Trevor & Stacy
We want to thank you for taking the time to view our profile and learn more about us. We cannot imagine the journey that you have been on, but know that your strength and compassion has led us to you. We are a family that loves together, laughs together and has grieved together. We would be honored and blessed to share our love with your child.
Our lifestyle can be summed up in one word ... Family. We strive every day to make each day be filled with love and spending time with each other. We always eat dinner together every evening and make it a point to do so, no matter what. We believe that spending that time eating and sharing what we did that day with each other is important to stay connected. Life can get busy and these are the things that we find very important. We love to have friends over and play board games and share meals together as well. Our friends have become our family and we want to pass the importance of family and friends to our children. We feel like we make a fairly good effort at doing so. We also like hanging out in the evenings after dinner and play a board game or watch a movie/TV show that we all can enjoy together.
We are blessed to have four children. Three are here on Earth and one is our angel who left us too soon at the age of 8.
Liam passed away from complications of Leukemia in 2016. We have Declan, who is 9, and loves to play all kinds of sports and likes anything Pokemon. Lorelei, who is 5, loves to dance, try cartwheels and do anything that has to do with arts and crafts. Madeline, who is Trevor's daughter from a previous relationship, just turned 22 and is graduating from college this Spring and going on to Physical Therapy School.
Our kids have been the most amazing things that have happened to us. We love being able to play at the park, read books with each other or just hang out at the dinner table discussing our crazy day. It is important for us to always stay connected to each other and be able to talk about anything. They are all very excited to share this connection with another child and are looking forward to loving another sibling.
Adoption in Our Lives
We have both been affected by adoption through having friends that we know who have been adopted and who have adopted. Stacy had a friend with whom she taught with who was adopted at birth. Within the last year, she met her birth mother and things have been amazing for her and her whole family, including the mother that adopted her. Also, we both have mutual friends that adopted a baby who has been in an open adoption who has always been told she was adopted and knew her birth mother. This was a beautiful thing to watch throughout the years. We feel that having mutual respect and openness for the birth parents who choose us to be the parents of their child is very important for not only the child, but for all involved. We understand that putting ourselves in the birth parents shoes and realizing that this is a very difficult and selfless decision is the only way we can be truly the best parents to this child.
Our House and Neighborhood
Three years ago we moved from the Midwest to the South due to a job opportunity for Trevor. We were very nervous about leaving our home. Shortly after we arrived to our new house we started building a new village and felt a strong sense of community. Our kids quickly made new friends at their school and we are always finding something to do with other families. We especially love entertaining and having our friends come over for meals and games.
Our house is in a lovely neighborhood with lots of kids to play with. We have five bedrooms and four baths, but our favorite part of the house is the main living area where the kitchen and living room are wide open. While we are getting meals ready we can also have the kids sit at the big island in the kitchen and do homework or help them with an art activity. The other favorite part of our house is our big driveway where the kids love to play basketball or do sidewalk chalk art.
Our big backyard has a swing set and the kids love to play fetch with our two dogs, Amos and Duffy.
There are many parks around, yet we have our favorites we like to visit often. We also have a neighborhood pool that we can enjoy in the spring and summer.
Our Extended Families
Our families are so important to the both of us. Not a day goes by when we haven't texted someone outside of the two of us just to check in on them. Even though we recently had to relocate further away from our families, distance hasn't stopped us from our strong connection to each other. We travel to them and they travel to us quite often. It is important to us to make sure that our children know their extended family and continue making memories with them.
We have many traditions on both sides that we do each year. For example, Trevor's family has a lake house that we love to go to over the summers. We swim and boat and just enjoy each other's company. On Stacy's side, we love to get together and cook and play games and spend a lot of quality time laughing and having fun.
Our family is unique because even though we both came from divorced parents, we both value the bond that we can create for all families to be united for the children and the love that they have for them. We don't have any nieces or nephews yet, but we have a ton of cousins on Trevor's side that our kids get to see over holidays and other family gatherings.
Both sides of our families are extremely supportive of our choice to adopt. They are ready to welcome another child into our big, beautiful family and so are we!
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us and our family. We understand that this is a very difficult and emotional time in your lives. Our hope is that you feel supported in whatever your adoption plan might be.
We met at a baseball game and started dating soon afterwards at a friend's wedding. Then a couple of years later in 2006, we were married. Our lives have been blessed and we have a great life together. Stacy has been in education for over 17 years and Trevor has been working in the telecom business for the same amount of time. Our family is unique in that we have Trevor's daughter, Madeline, who has been in Stacy's life since she was in Kindergarten. We also have had three biological children together. We have Declan who is 9, Lorelei who is 5, and Liam who is our angel. Liam passed away in 2016 due to complications with chemotherapy. We have gone through much grief and yet we know that we have so much more love to give. Our hopes to adopt one day was always in our hearts even before losing Liam. We waited until almost 3 years after his passing to really reflect on whether it was the right time and we know that it is.
Please know that your child will be welcomed into our big, beautiful, and loving family. We want you to know that your child will be loved unconditionally and grow up in a safe and stable environment. We want to offer all of our children life-long opportunities to explore things that they are interested in and continue to grow as individuals.
Not only will they have our main family as a support system, but we have a wonderful and loving extended family as well. We both find it very important for our kids to know their grandparents as well as aunts, uncles and cousins. We see them often and they look forward to many gatherings that will include your child. Our families are both extremely excited and supportive of our decision to adopt.
We delight in the role you will play, whatever you choose for that to be. You are significant to us and ALWAYS will be. We are happy to send email updates, with pictures and stories, as well as letters with keepsakes that mark milestones in your child's life. We are open to making arrangements for visits when the time is right. We know that you are making a very brave decision and we will always respect you for your choice.
Thank you for considering us as potential parents for your child. We look forward to expanding our family and we will provide all the love, devotion and support that any child or parent could ask for. We know that you have an extremely difficult decision ahead of you and you will be in our prayers as you are guided through this journey.
With love and respect,
Trevor & Stacy
