Hoping to Adopt Feature!

Kelly & Stephanee

"HI! We are Kelly and Stephanee. We met in 2007 in sunny St George, Utah. We dated for 5 months, got engaged, and married 3 months after engagement in the Manti Utah Temple. We bought our first home in 2009. We welcomed a tri-colored beagle into our home a few months after buying our home. His name is Oakley (but also goes by the name "Hey You, No No, Get out of that, Get over here, Get IN here, Bad Dog, Go Away, Stop Chewing That, etc). He is the most mellow dog I have ever met, and LOVES children! Whenever our nieces and nephews are around we get ignored and he follows them around.

We have always known that we wanted children. We tried for one year and after failure to become pregnant, we went to a fertility specialist. After some testing, they found we are unable to have our own children. We knew that adoption was our next step. We took the step with both feet in even when we both knew little about adoption. Now that it has been one year since we were posted "live" online we have learned a lot about the adoption world and love every minute of it!

In the meantime of waiting patiently to bring a child into our home, we try to enjoy our favorite activities such as fishing, camping, hunting, hiking, swimming, sports riding bikes, jeeping, and any other outdoor activity we can find! We get the opportunity to spend a lot of time with nieces and nephews, who range in the ages of 3 months to 5 years old.

We are grateful to be able to participate in adoption and look forward to starting our own family one day!
