We find ourselves incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to meet you and this beautiful child. We want nothing more than to create a life full of wonder and joy in this child. You are giving us a gift in a child that we loved before we even knew it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a purpose in this thing called life.
We met in the summer of 2013 while Dan was visiting friends and family in Western New York. Now it may not have been "love at first sight" but we figured out early on that we were meant to be together.
Dan is originally from Italy and was a foreign exchange student in the area in 1996. Since then he kept close ties with the "host family". His frequent visits allowed him to establish a community in the area and we actually had a few common friends before we met.
We started dating immediately and after several months it was obvious that we were serious about each other. Later that year we married with the love and support of our family. Since then we would have to describe our relationship as loving and caring with an ultimate dream to build a family.
We just went to pick up Dan’s mom at the airport. Pina will be staying with us for few weeks and she will be preparing delicious meals. It’s also a good opportunity for Joel to learn some more Italian. So exciting!!
