2: About us Tim and I started dating June 4, 1998. Tim had just graduated high school and I was finishing my sophomore year. After I graduated high school we moved to Carbondale and both attended SIUC. Tim graduated with a degree in University Studies and I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education. In May 2003 we got married and wanted to start having kids right away! March 2004 we lost twin boys at 20 weeks. Our daughter Emma was born the next year, March 2005, and Alli joined soon after, April 2006.

5: About Mindy I graduated SIUC with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. After college I taught at a private preschool for a year before teaching Early Childhood Special Education for four years. In 2007 I turned in my resignation to stay home with our kids. I now help Tim run our business and stay home with our children. I love being a mom that can help with all the school parties, volunteer in the classroom, and be home when the kids get home from school!
7: About Tim Tim graduated from SIUC with a bachelors degree in University Studies and a minor in Outdoor Recreation and Turf and Soil Management.

18: To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.
19: Why Adoption We made the decision 5 years ago to not have anymore biological children. We hope to create a trusting relationship with a birth mother or couple who will allow us to complete our family through adoption. Our family and friends are very excited about this new chapter in our lives and can't wait to have another child to love and cherish. Emma and Alli are very excited to become big sisters and welcome a new sibling.
