Thomas & Darcie

We have been planning adoption for the 15 years of our lives together. We have no doubt that our life together has lead us to the perfect place and time making this step towards completing our family. We were blessed beyond imagination to welcome our son 13 years ago but knew we wanted to be parents again. We will be honored to add a child to our loving, laughing, unconditional and comfy family through adoption.

Why We Chose Adoption

Our Family

We have known adoption would be how we completed our family since we met almost 16 years ago. We have many very close friends and families that have added to or completed their family by adoption. Also, we both come from families built from adoption. It is a blessing to know the acceptance and unconditional love that brought our families together for many generations.

We are fortunate to have been blessed with a wonderful son named Dalton 13 years ago. He is playful, ornery, caring, empathetic and very active. He is a fantastic athlete, musically talented and a hard worker. He plays football and lacrosse and loves mountain biking. If you asked him what he wanted to be when he grows up he would probably say "Youtuber" but he is fantastic with our animals. We wouldn't be surprised if he decided to become a veterinarian. Family barbecues often have Dalton and his cousins running around the house and yard playing games. This last summer, he and two of his cousins built a fort out of hay bales in their barn. We could barely get him to leave!

Dalton is so excited about our plans to adopt and will be a fantastic big brother!

Our Lifestyle

Darcie With Our Horses

Darcie works as a pediatric registered nurse at a children's hospital and Thomas works for city government while Dalton is currently in the 7th grade. We keep busy with hobbies, family time, sports and other extracurriculars. Darcie cares for, rides and trains our horses when she is not working. Thomas coaches youth football and lacrosse. Our son plays multiple sports and is involved in Boy Scouts. We like taking walks with our dogs around our neighborhood, spending time in the mountains and vacationing every chance we get. We make every day an adventure.

Life isn't all go, go, go with us though — we still like to relax individually and as a family. Summer evenings are usually filled with grilling and watching the sunset. Winter downtime is usually spent playing in the snow, watching movies, board games, and keeping warm by the fireplace.

An important part of our family and extended family is getting away on vacations to have quality, uninterrupted time to bond and get to know each other more and more. It is important to us to find ways to stay close.

Cultural Diversity

Some might think it's tough to talk about how you will deal with cultural diversity when it's something you have not had to deal with directly. Everyone has differing cultural dynamics. These can be socioeconomic, race, heritage, language, what country or part of the country you live, etc. We believe that everyone's cultural heritage is important and should be celebrated. It is very sad to us that there are people and cultures that believe their heritage/culture is better than others or that people who are not "like them" are less worthy. We are extremely fortunate that we were able to choose to live in an area where cultural diversity is accepted, celebrated and part of everyday life. We strongly believe that it is the responsibility of parents and caregivers to educate and prepare their children to be curious about diversity and culture while maintaining respect, acceptance and love for everyone regardless of their differences. We believe that it is important to celebrate culture at the same time as empowering a child to be aware and knowledgeable of cultural diversity as they navigate through their life.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in a small subdivision about 15 minutes North of Colorado Springs. We have three community parks within walking distance and many hiking trails. The subdivision hosts annual summer picnics and multiple other events throughout the year focused on bringing families together. We are a close drive to schools, YMCA, youth and child sports and activities.

Pikes Peak From Our Back Deck

Our home sits tucked away in trees and opens up to five acres of open pasture of gentle rolling hills with a fantastic view of Pikes Peak. We have four bedrooms and three bathrooms with a nursery room right next to the master bedroom on the main level. We love the kitchen and entertaining room for gathering around the stone fireplace and a wall of windows that face the entire front range of the Rocky Mountains. We also have a basement for fun and relaxation with a large TV room, another master suite and spare bedroom. Our home has a very large backyard that is big enough to play any sport, enjoy the views, play ball with the dogs, take the four-wheeler for a drive or ride the horses.

Our Extended Families

Family Reunion

Family is very important to us. We have weekly family gatherings and also get together for all of the holidays. All of our siblings come with the many nieces and nephews with ages ranging 2 years to 21 years. Depending on the weather, we mostly are outside in the barn with the animals, playing in the water, working on a garden project or building something. If inside we are playing games, talking about our favorite memories or cooking. Sometimes the older boys will play video games in the basement and make noise. Regardless of the occasion/weather, we are laughing until exhaustion.

With Darcie's Mom & Nephew

We also vacation with our siblings and their children as well as our parents. We have gone to Europe with Darcie's mom (Granny), the beach with all of Darcie's nieces and nephews many times, Texas to visit Thomas's Grandma Jackie with all of his siblings and parents and frequent shorter trips to a water park or event with siblings. Last summer we went fishing, rode four wheelers with about 40 of Thomas's extended family from around the country at the family cabin and ranch for the annual family reunion.

Everyone from our immediate family are excited and cannot wait to for us to bring another child into our lives and are waiting to help in any way necessary.

From Us to You

Our names are Darcie and Thomas (or "T.Scott" by family and friends). Thank you for taking the time to read this letter to you. It is a difficult letter to write. How do you write a letter to someone you have never met, yet know that they have stolen your heart? There are so many words that come to mind and so many things that we want to tell you about us. We cannot imagine what you are thinking, what you are going through and what you want to know. Our hearts break with you as you make a life-changing decision for you and your child. We are humbled by your courage and strength to make the decision to consider adoption for your baby.

We are ready to share with you our most honest thoughts about "us," our life together, and the hopes and dreams we have of adding to our family through adoption. Our life together started almost 16 years ago when we meet through mutual friends at a birthday party. We have so much love to share. We have a strong, honest, caring relationship that both respect nature and value our community, family and friends. While we take life very seriously, we also make it a priority to have fun and travel as much as possible. It is not uncommon in our family to be silly and sometimes goofy to make each other laugh. It is very normal for us to use funny quotes from movies as a response to a discussion or for one of us to break out a random dance move or impersonation to make each other laugh. We are already parents, so we know that words cannot express the love between parents and their child. We have an amazing 13-year-old son that is full of energy, caring and funny, but most of all, he can't wait to be a big brother. He has always wanted a sibling to entertain and protect. He can certainly keep his little cousins laughing and safe.

As you face this difficult decision, please know that you are covered in prayer and love by two strangers that would be honored to meet you and your little one. We promise that our home will be filled with love and laughter and you will always have a place in our hearts and family. You can be assured that the gift you give will never be taken for granted and they will know they have always been wanted and loved. Should you choose us to raise your child, you can be assured that they will have a happy, fulfilling life and the world will be theirs to explore. If you choose, we would be fortunate to be part of this journey with you both through the tears and into the years of joy. We would love to talk with you about your hopes and dreams for the future. We are open to keeping in contact throughout your pregnancy and through the rest of our lives. We would love to stay in contact through emails, pictures, phone calls and future visits. We hope you know that you have chosen a life that where your baby will be regarded as the biggest blessing and cherished every day. Thank you for taking a peek into our lives.

With Love,

Thomas & Darcie
