We are Mark and Maire from the suburbs of Philadelphia. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about our family!
We met in 2012 and on our first date, Maire liked Mark’s smile and his kind ways and Mark liked Maire’s athletic look and sweet personality. After a year of dating, Maire was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. While this period was really challenging, we learned to communicate, grew stronger and found ways to laugh every day.
We have also experienced incredible joy together. We married in 2015 and, in 2017, welcomed our son, Jaak, into this world. Becoming parents has been the most rewarding thing that has happened to us. We have a lot of love to give and believe adoption is a beautiful way to grow our family.
We hope our story will help you in making your choice. We are excited to adopt and bring another child into our family. We won’t pretend to understand the difficult decision you are about to make, but we deeply admire your courage and selflessness, and would be honored to be a part of your journey. We look forward to meeting you!
