Family...Where Life Begins and Love Never Ends

Hello, So Happy You’re Here!

We are Jen & Dom, a loving, down to earth couple from Brooklyn, NY. We are so excited and ready to open our hearts to the world of parenthood! Our long time dream of raising a family begins here. We have an incredible support system of family and friends. Your baby will have a great foundation to grow on and will always know what an amazing person you are to us.

We are so grateful you have taken the time to read about us. We have to commend you for having such strength and courage during this time. As you get to know us, we hope you find comfort in knowing how much we’d love to share our lives with a child through adoption. It may also ease your mind to know that Dominic has been in a similar situation as yours and can relate to the challenges you are facing. He is a birthparent who placed a baby for adoption many years ago and has recently reconnected.

We welcome you to read on and get a glimpse into our world. We only wish the best for you and your baby.

With warmest regards,

Jen & Dom

Who We Are

We met on a blind date set up by mutual friends. We went to dinner and played billiards. Dom told friends after our first date that he had met the woman he was going to marry! After 16 months of dating, Dom proposed on the deck of a dinner cruise around lower Manhattan, near the Statue of Liberty. It was incredibly romantic! In October 2004, we were married in church followed by a beautiful reception on Long Island.

Marriage is definitely an adventure and we couldn’t be happier! We are married 13 years now. We occasionally celebrate our anniversary in Disney World where we also honeymooned. Our relationship is strong. Our love and values run deep. We will always be there for one another as we will for your child. We have been patiently waiting for the next chapter of our lives to begin and become parents.

We tried having a family on our own and faced many years of infertility issues. Although we were disappointed, our determination to have a family stayed strong and we quickly switched gears towards adoption. After some research, we joined APC ( a local adoptive family support group), attended meetings and got lots of information. It was the best thing we could’ve done! Our devotion to be the greatest parents for your child is our priority.

Our Family and Friends

We are blessed to have a loving, supportive family with whom we are very close. Dom has one brother, James. James and his wife live down the block from us with their 3 young daughters. Dom’s aunt & uncle, who are like parents to us, live in the neighborhood also. Dom has a large extended family within and outside of NY. He also has two adopted cousins.

Members of Jen’s immediate family reside in Queens, NY and South Carolina. Jen has one brother, John, who is married and has 2 sons. She also has step-siblings and extended family out of state.

Our holidays and parties with family are a special time to catch up and reminisce. Our heritage is mostly Italian so there’s always plenty of good food to be had! Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas are biggest for us. We have annual July 4th barbecues and spur of the moment get-togethers as well!

Our parents brought us up to be responsible, independent, respectful people with lots of love to give. They made sure we had a good scholastic background and always did the best we could. We promise to teach your baby these qualities and more.

Besides our family, our friends were so thrilled to find out we decided to become adoptive parents! They know how hard we tried to have a family. We are so lucky to have a great group of friends that we’ve known for many years. They mean the world to us! Some of them have children also. In fact, we are godparents to friends and family members. Our friends are so thoughtful and supportive; they are always there when we need them. We consider them family.

Adoption Diary

Jen’s Birthday Weekend

Hey there! We celebrated my birthday this weekend. Low key this time, just some dinner with friends, but still had fun. Friday we went to the Brooklyn Cyclone game in Coney Island. It was sooo windy! Couldn’t believe it! At least it kept us cool. Sunday we went to probably our favorite seafood place, in City Island, the Bronx, called Seashore Restaurant and Marina. The food here is phenomenal! I don’t think there’s a bad dish on the menu. We shared some baked clams, coconut shrimp, sushi, and raw clams. For dinner we had the Alaskan king crab legs, soooo gooood! We don’t go there often, usually for special occasions. The view is spectacular, right on the water. You can see the boats sailing and watch the sunset with the Throgs Neck Bridge in the background. We took some pics, check them out in our album section. Enjoy your summer!

Thank God for Great Friends

Love these guys so much! Hanging with some besties over the weekend. My sister from another mister, lol
Ann and I have been close friends for about 18 years or so. We met working in a crazy busy doctor’s office. Over the years we’ve laughed, we’ve cried. I’m so lucky to have her in my life. Everyone should have a support system in their life, whether it be one person or 100. You shouldn’t have to go through life alone.  Xoxo

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

Dom & Jen
