Sara and Sarah

Hello! Warm greetings from Southern California, we are Sara and Sarah!

We’re so grateful you’re taking a moment to get to know us. We want you to know we have a happy home, full of unconditional love, meaningful connection, lots of laughter and grateful hearts. Our life together has been a wonderful adventure, built on a strong foundation of love. Adoption has always been our first choice, we knew in the early days of our relationship this is how we wanted to create our family. We want you to know that we’re committed to being the best possible parents. We have so much love in our family and we can’t wait to share our hearts with our future child. Our hope is that in these pages you’ll be able to see into our hearts and begin to know who we are and who we may become to you and to your child. We’re excited to know you and to walk with you, together, through this remarkable journey.

Our Life Together, How We Became the Sara(h)’s!:

We have known each other since we were kids! Fast forward many years later, we saw one another at a dinner party and we were instantly connected! Soon we began dating and our relationship grew easily into a deep and profound love for one another. Our families were so excited for us and in 2007 everyone joined us at our wedding in British Columbia. We make each other laugh all the time. Even when doing simple things like playing with our dogs or listening to music while cooking breakfast, we have so much fun together. We are light-hearted and playful. We’re grateful to have a connected and balanced marriage and friendship. We’re an awesome team and whatever the situation, we always lovingly support and cheer each other on. We value our time to connect daily and we love sharing dinner together every night. We look forward to gathering around the dining room table with our future child as we share about our day. We are spiritual and heart-centered. We believe in kindness, compassion, hope, patience and generosity. We try to be our best selves in our home, in our work and with each other. We attend Sunday services and volunteer at Seaside Spiritual Center.

We have fun together no matter where we go or what we do! We enjoy being part of our community with local activities from theater to street fairs. We love to travel and explore new places. One of our favorite things to do is watch movies while snuggling with our puppies. We love the holidays and all the seasonal traditions! Every year we drive away from the city to pick a Christmas tree and in the summers we pick strawberries. We can’t wait to help our little one pick out their first bright orange pumpkin! We also love to kayak and spend time at the beach. We’re so excited for sandy feet and white sunscreen noses, giggles and laughter as we build sand castles and explore tide pools with our child.

Our Home and Closing Thoughts

Home is Where Our Heart Is: Our home is our heart-center and we love spending time in our warm, loving and welcoming home. Our kitchen overlooks our backyard and it is the daily cornerstone of our life filled with music, conversations and cooking. We chose this house because we knew it would be a wonderful place to raise our future child. We can’t wait for spring picnics together in the backyard, helping our little one plant seeds in the garden and playing basketball together in our courtyard. We imagine mornings with our child exploring, painting and coloring and afternoons in our kitchen creating healthy meals together. We’re excited for long summer days, our kids swimming in the pool and warm evenings discovering the stars. Our community has many outdoor family activities. We love the family concerts and movies in the park during the summer months and Christmas magic with horse-drawn wagon rides, twinkling lights and singing carolers. Our neighborhood elementary school is just down the street and is one of the best school districts in our State. We feel very grateful to live near so many parks that are filled with amazing kid activities. Near our home are baseball fields, basketball courts, skate parks and an aquatic center. We look forward for our child’s first swim class, art class or basketball game.

Puppy Love: Lucy our red and white Beagle has lots of joyful energy. She’s curious and silly and up for snuggles anytime. She loves to swim and everyday during the summer she jumps into our pool to cool off. Nigel our rescued Bichon-Poodle loves playing or sitting on your lap. He’s sweet and gentle, and  just wants to be with everyone. He’ll happily play dress up or cuddle up while we read our books.

Thank You:

We see this shared journey ahead, filled with immense love and we welcome you with open hearts. We want you to know, even more than all the adventures we hope to have with our future child, what we’re most looking forward to are the simple everyday moments: washing messy hands, comforting tears, reading bedtime stories, eating breakfast before school, helping with homework, and singing soft lullabies while rocking our little one to sleep.
