A Letter from Carter & Tiffany
Hello from the beautiful state of Virginia! We are a fun-loving family of 3, plus our sweet lab, Beau. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us. We are so excited to share our silliness, our faith, the joy of family traditions, and lots of love with a child. We are praying for your comfort and look forward to speaking with you!
We met over 10 years ago at work–Carter is a Chef and Tiffany worked in Administration. Carter is very funny and couldn’t stop making Tiffany smile. We spoke about adoption when we were dating, and it has been on our hearts ever since. We keep God at the center of our relationship and love to spend time together. 5 years ago, we were blessed with the birth of our son, Levi. We look forward to becoming a family of 4 through adoption and sharing time together, exploring, vacations, movie/game nights, visiting family, lots of hugs, bedtime stories and so much more! As a family, we enjoy:
- Road trips to explore the Blue Ridge-especially the trails in the Wetlands to discover birds, lizards, deer, fish and other wildlife.
- Bible Study, prayer, church time.
- Taking our weekly trip to the downtown farmers market is one our favorite things to do.
- Family trips to amusement parks, the children’s museum, parks, the beach, fishing & camping-sometimes camping in the backyard is fun too!
- Board games, blocks/Legos, science experiments.
- Having friends/family over for meals and great conversation.
- Riding bikes and playing soccer in the backyard.
Tiffany is very kind, dependable, hard-working, loyal, and funny. She is an amazing mom with a lot of energy. You can always count on her big smile to brighten things up. She enjoys baking, gardening, crafts, and volunteering at Levi’s school. She is very organized and is great about remembering all of the small details when it comes to family traditions or how to make people feel special. She never forgets to send out birthday cards to all of our friends and family. She has a strong relationship with Jesus and cherishes growing closer to Him. She is excited to welcome our next child into the family and teach him or her many new recipes, read Goodnight Moon to him or her, and play games like hide and seek!
Carter is devoted, hard-working, humble, patient, and super funny! He is a Chef, a great leader, and very talented. He loves to watch football, take care of our fruit trees and vegetable garden, spend time with family, cook wonderful meals, and spend time outside relaxing by the fire. He is a wonderful dad and role model to our son and loves being active in his life. He leaves notes for us in the morning, encouraging us to have a good day and telling us how much he loves us. His relationship with God is very important to him. He looks forward to loving our next child unconditionally, playing outside with him or her on our swing set, taking them on “Days with Dad” to the museum or to the park, and building forts in the living room with them!
Our son, Levi, is 5 years old. He is a very sweet, curious, smart, funny, and athletic little boy who loves superheroes and dinosaurs! He is in kindergarten and is on the soccer team. He loves Church, going on walks to hunt for rocks, sticks, and leaves, and is always up for a good puddle to splash in! We know he will be a wonderful big brother and that he’s excited to share his dinosaur knowledge with a sibling!
We are very close with our family. We have a total of 7 nieces, ages newborn to 12. Our parents, siblings, and nieces are all so excited about our adoption journey. They’re all thrilled to help us welcome our next child into the family with open arms. They all have so much love to share!
We live in a safe and friendly small-town suburban neighborhood with great schools. We have a huge park with a pool, kids ride-on train, and a duck pond less than .5 mile from our home and beautiful scenery. We live in a 3-story cape cod brick home with 4 bedrooms. Our finished basement is used as a playroom and 2nd living space. One of the bedrooms has already been prepared as the nursery for our next child with a crib and furniture. We like having our home clean, inviting, kid-friendly and cozy. We love taking walks in our neighborhood with our friendly dog, Beau (who we adopted 8 years ago), and playing in our fenced-in backyard where we have a swing set. We also enjoy tending to our small vegetable garden and our new apple/peach trees in the backyard.
We promise to give your child a supportive, stable, loving, safe, fun home and a good education. We are committed to raising him or her with Christian morals and values, good manners, and teaching and modeling kindness, love, respect, gratitude, compassion, and honesty. We promise to always tell him or her about you and to always display our love and appreciation for you. We are open to letters, photos, and occasional visits at your comfort level. Thank you so much for getting to know us and for considering us as a family for your child. We would love to hear from you!
