Hello from North Carolina! We’re Tyler and Kali, and we are so honored you are taking the time to learn about us. We are thrilled to grow our family through adoption and would love to share with you a bit about our current lives and what we look forward to doing in growing our family. We are excited to share our sense of adventure with your child while providing a loving, safe space for them as they grow. We would love to keep in touch with you at your comfort level through letters, pictures, and occasional visits.
We met in high school, began dating at the end of our senior year, attended college together, and married after we graduated! Adoption has been on our hearts for a number of years, and we are thrilled to now grow our family in this way! Our home is full of love and laughter, and we’re excited to share our home and hearts with a child.
We are a strong team, and we love to spend time together, whether it’s gardening or taking a trip across the country. It’s important for us to talk, connect, and spend quality time with each other while we prepare meals and enjoy them together. Camping and traveling are two of our all-time favorite things to do as a family. We love to visit exciting new places all across the United States in our camper!
We look forward to including your child at our dining table each evening and hearing all about their day, including them in all of our adventures, and showing them new things everywhere we go.
Meet Tyler (by Kali)
Tyler is an adventurous, fun-loving outdoorsman that is devoted to family. During the weekdays, you can find Tyler working for our city as the Stormwater/Engineering Coordinator. He enjoys growing vegetables, doing lawn care for his aunt that lives next door, camping, playing with our animals, and cooking delicious meals (He’s usually the one cooking on our camping trips!). When Tyler is around, there is never a shortage of laughter. He will be an amazing parent, and I know he is looking forward to coaching our child on whatever sport they show interest in, teaching them some of his camping skills, and showing them how to catch the biggest fish in the pond.
Tyler is an Eagle Scout, which means he has lots of outdoor and survival knowledge!
Meet Kali (by Tyler)
Kali is a kind, caring and selfless person that has always dreamed of becoming a parent. She loves volunteering in the nursery at church and playing with our young nephews whenever we are together. Kali is a part-time office manager at our church, which she is glad for as it will allow her to spend most of each day with our child. She values education and looks forward to using her training as a teacher to ensure that our child is equipped academically. She is particularly excited to share her love of music and hopes to teach them to play an instrument. Kali enjoys gardening, crafting, sewing, baking, camping, and spending time with family. I look forward to seeing her fulfill her dream of being a parent.
Kali keeps up with each adventure by taking lots of photos and scrapbooking.
We live within a 3-mile radius of each of our families. We love to spend time having Sunday lunches and suppers with each side of our family. Kali‘s mom and dad, who have been married for 40 years, are already wonderful grandparents to our nephews and can’t wait to share their love with a new grandbaby! Tyler‘s parents, who have been married for 35 years, are excitedly deciding what names their first grandchild will call them.
Kali’s siblings live nearby as well and are very much looking forward to spoiling a sweet new addition to the family. Tyler’s brother lives locally and is looking forward to taking our child to Carolina Panther games. His sister lives one state away and looks forward to sharing all of our family traditions!
We go to the beach annually with each of our families, and we look forward to including our child in all the fun! They will be loved and cherished by each member of our family.
Our Home and Pets in North Carolina
Our home is situated in the rolling foothills of North Carolina, surrounded by 50 acres of family farmland. It is a joy to be surrounded by family and neighbors who are excited for our family to grow through adoption. Our backyard is perfect for a swing set, sandbox, slide, and makeshift ball field. There is plenty of room to roam and explore the great outdoors, including the creek that borders our property.
We have one cat, KitKat, and one dog, Cooper. Both are great with kids and are around them often as our nephews love to spend time with them. KitKat is 2 years old and incredibly gentle and loving. Cooper is a gentle 10-year-old labrador/pointer who loves taking naps by the front door.
We promise that your child will be unconditionally loved and cared for. We will provide a safe, loving, stable, Christian home where happiness is a priority. We promise to share our love for family, God, and the outdoors with your child. Our family and friends will welcome your child with open arms and help us raise them to be a kind, honest, and joyful individual. It is our promise to be in contact with you at your comfort level- be it through letters, pictures, or visits. You will always be held in high regard in our home, and your child will grow up knowing the love that you and we share for them.
