Carrie and Lisa - North Carolina

From the minute Carrie and Lisa met, they knew that they wanted to expand their family together. Lisa already had two sons from a previous marriage, so it made sense for Carrie to be the one to get pregnant. In the midst of planning for the arrival of their daughter, Zoë, Carrie and Lisa never questioned that they would both be Zoë’s parents. But after talking to friends who had also had children, the couple realized that their options were limited in North Carolina.
