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!

Life has been busy the last few weeks. All 4 of us started school. Jacob is in the Masters program at the U as a full time student and is also working full time. Tamara has just started her Senior year in High School. She is planning on graduating early and will be done in January. She is starting cosmetology school in February. After getting her license she will be able to work at a salon or resort and work her way through a traditional college. I am in my 2nd year (3rd semester) at SLCC in photography. After I get my associates I will move on to the U or UVU and get my Bachelors in Photojournalism/Mass Communications. I am going full time as well. Miss Em just turned 2 which means she is old enough for the day care at my school which is a preschool style facility. I was worried how she would do since she has never been watched by anyone other than friends and family. But she is thriving and doing fantastic. Between school, work, renovations to the house (our basement has flooded 4 times in the last 3 months so we had to start the basement renovation and put the kitchen renovation on hold.) we are a very busy bunch. Life is good though. The girls are growing up so much. Here are some photos of them just this isn't an all worded post.

(All of Tamara's photos were done by me. All of Emily's are by Fotofly.)
