Chris & Suzy

Married couple from outside NYC — and a future big sister

Hi — and thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves.

We're a longtime couple, recently celebrating our eighth anniversary. Chris is a lawyer and Suzy is a writer. Since we became parents, we’ve experienced such joy taking our daughter, Gigi, on adventures big and small. We’ve built a beautiful life in our sweet river town outside New York City with our families and friends nearby.

While we love our life together as a trio, we want to grow our family to four through adoption. For us, it's the second child we have hoped for, and for our daughter, it's the sibling she is ready to love and protect for life. We promise to work with you to find a level of openness you feel comfortable with. We will discuss how much contact you would like and will be by your side during this journey. We also promise to give your baby a great life with many opportunities, yes, but most importantly with overflowing amounts of love.

Please reach out at any time. We are waiting with open hearts. Love, Chris & Suzy

Who We Are

Our friends played matchmaker for us more than a decade ago. Chris had finished law school and returned to work in his hometown (New York City) where Suzy (also a New Yorker) worked as a writer. We met at a birthday party. We bonded over bike rides, binge-watching TV, the Beatles and just bopping around Brooklyn. We soon learned we had similar upbringings — and even figured out that for years, and before we had ever met, our families had been vacationing each summer at the same place at the same time. (They probably walked past each other on the sidewalk.) That vacation place served as the perfect spot for our wedding.

The best thing to happen since our wedding was having our daughter, Gigi. It wasn’t easy getting pregnant, so it was a great excitement
when it happened. Our goal was always to give Gigi a sibling — and knew quickly adoption was the right way to grow our family. One thing we didn’t expect on our journey was just how much she would want a brother or sister herself. Gigi can’t wait to have a sibling to love. It has made adoption so much more natural and obvious.

Adoption Diary

We love Halloween

If you didn’t sense it from our Wizard of Oz profile photo, we love Halloween.

Being a parent has just been so fun for us. It helped that we were in our 30s, no FOMO on things with friends, and were stable and in love.

It’s been just a joy to watch our girl experience things for the first time. Swimming. Making a snow angel. And every holiday — including Halloween.

Last year was pretty epic — she decided our family would be the Wizard of Oz, giving roles to everyone, including grandma and grandpa, her aunt and uncle and fur-cousin. It was a lot of ruby slippers and Cowardly Lion costumes to buy, but worth every penny.

We honestly don’t do a ton of trick-or-treating, just about 5 houses in the neighborhood Suzy grew up in. It was more about having a little party with little cousins and other aunts and uncles. How much candy can a 3-year-olds have anyway?

We’re still looking forward to a scaled down version of it with out “pod.” And Gigi is planning all the costumes — with more of a creepy theme after watching a lot of “Scooby-Doo” this year.

We’ll leave you with a photo of us in a Halloween past. The little monkey, the big banana and the zookeeper.

We are not a pumpkin spice family…**

But we do love fall.

New York shines bright in the fall. The leaves give a natural light show, from north to south. There are farms everywhere for prime pumpkin and picking. And Washington Irving’s “Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” with the Headless Horseman, was created here, making the area all that more spook-tacular.

We get into it each year. We go to a farm for apple picking and pie baking. (Random fact: Suzy used to have a fun side hobby selling homemade pies to a local farm here, and they would sell out before she even got them out of the car.) We scare up pumpkins and eat cider donuts. And we don’t need to go anywhere to leaf peep. It’s gorgeous right where we are. The peak week is always right around Halloween.

But it’s just great to be outside. Over the weekend we walked — and Gigi scooted — on a rail trail around a gorgeous lake. The temperature has been perfect. The air feels so nice — even under a mask.

We are also planning our Halloween costumes. Gigi is in charge, as always, so we’ve cycled through a few themes and will be deciding on one this week.

So that’s what we’re up to these days — and enjoying every colorful moment.

Bye for now,
SCG

***No offense to pumpkin spice fans. LOL.
