We have fun together- whether it’s traveling, going to a soccer match or a Broadway show or staying at home on the couch watching tv or reading. Our marriage and our family have been built on a foundation of trust and love, and while we have our struggles, we are 100% committed to our marriage and our family.
We met in August 2013, and our relationship moved quickly once we realized how happy we were together. We share a lot of the same goals, values, ideals, and sense of humor. We knew right away that starting a family was our top priority and in August 2016, we were thrilled to welcome our son, Mason.
As we’ve considered our options for adding to our family, adoption has always been top of mind. Over the past several years, we have realized that there is a missing piece to our family. We know that we want to raise another child and would love to have the opportunity to grow our family via adoption.
If you have any questions for us, or would like to like to speak to us about becoming adoptive parents, please call us anytime at (908) 399-0885 or email us at SaraAndDavidAdopt@gmail.com.
We live in a suburb of New Jersey, about 45 minutes outside of NYC. We have a beautiful four-bedroom house with a fenced in backyard. We have an empty bedroom just waiting to be filled and lots of room to run around.
One of the main reasons we moved was to make sure our children have access to a great education, and our town has some of the top-rated public schools in the state. We live on a tree-lined, dead-end street, with a park at the end of the block. Our neighborhood is full of children and they all play together and will attend school together.
We are so happy that we live close to our friends and family, the majority of whom live nearby. We love to have friends and family over (pre-COVID!) and are happy to have the space to host holidays and get-togethers. We are fortunate to be part of such a great community and have been getting more involved in local activities and events.
I grew up in the suburbs of New York with my parents, brother and sister, two dogs and a cat. Our entire family lives in the tri-state area and we see them regularly. We’re very lucky to have lots of support nearby- Mason adores his aunts, uncles, cousins and grandmas.
I consider myself to be a strong, successful, fun-loving and caring person. I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mom and having our son has been a dream come true. I can’t wait to add to our family! I have a very tight-knit group of friends and have been “Aunt” Sara to their children for years. I love bringing people together and organizing social activities; our door is always open for friends and family to stop by.
I work from home as a Chief People Officer (Head of Human Resources) for a technology company, and truly love what I do. My job afforded me the opportunity to travel the world and now allows the flexibility for me to work from home. Helping professionals fulfill their career goals through coaching, training, and mentoring is a very rewarding way to spend my time when I’m not with my family.
I love to read and have hopefully passed on that love to our son. I enjoy going to concerts and Broadway shows – we are very lucky to live so close to New York City. I’m very active and try to take yoga and cycling classes several times a week. Travel is my passion. There’s nothing I love more than exploring a new country and discovering its culture! The pandemic has certainly changed some of our habits, but I have enjoyed getting to spend so much time with David, Mason and Murray!
I was born in Brooklyn, NY, but grew up an hour outside the city in southern NY state. Our grandparents lived in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and we were fortunate to visit them often to experience both city and country life. Perhaps this is where my interest in travel came from. I also have a brother, sister and three nieces, who we visit with regularly.
I love to travel and also enjoy photography, attending sporting events (I'm a huge New York Red Bulls soccer fan!), and watching movies. I also enjoy cooking - influenced by my grandmother who was a great cook and my father who worked in the food & beverage industry and taught at the Culinary Institute of America.
I worked in New York City as a Media Executive, consulting with organizations on their media strategies for over 20 years. Since our son was born, I have taken some time off from my career to be a stay at home dad. I love the relationship that my son and I have developed over the past few years, and it's been a privilege to help him develop and grow into the wonderful little boy he has become.
I am very conscious of what works in a relationship and my views on raising children. I try to consider the type of home I want to live in, how I want people to treat and view each other and how I want children to be raised. I think that at the end of the day a lot is about love and respect.
