About Us

Mike works in Human Resources for one of the biggest hospitals in the country. He has a great working relationship with his managers and colleagues and has a great work ethic. Jen was an elementary school teacher for 11 years at a Catholic School and loved every minute of working with her 1st and 4th graders and watching them grown academically and socially. She took a leave from her career as an educator when their son was born and loves being home to watch him grow.When we, we knew we found the one and instantly our lives changed. What we thought would be a quick lunch at a local pub turned into over three hours and we both couldn’t wait for the next date. There was such an easiness being together and it felt like we knew each other forever.
We quickly met each other’s families and they all knew that we would be together forever. Jen’s two sisters began predicting when we would get engaged (which they correctly guessed!) and we each became part of the other’s family right from the beginning.
We got engaged at the beach, which is our favorite spot. We had a beautiful wedding and were so blessed by God to be joined together in love with all of our family and friends.
We truly cherish all of our time together. We knew we wanted to start a family right away, but unfortunately the journey was long and difficult, but we never gave up hope. We enjoyed vacations to St. Lucia, Cape May, Mystic CT, Niagara Falls, and Disney. We spent holidays with our families and started many traditions that we continue to do with our son today. After a few years of fertility treatments, we were finally blessed with our miracle son. He is truly the light of our world. His smile and warmth light up our hearts and he brings so much joy to us, our family, and friends.
The three of us love every second together. We take long walks at the beach, local preserves and parks, or just around the neighborhood. We like to play baseball in the backyard, ride bikes, and roast marshmallows at the fire pit. We like to cuddle up and watch movies, go out to eat, and play board games. We love to swim in Jen’s mom and dad’s pool, visit aquariums, museums, and have brunch or dinners with our family. We love to go strawberry picking, pumpkin picking, see animals at the farm, go apple picking with our family, visit Santa, and bake HUNDREDS of Christmas cookies to give to our family and friends.
Nighttime is such a special time for our family. We eat together every night, say grace before meals, and love to talk about our day. We read our son many books before going to sleep, say our prayers, and sing songs.
We have so much support from our loving parents, brothers and sisters and family members. They are so excited to welcome this new family member into their lives and watch him or her grow into our loving hearts and home.
Our closest friends are like family and have been a part of our lives for so many years, some since we were just a few years old. Their children have become our son’s closest friends and it is so special watching the next generation of buddies grow up together and create memories as we all look on.As soon as our son was born, we knew we wanted him to have siblings. It has always been a dream of ours to have a large family. Unfortunately, our fertility struggles continued but we knew we could not give up on our dreams. And so we began our adoption process in hopes of bringing another baby into our hearts and lives. We would be so blessed to share love, life, laughs, joy, happiness, and everyday moments with our new daughter or son, brother or sister. We cannot wait to share his/her story with him. We can’t wait to tell him or her that “I may never have carried you inside me, but I have carried you in my heart forever. You have been wished for and loved more than you will ever know.”
When we got married, we vowed to welcome children lovingly from God, whether it was through pregnancy or adoption. We know we have so much love to give and so look forward to watching our son be a big brother.
While our hearts are exploding with love in the times we spend together and we cherish every single moment, we know there is a missing piece of our family puzzle. Our family is filled with so much love but we have one more piece to make our family complete. Then our story will not end, but will only continue its next chapter with new stories to tell, more love to share, and more incredible memories to make that will last a lifetime.

Our Home & Community

We live in a beautiful home in the suburbs on Long Island, New York. We recently renovated our home to add more bedroom and playroom space for our son and future children. We have a swing set in our backyard with a large patio table to host lots of barbecues for our family & friends. We love relaxing outside on summer nights, roasting marshmallows at the fireplace. Our house is filled with lots of pictures from all of our wonderful times together and you can find many of our son’s projects from school and home around our house.
We live in a tight-knit community and have wonderful neighbors on a quiet block. We are close to the beach and have many stores, park, libraries, churches, and restaurants around us.
We live within minutes of Jen’s parents and siblings and all of our friends and their children are only a short distance away.
We love all of the community interaction and events from parades on Memorial Day and other holidays, as well as programs for children offered at our local library. We love exploring the local parks in our neighborhood, as well as exploring the parks and preserves in neighboring towns. We live in a great school district and feel blessed to have become part of this town since we bought our house when we got married!

Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption

Becoming parents was the biggest gift we were ever given. Our son truly is the light of our world and not a day goes by that we do not thank God for the incredible gift He gave us. We always want our son to know he is so loved and that we will always be there for him. We want him to know that we are as close as close can be and he can tell us anything. We will always support his hopes and dreams and love to hear his laugh and “I Love You’s,” feel his warm hugs and kisses, and enjoy the cuddles. We want him to be a well rounded child who loves to learn, play sports, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy nature. We also want him to grow up being a respectful, caring, sweet, helpful, and polite little boy who will grow into a great young man.As we are on this journey to add even more love to our family, we want our new son, daughter, or more to feel the same way. We want him or her to know that love makes a family. He or she has grown in our hearts forever and we as a family want him or her to be a part of our family more than that baby will ever know. We want him or her to know the story of where he or she came from and know that he or she has so many people who will love and support him or her throughout his or her life. We want him or her to always go after their dreams and never give up, because we always do the same and that is what led us to him or her, a miracle in waiting to our family!

Closing Thoughts

Love is what makes the world go around. When we got married, we always knew that the journey to parenthood might not be easy, but we would never give up and would always reach for the stars. Family is the most important thing to us. This year has brought a lot of changes for so many people, but we can honestly say that it has brought us so much closer as a family. We have spent so much time together making so many different types of crafts, playing baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, cooking and baking our favorite meals and trying so many new ones, and walking around the neighborhood or local parks, preserves, and the beach. While we missed a lot of our normal routines and seeing all of those that we love, we truly cherished the chance to slow down and just soak up every moment together. We always cherish every moment together, but it was so nice to really get that extra time in between work and activities.We promise that the child or children ad adopt will be given so much love. We will all share a bond forever, because you gave your child the gift of life and we will do everything in our power to give him or her the best life possible. A family is built in love, and that is something we will treasure forever. Our family has alway been and will always be the most important part of our lives. We cannot wait to go from the “terrific three” to the “core four (or more!)” and cannot wait to see where this journey leads us.
