Our names are Alyson and Danny and we're so excited to share our adoption story with you! Were are a fun and creative family who know that somewhere out there, there's a baby we already love with all of our hearts. We cannot wait to love that child in person, and to one day tell them the miraculous story of how their mother decided to entrust our family with the world's greatest gift - loving and caring for them! Our daughter Emmy cannot wait to embrace her new sibling, and asks us all the time "when are they coming home to us?".
Right now we are all feeling a combination of excitement, hope, joy - with maybe a spike of nervousness mixed in here and there. To be honest, the world of adoption feels like uncharted territory, but we know with all of our hearts that this is the right path for us.
We are sure that this is a decision you are making out of love, and we respect your choices no matter what. As you decide what is best for you and your baby, please know that we wish you the very best.
Okay so Emmy does a lot of activities - here she is rock climbing. We fully support her motivation and enthusiasm - we can't wait to discover what her future sibling loves to do, and then support them 100%!
Who We Are
The two of us met when we had just started college, in a small vocal ensemble rehearsal. We made eyes at each other when we were supposed to be paying attention to our music, but were too shy to get up the courage to ever date! Somehow we managed to get through four years of college having a giant crush on each other but never letting the other know. Our friends thought we were nuts!
Shortly after graduation, when we both moved to NYC for work, we almost literally bumped into each other in Washington Square Park. It was the middle of the night; Alyson was walking her new puppy, and Danny was on his way to a record release party. We were so surprised to see each other that it jolted us out of our shyness and we finally started up a romance. To make up for lost time we pulled out all the stops, writing each other letters, spending time going to music and art shows, hiking and canoeing, and just generally being gooey in love. Twelve years, a child and a house later, we still have that spark for each other.
The beach is on my mind! We’re getting ready for our trip to Hawaii (four days to go, yay!) and I can’t wait to soak in the sun and sights. I’d love to show more of our previous trips to the beach because we go quite often. My digital copies of our photos have gotten mixed up since I switched computers, so its been like an Easter Egg hunt trying to find everything. Anyhow, here’s a cute throwback photo of Emmy and Danny from when we visited Cape Cod. I’ll post it with the other two pics of that beach trip in our photo album section. Hope you’re having a restful, relaxing weekend! We’re keeping warm and counting down the days til we get to spend time in the sunshine!
