We are excited to get to know you and your dreams for the child that you are bringing into the world!
We recognize the tremendous courage you have in considering adoption and know you have your child’s best interests at heart as you navigate this process. The future we envision for our child together is full of opportunity, learning and love.
We decided on adoption early in our marriage -- Ronie's grandmother is adopted, too! We are very close to our family and friends who are all so supportive of our desire to start our family through adoption, and they are excited to welcome a little one with open and loving arms.
We live in New York City next to a gorgeous park, we love being able to be connected to nature while in the city. We promise to provide a safe and loving home with wonderful opportunities for education and travel as our child grows.
We'd like to get to know you and know it must be a confusing time, so take your time and know we are here when you want to connect. :)
After college we both had moved to Colorado. Michael was the co-founder of a tech start up and Ronie was a professional cyclist. We met rock climbing and fell in love. We enjoyed our time together snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking and growing close. Michael surprised Ronie with a trip to New York City for a concert and proposed during our favorite song! We got married a couple of years later in 2013.
We moved to New York City shortly after getting married. We knew that we wanted to start a family through adoption and raise our child in a place with people of all different backgrounds and a lot of cultural diversity, especially since we are open to a child of a different background. We love living in a city with so much history, that has so many languages being spoken! And being in a city with the best technological innovation provides inspiration and opportunities for a lifetime. It is our hope that our child is surrounded by inspiration and will choose to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
We love to travel and our child will have the opportunity to see and experience all different parts of the country. We have family and friends all across the country (California, Illinois, Georgia, Indiana, Idaho, Colorado) and we have close friends in Massachusetts that we visit regularly. We also look forward to visiting other parts of the world as a family together one day. Australia is at the top of our list!
I went to see the Limon Dance Company this weekend. What an amazing group of dancers for such a creative and experessive art form. Jose Limon has said, “dance and music are a part of being human since the beginning of time. It is part of our life everyday. We use both music and dance to celebrate and express ourselves.”
The dancers on stage were captivating as was the music and production. There was one piece that had a vocal ensemble that created such wonderful sound, full of intrigue. The woman that sat next to me was there with her daughter and it was such a delight getting to share that experience with them. :)
I went with my friend Natasha who is also a dancer and actress, we were both blown away!
