Our life is an open book, so jump in and take a good look around.
With that said, for two people who would rather talk about anything but themselves, pouring our hearts out on these pages is far from easy. Motivation is extremely powerful.
We are Michael and Maureen from Long Island, New York. We like to think of ourselves as loving, intelligent and funny people, unless our friends and family have been lying to us all along.
We are proud and happy in the life we share together and want so much to grow our family. We are very excited about our decision to adopt.
We have been together for 12 years, 9 of them as a married couple. We have been inseparable since the beginning. Our meeting felt like "coming home". We met in 2004, married in 2007, bought our home in 2014 (got two cats along the way), and started planning for the day we would have children. We believe everything happens for a reason, and after several failed fertility treatments, we knew we were meant to build our family through adoption. Our love for each other has deepened over time, and we know no matter what, we can count on each other with what ever life presents us. Having been together for so long, means we know how to comfort each other, how to make each other laugh, and how to solve problems together. We are fortunate that we both come from stable loving families who have supported us throughout our lives.
Michael is a Graphic Designer, and cannot wait to be creative with our child. Maureen is a Medical Billing Manager for a large hospital. One of the offices she oversees is a pediatric practice. We are excited our child will get VIP treatment! The two of us are lucky and grateful we love our jobs!
Our last piece/pieces to our puzzle is adding a baby/babies to our lives!

We live in a small homey town in New York. From our house we can walk or ride our bikes to the park, library, restaurants or down to the water to see boats passing by. We chose this town for it's "homey" feeling, top rated school district, beautiful and peaceful Catholic Church and closeness to our families.
We bought our house 2 years ago with our future family in mind. It is a 3 bedroom split level home. We have a big back yard for children to play. We often have our nieces and nephews over and love to play catch, wiffle ball, soccer and tag. We have a patio where they can use chalk to be creative or just make a hopscotch board. We have BBQ's and parties, and you can always hear someone laughing.
Maureen is the most caring and thoughtful person i know, She is hardworking , driven, smart and beautiful. She is loyal and has a incredible sense of humor. I am beyond lucky to have met and married someone who is my best friend and my life partner. Maureen is an amazing woman and I know in my heart that she will be an incredible mom one day. Sometimes when we're babysitting or at a family function with our nieces and nephews, I just sit back and watch her with a giant smile on my face. She is so amazing with kids! She is so patient and loving with them and I know that she will be a outstanding mother one day.
Michael is one of the most AMAZING people I know. He is kind, loving, generous, beyond patient, and I was lucky enough to marry him! Our nieces and nephews have deemed Michael "the "BEST" uncle".. he is already kid approved!! Seeing Michael with our nieces and nephews always warms my heart. Whether he is helping with an I phone, creating an invitation or banner for the one of their birthdays, playing catch with our nephews, or just letting a 3 or 5 year old talk his ear off about a doll is absolutely endering to me. I know what a great dad he is going to be. He has a lot of love and patience to offer. I can't wait to see him in action.
