Chris and John
Dear Birth Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. First, we would like you to know that we very much admire your courage and strength as you navigate through this tough time. We are eager to get to know you so that we can give you peace of mind knowing that your child will be the center of our world. We were blessed 3 years ago when we adopted our first child, and it was the best thing to ever happen us.
We are ready to continue the responsibilities and joys of parenting, and we cannot wait for our exciting journey to continue. We have a very strong, loving marriage, and we want so very much to grow our family. Becoming parents has been a dream come true and we would like nothing more than for our son to have a sibling.
We are able to provide a great life for your child where love and happiness will be all around him or her. Your child will receive the best schooling and will travel the world with us!
We look forward to hearing from you, and we will go through this process together.

Our Adoption Story

When we got married back in 2013, we didn't think having a family was going to be an option. Our closest friends kept telling us what great parents we would be, and with one of them being adopted herself, the lightbulb went off. "Why not adopt?" we thought to ourselves, and the more we thought about it, the more excited we became! In 2018, we started the process of becoming approved for adoption, and the search began! In 2019, we met our son's birth parents and adopted this little bundle of joy on St. Patrick's Day. Our lives forever changed because now everything became about caring for and loving him. Now 3 years later, we have more love to give. It would be nothing short of amazing to give him a brother or sister.

About Noah

Our son is a healthy, happy 3-year-old little guy. He keeps us active, whether it's a trip to the park or story time at the library. He is thriving and getting smarter each day. Some of the things he says are truly surprising! Noah and our pup are quickly becoming best buds, as our goldendoodle is a great family pet. Chris is now retired and is a stay-at-home dad. Our days will continue to be full with visits with family, trips to the zoo or museum or even staying at home to be outside for bike rides or building a snowman. Education started with Noah already at age 3. He can now spell his name, copy us saying the alphabet and talk in full sentences. We will continue to take our children to the library, as we believe reading books is an important part of the nighttime routine. We hope our children excel in school and attend college, and we will do what we can to help achieve that goal.

About Us

We are a loving couple together for 13 years and happily married for nearly 8 years. We live on a cul-de-sac surrounded by children in the suburbs of New York.
We both have stable jobs with great benefits. Chris recently retired after working 20 years with the Fire Department. He has a pension and benefits. John is a bank teller with 12 years of management experience working for a Fortune 500 company. Together, we love to travel, spend time in the great outdoors and have frequent get-togethers with our family.

Meet Chris

I am the eldest of 3 children with a younger brother and sister. My brother and sister each have 4 children. I grew up in a traditional household with family dinner at 6pm and going to church on Sundays. My grandmother made gravy (sauce) and the extended family, including cousins, aunts and uncles, all got together at Nan's. My family is very supportive of our decision to adopt and will help us in any way possible.

Meet John

I am the middle child of 3 children with an older brother and younger sister. My brother has 2 children and my sister has 3 children. I have had a close relationship with my parents and had dinner as a family every night. We talked about our day, politics and current events. We went to church every Sunday and spent the holidays together as a family. Religion, history, travel, arts and culture are very important to me. My family is also very supportive of our decision and will also help us any way they can!

Our Home

We live in a colonial home built in 2014 near the end of a cul-de-sac. We bought our home in January 2015 and partly because it was brand new, it really is our dream home. We take great pride in the way the home looks. It is designed with modern, elegant furniture and paintings but still inviting and cozy. We just finished adding a couple of finished rooms in the basement including a large area for kids to play! Our neighborhood is on the older side and quite diverse with many parks nearby plus a fantastic library, which we frequent!

Hobbies and Interests

Growing up, we were both into Boy Scouts where we learned things like skiing, canoeing, camping and so much more. We hope to get our children into scouts one day - maybe one day, they will become an Eagle Scout like Chris! As we got older, we both very much enjoy reading and traveling as much as possible. We hope to travel as a family once the pandemic comes to an end.

Meet the Family

Our son has many children to play with, as we have a large extended family that includes 13 nieces & nephews from 9 months to 25 years old! Whether it's a monster truck race, trips to the water park or a day at the aquarium, we truly love being around children. We always get together for the holidays with everyone invited. At least once a year, we travel with some of our closest relatives. We have been to places like Greece & Italy as well as many trips right here in the US like the Grand Canyon & Hoover Dam, or down to the Caribbean to relax. We are planning a trip to some National Parks this year. We have a close circle of friends that have many children as well. We host and are invited to birthdays, bbq's and other family events. We try to get together whenever possible, catch up and let the kids run around and play in the back yard.
