We thank you with all our hearts for considering us as a possible family for your child. We promise to provide a safe, loving, and warm home. We have strong parenting skills, as we have been blessed with a son who is bright, funny and kind, and your child will have a sibling who will be the best big brother you could possibly imagine. Our home is filled with love, but we have so much more to give and hope you will give us the opportunity to share that with you and your child.
We met in 2002 on the Long Island Railroad when Matt worked up the nerve to talk to Larry. We decided to move in together after realizing we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with each other, a feeling only further cemented when, in 2010, our son was born. Our lives have been filled with joy since he came along. In 2012 we moved into our spacious suburban home. We wanted our kids (plural!) to have a big yard and lots of nearby friends. Once we were able to be married, we did so on October 3, 2013, on our 11-year anniversary.
We are well-respected and very involved in our community of local family and friends. We have a huge support network, starting with Matt's mom (aka Grandma, as ALL the neighborhood kids call her) who lives with us. Larry's entire family lives locally and since he grew up on Long Island, he has a large group of friends and family here as well. In addition Larry is CJ's baseball coach and we help coordinate our annual block party. We love our neighborhood!
After trying unsuccessfully for several years to expand our family through various other means, and being certain that our family is not quite finished, we have now embarked on this new journey. Our home is filled with love and we can’t wait to share that love.
Had an amazing weekend. We combined our annual family get together (usually on our son’t birthday) with Pride Day at Citi Field! We went onto the field in a rainbow of shirts for the national anthem. CJ was surrounded by friends and family and had his name on the big JumboTron!!!! Fathers’ Day was low key, spent with family by their pool. Great way to usher in the Summer!
Had a great weekend celebrating our son’s birthday. I can’t believe he’s already seven! Saturday was the last baseball game of the season and he had two hits! Then there were bouncy houses and free hot dogs! Later on we had a playdate in the backyard with the water slide and great food for dinner. We made slime and cupcakes in ice-cream cones, which were delicious, btw. On sunday we saw Captain Underpants which was pretty funny, even for grown-up kids like us! Afterward he made Lemonade to sell, and made almost $10!!! Next was pride weekend at the beach, a train ride, and capped by dinner at Applebees! Everyone was worn out and very happy!
