Hello!  We are Kimmie and Sean Warner.  Thank you for taking the time to consider us as a potential part of your family.  We appreciate and respect your decision and hope to soon learn about you.

We are a couple who love deeply and unconditionally.  Our family as well as our faith in God are important to us.  We love finding the fun in everyday things and live to make each other laugh. 

We want you to know from the start that we feel your consideration of an adoption plan for your child is one of the most selfless and brave things a mother can do.  The magnitude of such a decision, to put your child’s needs above your own is not lost on us.  We are committed to adoption and welcome a relationship that extends our family to include a birth family is that is their wish.  We want the child we love and raise to always know that they can love more than one mother and father.

Kimmie and Sean:

We are Kimmie and Sean a Christian couple who love funny photo ops, trips to National Parks, walking our doggies, and helping others in need.  We met in college when Kimmie waited on Sean at a restaurant and have been partners in life ever since.  We share the same sense of humor and there is no one we would rather laugh, love, and enjoy life with.

What Kimmie says about Sean:

“Sean is my hero and my rock, and the funniest, kindest man I know.  I can’t wait to see him be a daddy.”

What Sean says about Kimmie:

“Kimmie makes me laugh every single day.  She is the love of my life, and my best friend.  I can’t wait to have a child with her because that child will be given so much love.”

Our Family:

We both have big supportive families who are our best friends.  With them, we are excited to welcome a little one into a family that is not afraid to show or say, “I love you”.  We long to share a life of unconditional love, a strong faith in God, family meals around the table, nightly bedtime stories, silly made-up songs, and secret languages.  We were both so blessed to have parents who freely gave unwavering love, who made us feel safe and happy, and who celebrated us for who we were.  We know we will do the same.

Our Adoption Thoughts:

We want you to know from the start that we feel your consideration of an adoption plan for your child is one of the most selfless and brave things a mother can do.  The magnitude of such a decision, to put your child’s needs above your own is not lost on us.  We are committed to adoption and welcome a relationship that extends our family to include a birth family is that is their wish.  We want the child we love and raise to always know that they can love more than one mother and father.  We know this same wording was on our home page, and since it is in our hearts wanted to say it again.
