A Letter from Austin & Sarah

We are a Catholic family and are excited to become first-time parents and welcome your child of any race into our family. We enjoy working on our beautiful farm, traveling the world, and trying a variety of new things. As parents, we feel our job is to help our child grow into the best version of themselves through love, compassion, understanding, and patience. We are ready and excited to begin the next chapter of our lives!

Getting to Know Us

We have been together for fourteen years and have been through many stages of life together. Family is a huge priority for us. Together as a family, we enjoy holiday-baking, apple picking, and playing games. We are a pet-loving family and enjoy all of our furry friends. We both absolutely love being outdoors and look forward to the different seasons and the variety of experiences each season has to offer. In the summer, we enjoy going to the Farmer’s Market and love to supporting our local shops and farms. We love to travel and our frequent visits to the family’s lake cottage are among our favorites. We enjoy visiting our old college campus as well! We value strong morals, music, hard work, dedication, and taking the time to laugh. We are excited to share our values and hobbies with a child.

Meet My Husband, Austin

Austin is calm, easy-going, reliable, hardworking, and would do anything for anyone. He spends his time volunteering and tutoring students at a local school. Austin enjoys jet skiing, canoeing, and being out on the water. In his free time, he enjoys learning new skills such as renovating our house and building things for the farm. He is also passionate about cooking. When it comes to raising our child, he is looking forward to reading with them before bed, looking up at the night sky next to a campfire, and talking about all of the wonders of the world.

Meet My Wife, Sarah

Sarah is the most caring and compassionate woman I know. She is always trying to be better and strives to help everyone to be the best version of themselves. She is a very good listener and genuinely cares about everyone she meets. She is always there for me and I know she will be there for our children. Her main hobbies are gardening, DIY projects, and music. Sarah is the most passionate person I know and her passion does not end with her hobbies but extends to her family as well. She also loves animals and enjoys helping out at the humane shelter.  She is looking forward to sharing her passions with our child and helping them find their own.

Our Home in Indiana

We live in a refurbished farmhouse that is located just outside the city limits. Our house is surrounded by mature trees of all varieties and even some apple and pear trees for picking on those beautiful Indiana fall days. Our home has a lot of room for playing, making tree forts, catching lightning bugs, and many other outdoor activities. Being close to the city we are able to have a peaceful country life and able to expose our children to the hustle and bustle of the city. We love how active our small community is and its accessibility to a variety of different opportunities.

Our Faith and Family

We are a Catholic family that is always trying to grow stronger in our Faith. We enjoy our Catholic community full of many friends and their families. We are always trying to find more ways to be active within the Church and strive to become pillars of the Church and its community. Our extended families are also an important aspect of our lives. We enjoy vacationing, having fun at the lake, exploring art festivals, hosting cookouts, and spending quality time together. Besides just having a good time, our families are very supportive and have always been there when we have needed them.

Our Promise

We promise that there will not be a day that goes by that your child will not know how much we love them. We will celebrate birthdays, accomplishments, holidays, and any and all other special moments. We will read to them before bed and tuck them in by saying, “sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite.” We will help them and support them through the good and the bad times. We value education, faith, hard work, compassion, and being the best you can be. We will teach them all that we know and search for the answers that we don’t know. Most importantly, we promise to be the best we can be for your children and help them to develop into the outstanding people they are meant to be. We would love to get to know you and share with you updates through letters pictures and visits at your comfort level.

More About Our Family
Our Traditions

Family is very important to the both of us and we have many special family traditions in our lives. During the Spring, you can find us decorating eggs for Easter. For Halloween, our family is trying to carve masterpieces into the side of pumpkins to show off to the local neighbor kids. Many of our most treasured family traditions are found during the Christmas season. We spend evenings wrapping gifts, shopping, decorating, eating, singing, and creating mountains of memories. It all starts with putting up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. We all get together and decorate the trees while watching classic Christmas movies. Then there is all of the Holiday baking where we make a different Christmas treat each week. Every Christmas Eve we attend midnight mass and open one of our gifts, usually Christmas pajamas. The Holidays are truly special times in our family and we are excited to share these traditions and pass them down to our children.

Our Hobbies

We have quite a variety of different hobbies between the two of us. We both absolutely love being outdoors and look forward to the different seasons and the variety of experiences each season has to offer. In the summer, we enjoy going to the Farmer's Market. One day, Sarah would love to have her own booth and take our entire family to the Farmer’s Market to sell flowers that they picked the night before from our garden. We love the different booths and enjoy supporting our local shops and farms. Austin loves canoeing, jet skiing, and doing just about anything on the water. We both love the lake and spend a great deal of time during the summer at our family’s lake cottage. Sarah loves finding old furniture and adding a coat of paint to transform it into a gem that tells a story. We both love gardening and trying our hand at new vegetables and flowers. We are looking forward to teaching our kids how to take care of the animals, and adding some new additions to the farm. We love to experience all aspects of life and are up for trying almost anything.

Our Pets

Currently, we have two Bernese Mountain dogs, a golden retriever and three playful cats. With this many animals, there is never a dull moment around the house. Our dogs are extremely loving and are always excited to meet new people.

How did we meet?

We were both in the high school marching band and had a few classes together in our first year of high school.
