Erick and I were married in 2010, but we've been together since I was 19 and he 21. During those 15 years we've been through a lot together including college, grad school, long-distance moves, and a million other things. We are best friends and, over time, that love has only grown. If asked what our secret is, we would both say laughter as we're always working to make each other giggle. We figure, without love and laughter, what's the point?

Both of us have always wanted to adopt and, while we will consider a young infant, we hope to be matched with a pregnant mother. We look forward to nurturing a new baby into the person he or she is meant to become. This child will be loved unconditionally and supported by us, our friends, and our families for the rest of their life. Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. If you think we might be a good match for you, please feel free to contact us anytime. We very much look forward to hearing from you.

Sarah Ranta

Sarah is from Memphis, TN where she got her BA in Communications before moving to New Orleans to earn her MFA in Film Production. She's worked at many different tv stations and loves using her production skills to meet all kinds of people and tell their stories. Currently, she is a media producer with a local government outside of New Orleans.

Sarah loves kids and, over the years, has worked part time as a babysitter and a camp counselor. She is close with her family and adores her 3 nephews and 1 neice. Having always wanted a child of her own, Sarah has also always been committed to adoption too. She can not wait to raise a child surrounded by the love and support that she grew up with.

Sarah, by her husband, Erick:

"Sarah is kind, passionate, driven and simply amazing - she is my soulmate.  I am thankful everyday at how fortunate I was to marry her.  I have no doubt that Sarah will be a spectacular mother.  I can't wait to share our love with a child."

Erick Ranta

Erick was born in Memphis, TN, too, but he spent his teen years in Duluth, MN, where a lot of his family still remain. After studying Political Science, he attended law school before finally ending up in the banking sector. Currently, he works for a prominent New Orleans bank as a Trust Administrator. But he isn't all just facts and numbers. Erick is creative. He and Sarah share a love of movies and he even writes novels in his spare time. Eventually, he would love to work as a full-time writer.

Erick is surrounded by step-sisters, cousins, and more neices and nephews than he can count. He is also commited to adoption and, as his mother's only child, he looks forward to having a grandchild for her to dote on. For now, Erick's only child is his dog, Ace, who both he and Sarah adore. A sweet and gentle shelter-rescue dog, Ace loves to give kisses and is great around children.

Erick, by his Wife, Sarah:

"Erick is my best friend.  Every day he manages to amaze me with his patience, loyalty and love. I know he will be a devoted Dad and I can't wait to experience the adventure of parenthood with him."
