Who We Are
We met on the dance floor in 2009 at a local restaurant in our town. (Tom has some amazing moves!) We struck up a conversation and started dating soon after. From the beginning, it was clear that we had so much in common and that we truly complemented each other—the yin to each other’s yang! We were engaged 5 years later and got married in 2015 with a massive, weekend-long celebration with all of our family and friends at a mountain resort in upstate New York.
When we discussed the dream of our family, adoption was a path that we felt drawn to from the very beginning. We both envisioned a large family and knew that we wanted adoption to play a role in building it. After trying to conceive for many years and facing some heartbreaking losses, we are excited to start our adoption journey to make our dreams of our family come true.
Spring is Joanna’s favorite time of the year. After the long winter the days are getting brighter, the temps are slowing rising and our garden beds are slowly starting to thaw. The snowdrops and crocuses are popping up in the yard, the daffodils are starting to peak out of the soil and will soon be joined by the tulips. Joanna has been planning some improvements to her vegetable beds all winter and can’t wait to start spending the days planting and pruning. The good news is Pierogi is super skilled at digging holes!
The other weekend we added a new member to our family! Meet Pierogi, a 4.5 month old puppy that we adopted from our local SPCA. He captured our hearts when we met him! He’s so friendly—and look at those ears! We THINK he is a Lab/Terrier mix although we can’t be sure! What we are sure about it is that he is adorable and a fantastic addition to our home!
He loves treats, naps in the sunshine and is already making friends with other doggos in our neighborhood.
We are so happy to have found him!
