Thank you for viewing our profile! We are April & Brendan. We feel honored that you’re considering us to parent your child. We met 8 years ago while singing together in an opera and have been together ever since.
We are deeply in love and, for a long time, have been committed to raising Brendan’s two children, Conor and Bridget. Conor is a sophomore in college in Vermont, and Bridget is a senior in high school who is preparing to go to college next year. Now that they are grown, we want to pour our love into a little one of our own.
Brendan works as a software executive, and April works at a museum in Philadelphia. Along with Brendan’s two, grown children, we are eager to expand our loving and adventurous family, and are humbled by your strength and desire to consider an adoption plan for your beautiful child.
April grew up in Lancaster County and attended college locally but studied abroad in Germany (she’s fluent in German!). She became a teacher before building a thriving career as a museum administrator. Brendan grew up in Brooklyn and attended an Ivy League university. He is a devoted father to his two teenage children, an avid reader, and proud founder of a start up software company.
We are active people who travel frequently, and especially enjoy skiing all over the country. Our extended families are a huge part of our lives, and we love our annual vacations we spend with them in places like Maine and Vermont.
Adopting is something both of us have always wanted to do, for years before we even met. We have both faced some serious adversity in our lives but through hard work and some luck we have built a stable and loving family and household, and we can’t wait to share it with a special child and give them the best possible chance at a happy and healthy life.
