We have known each other since we were in elementary school. We lived down the street from each other and had mutual friends. We didn’t start noticing each other beyond a friendship until we were about to start high school. Tonya had her best friend call Tommy and “ask him out” for her. After that, we have always been together. We dated all the way through high school. We have such a strong bond and we like to think its because we grew into adults together so we know each other so well. We bought our first house in 2009 and got engaged in Spring 2010. We got married April of 2011. We have been married 11 years. We moved into our current home in 2014 and have no plans on moving as we love our house and the area we live.
Once we got married we starting trying for a baby. After some time of no success, we started seeking medical help. We completed one full round of IVF that was unsuccessful. We decided to close out that chapter in our life and move forward with adoption. We know without a doubt we can love a child we bring into our home just as it was our own biological child. We have had an amazing marriage and just need that missing piece of having a family.
We are ready to share our life and adventures with a child.
We see the whole full extended family during the holidays. This year we are planning for everyone to travel to Tommy's dads house in South Texas for a long weekend and we plan to rent boats and just enjoy each others company. Everyone is ready and excited for us to add a new little one to the family and join in on all the fun. We also plan a yearly trip to Florida to the beach. We would love to have a child to share all these memories with.
