Get to know our family!

Where does one even begin in expressing appreciation for such a wonderful gift you are considering sharing with us? There are no words that could ever sum up how eternally grateful we would be to be trusted to raise, love, and welcome your baby into our family. We cannot wait to become parents!

A little bit about us: 

We have been married for almost 7 years and love calling Wyoming our home. We love anything having to do with the outdoors; camping, fishing, hunting, 4-wheeling, snowmobiling and any time we can hang out around a campfire is a good day for us. We also love traveling, seeing new and exciting places and taking on new adventures. Vonna loves to bake, craft, and is up for a good DIY around the house any day. Russ enjoys softball, motorcycling and watching movies any night of the week. We enjoy any excuse for a get together and love hosting friends and family any time we get the chance. 

When it comes to traveling give us a plane, a beach or a cruise ship and we are set! We enjoy cruising to the Caribbean, Central America, the Bahamas and even to Alaska this past summer. We also enjoy any chance to dip our toes in the ocean whether it be in California, Florida, South Carolina or Massachusetts, we have loved it all. Not to mention yearly trips to Utah and exploring the places nearby in good ol’ Wyoming. 


I was born and raised in Utah and moved to Wyoming 10 years ago to take a job teaching Junior High. A job I love and continue today. I grew up in a small family with one younger sister- boy did we ever have fun! Whether we were pretending to work at a grocery store, playing school or dancing to Richard Simmons, with it just being the two of us we let our creativity rule. We were lucky enough to spend much of our time with our Grandparents and looking back knowing how fortunate we were. We were blessed to have a fantastic childhood full of adventure, love and more laughs than you can ever imagine. 


Wyoming is the only place that I have ever called home. It is where I grew up and want to raise a family of my own. I was raised in a family of 4 boys (my poor Mom) but we all survived. We enjoyed playing sports, riding bikes and being outside. I am an HR manager and currently work for the State of Wyoming. 

Family is extremely important for both of us and making those memories that will last a lifetime. We cannot wait for the day when our family of 2 becomes a family of 3! We have an endless amount of love to give and cannot wait for the opportunity to share our home, life and love with a little one someday. 

We appreciate your time and consideration in helping us begin our ever so anticipated journey into parenthood. Thank you again. 

With Love, Russ & Vonna
