So I watched this show on MTV called '16 and pregnant' and I'm sure a lot of you may have seen it as well. One particular episode focused on a young couple that decided to put their baby girl up for adoption and an absolute darling couple was blessed with a baby due to a courageous decision. I just sobbed because it made me think of my birth mother and the courageous decision she made 24 years ago. A lot of you probably do know that I was adopted and I have been so very, very grateful for this experience. My birth mother was 19 when she had me, when my birth father found out she was pregnant he left her, so she had to go through this alone. My family got a call and they jumped at the opportunity and flew to California to pick me up when I was two days old. It was a private adoption so I have never met my birth mother but oh my goodness she will always hold a very special place in my heart. I hope to meet her one day to tell her thank you for the life I have now. My family is absolutely incredible and I couldn't imagine my life without my mom, dad, and sweet sister Nicole. I was able to be sealed to them when I was 6 months old and because of it, my knowledge and testimony of the temple and this gospel has progressed tremendously. I just felt compelled to share this:)

The day I was sealed to my family (dad is taking the pic)and excuse the faux hawk

In front of the hospital I was born in California


Happy Birthday {Mom}


i love you mom!!!!!


{Roxy} Girl....

Okay so I hope this doesn't come across mean or anything like that so don't be a hater, it was just an observation that I feel I need to express, it's a pet peeve really. So the Roxy line really is cute and all, don't get me wrong, but seriously it just seems a little over the top in Utah. There really isn't a need to stick every Roxy sticker ever made all over your honda, let me guess you have Utah hair too. Does anybody else find it a little excessive?
