Discussing Adoption

Hiking in The Badlands with The Family

Although infertility has been a challenge for us over the last several years, we have talked about the idea of adoption for the past decade. We want to more than anything to build our family and share our love with a child. What ultimately led us to choose adoption for building our family is the far reaching positive impact that it has; helping the child, the birth mother, and ourselves in turn. What held us back from adopting sooner was the significant financial resources that adoption requires. We had to plan ahead and make sure that we could find room budget the process. Once we sorted out our budget, adoption was the clear choice for our family.

Talking to children about their adoption helps them to understand their story and allows them to make sense of their world. We believe that is important to make adoption a household word from the beginning. It is important that the child know from a very early age that he/she was born into the world the same way as everyone else, and that the amazing woman they grew inside of wasn't ready or able to be a mother to any baby at that time. It's important that the child know that this was a decision that this was not made lightly, and that it was a very honorable thing to do. We will tell the child that we wanted to be parents so much, so we over the moon to adopt them. We will share the fact that we are honored and thankful that they could join our family and share our love.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Sean is the most loving person I have ever met. His heart knows no bounds, and he is a warrior for the down trodden. Sean really cares about everyone. He works hard to make sure that the people around him feel happy and loved. Sean loves people fiercely for who they are. Sean is a hard working, kind, and compassionate man. One of my favorite things about him is that everyone he meets has good things so say about him. I admire that Sean would rather fix things around the house than get new stuff. He is ridiculously funny, and a great cook too.

Jasmine is the best friend I have ever had, it's that simple. I could never in a million years have asked for a better partner in my life. She regularly makes me laugh so hard that I fear I may choke. She brings joy to everything we do and every day is even more lovely than the last. While she is playful and hilarious, she is also intelligent, open minded and willing to listen with the intent to understand. She is a great adventurer and is always ready to try new things, whether it be braving a river in a kayak, exploring a state park or popping the cardboard loose on a new board game. She knows the honest and pure value of savoring a hot mug of tea on a cold evening, while reading a good book. 

Cultural Heritage

We love to travel with our family, and look forward to the opportunity of exposing our child to diverse cultures at a young age. If we are lucky enough to adopt a child of another culture, we will travel to areas significant to their culture. This will enable us to experience their heritage first hand.

We plan to research the child's specific culture and heritage, and celebrate it. We can do this through attending cultural events, meeting with local groups, celebrating holidays, and decorating rooms in our house with items of significance. One way that we love to celebrate our own cultural heritage is through cooking, and we are so looking forward to learning about the dishes and history of the child's heritage and incorporating them into our every day lives. Also, we will learn about the area of the child's origin, and discuss current events in that country/region regularly.

Our Extended Families

The Family on The Bremerton Ferry

Our families are so excited to share their abundance of love with this child. Sean's family live in Arizona, but we make trips back and forth to visit each other at least annually. Jasmine's family live mostly in Oklahoma, but we make make it a priority to see each other several times a year. Andy (Jasmine's brother) shares a home with us in the beautiful state of Washington, where we love to play board games and go camping and hiking. Sean's daughters are both educators and they live in Washington, too. As a group, we all love to travel, cook out, and play games together.

The Family on The Bremerton ferry Hiking with Family and Friends Our families just visited for two weeks and we went salmon fishing, sight seeing, and had fun at many u-pick fruit farms. It was a blast. Our families always come to visit us on the holidays, because we live near a very popular Christmas Village. Our house is large and welcoming, and we have enough room and beds for everyone. We love baking and sledding as a family in the winter. In the summer, we have just as much fun hiking, swimming, and kayaking together.

Each member of our family is so happy about welcoming this child into our family, and cannot wait to share their love, laughs, hugs, and kisses.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

Washington - We hail from the state Washington, and are very lucky to live in a beautiful Bavarian chalet style home in a vacation wonderland. We live in a rural setting, and our home is surrounded by mountains and backed by national forest. Our house has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our favorite rooms in the house are the kitchen, the living room, and the deck - all of the places people congregate. We love living remotely, so that we can enjoy the outdoors with our dogs, barn cats, and chickens.

