Sean & Mari
Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to read through our profile. We are both so excited to become parents finally and to give a child a fun, loving home. Choosing us to be your child's parents would mean everything to us and we do not take your decision (or how difficult it must be) lightly. We look forward to getting to know you better and for the amazing journey ahead of us!
Our Leisure Time
We both really enjoy being active and in addition to hitting the gym a few times a week, we both enjoy a lot of hobbies outdoors. Mari has ridden horses her whole life and still tries to get to the stables now and then. She enjoys running and is always on the lookout for her next 5K.
Sean loves a good hike and the fresh air and views that come with it. He also loves learning new things and recently took up surfing but found out it's a lot harder than it looks!
We both love snowboarding in the winter and relaxing on the beach in the summer. Of course sometimes we can be found on the couch watching a series on Netflix or just reading a book.
We both like working around the house. Most recently, with Mari's vision and Sean's handy work, we built a beautiful island in our kitchen with a butcher's block top and even a wine fridge underneath! Last year we built a garden with all sorts of our own veggies to enjoy and share with our friends.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Mari About Sean: Sean is really handy, funny, smart, and thoughtful. He is very caring and is always offering to help friends move, assisting with house projects, or offering to do odd jobs for family. Sean thinks of the funniest ways to surprise me - I opened the fridge one morning to see every food item in the fridge staring back at me with plastic googly eyes! Sean has always been there for me when I really needed him. I've always known I could count on him to support me. We also have a very similar sense of humor which is great! We are constantly sending each other funny memes or articles throughout the day trying to make each other laugh. I've always felt very fortunate that I was able to find such a great match. I can't wait to get to experience being parents together!
Sean About Mari: Mari is everything I could ask for in a wife and everything I would wish for as a mother to our future family. She is intelligent, hardworking, patient, compassionate, and so much more. I knew she was special right from our very first date and 10 years later, I still see it daily how lucky I am. She is always encouraging me in whatever I am trying to do and supports me when I need it the most. Seeing her interact with our friends and family, and especially our friends children, consistently reinforces what an incredible mother she will be.
Our Pups, Winston & Tuco
We are both animal lovers. We both grew up with pets and really want that experience for your child as well. We have an 8-year-old Boxer named Winston and a 6-month-old French Bulldog named Tuco who we are crazy about! Winston has the sweetest, gentlest personality. He absolutely loves children always tries to give them kisses. Tuco is tiny but has a big, funny personality. He makes us laugh on a daily basis with his antics. We believe that having pets can help teach responsibility (when age appropriate) and gives an opportunity to have a wonderful bond with an animal. Both Tuco and Winston will be great first pets for the child we add to our family. We can't wait to watch them grow up together! Taking care of and training both dogs (especially during the puppy stages) has shown us how well we can work as a team to care for something other than ourselves.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a three-bedroom cozy little cape style home with a big back yard on the Seacoast of New Hampshire. With Mari's great sense for design and Sean's handiness, we love to do projects around the house or in the yard. Our small town is full of parks and wooded trails and we're only four miles from several different beaches. We're near Portsmouth, which is a lively town full of restaurants, shops, and community events like concerts or their annual Christmas parade. We have a great circle of friends in our area that all get together for holiday gatherings, beach walks with kids and dogs, and football Sundays. All of our friends have young children, so we're looking forward to your child being surrounded by friends to play games and go on adventures with!
In less than an hour drive we can be in Portland Maine, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, or Boston, Massachusetts. We look forward to taking your child into the city by train to Red Sox and Boston Bruins games when he/she is old enough! Our two dogs; Winston (an 8-year-old old Boxer) and Tuco (a 6-month-old French Bulldog) love children and can't wait for a new addition to our family!
Our Extended Families
Both sides of our family are thrilled for us to grow our family! This child will be the very first grandchild on both sides, and our siblings' first niece or nephew. They have SO many people excited to meet them and waiting to love on them!
Mari has a younger brother and two younger sisters who she is extremely close with. Mari sees her siblings several times a month and still has the occasional sibling sleepover hosted at her home. Mari and her siblings share a passion for Mexican food and go out for tacos as often as possible. Mari's mom lives 30 minutes away and her dad lives about an hour away. Both are retired and not so patiently waiting to babysit their future grandchildren! Every summer we go on vacation with Mari's family to their favorite lake in Maine for a week. This is something that the entire family looks forward to sharing with this child.
Sean's parents and his older sister all live nearby. He is especially close with his sister as evidenced by being "Man of Honor" at her wedding. They get together regularly to hike a mountain or just play some board games with friends. Sean enjoys riding motorcycles and playing guitar with his father and of course watching football on Sundays. Sean's mom is the go-to host for every holiday and also when his uncle visits from out of town.
From Us to You
Hello, our names are Sean and Mari (rhymes with "sorry"). Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and learn a little bit about us. We both respect your courage and strength in considering this decision for your child's future.
We have tried for five years to have a biological child of our own, but after several painful losses and numerous failed IVF cycles, we have decided that pursuing adoption is the best way to create our family. We cannot wait to share our life and love with a child.
We have been together for 10 years and married for a little over five years. Your child will be welcomed into our wonderful family and large friend circle. Our families are very close knit and cannot wait to include your child on family vacations to the lake, trips to our local children's museum, and sporting events. Our families are incredibly supportive of our decision to adopt and are anxiously awaiting their new family member! Both of our parents and our many siblings will be very involved in your child's life. We are very fortunate to have a great support system around us and many people awaiting the first grandchild/niece or nephew into our family.
It will be important to us that your child be exposed to all sorts of different activities and experiences so that they can discover and pursue what they are passionate about. Sean is excited to teach your child as they grow; from learning to read and write, to how to fix things around the house, to driving their first car. Mari can't wait to share her love of animals with your child and to take him or her on adventures to the city, beach, or mountains near our home. We both look forward to teaching your child the importance of having a strong moral compass and helping them to become a confident, intelligent and compassionate person.
We would love to be able to send you letters, emails, and photos of your child as he or she grows so that you are able to see how loved your child is and the type of person they are becoming. We also would be open to in-person visits and on-going contact in whatever form works best. We plan on sharing as much about you with your child as you are comfortable with. We want your child to know where they come from and how brave their birth parents are to allow us to raise their child. We both respect you so much for your strength in being able to make this decision and that is something we will share from the beginning with your child. We are committed to working together to provide your child with the healthiest, happiest life.
We also need to thank you for giving us the gift of finally being able to become parents. Having a child is something we have wanted with all our hearts for a very long time and we cannot express enough how grateful we are to you for this amazing opportunity.
With much love,
Sean & Mari
