Fun, family oriented couple in NYC - welcome to our world!

Hi, we're Amy and Henry. We met in 2003, married in 2005, and we are so excited to grow our family! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
Adoption's always been an option for us. We each have a cousin who was adopted, so we grew up understanding it as simply another way to become parents. It's important for us to maintain a connection to our child's birth family - how that works is something we can all figure out together.
As hopeful parents, we believe in giving children independence and responsibility. Childhood is such a short time; it's important to let kids be kids - silly, unstructured, adventurous, imaginative. At the same time, children should learn how to take care of themselves and be part of the community, all taught with love. There's a bunch of kids in our family waiting to be silly with, and be an example for, a new little cousin!
We can't wait to share our life with a child, and we'd be so honored if you would consider placing your baby with us!

Who We Are

We met on match.com. After discovering we had a mutual friend, we each got her "approval" and chatted online for a bit before meeting in person. Amy surprised Henry at work the afternoon before our planned dinner date. We each knew right away that this was something special, and we've been inseparable ever since!

We both grew up on Long Island, and now live in a quiet residential neighborhood in NYC. Amy has one younger brother, who's married and has one daughter. Henry has an older sister, married with a daughter and a son. We're very close with our families and it seems there is a big get-together at least once a month.

We have two rescue cats who entertain us every day. They're great cuddle buddies too, when they're not trying to steal our food.

We love our life and have worked hard to get where we are. We've come through some hardships and are always grateful for what we have, and the friends and family who supported us along the way.

If you've read this far you know family is important to us. If you choose to place your child with us, that family will include you! It's very important that our child knows where they came from, so we'll work with you to find an arrangement you're comfortable with.

Adoption Diary

Stay safe, stay busy

Amy is prepared to ride out the quarantine with cross-stitch, embroidery and sewing! Stay safe, everyone!

Two eggs are better than one

Our hawk neighbors laid their second egg! Since we really can’t go out now, it’s good we have some entertainment right outside our bedroom window!
