Hello! We are Marie-Claire and David. Thank you for looking at our profile and considering us as parents for your child. We appreciate what an important decision this is for you.
We want you to know that we admire your courage and strength.
We met in 2007 while taking a photography class in South Philadelphia. After getting to know each other in class, we began spending time together outside of class and found we had a bond that we’d never experienced with anyone else before. We were married in 2010 and have been enjoying the journey through life together ever since. Our relationship is strong because we share core values of open communication, showing respect for each other every day, and having fun together. When we come home from work every day, we spend time talking to each other about our day or anything else we think of. There always seems to be something we want to share with the other person!
David is a technician at a hospital and Marie-Claire works in finance at a mutual fund company. We live in Philadelphia in a family-friendly neighborhood. We participate in a lot of community activities and often talk about how much we look forward to bringing our child along with us. David has three daughters from his first marriage who are all in their 20s. One of the things that impressed Marie-Claire the most about David was the wonderful job he did raising his girls. They are all remarkable women who love to spend time with us. They are looking forward to welcoming a brother or sister into the family and being the cool big sisters!
We are so excited about expanding our family. We often discuss all the wonderful things about life that we want to show him or her. We can’t wait to teach them about the world and provide a safe, happy and loving environment where our child can feel proud of themselves and who they are.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We hope you find peace and strength as you move through your decision.
