We both grew up in supportive, loving, and stable families, and we will offer the same enduring and sustained love to your child. We have been together since 2013 and from the beginning, we shared many of the same hopes, values, and dreams. Soon after we got married in 2015, we purchased and renovated a spacious Victorian home to raise a family. We enjoy many of the same hobbies together, which are hiking with our dog Lily, traveling, camping, and spending time with friends and family. We are both loving, fun, friendly, energetic, caring, ambitious, and creative.
We love to travel the world and explore different cultures. This summer we went to Thailand and will be traveling to Sicily and Southern Italy to visit Brian's grandmother's birth town. We also have visited Venice, Rome, Paris and Taiwan where Wei's family lives.
We spend a lot of time with our friends and family from New Jersey, Virginia, and Kentucky.
We cannot wait to show the world to a child and provide an opportunity to share different cultures and languages!! We travel around the United States and Internationally to visit friends and family. We look forward to fun trips to Disney and day trips to museums, zoos, and sporting events. We also travel to Taiwan to visit Wei's family and to our friends who live in Thailand, France, and Italy. Our jobs allow us to travel during the summer, which means we can spend more time with our child. We are grateful to have family and friends nearby, who have small children, so we will have many people who love our family ready to join us.
A child growing up in our home and family will know evenings filled with bedtime stories; Sunday mornings making blueberry pancakes together, family game and movie nights, afternoon trips to the pak, and joyous celebrations of birthday and special events. Winter days will be spent building snowmen, making hot chocolate, and enjoying holidays surrounded by family; there will always be lots of hugs and kisses! We want you to know we are flexible and ae open to all types of adoptions. Please know that if you choose to place your child in our home, they will be given a life with a family that will love them unconditionally, provide them with the best education, foster their talents and ambitions, teach them how to win and lose, and most of all, treasure them endlessly.
Our home is located 30 minutes from NYC by train or car. We enjoy all the culture that the city has to offer including museums, concerts, broadway plays, and most importantly our friends. We enjoy having the best of both worlds; the quiet house next to the bay and the city life not so far away.
Our house has a large backyard, sits on two plots of land, and is only a couple of blocks from the bay, parks, baseball fields, and our local schools. In the summers we have family and friends over for barbecues. We watch the sailboats in the bay, enjoy the nearby beach, watch the 4th of July fireworks on the bay, and sit around the backyard fire pit. Our dog Lily loves to play, catch frisbees, do tricks, and is great with our small nephews and friends' kids.
