Hi, we're Karen & Tracy. We think we have a pretty incredible love story! Our story began many years ago when we were high school sweethearts. Over the years since then, life experiences have brought us back to each other, and in August of 2018 we will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. It has been quite a journey that led us to adoption, and we are filled with hope for when we can be parents.

More About Our Family

Both of us really enjoy traveling to new places. Being able to see oceans, mountains, forests, and wildlife together is always a cool experience to share. We both also love music, and one of our favorite things to do is going to concerts. We also enjoy watching hockey, and have had season tickets to the Iowa Wild for 5 years. We have a dog named Molly. She's almost 6 years old and pretty spoiled. We love spending time with her! When it's nice out, we enjoy playing and hanging out with her in our backyard. When she's inside, she's usually in our laps or sleeping on our bed. Her tail rarely stops wagging and we know she will love having a child in our home someday. Although our families are small, we also have a close-knit group of friends that make us feel surrounded with love and support. We truly consider these friends as family members, and we celebrate many holidays and birthdays together. In 2014, Karen was diagnosed with breast cancer. Tracy was right by Karen's side every step of the way as she went through multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments. In 2015, Karen's doctors told her she was "cancer free" and would go on to live a long healthy life. The journey to surviving cancer at such a young age was a difficult time, yet it gave us a powerful perspective. We understand and value what truly are the most important things in life. We grew closer together and our marriage is even stronger. Our dream to share our love as parents and our commitment to our future continues to grow each day.
