Mark & Eleanor

We are a loving couple from Hudson Valley, NY excited to expand our family through adoption!

Hello, we are Mark and Eleanor (Ellie)! Thank you for spending some time to read about who we are and why we are adopting.

We hope that by getting a glimpse into our lives, you see what kind of family your child will grow up in and see how much we will love and care for them.

We promise to not take the child for granted. They will grow up in a loving home, filled with laughter, learning, and fun. We will raise them with unconditional love, to grow to be a great person, open-minded and open-hearted. We will teach the child and explain to him/her of their adoption journey and the great sacrifices that are made from their birth mother. Without knowing the openness, you prefer, we hope to keep an open relationship with you, but we will respect your choices.

Who We Are

Hi, we’re Mark and Eleanor (Ellie)! Thank you for visiting our page, we are excited to share our story with you on why we are adopting and who we are.

Our story is similar to many couples that find each other online, but that day, the day that we met online, felt like the stars were aligned. Back in 2012, Eleanor, new to online dating, created a profile and matched with many guys and Mark, was one of them. Mark, who has been using online dating apps, got a message from Eleanor, replied, and hit it off and went on a first date. The first date was to a baseball game, because Eleanor, a Mets fan and Mark, a Yankee fan decided to go to a game, tickets were cheap, and perhaps finding each other’s differences (Mets and Yankees rivalry) was a good place to start in finding commonalities. And we really enjoyed each other’s company. We had many of the same interests and our lifestyle complemented each other. Throughout our relationship we enjoy traveling, hiking, and cooking dinners together. After several years of dating, Mark proposed to Eleanor at Eleanor’s favorite spot, Niagara Falls. We got married in 2016.

We always knew that we wanted to start a family, but we found out after a year of trying that we couldn’t conceive a child naturally. We took our time to discuss our options and our decision always came back to adoption. We decided that adoption was something we both felt was right for our family and so we started our journey with Adoption STAR. We are ready to become parents and cannot wait to welcome a child into our family!
