A Letter from Josh & Tia

Dear Birthmother,

We are a Christian family of two excited to become first-time parents and fill our home with more love, more fun, and more laughter. We enjoy spending time with family, having game nights, big Sunday dinners, fun days at the park, and going on vacations. After trying to conceive for a few years, we found ourselves called to start our family through adoption. Opening our hearts and home to your child feels like something we were always meant to do. We look forward to continuing our story with you.

About Us

We have known each other for over 21 years! We met in 8th grade at a Christian sports facility where we both played basketball and found out we would be attending the same high school the following year. In school, we became amazing friends, that friendship turned to love, and we have been married now for over 6 years. We love to spend time with our families. They are the reason we have the Lord our God as the center of our lives. We plan to educate your child in the Word as well, by starting them off getting involved in the great youth programs at church that not only teach but have fun activities outside of the church as well.

About Tia

Tia has always had a heart for children. I’ve been a witness to that for the past 15 years; watching her go from assisting with kids at church, to now being a lead teacher. Seeing her become a mother will be the most natural transition of her life. Tia received her Associates Degree in Arts & Sciences before continuing studies at university. She works part-time, loves to bake, cook, and plan parties for friends & family. I look forward to seeing her be the amazing mom she was made to be.


About Josh

Josh is the oldest of 3 brothers. He enjoys grilling in the summer time, traveling, and hanging out with the family. Josh graduated from a university in Virginia studying engineering, and he is currently an IT Product Manager at his company. I love how he can be so focused at work and then come home and be fun and silly. I’m so proud of all that he has accomplished and look forward to what I know will be his best promotion yet…becoming a dad. He has an amazing heart and will be such an awesome dad, ready to teach and love your child as his own.


About Our Home & Neighborhood in Virginia

We live in a friendly community filled with families that have children of all ages. We enjoy taking strolls down to the neighborhood pond, where we often see ducks, turtles, and our neighbors fishing. We are blessed to live in an area that is safe, has plenty of greenery, and is close to stores whenever we need anything. Being so close to different attractions makes summertime planning easy! Our home is loving, warm, happy, and comfortable.


Our Family

There are lots of family members minutes away from where we live, so your child will be loved on by extended family often. Tia’s mom, who will be known as “GiGi,” is excited to spoil her grandchild; Josh’s parents, who will be known as “Nonna” and “PaPa,” are excited to teach their grandchild all kinds of new things. Both grandmas and grandpa will be experiencing the joy of being a grandparent for the first time! Fun times and big Sunday family dinners to catch up are what your little one will enjoy.


Our Prayer and Promise to you

We promise to raise your child to the best of our ability and provide all they need. We promise to talk about you in the most positive light, sharing with them how you are forever our answered prayer. Entrusting us as parents will ensure your child is educated and well rounded, with a strong foundation of faith and family.

Our Special Interests

We both enjoy traveling to new places, experiencing and trying new things in different cultures. Finding amazing things to do once we get to a new place is always a fun challenge. Whether we are exploring an aquarium in a new city or checking out the tropical fish on an island overseas, we know just being together makes the trip exciting and another memory for the books.

Our Musical Interest

We both enjoy all types of music; from classical to pop, to soft rock, to Christian/gospel, to jazz, to R&B, we like it all.

Things We Like Doing With Family

Here are some of our favorite family activities:
Going on vacations, having game nights, hanging out at amusement parks, attending family reunions, and worshiping together.

Summer & Holiday Fun

Some fun things to do that are nearby:
Going to amusement parks, which are very close, catching some sun at Virginia Beach, exploring the science museums downtown, or being entertained at the theater watching our favorite holiday show The Nutcracker.

Things We Like Doing Together

We are truly best friends that can enjoy doing just about any and everything together. We like taking cooking classes, unwinding after a long week with a good movie night out or at home, going to comedy shows because we love to laugh, grilling in the summertime, putting up the Christmas tree, planning our big family vacations/cruises, and going to see the Atlanta Braves play baseball.

Things We Are Excited To Share With Your Child

Having your little one join our family, we would be excited to experience all the little things to all the big things as a family. We would enjoy visits to the park for picnics and games, movie nights on the couch, trips to the library for the fun family reading time for kids, exploring all the animals at the zoo, seeing how much more fun a vacation can be with a child, and even the small joy of reading a bedtime story.
