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.
We celebrated Tom’s birthday the other week! We were so lucky to have a stretch of perfect weather, so we went for a hike near our home with Pierogi and had a small get together with some of our neighborhood friends where we celebrated with Tacos and a Cookie Cake! What is your favorite way to celebrate birthdays?
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!
