Meet Jared

Jared turns 4 in July. He LOVES planes, trains and anything with wheels. He will point out any sign of a jet in the sky, every time, and he can spot a helicopter before anyone else. He has a contagious laugh and is happiest when making others smile. He doesn't have to talk much because his big sister does that for him but when he does speak, he's very smart and knows what he wants. He enjoys preschool but likes to be home more. He loves his sleep. He will just go lay himself down when he needs a rest. {Wise beyond his years.}

Milk is his favorite "food." Orange his favorite color (because Dusty crophopper is orange) and his favorite person is mom.

His precious little spirit is going to do big things in this world - we feel honored he's in our family.

Meet Ciara

Ciara just turned 5 and she couldn't be more excited to start kindergarten this fall. The loves FISH, probably as much as she love Toothless from "How To Train Your Dragon." Her best friend is her Teddy bear and little brother. When she grows up she wants to be a chef, a cheerleader, a doctor, an artist, and a mom. She super funny - making us laugh everyday. She has a kind heart and gives the sweetest hugs. She's a deep thinker and keeps us on our toes learning new throngs. She's always been an excellent swimmer - makes us wonder if she was a fish in a past life. 

She asks if mom's growing a baby in her heart because she wants to be a BIG big sister NOW! 😄 She's such a good helper. If given the choice to go to Disneyland again or get a baby she would choose a baby--- "but mom, let's get a baby and take it to Disneyland!" HAHA Good thinking!

She's our whole world and the world is a better place with her in it!

 We are super open and love our journey through adoption. If we sound like the right fit for you and your situation please contact us and we can get to know each other a little better by phone or email or even in person. We are praying for you that you will find the strength to do whatever it is that's right for you and your baby whether that's single parenting, co-parenting, or placing for adoption. Best wishes!

Home Sweet Home

We lived in Las Vegas for another year and then Josh took a job as a Field Service Technician, contracting for a global company. He currently travels all over the country installing and repairing transformers. Although he can be gone for extended periods of time, it also allows for him to be home for long stretches, being able to experience a lot of things other dads don't. He's incredible with the kids and we think we make a great team!

Because of his job we were able to move back to Pocatello, Idaho where most of our family is located. We love being close to family and great friends.

We bought a home last summer and are in the process of making it our own. The kids love having a nice yard to play in and we make sure to get outside every chance we get!

Recently, Terra opened up business for an at home based bakery called "Everything Swee.t" It's a fun way to create, make money and still be a stay at home mom - which is her favorite job!
