A Letter from Will & Tonya
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about us. We are a fun-loving, witty, and caring couple excited to become first-time parents through adoption. After learning that Tonya could not have children our hearts were turned to adoption. We feel God has chosen us for this wonderful journey because it is in his divine plan. We have so much love to give and would love the opportunity to raise your child in a loving home filled with family and support. If you are comfortable, we would love to get to know you and hear about the hopes and dreams you have for your child!
We met 13 years ago and, in 2012, we were married!
We enjoy going to the movies, attending basketball, baseball and college football games, and love traveling to Louisiana to visit Tonya’s family, especially during the holidays. We share a passion for writing, music and the arts as well. Will is a published author and artist and Tonya is a published poet who knows how to play the baritone horn, trombone, and flute.
We attend church weekly and serve in various positions in our church. Our parents were very instrumental in our Christian walk and taught us to love one another, show kindness and always be compassionate to others- all things we look forward to passing on to your child. We believe in the importance of education and are also looking forward to encouraging and inspiring your child to reach for the stars!
When I first met Will, I knew there was something special about him. I noticed how he interacted with the women in his family- always showing respect and kindness. He is especially close with his mom and aunt. Will is very patient, caring, loving and protective. He is also a very talented artist and writer who is committed to his craft and his dreams are BIG! He is supportive of others, passionate and faith-filled in all that he does.
Will has a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh that is contagious! I know that he will be an awesome father. I know that he is looking forward to sharing his love of the arts with our child and supporting their imagination.
Tonya is an amazingly loving, down-to-earth, and fun person. She has a great sense of humor and is very passionate about education, children, and cooking. As soon as we started talking 13 years ago, we discovered that we had quite a bit in common. She has a passion for music and writing that she looks forward to sharing with our own child as well as our niece and nephew as they grow.
She is very nurturing, caring, and quite sensitive to those around her. Her passion drives her, and I know that she will be a loving and patient mom to our child. She is most looking forward to teaching our child how to play an instrument.
We love our 3-bedroom suburban home and enjoy that we are only 30 minutes from a major city. We have a large side yard that has plenty of space to play games, host family, and to place a swing set or playhouse. It is the perfect house to play and grow. Our neighborhood is very quiet and family-friendly with three parks in the area. One home is located in one of the top school districts in the area and is also located close to our church which we attend together as a family regularly.
We love spending time with our families and enjoy celebrating all of life’s milestones together.
Your child will have a large extended family to call their own! They will have 2 grandfathers, 2 grandmothers, 1 great-grandmother, 2 Aunts, 2 Uncles, 8 great-aunts, 6 great uncles and a host of cousins to play and grow alongside. Our entire family is excited to welcome your child.
We promise to provide your child with a life forever filled with love, family, laughter, and support. We will give them a strong educational foundation filled with music, art, games, and God to help them grow into their best self. They will grow up knowing their story and how they came to be part of our wonderful family.
We will treat you with the utmost respect, care, and genuine love. As we get to know, we hope to become friends as well.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We love art, music and writing.
William: Is a published author and artist. He has written two novels and created a comic book. He is very passionate about writing and drawing comic books. He also loves to read as much as possible.
Tonya: I am a published poet. I've written several poems and four were published on Poetry.com. I love music! While attending high school and college, I've marched in both the World Famed Tiger Marching Band and Concert Band. I've learned how to play three instruments: Baritone, Trombone and Flute. I'm hoping to teach our future son or daughter to play an instrument. I taught my nephew how to read music and basics of the clarinet.
We love children. We are very involved in both our niece Briana and nephew Martin lives.
We believe in the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The three are one. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was conceived by the Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and was crucified and buried. We believe Jesus Christ was raised from the dead to redeem us from our sinful ways. We believe Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life.
We believe God is able to do anything. God makes all things possible through him. We were both born and raised in the faith. We're both Baptist and belong to the same church. God has allowed us to see miraculous miracles during our faith walk. Our faith is the only thing that will continue to bring us through all situations good, bad or indifferent

We don't have any children as of yet, but we look forward to the future of having at least two children.
