dear expectant mother

You are such a brave, strong, and thoughtful woman to consider adoption for your child. The bravery it takes to go through a pregnancy is so remarkable. The strength of conviction you must have to make such a difficult decision! Only someone so thoughtful could think of what is best for her unborn child, knowing him or her as only you can. We can’t imagine how difficult this decision must be for you.

We appreciate you so much for reading our profile and considering our family as a fit for your child. We are so thankful and want you to know you and your child are very much welcomed and wanted in our lives. If you choose us, we will take every day and opportunity to make sure your child knows how much they are appreciated, loved, and supported. We look forward to sharing our family traditions with them, seeing the world through their eyes, teaching them, and showing them the world. No matter who they are, what they become, or the decisions they make, we will always be in their corner cheering for them. We will make sure they know they are every bit as brave, strong, and thoughtful as their mother is.

You are such a brave, strong, and thoughtful woman to consider adoption for your child.

About Us

We met while training for our college jobs. We were friends for nearly a decade before we started dating. We have been married for three years and have two large dogs. Lynn is a biomedical engineer working in the research and development of medical devices and pharmaceuticals. She enjoys spending time with animals, gardening, woodworking, and cooking. Scott is a production operator for a medical device company. He enjoys reading, board games, and crafts. Together, we like to play games, travel, go geocaching, spend time outside, go to movies, and spend time with family. Scott has a son from a previous marriage who is in college. Scott would describe Lynn’s personality as intelligent, caring, reliable, and funny. Lynn would describe Scott’s personality as laid back, a good listener, loyal, and kind.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Tennessee, where Lynn works from home. We have a ten-year-old yellow Lab we adopted from rescue and a six-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback. We live across the street from a community duck pond, trail, and playground. We enjoy feeding the ducks that visit and watching them play. Our yard has become a nesting area for many ducklings, and we have enjoyed watching them grow. We are also very close to the Blue Ridge Mountains, which makes for amazing hiking and drives during the fall. We also enjoy taking long weekends to various beaches along the East Coast. We frequently visit family in Minnesota as well.

Our Extended Family

Lynn’s extended family is very large, with many half-siblings and step-siblings. All of them have children of their own or are starting to have children. Her parents were even foster parents for a short while and frequently took in friends of the family as children. Our family traditions involve big holidays, picnics, and road trips involving caravans as many of us will travel together when we can. Some of our best family times are when we have rented a large vacation home or houseboat. Cooking together and playing canasta are common for us.

Scott has one sister but many cousins. Although everyone is now spread across the country, they all enjoy getting together now and then and having a big family gathering. An important tradition in his family is family game night, where everyone and their friends get together to play various board games.

What Led Us To Adoption

We feel very blessed and excited to be pursuing adoption. A couple of people in our family have been blessed by the opportunities to adopt, and it has been such a wonderful and meaningful experience for all of them. We had infertility issues for a very long time, and when it became clear we would never be biological parents, we pursued alternatives. We were briefly a respite foster home and had a teenage foster daughter. We loved all the time we spent with those children and teens, and this led to us wanting to adopt a child of our own.
