We can't wait to shower your baby with all the love and compassion garnered from our years preparing for parenthood. You can rest assured that your child will be provided with a stable, conscious, and richly nurturing home.
We are Jeanne and Michael, from Seattle. We met through a mutual friend 9 years ago in San Francisco. We are beyond ready to give our unconditional love to a child and grow our family through the miracle of adoption.
We spoke about adoption long before we found out we couldn't conceive a child naturally. It has always seemed like a fitting path for us as a couple. We have a deep reverence for children and the gift that they are to the world and we can't imagine a life without them.
Even though we do not know you yet, we have so much admiration and respect for you and for the decision you are preparing to make. While we cannot begin to understand everything you are going through, we realize that it requires a tremendous amount of love, courage and selflessness on your part.
Please know we offer our sincere support and prayers to you as you navigate the difficult decisions that lie ahead of you. We hope that by looking at our photos and reading about our lives you will find comfort in knowing how much we want to share our lives and our love with a child.
Who We Are
We met through a mutual friend in San Francisco, where we used to live. We were smitten from the moment we met! On our first date, we spent several hours talking, laughing, and walking arm in arm through the San Francisco Hills. We connected over our love of art, our commitment to kindness and authenticity and our beautiful community of friends. We had so much fun it was hard to say goodbye that night! We did lots of fun things while we were dating, like going to the movies and taking pictures in photo booths, seeing art and music shows, traveling up the coast, hiking in the woods, and bicycling around the Bay Area. Besides being deeply in love, we are also best friends. We got married in Pescadero, California surrounded by friends and family from around the world. Our wedding was a true example of the deep spirit of creativity and community that fills our lives. Jeanne made her wedding dress- a prayer in each silk petal sewn; Michael made his tie and the fire pit we got married around; the banquet was a luxurious potluck; Jeanne's bouquet was gathered and beautifully arranged by girlfriends. We feel so lucky to have such a loving circle of friends and family. We know without a doubt that our child will be cherished by those who surround him or her!
