A home filled with laughter and love

Hi! We are Anna and Sean.

Since we met online, we couldn’t think of a better way to connect with our future family. And you read that correctly – family. We hope to pursue an open adoption and establish the relationship between the birth family and the adoptive family, but we are open and flexible if that is not for you.

We have always dreamed of being parents, and are excited for the life-long fulfilling journey that it will be. Our hearts are as big as our smiles - we love to laugh and enjoy life and are looking forward to raising a child to embrace life and all its opportunities.

Thanks for taking the time to read our profile - we hope it offers the information you are seeking while making such an important decision. Please don't hesitate to ask us questions, and we look forward to connecting with you.

Who We Are

Sean and I met through an online dating site in 2009. We instantly connected and really haven't looked back since! We had to overcome a little distance but finally came together and were married in 2012.

Our life is filled with love, laughter, and adventure. We enjoy spending time together and appreciate the little things that make us laugh. We love to travel and explore new places. And we love each other and work to make our lives together the best we can give to each other.

Our families are very important to us and shaped who we are today. We both come from large families and cherish the time we can spend together. Sean and I have experienced adoption our whole lives with family members who were adopted.

We are both fortunate enough to pursue our passions as our careers. Anna is an environmental consultant and Sean works in the beer industry.

We always discussed having a family together, but were not successful. After much consideration, we determined adoption is the right path for us.

Adoption Diary

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s Mother’s Day!  This year has me thinking about three people.  First my mother, Angela.  She passed away in 2018 from cancer, and she was my best friend.  I miss her every day. She was a labor and delivery nurse for the first part of her 40-year nursing career, and a nurse practitioner in a family medicine office.  She loved working with babies, children, moms, and expectant moms.  I know she desperately wanted to be a grandmother, and I only wish I could have made that dream come true before she passed.  She was also a great role model to be a mom.  Many of us tend to realize later rather than sooner that the things that were impressed on us growing up have such a large impact.  That is true of growing up with my parents.  They really taught us so many things to allow us to be independent.  I value the things that my mother shared with me and made me a better person.

I am also thinking about you, expectant mother.  I honestly cannot imagine what you are thinking about expecting a child and visiting a site like Adoptimist.  I imagine the idea of “mother’s day” is a little awkward at this time.  I think I would be a little scared, a little confused and probably pretty overwhelmed – and all of it is okay to feel.  I don’t know all the right things to say here, but know that there is a network of people just like me waiting to invite you into their lives.  Sean and I would like to pursue an open adoption, which means you too would become a part of our lives along with your child.  If not us, there are so many others that you would be helping to realize their dreams.  You have so much power to do to good here.

Lastly, I am thinking of myself.  I dream that next year is my first official Mother’s Day.  We have tried to conceive a child of our own since we got married in 2012.  We started down the fertility treatment path and did not encounter success.  The next steps were expensive and medically invasive, and we decided to consider other options. We had always discussed adoption, and finally determined this is the path for us.  Adoption may seem like a difficult decision, but really for us, it was one of the most natural.  We have adopted family members and members of our “extended” family that are not blood relatives, but nevertheless a true part of what we consider to be family.  We cannot wait to add to our family and hope to meet you soon.

Thanks for reading.  And Happy Mother’s Day.

Sharing our excitement!

Today we shared with a larger group of friends and family our news to adopt.  We know the process might take a while, and hope that our network of friends and family can help.  It’s an exciting and anxious time.  We can’t wait to be parents, but also are not sure when it will happen!  Whenever it does, we are ready.  We are ready for this new little person to join us, to grow with us, and to see what he or she will become.  How exciting, right?  We cannot wait.  thanks for reading.
