Our names are Tom and Guillaume, and we’d like to thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We’d like to introduce you to our home in New Jersey (just outside New York), our families in Ohio and France, and our friends. Oh, and our two cats and Beagle, too!
After ten years together and three years of marriage, we’re quite excited by the prospect of enlarging our family through adoption.
We understand that the decision to place your child for adoption is a difficult one and we have a lot of respect for it. We’re both hopeful to have an open adoption, as we think it’s the healthiest and most honest way to raise a child.

Snuggle time with everybody!

Great time at our friends' wedding. They have been together for 15 years and finally tied the knot!
Who We Are
We met in 2006 through a friend when Tom was living in New York City and Guillaume was in Boston. It was the start of something big--we’ve been together since that day. In 2008 Guillaume moved from Boston to New York to live with Tom. We got a domestic partnership in 2009 and were married in 2013. We celebrated our union in the summer of 2014 with family and friends in the Provence... and it was a great party!
Living together has been such a blessing and so much fun. We’re partners and best friends, and share many interests and hobbies.
We love cooking, and at least one of us is busy in the kitchen every night. Sitting down together at dinner is the most important time of the day for us, and we look forward to continuing this tradition with a child.
We enjoy experiencing our new surrounding whether it’s gardening, walking to the park, working on different projects in the house, finding treasures at estate sales, or heading to a diner with our family or friends.
For the past ten years we’ve greatly enjoyed our roles as uncles to our three nieces and one nephew. Spending regular time with them has made us realize that we want to raise a child of our own.
Guillaume loves playing with kids and clowning around. He’s a hit every Fourth of July back in Ohio. Tom is always happy to take his nephew and nieces around town, to the Museum of Natural History and, yes, to the playground! We’re eager to introduce a child to many wonderful things--but also mindful that they need to discover and develop their own interests.
