Who We Are

We met in 2005 in Manhattan and became friends almost immediately. Our first few years together were an adventure. The first year of our relationship was long distance which provided some challenges, but it also gave us the opportunity to truly learn everything about one another by having endless phone conversations and visiting each other whenever possible. Then our second year together, we moved to Siena, Italy for a year in order for Joann to complete part of her Master’s degree. After those first two years of traveling and adventure, we landed in Brooklyn, NY. We married in 2012 and after 14 years together, we are still here, by each other's side. We consider ourselves so lucky to have found one another and we try our best every day to not take that for granted. Throughout our relationship, we’ve been lucky enough to travel to many places, but in the end no matter where we are, as long as we are together, we are happy and everything else is just icing on the cake. Though our struggle with infertility was difficult, it served us by making us stronger and closer as a couple. It also showed us that in times of need we are there for each other and it made us realize that we did not need a biological connection to our child in order to love him or her unconditionally. Our path may not be one most couples have to travel, but because of the strong base we have, we have been able to get through everything together. Our hearts are filled with love and excitement at the thought of becoming parents and we can’t wait to share all the love we have in our hearts with a child. Oh, and we can’t forget about Lorenzo! We rescued our dog Lorenzo four years ago. He is just the sweetest little dog that anyone could ever ask for. He is so gentle and loving with everyone and especially loves being around small children!
