Through the years we have learned many life lessons. There has been highs and lows. We have learned about all the sides of adoption...the losses prior, the waiting, the being scared, the unknown and the rewards. We have had a long journey to get to this point of adopting our second child and growing our family. We can't imagine how you the expectant mother must feel reading all the profiles, it has to be emotional and hard for anyone to know if they are selecting the right family. For us it is also emotional... we check our phone, text, email, social media, all day every day waiting to be chosen. We know that this is not simple decision making and we strongly believe however things are meant to be, they will be. How God intended for everyone involved. We will be a triangle of faith, with the child (children) at the highest point, the birth parents at the beginning point, and us the adoptive parents forming the third point to complete this amazing and blessed shape. We believe that we have a lot of strengths as parents to offer children. This is who we are... a regular couple with a dream of having a family and carrying on the traditions and values that we know.
Our house is the one where everyone likes to gather for holidays, and on the weekends. We love to have people over...any chance to be together and have fun! Our backyard is perfect for outdoor playing, there are so many kids in our neighborhood there is never a shortage of playdates! We have enough bedrooms for each child to have their own room. We really enjoy where we live in the suburbs of New York. We are close enough to take advantage of all the culture of the big city, like museums and shows but also near a lot of outdoor activities and the beach. Alexa and the brother or sister she welcomes will enjoy playing at parks, beach trips and days spent in the city, for years to come.
Billy is a big kind teddy bear. He can't wait to share his passion for sports with Alexa and the little brother or sister we hope to welcome... for sure he will be their biggest fan! Billy carries over valuable lessons from sports and applies it to his daily life... being a leader, team player, and loyal person. He definitely will be involved with coaching and teaching our children, in sports and in life!
Niki loves to be silly
"laughter is the best medicine".
but she also has a serious side too.
she is a really good listener and problem solver.
Niki enjoys reading stories and doing art projects with Alexa and can't wait to share these times with another child we are hoping to welcome into our family. Her career for many years was based on helping women look and feel their best. One of the best feelings is giving back and paying it forward, Niki has done a lot of fundraising for breast cancer awareness. She is super comfortable in her next chapter nurturing and raising children; and is very dedicated to her families wants and needs. Her best role yet, helping mold our sweet daughter who came to us through adoption into the amazing girl that she is. Niki has a huge amount of love in her heart and will love our second child unconditionally".
