dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and our adoption story. We are so appreciative that you are opening your heart to adoption and considering giving us a chance to make our family whole. We cannot imagine the emotions you are experiencing at this moment, and your courage throughout this process is inspiring. As mothers, we recognize your selflessness and have profound respect for you. We wish you all our love while you navigate this difficult process.

Should you choose our family, we promise to give your child everything we have to offer: unconditional love, support, and acceptance. We vow to love, support, and guide your child throughout all of life’s milestones and challenges, and we will work hard to make sure your child is able to express himself or herself and become a strong, independent person. Our son, Quinn, is also excited to welcome a sibling to the family! Together, they will grow to value themselves, family, all people, all animals, and the environment. Our hope is that, like we did with our siblings, the kids will grow up with a deep friendship, always supporting and caring for each other.

We look forward to all the amazing, fun experiences and adventures we will have together, including family vacations and visits from our family. We have so much love to give, and we cannot wait to meet you and your child!

Our hope is that, like we did with our siblings, the kids will grow up with a deep friendship, always supporting and caring for each other.

About Us

Lauren grew up with her siblings in the suburbs of Ohio, loves soccer and everything outdoors, and is an environmental lawyer. Dani grew up with her siblings in the suburbs of New York City, loves adventures and food, and is also an environmental lawyer. Roughly 10 years ago, we met while studying in law school in New York, were married shortly thereafter, and have been exploring, laughing, and enjoying life since. Our adopted son, Quinn, is goofy, happy, and always on the move. He loves reading, coloring, and everything whales. Together, we love hiking and exploring national and state parks, traveling the world and throughout the U.S. to experience new cultures and foods, and visiting family throughout the country. When we are home, we love cuddling with our goofy dog, Aries, and spunky cat, Thor. We are so excited to welcome another adopted child into our loving and adventurous family!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a five-bedroom home in the suburbs of Connecticut that is surrounded by trees and wonderful neighbors. Our diverse cul-de-sac neighborhood is full of young families with children of all ages. On nice days, we see the neighborhood kids playing and riding bikes in front of our house. We have a large, fenced-in, and tree-lined backyard where Quinn and our dog, Aries, love running and playing fetch. Quinn is a big fan of our jungle gym, especially the swings. Our cat, Thor, loves to watch from inside the screened-in porch that overlooks the yard. Our home is warm, spacious, and perfect for spending time with family and making memories.

Our Extended Family

We both have big, loving extended families. Lauren has grandparents, parents, an older brother, and a younger sister. Lauren grew up playing soccer, dancing, and laughing with her sister. They are very close. Lauren’s family is very important to her. Although her siblings and parents are in different states, Lauren makes a point of speaking to them daily and seeing them multiple times a year, including during the annual family vacation to Hilton Head Island, SC.

Dani has a loving grandma, parents, a younger sister, and two older half-siblings. Dani and her younger sister are best friends. Dani has a large extended family that lives close by, has wonderful family gatherings, and loves to celebrate and have adventures together. Every Christmas, Dani’s family has themed holiday parties, such as an ugly sweater theme, and does a Secret Santa gift exchange. Our son and dog love our weekend hiking adventures with Dani’s sister, her husband, and their cute dog.

We are fortunate to live so close to family! We love seeing our families throughout the year, during holidays, special occasions, and family vacations. Both sets of grandparents are very excited to spoil their new grandchild!

Our Adoption Story

We have always wanted to expand our family through adoption and were so fortunate to adopt our son, Quinn. We met Quinn at the hospital for the first time and instantly fell in love. Our large, loving family accepted Quinn with open arms, especially since his cousin is also adopted! We are so excited to open our hearts again and grow our family through the adoption process. And Quinn can’t wait for a sibling to play, read, and explore with!
