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!

It has been a whirlwind the past couple of months. First Baby Emily was born and we spent a week up in Logan with her in the NICU. Next it was getting ready for school and drill and trying to make sure the house was good before I left. This meant putting another sprinkler in the front for a area that we had put grass and three in the back where the deck had been. Then it was off to drill in Ft Irwin California for a week only to have the swamp cooler give out while I was gone and after our 1 year home warranty had expired. Got home and got the swamp cooler fixed with the help of some awesome ward members and also was given one that would help in the future. Finished up the next week with drill and then headed back to school after missing the first two weeks of classes and am trying to make that up. Along with all of this have been busy helping to take care of Emily who is a lovable little girl. I love my life though and wouldn't give any of it up. For those that are wondering this is Jacob posting on this blog for the first time.
