Our Leisure Time

Enjoying a Beautiful, Sunny Day Together

They say variety is the spice of life. We couldn't agree more! Dani loves to go to Zumba and lift weights at the YMCA. She enjoys playing sudoku puzzles. We regularly go for long walks. It gives us time to talk, renew our minds and make plans for the future. We both love to take road trips, especially to local festivals. Dani loves to create – whether it be for work or pleasure. There is such freedom of expression and passion in music and art. She loves making costumes, painting, singing and sculpting. We are looking forward to cultivating and encouraging a child's self-expression though the arts. In addition to the arts, we are both huge soccer fans and love to attend soccer games. Tim loves to read sci-fi books, listen to science podcasts, go to the gym and play computer games. Going to the gym allows him to both workout and listen to his podcast subscriptions. He plays a wide variety of computer games, but he usually prefers strategy games. We also have a group of friends who get together regularly to play computer games, board games, or just hangout. We have a close-knit extended family and travel quite often be a part of all of the special moments in their lives.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Dinner Date Night

Dani About Tim: I love Tim's warmth and kindness. He is a fantastic listener and remembers what you tell him. He brings a peacefulness to any group gathering because he's genuinely kind and thoughtful. I respect his far-ranging intelligence and thirst for knowledge! He is an avid reader and is well-informed, which makes him an interesting person to talk to. He's the kind of guy who will patiently have answers to a child's many questions. Tim is cheerful, laughs a lot, and keeps me laughing. I love that he is self-motivated and optimistic. He's my best friend.

Tim About Dani: I love Dani’s passion for music and art. She is highly artistic and enjoys creating. We have many of her paintings and glass pieces displayed in our home. She is an avid performer, and she shines in performance settings. I enjoy watching Dani sing at concerts; it’s a skill I wish I had! Dani loves to read. We often read the same books and imagine what it would be like to live in those worlds. I love that Dani encourages others to believe in themselves. Dani is loving, caring, kind and generous and will make an excellent mom. We are the perfect complement to each other! Dani is not only my wife but my best friend.

Our Adventures

Breathtaking Views in Alaska

We don't have a favorite vacation spot. Our favorite idea of vacation is finding the next great adventure! We love to travel and experience new places. We have loved hiking in Alaska just as much as we have loved touring Paris, Luxembourg and Brussels. We like to take road trip vacations in the US, so that we can visit all 50 states. Our favorite road trip so far has been driving up the west coast from Los Angeles to Seattle. We got to see the Redwoods! We both love being near the ocean and plan to visit Hawaii next year with Dani's entire extended family. We visit England regularly to spend time with Tim's parents and brother. We love to be active wherever we go – hiking, water sports, shopping, guided tours – we're up for experiencing new cultures and attractions. We both love seeing musicals and live music and try to attend a musical event in every city we visit. We look forward to sharing our love of adventure with a child.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We currently live in beautiful Kansas. We moved here about five years ago from Ohio. We love the weather and the friendly people we have met. Our house is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in a small development on the outskirts of the city. Our neighbors are mostly younger families with kids of all ages and a few older folks of retirement age. Our house is a ranch-style with living room and family room. We love decorating our home for the holidays and for fun get-togethers with friends!

Our Backyard - Lots of Space to Play!

Our neighbors have become friends. We look out for each other and help out with yard maintenance during vacations. We have several neighborhood traditions including an annual BBQ at our clubhouse/swimming pool where we swim, play games and have fun activities for kids of all ages. The second most popular neighborhood event is the July 4th fireworks party. We all come together to create fireworks displays that light up the night sky!

Our neighborhood is located minutes away from a large city that has every amenity that you could imagine including a children's science exploration center, an excellent zoo and an arboretum. The entire local area from neighborhood to city is family-oriented and is a wonderful place to live! Our home is located in one of the best school systems in Kansas with a high degree of sporting and academic achievement.

