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.

Paul and Gretchen

Paul and Gretchen

Our Story:

Remarkably, Gretchen and Paul grew up only a couple hours from each other, visited the same historical sites and ball parks with our families as kids, went to colleges on opposite shores of Lake Erie, and when we each moved to Boston, we worked only a couple blocks away from one another.  Yet we didn’t meet until close friends introduced us.  We both share a love of history, and during our first date we went canoeing under the Old North Bridge, near where the Revolutionary War started.  Paul later proposed to Gretchen on that same bridge, and we've been happily married for six years.

Two years ago, we were blessed when a courageous birth mother chose us to parent her child, and she and our son, Tommy, have brought even more laughs, light, and love into our lives than we could have ever imagined.  We have learned something new every day about ourselves as people and as parents, and especially our own expanding capacity to love.  We cannot wait to welcome a new child to our family.

What We Love About Each Other:

Paul says that Gretchen is a loving, warm, and caring person with a big heart, and an infectious laugh.  Gretchen says that Paul is amazingly kind, patient, creative, and incredibly funny.  We love to stay active, hiking, biking, cooking dinner together, playing on the beach, and playing in our yard as a family.  We enjoy celebrating holidays both big  (like Christmas and Easter) and small (like Valentine’s Day – which is also our anniversary!), and spending time together on all the normal days in between, whether on walks to the park or picnics on our back deck.

What We Look Forward to Sharing:

Gretchen plays the piano beautifully, and looks forward to sharing her love of music, baking, and baseball (she’s a huge Yankees fan).  Paul grew up playing many sports and still plays hockey weekly.  He looks forward not only to taking our children to cheer on the home teams at live sports events (especially the Red Sox), but also coaching our children’s teams as they grow.  We both also grew up with strong emphases on education. Paul, who earned his doctorate in Chemistry, is a scientist at a large biotech company.  Gretchen, who is a lawyer currently, holds an administrative leadership position at an Ivy League university. Together we both look forward to sharing with our children our love of learning, and curiosity about people and places across the country and around the world. Most of all, we love to spend our time with our families and friends, like Tommy’s Babcia and Dziadzia (that’s Polish for Grandma and Grandpa) who live nearby, and his uncles, aunts, and cousins.

Our Home and Neighborhood:

We live in a lovely 3 bedroom, two and one-half bath home in a wonderful suburb with an amazing school system.  During the nice weather, our yard and long driveway are bustling with pick-up games of basketball, hockey, and kids riding bikes and selling lemonade.  We love our home, and cannot wait to welcome a new child into our family, our lives, and our hearts.

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.

Rich and Meghan

Rich and Meghan

About us:

Adoption story:

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.

Erik says that Sunita is the sweetest, most compassionate person I know.  She is both smart and beautiful. She has a great sense of humor and loves to be creative.  She is also adventurous and athletic (she regularly beats me in golf and tennis).

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.

We live in a beautiful intimate four bedroom colonial house with a spacious backyard on a private street. Our home is a few minutes away from several playgrounds and a family oriented bike path that we really like. The schools are excellent academically and for sports and a few minutes from our home.

Tad and Natalie

Tad and Natalie

About us:

We met through mutual friends who introduced us at a dinner party. Our first date, which began as a simple dinner, turned into about 12 hours of conversation — we both realized that we had found something pretty special and unlike any relationship we’d previously experienced. Natalie was attracted to the feeling that being with Tad almost immediately felt like being at home. Tad was attracted to Natalie, as she was down to earth, funny, intelligent, and he found her very beautiful. We continue to both share interests in music, art, film, and travel.

Tad is a Web Production and Social Media Specialist and he loves his work.  He enjoys working with people throughout the company by helping different departments keep their information maintained and updated. He finds it rewarding sharing his talents for the purpose of helping others and the world

Natalie is a middle school history teacher. Natalie loves her work—she finds working with students incredibly fulfilling. She feels that teaching is a demanding profession but brings many rewards: team work with other inspiring and hard-working educators; witnessing amazing growth in students; getting the opportunity to be creative; and finding herself laughing every single day.

