Welcome!

We are rick and mal!

We are excited to continue to grow our family through adoption. WE live in northern utah and are home study approved. Take a look around and we look forward to getting to know you!

Rick and I met on a blind date in 2007 and we hit it off! Our first date was hiking to a waterfall and I was impressed that it was something different than the usual dinner and a movie. We had so much to talk about and really enjoyed being together. Soon we were talking every single day and even though we lived 100 miles apart, Rick found a way to come see me at least twice a week, putting in many miles and many late nights.

Thankfully Rick was both persistent and patient even when I had cold feet and we were finally engaged one year from our first date. He has been so incredible to me. He is patient, he is kind, he puts others first and truly loves his family with all of his heart. He is the best Dad and the kids and I are so grateful to have him.

I often say that he is the best thing that ever happened to me. I think of Rick what Marjorie Hinckley thought of her husband President Gordon B. Hinckley:

"You have always given me wings to fly, and I have loved you for it.”
