Loving Brooklyn Couple Seeks First Child

We are Johanna and Brad and we are very pleased to “meet” you. Thank you for considering us to be the adoptive parents of your child. We realize this is a difficult time for you, and we think you are very courageous, loving and giving for considering adoption to help a couple who is not able to have children on their own become parents. We hope that this brief window into our lives will give you peace of mind knowing how much we would love and devote ourselves to your child and the stable, supportive home that we would provide.

We love children and always knew we wanted to raise a child together. We are not able to have children on our own and have chosen adoption as the way to make that dream come true. We know that raising a child will have its unexpected challenges as well as joys, and we are ready for the task. We are fortunate to have supportive family, established careers, and a wonderful home in New York City. Most importantly, we have a strong relationship filled with love. We are eager to share this all with a child.

Who We Are

We had our first conversation in 2003. We had met several times before that but were too shy to talk to one another. We started talking one night at the birthday party of a friend that Johanna knew from college and Brad knew from law school. Brad told Johanna that night that he really liked her but had a girlfriend, so, naturally, she told him to go away. Brad found Johanna eight months later using Friendster, a precursor of Facebook. We soon discovered that we shared a love of art, Italy and food!

After a few dates we were both certain that we were meant to be together. Since then, without exception, we have taken care of each other and made one another laugh.

We got engaged at sunrise in Mexico in 2007 and were married in 2008 at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, surrounded by our friends and family, in a ceremony and reception featuring poetry, laughter, wonderful food, and dancing. It rained, but we are proof of the saying that this must be good luck, especially when we have supported each other through some of life’s most challenging obstacles.
After 15 years, we still just love being together. We eat dinner together almost every night, whether Johanna cooks (and Brad cleans), or we order take-out. Brad unfailingly texts when he is leaving work and when he’s twenty minutes away so that Johanna can prepare dinner.

Both of our parents set great examples of how to sustain a loving and caring marriage. We have learned much from them, not least of all how to communicate and work through problems.

We enjoy taking art classes together, going for long walks in the park or (preferably!) at the beach, and going to the theater or live music.
