The Farley Family
Diane and Tim came to You Gotta Believe in 2017. They had been married for about 13 years when they decided to open their home to an older child. They considered their own ages at the time and felt that an older child would fit well into their family. The Farleys took part in YGB’s new parent training and Tim’s humor had the class laughing throughout the 10 weeks. Once licensed, they began their search.
Although their initial plan was to adopt just one female child, their plans quickly changed after meeting two little girls at a matching event. While at the matching event, they saw a cute little girl and decided to go over and meet her. Soon after spending time with her, the little girl surprised the couple and introduced them to her sister. The couple quickly found out that the girls were to be adopted together and were soon smitten with the duo.
They called their YGB worker from the car and informed her that they were interested in not one kid, but two! They were matched and quickly bonded over sled rides and meals together. They officially became a family via Zoom on September 15, 2020.
Diane and Tim are enjoying a second childhood with their kids and love watching their girls grow up. Now that the adoption has been finalized, the family of four looks forward to their future together.
