3/8 Flare fitting to 3/8 Compression ?

My 3 bathroom faucets and the kitchen faucet water lines have flare fittings. The new faucets come in 3/8 compression. I went by Lowe's and Home Depot, but I can't seem to find an adapter for them. Is there such thing?

My supply line connector is 3/8 male flare, and the faucet hose has 3/8 female compression. I need 3/8 female flare to 3/8 male compression adapter. I can't tell from the photos, and the spec does not specify which is male/female. I will swing by Home Depot and take a look. Thanks.

I would personally cut off the flare and replace with a compression fitting or Sharkbite with a traditional 3/8" compression. I haven't ever seen/used a flare > compression adapter. I'm sure you could adapt it, but why?

Where is the shutoff valve? Is it part of the flare setup, or is it just a soldered-in valve? A picture might help.

@ beelzebob I went by the Home Depot and ran into their staff who are very knowledgeable. He was able to find the correct one on display, but they were out of stock. The one you found was too big at one end, although it said 3/8. Went to Lowe's, and found them (Proline Series 3/8-in x 3/8-in Compression Adapter Fitting in the Brass Fittings department at Lowes.com)

@Zorfdt The below are my supply lines. They seemed soldered on.
