We both grew up with siblings which not only means loud and messy tables, but encouraging words and family prayers. Those family bonds still mean the world to us as we hold onto family during difficult times and celebrate each other in happy times.
We have always felt an excitement to share our love of life with a large family – and knew this would include a family created by love, not by blood because of a genetic condition that makes biological children impossible.
Everyday we are grateful to watch our daughter grow and she has given our life new meaning. Parenthood has brought so much joy to our lives. We feel incredibly lucky to be raising one daughter through Foster Care adoption and feel ready for our family to grow again.
Our Home & Community
We are both born and raised in Utah in wonderful families. We just finished building a home in South Utah County, which is one of the most family friendly/family oriented places in the country. We can’t wait to share our wonderful home and community with another wonderful child. We live in a suburban area with many wonderful families with young children.
Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption
Parenting our daughter has been the most wonderful experience. She brings us so much joy its indescribable. Of course children’s JOB isn’t to bring you joy, that is only found within yourself. But seeing and helping you child discover what their joys are and being a part of their life sure is incredible. We have had many examples of love and logic parenting. Parenting with natural consequences, reasonable limits and discipline. The root of the word discipline is to learn. We hope our children learn and grow from making mistakes, and that will shape their decisions instead of fear of consequences.
We see you. We pray for you and your difficult position. Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and we look forward to speaking with you!
