Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Samantha About Sean: Sean has a great sense of humor, is friendly, positive, funny, a jokester, and the one that the kids always gravitate towards. He loves kids and spent many summers as a camp counselor in Maine teaching sports including basketball, baseball, soccer, boating, rock climbing and also led various camping trips into the wilderness. He is from a very close-knit family, and always puts his family and friends first. He is calm under pressure, loyal, and solid as a rock. I love how he calls his parents in Australia every day, as well as regularly calling his siblings and nieces in Australia no matter how busy he is. When he is with his nieces or my nephews I see a concrete example of what a great father would look like.
Sean About Samantha: Samantha is such a positive person with such a love for life. She is a very loving, loyal and caring person, with a great sense of humor. She has the most infectious laugh and brings joy to those around her. She is such an empathetic and caring person evident in her career as a special needs teacher where she provides an education to non-verbal teenagers, including feeding them, changing their diapers, nurturing them and showing them love.

By the way she treats her students, friends and family including young nieces and nephews, it is undeniable she will make an awesome mother.
Fun Facts About Us
Our Extended Families
Samantha has two sisters and one of them an identical twin, she comes from a close-knit family who love to gather for meals and holidays. Her family has a unique August birthday celebration where there are five birthdays in five consecutive days. We love to gather for crawfish boils, family vacations in Texas, playing games such as the current favorite, Farkle (a type of dice game). With Samantha's parents living 45 minutes away near the water, you can often find us spending time with the rest of the family on weekend staycations swimming, boating, crabbing or cooking.
Sean's immediate family includes his parents, two brothers and two sisters who are all based in Australia. Despite the distance, we visit Australia regularly and his immediate family often visits us in Texas. Sean calls his family daily to check-in, share a laugh and talk to his two nieces. When back home, we love to eat traditional Australian food such as meat pies, sausage rolls and fish & chips. Sean's family loves sporting events, wildlife parks, beaches, camping and fishing.
Our families are excited about the possibility of sharing their love with a new family member, not bounded by distance.
Our House and Neighborhood
We feel lucky that our hard work and sacrifices allowed us to move to the quiet suburbs of Texas in 2021, into our dream home that we could see ourselves growing our family in. It is a spacious two-story family home with four bedrooms at the end of a cul-de-sac. We have a large fenced backyard and spacious front yard. We have an open floor plan from the kitchen, dining room to the living room which is where we spend most of our time.
We chose this community because it is close to our friends/family and it is a great place to raise a family. Within walking distance is our neighborhood community pool, walking trails, lakes, soccer fields and playground. The elementary and middle schools are just outside our neighborhood and the high school is connected to our neighborhood. You will often see kids of all ages riding bikes, playing football, soccer, baseball and tag. You can also hear the marching band practicing from the high school.
Our neighborhood celebrates events such as Christmas, Easter, Lunar New Year, Halloween and International Day. Our community includes family events such as ice cream socials, movie nights and food truck nights.
From Us to You
First of all, we would like to say from the bottom of our hearts "Thank you." Thank you for even considering us to share our lives, our love and our laughter with this special gift which we have dreamt so long for. To choose us to be this child’s parents would be the biggest gift. We admire your bravery, your selflessness and courage it would take to make this decision, but hopefully we can give you comfort to know this child would be loved endlessly and unconditionally. To be chosen to be this child's parents would mean the world to us. We are both so excited with the prospect of becoming parents, as well as our families and friends to welcome another loved one into the mix.
We are so excited about taking this journey together, and are thankful to you again to even explore this opportunity with us.
To share a little bit about ourselves, we have been married for five years, been together as a couple for eight years and known each other for ten years. We are excited with what lies ahead in our future together and look forward to the idea of having a family together.
We both have multiple siblings and we know that we want to be parents to have our own family with multiple children. We want to share our love and give our love which we have in abundance. We have dreamt of starting our family for a few years now and super excited about the prospect. Unfortunately it has not come naturally to us and have had some obstacles but that is what has lead us here with you. The processes has made us even stronger together in our relationship with various miscarriages, completing multiple rounds of IVF, egg retrievals and transfers it has made our determination even stronger to have a child and family together.
Samantha's family does not have a young child and they are excited about the possibility of having a baby around to spoil. Samantha's parents' youngest grandson is 15 and can't wait to have a little one to enjoy in the laughter and learning new things in life.
Sean's brother has two young kids, who both are super excited to grow and have cousins to play with. The new Grandparents are overcome with joy about the possibilities. The other aunts and uncles can't wait to have another niece or nephew to make laugh and teach new things too. Already they spoil their nieces Charlotte and Phoebe with trips to the beach and swimming pools, adventure playgrounds, sporting events and various day trips.
We are super excited about becoming parents, especially the simple moments like reading bedtime stories and tucking them in at night, playing in the rain, having giggle fits and being the first ones they see when they wake up in the morning. We look forward to celebrating their first steps, first words, going to school, being spoiled by grandparents as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. We look forward to hopefully getting to know you and your family as part of this journey and to share in the life of this blessed child. We are open to sharing the development of this child either through visits, sharing pictures and emails, and open to having them know their biological origins.
Again Thank you so much for reading this and considering us.
Sean & Samantha
