BC: Love is all you need.
FC: All you need is love. | Tara & James
1: Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile book and allowing us to tell you more about ourselves. We both come from family’s where adoption is near and dear to our hearts. Several cousins were welcomed into both sides of the family and, as a newborn Jim himself was adopted. We want to thank you for choosing an adoption plan for your baby. Please know that we are here on the journey with you; in prayer, heart and person. Today as you view our profile and get to know us a little may you feel the love and joy our family has to share. We met at work 8 years ago and have been together ever since. In 2009 we were married on the beach at sunrise in North Carolina. Over the years we have grown as individuals and as a couple, with our foundation remaining our love for God and each other .We have a lifetime of love, joy and new experiences ahead of us but feel a part of our family is missing to share it with. We have always wanted to be parents and adoption has been written on both of our hearts long before we met

3: Tara has been my wife for two years and my best friend for eight. She is a Registered Nurse which allows her flexibility to stay home and raise a family. Her heart is filled with compassion and she has the art of healing flowing from her soul. She enjoys the simple things in life like gardening, quilting, photography, the outdoors, and long walks with our dog Lucy. Family is very important to her and whenever children are around, Tara is always with them playing and taking care of them as if they were her own. Most importantly, Tara strives to put God first in our lives. | Tara by Jim

5: Jim by Tara | I was instantly drawn to Jim for his contagious smile, caring nature, and easy going attitude. He works as a Registered Occupation Therapist at a Nursing home. At first he may seem shy but under his gentle appearance is a savvy sense of humor and adventurous guy. He enjoys relaxing lazy days at home, almost anything outdoors, and working on a new home project. He is also a great cook. He usually surprises me and cooks dinner twice a week and, every Sunday, he continues my grandparents tradition of pancakes. He is a die hard Denver Bronco football fan as well as a proud supporter of Red Bull and USA soccer.He loves spending time with family and friends and playing with our dog Lucy. He loves children and can not wait to be a dad one day. Jim is one of the most caring, unselfish, and nurturing men I have ever known. | Relaxing

10: Our House
11: In 2008 we purchased our first house, a 4 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath ranch in a nice quiet country development. There is plenty of space inside and out to play, grow and let childhood imagination take flight. We have a large yard with a small vegetable garden and flowers. Our neighborhood is safe and secure with the perfect integration of young family's and old. | Vegetable Garden

16: Things we do for
17: Together we make everything fun. We enjoy outdoor adventures and activities like camping, outdoor concerts, music events, long walks on wooded trails, and having lazy days at home. We especially enjoy going to the ocean; yearly we vacation at North Carolina and rent a house on the beach with friends and family. We also visit family who live up in Canada every year. We spend time at the Saratoga Race Track in the summer and enjoy watching the horses race as well as having picnics in the park. We really enjoy anything as long as we are doing it together
19: We realize that this is only a glimpse into our lives but we want you to know that we have an abundance of love and joy to share. We want our child to grow up knowing that they are loved by both their birthparents and us, that we prayed for them to come into our lives and they were born into our hearts. We hope our child will have a wonderful relationship with their birthparents for it from you that our prayers were answered. In Light & Love, Jim and Tara
