We are Liz and Adam. We cannot wait to meet you! Thank you for your selflessness in considering adoption. We cannot imagine the weight of this decision for you and want you to know how blessed we feel to be a part of your decision. We have four amazing children and hope to be able to add your sweet child into our family. We already feel a love and a bond to your baby and can’t wait to expand the love into our family. Thank you for making this difficult decision for your baby.
We met at a high school basketball game and both knew we would get married one day. We were high school sweethearts, wrote during Adam’s two-year church mission and got married soon after he got home. We’ve been married for 15 years!

What Liz Loves About Adam
Adam is loving, tender and full of life. Every child we meet instantly feels safe and comfortable around him. We lovingly refer to him as Addy or Daddy Addy. He loves to be silly and make our kids laugh. He is a part of every tween conversation in our home and really good at dad-jokes. He can relate and be fun around our daughters and son equally well. He loves to be outdoors camping, hunting, dirt biking, snow-mobiling, boating, anything outdoors! Adam is tender hearted and loves to make people feel good about themselves. He is a motivator. He is confident. He is self-motivated and loves his career. Adams highest priorities in life are his family and Jesus Christ. He loves the Savior and includes Him in every decision in life. Adam loves children and has wanted to adopt since he was young.

Both of us grew up in large families. We get together with both sides of the family often. Adam’s side all lives in town and we see each other for almost every holiday as well as travel to Mexico, California and Thailand together. Liz’s side lives more distant but we also meet often in Oregon, Arizona, Idaho and California. We have both been blessed with loving and wonderful families. Both of our fathers have passed but our mothers are wonderful and really involved grandmothers. One grandma will pick up each grandchild individually for birthday lunches. The other grandma will come visit and teach the kids to paint, sew or do woodworking.
Our families are both loyal, loving, silly and fun! We have a huge support group and can’t wait to introduce your baby to them.
Our Home and Community
We are currently building a new home on two acres in Idaho. We both grew up in Idaho and love it’s conservative family ideals. Our purpose in moving is to give our children opportunities to be in nature, grow a garden, raise animals, and play outdoors. We love the community feel of Middleton for example their 4th of July parades through town and Friday night football tailgating. Adam grew up with a pool and has fond memories of being in the pool with his siblings. Because of his love for his pool, we added one to our new home. We also added a theatre room because we love family movie night with popcorn and blankets. Middleton is close to the mountains, rivers, lakes all of which we love to camp at. Middleton has awesome schools and close-knit families.
Our Furry Friends
We have two pups, Honey is a four-year-old labradoodle and Taffita Muttonfudge is a one-year-old Cavalier King Charles. They are super sweet and cuddly!
Why We Love Living in Idaho
- Camping – because Idaho is gorgeous
- Waterskiing -because it’s the best sport ever
- Soccer – all of our kids play soccer and we spend a lot of family time at the fields together
- Swimming – We have a backyard pool
- Visiting grandma because she lives close by and we love her
Our Thoughts on Parenting
We both came from amazing parents and families. Family is super important to both of us. We both had large families and want our kids to have the same. We love family traditions that create a bond and a belonging in our children. We feel strongly about the need for children to work around the home. This is why we are moving to two acres so that the children can have responsibilities and opportunities to work and develop. We also feel strongly about sports and church activity. We know that when children feel a part of a team, their desire to be accepted is met and they become better people for learning to work as a team.
