We’re the Smiths and we live in Salt Lake City, UT.
We are originally from Orange County, California, but have lived in Utah on three different occasions.
We’ve also split our time between Washington, DC and Toronto, Canada.
We adopted our son, Roman, seven years ago and it has easily been the greatest blessing of our lives. He is the whole world to us. Son. Best friend. Inspiration.
Now it‘s time for us to grow our family, and we want to do it again through adoption.
We’ve always made two foundational promises to birth parents:
As a family we love to play golf, go on bike rides, and garden.
Deidra loves her garden, cooking, throwing parties, and traveling. Roman is her favorite travel companion. He’s up for any adventure and loves airplanes and road trips.
Mark loves golf, writing, classic cars, and lawn care. Anything, as long as Roman and Deidra are with him.
Roman loves sports, bike riding, and playing with his friends. He has an amazing sense of humor and does hilarious impressions.
Prix (pronounced ‘Pree’), our Teacup Yorkie, loves to lay by the fire and chase ducks.
Deidra grew up in California, Saudi Arabia, and New Zealand. She’s sponsored by See’s Candies for Halloween and is the favorite destination for the neighborhood. She loves to take Roman on fun trips. They went to Brazil last year!
Mark grew up in California and then went to BYU to play baseball. He’s a huge Patrick Swayze fan, has written essays read by more than 100 million people, and loves playing golf with Deidra and Roman more than anything. For work Mark works as a growth consultant, helping technology companies increase their revenues.
Roman is hilarious. He always cracks us up. He love school, especially math, and is an amazing friend. He loves making all kinds of friends and has such a big heart. He also loves baseball, golf, and hockey. Roman and Mark play baseball almost every day. Deidra and Roman never stop going on adventures.
