Legacy Adoption Services

Joseph & Lucy

Hi, we are Joseph, Lucy and Kaitlyn!



I’m glad our paths have crossed, and we have this time together.  We have been married for 16 years and have one biological daughter, Kaitlyn. We have wanted more children for several years and have chosen adoption to grow our family.  Adoption has given us hope in fulfilling our dream for our family legacy. Because you have chosen life, you will be blessing a family with an immeasurable gift. We are following God’s direction for our lives and know that we will be blessed with an addition to our family.  Our hearts and home are ready for the next chapter in our lives!

God bless you,

Joseph and Lucy

A Little About Us

Joseph

Joseph is hardworking, fun-loving and enjoys the great outdoors.  He is the first one to suggest a nature walk, going to the local gardens, the park or just getting out and doing something.  He loves a full calendar and is happiest when busiest. Even “downtime” is structured with activities. He has a real gift with children and is always willing to go on outings with younger cousins, nieces and nephews.  Our daughter loves to play board games, video games, watch TV or go to the movies with him. She always looks forward to “Father-Daughter” time. He has a gentle way with kids and his leading and loving as a father make such a deep impact on our family. This is his legacy.  

Lucy

Lucy has a caring, giving, and selfless vision for our family.  She knows what is needed and doesn’t hesitate to support us in all the dimensions of family life.  Her love for her family comes through in everything, whether it’s celebrating holidays, visiting friends and family, hanging out in the backyard, relaxing at home, or going out to dinner.  Her personal touch makes all the difference and reminds us of how much love we share in this family. She follows God’s voice as He directs her to serve her family and to serve in the community.  Giving generously is her legacy.

Kaitlyn

Parenting is the center of our home.  We are privileged to have Kaitlyn as our daughter.  She is smart, funny, talented and very out-going. She is always busy, busy, busy! Dance is her main year-round sport.  She also loves gymnastics, art, baking, and hanging out with friends. Kaitlyn enjoys playing with younger cousins and her friends’ younger siblings.  She has a sweet spirit and will be a great role-model as an older sister!

The Life We Live

“There is hardly anything more important and vital to every child than family. Girls and boys require careful and loving parents who will share their love, knowledge, and experience with them. Moreover, family is paramount to grownups too. One can live and work alone, but it is impossible to become a self-sufficient person without family.” This is a quote from a family blog I recently read, and it captures the guiding philosophy of our home life beautifully.   We are fortunate to have a good support system of friends, immediate family and extended family. It is such a blessing to know that there are people praying for you on a regular basis. This is the non-judgmental, accepting, and loving environment we have for our family and our daughter has been raised in this nurturing, caring, faith-based value system. Our favorite things to do as a family are: spending time together, grilling out, going out with friends, being out in nature, and going to the beach.  We believe in building dreams one day at a time, so home is a place that allows us to relax, re-energize, and re-charge. We are blessed and believe that God has a path for us filled with blessings still to come.

How we met:

Joseph and I met during a church nature walk.  Although we were part of the same group of friends, we hadn’t officially been introduced to each other.  After a few months we started dating. Most of our time together centered around church functions as we were both very involved in our local church.  We got engaged in 2001 and were married in 2002. During our 16 years of marriage, we have learned to love by action, not just words.

Where we live:

Our home is in a beautiful neighborhood in North Texas.  We are fortunate to be close to the lake, parks, ranches and downtown.  We can go to the gardens, the zoo, museums, water parks, sports events or simply enjoy our own backyard. We enjoy hosting parties and intimate dinners with friends.   We have one of the best school districts in the state!
