Thank you for taking the time get to know us better. We hope this tells you a little bit about who we are, how we love each other and how much we are looking forward to getting to know you!
We feel that in adopting we are not only gaining a child but a whole other family and we are so excited about that! We are hoping for an open adoption but want you to know that your wishes are the most important thing to consider. We would love nothing more than to build a relationship with you and have you in our lives and your child's life.
Travis, Erin and Zoe
Travis and I met in 2009 while we were freshman in college. We dated for four years before getting married in 2013. While we were dating, we travelled as much as poor college students could. We deeply value new experiences, exploring new places and meeting new people. We were married in the mountains in Logan, Utah. For our honeymoon, we went on a week long river rafting trip in Moab, Utah with a youth group of about 12 fifteen-year olds, we had a blast!
We graduated from Utah State University, Travis studied Political Science and I studied Elementary Education with an emphasis in Deaf education. After we graduated, we took off and travelled through Europe for 9 weeks. We visited 7 countries including France, Germany, Slovenia and Croatia. It was an incredible experience-one that we will always cherish. After we returned, I became a second grade teacher and Travis continued his job at Utah Food Bank. In August of 2017, Zoe joined our family. Currently, I teach English online in the morning before Travis goes to work at a law firm. I absolutely love being home with Zoe during the day! Travis is currently applying to law schools and hopefully will be starting law school next fall.
This is us
We are a very active family and love to be outdoors! Living in Utah, we are minutes away from some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. In the summer we love camping, hiking, riding our bikes and walks to the park nearly every night. In the winter, we enjoy snowboarding and snowshoeing. During the fall we usually spend Saturdays watching LSU games. We also love to dress up! For Halloween we go all out! We value spending time together and make it a priority to connect each day, even if it's just taking a communal nap or watching a show.
We live in a great neighborhood near Salt Lake City. We love living near the city; there are always people out and about and events going on. We have farmers’ markets every weekend and movies in the park during the summer. We have enjoyed having several parks right next to us with splash pads and walking trails. We live in a two bedroom house with a nice big backyard that Zoe and Millie love to spend time in.
