Hello, we are Amy and Kris. Thank you for considering us. We have been together for over 12 years. Our hearts are open and waiting for a child. We truly appreciate you. We are open to any level of involvement you feel comfortable with.
We promise to you and your child: we will read to your child every day and provide a loving home. Amy is a book editor and Kris works for a University. The child will have opportunities to have an excellent education and experience a diverse and multicultural childhood filled with wonder. We will have sleepovers with the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum and watch Moana, Lilo & Stitch, and Frozen, on repeat if needed. We have so much love to give a child.
• We believe in simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality.
• We believe in curiosity, magic, wonder, love and respect.
• We believe in kindness and the value of diverse points of view.
• We believe something special happens when you sing and when you dance.
• We believe in the enchantment of reading, in the super power of imagination.
Creativity and laughter plus music make up our life together. We planned our own wedding in a garden with a full New England clambake and a taste of Hawaii. At the end of the wedding ceremony, we placed fresh leis around the necks of each other’s families as our band played the Hawaiian version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
The day was festive with live Hawaiian music and hula dancers. We both knew we wanted it to be fun and oriented around the things we loved, and our friends came together to act as the wedding band and DJ, and danced hula for us.
Kris played a song on the ukulele for Amy. Even now people talk about how special it was. We try to keep this joy alive in our household, singing and playing music together.
We have stable and fulfilling work with a good income. Amy works in publishing and Kris works in higher education at a University. We both have flexibility in our schedules and plan to raise a child together. We are able to afford a good quality of life.
Here is a little bit of love for anyone who needs it right now. Walking in midtown Manhattan with everyone rushing around and trying to get somewhere…it’s refreshing to be stopped in your tracks by Love. Everyone carries some around with them at all times. It is useful in emergencies. There is nothing that can’t be made better without some.
If you are lucky, someone will share some with you. Take some, there’s plenty more to go around.
This was in downtown Manhattan, on a pier by the river. Our friend Tommy was teaching kids how to dance with puppets he created. I played music to accompany the song and dance. It was a sunny day filled with all the possibility of blue skies and friendly faces. Sharing smiles and a song and how puppets can just make your day.
