Lisa & Tim
Thank you for choosing to view our profile! We are grateful for the opportunity to share our story with you. We thank you for having the courage and foresight to make the ultimate sacrifice for the best interest of your child.
We want nothing more than to give your child a loving, affectionate, and safe home.
We have dreamed of becoming parents our whole lives and this opportunity will grant us that wish.
We were introduced through a blind date, which just so happened to be trivia night. The stars aligned when we realized we both excelled at the Star Trek trivia questions – we are both sci-fi geeks at heart! After our second date we both knew we would be together forever.
A year later, Tim proposed and nine months later we married in front of 25 of our closest friends and family at a historic hotel in Rhode Island.
Aside from our love of Star Trek, we are different in a lot of ways. Tim is very outgoing and boisterous, and Lisa is quieter and more reserved. Our sense of humor and values are right in line with each other’s and that is one of the reasons we are so drawn to each other.
We are so excited to welcome a child into our home to share in all the laughter and fun we have together.
We share our home with our 2 year old Siamese-Maine Coon cat named Maverick. We rescued him when he was a kitten. Every morning, Maverick and Tim have a playtime routine to start their day and every night, Maverick and Lisa have a routine of cuddling before bed. He is so sweet and we expect that he will be just as loving to our future child.
My parents instilled some of the greatest core values and traits that have made me the man I am today.
When I was 6 years old, my parents sat me down in the kids’ section of our favorite book store and handed me a book that sits on my book shelf today. “Why Was I Adopted?” By: Carole Livingston. That’s why I will be a great adoptive Dad, because I was lucky enough to be adopted, too.
There are so many things I can’t wait to do with our future child. It’s completely overwhelming to think about everything all at once. Plain and simple, I just want to be a Dad.
I enjoyed school growing up, and balanced my passion for athletics, academics, art and theater. I pursued a degree in Business, and for the past 14 years, I have been the Vice President and partner of my own company. I am blessed with having a lot of flexible time to start and end my days as I see fit.
I come from a small family with only one younger sister, Reagan. Reagan is also adopted and her and I share a special bond because of that. I have many cousins who are like brothers and sisters to me. Every year, we host a large Christmas party at our house, and we invite the whole family. It is a blast and we look forward to it all year. We are lucky that my parents live right down the street from us.
I grew up in a military family and moved often when I was younger. I was born in Germany and have lived all over the United States. I am one of 10 siblings, having five brothers and four sisters. Most of my siblings live in Massachusetts and we visit them several times a year. In total, we have 14 nieces and nephews on my side of the family, so our future child will have many cousins!
As you can imagine, I grew up in a very active…and loud…home! Ironically, I am actually very quiet and enjoy peaceful activities. My favorite hobbies include reading, baking during the holidays, and being outside hiking or paddle boarding. Having a comfortable and cozy home makes me happy, and I like to share that with our friends and family. When I was young, I loved math and knew I would work with numbers. I have worked in investments at the same Financial Services company for the past 13 years, and I am lucky to be able to work from home several days a week.
I am most looking forward to reading to our future child and taking them to the library! There is nothing better than picking out a new book! I can’t wait to teach them how to make the perfect apple pie and I am also excited to share my love of nature with our future child.
Our Home and Community
We are lucky to live in beautiful Rhode Island. Rhode Island is a small state in New England surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Living in a small state, we are a short drive to everywhere. We live 45 minutes from the beach, 20 minutes from a great Zoo, and 45 minutes from Boston, Massachusetts.
We have many beautiful vacation destinations just a couple of hours away as well, like one of our favorite vacation spots, Maine.
We live in a historic neighborhood in our town and many homes were built in the late 1800s and early 1900s, so they have a lot of character and history.
Our home is on a one-way street and we have a fenced in yard with a large oak tree. We live right down the street from our local park, which has a mini-zoo, carousel and a bike and walking path that leads across the whole state of Rhode Island.
We are within walking distance of all of the local schools and we also live within walking distance of the minor league baseball stadium of the Pawsox! Every weekend in the summer they have fireworks that we can watch from our backyard!
