Who Are We? – by both of us
We are Sara and Eric. We are two proud Canadians while Eric has a Japanese background and Sara a Persian heritage. We met in 2009 and have been in love since the moment we laid eyes on each other. It was mutual. Our first date was a special experience: After watching a movie together at a local theatre, we sat on a bench to chat, and we ended up talking for hours! From that night on, we realized we were meant for each other – forever. A year later, we married.
We value family traditions, work-life balance, and treating others with respect and dignity. We have established careers as a Health & Safety Manager and a Senior Technician, and we have built a happy life together. We are fully capable of providing the emotional, financial and psychological needs for those in our care.
We are blessed to have our little boy, Charlie, who came into our lives in February 2016. While Charlie is our biological child, it has always been our hope and our dream to complete our family through adoption. Your child will be the dream we have always wished for. We know in our hearts that this is the journey that was meant for us. A journey to find you and, together, to give your child everything they will ever need to grow up strong, healthy and happy.
Our Lifestyle – by both of us
We have a calm and delightful family life balance. We both have wonderful careers, and we enjoy our work. During our workdays, Charlie attends the most fantastic pre-school where he plays with friends, learns new exciting things about the world, and always comes home with a huge smile on his face.
Our evenings consist of dedicated family time together: a hot meal, play time, watching a Disney movie, playing games and reading stories.
We celebrate our achievements and milestones together, and we are always there for each other during difficult times.
We love spending time outdoors, taking family vacations, exploring – always spending time with each other and making beautiful memories.
We are grateful to have a supportive family, and we cherish the time we spend with them. For us, family is everything, and with your little one, this will be an absolute. Your child will belong to our family (as they do yours) and will be cherished, loved and doted on beyond compare.
Sara – by Eric
Sara loves her family more than any woman I have ever known, and right from the start, she took to my family as if it was her own (which it now is). Sara has also shown me that she loves nothing more than being a mother and taking care of our little one. Parenting is her greatest joy.
Eric – by Sara
When I first met Eric, I fell in love with his smile and his light-hearted personality. I remember noticing that Eric accepted everyone for exactly who they were in that moment – with kindness, consideration and positivity.
Charlie (The big brother)
Charlie is a playful and happy little guy with a heart made of gold. He always surprises us with his capacity to show kindness – it is unparalleled.
Charlie loves to play and run around. His favourite toys are his pots and pans. He spends a lot of time pretending he is cooking for us. Charlie likes to sing, play make-believe and tell stories. He also loves his Mickey Mouse plush toy and takes it with him everywhere he goes.
Our Home & Community
We live in the mature treed area of an urban community in Southern Ontario. Our home gives us a perfect balance of urban life, with nature interwoven into its platform. Our home is located on a quiet street, with lovely neighbours whom we appreciate. We are close to child-focused parks and are within walking distance of a lake where there is a sandy beach and a playground. There are two good schools in the area and a community centre close to us.
Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption
In addition to playtime structure and growth, we fully believe in a positive parenting style, such as praising and warm words of encouragement. We hope to be able to empower your child by guiding them, allowing them to make their own decisions, and to help them understand that it’s okay to make mistakes. But most of all, we believe that praising children should be done in public and coaching in private.
We believe in a lifestyle and a parenting plan that is based on balance and structure.
Children are like flowers – beautiful and in need of a lot of attention, which will encourage them to bloom to their full glory, just as they are intended.

Your Adoption Plan
It is absolutely our sincere wish to maintain a relationship with you as our futures unfold because we will be bound together forever through the life of your child. Together, we can be a complete unit – the roots and branches to your child’s life story.
We hope to enjoy visits with you, as well as to send you emails and photos and continuous updates about your child and their life full of adventure and happiness. We also promise we will cherish and encourage a relationship between you and your child. We want to create a plan that you feel comfortable with, and we look forward to hearing your ideas for what that plan might look like.
It is with sincere thanks that we share our gratitude to you for even considering us as parents for your child. Our hearts are filled with joy and love, and we enthusiastically wait to welcome another little one into our forever lives. So, thank you for reading about us and for finding out what we can give to you and your child as you undertake this momentous decision.
Finally, let us say that we have deep respect for you and your decision to create an adoption plan for you and your child. We admire your love for your child and your desire to do what you feel is best for both of you.
No matter what your decision will be, we wish you all the best, love and peace.
Eric and Sara
