We have been inseparable since the night we met at a Karaoke fundraiser where Dan serenaded Alissa with an impeccable Justin Timberlake impression. We immediately fell in love and married a year later. About five years ago we adopted our son, Sullivan, and our family grew. When we are not working, we love to travel and go on adventures, get creative, and sit back and relax. Our home is perfect for cuddling up to watch a movie next to our sleepy dogs, Fosse and Mia, or playing/relaxing in our big backyard. We like to challenge each other to fulfill our dreams, and are thrilled and hopeful to grow our family again through adoption.
Our home is a cozy and sits on a tree-lined street with a lawn in the front, and a large backyard. Our yard has several fruit trees, a chicken run, and large space for playing. Just a few block away, we can walk to a beautiful park with a playground perfect to meet all the other neighborhood kids. With Salt Lake City’s mountains, canyons, parks, zoos, libraries, museums, and local events, there’s always something to do. We look forward to summers full of hikes, farmer’s markets and roasting marshmallows around the campfire, with winters full of sledding and hot chocolate while we admire all of the Christmas lights around town as a family.
