Meet Tommy & Kimberly G.

Adoptive family

Dear Expectant Family,

We are Tommy and Kimberly, and we’d like to express how deeply thankful we are that you are taking the time to get to know our family. We’ve both felt the call to pursue adoption since our childhoods, and feel very fortunate to have reached a place in our lives where we can provide a welcoming home in which your child will always be loved. We look forward to showering your child with love and support, to nurturing them with learning and laughter, and to accompanying them throughout their childhood, in times both exceptional and ordinary. They will never go a day without hearing the words “I love you!”

Loving couple

Our journey together began in 2012, and we married in March of 2016. We both grew up in incredibly safe, supportive and loving families, and we will be very intentional in creating the same environment for our child. That environment includes being embedded in a church family where we can be connected to God and to our community.

We are fortunate to have loving siblings who have brought a total of four nephews and two nieces into our lives. When we aren’t with family, we often spend time with friends sharing meals, playing board games, hosting fun events like a murder mystery party, or watching TV.

Wonderful parents for your child

Meet Our Family

We married in 2016, and we genuinely have had the happiest possible marriage.

Tommy About Kim: Kim is the most caring person I’ve ever known. Whether it’s making sure the fridge is stocked full of drinks whenever someone is stopping by the house or ensuring every- one in a group feels completely included in whatever activity we’re doing, Kim always goes out of her way to have a positive impact on those around her. She is dedicated to everything she sets her mind to. I know that as a mother she will give an unbelievable amount of love and care to our child while also challenging them to learn more, experience more, and be the best person they can be.

We are ready to be parents
We can never read too many books with our nieces and nephews.

Kim About Tommy: Not a day goes by where I don’t fall in love with Tommy all over again. He is patient, encouraging, and incredibly smart. He provides for our family and always makes sure our life is full of joy and fun. Our nieces and nephews absolutely adore him. As a manager at work, Tommy is compassionate and understanding, always lending an open ear and open heart in helping his teammates grow both personally and professionally. I have no doubt that as we expand our family I will watch with a proud and overjoyed heart as he becomes the best dad ever.

A great home for your child
We have a beautiful home in Clintonville, a small suburb of Columbus.

Our life together – At work & play

We both work from our home in Clintonville, a safe, quaint neighborhood of Columbus. We love that we get to spend every workday with each other — and with our dog, who frequently sits on Tommy’s lap the whole day!

Kim works as a software engineer and Tommy works as a software engineering manager. We love the work we do, but as we welcome a child into our life we want to ensure they have a full-time parent, and so Kim is planning to take an extended period of time away from work to spend with our child. Our home is just down the road from a number of parks with walking trails and huge playgrounds. We also have lots of cafes, fun restaurants, and a few great schools all within walking distance. When we need a break from work and Ohio, we love to travel. Whether it’s vacationing with friends in North Carolina, meeting up with Kim’s family in Japan, or just enjoying ourselves at a resort in Cancun, we love to get away for a bit, and cannot wait to share these adventures with our future child!

Thank you for considering us as your child’s adoptive parents. There are no words to fully convey how grateful we are. We know you will make the best and most loving decision for your child, no matter what that decision looks like.

With Love,
Tommy & Kim
