Letter to Birthparents

Tim and I love children and have always known that being parents was on the top of our “Can’t Wait For” list. So upon discovering that natural childbirth was not an option for us, we immediately began to pray about adoption. The more we learned about it, the more we realized what an amazing opportunity it was and the perfect answer for us.
We met when we were 19 and quickly became best friends. Within a few months, we were dating and soon after, we were very much in love. Letters were exchanged while Tim served a mission in Antofagasta, Chile and in December of 2004, we were married in the Seattle, WA Temple. Life since that day has been an amazing adventure.

Tim manages our family business that will soon become his company, while I work as an Office Manager/Accountant for a Drug & Alcohol Recovery center. We both look forward to the day when we adopt and I get to stay home and raise our children.

As often as possible, we like to go play and have fun. Tim is kind of “all over the map” and his interests range everywhere from VW’s to hiking boots. He grew up in a small town in Oregon, and loves anything that has to do with the outdoors. Camping, biking, and rock climbing are some of his favorites and he’s also a great snowboarder. I love the outdoors and sports, and have played volleyball my whole life. I am very passionate about music and love to sing. Scrapbooking is a favorite pastime of mine and I get excited about any kind of crafty project. Together, we love to travel; whether its road trips, day trips or flying cross country, our favorite thing to do is countdown to a vacation!

Family is extremely important to us and we were both raised in wonderful families with great siblings and dedicated, exceptional parents. They taught us the kind of people and parents we want to be. We are blessed to maintain very close relationships with them today.

We would like to express our gratitude in being able to share with you a little bit about ourselves. The decision to place your child for adoption is so important and difficult; we hope that as you consider it, you feel the peace and love of the Savior as strongly as we do when we think of the amazing sacrifice you would be making. We have been through many ups and downs together and have built a strong foundation and an unbreakable bond. We have felt our Heavenly Father’s love each and every day through the many blessings in our lives and we pray often for the incredible blessing of raising a child. As we prepare for the next step in our family, our hearts are filled with so much joy and excitement. We pray daily for the sweet baby that will soon bless our family and look forward to sharing an open adoption.

With love, hope and excitement –

Tim & Leah Sannar
