Dear Friend

Dear Friend
Family means the world to us and as you read through our profile, we hope you can see the love we have for all our family and the love we have for you and your child. We feel it is important to have an open adoption and want us to both be comfortable with that level of openness. We feel it is important that your child knows who you are and how important you are to us and to them.

Its not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters

We look forward to telling your child all about you and your family regularly. We would love an open relationship that includes regular contact from updates through email and text and visits if that is something you are interested in. We want what is best for your child and can't wait to share our family with yours.
We are a happy, fun, loving couple who are looking to add to the love and joy we have in our life by starting a family.

Our Story

We met at church one spring day in 2011. I (Sarah) had recently had a knee surgery from a work injury and Joe had an ankle surgery a few months prior, so he walked up and started talking with me. We spent a couple weeks getting to know each other, before he officially asked me out and took me on the most perfect little picnic and hike, the hike lasted longer than expected because neither one of us wanted the date to be over.

Every Family has a Story... Welcome to ours

It wasn’t long before we were in a serious relationship and during Thanksgiving weekend Joe asked me to marry him, I was happy and excited to say yes. We were married a few months later on March 24th, 2012.
After getting married, I became sick and we spent a lot of time seeing doctor after doctor trying to figure out what was going on. Joe was with me every step of the way, caring for me and helping me stay positive and hopeful during a time of uncertainty. During that time, we lost a pregnancy due to a tubal pregnancy and received news that one tube didn’t work anymore and the other looked diseased. I was told that I now have a much higher risk of another tubal pregnancy.
After finally meeting with a specialist, I feel better than I ever have, and we want nothing more than to be parents. We have always felt our family would grow through adoption and hope to share our family with yours.

Meet Joe

Sarah's Prospective:
"If you are around Joe, there is a good chance you'll be laughing. Joe is funny, creative, fun loving, and silly.
Joe is easy to talk to, loves his family and is a hard worker.

You are my today and all of my tomorrows. -Leo Christopher

He worked hard to get through school when we first were married and since graduating, has worked hard to do well at his job. Joe loves sports, he loves to watch Football and answers all my sport related questions while I sometimes watch with him. He likes to watch basketball as well, but he loves playing even more. He goes out and shoots hoops and if we have nieces and nephews around, he is out there playing ball with them. He has enjoyed coaching sports in addition to playing them."

When I am not working, I love to play basketball, or watch sports and spend time with Sarah. Most of my time spent watching sports is answering all of Sarah’s questions, sports related and not, we are always having a good time. My favorite thing to do is spend time with Sarah, whether I am supporting her at a training class, or taking care of her when she doesn’t feel well, I enjoy being with her. I enjoy to make up songs and am constantly singing. I am a happy, fun loving guy. We have two dogs we adore. Billie Bones is our fun loving German Shepherd and Oakley is our Golden Retriever. They both love when our nieces and nephews come to visit.

I have 2 brothers, and older brother and a younger brother that I am close with. My oldest brother Andrew is married and has 4 kids. We see them often, as they live about 30 minutes from us. My youngest brother is attending school. We see my parents at least once a month. We live about 2 hours away from them and love to do things with them. Every year we have a Crozier reunion at Petit Lake.

I work for the USDA writing home loans. I enjoy running the business side of our dog training school and attending classes to help and support Sarah when she needs extra help.

Meet Sarah

Joe's Perspective:

"Sarah is the most awesome person I have ever met. She is fun, sweet and kind. Sarah is a determined and dedicated person who when she knows what she wants works to achieve it.

Family: Forever, for always, no matter what

She has always supported me and helped me to be a better person in all aspects of my life. Sarah enjoys playing with the nieces and nephews, whether it is coloring or showing the kids how to get the dogs to do tricks."

When I have free time, I love being with Joe, whatever we might be doing. Due to some illness, a lot of time spent together has been binge watching our favorite TV shows and now that I feel well, we are out hiking with the dogs, kayaking, and camping with family. Joe loves to play sports and he spends a lot of time trying to teach me how to play them, but usually it just ends in them both laughing.

A lot of our time right now is spent working, running our business and serving in our church. In the evenings we love to go for walks and spend that time talking about how our days went and dreaming about the future. Our weekends have been busy with house projects and also traveling to see Joe's family and camping trips. Some days, we just relax on our days off.
We cannot wait to add a child into our lives and to spend time taking them to the park, library, attending their school functions, supporting them in the activities and/or sports they want to participate in as they grow up. As we welcome a child into our home, we plan to change our busyness from running our business and life to busyness that comes from caring for and loving a child.

I have 8 siblings, 5 of which I grew up with. When I was a senior in high school my parents adopted the first of three girls from China. I enjoyed getting to spend a few months with her before leaving for college. I have 4 brothers and 4 sisters. My parents are 8 hours away from us, but they visit our area a few times a year, so we see them often. Most of my family lives in the same area as my parents. We meet up with my older brother and his family every year at Bear Lake for a mini reunion.

I work from home as a medical coder. I have a very flexible schedule. I also own and run a dog training school and love that. I hope someday soon, that will be all I do work wise. Joe is very involved with the business and helps run classes when I need him to.
