- New York -
We are Anthony & Diogenes. We met 10 years ago online and have been happily married for 5 years. Our relationship grew year after year. We are each others best friend, our connection and love is strong and vibrant, above all, love respect and compassion for one another always, we face life together and tackle on challenges and celebrate our triumphs, with our love in our hearts and minds.
Anthony is the most thoughtful and caring person I have ever met. He is an Assistant Branch Manager for a bank. He loves his job and adores his coworkers. Anthony is easy going and loves to laugh! His family and friends know they can always count on him. He is extremely supportive and would do anything for the people he loves. He is smart and outgoing. Anthony loves to bike ride and stay active. He enjoys watching scary movies and playing video games. Between his completely genuine and selfless actions and watching him with our nieces and nephews, it leave no doubt in my mind that he will be an excellent father.
Dio is determined and a hard worker as well as being loving, caring and encouraging partner. He works as a Billing Manager for a bank. He is the most genuine man I know and puts others needs above his own. When it comes to family, no favor is too big or small. He would go to the ends of the earth to help a family member, and will always make time to be a supportive brother and son. Dio loves to cook and entertain our family for Sunday dinners. He is funny and enjoys hosting and making everyone laugh and feel right at home in our house. Dio has been to many places in the world. He loves to travel and enjoys other cultures. Above all else, he wants nothing more in the world than to be a father and having a family of his own. I fully believe he will be a wonderful role model and dad to our child.
Dear Potential Birth Parents,
One thing we have shared since the beginning of our relationship was our desire to have children. It is our greatest wish to start a family to share in our love and wonderful life we have built together. We are at a place in our lives where we have the resources, the love and support from family and friends, and the eagerness to be parents. We are excited to continue our adoption journey….
Our parenting style encourages empathy and responsiveness between us the parent and the child. We would respond to the Childs needs with sensitivity, practice nurturing touch, ensure the child is safe both emotionally and physically, we would provide loving care and use positive discipline when needed. Our aim is to balance the Childs personal and their family life with us as their parents.
We live in the outskirts of New York City, it’s a suburban area that is quiet and peaceful from the hustle and bustle of New York. We love it here, we have been living here for 7 years and we are blessed to have amazing neighbors who truly care for us. We have a big nature park nearby with a nice river that is relaxing to walk by. Both of our families are close by where we can drive to easily and spend some quality time with the family and our friends. We live in a building that is very secure.
We have 2 dogs which we love so much, they both bring amazing joy to both of us and our families. Our dogs are precious, they are loving, smart and love to be around our family and friends. The leader of our pack is Regina, a 9 year old French Bulldog with a lot of wit, protective of us and our home, Regina is also funny to be around, she does the funniest expressions and is an original comedian of a dog, Rufus on the other hand is the most loving dog on the face of the earth, he loves to be walked and loves to be all snuggled up with you. They don’t bark often, only when it is food time or they want a walk. They are both great with our nieces and nephews and they love to be around their energy.

We appreciate you taking the time to read our story and see the wonderful memories we have created. We have spent the last few years setting the stage to raise our family. We have amazing friends and family that we surround ourselves with daily. Our home is full of love and an empty room waiting to be filled. Above everything, our child is going to be raised in a nurturing environment where this child will be cherished beyond compare.
We can provide a save and stable upbringing filled with support and guidance. We will give this child every opportunity to grow up and be a successful and good person in life. We will always be there and make sure they know that their parents will support them in every decision they make in life. We admire your courage. We are honored to be considered as adoptive parents and would love the opportunity to meet with you.
