Joe and Ali

Joe and Ali

About us:

We met almost 11 years ago while we were out with different groups of friends. We accidently bumped into each other and started talking. Joe still claims to this day that Ali tripped him. A few nights later we made plans to meet again and have been together ever since.

Our relationship grew quickly; we had so much fun spending time together. Whether we were hanging out at Joe’s apartment or out with friends, we were always laughing. In just over 4 years of dating, we were married.  We both feel at ease in each other’s presence and cannot imagine life without the other.  Many people would describe us as having easygoing demeanors, but we are also driven to build a successful and enjoyable life for our family. We feel it is important not to take life too seriously.

Ali is a Real Estate Agent and Joe is Director of Sales for a global technology company. Ali is planning on spending her time at home when the baby arrives. Once the baby is settled Ali will consider working part-time. Luckily, both Ali and Joe have flexible work schedules which allow them to work from home or schedule around family priorities.

What we do for fun:

Ali enjoys reading, spending time with her girlfriends, hiking, and cooking. Joe enjoys exercising, watching football, golfing, fishing and grilling. As a couple, we enjoy cooking, traveling and watching movies together.

Qualities we see in each other:

What Ali says about Joe: Joe is hard working, smart (sometimes even nerdy) and very motivated to succeed. In addition, he is extremely friendly and easy to be around.  Joe is someone you can count on in both good times and bad, with advice, support or humor.

What Joe says about Ali: There is no better way to describe Ali than to say she is beautiful, inside and out. She is extremely kind and fair, always willing to support her friends and family. Joe also admires Ali around patience and comfort around children; she was born to be a mother.

Special activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We are looking forward to spending summers at the cape with our child where they will learn how to swim, row a boat, and fish. Our family has a property on the water with a small beach, perfect for summer fun. We are also looking forward to traveling with them, going to sporting events, and taking our dog Rocky for walks to the park. We have many friends with young children and hope to surround our child with many friends and family.

Extended family and holidays:

Both Joe and Ali are very close with their families. Joe’s sister has two little girls (6 and 4) and Ali’s cousins (11 and 9) are all very excited to have a baby in the family. We are always making plans to meet up and spend time with our sisters and cousins. Ali’s parents live nearby and spend a lot of time over the house. Unfortunately, Joe’s mom passed away several years ago but his Dad is retired and very active in his grandchildren’s lives.

Our holidays are always filled with lots of family and friends. We love hosting holidays this past Thanksgiving we had 20 guests for a sit down dinner. For Christmas we will travel to NY to see Joe’s family and our adorable nieces.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a suburban neighborhood with ample outdoor space to walk the dog and explore. Our home has lots of room for children including a large kitchen opening into an extended family room. The home was designed with a nursery located right next door to the master bedroom.  The backyard is a great place to run around and play. In addition, we have a large in ground pool (which is safely fenced in), which will be great for summer swimming.

Norm and Richelle

Norm and Richelle

About us:

We met at a financial advisory firm where we both worked.  Richelle was doing an internship and Norm was her supervisor.  We kept our relationship a secret for 6 months before we let the word get out.  While this may otherwise seem somewhat scandalous, we were actually the 7th couple to meet and marry from the office…and there have been two more since us!  We dated for over two years before we were engaged and enjoyed a two year engagement before we tied to knot. Norm is self-employed as an accountant/bookkeeper and Richelle is a CPA; Tax Partner at a national firm.

Our son, Liam, is currently in an in-home daycare and we are considering hiring a nanny once we have a second child.  With that said, we do believe that socialization with other children is important so we will look for opportunities to participate in local play groups.  Norm’s schedule is irregular so he is sometimes home during the day.  In addition, Richelle works from home a day or two a week. We do plan to take as much time off as possible when the baby comes so that we can bond and enjoy our new family member.

Our hobbies:

Norm is an avid reader, enjoys golf and is wonderful at home improvements.  Richelle enjoys decorating our new home, spending time with friends, and likes photography and scrapbooking.  We both love outdoor activities include swimming, sailing, power boating, waterskiing, canoeing, fishing, camp fires, great meals, long talks and most importantly, laughter.  We particularly enjoy being out on our sailboat.

Activities we look forward to doing with our child:

Richelle enjoys bedtime stories and cuddles.  She is the piggy-back ride and tackle football player.  Liam and Richelle enjoy baking especially making cakes for special occasions (i.e. we made a pink heart cake for Valentine’s Day).  Norm enjoys playing with the Liam outside (playing catch, hitting a ball, and running around). We plan on continuing all of this and more with our new child.

