Lance grew up in a small town in central Kentucky. He has two older sisters and his
parents have been married for 44 years. Lance is an uncle to two nieces, Madison &
Lauren. Lance is a big family man! He talks to his parents daily and works with his dad
to run the cattle farm. Lance enjoys being outside, being at the farm, grilling delicious
steaks, going to the lake, fishing, watching football, and spending time with his family.
Sports are a big part of his life. Lance played football in high school, and now enjoys
coaching Henry and his youth football team. After high school, Lance went to college at
University of Kentucky and received a degree in Civil Engineering.
Margaret also grew up in the same small town as Lance! While in high school, Margaret
played basketball, enjoyed spending time with friends, and going to football games on
Friday nights! Margaret continued onto Western Kentucky University where she finished
with a degree in Exceptional Education for grades K-12. Now she works as a Special
Education teacher for students with learning and behavior disorders. Margaret has
always had a love for children, not only at work, but for her nieces as well. Margaret is a
proud aunt to 2 nieces, Ellie & Charlotte. Margaret enjoys listening to audiobooks, going
to the lake, traveling, and watching a movie on the couch at home with popcorn!
We originally met in high school and were just friends at first. In high school, Lance was
one year older than Margaret therefore time continued to pass, and they remained
mutual friends. Fast forward to a year later, we were attending two different colleges–on
opposite ends of the state– and got set up by a mutual friend through a telephone call.
After that phone call things were never the same, and then that summer while both of us
were living back home from college our relationship went into full swing. We continued
our long-distance relationship when we went back to college that Fall. We made it
through with many trips back and forth to see each other!
With both finishing up college and ready to move onto the next step in life, Lance
surprised Margaret with a proposal surrounded by our family and friends to celebrate.
Soon after the proposal, we both graduated from college. Later that same year, we got
married at our hometown church followed with a big celebration after! Now as a couple
we love to watch movies, take time for date nights, be outside, go to the lake, watch
sporting events, and enjoy time on our farm.
We are so ready to share our unconditional love with another child in order to grow and
complete our family!
