How it all started

 We met through mutual friends when Kyle moved to Oregon in May of 1998 to attend school. We dated a few months and got engaged on October 23rd (Kyle's birthday).

We were married July 23, 1999 in the Portland Oregon temple.

Over the next few years we both finished school, passed board exams, got our first "real" jobs, bought our first house, and decided it was time to start our family.  Although our struggle with unexplained infertility has been difficult, it led us to adoption.  Adoption has give us great hope and unbelievable blessings.
