Loving Interracial Couple Hoping to Adopt First Child

Dear Expectant Mom/Family,

Our names are Julie and Tony. Thank you for considering us on your journey to finding a perfect family for your baby. We are honored! We are writing to give you a glimpse of our lives. Tony and I are hopeful and waiting to be parents in Westchester County, NY. We met and fell in love while teaching in New York City.

Tony is thoughtful and reserved. He observes the world around him and appreciates everything about it. He has taught me to slow down and take everything in. Tony is also really funny, his humor is dry and witty. He keeps us in a fun mood constantly. He is interested in politics, sailing, and loves basketball. He has played since grade school and was captain of his college team.

Julie is chatty and crafty. She spends her time singing along to musicals (she's actually good!) and attempting one Youtube craft after another. She has a large tight-knit family and a core group of cousins she loves to spend time with. She's taught me to take risks and go on adventures. Julie learned how to kayak on the Hudson River a few years back and goes back every month, even in winter!

We have two dogs, Jelly and Mabel, and a cat, Tillie. We call this little pack, "our girls". We love and spoil them with toys and attention. They travel with us to our family lakehouse every summer and they're showered with attention and too many treats by our friends and family. They will be a kid's best friends. We imagine our girls and our baby romping around in our backyard, building a bond, and making memories. We came to adoption after several years of infertility. Eventually, after putting her body through the wringer, Julie looked up at me and said "our baby is out there somewhere. We're going to be parents". We want to be parents. That is the ultimate goal. Adoption is not a second choice, it is our road to making our family.

Our hearts are so full of love, it spills over! We love to document everyday experiences and would be open to sharing updates and milestones with you! We are open to as much or as little communication as you would be comfortable with. Our priority is to follow your lead and your adoption plan. If you are comfortable meeting us, it would be a pleasure to meet with you to let you know how much you mean to us. We have been praying for you for years. We want you to know how incredibly special you are as an expectant mother/family, and as an individual!


With all of our Love,
Julie and Tony
(and Jelly, Mabel &Tillie)

Who We Are

We are fun-loving, active, and caring couple from New York. We live in a suburb 30 minutes from NYC.
Long before we met, Tony grew up in New Rochelle, Ny and Julie grew up in the South Bronx. Our paths unknowingly crossed when we took teaching jobs in the same school building in the South Bronx. We worked in separate schools within the same building.
Focused, dedicated and diligent as we were about out teaching, we never took notice of each other. Our friends now say there were at least two occasions in which we spoke , neither of us has any recollection of that.

We finally found each other on Match.com. We met for our first date outside of the school building where we'd both been working for three years! The sparks flew that night. Our humor and personalities are so similar. We grew up with the same love for family and values of honor and honesty. The same values we hope to raise our child with.

We balance each other perfectly. Tony is the calm to Julie's more energetic personality. Tony is the spontaneity to Julie's perfectly planned itinerary. We love spending time with each other or hosting friends and family for dinner parties and game nights. We love traveling and going on hikes.

We cannot wait to include our little one in all of the fun and encourage them to go on their own adventures.

Adoption Diary

Giving Thanks

As we sit here nursing our food hangovers, we decided to share a bit about what we’re thankful for this year. It took us quite a while to get to the point where we feel grateful about anything. 2020 has just been a tornado of suckiness all around, for most (if not all ) of the world. 
For us personally, this year has had its disappointing moments. However, while there has been so much uncertainty for many, we have been able to continue working and continue to bring in income. We have grown stronger and more secure in our marriage, which is incredibly difficult being stuck in the same house for about 8 months! Most importantly, in the midst of a global pandemic, We have remained healthy. So grateful!
Onward!

Date Night

Tony and I went on a date last night. These have been few and far between with a global pandemic going on. We promised to ALWAYS make time for each other and to create experiences for each other.
Last night we had dinner in our own rooftop cabin! So fun and so intimate.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile
