Tiffany & Teddy

Hoping to Adopt (North Carolina)


Our Home

We live in North Carolina just between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the beautiful Carolina coast. We live in a 3-bedroom/2-bathroom home, located in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. Our home is a short distance away from hiking trails, parks, museums, zoos and sporting venues. We are lucky to live in a state that is surrounded by universities that are considered to be some of the top rated schools.

Meet Teddy (Through the Eyes of Tiffany)

It's hard to put all that Teddy is into words. I barely remember life before him and I can't imagine life without him. When we met, he was a stabilizing force in my life. He makes me a better person. Teddy is a godly man and one of the most thoughtful people I know. If I had to describe Teddy in one word it would be loving. He is a very honest and giving person. He comes from a large extended family that is very close. His loyalty to his family and friends makes me respect him even more. He is a hard worker and always makes sure his family is provided for. One of the things that draws people towards Teddy is how friendly he is. He is the type of person that loves getting to know someone and hearing their unique stories. He "tries" to be a handy man around the house but isn't always successful. There's no denying that he always keeps everyone around him laughing! Watching Teddy become a father has warmed my heart and brought our family so much joy. He is a natural at fatherhood and by far Elias' favorite playmate!

Meet Tiffany (Through the Eyes of Teddy)

Tiffany is my teammate in life; she is my best friend, and biggest supporter. She is the one God designed just for me. She is the most selfless and generous person I know. If I had to describe Tiffany in one word it would be caring. From our first interaction together when we spent hours talking about everything under the sun, I knew she was the one for me. She has a deep, genuine love for children; they are drawn to her. Tiffany has a great sense of humor. Her smile is infectious and she makes me laugh daily at her silly jokes. She is fiercely independent and is very successful in her career. My absolute favorite role to see her in is motherhood. The bond that her and Elias have is undeniable. The best part of my day is getting to see the two of them together.

Meet Elias

We were blessed to welcome Elias into our family at the beginning of 2021 through adoption. He is the sweetest little boy with the biggest personality! He is a typical rambunctious boy, full of energy. He loves exploring and is always on the move keeping us on our toes! We look forward to welcoming another child into our home and watching Elias become a big brother!

Our Families & Traditions

We are both of European descent and were raised surrounded by large extended families that still play a pivotal role in our daily lives. We were both brought up traditionally learning about our heritage, culture and family history. Maintaining our culture and embracing others is very important to us. Most of Tiffany's family still lives in Florida. We are very fortunate to be able to travel there and visit often. Most of Teddy's family live within 10 minutes of us. We are so thankful to have such a strong support system with lots of younger cousins for our children to grow up with. We have 2 Godsons that are 13 years old. They are both a very important part of our lives. Teddy is the youngest of 3 children; he has an older brother and sister, 2 nieces and 2 nephews. We are very close with Teddy's mother, his father sadly passed away 4 years ago. Tiffany is an only child and we are very close with her mother, father, and stepmother.
