Fun, family-oriented couple in NYC hoping to adopt our first child - get to know us!
Hi, thanks for visiting! We're Amy and Henry (you probably got that already). We met in 2003, married in 2005, and we are excited to grow our family! We can't wait to share our life with a child!
As you click through and find out more about us, you'll see our main priority is spending time with the people we love. We're always learning and discovering, and would love to share our adventures with a little one.
We both grew up in the suburbs on Long Island. Amy has one younger brother, who's married and has one daughter. Henry has an older sister, married with a daughter and a son. We're very close with our families and try to get together often.
We own our home, and have a rescue cat who entertains us every day. He's a great cuddle buddy when he's not trying to steal our food!
Very early in our relationship, we discussed having kids. We're definitely on the same page with how we plan to parent, giving our child both independence and responsibility.
Adoption is not our "Plan B" - it's always been an option for us to grow our family. We each have a cousin who was adopted, so we grew up understanding it as simply another way to become parents. It's important to us to maintain a connection with our child's birth family, so we'll plan with you to find an arrangement that works for all of us.
We love our life and have worked hard to get where we are. We've come through some hardships and are always grateful for what we have, and the friends and family who supported us along the way.
We want to share what we've built with a child, and we'd be so honored if you would consider placing your baby with us!
