About Us

We are an adventurous couple that enjoys experiencing new things and making memories as a family. Dakota works from home in clinical research, and Cody works for a mechanical parts company. We have three very spoiled dogs and two wonderful children. We love trying new foods and activities and exploring the city. During the week, we enjoy relaxing at home, working on our house, cooking tasty meals, and spending nights with our children watching movies, playing board games, and doing crafts. Dakota also really enjoys video games, while Cody loves to play and watch sports. On weekends, we check out local events and enjoy spending time visiting family and friends, camping, or by the pool. We are both easygoing and fun-loving, but we are also dedicated and goal-oriented people. We enjoy taking family vacations and are blessed with a large, loving, and supportive family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a spacious home in a very family-friendly neighborhood with many children and young families. Our community has several parks to play in and a pool, and we have a large backyard for our children and dogs to run around in. Our dogs (Zeus, Mark, and Stanley) love to play and are very protective of and gentle with children. We live in a wonderful school district that has progressive, individual, child-focused programs. There is always some sort of festival or event going on in our community and city, which we often take our children (and sometimes dogs) to attend.

Our Extended Family

We both have large extended families that offer love and support to us and our children. Cody has one older brother, and Dakota has five younger brothers and one sister. We live very close to loving grandparents and aunts and uncles who frequently visit and attend all our children’s school and sporting events. We enjoy spending vacations as a family and live within driving distance of extended family, who we spend holidays and summer trips with. We also have an additional family in our supportive friends and neighbors to help care and watch out for our children.

Our family and friends have always supported us in our journey with foster care and adoption, and they are eagerly awaiting the chance to welcome a new baby into the family, including lots of baby cousins for our new child to grow and play with.

Our Adoption Story

We spent several years as foster parents with both short-term and long-term placements. We are blessed to have been able to give love and support to many great kids over the years. Our 13-year-old daughter, Cody’s biological daughter, has always been a loving sister and friend to the children who stayed with us. We are very lucky to have adopted our son out of foster care when he was 14. He is now 16, and we are very proud of the young man he is becoming. While we loved doing foster care, we want to give love and a welcoming family to a new baby we can call our own. We want to focus on growing our family and making it complete.
