♥ Dear Expectant Parent ♥
Thanks for stopping by to read a little bit about Tim and me.
We’re excited to be on this journey to build our family through adoption. We know that we’re on this path for a reason, and when the time is right we will make a connection with a truly very special person. A guardian angel? An answer to our prayers? Most certainly!
Perhaps you’re reading this letter and struggling with this huge decision before you. Maybe you’re scared; maybe you’re confident because you have the support of family and friends. Or maybe you haven't told anyone about your plans. We can’t even being to imagine how big this decision is, but you should be very proud of making a plan for adoption. It is an incredibly loving and unselfish decision to give a couple the gift of family. Without you, our dream of becoming parents would never happen. So Tim and i think that anyone who considers making a plan for adoption is a pretty amazing person!
So how did we come to adoption? Having a family was / is very important to Tim and me, in fact, we took it for granted that we would automatically have children. But after struggling with infertility and suffering through miscarriages, we realized we wanted to be parents more than anything. For us, the answer was very clear. We'd build our family in a very special way - through adoption! All the struggles and heartache melted away with this decision. It’s actually very exciting for us, and we’re thrilled at the thought of getting to know the amazing woman who will choose us to parent her baby.
We hope too that by making a plan for adoption with us, that you will have peace in your heart so that you can go on to achieve wonderful things too. We would be thrilled to explore an open adoption, if you wished. But if you preferred to keep things closed, we would honor your wishes. We understand that it can’t be an easy decision. But we do believe that you’ll know in your heart when you’ve found the right adoptive parents for your little one
So what kind of parents would we be? Well we promise to honor your gift every single day. We promise to spend our lives being the very best parents we can be – loving – encouraging - instilling confidence– creating a home full of laughter and giving all the opportunities that we possibly can, so that your little one has an amazingly bright and happy future.
Of course we’ll show our little one the world visiting relatives all over the globe and sharing where I grew up in England. We know we’ll visit the Washington DC sights, museums and monuments with our little one – sharing history and the arts. We’ll explore the nature reserve and river front marina that we can walk to from our home – we know it will provide countless hours of serene walks and exploration of nature, pointing overhead to the eagles, great blue herons and ospreys that share our neighborhood. But most of all we know that we have this special gift of shaping a young lady or young man, instilling in them self-confidence, and compassion for others. We’d encourage them in their own pursuits; helping to bring out their own, unique personality. We would cheer them on in their favorite sports or hobbies, encouraging them to enjoy this life and make the world a better place with kindness to others, giving them unconditional support and love. Given how important education is to both Tim and me, we knew we’d beam with pride when they stepped across the stage, first at their high school graduation then at their college graduation. Perhaps they’d go on and get their masters and doctorate degree too! The sky’s the limit for our hopes for our children.
We know that with children our home will be filled with even more love and more laughter! We can’t wait!
So we’re hoping that as you read this you might be our guardian angel – our magical connection.

Well, the first thing people notice about me is my "sneak attack" British accent. I grew up in on the south coast of England and moved to the United States with my mom and dad and brother when i was a teenager. So i've been in the US for quite some time, but i still pronouce a few things in a very British manner (hence the "sneak attack" accent that pops out with certain words or phrases!).
Growing up, i had a very fun childhood full of travels around Europe exploring castles and historic homes and gardens with my older brother, inspiring a love of travel and history that’s become a lifelong passion. We would also come visit my grandparents, here in America, over the summers. My parents taught me the importance of not only using words, but also actions to show just how much you love and cherish your family and friends. They were always
hugging and cuddling my brother and me – which some people say doesn’t sound like the typical reserved stereotype of English people – but my Dad was always joking, outgoing and fun and my Mom – as a Hispanic mother – was all about creating a loving, warm home!
I’ve always been outgoing and very chatty – and so when we moved to America i didn’t have trouble making friends because *everyone* wanted to talk to me to hear my accent. In fact, I met my best friend, Hope, soon after I moved here after she asked me to say “Peachy”! Hope was my maid of honour at Tim and my wedding - wow it will be our 10th anniversary this year - we're still in the honeymoon phase, i can't believe my luck in meeting Tim, i feel very blessed!
