Who We Are
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 are in 1996/97. 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.
In 2018 we started the adoption process that brought us Joslyn. It was a beautiful journey that began with meeting her mother, being there for her birth and finally taking her home. We have so much gratitude for Joslyn's Mother. Our relationship has always been open with her and we continue to keep contact with and share our daughter's growth and development with her Mother.

We spent a wonderful week hiking through the Alps with Dan’s family. Wonderful vistas and amazing food. We can’t wait to take our baby to our next adventure!
