Loving NYC family longing to be a tribe of five
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to have a large family. My elementary school friends still love to remind me about the lists I made of names for the six (!) children I wanted. As time went on and I learned in my teenage years that I'd be unable to safely carry a pregnancy, I started researching adoption (as you can see I'm a bit of a planner!) and knew this would ultimately lead me towards my goal of motherhood.
Soon after meeting my husband Curt in 2000 I revealed to him that I'd be unable to carry a child. Thankfully this was a complete nonissue for him and in fact he was as excited to learn about the process as I was in informing him about it.
In 2008 our oldest son Brady was born and the journey of parenthood had begun! Then in 2012, Tate arrived and just like that we were a family of 4. Our boys, now 8 and 5 are extremely excited to welcome a new baby into our family. In fact they are currently a little baby obsessed- pointing out "cute", "chubby", "smiley" babies everywhere we go. They've had a lot of experience lately with babies as our extended family grows with cousins galore!
Curt and I are fortunate enough to have an open relationship with both boys birth families. We keep in touch via texting mostly but also through Facebook, sent photos and letters as well as phone calls. We understand that each adoption situation is different and we are open to whatever relationship you are most comfortable with.
We invite you to take a look at our PDF (click "Download our Profile") that is loaded with pictures and will help you get to know us a little better (we have a soft cover book we can also send you if you'd prefer that). In our prior experiences, we have learned that a few phone conversations really helps to solidify a great match between birth moms and an adopting family. Adoption has brought so much joy to our lives and we are so excited to be on this wild adventure again.
Best of luck in your part of this journey. It is emotional, stressful and overwhelming even in the best of circumstances. We will be with you through all of it both during your pregnancy and afterwards. Can't wait to hear from you!
Much love- Sara, Curt, Brady & Tate
