Committed Couple
Sandy and Rachel Smith-Mosel


Equality Day at the Legislative building in Olympia, Washington.
Brennen, Rachel, Sandy
Laura, Kyle

Sandy and Rachel consider themselves “bashert,” which is Hebrew for “soul mates.”
They met in the school parking garage where Sandy was a teacher.
Their chemistry was electric, and, within moments, Rachel knew they
were to be a couple. They are co-workers, best friends, the love
of one another’s lives, a loving family.
Their pride and joy are their three children.


Sandy, Rachel


First day of school, 2005. Brennen, 10, enters 5th grade,
Kyle, 7, enters 2nd, and Laura, 5, starts kindergarten.
