thank you for stopping by!

We are so thankful for the opportunity that we have to embark on the journey of adoption once again!


our family…

We have been married for almost 10 years and are blessed to have two sweet boys {Rand age 7 & Caleb age 3}.  Troy teaches seminary fulltime for the LDS Church and Rebecca is a stay-at-home mommy.  We enjoy being together as a family playing games, traveling, and dancing in the kitchen.  We value family prayer, scripture study, laughter, and education.

birthmom's rule

adoption & openness…

Our lives were blessed more than we ever could have imagined in 2006 with our adoption of Caleb.  We adore his birthmom and have a very open relationship with both her and her family.  We love them, respect them, and pray for them daily.  We look forward to experiencing future enriching relationships with birth families!

If you would like more information about our family, please visit our online {adoption profile} or feel free to contact us!
