Hello. We are James and Mara, a married couple from New York with two adopted children. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about us as you explore your options for your child. We know that you have many choices, and we thought it would be helpful to provide you with a snapshot of who we are and the kind of life that we can provide for any child. The most important thing we can tell you is that we both come from close knit families who are eager to welcome another child into their hearts. Both of our families, are a melting pot made of many different ethnic cultures and backgrounds. We also live in a very diverse community. We are confident that a child from any background would be warmly welcomed into our lives and accepted for who they are.
If anyone had told us years ago that we would meet our spouse and best friend on-line we wouldn’t have believed them. However that’s exactly what happened. Our first date was at a local sports bar where we watched the Stanley Cup Finals between the Detroit Red Wings & Pittsburgh Penguins go into triple overtime. We were having so much fun being together we didn’t notice that almost 7 hours had gone by. After that day we’ve rarely spent any time apart and we were married in February of 2010. In 2012 we welcomed our first child by adoption, our son Luke and 6 months later his sister Elizabeth was born and adopted by us. Luke and Elizabeth have changed our lives for the better and we could not imagine our life without them.. They would love nothing more than to have a younger sibling join our family through adoption just like they did.
We know you have an important decision to make and that you have many choices open to you. If you are considering us as the adoptive family for your child we want you to know that we will do everything in our power to provide your child with the best opportunities life has to offer. Your child will be loved not just by us but by their siblings and our large extended family. Your child will be accepted into our community of family and friends for who s/he is. We believe that the best thing a parent can do for their child is to instill positive values and then help their child chose the path which is best for them. Each person has to create their own dreams. Because adoption has always been in our family, we understand how important it will be for your child to know his or her unique story. Should you chose adoption, your child will know that your decision was made out of love for your child. We promise to strive to make this time in your life less stressful and to provide you with the level of emotional support which makes you most comfortable.
We would love to learn more about you, and hope you feel the same way about us. We are happy to speak with you and meet with you directly. We look forward to shaping our relationship in a way which makes you most comfortable.
