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 after consulting with doctors, we decided to begin fertility treatments. In December 2015, we were thrilled to learn we were expecting and are now the proud parents to a beautiful two and a half year-old boy named Mason.
We have had a busy few years - getting engaged and then married, having a baby and buying a house - but we've realized that we are still missing a piece to our family.
As we've considered our options for adding to our family, adoption has always been top of mind. 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.
In 2018, we moved from New York City to a suburb in New Jersey. 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 has been very welcoming.
Being in New Jersey has given us the chance to be closer to our friends and family, the majority of which live nearby. We love to have friends and family over and are happy to have the space to host holidays and get togethers on a regular basis. We are fortunate to be part of such a great community and are excited to get more involved in local activities and events.
We come from a close knit family, where we each have a brother and a sister, and lots of extended family that we see regularly. We have three nieces and lots of cousins, aunts and uncles that live nearby. Both of our mothers are retired, and spend a lot of time with Mason. Sunday dinners, birthdays and holidays are all spent together and as our family expands we are creating new traditions.
We are also very fortunate to have close friends that we consider family in our lives. Everyone is very excited for us to add to our family!!
I grew up in Staten Island, New York in a typical suburban setting. I lived with my parents, brother and sister, two dogs and a cat. Our entire family lives in the tri-state area and my mom comes to visit Mason at least once a week.
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 Mason 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 as a Human Resources Director at a media agency in New York City, 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 several days a week. 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 Mason. I enjoy going to concerts and Broadway shows - we are very lucky to live so close to New York City. I'm very active, I 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!
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 Mason was born, I have taken some time off from my career to be a stay at home dad. I love the relationship that Mason 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.
