Thank you for taking the time to read our best attempt to give you a picture of who we are and who we can be. We are honored that you are considering us. We are so grateful and humbled by the role you may play in our lives and the role we hope to play in yours.
For us, adoption was an easy choice. Jenn was adopted as a newborn, and so we know firsthand how incredible and positive an adoptees life can be. We also know that adoption is not always an easy choice. It takes strength, selflessness and love to make this choice for your child. We support you. We would be honored to be with you in this process in whatever way you need us to be. We have an awesome family as well as a diverse and strong chosen family that love and support us and our decision to adopt. We hope to extend this love and support to you.
We would love to answer any questions that you may have for us. We know that this choice will connect you to us and our families forever and we are so excited for this relationship to grow. We recognize the selflessness and strength that you possess, and we hope that whatever decision you make, you feel supported and loved every step of the way.
Again, thank you for considering us to parent your child. We would love to hear from you and begin what could be the most incredible adventure of our lives. Very simply we are about family, love, fun, and adventure and are so excited to start our family.
Our relationship is full of laughter, adventures and ridiculous amounts of fun. We nurture and support each other through their hard days, and elevate and celebrate each other through their best ones.
Sarafina and Jenn both have killer work ethics. Sarafina works as a midwife and runs her own business, which allows for a flexible work schedule. Jenn works as a child and family therapist at a therapeutic day school, which allows for a predictable work schedule and all of the awesome school vacations.
When they are not working hard they are enjoying socializing with friends, spending time with their dogs, hosting game nights and barbeques, kayaking, and traveling to see their extended families. Sarafina enjoys cooking, and Jenn enjoys eating the food Sarafina cooks. Jenn enjoys bike riding and photography, but fortunately not at the same time.
Our home is located in a beautiful, diverse, and eclectic neighborhood filled with young, energetic families. We are surrounded by excellent playgrounds, parks, schools and restaurants all within walking distance. We are located minutes away from a city full of museums, history, green space, and festivals and parades that are fun for all ages. Our 3 bedroom home includes a fenced in front and backyard where our pups love to run and play. Pax is a 7 year old boxer who is gentle and loves kids! Tilly is an 8 year old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix (Chiweenie) and loves walks and being pet by everyone. Our 1 year old Sphinx cat is an incredible cuddler and will snuggle with anyone who is willing.
Our Extended Family
We have a tight-knit community that includes our extended families as well as our village of close friends and neighbors whom we consider our chosen family. Sarafina’s parents live a short plane ride away which makes frequent visits with them something we always look forward to. When together, we explore new restaurants and museums, stay up late catching up, and enjoy Sarafina’s dad's delicious cooking and music choices. Sarafina’s brother, his wife and their two children live slightly farther away in Hawaii. Visits with them are filled with laughter, sand castle building, and arts and crafts of all kinds.
Jenn's parents as well as her sister, brother-in-law, and their two kids live closer by, making frequent visits pretty easy. When together, we love to explore the outdoors - hiking, traveling, and creating adventures together.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted to grow our family through adoption. Jenn was adopted herself and the love that she has for both her birth family and her adoptive family would convince anyone that adoption is the way to go. She did not need to convince Sarafina though. Sarafina had dreamt of growing a family through adoption since she was a kid and knowing that Jenn wanted the same made their love and relationship even stronger. Our hearts have a lot of love to give and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to open our hearts to a child through adoption.
