We grew up a few towns from one another and met in high school. We were good friends, always looking to keep the other smiling better yet laughing. But as we started college unfortunately we lost touch. We met up again years later at a mutual friends party and have been inseparable ever since. We rediscovered how much we love to make each other laugh, we both can go to the silliest extremes to get a laugh from each other. We both want the very best for each other and can motivate each other to climb to the highest heights. Our dream of having a family is something we have pursued for a few years now. We cannot wait to bring a little one to our family, there is nothing better than a baby's laugh.
We live in a sweet town on Long Island in an award winning school district. We are about 15 minutes from the beach and an hour from New York City. We have a big backyard with a play gym and a little house all ready for a child to explore.
Mara spends everyday doing what she loves, playing with children and mixes some speech therapy in there as well. She has worked with special needs children since she was in sixth grade. She adores her career and cannot imagine her life not having children in it. She loves to cook, everything and anything. She is well known for her chocolate chip cookies. When she asks what she can bring to a party the typical response is her cookies. She is a crafter too. She keeps us organized, always looking for opportunities for us to declutter our lives. She is an animal lover constantly seeking to support local shelters and of course spoil our pup any chance she gets. Mara often gets behind a cause she is moved by (autism, suicide, women's rights, cancer, etc.) and motivate others to join her in fundraising, walks, arranging an event and/or offering support for the cause. She has a very big heart and is always looking to take care of those around her. She will make a great mom/
