Hello! Our names are Sara and Lauren. We truly admire your strength and courage in considering adoption. We have always wanted to adopt and envision a diverse family.
We can assure you that your child’s life with us will be anything but dull. The 14 years we have spent together have been a series of adventures. Lauren worked on fishing boats in the Bering Sea and flew aerial wildlife surveys for muskox while Sara studied seals in an Eskimo village. Together we have explored over 20 National Parks from the high arctic to the desert, hiked amid the glaciers and hot springs of Iceland, and kayaked among manatees. Our adventures will not end when we adopt a child – they will be different, and better. We cannot wait to watch our child explore new places and cultures, try new foods, hear new languages and music.
Our home life will also provide our child with a wealth of wonderful experiences. We live in a beautiful and spacious country home in a small, rural community. Our children will have many acres of woods and fields where they can explore and play. We can already picture them picking fresh veggies from the garden, climbing our apple trees, hunting for eggs in the chicken coop, and playing in the stream that runs through our woods. We envision reading beautiful books to them in the evenings, gazing at Saturn’s rings through our telescope, and cooking s’mores in our fire pit. Our home will be filled with the aroma of home-cooked meals, the love of our close-knit extended families, and the laughter of children.
We hope that you will take the time to learn more about us by reading our letter. If you choose, we’d be happy to meet with you so that we can get to know each other better. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents. To learn more about us, check out our letter below:
