A little bit about us: We first met in 2002 when Sarah went to Havana for a visit. It was a beautiful day at the beach when suddenly it started pouring with rain, so Sarah went to a 'matinee' where Habaneros dance and listen to live music in the afternoon. She met Roly and we hit it off immediately. After visiting Cuba several more times, we decided to get married and Roly moved to London in 2005. In 2014, we moved back to the United States and have been building a new life for ourselves here, which we hope will include a child.
We live in a Manhattan apartment, close to Central Park and all the cultural riches that New York City has to offer.

Sarah was born in Brooklyn, NY, but she lived for many years in London. Her father was Scottish, so she has dual citizenship. She worked as a professional journalist in London for 17 years and more recently as Communications Specialist for international aid agencies.
These jobs have taken her to more than 25 countries around the world, from India to Thailand to much of Africa and Latin America. Along the way, Sarah has become fluent in Spanish.
Sarah has always wanted to have children, but it has not been possible. Having traveled so widely, she is now fully committed to making parenting in New York City her first priority and is looking forward to sharing what she has learned with their child.
She also has a large extended family in the New York area, who are looking forward to welcoming a new member of the family.
Roly was born in Havana and spent most of his life there until moving to London in 2005.
He enjoys good Cuban food and likes to cook it himself from time to time. Popular music is another passion, particularly Latin artists.
Roly works as a male stylist in a large barbershop. He has been doing this for many years and had his own business when he lived in Cuba.
