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. We admire the strength of conviction you must have to make such a difficult decision. We want to work with you in whichever capacity you need as you and your child go through this journey. Together we can make a beautiful life for your baby.

We appreciate you so much for reading our profile and considering us as a family for your child. We want you to know you and your child are very much welcome 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. They will know they are our first and most precious priority.

We look forward to sharing our family traditions with them, seeing the world through their eyes, teaching them, and showing them the world. We also want to share things that are important to you for them to experience. No matter who they are, who 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.

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.

About Us

We met at our college jobs and were friends for nearly a decade before we started dating. We have been married for three years now. Lynn is a biomedical engineer working in vascular medical devices. She enjoys spending time with animals, gardening, woodworking, and cooking. Scott is a production operator for a pharmaceutical 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. We have a 27-year-old son (from a previous marriage) who lives in Minnesota and a 17-year-old foster daughter still at home. Scott would describe Lynn as intelligent, caring, reliable, and funny. Lynn would describe Scott as laidback, 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 rescued and a six-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback. Our foster daughter has a four-year-old American bulldog. We live across the street from a community duck pond, trail, and playground. We enjoy feeding the ducks 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 spending long weekends at beaches along the East Coast.

Our Extended Family

Lynn’s extended family is very large, with many half-siblings and step-siblings. Most of them have children of their own. Her 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 memories are of when we have rented a large vacation home or houseboat. Cooking together and playing canasta are a big part of the fun.

Scott has only 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 board games.

What Led Us To Adoption

We feel very blessed and excited to be pursuing adoption. A couple family members have been blessed by adoption, 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 together, we pursued alternatives. We are currently a foster home and have provided respite care for other foster families. We currently have a teenage foster daughter staying with us. We love all the time we spent with those children and teens, and this led to us wanting to adopt a child of our own.
