Sarah and Anna are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Dear Birthmother,

Words cannot describe how grateful we are that you are taking the time to read through our profile. We know that through this selfless act, you may be facing a very difficult decision. As you read through our profile, we want to let you know that we intend to raise your child so that they always know that their family was chosen out of love by their birth mom. We are committed to raising this precious child in a home surrounded by incredible love, endless opportunities for adventure, and lots and lots of laughs. We have been dreaming of being mommies since the day that we met, and we are so excited for the journey that lies ahead. Thank you again for opening our book. We are looking forward to meeting you!

With Love,

Sarah and Anna

Sarah

Sarah is a kid at heart! She loves adventures, traveling, sports, reading and being outdoors. Sarah is a pediatric occupational therapist, and she works with children with special needs. She is loving, patient, kind and puts her whole heart into everything she does. Sarah has wanted children her entire life. She will be a great mom!

Anna

Anna loves all things great and small. She has a passion for taking care of the environment and animals. Anna is a branch manager for a wildlife company. She likes being outdoors, playing and listening to music, travelling and going on adventures. Anna is selfless, loving, compassionate and loves the little things in life. She is going to be such a great mom!

Our Story

We met in college, and we were friends for about 2 years before we started dating. We have now been together for 6 years. We are excited to start a family and share endless amounts of love with a little one (or two!).

Our Home

We live in a 4 bedroom home in a diverse neighborhood in the suburbs of Chicago. We live within steps of a community park, and within walking distance to the elementary school, an ice cream shop and the community farmers’ market.

Sarah’s Family.

Family

Sarah has a large immediate family. She has three brothers, one older and two younger. Sarah is very close to her brothers, and they get together often for game nights. Two of her brothers are in long-term relationships, and their significant others are a big part of the family as well. Sarah’s parents live within 30 minutes of Sarah and Anna, and they spend many weekends together. Sarah’s family likes to get together often for fun events such as taco Tuesdays, murder mystery parties, and local fairs. Sarah’s parents are ecstatic about the upcoming adoption and are waiting patiently to become grandparents for the first time.

Anna’s Family.

 

Anna also has a large immediate family. She has two siblings, one brother and one sister, both of whom are married. All of Anna’s siblings are so excited to become aunties and uncles. Anna and Sarah have one nephew, Caden, who they absolutely adore. Although Anna’s parents live about 2 hours away, they still get together several times each year and on holidays. Anna’s parents are excited to become grandparents for the second time!

Our Pets

Meet Gilbert! Gilbert is our 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd Mix. He is sweet, full of energy and loves to play. Gilbert is a certified therapy dog, so he can often be found at the clinic working with Sarah, helping to encourage the kids to do their best! Gilbert loves children and to be cuddled! Gilbert also likes to go on hikes with his moms, but his favorite thing to do is to go through the Starbucks drive-thru for a puppuccino!

In addition to our dog, Gilbert, we also have three cats named Ziggy, Stormy and Tippy. We also have a lizard named Kiwi and three chickens who give us fresh eggs named Lulu, Peppa and Doris. We love our animals!

Everyday Life

Children have a special way of adding joy to every day. In addition to loving on our nephew every chance that we get, we also love to spend time with the kids of our family friends. We often take them out for special date days, and they love coming over to Miss Sarah and Miss Anna’s house!

We love nature, going to the city, and just hanging out with our families. No matter what, it’s always a good time!

Travel

We love to travel whenever we can, and we hope to help our children explore the world by giving them opportunities to travel as well. Over the years, we have been to Florida, Las Vegas, Wisconsin, California, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Peru and Ecuador. We can’t wait to explore more of the world!

Friends

We have the most amazing friends! They are a very diverse bunch who come from all different backgrounds. Our friends are like our second family, and we can not be more grateful for the loving, compassionate and fun people that we know. Several of our friends are starting to have children of their own, and we can not wait to set up playdates!

Although we promise to let your child explore all of their life’s passions, whether it be soccer, dance, science club, art class, or whatever else their little heart desires, the most important thing that we can give to a child is a home where their mommies have an undying love for not only our little one, but also for each other. In our home, your child will never have to wonder what love means. We have plenty to share!!!

Thank You!

Thank you again, for taking the time to look through our book. Our hearts are full of love, gratitude and hope as we patiently wait for a little one to join our family. We hope that you find peace and guidance during this time, and we are looking forward to learning more about you and your hopes and dreams for your baby.

Love,

Sarah and Anna
