Hi! We are so grateful and honored that you’re taking the time to learn more about us. We recognize that this is a difficult time for you. We both truly admire you for your strength, compassion, and courage in making this difficult decision.
We have been together for over 10 years, married for 5, and live in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We were very blessed to have our son, Ethan, join our family through open adoption at birth about 2 years ago. Ethan’s also excited about the welcoming a new member to the family as well!
Our neighborhood boasts plenty of kids and one of the best school districts in the state. Jim’s extended family lives just down the street and Ben’s extended family is in his hometown of Pittsburgh. We spend a lot of time with family – from weekly family dinners with Jim’s family, to spending a week or two with Ben’s family in Pittsburgh, we love our families.
To us, family is all about being together and being loved – unconditionally. As parents, we love showing the world to our family, whether through trips to the Jersey shore or across the globe, cooking out in our own backyard, riding bikes, or just spending time together with family and friends.
We cannot wait to share our unconditional love and welcome another child into our home and our hearts. Thank you for taking the time to read about our family!
