THE COOLEST Long Island Couple of Educators Hoping to Grow Family With Love and Respect!
Hey there! We are Laura and Rick. We are a loving couple based on Long Island near New York City who hope to grow our beautiful family through adoption. We are family court certified, home-study approved, and will cover expenses as needed. We have been married for four years and together for over seven. We are both educators who serve underprivileged populations in Queens, NY; Laura is a speech-language pathologist in a middle school and Rick is a STEM teacher in an elementary school.
We live with our beautiful and relaxed rescue dog Alice who Laura has had for 12 years. We both have spent our entire professional careers in service of creating the best lives for the children of New York City, and we’d be honored to be given the opportunity to share the immense amount of love we have to give by welcoming a child into our home.
Our love is one that is based on humor, being absolute best friends, and mutual respect. Our beautiful journey began when we met on Match.com in early 2016. Sparks flew through corny jokes, swapping teacher stories, and promises of ice cream dates. After making initial plans to meet up through text message, however, both Laura and Rick never received each other’s subsequent messages. But Laura would not give up on the connection we made! She reached out weeks later to ask if Rick “enticed girls with ice cream and then disappears.” Having not gotten her messages, we cleared up that T-Mobile was to blame and we have never been apart ever since. We have lived in Queens and now live on Long Island.
We have a beautiful two-story house with a lovely yard and a garden Rick loves to cultivate each year. Family, friends, education, empathy, and raising children are the most important parts of life for us. We hope to connect about making this dream a reality!
