We are Scott and Sarah. We have a sweet and sassy six year old daughter Emma and a three year old fur baby, our dog Max. Our prayer is that this letter will be a glimpse into our lives, our story, our family. We want you to be able to get to know us, our personalities, our friends and family, and our desire to give your child a loving, caring family. We want you to know that we admire your selflessness, love, and courage and whatever decision you make we pray that you feel supported every step of the way. Thank you for taking time to read our profile and getting to know our family. We are so blessed to begin this adoption journey.
We want to begin be telling you how grateful we are to you. The selfless decision you are making will forever change the life of a family, maybe even ours. We cannot begin to understand how difficult this decision must be for you; however, we want you to know that we have the upmost respect for you as you begin the journey of finding the perfect family for your child. Even though we do not know you yet, we, along with our family and friends, have been praying for you and your precious baby for a long time.
Our parental journey has had its challenges along the way; however, these challenges have only strengthened our love for each other, our faith in God, and our deep desire to add to our family. Adoption has been dear to our hearts from the beginning of our marriage. We have always yearned to adopt and are thrilled to have this dream become a reality.
We want you to know that we want to walk this journey beside you. We want to hear your hopes and dreams for your baby, and we will always strive to provide your child with a supportive, loving, and caring family. Thank you for loving your baby so deeply. We hope to get to meet you, learn about you, and let you see more of who we are.
About Us And How We Met
Our story began a little over 15 years ago in high school. We were high school sweethearts, even though we didn't attend the same high school. We met at church and started dating a few months later. We knew we wanted to be together even though college took us in different directions, making us have to live away from each other for a little while. We married when we were 19 and 20 years old. Over the past 11 years we have been loving and living our life together. We have been together through high school, college, starting our dream jobs, graduate degrees, and many other adventures. In 2010, we were blessed with a sweet baby girl, Emma, who has had quite the journey in life due to some health issues she has. The last 11 years has brought us closer together, and deepened our love for each other. We are now ready to embark on a new journey in our lives by adding a precious baby to our family.

Scott wants you to know what he loves about Sarah: My wife Sarah is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. It is an honor and a true blessing to call her my wife. Let me explain to you why I say that. Sarah is a Christian woman. This means she has a very good foundation for morals and values, because she finds those through the words of God. She has been a rock for me at times when I have needed someone. I have watched as she has shown so much compassion, care, love, kindness, patience, and so many other attributes to people around her. And those qualities that I just mentioned don't just exist with people around her; no they are overly abundant in our family. She is not just my wife, but my best friend. She is my helper, my person I confide in. She loves with all of her heart with nothing left to give. She pushes me to be my best. She cares in ways I will never know how to. Her happiness makes the whole room smile. I can't even begin to write enough words to describe how amazing she is, but I will say just that. She is amazing, and I'm abundantly blessed that she is my wife.
Now, let me move into how she is as a mother. Her heart is so big, so loving, and so caring. She has amazing patience. She has a desire to see Emma succeed, and she pushes her to, while loving her and helping her all the way through that. She is dedicated and completely invested in being a mother. There are days where, I will just sit there and watch Emma and her. Thinking to myself how truly blessed I am to have such a loving and caring wife, and for Emma to have such a committed, helpful, compassionate, and loving mother. I just want to say having said all the above, that your child will no doubt be loved with all of Sarah's heart, Emma's heart, and my heart, and will truly be an answered prayer for our family.

Sarah wants you to know what she loves about Scott: Scott is an incredibly amazing husband and father. He works hard to provide for his family, so that I can have my dream job as a stay-at-home mom. His carefree spirit, never-meet-a-stranger personality, infectious laugh, and caring heart, are just a few traits that I deeply admire. First and foremost, he loves God. His Christian values guide his decisions and how he leads our family. He has a heart for helping others and is constantly volunteering at church and in the community to give back. He also loves to travel. We love to go camping at the lake, take cruises, go snow skiing, etc.
One of my favorite attributes about Scott is his role as a dad. Scott has shown incredible strength, unwavering love, and tender care, to our little girl, and he is so excited about adding another precious baby to our family. He is very involved in every aspect of our child's life and loves to come home from work and play, sing silly songs, and create special moments that are specific to "daddy." Scott has so much love to give and I know without a doubt that he will be the perfect dad to our future child and give him or her a wonderful, love-filled, adventure-filled, opportunity-filled life.
Emma is our spunky, sassy, sweet, smiley five-year-old little girl. Emma was born with a congenital heart defect and has overcome many health obstacles to be where she is today. In spite of everything she has been through, she has a smile on her face almost all day long. She brings an abundance of joy to our family. She loves life and is truly our little sunshine. We have no doubt that she will be the absolute best big sister. She loves playing with her younger cousins and friends of all ages.
Emma loves: music (especially Disney songs, Pentatonix, and Home Free), learning her letters and numbers, spelling, her stuffed kitty cat, going on car rides, time with her family (especially Grampa), bubbles, books, animals (Zoo and Farm), and of course, her puppy Max.
Meet Max! He is our really hairy boy in our family. He is a 3 year old dog that we adopted from a local humane society as a puppy. He has brought so much joy to our little family. He loves to go on car rides, Sonic hot dogs, swimming, playing catch, and playing with his sister, giving her lots of kisses. He is great with kids, and loves when they chase him around the back yard.
Our Family And Friends
Our family is our biggest support system. We are truly blessed to have such a close knit family. Our family enjoys going to the lake, attending sporting events, celebrating holidays, singing together, and just spending quality time laughing and having fun together. We are very blessed to live relatively close to our families. This allows us to be able to spend a lot of time together with great grandparents, grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and siblings. Our family is extremely supportive of our decision to adopt. They are so excited and ready to love this new baby.
We have an amazing group of friends that live near us and a little distance from us. We consider our friends like family. We raise our children together, attend church together, vacation together, attend events together, and so much more. Our friends are so excited for us as we embark on this new journey. They are ready to welcome this sweet baby with open arms, and are already joining us in praying for you and the baby.
We live in a wonderful suburb. We are located near many beautiful parks, lakes, museums, sporting activities, and delicious restaurants. Our nice quiet neighborhood is filled with a diverse population of families. Our family enjoys walking around the neighborhood, pulling Emma in a wagon, taking Max on walks, and playing at the neighborhood park.
A home to us is more than four walls with the roof; however, we have worked hard to make our house into the perfect home for our family. We have a kid friendly/kid centered playroom upstairs and a nice big backyard perfect for picnics, playing catch, and running around. We all love to cook and enjoy making memories while cooking and preparing food in the kitchen.
In preparation for bringing home a precious baby, we have begun working on the nursery. It brings us so much joy to create the perfect space for the baby. Our hearts and home are ready for this new adventure.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for taking time to get to know us through this letter. We hope you know that we are ready to open our hearts and home to love and cherish a precious baby. We look forward to raising this baby to be the best person he or she can be. We will always strive to teach them to be caring, loving individuals who have a heart for serving God and others. We long for the memories we will make, the laughs we will share, and the tears we will dry. We promise you that your child will be loved as our own and will grow up knowing the amazing sacrifice his/her mother made. May you feel loved and cared for as you make this incredibly selfless decision.
