What Friends Say

“I think Ann and Sean would make excellent parents because of their kind, caring, empathetic hearts. I have four children and Annie has always been there through the rough times to help. When my daughter broke her neck, Annie stepped in not only to learn how to take care of her and her special needs but also gave us much needed support and respite. I’ve worked in the same school as Annie and have seen her in action with her students. She is firm yet loving and the kids adore her. At family gatherings, Sean is quick with a hello and engages the kids in conversation. As a couple they are welcoming and make you feel at home. They both have huge hearts and long to share that love with a child of their own.” -Kathy, Ann’s sister


“Annie and Sean are two of the best people we know. They are more like family than friends to us and our two boys. Annie and Sean have prayed for children since we have known them. We believe that it would not only be a blessing for them but for the child as well. They both are kind, humorous, giving and hard working. They would make an amazing team in raising children and we hope they will one day have that opportunity.”-Lisa and Scott, friends


“We believe Ann and Sean are two amazing people who have so much love and concern ready to share with a future child. We have seen first hand how they care for and lovingly interact with our three children as well as, their nieces, nephews, students and other children. We have no doubt that any child God puts in their lives will be well loved and taken care of in the future.”-Rosie and Jeff, friends
