We met way back in junior high. It took us a few years until we fell madly in love, but we have been best friends for a long time. We were married in May 2003. Mark currently works for the family business, that is expanding like crazy and I am a registered nurse working in geriatrics. In 2009 we were lucky enough to be able to adopt our sweet baby girl Paityn from a wonderful birthmom, Elisa. And in 2011, we are expecting our son to join our family! Our lives only get richer every day.
