Hello, we are Barbara and Nancy. We would like to thank you for looking at our profile and getting to know us a little bit.
We know that right now you are facing a very difficult decision, but we also want you to know that we think you are very brave and loving no matter which path you decide to take.
We also know that it is hard to get to know someone just by reading a profile, but we hope you will be able to get a sense of who we are through these words and photos.
When we met in 2010, it turned out we lived three blocks away from each other in Brooklyn. We fell in love and built a bond and knew we wanted to be together for the rest of our lives. We married in 2013 at an old carriage house in our neighborhood, and we were blessed to be surrounded by accepting and loving friends and family.
The strength of our relationship lies in the deep love and respect we feel for each other, and that we share so many values: honesty, kindness, caring, and the importance of dedication and hard work. Barbara has worked for the same publishing company in Manhattan since graduating from college, and Nancy has worked in advertising for almost fifteen years and is also an artist who often shows her work in galleries. We surround ourselves with loving family, friends, neighbors, laughter, music, art, reading and outdoor activities. We also like to volunteer our time to help others.
We have a lot of fun together, whether it’s traveling to a new destination or one of our favorite ones—we love the mountains and beach. We’ve been through a lot of sad times too, and we know that we can rely upon each other and our big family and group of friends to get through hard times. We have both found that laughter is a good way to remind us of the joys in life.
We have a lot of children of all ages in our lives. Between us we have twelve nieces and nephews and many neighbors and friends with children of all ages who we spend our time with. Our long-lasting and close relationships have created an extended family community that we both rely on and contribute to on a daily basis.
We both knew we wanted to have children and build a family. It soon became clear to us that the best way for us to build our family would be through the gift of adoption. We are so grateful for all that we have together and the love that we’ve found. We are a team, and strive to make each other happy and healthy, and we can’t wait to share our life and love together with a child and to give him or her the best chance for a happy life.
We are grateful and honored that you’re considering us to be a part of your child’s life, and we will give that child all of our love and support, and provide him or her with as many opportunities as we possibly can. If you feel we are the right couple to parent your child, we’d love to meet you.
We truly wish you peace and strength during this journey.
