Meet Denise & John T.

Adoptive family


It is so nice to “meet” you. We are honored to be sharing our story and we pray for the opportunity to listen to the hopes and dreams you have for your child.

A Little Bit About Us…
We have been married for three years and have a biological daughter, Molly, who just turned two. Due to a difficult pregnancy, adoption will be the blessing that allows us to complete our family. We eat dinner together as a family every night, which is why the big Amish kitchen table that we received as a wedding gift was perfect for us. You will often find us in the kitchen cooking and having dance parties with Molly. We cherish spending time with the people we love and what better way to do that than around a big kitchen table! We hope to make you feel loved and welcomed at our table.

Loving family for your child

Meet Denise (written by John)
Denise fills our house with fun, laughter, and adventures. She is always up for a trip to the park, playing in our backyard or going for a bike ride. Denise has a lot of interests and a sense of adventure. After getting her nursing degree, she traveled to Alaska to be a nurse at a children’s camp! I am so proud of everything she has accomplished, including opening a cupcake shop when she was single. Denise is now a stay-at-home mom and is happy that she will be able to spend so much time with your baby. She will provide your child with every opportunity to explore their interests!

Wonderful parents for your baby

Meet John (written by Denise)
John is a jack of all trades! He loves working with his hands and was a mechanic before becoming a mechanical engineer. Education is something he has learned to value. He is passionate about providing the best educational opportunities for your child. One of the things I love most about John is that he is a such a loving dad. He never misses a chance to tell his family that he loves us. He will make your child feel like the most important person in the world!

Wonderful parents for your baby

Meet Molly…Future Big Sister!
Molly is the happiest toddler, giving out hugs and kisses all the time. She loves music and dancing. She likes to play with her kitchen set and often offers you a cupcake and a teacup. She will be a fantastic big sister one day and we look forward to watching them grow a special sibling bond.

Family Values
We value sharing quality time and connecting with each other, being both silly and thoughtful. We value our relationship with God and know through him all things are possible. As parents, we will value you and your child’s unique story. We will value their feelings, interests, and enthusiasm for the world. We will strive to nurture your child’s mind, body, and soul, helping them grow into an independent healthy adult.

With love and respect,
Denise and John

Our Family At a Glance

We live in northwest Ohio.
Denise works as a stay-at-home mom and John is a mechanical engineer.
Our hobbies include going to yard sales, biking, baking and family adventures.
We believe in open adoption because a child cannot have too much love. Open adoption is good for the entire family and based on a lot of research we know that open adoption helps the child have a strong sense of belonging and answers questions like “who do I look like?”