Qualities we see in each other:

Tad says about Natalie:What I love about Natalie is she has a deep appreciation for people and children. She expresses motherhood in many ways and I know she’ll be a loving mom. I also love her smile, her sense of humor, and her generosity.

Natalie says about Tad:  Tad is incredibly patient, loving, and gentle. I greatly admire his courage in standing up for others and speaking his mind. I love his creativity, energy, and joy.  I know he will be a caring, consistent, and truly wonderful dad.

Our hobbies:

Tad loves to cook and grill, go running, be outdoors, go to the beach, visit art museums, watch films, go to baseball games, and watch a good mystery on TV. He  also enjoys revisiting his music collection when he can, or exploring his paints and putting them on canvas.

Natalie enjoys spending time with her friends' kids— babysitting, baking, story time, whatever they want to do! She also likes indulging her  geeky history teacher side by visiting museums and historic sites, and strumming out a few tunes on the guitar.

Holiday gatherings:

Our holiday gatherings are fun—we especially love celebrating Christmas with our families. Tad’s family is all over the US and Natalie’s family is in England — no matter what, when we gather within the different arms of the family there is a lot of chatter, much laughter, and many kids running around, and plenty of pets join in the fun, too.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a duplex in a beautiful suburban neighborhood.   Our home has three bedrooms. The first floor is light and spacious with an open floor plan. Our furnishings are simple and modern, but with plenty of character. The bedrooms provide plenty of space and privacy. We have a pretty yard and our community is diverse and family-oriented.  There are several parks nearby along with a beautiful river walk.

Our neighborhood is part of a quiet cul-de sac with lots of young children in it.  There are several parks in the area and a boys and girls club as well.  We are lucky to come from wonderful, supportive families.  We are both very close with are siblings and see them as often as possible.  We are incredibly close with our parents and enjoy getting together for all different occasions.  Everyone is very excited for us to adopt a baby!!

Chris and Amy

About us:

We grew up in the same city and had mutual friends but didn’t officially meet until after high school. We were friends for a few months before Chris asked Amy to go to the movies. While we were just friends we would casually go out for breakfast/lunch 1-2 weeks. Going out for breakfast is still one of our favorite things to do

Chris is on the shyer side and Amy is more outgoing which makes for a great match. We have been happily married for 7 years this coming August. Chris works as a Butcher and Amy is a Nurse.

What we do for fun:

Amy enjoys photography, loves to drive around looking at foliage and enjoying autumn, learning about history and New England holds the perfect setting.  Chris likes cooking and is an avid Boston sports fan, with the Boston Bruins being his favorite.

We have been many places throughout the country and every year visit Maine and Cape Cod several times. We are really looking forward to sharing our love of traveling and exploring new places with our  child.  We  like to enjoy life,  playing with our dogs, listening to music (singing in the car), being spontaneous, fun and learning as we go along.

Qualities we see in each other:

What Amy says about Chris- “Chris is a wonderful husband and I’m thankful every day to have married such a kind, gentle soul. Chris is extremely hard working and is always willing to go the extra mile. Chris is going to be an incredible Dad just by the way he treats others. My sister has Down’s syndrome and he is so patient and loving toward her. It is one of the reasons I fell in love with him.”

What Chris says about Amy-  “Amy is my loving wife of almost 7 years and we have been together for 13 . I couldn’t imagine my life without her in it. She is my rock. She is very kind, thoughtful, friendly, fun and an extremely positive, optimistic woman. She is a funny lady and loves to make people laugh. She is a hardworking nurse who loves her job taking care of the veterans.”

We have a large family who get together regularly during holidays, parties or just friendly get togethers.  Amy has many first cousins who Amy and Chris are both very close with. Whether its going out to eat, playing games, weekends away, going golfing, bbq’s or just hanging out at our Nana’s house, we always have a great time!

We are very close with our parents and siblings. We live on the 2nd floor of Amy’s parent’s house. Amy has one sister and one brother. Chris’s parents live only a 5 minute car ride down the street. Chris has one sister.

We also have a large group of friends that are more like family. We are “Auntie & Uncle” to many of their children. Our family and friends mean so much to us and have been more than supportive during our adoption journey and cannot wait to welcome our child into their lives.

