1: Our Family Trevor, Courtney Tabry & Talyn
2: Dear Birthmom, In the following pages you will see a glimpse into what our family looks like. As you review our book, we pray you will also see our hearts. Our children are our greatest blessings in life. Trevor and I strongly desire to teach them the love of Christ. We believe in doing that, we are building a foundation for their future. We are a family centered around love. In all things we do, we want our kids to feel the depth of the love we have for them. We have two boys, Tabry and Talyn. They are six months apart. Each having their own unique story of how they became a part of our family. We treasure their stories. We have prayed for another opportunity to welcome a new child to our family. A child is one of the most precious things in life and you have helped bring this child into the world. As with the boys birthmoms, please know your child will always know the depth of love you have for them as well. We tell the boys, God brought them to us through love. We know it takes a great amount of love for you as a birthmom to make this decision. Our children will always know they were adopted. We believe this is important. They need to understand even if they don't look the same as us, we are their family designed by God. We feel by being honest with them and helping to answer their questions along the journey, it will provide them a greater sense of security. Trevor and I have been married for nearly 14 years. We both have a heart for children. Trevor is very energetic and outgoing. He loves to be around people. He loves sports and sharing these activities with our kids. My personality is quieter than my husbands. I love to do things with friends. I love being a stay at home mom, and picking my kids up from school everyday. I also enjoy shopping, and decorating our home. I think you will see the boys personalities pop from the pages of this book! ! Tabry is our oldest and he is our quiet one. He likes to take care of his brother, and LOVES having his "bub" as his best friend. Talyn is our go-getter. He's never met a challenge he doesn't conquer. He loves playing sports. And he LOVES having a "bubs" to play with. Please know we are praying for you and this difficult decision. If it is God's plan for your child to be placed in our lives, we look forward to meeting you. Please know we will love him/her unconditionally. Adoption has changed our lives forever and we look forward to having another child to walk down this journey with. Blessings, Trevor, Courtney, Tabry & Talyn
