About Us/Me

Thank you for looking at our profile.  Brianna herself was adopted by her father, and one of Tim’s sisters was adopted into another family. These experiences lead us to believe no matter the circumstances, you are likely weighing a challenging decision. We hope this brief visit with one another via our profile will be helpful to you. We (Brianna and Tim) met in 2009 after being set up by a mutual friend. We owe her big time. :) We have been fortunate to enjoy a wonderful relationship together.  From Brianna on Tim: Tim is endlessly patient and kind.

 

About You

We are excited to meet you through Choice Network because we hope as you consider your options that choice is at the root of your decision. We hope you have support, encouragement and love around you as you make your decision. Know that no matter how lengthy or brief our connection, we send you support and encouragement and wish you well as you proceed. We both have deep respect for women who consider adoption, as both of our mothers confronted these choices from the place of a birth mother. From Brianna: there are no words of thanks powerful enough to say to a woman who considers adoption. I have wanted to be a mother for years, and have tried diligently.

We hope this brief visit with one another via our profile will be helpful to you. We (Brianna and Tim) met in 2009 after being set up by a mutual friend. We owe her big time. :) We have been fortunate to enjoy a wonderful relationship together.  From Brianna on Tim: Tim is endlessly patient and kind. I fell in love with him after watching him play the guitar for the first time. He is mature and comfortable in his own skin. He can walk confidently into a crowded room of strangers. He holds me lovingly when I cry, which, in our long and difficult journey to become parents, I have done a fair amount. He is very smart, and is stimulated by learning new things.  Tim on Brianna: Brianna is brave and unflinching. Brianna is Mexican-American, and proud of her identity.  Brianna’s family did not have the same opportunities that many other families have, particularly as children.  As a result, Brianna’s jobs have entailed working for justice, particularly for children of color and children living in poverty, and she often finds herself leading through difficult discussions and situations. She is extraordinarily strong and kind. I learn new things from her every day. We are both excited to share the best of each other with children in our family, welcoming someone into our home with two dogs and a cat, and our broader family with five aunts, four uncles, four nieces and five nephews.

From Brianna: there are no words of thanks powerful enough to say to a woman who considers adoption. I have wanted to be a mother for years, and have tried diligently. When I am able to parent, I know it will be one of the greatest experiences in my life. I already feel endless gratitude and love for the woman who will bring our child into the world.We are hoping to connect with a birth family that can equip us with an honest, even if difficult, story to tell our child about their origin. Brianna's birth father was incarcerated when she was little and ultimately Brianna was adopted by her mother's husband. While this story contained sadness and loss, it was invaluable to Brianna's sense of identity to know who her birth parent was, and what drove his adoption choice. We hope this gives you a helpful glimpse of who we are. Best of luck!
