About Me

My Story

Since I was 3 ½ years old, I’ve wanted to be a mom. Simply put, I just love children. I feel like I am at my best when I am nurturing, encouraging, supporting and unconditionally loving children. I am so ready to become a mom – emotionally, logistically and financially so ready to make your child the center of my world.

I come from a really devoted family. My parents, Ferne and Bill are such great parents and they are so thrilled about my adoption plan. My brother Seth, sister-in-law Amy (yes, we are Amy and Aimee) and nephews Loga n and Colin want to be a huge part of your child’s life.

I love kids! From the moment that my younger brother Seth came home, I took great pleasure in raising him from an infant to an adult because in my mind, he was mine. He was my baby brother and I was going to protect him, bring him everywhere with me, and do everything together as we were close enough in age. The bond between us is one of the most sacred priorities in my life. To this day, while my brother and I may have different interests and careers, we are bonded by an invisible thread. This means that love, loyalty, commitment to family, laughter and protection of our own, outweigh everything else.

My Home

photo of adoptive family's home Living in New York, you have the seasons and there is so much for children to do, from summers in the mountains, ice cream dates at the local mom and pop shop with the other moms and their kids, afternoons at the movies seeing whatever the newest film is being made by Marvel or Disney, to the Fall where you can go apple picking, dressing up for Halloween, Thanksgiving with the family while taking in the Macys Day Parade.

In December, Christmas Time and the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center is amazing. We celebrate Christmas and open presents with my brother Seth, sister-in-law Amy and my nephews and their extended family. The winter months, you can go sledding and skiing and then when Spring hits, you are coming up on Easter, an egg hunts, and Spring Break with friends and family to everything from a place like Great Wolf Lodge (indoor water park) or even a trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas which has all the dream amenities that children love. So many of these experiences are just a short road trip away or quick flight. New York City offers a lot but when you need a getaway, you can be anywhere in 90 minutes or less.

adoptive family photo - Aimee I understand that all children are unique in their own ways and so I will expose your child to lots of different activities. I know that from personal experience, every person is not good at or enjoys every activity. From the time I was young, when I started out in ballet, it became very evident from the instructor to my mom, that I was not cut out for that type of dance and that I belonged in a different activity. Onto the outdoors I went and onto to the tennis court. My mom thought that some type of after school activities would be fun for me but it didn't really matter what it would be. I intend to have the same philosophy with your child. I want to expose him or her to as many activities as possible until they find their own special/talents or interests. I will encourage whatever talents they may have.

I ended up really loving tennis. It excited me and became a part of my daily routine up through college. I went on to train very hard in tennis, playing every day, tennis tournaments on the weekends, team tennis at school and then onto collegiate play in college.

I also plan to provide family-oriented activities such as summer camp, family trips all across the world, sit down to dinner as a family every night, we spent a lot of time with family friends. Like my parents, I will help your child become independent and make a lot of decisions for him or herself. And like my parents, when he or she makes mistakes, falls down and I would pick him or her back up. This is the environment I would like and hope to provide for your child.

My maternal Grandma, who I called BoBo was a very important part of my life and my parents plan to be very close with your child. I don’t know where my nickname for her came from, I just said it one day at a family party and she shouted out, that I was calling out to her and declared she was BOBO. I guess she wanted to be the first one whose name I said. I had a very unique relationship with her. I adored my parents but my BoBo was very special. My dad and I share the same drive, same personalities, same sensitivities, not afraid to cry, fiercely loyal, sports fanatics, big fans of music etc. However, nobody had a greater impact on me, than my grandmother. She did not go to college and she barely finished high school. She immediately got a job and in later years ran two major nightclub businesses, in NYC that were world renown. As a woman, in that day and age, nobody messed with her and everyone respected her. If you did right by my grandma, she did right by you. But if you didn’t, you probably wanted to sprint out of town. Her business entrepreneurial skills were instilled in me from a young age and I always wanted to hear stories about her, from her. I wanted to understand her childhood and her adulthood and how she got to where she did.

My mother and father were very moved by the relationship between my grandmother and myself, so much so that when my brother had children and they became grandparents, it was important to them to share that same bond with their grandchildren. My parents are eager to continuing that relationship with your child. My parents want to be role models but they also want to do and be what grandparents love to do which is spoil their grandchildren and show them off to their friends.

I spent my childhood years in Miami, and many of those friends are still in my life today. I think there is something to be said about the choices we all made in who we chose as our “framily”. Miami was a great place to grow up and I plan to vacation with your child in Florida a lot. I love seasons in New York but in Florida, it’s always warm and a wonderful place to visit. The beaches, what child doesn't love a beach and making sand castles and playing in the water. I, in fact love a beach and I still like making sand castles so the thought of doing this with your child and reliving my happy childhood memories through them is that feeling emotionally you really can’t describe. If it’s not a day at the beach, then a pool with a slide and diving board, or water theme parks, followed by a trip to a local favorite restaurant for hamburgers, French Fries and a milkshake. A weekend in Disney World, I mean who doesn't want to meet Mickey Mouse or Snow White or experience Star Wars Galaxy at Universal Studios.
