We are so delighted to introduce you to a lovely home-study approved (and certified to adopt) Purl Family: Paul and Sarah! This Arizona couple met through an online dating service. A great first date, followed by three months of dating, led to an engagement and they have been happily married for 11 years!

Arizona Hopeful Adoptive Family
Sarah has a love for children and would do anything for her family and friends. As Paul says, she has such a big heart. She loves having brunch with family and friends, going to the beach, and grabbing coffee. Sarah describes Paul as a kind, funny, God-driven person. He is constantly making her laugh. Paul enjoys relaxing on the couch with a good book and family game nights and dinners. He also likes to sing and play the guitar.

This family loves to travel together, taking road trips and visiting new places. What they enjoy most is spending time with family and getting together on holidays and birthdays. Both Sarah and Paul’s first jobs when they were teenagers were working with children. Now, they are both educators, hoping to start a family, and they can’t wait to make a positive impact in a child’s life who would be their own. They’ve been talking about adoption since the very beginning of their relationship and strongly believe “if you have the heart for adoption, don’t let fear stand in the way.”