Our Extended Families

Thanksgiving With Family

Dani grew up in rural Ohio, a true Midwesterner. She lived in the country with her parents, two sisters and one brother, going to the same school K-12. Dani's family spent most days outside working in the garden or playing in the woods. We still love to get together for regular campfires under the stars. Dani's entire close-knit family still lives in Ohio. We make regular trips home throughout the year. We share many fun traditions, including competitive board game tournaments, Black Friday shopping events and delicious Christmas breakfasts. We have an extended family reunion with a volleyball tournament every two years, hosted by Dani's parents. Dani's family is delighted to add another member to our family and has provided a continuous stream of encouragement and joy to our adoption process.

Our Nieces & Nephews

Tim's entire family lives in the UK. He maintains a close relationship with all his family through social media and video chat apps. We also visit at least once per year and Tim's mom, dad and brother visit every two years. While growing up in the UK, Tim's family would visit extended family at least once per month – family is a very important part of the cultural identity of Brits. Visits often entail talking in each other's homes while drinking vast quantities of tea (no joke). This child would be the first grandchild for Tim's parents! We cannot wait to share the unique family and cultural traditions of England with a little one!

From Us to You

Hi, we are Tim and Danielle (Dani). Thank you for reading our letter and wanting to learn more about us. We cannot imagine the courage it takes for you to make this monumental decision to consider adoption for your child. We are happy to share a bit about ourselves in the hopes that you will be comfortable in your decision to choose us.

We have been married for 18 years. It's been a long-time hope of ours to raise a family together. We are a strong family unit. We love adventure, traveling and exploring new cultures. We married shortly after graduating college and have tried unsuccessfully to have children. Through this heartbreaking time, we realized that God's plan for us is adoption. Our journey has been a rollercoaster of emotions but starting the process of adoption has filled us with optimism for our next chapter. Adoption is a choice that we gladly make. Words cannot describe our excitement as we look forward to expanding our family through adoption.

Dani is a music teacher and has taught all grades K-12. She loves the passion and the curiosity that children bring to their learning. Teaching music/theatre is her dream job; a chance to bring stories to life for performers and audiences! Dani also spends time performing in professional groups in our community. Dani wants to use all of her creative energy to be a stay at home mom. In her free time, Dani loves to read, paint and do Zumba. She is an avid follower of English Premiere League Soccer. Tim is a geologist and currently works for a software company. He grew-up in a small village in England. We can't wait for your child to experience England and all that it has to offer! Tim knew that he wanted to be a scientist from an early age and travel the world - geology fit the bill. Tim enjoys working out at the gym, reading, and playing computer games with his friends.

If you choose us, your child will become a member of a loving and stable home with a large and close-knit extended family. Our family celebrates birthdays and holidays, gathering together with laughter, great food, and love. We are looking forward to sharing these experiences and traditions with your baby. Our families are very excited and supportive of our decision to adopt! There are many aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, and especially cousins, eager to meet and love your baby. You should know ... no child in the world will be as loved, cherished, cuddled and adored as much as your baby.

We promise to always give our unconditional love and protection, provide a safe and secure environment and teach morals and ethics to build strong character. We will provide your child with an excellent, rich education. Your child will have the ability to explore the world, dream big and pursue their interests with enthusiasm. We will help your child to face life with positivity when overcoming obstacles and never give up. We will raise your child to be a kind, compassionate and loving person who will be a light to others. We want to nurture their creativity and independence.

We will be open and honest about your child's adoption. You will have a place of honor in our family as the person who made it possible for us to raise a family. We make this commitment to you - to tell them about you, the strength of character that you possess, how difficult your decision to choose adoption was, and that you love them dearly. We are happy to email you letters and photos with stories about your child's life and accomplishments.

It's our desire to take on the awesome privilege of raising a child. We look forward to the surprises of parenthood and having a child teach us something about ourselves. We have many adventures planned - many new memories to make! We realize what an important decision you're making, and we want you to know how much we appreciate and respect you. We are thankful for you and the journey that you are taking with us. We hope our letter brings you peace and resolution in your decision making.