We live near a Bavarian Village nestled in the heart of the Cascade mountains which is has many festivals through the year. Some of these festivals include the Festival of Lights, the Autumn Leaf Festival, Oktober Fest, and the Spring Bird Fest. Our community calendar is jam packed with activities for the whole family!

Aside from the from the festivals, our area provides many opportunities for fun and enrichment. There are many beautiful lakes, rivers, and mountains right outside our door. Our community is deeply agricultural, and we enjoy fresh picked fruit throughout the spring, summer, and fall. There is truly something for everyone in our area.

From Us to You

Hello, Beautiful Expecting Mother!

Thank you. We can't say that enough. We don't know what led you down the path to make this incredibly hard and selfless decision for your baby. What we do know, without a shadow of a doubt, is that you are loved, and you are brave. You don't know us yet, but we a have been thinking a lot about you for awhile now.

We are Jasmine and Sean, and we are honored that you are considering our family. We have a wonderful home that looks out over a picturesque valley at the foot of the Cascade mountains, and it is filled with love, laughter, and cute, cuddly critters. Sharing our slice of peace and serenity would be our dream come true.

The path that led us here, to this very point in time, has been a long and steady journey. When first met and when we got married, we knew that we wanted to grow our family, and to share our love. We went back to school, saved our money, changed careers. After 5 years together, we were ready to start our family. We spent several years struggling with infertility. That's when we knew, we needed to choose a path that could help as many people as possible - we needed to choose adoption.

We know that this is a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your baby. No doubt, you have a lot of nerves about this process - we do, too. You want what is the best for your baby - we do, too. One thing that has been pressed upon our hearts is the very real struggle that you have and will go through with this process. We know that you are incredibly courageous, and we are excited to meet you. We hope that you feel supported and loved, no matter where you are in your journey.

If you choose our family for your adoption plan, we want to assure you that we promise to respect you. We promise to cherish and love your child unconditionally with our hearts and souls. We will provide a safe and happy home and life with every possible opportunity. We will provide your child with emotional and financial support, a safe and stable home, and a good education. We will support your child's interests, where ever they may lay.

As a couple, we have been together for 10 years, and married for 7, it feels like we’ve only begun. We enjoy our lives together in the purest and deepest sense and share happiness and love in everything we do. We will provide a loving network of family and friends, a home filled with fun and happiness, and the dedication needed for a great and successful life. It would be our honor and privilege to share what we've made.

We promise to send you letters and pictures through out our journey. If you are willing, we would be happy to send emails. We are excited to learn more about you, and to share what we learn with your child.

Thank you for considering us. Thank you for your time. Thank you for your bravery. No matter where this journey takes you and no matter where you choices fall, know this: You are loved. You are beautiful. You are brave.

Wishing you all of the best,

Sean & Jasmine

We moved to Alaska when I was just a young kid. When I was six years old on Christmas morning we all got sleds and hand knit hats and mittens. We spent the morning sledding, even though it was completely dark outside because we were up in Alaska.

Memory with a Child
Canoeing with my kids. They were sitting in the front of a canoe and we paddled through lillypads, and they would reach out and pick the flowers. It was like something out of a fairy tale.
Hiking with my neices. They were so goofy and fun. My youngest neice found a neat stick she carried everywhere. She got her shoes and socks so muddy while playing with dogs on the trail that she took her socks off and hung them off of her hiking stick.
Memory with Spouse
Our first date - we went to the Space Needle. It was very windy and dark, and we walked around in the rain while holding hands. We ate chili cheese tots and chicken wings. It was awesome.
Vacationing with in Hawaii. That's where Sean proposed. We were snorkeling every day, and the humback whales where mating in area. Every time we went underwater we could hear them sing.