Our extended family & holidays:

Together we have all sets of parents, sisters and brothers and their spouses along with 5 nieces and nephews.  Liam’s cousins love to play with him and enjoying teaching him whatever they can, whether it is learning patty-cake, playing soccer or coloring Easter eggs.

Although none of them live locally, we make every effort to spend time with them whenever we can with particular attention to Liam spending time with his grandparents.  We try to take advantage of quality time together as we don’t have the luxury of quantity.

We love the holidays and always spend them with our family, whether at our home or away.  Gatherings are generally intimate, casual and relaxing.  During the holiday season, Norm’s family always has a family get-together which brings us all together.

Our adoption story:

We have been telling Liam about his adoption story since birth.  We speak of his birthparents often and with great appreciation particularly on Mother’s/Father’s Day and his birthday.  Liam has always loved to flip through the Profile Book that we had compiled for his adoption and we also found a few nice story books about adoption that we read often.  Now that he is older, we have begun to engage him in writing the annual letter to his birthparents by asking him what he wants to tell them about.  We have begun a scrapbook of all the letters and pictures that we have sent through the years so that as he grows and begins to have questions about his adoption, we can show him all that we shared through the years.  We intend to do the same for our next child.

Home & neighborhood:

We live in a quintessential New England town which many of our friends have described as a scene right out of a Norman Rockwell painting.  The scene of kids playing hockey on a frozen pond in the glistening, falling snow is a sure bet.  There are no stop lights in town and one can expect to encounter wooded roads, rock walls, ponds, horse stables and deer around every corner.

We also have a lake house in New Hampshire which has been in Norm’s family for over 65 years.  Our weekends at the lake are often filled with visits from family and friends as we enjoy sharing our “home away from home” with those close to us.

We feel that an honest and open adoption is the best plan for our child.  We will always remind them of the ultimate sacrifice that you made.  Our baby will be welcomed and loved with open arms by our entire family and large community of friends.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a small town in a beautiful cape style house set back on a private wooded lot.  The back yard is full of beautiful flower gardens as well as potted vegetables and has lots of room to run and explore.  Our neighborhood is very residential including several families with young children.   There is a large pond across the street that is open to fishing, canoeing and kayaking, it is truly beautiful scenery.

Erik and Sunita

Erik and Sunita

About us:

We were introduced through a mutual friend at a Spanish tapas restaurant where we still love to go for good food and memories.  We clicked on our first date, a shopping excursion that extended into dinner and a movie.  After that first date, we began spending more and more time with each other – cooking, playing tennis and going running.  We quickly realized just how much we had in common, how compatible we are and how much we loved being around each other.  We make each other laugh and support each other every day.  We spent several years together before we married and have been married for 8 years.  We look forward to spending the rest of our lives together.

Sunita is a medical research scientist working on treatments for rare diseases.

Erik is a chemical biologist researching therapies for autoimmune diseases.

Sunita enjoys cooking and baking, playing sports (tennis, golf, running), traveling, home projects and crafts.

Erik enjoys backpacking, international travel, sports (basketball, running, tennis) and reading.

We also look forward to everyday activities like snuggling up to read bedtime stories, sharing dinners together, helping with homework and school projects, and experiencing with our child the joy of learning to ride a bike.

Extended family and holidays:

Sunita’s family is in Pennsylvania and Erik’s is in Oregon.  We both have one older brother and two nephews, so four cousins (ages 13, 11, 9 & 7) will be thrilled to meet our child, as will the grandparents – Sunita’s mom and Erik’s parents.

We alternate traveling for the holidays to one of our families’ homes and plan it so the entire family can be there.  Gatherings are fun and festive with a lot of cooking, playing games, watching movies and fun science experiments.

Our adoption story:

We will be open and honest with our child when discussing with her/him about adoption.  We will be careful in providing age-appropriate information to help our child understand their background and gain a sense of self.

Our home and neighborhood:

We just purchased a three level, single-family home  that has a beautiful deck and backyard for playing.  The neighborhood is quiet and family-oriented with parks and playgrounds and a pond close by.  The school district is excellent and schools are within walking distance.

Eric and Kristel

Eric and Kristel

About us:

When Eric was stationed in the military he was introduced to Kristel by a mutual close friend.  We found an instant connection like we were meant to be best friends forever.  After dating for just a short while, we were certain we had found true love and we got married!

Eric and Kristel are very sentimental and continue to always cherish special events like our first cake, first kiss, first trip, first everything with one another.   We have been married for over fifteen years and our love and marriage is very strong. As we celebrate we are also hoping to bring a child into our wonderful family to share in all celebrations.

