"Families don't have to match. You don't have to look like someone to love them"

Hi! We are Brandy, Phil, and Ryan (and Nico, our dog!) from Long Island, New York. We have dreamed of growing our family through adoption for so many years, and we are so excited to be on this journey!

We can only imagine what you are experiencing while you make the decision that is best for you and your baby. We genuinely admire your courage and your strength for the steps that you have already taken in this process, and we have so much respect for you in all of the decisions you have ahead.

It is our promise to you that, should you choose us, your child will grow up in a home full of love, adventure, support, fun, encouragement, and with an amazing big brother!

Who We Are

We first met in 2014 when Phil tried to impress Brandy by getting her some ice cream - little did Phil know that the double chocolate pint he chose was actually Brandy's LEAST favorite flavor. Brandy appreciated the gesture, but no phone numbers were exchanged. About 6 months later, Brandy and Phil ran into each other again, and this time, there was an invitation for a date - which quickly turned into a second, and then a third.

We became engaged in 2017, and had an amazing time at our wedding in 2018. We bought our first home in 2017, and then found our forever home in 2021. Our biological son, Ryan, was born in April of 2020, and he has given our lives a whole new meaning.

As a couple, we enjoy doing work on our house - designing and building furniture and decorations. We also spend a lot of time doing things outdoors, whether its hiking, going to the beach, kayaking, bike riding, or playing with our dog. Now that we are parents, a lot of our time is spent on kid-friendly activities, but we continue to stay as active as possible. Ryan loves being outside, too, and doesn't let bad weather stop him!

Kindness, respect, and a good work ethic are some values that are very important to us. We treasure our families, and feel so lucky to have the support we do from them. It is our goal to raise our children to be good people with their own set of values and morals.

Adoption Diary

Cooking with Daddy!

Phil is the main cook in the house - he enjoys it, and is REALLY good at it! He loves using the BBQ, but also gets creative on the stove and makes many of his own recipes. He recently branched out into dessert, and made some amazing chocolate truffles, yum! Phil learned this skill from his dad, and he is now inviting Ryan into the kitchen with him as a way to bond, and also teach Ryan some of his passion.

Monster Trucks!

Tonight we all went to see a Monster Trucks show as part of Ryan’s Christmas present! Phil used to go to these shows when he was a kid, and it was really special for him to now be going with his son! We can’t wait to go again as a family of 4!
