Love, not biology, is what connects us at our core and makes us thrive. Every family has a story, welcome to ours!

Hi there!

We are Sara and Ryan, we have been married for two years and we cannot wait to grow our family! Right now our family consists of the two of us, our daughter Kamryn, from Ryan’s previous marriage, and our two dogs, Max and Penny.

Kamryn is with us every other weekend. She's in 5th grade and she cannot wait to be a big sister. As soon as we shared our adoption plan with Kam, she was all in. She regularly talks about the things she would like to do with a younger brother or sister, like read to them or teach them to swim.

Adoption felt like the right fit for us from the start – to us, love is what makes a family, not biology. Sara has an adopted cousin and Sara’s best friend has two young children who are adopted. We also have a family friend that has four children through the foster-to-adopt process.

Our family is built with love, compassion, humor, and joy. From this point on, your act of love will forever be a part of our family story as well.

We can only imagine all of the questions you have as you make a decision that feels worthy of your child. We would love to connect with you and talk about what we are able to provide your child – a life filled with loving support, opportunity, family, and countless adventures. We also want to hear about your vision for being a part of our family, too.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Who We Are

We met in college and stayed in touch as friends afterwards, but something finally clicked a few years ago. Ryan asked Sara if she wanted to get together and catch up over some french fries (seriously), and we have been together ever since. We have been married for over two years and we are so excited to grow our family!

Ryan works for the Department of Justice, focusing on violent crimes in our area that involve firearms. Sara works for the Health & Wellness team of Cigna Health Services, advising employers on how they can do things to support and improve the health and wellness of their employees – for example, providing flu shots or creating a lactation room.

Running is a big part of who we are and what we do. We are both marathon runners and running coaches. Ryan has volunteered as a coach for at-risk middle school kids in Richmond. Sara has volunteered as a coach for the United Nations Foundation Team Girl Up. We also travel with friends on running vacations to run in races around the United Stated as a way of exploring the country in an up close way.

We have a lot of flexibility in our schedules and often work from home or flex our schedules to manage things around the house. In the evening, we often go for a run together to catch up on our days and get in a work out.

Ryan’s daughter, Kamryn, is with us every other weekend. She is in 5th grade and really into dancing, crafts and Harry Potter books. When Kam is in town we make sure we spend time with family to keep those bonds tight. Our nephews and and Ryan's mom live 10 minutes away, so Kam has a grandparent, two uncles, an aunt and two cousins to see when she is here.

Ryan and Kamryn often go fishing together or create scavenger hunts for each other around our neighborhood. As a family, we love watching movies together, going for a hike, and we can’t wait for March Madness to roll around.

We love to travel and try new things! Some of our favorite things to do include going to baseball games, soccer games, hiking with the dogs, trying new restaurants, and going to the museums. We are also members of the Maymont Park, a 100-acre park in Richmond with a zoo that helps rehabilitate wounded animals. They also host summer camps. Last summer Kamryn attended a young animal keepers camp at Maymont and loved it!

Adoption Diary

Quesadilla Night with the Cousins

We live about 10 minutes away from our nephews, so whenever Kam is in town we make a point of getting in some cousin time. Tonight that included quesadillas, puzzles, and a lot of laughter!

Living Near the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

Living near the VMFA is even more amazing than we expected! We bought a house in the neighborhood over a year ago and have walked our dogs to the museum almost every day since. It’s so great walking around seeing families enjoying picnics, dogs chasing a ball, and people reading on benches. It feels like a park with the added bonus of having a museum as well. The museum holds special events for the community with arts and crafts for children, food trucks, and music.  This morning we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise on our walk.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Ryan & Sara
