Sarah & Patrick

We are Sarah and Patrick. We live in Northern NJ in a community less than an hour from Manhattan. Having a family was always important to us, and we are excited to welcome a child through adoption. After meeting in 2007, from the start we knew not only would we fall in love but also we'd become best friends! We married soon after, and have been adventuring together ever since. Both of us enjoy music, traveling both locally and abroad, holidays and long weekends with family and close friends, the arts, and history. We also celebrate each other's differences - Sarah loves all things Disney and Patrick has a strong passion for sports.

Tina & Mike

Hi! Thanks for checking out our profile. We're Mike and Tina, and we've been married for 11 years. In some ways, we're very different. Mike is quiet and reserved, and loves to play and watch sports. Tina is talkative and energetic, and loves music and theater. But we both have common values and morals: being honest and truthful, treating others the way you want to be treated, cherishing those you love. These beliefs keep us committed to each other and to our family.

Hi! Our names are Lauren and Emily. (Lauren is the one with short hair; Emily has long hair). We're honored to be considered as prospective adoptive parents. We are looking forward to sharing our lives with a child, and all the new adventures and challenges that will bring. We met in 2005 while working together as AmeriCorps members at a local housing program. Lauren pretended to be real tough, but Emily didn't buy it.

Hi there! Although we have not yet met you, we admire the strength, courage, and love you have for your child and we are humbled that you would consider allowing us to be part of your journey. We are grateful for the time you are spending getting to know us. We are two smart guys who can be serious when we need to be, but would much rather be adventurous and a little silly. Whether it's a hayride with our nephews, surprise birthday trips, visiting every random tourist attraction we can find, or just quiet nights at home on the couch with our dogs, we try to pack as much fun into life as possible. And we can't wait to share our crazy, wonderful life with a child.

Reshma

Reshma

Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me. As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a mom. I've also always known that I am capable of loving a child that didn't come through me. I consider adoption a special and unique way to become a parent. After 15 years of establishing myself as a professional working in education, I'm ready to devote myself to motherhood.  When my baby arrives, I will take a few months off and my work is such that I can work from home as needed. I also have a whole village of family members and friends who are ready to support my child and me.

Although we don't know you, we admire your thoughtfulness and bravery for considering adoption. We offer our heartfelt support as you plan the future for yourself and for your child. There are all sorts of factoids that can be scrambled together to explain us: we are people who place a premium on friendship and loyalty (we met at a mutual friend's wedding); we love seeing the unfamiliar world (Whitney lived in London for a semester in college, and Robert has traveled around the country twice); we are "culture vultures" (museums, concerts, theater, movies, restaurants, books - we love it all). We are also big baseball fans. In short, we love being alive and are determined to experience as much of what is good on Earth as we can.
