Meet Sarah & Scott
Hello – we are Scott and Sarah. We are honored that you are stopping by our page to meet our family as you are exploring adoption for you and your family. Our prayer is that no matter what situation you find yourself in, know that to us, you are strong and brave. We are touched by your selflessness and powerful love for your child.
We are a working-professional family of three (+1 loving doodle) formed by adoption and based in Nashville. Graduate school at Vanderbilt brought us to Tennessee around 2010. We planted our roots deeply in our faith community and with friends who are a second family. Grandparents are within a day's drive and are actively involved in our kiddo’s life. We live in the suburbs of Nashville and are active in our local community. We strive to know our neighbors who come out of their homes during family walks to catch up with the latest stories and discoveries of our kiddo. Our family values center on Jesus, having fun no matter what we do, and loving people well. Before we were married, we were each looking to marry a strong person of faith; someone genuine and compassionate toward the needs of others; a person who valued family; someone curious and constantly learning; willing to be fun and silly without judgment; and enjoyed life as an adventure. And we definitely found all of these qualities in each other! We are a TEAM - each bringing their own strengths to complement the other and this remains true in parenting our son.
We enjoy being outdoors in our backyard, on the water fishing or skipping rocks, hiking, swimming, collecting critters in jars, or spending time on local nature trails as a family. And we make every attempt to keep our life simple by prioritizing our time between home, work, church, and our community. We see our role as parents to be loving and fully present for our children. Our goal is to nurture the little people in our lives the best that we can, with the resources we have (mental, emotional, physical, social, financial, and spiritual) toward kindness, compassion, trustworthiness, and independence. We commit to advocate for them as they need and will be their biggest champions in the wins and the losses.
We are forever marked as a family by adoption and openly acknowledge its beauty as well as the deep feelings of loss and grief. Your child will know about you and hear their adoption story from the very beginning in our family. We approach adoption openness like any relationship, we hope to grow together as we get to know each other. We have a room in our home and a future big brother who often mentions “baby” in things that we do around the house and in activities in our community.
We look forward, openly and with hope, to the possibility of getting to know you soon.
Scott & Sarah
