We recognize the extremely difficult decision that you are currently facing, and we hope that getting to know us and the life we enjoy together will lead you to the right decision for your child.
We met through a mutual friend six years ago, and we got married in October 2017. Sarah was drawn to Toby’s laidback and comfortable nature. He is genuinely interested in every person he meets, and after only a few moments, you feel like you’ve known him forever. For Toby, it was Sarah’s optimism and compassion that sealed the deal. She is also quick to laugh, which was great because Toby is always ready with a witty observation or silly joke!
We just bought a new house with plenty of room to run around in the backyard. We like to keep busy by playing on a recreational soccer team and enjoying the outdoors by gardening and hiking. We also like exploring new places, especially National Parks. Our favorite trip together was San Francisco, where we went sightseeing and ate our way through the city.
When we’re not out exploring, we spend a lot of time in our kitchen. From Asian to Italian, we are always trying new recipes, cooking for family gatherings, or entertaining on our deck. Sarah is also an avid baker, a passion that she learned from her mother and grandmother and that she hopes her kids will enjoy as well.
While we were initially saddened by the news of not being able to conceive, we’ve known for a long time that adoption would be how we would create our family. Sarah was adopted from South Korea as an infant and has always known that being a parent, however it happened, would be her priority.
Both of our families are supportive of our adoption journey, and we feel especially blessed to have our parents and most of our siblings within a 25-mile radius of where we live. We have a fun and reliable group of friends in both the local area and out-of-state. Along with our families, we have a solid support network to support our growing family through every moment of laughter and joy as well as the inevitable bumps and bruises.
Warmest wishes, Toby and SarahView Profile Book
