We’re Lindsay and Jamie. We’ve been together for six years and married for three. We met in Washington, DC., and now live in Wisconsin with our two spirited black labs, Lexie and Raven, and opinionated cat, Helo. We are both passionate environmental advocates–Jamie fights climate change and Lindsay helps save wildlife around the planet–and love spending time outdoors hiking, kayaking and gardening. Jamie is a triathlete and this year became an Ironman finisher and Lindsay is a bookworm, often reading books about time travel, animals and space.
Before we even met, we had both decided we wanted to build our future family through adoption. Now, as we prepare to build our family together, we are excited to share with a child the values that we hold dear, especially as a nontraditional family: 1) There are all kinds of versions of family and the one uniting factor is love. 2) Happiness depends on a compassionate and strong spirit. 3) Life is better when your community is diverse, and when you give back. 4) We are at our best when we approach the world as a team.
