Steven and I met at an ice cream parlor on Mother’s Day in 2011. We struck up a conversation, and ended up taking a long walk on the beach. We had already been dating for two years when Steve proposed. I said “yes” and we had a sunset wedding overlooking the ocean.
Steven is a committed partner and father. I would describe him as strong, loving, supportive, and reliable.
Steven and I have been together for almost seven years.
We have a great life. We are happy and financially secure. Steven is an attorney who fights for social justice and I manage the law firm. We love making a difference in people’s lives.
I’ve always wanted to be a mom and Steven loves being a dad.
Unfortunately, I am not able to have children. We are both so excited about the possibility of adopting.
We live in a small village in New York close to the water. It’s a close community.
Our Gold Medal school district offers amazing educational and enrichment opportunities. Children in the school are active in art, music, and sports.
In addition to having an excellent school district, our neighborhood is very connected with weekly summer concerts, community garage sales, annual festivals and other events.
I would describe Josie as honest, compassionate and easy to talk to.
She loves physical activities like bike rides, tennis, and evening walks - but is equally comfortable reading a book or painting (she is a great artist).
Josie loves my children from my first marriage Emily, 19 and Kevin, 22 and has gradually become a special part of their lives.
Josie loves being a step-mom and has a natural mothering nature. She is patient, supportive, encouraging and a great role model for the kids.
Kevin was the best man at our wedding and Emily was the maid of honor.
They are super excited for us to adopt. As big brother and sister, they look forward to spoiling this child.
I'm truly grateful for Josie as a wife, partner, and mother.
I would describe Steven as genuine, caring, affectionate and supportive. He is very responsible and reliable.
He is a great dad with close relationships with both of his children. He takes pride in caring for his family.
I can’t imagine a better person to raise children and spend the rest of my life with.