I also love, love, love animals…. I can’t resist petting a dog or even a little piglet! I was so happy that Tim also adores animals and so as soon as we bought our home we adopted two kittens, Scooby and Heidi (read more about them on our Home & Pets page)! They make us laugh every day with their antics!!
Some might describe me as a little kooky (in a good way). I like to have fun, whether that is climbing into the cockpit of the flight simulator at a museum, jumping in an trying the hurricane simulator at a science museum, or just being goofy. Life’s too short to not look at the sunny side of life. I try to stay positive and upbeat, even when life gives you lemons. I think this attitude has helped me deal with the infertility and miscarriages. I stay hopeful that there’s a reason Tim and I went through these struggles. That the experience will make us even better and thoughtful parents and offer a loving, secure
home to a little one who might not have had all the opportunities that Tim and I can provide.
I love to bake and we celebrate the holidays with friends and their little ones with an annual holiday cookie makin’, bakin’ and decoratin’ party that we host at our house. The smell of freshly baked cookies fills the air, sprinkles, cookie decorations, powdered sugar and cookie icing is absolutely everywhere but it is so much fun! I can’t wait to introduce our little one to this annual tradition! I enjoy doing crafts (not quite as well as Martha Stewart) and painting (acrylics on canvas) and love to grow zinnias and beautiful flowers in the garden (although we can’t really display them inside because one of our cats, Scooby, likes to eat the flowers. Then he likes to throw up the flowers!
Naughty cat, but good thing he’s so cute!) I love celebrating the holidays and I love the Autumn and the changing colour of the leaves, mostly because it means Christmas is right around the corner with all the cheer and good will that brings out in everyone.
Well I hope that this helps give a little snapshot into who I am! Do please get in touch!

I grew up in a small town in Northwest NJ. Our neighborhood was filled with kids, so there was always something do outside with friends. We’d play games (kickball, tag, wiffleball, football, running bases,manhunt…you name it, we played it!) or hike in the woods near my home. I’d be hiking with friends, our family’s dogs, or both! I still enjoy a good hike in the woods today, it’s peaceful and I just enjoy being outside in Nature. During the winters I’d join the neighborhood kids, sledding down one of the many large hills near my home. It was a happy time.
When I was about 12 I began a serious passion for BMX. I grew up riding just about everyday, competing in contests, traveling to prime riding spots, and making a lot of friends along the way. Many of whom I am still close with today. In the winters I took up snowboarding to keep that adrenaline going when I couldn’t ride my bike.
When I was very young my parents divorced, with my mother remarrying when I was 5. I got along great with my stepfather who is a patient and kind person. I grew up in a full house with my mother, stepfather, brother, sister, and stepsister and we always had at least two dogs and two cats. My whole family loved the pets and I still do today.
Almost every weekend, I would visit my father with my brother and sister and sometimes friends. We’d go for bike rides, together we’d mow the baseball field diamond in a big field at the back of dad’s property and then we’d all play baseball; we’d explore and hike in the woods looking for caves and wildlife. Dad would drive me and friends to BMX contests and cheer us on. He was always very supportive of my hobbies and interests.
As I’ve gotten older my passion for bicycling continues, but I’ve mellowed a bit and just mountain bike now. Melissa jokes that I’ve graduated from 2 to 4 wheels: I’ve become very interested in cars and even worked my way to become a high-performance driving instructor. That’s me in my track car at Watkins Glen International Speedway.
I also enjoy listening to music, watching movies, gardening, hiking, reading, electronics, playing on a softball team, and computers.
As for how I see myself? I think that I am a fairly mellow, easy-to get-along-with, fair, friendly person. I treat others with respect, as I would want the same in return. I have a fairly sarcastic sense of humor, enjoy making people laugh, and having a good laugh myself! I am deeply in love with Melissa and I feel we really compliment each others personalities. I get along wonderfully with my in-laws, which is definitely an added bonus.
I know I am not perfect but I try to lead a good life. Starting the adoption process has definitely helped me be more outgoing. Meeting people in similar situations, and introducing myself to complete strangers with “Hi, we’re adopting…”
I am very much looking forward to being a parent and feel Melissa and I have a lot to offer. I am realistic, and know we are ready to tackle all the ups and downs of being a parent (definitely more ups!).
