Joyfully married for 11 years, a decade plus of life together has led us through 4 states, 2 countries, and the deep desire to build community wherever we are--including in our own family. We truly can't wait to be parents, and we're a healthy mix of overwhelmed and overjoyed when we think about welcoming a child into our family through adoption. To learn more about what led us down this road, you can read Our Story. In the meantime, check out the slideshow below and three quick facts you should know about us:

1. We LOVE cooking and eating. Great things happen around full tables. 

2. Kyle grew up in Wisconsin. Emily is from Louisiana. Emily did a project on Wisconsin in 5th grade and thought it might be one of the greatest places ever. She was right.

3. We love adventure and travel. Whether trying a new bike trail in the Twin Cities or hiking a crater lake in Uganda, we're energized by exploring new places.
