Hello! We are Missy and Dan-el, and we are delighted that you have taken the time to view our profile. Thank you for considering our profile as you make your decision. We met at a baseball game 10 years ago and haven’t looked back. What brought us together was a love of sports, a zest for travel, and a passion for reading—all things we would love to share with our child.
Our home is multicultural, from the foods we eat to the holidays we celebrate: Missy grew up in an Italian-American household in the suburbs, and Dan-el grew up in a bilingual Dominican-American household in the city. We love nothing more than to bring our families and friends together.
Adoption has always been dear to our hearts because we see it as a profoundly meaningful way of building our family. We can’t wait to embark on the next stage of this journey.
