Our oldest son Brigham is 12 and is kind, sharp witted, and hysterically funny. He loves building things with his hands and is very fond of babies and cats.
Our Annie is 10 and is a sucker for animals.
Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
She is so kind hearted and I’m sure would even tend to an injured crocodile given the chance. She’s my “little mom” around the house and is such a big help with her siblings.
Cora is our 6-year-old and has a great sense of humor. This girl would do anything for a laugh. She’s very artistic and could sit and draw for hours. She’s also very introspective and spiritual and she loves to learn about Jesus and the scriptures.
Charlie is our 4-year-old firecracker. She’s got personality oozing out her ears. She’s a smarty pants and sometimes her intelligence makes it hard to remember she’s only 3. Charlie loves Ariel the mermaid because she has red hair and blue eyes just like her.
All the children talk constantly about their new little brother or sister and how they can’t wait to hold them and hug them and play with them. They already love this child as much as we do and are so anxious to meet them.
When we, as adults, look back on our own childhood, our fondest memories aren’t playing expensive video games or having the latest new gadgets. Our best and brightest memories are the ones we shared just being with our loved ones. Sometimes it was being stuck in a stinky car with a busted AC on long road trips playing road games with siblings to kill time.
Sometimes it was building epic forts in the living room on Saturday afternoons or playing telephone with empty tin cans and a string of twine. That’s what we are striving to give to our children now. We make a point to put down the electronics, look up into each other’s eyes, make connections, ask questions, laugh too loud, make messes, stay in pajamas some days, be silly, express love openly, and make each other feel seen and feel special. We believe these are the moments where the family is strengthened and can truly live.
While we hope you can become a part of our family, whatever you choose to do, we pray that you may be given strength and be comforted in your decision. You are already our hero just for having the courage to consider adoption as a possible choice. Whatever you decide is best, we hope you know that God’s love for you is infinite. We wish you the very best on your journey. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have. We’d be so happy to hear from you.
