Who We Are
Starting a family has always been a dream of ours – one we’re happy to finally see come true. We have always known that we wanted to adopt and we’re excited to welcome a child into our loving and accepting home.
Steve was born and raised on Long Island while Dan grew up 30 minutes north of New York City. We met in 2011 while both attending Hofstra University. Dan volunteered to act in a student film which Steve was asked to help produce. It was love at first sight!
It didn’t take long for us to realize that we had found the person we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with. After Dan graduated in 2012, we maintained a long-distance relationship while Steve finished out the last year of college. Although the distance was challenging, we were dedicated to making it work. Not long after Steve graduated, we found a home and began building our life together.
Steve completed his master’s degree in social work and is currently providing psychotherapy and support to children in the local school districts. Dan has made a fulfilling career at a nationwide nonprofit supporting patients with kidney disease.
We have planned out our baby’s primary care for the early years. At the start, we will both be alternating our paid time off from work. Because Dan works remotely from home and Steve has the summers off, we will be able to devote plenty of time to nurturing our child. Both of our immediate families and close friends live nearby so we’ll have no shortage of support when needed.
We’ve missed going to the movies! We just didn’t miss having to share an arm rest ;)
Some of our favorite memories as kids was going to the movies with our families and seeing the latest blockbuster. (Special shout out to Jurassic Park and Men in Black) We can’t wait to make new cinematic memories with our children!
We can’t believe it’s been 6 years since we moved in. This was taken the day we turned this house into a home. Can’t wait watch our family grow in these four walls.
