We can’t wait to be first time parents to your baby and we will love your baby with our whole heart and soul...
Our names are Gary & Annmarie. We want to thank you for reading our profile. We understand that deciding to choose adoption for your baby may be one of the most difficult decisions that you will ever have to make. You have our upmost respect as you will be giving us a gift words cannot convey.
We are both originally from Ireland but we didn’t meet until we came to New York. We have been happily married for many years and have tried everything possible to have a baby which is why we have chosen adoption to fulfill our dreams of having a family.
We know we can provide your baby with a happy and loving home. We will love your baby unconditionally. We want to share with you a look into our lives which will help to show you why we believe that we would be wonderful adoptive parents for your baby.

Thank you for considering us....
We met in 2001 in a steakhouse in New York where I worked. It was love at first sight for Gary! Every Saturday night he came to the steakhouse with his friends. He was always so nice, quiet and kind.
Then one day 24 beautiful white long stem roses came to the restaurant. The waiters were all excited “Annmarie they are for you... I said “Yes, right, haha... I said they are for the private party room tonight”... However I was wrong! They were from Gary with a simple note “Annmarie- Thinking of you - Gary”. That’s when I said “ I must start spending some time with this guy”. ( I still have the note! )
Our first vacation was to San Francisco. We absolutely loved spending time together and we had alot in common being from Ireland. We loved adventure, talking, laughing and making plans.
2 years later we got engaged in Washington. I knew Gary had bought the ring ( because I picked it) but I didn’t know when I was going to get it. We spent 4 days in Washington and no sign of a proposal! I figured it wasn’t the right time. We ate in the nicest of restaurants and his favorite ‘ a steakhouse’ and still no sign of the ring. We were packing to go back to New York when all of a sudden he got down on one knee and proposed!! He had meanwhile carried the ring all around Washington for 4 days waiting for the perfect moment! ( He had brought the ring onboard the plane in his shoe ).....
2 years later we got married in Ireland. We had a wonderful wedding. We got married in a castle. Gary and I live 3 hours apart and over 100 of his family and friends travelled to where I lived. They spent 3 nights and really enjoyed it.
We went to Italy on our honeymoon. We travelled to Venice, Rome & Sorrento. Our favorite place was Venice. We thought it was the most beautiful place. Beautiful canals, gondolas, no cars or pollution. It really was spectacular.
Hopefully someday we will get back and show your child one of our favorite places....
We had Gary’s mum & sister visit from Ireland last week. We had a wonderful time. I brought them sightseeing. We walked the Brooklyn Bridge. We went to Long Island City which overlooks Manhattan from Queens. On St Patricks Day we took them to Manhattan to the parade. We had a wonderful day. We had dinner in our local restaurant. Corned Beef & cabbage was their specialty. It is not a very popular dish in Ireland - in fact very few places serve it. Corned Beef was used as a substitute for bacon by Irish-American immigrants in the late 19th century. We never heard about it until we moved to New York. In Ireland we have boiling bacon & cabbage!
Gary’s family flew home last night. It’s always so nice to have family. We love to be surrounded by family & friends. It means so much to us….
