S: Earl and Sean

FC: Earl | & | Sean | Introducing

1: Dear Birth Mother, Our names are Earl and Sean and we've been together for five years, having married in Massachusetts in 2009. We are deeply humbled that you have chosen to read our profile. We are so very thankful to you for choosing the gift of life for your child. It is an enormous and profound decision, and surely one of the most difficult anyone would ever have to make. We know that since you've made this decision, that you must be a person of amazing courage and love. We hope that this profile will give you a sense of who we are and hope you may consider our family for the precious gift of life you have already chosen to bring into this world. We bought our home in Maryland last year and our condo in Washington, DC in 2005. Earl manages the team responsible for the award-winning web site of a large national non-profit organization. Sean works as a consultant, a writer, for the government. Both of our families live in Maryland and we're grateful for the support they and our tremendous collection of friends have given us. We share our beautiful home with the gentlest and most pleasant of dogs, our long-time kid-loving buddy Bartlett. We have a lot of laughter and love in our lives and we dream of growing our family and sharing that laughter and love with our children. We can't wait to become new parents and are so appreciative of your consideration. Earl & Sean | Earl | Sean

4: Earl | ...through Sean's Eyes

5: I knew early on that he was a deeply caring and loving person, and after five years, I know that I couldn't have been more right. Earl is a genuinely funny, intelligent, outgoing individual: all things that made me fall madly in love with him. It wasn't long after we met that Earl told me he wanted to have children and that he hoped I felt the same way. Things were going to work out because we were on the same page: I wanted children one day as well. Earl can't get enough of his young nieces and nephews; having his sisters and brothers visit and bring their kids as often as possible. He's just the best with kids: always smiles, tickles, and fun, but also easily wise enough to correct them when they need to be. | Fun facts about Earl: • Grew up in Western Massachusetts • Is an accomplished photographer, with a book published • Enjoys traveling • Loves doing home improvement projects

6: ...from Earl's | Sean

7: I always knew I wanted to be a father, and when I met Sean and we hit it off, I told him in no uncertain terms that I wanted kids in a few years. He said he felt the same way and I soon realized we could spend the rest of our lives together. Sean is a lot like a big kid sometimes, very playful and fun-loving. He can't wait for the day he can play dress up in the playroom or catch in the back yard. He dreams of coaching our children's little league team, whether baseball or softball, or best of all: both! | Fun facts about Sean: • Spent a summer in Israel on an archaeological dig • Enjoys writing • Is a beginning golfer • Loves cooking for friends and family | point of view

8: Our Families | Earl's mother and sister live and work about an hour away. They both enjoy visiting and spending the weekend at our home. His mother is excited by the thought of being a grandmother. Earl also has a brother and sister on his father's side. We love when they bring his young niece and nephew over to visit. It's going to be wonderful having children of our own and them having cousins close in age living not too far away. Sean's mother is retired and she doesn't miss a week asking “How's the adoption coming?” She simply cannot wait to babysit and to be the loving, doting grandmother that Sean's was to him. Sean's younger brother, an artist, lives with their mother and looks forward to being an uncle soon. Sean also has a brother and sister through his father's second marriage. | Earl's mother | Sean's mother | Earl's father

9: When that day comes for us to be parents, we hope to raise our children with the same foundation, with the same messages and morals our parents instilled in us. | Sean's brother | Earl's sister | Earl's brother & sister in-law | Earl's sister & niece | Sean with his sister & brothers | Earl's brother & nephew | Our family at Thanksgiving

10: We bought our five-bedroom home in 2008, knowing that we needed more space, extra rooms, and a large backyard for when it came time to bring a child into our home and lives. Our yard is fenced with a large grassy play area, and a huge patio. We have a bedroom ready for when we bring a child home and a large rec room ready to be filled with games, toys, and laughter. | Our Home

11: One of our requirements when we moved was an area with excellent local schools because we knew we would be growing our family. We didn't compromise on schools because we both agree there's nothing better than a top quality education. Our home is in a safe, diverse neighborhood, close to plenty of large parks and trails. We're lucky enough to live within a short walk to the county library, as well as local shops and restaurants. | walking the dogs in the park | local shops | local elementary school | local library

Every year, we have both of our families join us at our home for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. Sean enjoys cooking dinner with the help of both of our mothers. | Traditions | July 4th, 2009 | Thanksgiving 2009 | Christmas 2008 | Christmas 2008

17: Our Promise | We make this promise to each other, to you, and to our child, as faithfully and with the same dedication we did our marriage vows: to be honest and truthful, to love unconditionally, and to always and forever be the kind of parents that any child could ever dream of having.
