Leisure Time

Climbing in France

In our leisure time we love to rock climb, hike, and travel. We often plan our vacations around beautiful international and national climbing destinations (Spain and Hawaii are next on our list for climbing!). We enjoy playing board games, like Scrabble and Ticket to Ride, with family and friends and hosting movie nights. We like going to concerts and trying new restaurants. Tracy loves reading (especially sci-fi and mysteries), photography and playing music with friends. Spencer enjoys baking and making food for friends and coworkers. We absolutely love playing football and tennis with our nephews and spending time storytelling and laughing with family. We’re also passionate about supporting and volunteering at animal shelters, especially the two we adopted our cats through.

We look forward to sharing all of these activities with a child and also supporting any activity they’re interested in trying. We also look forward to picking apples with them in the fall. Picking pumpkins and trick or treating on Halloween. Making cakes and pies for the holidays. Opening presents Christmas morning. Grilling with friends and family during the summer. Taking trips to the lakes and beaches near us. And so much more!

Your Cats, Squid and Vincent

We both grew up with family pets; Tracy always had cats and Spencer always had dogs. All of our family pets were always adopted and we became passionate about providing homes for animals in need. Our pets growing up and current pets have brought so much joy into our lives. They are truly members of our family. We love how they each have their own distinct personality. Squid loves to sit on laps and bathe in sun spots. Vincent loves to play with toys and be held/carried around. He also loves to keep Spencer company when he’s working from home and joins many video meetings. We love being able to provide a safe and loving home for them. We can’t imagine life without them!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Spencer about Tracy: I love that Tracy is so passionate, creative, driven, and how she goes above and beyond to make those around her comfortable and have a good time. She is incredibly inspiring and always brings joy and good energy to the communities she is in. She excels at making connections with people by really seeing and appreciating who they are and making them feel comfortable. Tracy has such a caring soul that shows up in the dynamics she has with our nephews, family, friends, and cats. She is very good at lighting a fire inside people to help them pursue their own goals and truly wants the best for everyone she cares about. On top of all of that she is so funny too! You can always tell where she is from the sound of laughter. I know she will make an incredible mother from the way she so intensely cares for our friends and family.

Tracy about Spencer: I love that Spencer is so supportive, hardworking, adventurous, fun and that he always prioritizes family and friends. I love how much we laugh together, inspire each other and that we can work through anything. I admire his ability to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds. Watching him play tennis with the nephews, read bedtime stories to our friends’ kids , bake bread for our families, friends and neighbors and even do little things like make me breakfast everyday shows how much he values people and his community. I know he will make an amazing father because of his values and qualities!

Our Extended Families

Spencer's Family

Our families are very important to us! Tracy loves playing music with her parents. Her parents play in a classic rock cover band and whenever Tracy attends one of their shows she’ll usually sit in on drums for a few songs. Her dad plays guitar and sings. Her mom plays piano and bass. Her brother also enjoys music and plays piano. Growing up there was always a lot of music in her home and she has great memories of going to all types of concerts with her family (rock, blues, country, metal, classical, pop punk). We look forward to sharing our love of music with a child. Both of our families also enjoy playing card and board games together. Spencer’s brother and brother’s wife love playing Clue. The nephews love playing Uno. Tracy’s family has a holiday tradition of playing cribbage. Both of our families also cook together for the holidays. Tracy loves baking cookies. Growing up her mom would bake cookies every Sunday night and she can’t wait to share that tradition with a child. Tracy’s family also enjoys hiking. As a family they would often go on hikes together and spend time in nature. Hiking is still a part of our lives and something we also enjoy doing with Spencer’s brother, his brother’s wife and the nephews. We love playing sports with our nephews! Whenever we get together we play football, tennis and rock climb. Spencer also has a tradition of building Legos during the holidays with nephews.

Tracy's Parents

Our House and Neighborhood


Massachusetts - We live in a family oriented neighborhood with children of all ages near a major city. Our neighborhood is filled with parks, great schools, and beautiful bike paths. There are movie theaters, diverse restaurants, museums, libraries, and music venues (we love live music!). Nearby we have indoor and outdoor swimming areas, ice skating rinks, an aquarium, and hiking trails. There are frequent festivals for art, food, and music from many different cultures. There are all different clubs for kids as well as immersive language programs. We value learning about and appreciating different cultures and feel lucky to live in a diverse area with so much opportunity. We look forward to taking our child on all kinds of adventures in our area.

Our Home

Our home is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom, open floor plan with a beautiful living room, dining room, study/office, kitchen, music room, nursery and outdoor deck (we love to grill during the summer!). We have two amazing adopted indoor cats named Squid and Vincent who love people (and food!). We also love plants and have many inside our home and surrounding it. Our home is full of music, cooking and laughter. Spencer’s favorite room is the kitchen where he bakes bread and Tracy’s is the music room where she likes to drum.

From Us to You

Thank you so much for considering us and taking the time to view our profile. We can’t even begin to imagine how difficult this process is for you. We are so incredibly grateful for the adoption process and would be honored to provide a loving home full of laughter and support for your child.

We’ve been together for 8 years and have been married for 6 of those years. We met on an online dating site and immediately connected over our love for books, movies, music, nature, traveling, science, nerdy art, and video and board games. We quickly learned that we share the same values like family, community, communication and personal growth. Our relationship is full of love and laughter. There are so many things we love doing with family and friends, like hosting movie and game nights, hosting dinners, playing football with the nephews, and going on vacations together. Tracy is a drummer and loves playing music with friends and family. Sometimes she even plays shows with her parents’ classic rock cover band. Spencer loves playing tennis and video games, like Pokemon, with his brother and nephews, and cooking with family and friends. We also love attending concerts, hiking nearby nature trails, rock climbing at our local climbing gym and in outdoor parks near us, traveling (Spain and New Zealand are next on our list!), trying new restaurants or staying home and trying new recipes. Sharing new experiences together and with family and friends brings so much joy to our lives. It strengthens our bond with each other and with our community. We’re also passionate about supporting animal shelters and have two amazing adopted cats (Squid and Vincent) who are great with people, love to cuddle and make us laugh every day.

We would love to share all of these wonderful experiences with a child and look forward to all of the new experiences a child will bring into our lives. We are committed to creating an open, loving, and compassionate space for our child. Teaching our child and learning from our child is something we can’t wait to experience. We want to be there for all of the ups and downs, the joyful moments and difficult moments. When challenges present themselves we will be there to help our child through them. We will always be patient and respectful. Our child will be part of a community that includes other adopted children and that fosters a positive, supportive and safe environment. Our families and friends are also so excited to welcome our child into their lives.

We look forward to sending you pictures and updates and making this process as comfortable for you as possible. We value communication and openness, but we are also understanding and would never pressure you to communicate more than you wanted. It is incredibly important to us that you feel confident your child is in a loving and supportive home and that you have the opportunity to stay connected to them. We will do everything we can to reassure you and help with this difficult and, I can imagine, scary process. We are committed to helping you and your child.

Again, thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile! I can imagine this is an overwhelmingly hard decision. Please know that to us adoption is a blessing and that we are eternally grateful for the opportunity to create an amazing connection with you and your child. We have so much love to give and laughter to share. Thank you!
