Scott & Lyndsey
We are honored that you are reading our profile and hope that this glimpse into our lives will bring you joy and comfort. We believe that our strong, loving relationship is a solid foundation to raise a family. We are a fun, giving couple with a lot of love to share. We are praying for your journey and feel blessed to have the opportunity to become parents through adoption.
What It Means to Become Parents
Becoming parents is something that we have dreamed about for a long time. We have always wanted children and have found in the last few years that God's plan for us to be parents may not involve biological children. We have been very open to many paths and feel confident that adoption will lead us to starting our family.
We are looking forward to every stage in this child's life. The newborn stage of bonding by snuggling and reading stories is something Lyndsey is longing for. Scott loves the active stages of smiles and high fives. We will both be very involved every step of the way and make such a great team. We have a lot of experience caring for children, but know that we will continue to learn so many new things.
Parenting will be a big responsibility and we are prepared for the journey. We have a wonderful support system full of unconditional love. We both come from childhoods built on firm foundations and solid values. We cannot wait to watch this child grow and can assure you that we will be there for all of the challenges that may come our way and for all of the happy times ahead.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Lyndsey About Scott: I love Scott's sense of humor and his ability to make situations lighter and more fun. I admire his adventurous side and ability to want to try new things. I know that Scott will make a wonderful father. The way he interacts with children puts a smile on my face. Whether it is piggy back rides, Nerf gun battles, or outdoor activities; Scott is always involved. I adore that he loves animals. He is so sweet with our dog and cat and enjoys spoiling them with lots of treats and affection. Scott is a giver. He likes to see a difference made in the lives of others and is involved in local children's charities.
Scott About Lyndsey: I love that Lyndsey cares about animals and that we enjoy the same hobbies. I admire that she is a hard-worker; determined to get things done. She is great with children and always puts the needs of others before her own. She loves crafting and teaching our nieces and nephews new things. She has such a big heart and I know that she will be a wonderful mother. Lyndsey's strong faith and ability to stay positive are admirable traits. She will do everything possible to make sure a child is loved at all times.
From the very beginning, we will inform, educate, and celebrate this child and their story. We want to help them discover who they are in an environment of unconditional love. It is exciting to know that this child will make our family's story complete. When they have questions, we will seek to have the answers. Reading children's books and using our lifebook are ways that we plan to discuss adoption. Sharing memories of our first moments as a family and how long we waited for their precious arrival are much anticipated conversations. They will be supported and loved, knowing that adoption is what gave our family a beginning. This child will know that the strength and courage of the birth family is the act of love that brought us together. We look forward to celebrating who they are as a child and helping them grow through every stage in life.
Our House and Neighborhood
We love where we live! We have 20 acres with a large stocked pond. It is so much fun to catch fish on our property. Deer and turkeys are frequently seen as well as ducks and geese on our pond. Our dog, Stormy, has many adventures and we cannot wait to share this home with a child. Nieces and nephews enjoy coming to visit us. Whether it's a day filled with fishing, catching frogs and crawdads or playing in the stream; we have a great time!
Neighbors are nearby and they are all wonderful people. We feel safe and know that they are there for us when needed. We enjoy visiting our neighbors and they all have sweet dogs Stormy adores. They are active people that enjoy the outdoors, just like us.
It is a blessing to live in the Midwest where family is a focus. Living in a rural area where we can be submersed in nature is ideal. It is also nice just being 10 minutes from the city. Many parks, a zoo, shopping and restaurants all within 30 minutes of us. Major lakes are within an hour and many rivers are just minutes from our home. The school system where we live is highly rated and is large enough to offer many opportunities and activities.
Our Extended Families
We come from close families who are very loving and supportive. Both of our parents are looking forward to welcoming more grandchildren. We love being Aunt and Uncle to our 10 nieces and nephews and are involved in their lives. We are blessed to travel often with family and look forward to future adventures as parents. Outdoor activities at the lake and beach are extra special.
We love spending holidays with our families and each have special traditions. White elephant or "Grab Bag" gifting at Christmas is always a fun time. Biscuits and chocolate gravy on Christmas morning is another favorite tradition. The 4th of July is a big celebration of grilling, boating, and watching fireworks on the lake. We are excited to share all of these experiences with this child.
Lyndsey has one brother and Scott has two sisters. All of our siblings are raising young families, so the opportunity for a child to be close to cousins is wonderful. Living near family and friends gives us lots of special time together.
Everyone is so excited for us to become parents and fully support our adoption plan. They cannot wait to be part of this child's life!
From Us to You
Words cannot fully express how grateful we are that you are considering adoption. We can't imagine how you must be feeling, but we admire your strength and courage. "God doesn't give the hardest battles to his toughest soldiers, he creates the toughest soldiers through life's hardest battles."
We met over eight years ago on a blind date and have been married since 2012. Our relationship is based on love and understanding. We can honestly say that we are great friends! Lyndsey loves that Scott is calm and steady, but also the funny one. Scott loves that Lyndsey is sweet and patient, but also has an adventurous side. We both have fond childhood memories and come from stable, supportive families. Growing up loving the outdoors is a passion that will continue as we become parents.
We have been able to travel to many different places, with New Zealand, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean being a few of our favorites. Our heart for adventure and experiencing different cultures is longing to be enjoyed with your child. Lyndsey has dreams to be more involved with mission work and Scott has a heart for giving. It feels good to help others and to make a difference.
We have strong values and believe in the importance of raising a child in church and teaching them of God's love. We will always have unconditional love for your child and will provide a safe, stable home. Emotional and financial support will allow the pursuit of dreams.
Lyndsey is a Registered Nurse and worked in Orthopedics for nine years. Although she misses her patients and co-workers, she is looking forward to this new chapter. We feel blessed that Lyndsey can stay home and focus on family. Lyndsey is maternal and nurturing. She has always wanted to be a mother and feels that her compassionate heart will help her raise a child to respect and love others.
Scott is a Property Manager and enjoys working with members of his family. He worked for the family business in window manufacturing for over 10 years before landing in his current role. Scott is a hard-worker and has so many great life skills. He enjoys wood-working projects and anything outdoors. Scott will have so much to teach a child and looks forward to watching them grow. He will be the dad at the t-ball games or dance recitals. He will be there to teach them how to hunt safely and will help them catch their first fish. Scott will be involved, every step of the way.
Our hearts, families, and community are ready to provide a life full of love, devotion, education, and wonder to your child. We will send pictures and letters that will provide updates and mark milestones. We are also open to e-mail exchange, if desired. We are humbled that you would consider us as parents for your child and will be praying for you and your decision.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Scott & Lyndsey