Eric is a Sales Account Executive and Kristel is Director of Marketing and Compliance.

Eric has the most flexibility in his job, so he expects to stay home full-time for at least the first six months with the baby.  We are making plans to alternate responsibilities beyond that time period but we feel fortunate that one of us is able to stay home with the baby.

Qualities we see in each other:

Eric (written by Kristel):

Eric is someone I can count on when days are rough and whenever I need a quick chuckle.  He has a playful soul and always has a very positive outlook on things. These attributes are what I love most about him, especially his sense of humor. He knows how to make people feel special and gives them the individual attention they deserve. He has a passion for life and lives it to the fullest each day.

Kristel (written by Eric):

There is not a woman in the world more beautiful and fabulous than my wife and best friend.  My love affair with her goes beyond her physical and extends to her tender soul.  I’m always mesmerized by her unconditional love for family, people and all living things.  She expresses her adoring love for me and it’s what makes my days complete.  She naturally tends to my happiness and consults with me with anything she may feel may be in conflict with our individual ideals.  She is a tremendous compromiser, and sometimes to her detriment puts everyone before herself.

Our hobbies:

Eric has a passion for golf and being outdoors.  During the winter time, he loves fresh fallen snow and will seek a nearby summit to carve fresh powder on the mountain side. Kristel loves to research and read numerous topics of interest.  When her nose isn’t buried in an article, it’s often tending plants and smelling flowers in our beautiful organic garden.  Kristel loves to follow the sun and would always prefer to be on the beach on any given day.

Activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We look forward to capturing every precious moment with our child.  From its first laughter, first crawl, first words and everything else that comes with them.  We love being involved in arts and crafts, taking the kids to museums and zoos, and running outside playing tag or hide and seek until their energy is spent.  This is true with our nieces and nephews, and we look forward to doing the same with our child.

Our extended family and holiday gatherings:

We have three energetic nephews and three precious nieces, all ranging in ages between two to ten years old.  They are all social butterflies and love to meet new friends.  The cousins show a tremendous bond with one another and there is no doubt they will do the same with their new cousin. Our family is very close.

Since moving to North East, we haven’t missed a year where Kristel’s brother and sister will get the family together during Christmas.  We spend a total of two weeks traveling around New York, visiting and spoiling the little ones with gifts.  Specifically on Christmas Eve, we help the kids prepare Santa’s plate of cookies, personal notes, and a glass of milk.  We usually stay up until midnight ensuring every child is asleep and we help wrap and stuff gifts around the beautiful twinkling tree.  Christmas morning is a tremendous event as we experience the jubilant joy and appreciation of every child.

Our home and neighborhood:

We own a lovely comfortable house in the suburbs and it sits on about a half-acre lot surrounded by old oak trees and pine, among cozy single family homes on a quiet cul-de-sac street.  The back of our house has a large deck and screened porch overlooking a fenced-in backyard area that has plenty of room for kids to play with toys, and where we enjoy relaxing afternoons in our fenced-in pool and organic garden. We live within walking distance to two Elementary Schools and the Middle School. Living near a city allows us to take advantage of what that has to offer, but plant our roots in the calm and family-oriented communities just outside the city limits.

Our story is quite a unique love story.  We met the first semester of college of 2002, and soon after started dating.  By second semester Doug was activated with the Army and deployed to Iraq for 14 months.  Kate wrote Doug every single day that he was gone.   We picked up right where we left off as soon as Doug returned in April of 2004.   We were married September 17, 2005, which began our fun filled life together.  One year ago, we were blessed with the adoption of our first child Claire.  Claire has been such an unbelievable addition to our family.  We couldn’t be anymore thankful to Claire’s selfless birthparents for our gift.  We can’t wait to give Claire a sibling!  We also have a gentle 9-year-old Chocolate Lab who is great with all our family members (especially the little ones). Kate is a stay at home mom for Claire.  She is going to be a stay at home mom for our children until they are grown and out of the house.  She also is a Realtor, and works on that in her spare time.  Doug is a Lieutenant on a city Fire Dept.  He has a flexible schedule, and will be able to spend tons of time watching our children grow!

Kate says:  Doug is the most fun person I know.  He makes me smile and laugh all the time.  He knows how to enjoy life and make every moment count.  He is the best dad!  Doug is fun, playful, strong, and loving with Claire.  The two of them are best friends!   He is hard working, and takes on any situation with a great and positive attitude.   He is a great family man.

