10 years ago fate brought us to physically walk right into each other and the rest is 3 dogs, a beautiful home, an amazing toddler and now the dream of expanding our family through adoption.From the moment we met we just clicked, we were drawn to each other and we’ve been laughing ever since. Life is worth living because we fit perfectly in the places the other lacks, and as one we are whole.Our life together is everything we could’ve dreamt of, and more because we believe in one another. We push each other to be the best versions of ourselves and we love each other more each day. When we talk we actually listen, we work through hard times as one not separately and we live up to the vows we promised each other every day.Family is the most important thing to both of us. Not just our immediate family but our blended family of heathers and mine that brought a MASSIVE group of people together through love. Holidays are our favorite, our home is always decorated no matter what holiday and the door is always open to our chosen family and the house always smells like italian food.Summers are spent in our pool, bbqing with the family every weekend – Winters are snuggled up on the couch, and playing in the snow — Autumn we’re at the pumpkin patch and baking apple pies –and the Spring is for planting veggies in the garden and going on easter egg hunts with all of our best friends and their families.Love and Support from our family have been the two main reasons why our love has had the opportunity to thrive the way it does. So our job is love our child and every child we are blessed to call ours as unconditionally as we have been loved.
Our Home & Community
We live in New York just 30 minutes outside the Big Apple!We just recently purchased our forever home, and it’s the perfect location between both of our very large families to be together frequently. It’s so rewarding to have both sides be as involved with our children growing up as possible. Children’s gyms, a neighborhood filled with children of all ages, a 9 out of 10 for the scholastic rating from pre-k to high school and low crime rate; our home is perfect for raising a family.
Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption
Our promise as adoptive parents, is to give your child the tools of communication, emotional support, and learning through play, to raise well rounded and genuine little humans to be the be best versions of themselves. We believe that being mothers are the most important jobs for us, it’s what we were meant to do. Biology is not a factor when it comes to parenting a child, the saying “it takes a village’ is beyond an understatement. Having a large family has always been our goal and adoption has always been something that we wanted to be apart of our story, whether it was our first experience as being parents or our second or third. We have such a strong support system behind us and our family that there’s nothing we can’t handle or get through. A few months ago we lost our second baby at 38 weeks, just 11 days before they would have been born. It’s been the worst experience of our lives but we were so close to being parents again. We are so ready to be parents again and to give your child an amazing foundation and a real shot at having the life of their dreams. There’s nothing we wouldn’t do for our children and our family, no matter how that family is built.
We understand the sacrifice that you are making and we don’t take it lightly. Choosing us to raise your child would be the biggest honor for us and our family. We have so much love to give and we’re just waiting for the next member of our family to join us.
