes from great elementary, middle, and high schools. There are parks nearby that we love to visit on sunny days, and our town is still growing with several cute little boutiques and coffee shops. We are about an hour away from the larger cities that have all the movie theaters, shopping malls, and water parks. So there is always something to do!

We have lived in our home for over 10 years and moved in right before our wedding. When we bought our house, we thought of it as a perfect “starter” house. All these years later, we have made it our home! We’ve extended rooms, added a bathroom and a garage, and there seems to always be a project going to make it even more unique to fit our lives. We enjoy playing out in our yard under our big shade tree. Outside, you will find some colorful flowers, a wreath on the door, rocking chairs, and swings. In the summer, there’s always a bucket of bubbles and sidewalk chalk on our porch, usually with hopscotch and obstacle courses drawn throughout the sidewalk and driveway!

Our Families & Friends

Family is so important to us! The older we have gotten, the more we’ve realized how close our family is and how rare that is to find. We have an unusually large, blended family, as we both grew up with divorced parents. Luckily for us, our parents have all remained in our lives, and we were able to add in some bonus parents and siblings from it! Dustin has three (step) sisters and a (half) brother, plus two brothers-in-law; whereas Tiffany has three sisters (one full and two half), and a brother-in-law. To us though, they are all just our sisters and brothers! Together, we have two nephews and two nieces. We each still have one grandmother with us and some (step) grandparents as well.

We are so blessed to have most of our family in the same town with us or at least no more than 30 minutes away. Because of this, we have never had to put our daughter in daycare. We rotate having different parents or grandparents watch her each week, and they love it! Some of our best memories growing up happened with our grandparents, and we are so glad to give our daughter and your baby those experiences as well.

Our extended families are even bigger. We have so many cousins that are just as close as siblings to us and we make it a point to get together regularly.

Traditions

In our family, holidays are a big tradition for get-togethers! Birthdays, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s are all celebrations in our family. We love having special themed birthday parties for Sydney each year; our favorite thing to do is gather all the kids for a picture and each year we can see how they grow and change.

Easter is a special holiday because we get to celebrate with our church family as well as extended family. The main focus, of course, is on Christ’s sacrifice for us all, and then we enjoy some egg hunts as well! The 4th of July usually includes outdoor cookouts and pool parties, ending in fireworks. Halloween is another fun holiday for us; we love coordinating Halloween costumes and making it fun for Trick or Treating! Thanksgiving is a day full of meals with family; we love gathering around big extended tables and having the traditional turkey and dressing meals. We usually see each side of our families.

Finally, Christmas is our favorite! We have a tradition in our house to decorate the Christmas tree while listening to Christmas music. Then we pick our favorite Christmas movie to watch afterward. We enjoy making cookies and candies together and seeing all our families. It is a busy time of year, but so fun!

Cultural Diversity

In our home, your child will hear “I love you” daily. They will be shown so much love and be encouraged to be themselves and learn and grow. We will all explore their culture(s) and immerse them as much as possible so that they know where they came from.  We promise to always provide a safe home and a safe space for them to talk to us about anything. We will teach them to love the skin and body that God created for them.  Just as we teach our daughter and niece, every skin color, eye color, and hair color is beautiful! However God created you, makes you so unique and special.

Our Promise to You

As parents, our promise is to always be open about adoption with your child and to love them unconditionally. We will tell them how brave you are and how much you love them to have been able to make the choice of adoption. They will know how much we prayed for them and how wanted they are. As they grow, we will give them details about their story that are age-appropriate.

Our relationship with you is important to us. We are open to communication and sending you updates as your child grows. We are happy to text or email pictures, videos, and celebrations. You will always be their tummy mommy and first mother, and we will honor you for giving us the most precious gift imaginable!