Fun Times:

We love to goof around and have fun.  We spend most of the spring, summer, and fall outdoors.  We like to go out on our boat, bike ride, play ball with Lilly(our dog), spend time with family, go to the beach, paddle board, play, swim in the pool and have BBQ’s.  The winters we like to take trips to warm destinations.  We have a membership with the Disney vacation club and go often.  Kate enjoys spending time with family, shopping, & going out with her friends.  Doug enjoys family time, snow skiing, camping, and water sports.  Since the arrival of Claire we love to play, read stories, and watch her grow and learn new things all day long!

What we can’t wait to do with our children:

We look forward to being there through every milestone, the first steps and first word to graduations and marriage the list goes on and on.  Kate looks forward to everything from fun family vacations to volunteering at their school.  Doug looks forward to teaching them how to ski and surf to driving a car!  We will be there every step of the way through our kids lives to love, support, provide safety and security.  We will show our children that with a little hard work, you can do whatever you set your mind to.  We will support them 100% no matter what the situation.  Most importantly teach them to love & laugh.

Our Home:

We live in a Colonial 3 Bedroom home with a fenced in yard.  We live in a coastal town; our house is a block from the ocean and two blocks from the bay.  We have an in-law apartment in which Kate’s Mom lives; she will always be there for the baby!  We love taking daily walks on the beach with Claire and our dog and playing in the sand all summer long.

Our Adoption Story:

Our adoption story will always be told to our baby from the start.  There will be no surprises along the way.  Our child will always know what a loving selfless sacrifice you made in order to give us the greatest gift of our lives.  You will always be a huge part of their story, and we are willing to be as open with this adoption as you are.

We tend to make a big deal about Holidays – The ‘7 seas’ on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day spent at home leisurely enjoying surprises from Santa.  Egg hunts at Easter, green outfits on St. Patty’s Day and homemade costumes on Halloween.  Birthdays are always a big deal with fun decorations, lots of presents and most importantly - a delicious cake!

Our home and neighborhood:

Our home is a large colonial with a big famer’s porch located on a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood full of kids.  We have 5 bedrooms, one that serves as a toy room.  Our favorite room is the Sunroom, it's sunny and bright and a great place for us to sit and talk.  Our mountain condo serves as a great get-away spot for family bonding.

We share our home with our beloved dog Gordie, an 8 1/2 year old English Bulldog.  His favorite pass times are napping and stretching out in the sun, and he is never more than a few steps away from his family.  He is a great "fur brother".

Our adoption story:

We fully embrace adoption as the path that will lead us to the little life that is destined to join our family.  We plan to be very open with our child about their adoption and sharing the story of the birthparents who loved them so much to bring them into this world, and who trusted us to guide them through it.  We will make sure they know how much they are loved by all of us, before they were born and every day after. We welcome an opportunity to share pictures, stories and even meetings as the baby grows because we are all a very important part of this child's story.  If you proceed with an adoption plan and choose us, we ensure you that we will love this child unconditionally and nurture, protect and enjoy them every day as if they were our very own.

Steven and Kami

Steven and Kami

About us:

In 2007, we met at a local restaurant. We bumped into one another and starting chatting, and ended up exchanging email & numbers that night, and actually talked for a MONTH before deciding to go on a date. We both moved cautiously slow wanting to develop a friendship first. Our first date was July 5th 2007 and we’ve been inseparable since. Meeting one another’s family, watching the way we each interacted and instantly fit right in, and sharing our first holiday season together; that was when we realized we were in love.  Steven is a Regional Sales Manager for an Insurance (Remote position out of home office) and Kami is a 401(k) Client Relationship Manager with a large firm (Remote position out of home office). Due to our flexible work schedules and our working from home, we will always be home here with the baby. Kami will spend months out of work initially, devoting all her time to the baby and eventually return to work (from home) on a flex schedule and our family will be on site helping us .

Qualities we see in each other:

What Kami sees in Steven: Steven is a hard working, loyal, dedicated, loving, and supportive family man. He is generous, reliable, forgiving, and very funny (silly) and so much more!

What Steven sees in Kami: Kami is a smart, fun-loving, witty, loyal, compassionate and giving woman. She is always trying to help a family member or friend in need. Kami is truly devoted to all of the children in our family, always spending fun-filled time with them having a blast.

What we do for fun:

Steven is a big sports fan and enjoys watching sporting events with friends and family and managing Fantasy sports team. Grilling and barbequing are a favorite past time, working around the house on projects and spending time outdoors.

Kami’s passion is interior decorating and design, in fact she decorated our whole house:  She enjoys arts and crafts (especially with kids), getting manicures and pedicures, baking and  do-it-yourself home projects and has an eye for fashion.

Activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We look forward to every day life with our child; going to the park, zoos, family events, and time spent at home. We look forward to traveling in the future with our child, as we love to travel and see new warm places! We look forward to the simple things in life like crafts, games, and sporting events. There will be no shortage of fun and activities!

Extended family and holidays:

We have 9 nieces and nephews and 3 Godchildren that are all so excited to meet our new little one! We love entertaining in our new home. Easter dinner includes a fun Easter egg hunt with our families and many Nieces & Nephews. We usually host many of the spring and Summer Holidays as well, with large cookouts, because we have the outdoor entertaining space but also because we love hosting family.  Christmas each year is celebrated at relative’s homes where all of the cousins play with one another and open their gifts. We have a large dinner with music and laughter.

Our home and neighborhood:

Our house is a custom Colonial home that we built and moved into a few years ago.  We live at the end of a cul-de-sac in a beautiful and safe vast neighborhood, with many children ranging from toddlers through high school aged. We have a large fenced in backyard for privacy and safety. It is a perfect home in a wonderful neighborhood, and we look forward to raising our child here.

Chris and Jen

Chris and Jen

How we met:

We have an old-fashioned love story.  We were high school sweethearts; set up on a blind date by a friend for a dance at Jen's school.  When we married at age 30, it was no surprise that our wedding song was "At Last".  It’s now the song that we sing to our daughter everyday.  We consider ourselves lucky that we took the time to build our life together.  It made our love for each other stronger.

About us:

Chris is a logical thinker; Jen is all passion.  Chris can be the even-tempered Irishman and Jen is the hotheaded Italian.  Together we have figured out how to marry our traits.

Jen says that Chris is foremost a wonderful father to Maren.  He is gentle, caring and loves playing with her.  One of his favorite days of the week is when he gets to take her to play group.  Chris is outgoing, thoughtful and kind.  He is the first person to offer his help when anyone needs something.  He is very handy and loves to watch and play all sports. Chris works for the National Park Service, as a Supervisory U.S. Park Ranger, Law Enforcement.  The opportunity to work for the National Park Service is very special for him.  It allows him to combine his goal of working in law enforcement and helping people, with his love of the outdoors and interest in the American story.

Chris says that Jen is an excellent mother to our daughter.  She is patient, giving, and has a great laugh that is infectious to those around her.  Jen loves spending time with family and friends.  Being from a big Italian family, she enjoys cooking and baking.  She grew up on the ocean and loves anything water or beach related.  Jen likes to take the jogging stroller out on runs with Maren and reading bedtime stories to her at night.  Jen is a pediatric occupational therapist, working with children with special needs.  She works for a local school district, so that her days off are the same as our daughter’s.  Jen plans to take time off from her job when it’s time to be at home with our children.

What we do for fun:

We love playing and spending time with Maren, taking her to new places and experiencing traditions through her eyes!  We love sports, especially our home sports teams. We love to try new foods and travel to different places.  We spend many weekends at our beach home with our families, going kayaking, and hiking the local trails.  We are both avid readers, something we share with daughter.  Our favorite pastime is visiting our family!

Family and Holidays:

We both come from large families and see our families frequently throughout the year.   We have 10 nieces and nephews ranging in age from 12 years to 1 month in age.  Everyone is excited to meet the newest member of the family!  There is always a family party happening, whether it’s a birthday party or a holiday gathering.  In the summer, we get together with our family at the beach home. Christmas is time spent with both sides of our family.  To decorate, we get 2 Christmas trees, one for inside and one for outside the house. But our favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, where we host both sides of the family at our house.  It lets us cook and entertain, something we love to do.

Where we live:

Our home is an expanded ranch, all one floor living, with an open floor plan.  It sits on a large lot, with our backyard extending into a wooded area.  We have plenty of room to run and play.  We like spending time having cookouts in our backyard and entertaining with family and friends.  We love our neighborhood.  There is a mix of families; many with small children.  We live within walking distance to the elementary school and playground.  Our town has one of the best annual parades on St. Patrick’s Day in the state.  It has a large lake, designed specifically for family friendly swimming and a State Park with great hiking trails.

Adoption Story:

We have always felt a strong desire to be parents.  Coming from large families, we have both always wanted a large family of our own.  From early on, we plan to share our child’s story through the use of bedtime stories and discuss adoption openly.  When our child is older with questions of their own, we will be there to fully support them. The ability to adopt a child, to love them, to watch them grow, to teach them; is the greatest gift we could ever receive.
