Hello, we are Tish and Travis. Thank you for stopping by to learn more about our family, how adoption has changed our lives once before, and how we are praying to expand our family once again!
Our paths crossed while we were in college at The University of Texas when a mutual friend introduced us. At first, Tish didn’t want to date Travis, but Travis managed to convince her for a first date. Travis later learned that the only reason Tish agreed to the date was because Travis was willing to go to church with Tish before dinner (in fact, Tish thought that she would scare Travis off by saying “You are welcome to come to church with me!”). As you can imagine, sharing the same faith was important early on in our relationship. We finished college and got married in Tish’s hometown in southern Texas in 2005.
Our journey to having children had a lot of ups and downs. When we were not successful in having our own children, we felt called to pursue adoption. In 2016, we were blessed to welcome home our son Ashton. He is hands down the biggest blessing of our lives! We are also fortunate to stay in touch with Ashton’s birth mother, for whom we have the greatest admiration and respect. We feel called once again to open our hearts and to grow our family via adoption.
