Meet Julie & Tyler G.

Adoptive family

Dear Birth Parents,

We are incredibly grateful that you’re taking the time to learn more about our family, and how you and your child might be a part of it. You are in the middle of making such an emotional, difficult, but beautiful decision, so please know how much we respect and honor you. It is our hope to be a support for you and to fulfill the hopes you have for your child through this journey.

We are the kind of family that loves to do everything together. As parents, we create an environment for our kids to thrive and be healthy, fun, kind little people and eventually, adults. Parenthood is a huge job but it’s truly our greatest joy. We first started talking about growing our family through adoption while we were just dating nearly 10 years ago. Our heart for adoption has grown tremendously over the years of our marriage as we’ve made great friends who have adopted children, and as we’ve educated ourselves on the lifelong commitment to adoption. We know in our hearts that now is the right time and we are so excited to add another little one to our crew!

About Julie, by Tyler. Julie is strong, intelligent, selfless, devoted, and hilarious. She is constantly serving others, from nurturing and playing with our kids all day, to making meals for our friends and church family when they could use some love and support. Outside of her stay-at-home mama role, she loves trying out new recipes, painting with watercolors, and getting outside any chance she can get. While Julie takes her role of helping our children grow and develop to their fullest potential very seriously, she also knows how to have a LOT of fun along the way! She is the center of our family and we are so blessed to have her.

About Tyler, by Julie. Tyler is kind, passionate, positive, and energetic. He works as a researcher at a local children’s hospital and loves being a very active dad in our children’s lives. When not wrestling our kids or making Julie laugh, Tyler enjoys reading, playing guitar, and working out. It’s really hard to have a bad day around Tyler- trust me, I’ve tried. 🙂 He isn’t a morning person or an evening person- he is an ALL DAY person, sun up to sun down. That’s certainly true of his character as a father! The energy and love he has for our family fills us up and keeps us going.

Meet Our Kids. Emery is our curly-haired goofball. She is our daily entertainment, constantly making us laugh! As such a smart, imaginative little girl, she spends most of her day in her own little world pretending to be different movie characters or reading books. As the oldest child, we know that Emery will be a loyal and loving leader of her siblings. Jude is our little joy boy! He is a lover of trucks and cars, and is very fond of all animals, especially the horses and donkeys at Tyler’s brother’s ranch. Although he’s a busy and active boy, he still has such a gentle spirit. Jude has the biggest smile, a tender heart, and he loves his big sister more than anything.

Our Promise to You. Your child will be loved beyond measure and will always know the love that you first had for them by making this sacrifice. We would love for our child to know you and to know their story. We promise to raise this child celebrating their identity and culture, especially if it is different from our own. Know that we are already praying for you and your child every single day and we cannot wait to get to know you.

With love,
Tyler and Julie
