hoping to adopt: the Johnson family


We are Timmy and Niccole the overly excited parents of our son Ollie, and Thor
our Maltese.  Prior to being married Niccole knew that at some point
in her life she wanted to adopt children, her mother was adopted
at birth, so naturally adoption had always been a part
of her life. Timmy thought adoption sounded like a great idea in the
future. We enjoyed five fun years of marriage together studying, working, traveling and enjoying our lives together with out any children.

After many years of trying to become pregnant without
any infertility treatments, the thought popped into our heads that NOW
is the time for us to adopt! DUH!


The day our birth mother contacted us we were shocked! We were hit with a flood of emotions that we still can remember today. Through ourcorrespondence with our birth mother we got to know each other and
felt so much love for her. We had the great privilege of spending many
months with our birth mother and lots of sleepovers at our home. She
was and is like a little sister to Niccole. We grew to love her more
than we can adequately express. She is a dream come true to us! She
gave birth to our sweet angel, Ollie,in September 2011.

We were so fortunate to be at the hospital with her and got to partake in
watching her love Ollie just as we do. She is incredibly strong. Those
days were extremely emotional for each of us. We were so ecstatic to
be parents yet our hearts were breaking watching the pain in her eyes.

We cannot imagine how painful that time was for her.
Ollie is the joy of our lives. He is the most beautiful child ever
with a wild curly fro, chunky thighs and a big belly. His rosy cheeks
are full, his lips are luscious and his skin is milky smooth.  He is
the perfect mix of African-American, Panamanian and Caucasian. A true
breathtaking beauty.

We have witnessed in our lives a modern day miracle. We are still in
awe of our adoption journey. With out God in our lives
this would not be possible. We can still recall feeling surrounded in
so much love through out many times of the adoption process. The
spirit touched us and our birth family in ways we never had known
before. There is not a day that passes that we are not thinking of our
birth mother. It has been a joy to watch her move forward in her life.
She has overcome giant obstacles and continues to thrive. We are truly
grateful to maintain a life long and forever relationship with her.

Niccole absolutely loves being a stay at home mother. She left her
fashion career behind and has never looked back. She spoils Ollie each
day. Which is evident in the mass amounts of photos she continually
posts on Instagram!  Timmy is lucky to work for himself with an office
10 minutes from our home. We spend a lot of time together toting Ollie
all over the place! Timmy enjoys surfing and photography so each
Saturday you can find us in Laguna Beach, CA on the sand.
Ollie is now 18 months, the time sure does fly! He is very active and
enjoys playing with our 8-pound pup. But he really needs a sibling!
We are eager to grow our family once again through adoption. We plan
to adopt all of our children and pray that once again we can witness
another miracle in our lives.
To catch a glimpse into our daily lives and see what we are all about
follow us along on Instagram. What you see is what you get! The good,
the sad, the fun, the boring, it’s all us.

We sure would love for you to help spread the word that we are looking
to adopt in the United States. Thank you for reading along!
Timmy, Niccole, Ollie and Thor Johnson
