More About Us

The summary of each member of our family along the side covers quite a bit, but I think expectant/birth mothers must have so many questions. I'd like to give some more detail about us in the hopes of helping you get to know us better.

I (Cassie) was born in California, but if you ask me where I'm from I'll say Missouri. That's my home. We live in Utah and I love it here, too. I adjust pretty well and consider myself to be very adaptable. Steven was born in Texas but his family moved to Missouri when he was a kid so he answers that question the same as me.

Our son, Liam, was born in Indiana. We adopted him from birth and it was a beautiful experience. We have a semi-open adoption with his birth mom. She is free to contact us any time. We love her dearly. Liam is going to be 2 in August and he is the sweetest and most social kid I know.

We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are very devout in our faith and love the Lord. We believe that all God's children are created equal and we do our very best to show love towards our fellow man.

Steven is the 2nd of 5 boys. His parents are incredible. His dad recently passed away due to cancer, but we hope to help our kids come to know him still through pictures and stories. His mom now lives in Michigan with relatives. She is funny and sassy and loves her kids and grandkids. 

I am the oldest of 8 kids (5 girls, 3 boys). My parents are divorced. I have a huge family and love how many wonderful people, especially siblings,  have been made a part of my life through the sad circumstance of divorce. I think it's really important to dwell on the good, not the bad. Family means the world to me.

We love movies and board games. We enjoy being outside, but only in warm weather. It's harder to get us out in the cold. However, all the best holidays are during the cold seasons so we have to suck it up cause we LOVE holidays!!! We like to make a big deal out of everything. We love old and new traditions.

Steven is half Mexican and half Italian. He speaks German and served as a missionary in Switzerland for 2 years. I don't speak any other languages, but I do enjoy studying them. I have introduced many different language videos to our son and think it's really important to expand our minds.

Liam is our little sunshine. He is a huge fan of Moana and The Secret Life of Pets. He loves music and dancing. I'm currently teaching him a lot of oldies. His favorite right now is "What's New, Pussycat?" He's an excellent dancer. 😊

Liam is becoming a big basketball fan. We are a San Antonio Spurs family and he now recognizes the logo and will chant "Defense! Defense!" when a game is on. It's a source of pride for Steven.

Describing ourselves in great detail is so complicated because we don't know what you want to know. If you are interested in getting to know us more and have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask. God bless you.
