Welcome to our corner of the web! Here you will learn about our family and our journey of a family member adoption. In July of 2010, after 9 years of trying to add to our family and 5 years after we started our adoption journey, we welcomed baby Emily Rose. Emily's birth mom is Sharon's adopted sister. We look forward to someday adopting more children but for now, we are enjoying our time together as a family of 4!

UFCF meeting

Just wanted to update really quick before heading to bed. We have a meeting with a rep. from the UFCF (Utah Foster Care Foundation) tomorrow afternoon (well Tuesday afternoon so technically that's today since it's 12:30 in the morning, but I haven't been to sleep yet, so it's still tomorrow to me). We were apprehensive about going this route again after what happened with "I" but we feel like this is something we need to pursue. We are in a different state then where we were with "I" and hubby isn't full time military anymore, so maybe it will be different this time. For whatever reason, whether this is how our child is going to come to us, we don't know. But we feel we need to do this, so we are. If all goes well we will start the adoption/foster care classes, and then will go through the paperwork for them and will get licensed with the state. We shouldn't need to do a lot of paperwork since our paperwork (Background checks and such) are so recent with our agency. We were told that if the background checks were more then 6 months old we would need to do them again. Our Utah ones are only a couple months old but our federal ones are a little older than that. So we'll see. Wish us luck!
