A Letter from Brice & Rachael
We are so grateful and excited to share a little bit about ourselves and our lives! We live in a quiet town in South Carolina, surrounded by family and friends. We have previously adopted our son, Maddox, who is 11 years old. We adopted him at the beginning of 2022, and we are thrilled to grow our family through adoption once more. We are excited to welcome your child into our home. As Christians, we will raise your child to love the Lord and others, have faith, and be kind, as we have begun doing with our son now. We are open to any level of contact that you are comfortable with such as pictures, letters, and yearly visits. Thank you for considering us!
We are college sweethearts who have been together since 2011 and married since 2015. We have experienced infertility and miscarriages but have remained faithful. We have chosen to adopt because we believe the Lord wants to grow our family in a way that is bigger and better than we ever could have imagined. As a couple, we love to spend time with our family at family dinners and on holidays. We love spending time with our son, our sweet nieces and nephews, and enjoying a good movie! We all love being outdoors, playing in the pool, playing soccer, and just spending time together. Any time we can laugh and have fun is a good time to us. We love traveling together, but we also enjoy a quiet Saturday cooking dinner or watching TV. We are excited to include your child in all of the fun and exciting parts of our lives!
Brice is the funniest and sweetest guy I know! That is what drew me to him first. He loves to take care of me and protect me, and I know he will do the same with our children. He loves to sing, fish, and play games in his free time. He and Maddox love doing father-son activities together, such as bike riding, fishing, and playing video games. Brice also loves when he can get out and grill dinners for us! He is a wonderful husband and father, and I know he is excited to share all of his interests with our next child as well.
Rachael is a very kind and caring person. She drew me to her through her actions of putting others before herself without being asked. Rachael loves to get out of the house and go on vacations, go shopping, and go to restaurants. Being a teacher, she’s excited to teach our children many things as they grow, like reading and writing. She and Maddox love spending time together on the way to and from work/school (Mom works at Maddox’s school!): singing, talking and praying together. They also love swimming in the pool across the street and playing games together. Most of all, she will teach our children how to love unconditionally and know right from wrong.
Our son, Maddox, was adopted in early 2022. He is 11 years old and acts SO much like Brice that most people don’t think he is adopted! He loves being outside, riding bikes with Dad, playing board and video games, reading, and singing. He is excited to be a big brother and teach his sibling how to read and play games. He says he wants to show him or her the love that we have shown to him since adoption!
We live very close to Brice’s entire family. He has a brother and a sister that have families of their own as well. We see them twice a week for Friday Night Dinners and Sunday Lunch after church. We attend church with most of his close and extended family. Rachael’s family lives about an hour away. We go and see them frequently, but especially during the holidays. Both families are beyond excited to welcome a new addition to the family.
In our home, we also have two sweet cats! Their names are Sasha and Kovu. They both love Maddox, and Sasha sleeps with him every night!
We live in a big 4-bedroom, 3 bathroom house with a garage, beautiful back porch, and big backyard. house right across the street from Brice’s parents and grandmother. Our neighborhood is very safe, and we love it. We live in a quiet town and are close to areas with restaurants, parks, shopping, and so much more! Our home has a spacious garage, a beautiful back porch, and a big backyard that we enjoy using to the fullest. Maddox and our next child have their own rooms, as well as an office/game room nearby. We already have a nursery ready and waiting for our sweet bundle of joy!
We like simple decorations except during the holidays when we love to decorate! We spend the most time in the kitchen and living room making memories!
We will love your son or daughter with all of our hearts. This is truly our heart’s desire.
We promise to teach your child to love everyone for what’s on the inside! We plan to raise them to never give up and keep the faith. We also plan to help them reach their dreams and support them in everything they hope to be and do! We look forward to making sure they know where they came from and embracing who they are and their adoption journey! We want a family that is full of love, laughter, and support, and for our child (yours and ours) to know that they are beautifully and wonderfully made!
