We are Whitney and Robert. We met over ten years ago, and have been married since 2015. We are so thankful that you have chosen to learn about us and our dream of becoming parents. 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.
We both have close friends since childhood, and many friends that we have gathered along the way through different schools and jobs. We have board game nights, and like to picnic and hike and watch movies outside in the summer. Our friends are excited that we are building our family through adoption and are very supportive.
We enjoy traveling near and far, but we always love coming home to Brooklyn. While we are close to Manhattan and all it has to offer, what we love most about Brooklyn is that it is a rich and diverse community with thoughtful, caring neighbors and local stores and shops. We live five minutes from two different parks, one with a large playground and another with walking trails along the water. Our block, lined with trees and brownstones, has lots of children and families.
Thank you for clicking on our profile. We are excited to build our family through adoption with love, compassion and encouragement. We wish you strength and peace as you make this decision.
