We are a married couple who want to have a family and are seeking to adopt our first child. We met over five years ago, have been together for four and were married in 2015. Despite our best efforts, we were unable to get pregnant, and began to think of adoption as a way to adapt to our situation.
In life things don’t always work out as one hopes or plans – in our case, we didn’t get the chance to complete our family as we dreamed when we decided to marry. Perhaps you are reading this because something in your life is not going as you planned and placing your baby in a loving home is what you decided to do to adapt to your situation. It is our sincerest hope that our adoption will be your solution and adaptation at this time in your life.
We live on Long Island, NY, close to the beach. We own a comfortable 3 bedroom ranch home with a great backyard, where we love to host casual gatherings throughout the summer. Financially, we are confident we will be able to provide for a child (or maybe two) through college.
I am an easy-going, friendly guy, very social but with no need to be the center of attention – as the youngest of four brothers I got more than my fair share of attention as a child. I work as a financial advisor, helping people save and invest for retirement. Jennifer says that I am the most patient man she has ever known, but also a little “goofy,” maybe because I tend to laugh at my own silly jokes.
In my spare time I like to read and write, go to the beach (we live only minutes away from the ocean), kayak, watch classic films, and get together with good friends. I also volunteer through my church to help with a service for cognitively-impaired adults, who typically live in group homes with constant supervision.
I am a creative and energetic professional. I work as a graphic designer. I am also a singer-songwriter, playing guitar and singing for fun and at my church. Brian describes me as very balanced, kind, thoughtful, outgoing and congenial, but the truth is that like many a redhead, I am also passionate and emotional. Besides playing music, I also enjoy reading, the beach, kayaking, yoga, cooking, and watching old classic movies with my sweetheart.
