Adoption was Marcy's Plan A.

She and her husband adopted a biological sibling pair.

While remote schooling her children during the pandemic, she began to see a gap between adults with a desire to adopt and the 115,000 adoptable children within the United States. With a heart for those children and a deep desire to take action, she wrote a book for adults ("The Forgotten Adoption Option: A How-To and Self-Reflection Guide for Pursuing Foster Care Adoption") and launched a podcast (The Forgotten Adoption Option Podcast).

As USOA Mrs. Ohio 2022 she an ambassador for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption on a quest to find forever families for the 115,000 United States children who are waiting to be adopted through foster care.

After placing in the Top 16 at the United States of America's Mrs. Pageant and winning the People's Choice Award, she published the children's book "Are You a Forever Family?" and is developing an app (The Forgotten Adoption Option App) to teach 25,000 adoptive families how to get licensed to adopt through foster care.
