State we live in: North Carolina

dear expectant mother

We know in our hearts, for you to even be reading this, you must have so many thoughts turning through your mind. We can reassure you of a couple of things.

Your child will be loved. Your child’s presence has been desired since 2008, when we first started dating and decided we both wanted to grow our family. Your child will have a lot of fun! We have two older children and three grandchildren whom we have helped raise, and we love to plan activities with them. We have movie nights, we take road trips, and we have a huge lake in our subdivision with plenty of sand for perfect sandcastles.

We will strive to raise your child so they will be kind, compassionate, and empathetic. We know it is cliché, but we will make sure your child knows they can be and do anything they put their minds to. We will make sure we provide your child with the tools necessary to take on any challenges that come their way.

The last, most important thing we want you to know is, we will make sure your child knows how much you love them. Your child will know about your ultimate sacrifice and the strength it took to make this decision. They will know how proud we are of you and how you made our dream a reality.

Your child will be loved. Your child’s presence has been desired since 2008, when we first started dating and decided we both wanted to grow our family. Your child will have a lot of fun!

About Us

We own a small transportation company in North Carolina, where Tracie runs operations and fleet maintenance and Lynsey heads administration and dispatch. We are a fun, loving, and loyal couple who appreciates warm laughs, so we can usually be found snuggling under a blanket and watching stand-up comedy together. We are also road buddies, so jumping in a car and heading out on an adventure is an every month occurrence in our household. If we aren’t dancing and making up songs with the grandkids in the living room, we are walking through the grocery store while trying to plan what meal we want to cook together next. Twelve years goes by fast when you get to spend it with your best friend!

Our Home

We live in a gated community located just 10 minutes away from local shopping centers, schools, and hospitals. Our home is located in a small cul-de-sac, with plenty of diverse neighbors. We have seven lakes with natural wooded areas that allow our family to feel close to nature. Our home has a screened-in back porch, where we like to entertain our friends and family. Our subdivision loves to throw annual holiday-themed celebrations, like Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas. We can’t wait to watch the fireworks or pass out candy with your little one!

Our Extended Family

Lynsey comes from a large family on both her mother and father’s sides of the family. With six aunts and uncles on her mother's side and 14 great-aunts and uncles on her father’s side, each gathering is large and full of catching up and reminiscing on past get-togethers. Every year we travel to Ohio to spend time with them for Easter. They can’t wait to meet your baby and give them their first Easter basket!

Tracie’s family is smaller, but the love they have for each other makes up for it. They come together every Christmas to exchange gifts, indulge in Tracie’s mother’s Southern cooking, and gather for her mother’s birthday, which is just two days after Christmas! Tracie’s family is excited about our decision to adopt and grow our small family.

What Led Us To Adoption

We both have experiences in which our parents opened their arms to different individuals who eventually became like our extended family, soon being referred to as auntie, uncle, or cousin.
After experiencing several unsuccessful attempts at trying to conceive on our own, we sat down and brought up the option of adoption since we both knew from firsthand experience that families can be created in so many ways. We have been planning and preparing for the next chapter of our lives ever since.
