Conor & Sarah
Family means everything to us. We are thrilled that you are reading our profile. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We hope that you can see how much we love one another and our families and how much love and support we have to give to a child.
Adoption in Our Lives
We talked about adoption as a way of growing our family even when we were just dating. We knew that we wanted to adopt a child because we both had experiences with adoption in our families. Adoption is truly valued in both of our families. Sarah's three youngest cousins are adopted and she enjoyed holding them as babies when they first arrived home with their adoptive parents. Now Sarah and her cousins enjoy family reunions and holidays together and her cousins now have children of their own. Conor has a cousin that is adopted as well, his cousin was adopted from Russia and he enjoyed spending Summers at the lake with her and her siblings. Sarah's has older cousins that adopted twin girls eight years ago and we have enjoyed watching their family make lasting memories together. We are fortunate to have amazing friends that have also actively pursued adoption, four families and five kids later our friend family continues to grow. We are blessed to have so much support from family and friends and know that a child would be greatly supported as well. It would be a privilege to parent a child through adoption.
Our Leisure Time
We spend a lot of time traveling. We road trip to Nebraska, Wisconsin and Minnesota to visit family. We fly to Texas to spend time with Sarah's parents. We have an annual trip to New York to visit Conor's brother, sister-in-law, niece and nephew. Colorado is one of our frequent travel locations as we love to ski, hike and bike. It is our goal to visit all 50 states and as many national parks as possible. We have also had the opportunity to travel abroad exploring China, Australia, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Morocco and Costa Rica. We look forward to continuing these adventures with a child.
We also share a love for sports. We both enjoy playing sports, watching our favorite teams and cheering on our nieces and nephews. We play co-ed recreational softball together every Summer with our friends. There is often a sporting event playing in the background on the TV or radio in our house. Conor is a die hard Green Bay Packer's fan and we tailgate with his family at least one game a year. Sarah's favorite sport is college basketball. Playing sports with our nieces and nephews is one of our favorite activities and soccer games can get pretty competitive and sweaty. We proudly support our nieces and nephews as they get involved in gymnastics, soccer, flag football and hockey. Sports can be such a great avenue for developing skills and relationships and we cannot wait to see a child experiencing new activities.
We think it is important to travel and learn about different cultures, languages and traditions. Conor grew up in a family rooted in German and Irish cultural traditions. Sarah enjoyed learning about her diverse cultural background including Irish, German and American Indian ancestors. Through travel to different states and countries, study aboard and volunteering we have had opportunities to learn about other cultures and embrace diversity. As a chef, Conor's father taught us that cooking and sharing food brings people from all cultures and backgrounds together. We live in a diverse neighborhood and it is important to us that a child grow up in an environment that celebrates diversity. We plan to learn about a child's heritage and cherish it. We will seek any cultural support a child may need. Our extended family's diversity has grown over the years through marriage and adoption. Our family loves one another and will love a child unconditionally.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in an urban suburban town on the edge of a large metropolitan city. Our neighborhood has award-winning schools and several parks and playgrounds. We are in walking distance of a small downtown area with shops and restaurants. We truly enjoy our neighborhood and all of its festivals and events, including live music in the park once a month as well as art and Bastille Day festivals annually. Conor recently hosted a birthday party for Sarah at the 104-year-old neighborhood bowling alley. We live nearby the largest urban park in the United States with a zoo, museums, fishing pond, golf course, bike trails and science center. There are so many great family activities in our city and neighborhood that we look forward to enjoying with a child.
We live in a two-story house on a quiet street that dead ends into the neighborhood elementary school. Our neighborhood is a small, diverse and tight knit community. Neighbors help one another and greet each other by first name. We love sitting by our fire pit and handing candy out to kids trick-or-treating each year. Our house sits on a double lot giving us a large yard to have a garden and play fetch with our dog Pete. We often host our family, friends and their children at our home playing soccer, hunting for Easter eggs and barbecuing. We cannot wait to see this child walk with friends to school each day from our home.
Our Extended Families
We are blessed to have large, close knit families. Sarah's mother once told her, "You are not just marrying the person, you are also marrying his family". Though our families do not live close-by we see them frequently whether we are traveling to them or hosting several house guests at our home. Conor has an older brother and two younger sisters. Sarah has an older brother and two younger brothers. We love talking or video chatting with our siblings, parents, nieces and nephews daily. We now have 8 nieces and nephews and frequently travel to see them to make sure we do not miss a birthday, first communion or soccer game. Our nieces and nephews are obsessed with each other and cannot wait to have another cousin to play with. We both enjoy our family's tradition of spending holidays together, even the 4th of July, and annual family vacations. We rotate holidays between our two extended families and Conor's family has a long-standing tradition of Christmas Eve mass followed by a huge Christmas Eve party that includes Conor's meatballs, tons of food and drinks, multiple fire places and dozens of friends and family. Recently, we traveled with Sarah's family to Arizona to escape winter weather and had a blast enjoying hiking, swimming and pre-season baseball with our nieces, nephews and siblings. Our families love and support one another and cannot wait to share these traditions and experiences with this child.

We hope that learning more about us will assure you of our promise to provide a safe, supportive and loving home for your child.
Conor is a partner at a company that builds, buys, manages and sells hotels. He enjoys the daily challenges and opportunities of a small franchise company. He has amazing knowledge of finance and development. Conor demonstrates incredible loyalty and commitment to his customers, partners and co-workers. Conor works near our home and has the flexibility to be available for any of the child's needs.
Sarah has her doctorate in physical therapy and works with adults with varying diagnoses from a brain injury to fractured hip. Sarah loves her work and the opportunity to help improve a person's quality of life. She recently transitioned into a role that involves education and quality assurance and often works from home. As our family grows we can adjust our responsibilities outside the home to meet the need of our child.
We have been married for 10 years and truly love and respect one another. We know that we have so much love to give a child. Even before our marriage we knew that we wanted a family of our own. We knew that adoption would be part of our plan to grow our family at some point. We have tried to have children for several years but have not been able to conceive biological children. We quickly knew that is was time to actively pursue adoption. We look forward to the amazing experience of adoption.
Family is important to us and we have cherished being Uncle Conor and Aunt Sarah to our nieces and nephews. Our families are very involved in our lives and are excited to have another child in the family. We are absolutely ready to have a child and become parents. Please know that we will love and support your child and our families will love this child unconditionally.
We value diversity in our community and welcome diversity in our family. We are committed to celebrating how we are different and the same with a child. We also plan to talk to the child about adoption from an early age and share this loving and positive experience.
We are so excited for the future. We cannot stop thinking about every aspect of becoming parents and sharing our life with a child. We look forward to developmental milestones, laughter in our home, family vacations and encouraging the child's interests while watching them grow.
We know you may have many questions and we hope that as you get to know us we can extinguish any fears you may have. We are excited for your role in the child's life and will support how you choose to be involved. We are thrilled to know that you and your family will become our family through adoption. We are committed to sending pictures, stories, letters and email updates of your child's life. We are also open to making arrangements for visits if desired. We cannot wait to get to know you and maintain a caring relationship. We respect and admire you and will make sure that our high regard and respect for you is shared with your child. There are no words to express our gratitude for the brave and selfless decision you have made out of love. Thank you for considering us to be parents of your child.
