Hi! I am Ann-Marie and my son is Maxwell. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us!
Considering adoption for your child is undoubtedly a difficult and emotional decision. I will gladly answer any questions you might have about our family and my commitment to an open adoption. Adoption is a lifelong relationship between two families and I want you to feel confident in who I am should you choose me to raise your child and ultimately be a part of your bigger family.
Adoption has impacted my life in such an amazing way and I am so grateful to be a mom. My son Maxwell is 3 years old and I got to bring him home from the hospital at just 2 days old. I pinch myself daily that I was chosen by his mom to be the one to raise him and help him blossom. I am excited about the possibility of having another little one to love and help grow into their amazing self. Coming from a large family, I appreciate the sibling bonds that I have and hope that my son will get to experience growing up with a brother or sister too.

First and foremost, love, unconditional love with lots of laughter and hugs.

A happy home, a safe haven where you can always be your authentic self.
Support to allow you to pursue your interests whether that is in sports, music, the arts, science, fashion, the outdoors, or something entirely different.
A family that will always have your back, encourage and celebrate you as you make your way.
A strong foundation that will allow you to grow into a self-assured, independent adult.
A few of my favorite snapshots
If you choose us, your little one will always know their story and how we came to be a family. Adoption is a complex journey, but please know that I am committed to honoring open lines of honest communication with you and with your child. Every person deserves knowledge of where they come from and to have their roots recognized and celebrated. I promise to provide your child with an environment that positively affirms their heritage and culture and cultivates a strong sense of self. My goal is to raise kids that feel empowered, connected, and secure in who they are as an individual as well as in their relationships.
It would be such a privilege for me to parent another child and for us to be a family of three. I sincerely appreciate you considering me as the person to love and provide for your baby. I hope this can be the start to a lifelong bond.
Sending you love and light,
Ann-Marie and Maxwell
