Grateful, Hopeful and Ready!

We’ve been thinking about you and and the journey that you are on. We have been praying for you and your baby for over a year now--particularly on Sundays, when we walk and pray. We hope that you will experience peace throughout this process, which likely will be a mixed emotional experience for you.

Before we say anything, it’s important for us to share with you that love—the God who is Love, the love we've received from our families, and the love we’ve discovered for each other—is why we want to adopt. Our love, like this world, isn’t perfect, but it’s real, growing, secure and life-giving. We believe this kind of love could make a safe and welcoming space for your little one.

We see adoption as a beautiful reflection of God’s love in choosing us. Our commitment to you is that your little one will know that they are loved--by God, by us and by so very many others. Thank you for considering our call to raise your child in this love as part of our family.

Gratefully, Duke & Grace

Who We Are

We met, as you do these days, online. Duke purchased a subscription to e-Harmony on April 13, 2017. Six months later, on October 1, we were matched. Grace saw Duke’s profile and sent him a wink…and it didn’t take long for Duke to respond with a “Boston?!” (He was living in South Carolina at the time.) We emailed, called, and a few short weeks later Duke traveled to Boston to meet Grace on October 27. Why do we make a point of naming all these dates? Well, April 13 is Grace’s birthday. October 1 is Duke’s birthday. And October 27 is the anniversary of Duke’s parents! While these “coincidences” certainly seemed in our favor, it was what we saw in each other (deep faith, compassion, fun, kindness, and a commitment to loving all people) that confirmed we were ready to commit to each other for the rest of our lives. So on October 13, 2018, we celebrated the beginning of our family.

Adoption Diary

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is one of the hardest days of the year for me. My empty arms ache even more. I’m so grateful for my wonderful mom and all the love that she gave me, that she continues to give. I want so much to be the kind of mother that she is. One that never leaves you doubting how very much she loves you. One day I hope that Mother’s Day will be about my gratitude for her. And also about our own journey of love with our own little one.
