Rachel & Mitt
Hello! We are Rachel and Mitt and cannot wait to grow our family through adoption. We have been married for 8 years and together for 11 years. We are each other’s best friend and supporter. We live in Central Texas and have both of our families nearby. We feel so blessed that all of our family and friends are supportive of our decision to adopt. Two of our youngest nephews are both adopted and are thrilled with the idea that they will have a cousin who is also adopted.
Mitt is a semi-retired consultant and Rachel is a homemaker, so we have plenty of love and time to devote to a child. We enjoy the quiet side of life – trying new restaurants, watching movies, and spending time with friends and family. We love to travel, especially road trips! Rachel enjoys reading, painting, and walking our dog, which has been a great way to meet new people in our neighborhood. We live in a gated community with wonderful neighbors and lots of green space and nature trails to roam. Mitt loves sports, including watching college sports and playing golf. We both enjoy doing volunteer work and have a monthly commitment to do so together. We also love spending time with our youngest nephews and niece, whether it’s babysitting, taking them out to dinner for their birthday, or going to their sporting events.
We are both native Texans; Mitt grew up in a small town with lots of extended family close by and Rachel grew up in the suburbs of a large town. Our faith is very important to us and we attend church regularly. We are fortunate to live in a great school district with many academic and arts opportunities available.
Our journey to build a family has been one of ups, downs, twists, and turns, but we feel sure that we are now on the path meant for us!
