S: Tim and Angie

BC: We look forward to meeting you | Tim and Angie

FC: Tim and Angie | A Family Built on Amazing Grace

1: Built on Amazing Grace by 4 Him I can see it so vividly In a memory-the simplicity Of the strength of a father, prayers of a mother And the trust of a child. Just a virtuous family Such a place of hope, such a place of peace And whatever the matter we all stayed together Through the toughest of times Cause love was the common bond for all Looking back I still recall. | A Song that describes our past, present and future families

3: Dear Brithparents: We know that you have come to this decision to place your child with an adoptive family because you want what is best for your child. You are making a great sacrifice for the child that you love very much. We admire your strength and courage for choosing an adoption plan for your child. We are thankful that you are reading our profile, and would love to receive the gift that you can give; for us to become the adoptive parents of your child. We are Tim and Angie. Adoption was always thought of as an option for us to grow our family, and now it has become the smartest choice for us. Tim, himself, was adopted as an infant in Michigan, in the 1960's. Tim's parents also adopted his younger sister, Kim. We hope and pray that you get to know us a little by looking through this profile book. We believe that God has chosen for us to be adoptive parents, and that He has the right placement for your child in His plan too. Right now, we don't know the outcome-- but we trust that He will guide us all. In Christ's Love. Tim and Angie

4: Adoption fits Us | Peter Timothy adopted by Pete and Mary Lou My Thoughts on being adopted: The selfless gift my birthmother made, granted me blessings by placing me in my adoptive family. While I someday hope to meet her, I know that characteristics of her live on with and through me. My placement with my adoptive family gave me opportunities and experiences that have very much enriched my life. And for that, I am thankful. | Tim, on the day his parents brought him home.

7: { | { | LOVE | Our Love Story Tim proposed to me after a birthday dinner at the same restaurant that we had our first date. We watched the sunset from Silver Beach, and that is when he gave me one last gift-- 25 bubble gum machine rings and the one in the center that was my engagement ring. Our wedding was at the church I grew up in.. The minister from our church married us. Much like all we do, our wedding was a family affair, and we did most things ourselves, including the invitations. Family and Friends were an important part of our ceremony. But most of all, God was to be involved from the start, and we hoped and prayed that we could glorify God in our ceremony, since He was the one that brought us together.
