Elliot & Laci
are hopeful adoptive parents from Idaho waiting to adopt a baby.
If you are pregnant and considering placing your child for adoption, please read the following Dear Birthmother Letter.
Dear Expectant Parents,
We have experienced both the miracle of childbirth, and the miracle of adoption, and the Lord has truly blessed our family! Ava's birthmom is amazing, beautiful, and strong, and without her amazing gift, our family would not be what it is today, and would certainly have a void. We love Ava's birthmom so much, appreciating her sacrifice and loving her, for loving Ava so much. We love visiting her and her family, and talking with her over the phone or facebook!
As a couple
Elliot and I met in June of 2001, and after adventurous dates of hiking in Moab, bungee jumping, and hiking Mount Timpanogas to watch the sunrise, we were married February, 2002 in the Idaho Falls Temple. Three years later our son Payton was born, and three years after that, we adopted our daughter Ava.
Elliot and I have experienced so much together. Through those moments of joy and tears, it has only reinforced our commitment to each other and our family, and brought us closer. By working together, and showing one another love, respect, compassion, and forgiveness, we know that we can be successful as a couple. We know there is nothing more important or meaningful that we will do in this life than being a parent.
As a father I feel that keeping a connection with your kids is top priority, and by playing sports with my son, playfully wrestling with my little girl, and having camp-out nights in the basement will keep us close. I like to fish, make/build things (right now I'm working on bunk-beds!), riding motorcycles with my son, fishing, and playing my guitar.
Being a mom is the best! I love every part, from taking kids to extracurricular activities, dentist appointments, helping out in classrooms, to making cookies on a Sunday afternoon! I also love cooking, scrapbooking, playing & teaching piano, reading books, exercising, and decorating my house.
Payton is very active, playing basketball, football, and baseball. He likes to ride his bicycle and motorbike, and wrestling with his dad. He is a smart little guy, ahead in math and reading, and is very protective of his sister.
Ava is free-spirited and affectionate! She likes to dance, do gymnastics, play dress-up, and loves preschool! She is a little diva, particular about her clothes and hair! It's hilarious! She looks forward to her playmate coming home from school!
As A Family
We love to be active! Together we enjoy camping, riding four wheelers and motorcycles, hiking, swimming, and sports in the backyard. We enjoy visiting family and friends, playing and inventing games on Sundays, and Friday night movie & popcorn.

Our family is not yet complete, and each of us can feel that. Even our children have faithfully prayed for a baby brother or sister, and that says a lot when a child can do that every night over two years! We have so much love to share, and have such a strong desire to love a child.
We think you are very brave, and admire you for this decision that you are making. We also know that this is a difficult time for you. Thank you for considering us, our thoughts are with you and we pray that you will have peace with this decision.
With our deepest love,
Elliot, Laci, Payton, and Ava
