Thank you for considering us as you explore adoption for your baby. Please know how much we admire your strength and courage during this challenging time. We deeply respect all of the love, thought and care that you are putting into making this difficult decision, and our hearts are with you.
Our names are Daniel and Lisa. After learning a little about us, we hope you will want to get to know us better.
Having been married for eleven years, we are excited about welcoming a child into our family and providing a home full of unconditional love, lots of laughter and encouragement.
We live in a diverse and culturally rich neighborhood in New York City with neighbors and friends from all over the world and with many different types of families. Parks, playgrounds, museums and excellent schools are just a few steps from our front door. Our families live nearby, and we have a supportive extended network of parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends in the NY/NJ area who are eager to welcome a child to our family.
We are passionate about education, personal expression through the arts and community involvement. Daniel enjoys making pottery, reading everything from biographies and history to science fiction, and playing tennis as well as other sports – while Lisa competes in ballroom dancing, sews and plays piano and ukulele.
But most of all we look forward to spending time with family and friends, appreciating those small moments that bring meaning to our lives: birthday parties, family BBQs, weekend dinners full of laughter. We can’t wait to love and nurture a child, and help them explore the world.
Thank you for your interest in learning about our family as you make this incredibly difficult decision.
Please know that, should you choose us to be your baby’s family, the child will grow up in a safe and loving home where his or her talents, interests and abilities are encouraged and nurtured. We will guide them on their journey to explore the world in an accepting and supportive environment, full of loving family and friends. We will help them find their own voice. We will listen to them. And most of all we will love them and cherish them as our own.
Whatever your ultimate decision may be, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your child, and we wish you all the best!
Daniel and Lisa
