We have built our family on love, security and lots of silliness.
We are the Elliott-Negri family, Christine, Luke, Samaya (5), Eli (3) & Canarsie the cat (10). Thanks so much for the opportunity to share a bit about our family. We wish you well as you decide what feels right for you and your child. Each member of our family is excited to be on the adoption journey, and we welcome the chance to build a relationship with you at whatever level you feel comfortable.
We are trying to raise children who retain the best parts of childhood as they grow: wonder, curiosity, silliness, and easy laughter. Daily, we attempt to cultivate empathy in our children, for each other and us, but also for the new friends they make and the strangers they meet. We want our children to be self-confident and grounded, to trust themselves. We hope that as they grow into adulthood, they try to do good in the world they encounter.
We embrace the chance to learn about you, your hopes and dreams for your child, to share photos and updates, and to visit with you. We will meet you at your comfort level when it comes to how open you want to be. We promise that your child will know where they come from and we will speak about you with love and respect. We wish you peace and strength, now and always!
