Becoming a foster and adoptive mom has been Lindsay's greatest dream and most important goal as far back as she can remember. Lindsay's family recalls her talking about adopting when she was about six years old––and her passion for children within the foster system has only grown. When she met Jordan, the person who would eventually become her spouse (way back in high school), she made it clear that this was how she would someday become a mom. Jordan must have thought it was a great idea as well, because they will be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary this year, and have become a family of six through foster care and adoption during that time!
After moving to Texas from her hometown of Anchorage, Alaska, Lindsay attended nursing school and went into pediatrics (which she says was an obvious choice for her). Lindsay went on to specialize in the area of acute inpatient rehabilitation, and is currently working toward earning her masters degree to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. She hopes to someday work in the field of mental health for pediatric patients who have suffered from trauma and neglect.
In her free time, Lindsay enjoys working in her big garden and taking care of all her family's many pets––which include dogs, cats, and chickens, as well as a hedgehog, chinchilla, rabbit, and even a tortoise! Lindsay's kiddos have a heart for rescuing animals, so each one has a special story, and they have built quite the petting zoo on their little piece of property. Someday Lindsay and her family would love to have goats and sheep and make their home into a real farm. When they aren’t going back and forth between kids’ track meets, baseball, basketball, and soccer games, Lindsay and her family love to make art, swim, travel, and spend time together. They are certainly busy, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
