A Special Message To You~

We have deep compassion for the journey that you are going through. We hope our profile will give you an idea of who we are, the love we have to offer a child and most of all, we hope to have the opportunity to get to know you!

Should you choose us to join your journey, we are dedicated to creating an open environment that is comfortable for all of us. We will not become parents without the strength and selflessness of a mother like you. We will make sure your child knows you, your story and the selfless choice you made for them. We promise that your child's story is one of love, inclusion and admiration.

As parents, we promise to provide a caring home that is brimming with love, fun, cuddles and laughter! We will create an environment for our future child where they can enjoy being a kid, be allowed to make mistakes and know they are loved unconditionally. We promise to guide them and help them to pursue the paths that inspire them. We will provide opportunities, experiences and education to help them achieve their dreams and to grow into the people they wish to be. We will love, snuggle, care and cherish them each minute of every single day.

No matter what path you chose, we wish you the very best!

Who We Are

Our adventure together began over 19 years ago. We met in 2000 while we were attending SUNY Potsdam. We had several history classes together and both attended a study abroad trip to London. Not many college kids love history so we are glad we found each other! We bonded over history, museums, food and travel during our time in London and we’ve been together ever since! After graduation we moved to Washington, DC for graduate school and we were married on a beautiful fall day in 2005. We both have successful careers in a large property management company and enjoy working together!

Our lives have been touched by adoption in many ways. Both of our grandfathers, Erin’s paternal aunt and several cousins, Russell’s childhood friend and one of our close friends have all been adopted. With adoption being so prevalent in our lives, we knew from the very beginning that we wanted to build our family through adoption!”

Family is everything to us! We are lucky to have both of our siblings living nearby with their families. They can’t wait to have a little nephew or niece to dote on. Since they live close by, we get to spend lots of time with them, our nieces and nephew. That means lots of pool time, game nights, cookouts and sleepovers!

Russell’s parents live in upstate NY but visit us several times a year and cannot wait to have another grandchild to love! We visit them each fall to pick apples and visit cider mills. We also spend Christmas with them each year. We are close with Russell’s aunts, uncles and cousins and are lucky to have them in our lives.

Erin lost her mother when she was a little girl and was raised by her maternal grandmother with the help of Erin’s 4 aunts, 2 uncles and their spouses. She is very close with her aunts, uncles and cousins. Erin’s cousins live nearby too, which means we have frequent family get-togethers.

Our families get along really well and we all meet in NYC once or twice a year to sight see or go to a baseball game. We also host Thanksgiving every year and both of our families attend, we usually have around 25 people at our house and it is so much fun.

We love to travel! Whether it’s a short road trip or an overseas journey, we find joy in exploring new places, cultures, history and adventures. We also love to cook and entertain family and friends at our home.

We can’t wait to share our lives and explore the world with our future child.
