My name is Travis and as you probably know by now, I am a bit different from many of the standard adoptive parents. I am a straight, single guy with one adopted son who is looking to add another baby to our family. More than likely, you are asking why I would want to adopt a child (much less two) instead of waiting to have children with a woman somewhere down the line. The honest answer is that I am not sure I will ever meet that woman, but being a father to my son, Beckham has been the biggest joy of my life. As Beckham has gotten older, he has wanted a sibling more and more and I am now at a point in my career where money is not a problem and my schedule is super flexible.
I got my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin and work in the healthcare industry. When many people were struggling to make ends meet because of COVID, I was fortunate that I got busier and was able to make an even better living for us. I have a home that we completely gutted and remodeled and it is FAR bigger than what Beckham and I need on our own.
More than anything, family and specifically my son are the driving forces in my life. I come from a large family and after graduating I moved back to my small hometown to be closer to them. It has been the best decision I have ever made and Beckham has many cousins to play with and this new baby will definitely have the same!
I am laid back and am an overall happy person. I am a major homebody, preferring to be at home with Beckham watching movies, reading, or playing with him in our HUGE yard. A typical weekend could include going to the movies or just spending time around town, visiting with family and friends. Being a Christian is also a big part of who I am.
Our favorite hobby as a family is traveling and I look forward to showing all my children the world. Our most recent trip as a family was to Italy and Beckham had a spectacular time, including making pasta by hand! My mom usually joins us on those vacations and Beckham would not have it any other way. Our next adventure is definitely in the works and we cannot wait to include our newest addition.
In closing, I would also like you to know that regardless of what lies in the future, if you were to pick us as your adoptive family, I can assure you that this child and their well-being will be my first and most important focus. I will also ensure that he/she always knows that you love them and made this choice for them.
Again, I thank you for taking the time to look through this book and getting to know me. I would love to be chosen to give your child a loving and happy home.
