Playful, Loving, Generous Couple! NY hubby and wife team of 16 years open to all forms of adoption.
Hi! I’m Amy, a hopeful adoptive mom. My husband Joe and I would love to get to know you and your family and understand your wishes for your child. We have big hearts and big plans and can't wait to include you in them!
Joe is 100% Italian, and I am half Irish, with a little Italian and Greek mixed in. Our families have blended together in the most remarkable way. We love to get together for family meals and have a lot of great cooks in the family. Joe makes incredible pizzas and mac n’ cheese sometimes entirely from scratch, sauce, dough and all! I love making eggplant parm and cavatelli and broccoli. When we aren’t in the kitchen, you can find us playing a game of bocce or wiffleball, and spending time together on the water. My mom lives on a lake where we do a lot of boating, swimming and fishing. We are all big baseball fans. We live 10 minutes from Yankee Stadium so we get to see a lot of games! Joe grew up playing baseball and now coaches his godson, so your child will get to know the game very well!
I already have a lot of personal and professional experience with adoption. I currently counsel families who have adopted a child. It’s something I’m passionate about as I was adopted at one month old and had a wonderful upbringing.
As adoptive parents, Joe and I want to respect your needs first and foremost. We think a semi-open or open relationship is wonderful. We promise to share with our child the thought, love and planning that went into finding his/her parents. We will include you in your child's development through photos, videos and letters at the frequency you request. We are also open to visits if that is something you want. Birth family is family!
Joe and I are at a point in our careers where we can take a step back and be very present for our child. We plan to share our time at home, so he/she is always with her mommy or daddy in the early years before school starts. We think it's important that we raise our child. Joe is a musician and a talented songwriter. We can't wait to write and sing our child original lullabies at bedtime.
There will also be lots of visits with Nanny and Grammy, our two moms who stayed at home with us to teach us how to read, write, sing, play, dance and enjoy family life! There will be many kids around to have a catch, swing on the swings, play Uno, swap snacks, jump in the puddles and do cartwheels and so much more. Living outside NYC also means that your child will be exposed to a rich upbringing, with diverse culture, music, sports, food and people.
We recognize that this is a tremendous decision that comes with a range of mixed feelings and we will be supportive of all the highs and lows. As a child psychologist, I know the benefits of having a great support network and people you trust to listen to you and understand your experience.
Please feel free to text/call us with any questions we haven’t answered 800-264-4960. If you wanted to meet us in person at any time, we would cover your expenses to travel to NY, or we could travel to you. We also have more info on our website www.amyandjoeadopt.com
We send you all our good wishes no matter what you decide!
With love, Amy & Joe
