We are Todd and Carrie and we thank you for taking the time to learn more about our family. We are so excited to be adopting. We hope our story will help you in making your choice. Please know that no matter what you choose, we wish you and your child all the best. We look forward to meeting you. We grew up in the same small town in Washington. High School sweethearts now married 19 years, we've been lucky to live in so many amazing places, and meeting some amazing people along the way. From the beginning of our story, we both knew that adoption was always going be part of our family plan. As a couple we enjoy adrenaline inducing activities. We've been zip lining in Hawaii. We've done a caged shark dive. We enjoy riding quads. We love to cook together. We work well as a team. We strive to instill love and compassion in our children. We teach acceptance of others and how important it is that everyone has different beliefs. It is important to us that our children are able to be themselves and live their lives in a way that makes them happy.

Our three boys are so excited about having another sibling. They look forward to having another person to share our adventures with.
We live in a large 5-bedroom home within a rural neighborhood. We have a large, fenced back yard with a swing set and many outdoor toys. Our community is loving and supportive. The village we have built around us loves and cares for our family as if we've been here all along. Travel is an important part of our family. We love going to new places and exploring as much as we can. We make it a point to have fun and enjoy every moment. These years are vital to teaching our kids that you need to slow down and enjoy life.
We admire your courage and strength through the decisions you are making. Just know our arms are open and are full of love for you and this child. We are grateful for your consideration to raise your child. This child will have 3 big brothers who have hoped and wished for them to be a part of our family. They all will be very supportive and encourage their sibling to be who or what they are. Todd and I will be there for every moment of their life, big and small. We will be there to love and encourage them in every aspect of their life. We will encourage them to follow their dreams and to be true to themselves. Your child will know about their adoption story and the importance of you in their life. We look forward to staying connected with you. They will always feel loved by the whole family. Thank you for considering our family.
