What do you call a fake noodle? An Impasta! (Dad Joke) Hi we are Paul and Rachel, and we are excited for the opportunity to adopt and be first-time parents! We met at our local university 7 years ago and have been married for 4 years. We love to laugh, play board games, and hike. Our favorite thing about living in Utah is that our families are close. We have 12 amazing nieces and nephews whom we adore. We are excited to have a third member of our family to make memories and share our love with.
Paul very passionate about life and loves trying, creating, and learning new things This includes cooking, home improvement projects, and gardening. Another talent he has is teaching and playing violin. Paul fluent in Spanish, which he learned while serving mission for his church for two years in Argentina. Paul is also successful in setting goals, putting in dedicated work, and achieving them. He is a hard worker, and puts providing for his family as a priority. He also finds joy in helping those around him He is a respectful and loving husband who is a peacemaker in the home. He enjoys making others laugh and feel comfortable. He loves being an uncle and looks forward to having children of his own.
If I could describe Rachel in one word, I would choose spunky. Rachel is always looking for new things to try and loves sharing this enthusiasm and curiosity with her friends and family. I think that is why she is a naturally good teacher. She conquers her fears and encourages those around her to do the same. She loves spending time in the mountains, playing games and practical jokes among other things. She loves wholeheartedly; the children of her classroom, the teenage girls she mentors at church, and her family. I admire the importance she places on the time she spends with those whom she loves. She is smart, thoughtful, kind, and patient which will make an amazing mother and role model. I can’t imagine anyone else with whom I would want to share the responsibility of parenthood.
