Connect with Family

Dear Birth Parent,

Hi! We are Tyler & Courtney and want to say thanks for learning about us. We can’t wait to meet you and learn your story.

A little about us: We have been married 7 yrs (together 10 yrs). We have an adopted daughter, Evelyn, who is 2 yrs old and 2 dogs, Prince (10 yrs.), Duke (3 yrs). Tyler and Courtney both work for Tyler’s family business. Courtney does bookkeeping and Tyler is in management. Tyler is a jack of many trades, from woodworking to plumbing, he can fix/build anything. Courtney is great in the kitchen even though she is a picky eater. Evelyn loves helping with everything and playing with babies, but she is a true daddy’s girl. We love the outdoors (i.e. camping, hiking, snowshoeing, yard games). We like to travel as much as we can. No matter what we are doing there is sure to be some kind of joking/teasing & healthy competition going on.

We have been looking forward to growing our family since we got married. Having a child of our own just wasn’t in our cards, but families aren’t just made up of biological connections. They are made through love, trust, pain, joy, and everything in between. Our friends and family mean the world and we want to share that world with you and your child in every way we can!

We hope this has given you some insight into us and our lives. Thank you again for taking time to hear a little of our story. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers no matter where life takes you.

Hope to meet you soon!!

 Family Traditions

Family Traditions

Holidays: We do the Turkey Trot Run/Walk every Thanksgiving morning with Tyler’s family and have a late lunch with Courtney’s extended family. Then we end the evening with dinner at Tyler’s parents, where the entire extended family ends their night too! Christmas Eve we attend church to watch Tyler’s nieces sing and we visit Courtney’s dad’s family that day as well. Christmas day we open gifts at home in the morning, then off to brunch with Tyler’s family, and then ending the night with dinner at Courtney’s mother’s.

Vacations: We love to travel as much as time and money allows! We have a camper we use as often as we can in the summer.

Family Gatherings: We attend an extended family week long cottage trip with Tyler’s family every year in July on Pearl Lake. Family is important to us and we get together whenever everyone has off over the weekend for other holidays.
