Emily & Simon

Family Type: Traditional
State we live in: Connecticut

dear expectant mother

We are very happy to be considered as adoptive parents for your child. Your child will join a loving home. We are very family oriented and maintain close relationships with our parents, siblings, and extended family. There are many family and holiday traditions each of us grew up with, and we’re sure we will create our own as well.

Meal time, bath time, and stories at bedtime are all important family bonding opportunities we are eager to embrace. We both love puzzles and building blocks. We imagine creating large buildings and imaginary lands with our child that will cover the entire floor.

We will have regular visits and dinners with relatives and will spend time together on holidays. As our child grows and develops interests, we will foster and support those activities. It is our feeling that some activities are fine; however, we will be cautious not to overschedule their life. Our goal is to raise a confident and self-sufficient person who knows they are loved and valued. We will support your child in whatever they choose, whether that path that includes college or a trade.

Thank you for considering us as parents to your child.

About Us

We met through a mutual friend and made an immediate connection. Emily is a preschool teacher, and Simon is a woodworker and architectural draftsman. A good sense of humor is one of our commonalities. We laugh and joke with each other a lot. Some of our favorite activities are going to the movies, taking walks with the dogs, playing games, swimming, or going to the beach, museums, historical sights, and parks. We love our activities, but we also enjoy snuggling up with each other on the couch and watching a movie at home. Emily loves to read and is continually expanding her cooking and baking skills. Simon loves working on cars, electronics, and woodworking and is a great handyman. We look forward to having our child join us in these activities and more.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a three-bedroom home with a fenced-in yard. Our home is in a family neighborhood with a town recreation center and park just a five-minute walk up the road. We enjoy taking walks there with our two small dogs: a corgi and a Maltese/poodle mix. Both of our pets LOVE people and are gentle with children. Our fenced-in backyard and full basement rec room are both great areas for family activities. One of our most favorite features of our home is that it is just a ten-minute ride from Emily’s parents’ house. We are very close and visit a few times every week.

Our Extended Family

Simon is the oldest of three children and has one sister and one brother. Emily is one of three children with an older brother and a twin brother. We both have good relationships with our parents and siblings.

There are many traditions we grew up with that we are excited to continue with our own family: visiting Christmas light displays, cutting down and decorating the tree, baking/cooking for various holidays, Chinese New Year, first and last day of school, being a room parent at our child’s school, birthday parties, church events, etc. Both of our families are so excited about our adoption plans and are eager to be part of our family life. They can hardly wait to shower their love and support on our new little one! Some are already planning potential happenings for our growing family.

What Led Us To Adoption

We are very excited to share our lives with a child and to grow as a family. We have close relationships with couples who have adopted and people who have been adopted, and we’ve spoken with them in depth about how this miracle has changed their lives. We feel strongly that having the gift of a child added to our lives will be enriching for us and them. We have so much love to give and welcome all the love we will receive in return.
