Richie & David

Fashion, TV & Film Talent Manager and Technology Executive yearn to devote our lives to your baby.

Hello, we are Richie and David.

Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to introduce ourselves and share with you our life and family. We know you have a very big decision to make and are so grateful in being considered as adoptive parents to your child.

We know that your love for your child is unconditional and eternal. The choice you may be making for your child is undoubtedly out of selfless love, and one that will forever have a lasting imprint on their life and potentially ours. You should know that your consideration for adoption is so very brave, and any parent that strong-hearted, truly possesses deep love inside for their child.

We hope that you feel supported no matter where you are in your journey, and should you choose adoption for your child, we hope we can shed light on how we will whole-heartedly accept them into our lives.

We know this journey for you is not easy, but we hope that we can provide support for you in a way like our family and friends have provided for us. Especially how they will be celebrating with us when we finally get the chance to welcome a child into our home. We are blessed to have such a loving and supportive family on both sides. Grandparents and parents who love us unconditionally. Throughout our coming out journey, they have been there every step of the way for both of us individually, and now together as a couple hoping to grow their family.

Aside from our blood relatives, we have our chosen family. Our friends who have been rooting for us since day one, who are so excited to be aunties and uncles themselves, who some now have young children that can hopefully soon call on us for playdates.

While we know words and photos can only share a small glimpse into our lives and not show the full picture of the kind of family we are and can be, we hope that it was enough for you to continue considering us as someone who can be the right family to care for and love your child. If you believe so, we would be thrilled to learn more about you, your journey, your hopes and dreams for your child, and how we can be your support through this immensely difficult time for you.

Ultimately, whatever you choose your journey to be for both you and your child, we wish you a blessed life and thank you for your time and consideration. May you only know rainbows, and never the rain.

With Love,
Richie & David

Who We Are

It was an early June evening when we met at a neighborhood Australian bistro. We initially met online, and both of us were recently out of serious relationships just yearning for good company. There was an unexpected spark that night, one that would quickly ignite into a feverish love. Neither of us knew that fast forward years, we would experience what we did; finding a puppy on a Black Friday, moved in together after a year of dating, get engaged in wine country, purchased a country home, endured a global pandemic, get married at our country home in the middle of a global pandemic, and now finally embarking on our lifelong desire of fatherhood together.

In our spare time, some favorite date night activities include dinner and a movie, live music, bike rides in the park, outdoor activities like hiking or kayaking, musical theatre/comedy shows, an opera/symphony, game nights, and lots of deep conversations about our desire to devote our lives to raising a child. We really love to immerse ourselves in culture, be it the arts, food, music, philanthropy; and fully intend to extend that love to your child. We also enjoy adventure and travelling the globe. While a beach holiday is a favorite go-to for relaxation, we most enjoy trips learning about local culture, food and cuisine, traditions, etc. We hope to raise your child by exposing them to environments that are truly diverse and culturally fulfilling, much like our families provided for us.

On the other hand, we also fully intend to ensure they learn true life skills like how to master Monopoly, jigsaw puzzles, Rummikub and Yahtzee (some of our favorite games). Richie also really enjoys cooking, and when we say cooking, it’s not for a party of 2. Since he grew up in a big family, all of his grandmother and mother’s recipes are catered to families of 10+, so there’s always plenty of leftovers. He has also begun incorporating David’s culture as well, marrying each identity into a new dish. Have you ever tried Soy Ginger Matzo Ball Soup?

Adoption Diary

December 2, 2021

Hoping everyone had a warm and loving Thanksgiving weekend. We hosted David’s family at the Hamptons house along with our neighbors, Darren & Daniel and Seana & Jason. Richie cooked up an amazing meal—Turkey of course, a roast duck, garlic roasted mashed potatoes, baked macaroni and cheese, a farro and butternut squash salad, honey garlic carrots, potato salad, green bean salad, roasted potatoes and corn casserole. David’s family stayed for the weekend and we also put up our 12 foot Christmas tree. It’s always been a tradition of Richie’s family to put out the tree the day after Thanksgiving and we intend to keep that tradition alive and well. You can see here in the photo, our sweet & loyal Rico relaxing in front of it. Wishing everyone a safe, warm and festive Holiday season!

Love,

Richie & David

Wow! Where to begin? As we pen this first post, we are reflecting upon our adoption journey thus far. Finalizing our home study recently was so far the most exciting milestone. From it, we’ve learned so much about the adoption process, ourselves individually and as a family that we’ll become when we find a birth mother who chooses us to care, love and support their baby. We’ve longed all our lives for this moment, to become fathers and cannot wait until the day we can call ourselves that. Join us and catch a glimpse into what we are up to in our daily lives and how you can hopefully see how your child will be loved and cared for by us. The photo shown is of a recent beautiful sunset on the beach by our country home just outside of New York City. We come here often to wind down from a hard day’s work, and hope to share this peaceful moment with your child one day.

Love,
Richie & David
