Hi, we are Lory and Tommy, thank you for viewing our profile. Our families were friends so we basically grew up together. Lory always knew from a young age that she was going to marry Tommy. During our senior year of high school we started spending a lot of time together camping. We realized how much we had in common, family values, dreams of a large family, work ethic, kind hearted people that always wanted to make everyone happy. We have been together ever since and just celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary! We have an 8-year-old daughter named Sierra who cannot wait to become a big sister!
We are a close family. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends. We take an annual family vacation with over 100 friends and family members. We participate in an annual Christmas Eve pajama party. We have an annual Easter Egg hunt. We believe in making lasting memories by spending quality time with our children, family and friends. We talk about our day at the dinner table, for instance what positive things happened, anything negative happen, what we could have done better, what we did well and what we learned that day. Before bed we all snuggle on the couch, our dog Bentley and the cats too, and read a book or just hold each other.
When we first started looking into the adoption process we only wanted a closed adoption however, through research and education on open adoption we now understand how important birth family contact is for both the child and the birth family. We feel it is important for the child to know where they came from, to know that they were loved and the decision of adoption was not an easy one. We are open to birth family communications and are willing to share pictures, letters and e-mail updates with the birth family. We want the birth family to feel comfortable and confident in their decision so we will consider any requests you may have.
