Building Our Family Through Adoption

Our Letter To You

We are adopting because we’ve always wanted to raise a family together. Infertility has prevented us from conceiving on our own, but it hasn’t changed the way we’ll love the child that comes into our home.

We can’t imagine the difficulty of the decisions you are making. But if we do take this adoption journey together, our commitment to you is that we’ll have a relationship of respect, empathy, and love. And above all, we commit to providing your child a secure future filled with laughter, love, and joy.

We can’t wait to be parents, and we can’t wait to meet you!

Our Parenting Style

We want to raise a child that will be happy, confident, and comfortable with him/herself. We intend to share equally in playing, teaching, and disciplining our child. We don’t believe in corporal punishment: as the child gets older, we will explain more about why something is wrong or dangerous when we tell them not to do it. Above all, we will love our child unconditionally.

Our Story

Our Story

We own a four-story rowhouse/brownstone in Jersey City, NJ (just outside of Manhattan). We have plenty of space for our adopted little one to play, a grassy backyard and a beautiful deck where we grow fruits and vegetables. Jersey City is a vibrant and multicultural place. Recently it was named the most diverse city in America! Our neighborhood is great. It’s walkable, filled with wonderful and supportive neighbors–many of whom have lived here all their lives. There is an elementary school, a middle school, and a high school all within a 5 minute walk from our front door. There are lots of parks and stores/restaurants nearby.

We met at our middle school bus stop in 1996, started dating in high school, and have been going strong ever since. We are so excited to expand our family through adoption.

We’ve built a life together that is comfortable but that always keeps us on our toes. We spend a lot of our time with friends and family, hiking, experiencing the outdoors, and learning new things. We also love cozying up by the TV or with a good book. And we have so much fun during karaoke or board game/trivia nights!

We also really love to travel—from weekend drives to adventures abroad. We love it because we value the opportunity to learn about and experience new cultures and deepen our connection with the world around us. We hope to bring this same experience to our growing family.
