We are Melissa and Jimmy from Long Island, NY. We are so excited about expanding our family through adoption. We have been blessed with two amazing daughters and we can’t wait to complete our family with one more baby! Having a biological child is not what’s important to us…what matters is having a child to love unconditionally and feeling fulfilled as a family.
We are sure that this has been a tough time for you, and want you to feel at peace with your choices and know that we will help you in any way we can. We will travel to any state and are willing to pay any pregnancy related expenses.
We will not pretend to know exactly what you are going through and how difficult this decision must be. With us, your baby will always know of your courage, strength and love. We hope you will look through the rest of our profile to learn more about us, our family, and our beautiful hometown and award winning school district!
Jimmy and I met and quickly became best friends. We were inseparable and had so much fun together. We went jet-skiing, attended hockey games, went to dinner and spent time with each others’ families. About a year and half after meeting we began dating and our foundation as friends has made our relationship immeasurably strong. We have been married for 13 years and have been blessed with two amazing daughters. We want to be able to share our abundance of love and blessings with a new baby.
Melissa is 40 years old and a mom above all things. She has worked hard to go from a special education teacher to an assistant principal, but our girls are always her first priority. I admire Melissa’s strength and determination in all that she does. As a mom, she is patient and kind. Her love for our girls is evident in everything she does with them and for them. She has shared her love of learning with both of our girls and beams with pride when she sees them accomplish something new. She has so much love to give and I cannot wait to see her with a new baby in her arms to love and inspire as she has done for our girls.
Jimmy is 45 years old and the funniest, hardest working man I know. He started his career as an auto-mechanic and has moved up to the role of Operations Supervisor. His friendship and unwavering love has made the last 16 years of my life incredible. He is determined to make our life the best it can be. He does not give up until he has accomplished his goals. Jimmy was awarded a full scholarship to complete his college degree and has held a 4.0 GPA while coaching our daughter’s softball team and being an amazing father and husband. One of my favorite things to do is look out our window and see Jimmy and the girls playing in the front yard or just lying on the lawn looking up at the sky. I cannot wait to hear him sing another baby to sleep and listen to the encouraging conversations he had with our girls when they were infants.
While other couples can only tell you about the kind of parents they hope to be, we can tell you from experience the kind of parents we are. We know what it takes to care for a newborn and these years of raising, teaching and loving our girls have been the most rewarding of our lives. As parents we have dedicated our lives to our daughters and have enjoyed every minute of ball games, choir practice, Zumba classes, and just playing outside. We hope that you will take comfort in knowing that your baby will always know of your love and courage and we look forward to sharing letters and pictures with you.
Our family lives in a four bedroom home on a quiet block with lots of kids. Our house has a huge den full of toys and a big, fenced-in yard with plenty of room to run and play. We live in a close knit community with neighbors we can count on in good times and bad. We are involved in many aspects of our community including sports and our Church. We have playgrounds within walking distance and a community park with a pool. It’s a very safe town and has one of the highest ranking school districts in the state! We are 15 minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast, and 45 minutes from the great culture of New York City. We both grew up in the area and can think of no better place to raise our family. A new addition to our family would bring so much joy to our immediate and extended family as well as our friends and neighbors.