Holidays and Birthdays:

Holidays and Birthdays are a big deal to us and  are spent surrounded by family and friends. Thanksgiving is an eventful one and Amy’s favorite holiday. Thanksgiving at Amy’s parents starts at 11am and usually ends around 8pm. It’s filled with many courses, turkey presentation, pictures, movie time, card games and “2nd thanksgiving” which all the food is re- presented. Christmas Eve is big with Chris’s family and Chris’s parents have the “Feast of the 7 fishes” .

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!

Doug says: Kate is an unbelievable mom!  She is the most caring, compassionate, & fun loving person I have ever met.  She is so great with Claire and has an endless amount of patience.  Kate lives life to the fullest, and will teach our children how to also.  She loves to laugh and play as well as work hard.  These are all traits I know she will pass down to our children.  Kate was truly born to be a great Mom!

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.

Charlie and Julie

Charlie and Julie

About us:

We met through mutual friends who worked for years to get us together.  They were actually planning our wedding before we went out on our first date. They were excellent match makers and knew we were a perfect match for each other before we did.  Julie works for an investment services company and performs regulatory and compliance work for mutual funds. Charlie works in financial services and manages the finances for two county correctional facilities.

Julie about Charlie –

Charlie and I could not be a better match for each other.  He is an intelligent, genuine,   considerate and will do anything for his family and friends.  He is a big kid at heart and loves to have fun.    Charlie is known in the family as the “fun uncle”.  He purchases the biggest and loudest toys he can find for the kids.  To this day family and friends know his reputation and do not even bat an eye when he shows up at a party with a huge present that makes lots of noise.

Charlie about Julie –

Julie is warm, compassionate, patient, fun-loving and kind-hearted.  I am grateful to have her as my partner in life. She loves spending time with family and friends.  She enjoys coming up with fun activities to do with her niece and nephew.  They especially love when she plans scavenger hunts and creates word puzzles that they must solve in order to find their presents.  Julie will be an excellent mother.

Our hobbies:

Julie enjoys cooking and trying new recipes, baking, travelling, reading, Pilates, exercising, volunteering in the community, spending time with friends and family, attending sporting events and going to the beach.  Charlie enjoys boating, reading, history, travelling, sports, attending sporting events, volunteering in the community and hiking. In addition to these activities we also like to spend time with our child friendly dog Oreo.  We look forward to involving our child in these activities plus introducing them to other adventurous activities.

Extended family and holiday gatherings:

Holidays in our home are quite festive.  We celebrate every holiday with our family and friends.  We celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by watching the parade and enjoying a traditional boiled dinner; Easter with coloring eggs and egg hunts; the Fourth of July by watching the town parade from our front lawn followed by hosting an annual barbeque; Halloween with lawn decorating and attending haunted houses; Thanksgiving with pre-emptive Christmas cookie decorating; and Christmas with prepping the tree and yard for Santa’s arrival.  Charlie is infamous in our neighborhood for his Halloween and Christmas decorations.  There are a total of twenty-three first and second cousins waiting to meet the newest addition to the family.  Julie is the oldest of two and has a nephew and niece.  Charlie is the youngest of five and has ten nieces and nephews.

Special activities we look forward to with our child:

We look forward to doing lots of fun and interesting family activities with our child.  Family is very important to us. We want to teach our child about the importance of family values and have them grow up close to their cousins.  We also look forward to creating fond memories such as vacations to new locations, losing that first tooth, attending sporting and school events, learning to ride a bicycle, visiting museums, celebrating milestone events such as birthdays and graduations, and discovering new talents.  Julie looks forward to teaching our child how to cook, reading stories before bedtime and taking part in the annual family tradition of cookie decorating the day after Thanksgiving.  Charlie’s favorite holiday is Halloween and he looks forward to dressing up, trick-or-treating and decorating the yard.  Neighbors come back each year to admire the yard decorations.

Our home and neighborhood:

Our home is a relaxing multi-family duplex.   We have a fenced in yard and there is plenty of room to play, live and learn. We love to decorate our home for holidays and especially Halloween!! Our neighborhood is very residential, is multigenerational and there are several wonderful families with young children. An exceptional elementary school and fun playground are located directly across the street from our home and other recreational facilities are close in proximity.
