It’s wonderful to meet you. We are Kristen and Sean, and we live and work in Washington D.C. with our siamese cat, Mr. Sullivan. We are grateful for all we have and cannot wait to share it with a new family member. In our lives, we prioritize gratitude, openness and a sense of empathy for ourselves and our community.
We love doing and learning new things, enjoying all of what life brings. We like to get outdoors and travel to new places. We are excited about the possibility of a child joining the adventure and adding to the fun!

Who We Are
We met in 2012 through mutual friends - who had almost introduced us TWICE before. The first time we met we talked for hours -- comparing stories of growing up with parents in the military. We had so much in common, especially that we love to laugh.
In 2013, Kristen had an assignment abroad, so we lived in Austria (Sean part time) and got to travel all over Europe! It was a wonderful adventure. Some of the other place we have traveled include: Thailand, Mexico, Sweden, Iceland, Spain, and India!
We got engaged in 2015 while on vacation in Portugal. We had a very small wedding two years later with just a small group of friends and family. Afterwards, we celebrated with them in Portugal at the same place where we got engaged! For our honeymoon we took a trip to India and Sri Lanka for two weeks.
Together we love trying new restaurants, planning trips, quiet Sunday mornings, and hosting brunches with our friends. We have a great community of friends here in Washington DC, with lots of little ones around.
