Keith & TyesiaBack to search
We are a fun-loving Christian couple from Northern Virginia and are excited to grow our family through adoption. We have established our home, finances, and family support to ensure a safe, stable, and loving environment for your child to grow in.
We look forward to sharing our love for traveling, cooking, and exercising outdoors with your child. We are honored to be considered by you and look forward to keeping in contact with updates, pictures, and letters.
Our story began over 14 years ago at our ministry’s academic tutoring center. We met there, became friends, and were married 2years later. As a couple, we enjoy traveling, cooking, exercising together, and spending time with family. Early in our marriage, we discussed the possibility of adoption after a sequence of pregnancy complications and failed infertility treatments. We are excited about the opportunity to expand our family through adoption and share the experience of parenting together. For the past 12 years, we have successfully co-parented our 17-year-old daughter, Skylar, with her biological mother. Our daughter is with us every summer as well as on holidays. We enjoy traveling with her, collective book reading, and outdoor activities.
We look forward to teaching our baby Christian values, learning diverse cultures, and watching their growth over the years.
Keith has a servant’s heart that is expressed in every area of his life. He serves his family, his community, and his country as a reservist for the Air National Guard. Since the beginning of our marriage, I have watched him be a role model and an amazing father to his daughter, Skylar. He is a dedicated husband, father, and leader who is selfless and patient. I admire his compassion, faith, and zest for life. He can make friends with anyone while making them feel valued and heard. These qualities and more will make Keith an incredibly loving father.
Keith’s personal interests include reading, sports, traveling, outdoor activities, and spending time with family. He looks forward to sharing his love for reading, sports, and spending time outdoors with our next child and teaching them the importance of being healthy and active.
Tyesia’s love and sincerity towards people is what drew me to her. She is smart, beautiful, driven, and has a nurturing personality and passionate heart for making everyone feel loved. Since the beginning of our marriage, she has been an awesome stepmom to Skylar.
Tyesia has a doctorate in Electrical Engineering and is a leader within the defense sector. Her resume is impeccable, yet her humble spirit and smile mean more than her accolades. She is always seeking knowledge, her personal interests are reading about financial economics, spending time with family, traveling, and yoga. She enjoys sharing her passion for STEM education and teaching financial literacy to Skylar. She is looking forward to sharing her passion for STEM and exploring new technology areas with our baby.
Our Daughter and Family
Our daughter, Skylar, is a smart and kind high school senier. She’s an athlete and loves to attend sporting events together with her father. She also has an interest in nature and enjoys national parks and learning about different facets of wildlife. We know she will be a wonderful big sister.
We have multiple family members and close friends within a 30-mile radius and love spending time with them and creating memories. The holiday season is our favorite time to get together with everyone, especially Thanksgiving. There are wonderful grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews who are excited about our adoption and are thrilled to welcome our child into the fun! Fortunately, with family nearby, there will be fellowship and support shown throughout the year, not just on holidays.
Our Home in Northern Virginia
We look forward to sharing our 5 bedroom home filled with love, laughter, and prayer. Our home has a finished basement located in a beautiful suburb 25 minutes from the big city. Our gender-neutral nursery is next to our master bedroom and is in the process of being finished and ready! Our neighbors are extremely family oriented and have been anticipating with joy since we informed them of our decision to adopt. The school systems in our area are ranked in the top 10 in the United States. There is a new elementary school and playground within walking distance of our home. Our surrounding neighborhood has walking trails, multicultural backgrounds, a water park, a recreation center, private childcare options, and much more.
We promise to provide a safe and peaceful environment with unconditional love for your child to grow physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. We promise to teach and model for them a life with God and faith at the center. We promise to educate, nurture, and help him or her realize their full potential.
As parents, look forward to teaching your child Christian values and sharing our love for traveling, cooking, and spending time with family. Your child will know his or her story and grow up knowing that they are loved by God, by you, and by us. We look forward to keeping in contact with updates, pictures, and letters.
