Our Lifestyle

Enjoying a College Football Game

Balance is our primary goal. We live our lives fully committed to our careers, but also make sure that we enjoy time together and time with our loved ones (family and friends).

When not at work, we enjoy the simple things. We like to cook out and enjoy the outdoors, watch movies, do yard work, go antique shopping, attend concerts, and have game night with friends. Travis enjoys golfing as much as possible and fly fishing when he can. Martha is always crafting or painting, and refinishing older furniture. When Martha is crafting, there is usually some glue or paint on a dog or piece of furniture.

We try to attend as many of our friend's children's events as we can — swim lessons, high school football games, plays, etc. We also enjoy having everybody over for a cookout. We are very grateful for the people in our lives and make an effort to engage with them and build memories. This is what matters most to us.

We think this quote sums up our lives together-"Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them."

Cultural Diversity

Travis Loving on a Friend's Baby

We are committed to helping our child learn about and embrace their culture. We want the child's birth heritage to be central to their identity, and sense of self. In addition to learning about their own heritage, we will encourage our child to learn about other's cultural backgrounds to help instill a sense of acceptance which is very important to us.

Charlotte is an inclusive city which supports diversity on many levels. There are many museums, festivals, and other cultural events through the year we enjoying attending. We will always make it a point to expose our child to each and every cultural experience available, not just their own, but of all cultures. We will raise our child to be a well-rounded, responsible, accepting human being. We would go on regular outings to museums, libraries, nature centers, cultural events, and volunteer as much as possible. A love of diversity and acceptance of cultural differences are values we would be sure to encourage and develop in our child.

Our Pups - Beau, Mable & Layla

Layla, Beau, Mable

Pets have always been a large part in our lives as children and as adults. Growing up, Martha had several dog — Honeybear, Beau, Patches, Fudge and Brownie. Travis' family had Kenny and Sophie — small dogs with big personalities!

When we first met, Martha had two dogs — Belle and Beau, which means beautiful and handsome in French. Sadly, Belle became ill and we had to say goodbye to her. For us, she was absolutely like a child and losing her was incredibly difficult.

Since then we have added two new fur-babies to our household, Mabel and Layla. Mabel was given up and placed in animal shelter in a nearby county. It has been especially heartwarming to see her transform from the state she was in, both physically and emotionally when we adopted her, until now. With a lot of love and patience, she is now happy and spunky (and a bit more chunky). Layla was rescued as a puppy and has brought a lot of energy to our little pack.

Dogs bring us so much joy and we want to pass that down to this child. Many times it's our own pets that offer us the most love and acceptance. They help us heal, help us find our way when we feel lost, and help us get through difficult times.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home - Yard of the Month!

We live in a wonderful community close to a larger metropolitan city. It is a decent sized neighborhood that is mostly made up of families and older adults. We have a large, fenced-in back yard that backs up to woods. There is plenty of room for a playground and camping out. We get excited thinking about a child running around in the back yard with our dogs!

There are four bedrooms and two and one half bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is more of a bonus room — we envision it becoming a play area for a child. There are a lot of great schools nearby.

We are close to both downtown Charlotte and Lake Norman. Charlotte has a lot of great options for children — Discovery Place always has a fun exhibit! Around Lake Norman, there are many parks and opportunities for hiking and boating.

Our Extended Families

Travis' Family

We come from different family backgrounds. Travis was born and raised, along with his three other siblings, in a suburb in north-central West Virginia. His mother and father are still married today, and now live in Indiana. The majority of Travis' family lives in Indiana, but a small number live in Utah. Every year we travel to Indiana for a huge family reunion with Travis' family. He has a large extended family, and they are very excited to have a new baby joining the family.

Martha's Family

Martha grew up as an only child in a suburb of Atlanta. Martha's mother recently passed away in April. Martha's father resides in Statesville, North Carolina. Martha's extended family lives in High Point and Boston. We regularly get together for family dinners and spend holidays together. Martha's aunts and uncles are very excited for us to adopt.

In addition to our extended families we also have a large group of friends in Charlotte who have become like family over the years. Our child will have a lot of adopted uncles, aunties and cousins from our very close group of friends. We spend our children's birthdays together, take vacations together, and enjoy many family events.

From Us to You

First and most importantly, thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential adoptive parents for your baby. Please know that we believe that you are brave and selfless for considering adoption. We are very grateful for the opportunity to bring a child into our lives and home.

We are a caring, loving, and stable couple. We have been together a total of six years, married four of those years. Our relationship is built upon trust, openness, laughter, and love. We want nothing more than to give all the love and opportunity in this world to a baby.

Martha's mother was her world. Losing her last spring shattered her heart, but it also filled her with hope and an abundance of love to give to a child. We so very much want to love, protect, and nurture a baby. We both have wonderful families, who taught us the importance of creating traditions, and enjoying time with one another — Christmas Eve dinners, yearly camping trips, and birthday celebrations. We understand just how precious life is. We want you to know that should you choose us, we will love your baby to the moon and back.

We are beyond excited to start the journey of parenthood. This baby will become our world. We have already started planning. We have many conversations about how to decorate the nursery, sharing the sleepless nights, his/her first Halloween costume, and future birthday parties. We want him or her to be a dreamer ­— astronaut, teacher, engineer or whatever he/she dreams ­— and want to give him/her every opportunity in the world.

We understand a big fear you may have will be what happens after the baby is born. It is very important to us that you are as involved in this child's life as you want to be. We promise to send you letters and pictures all along the way. If you want to create a book about your life and other family members, we would love to have it to share with your baby. We don't want you to feel isolated. We truly want you to feel included. You gave him/her the gift of life. Without you, none of this would be possible.

You are wise beyond your years. It takes an insightful and mature person to consider adoption. We have nothing but respect for you.

We appreciate the time you took to review our profile. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
