Dear Friend,

Yes, you counted right! We do have a big family, and it's awesome! Thank you for wanting to get to know us better. We are big, happy, and lots of fun! We have an amazing life together in the mountains and we couldn't be happier, but we know someone is missing.

As you look through our photos and videos, we hope you will catch a glimpse of our very blessed life together. We hope you'll enjoy getting to know our happy family and see what an incredible blessing all the love in a big family can be!

We have a profound feeling that someone is missing, that we’re not yet whole. We all have it, and we know that there is a specific child or children that are meant to be with us, and we can't wait for them to join us. We already love them and we will look and hope and pray until they can come home.

Big families are the best! Believe us when we tell you that the love only keeps on growing! There's always room for more love here!

Being parents already, we can only imagine the decision you are faced with. If you choose our family, please know that your baby will be cherished, loved, and oh so wanted! Six big sisters can hardly stand the wait.

All our love is waiting!

Who We Are

We met our first week of college, and knew we were meant to be together forever. Life has brought us through thick and thin, and every moment has been sweeter because we are together.

It's brought us to where we are now: living with our amazing kids in the mountains of the greater Yellowstone area.

Though there are many facets to our story, the most important part of our story is this:

*We have a big family. An amazing, wonderful, big family.*

Matt and I could not have imagined when we started out just how much joy our children would bring us. Each addition to our family has increased the love and joy in our home.

Here are the best parts about having a big family:

*We are experienced parents who are gentle and kind in raising our children.

*Siblings can be an amazing part of life, like built-in best friends and a life-long support system.

*Our kids rarely fight, and when they do, they've learned to quickly mend it. Big families are wonderful training for life.

*Kids really do thrive in an environment filled with love and with siblings! Feeling left out is not an option for any of us in this family.

*The idea that kids can't thrive in a large family is flawed. A large family that is healthy only serves to provide a bigger support system.

*Our home in the mountains is an amazing place to grow up. Our adventures and discoveries only bond us closer.

*Life is SO MUCH better together! Our greatest joy is found in helping each member of our family dream and grow.

"Coming from a large family makes you feel protected - you have friends and allies." - Paul McGann

*We love you already, and hope you'll become a part of our happy family.

Singing around the campfire

Campfire night makes my heart happy.

There is nothing quite like nights around the fire, gathering in, talking about life,  and being together. I miss you especially today, little one. Soon I know you’ll join us.


Here we are, camping in the Tetons! Our oldest, A, is turning 14 this weekend! All she wanted was to go camping with me. We are having the best time. I love when my kids are all together, but I also love the one on one moments, too. Everything’s better together.

I’m off to do some more biking, hiking, kayaking, and s’mores!

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile
