State we live in: Connecticut

dear expectant mother

Hi there! We are so blessed and grateful that you have taken the time to consider us as your partners in this journey! With adoption already a part of our immediate family, we know the wide range of emotions and feelings that go with the process. There will never be enough words to describe the incredible strength and courage it takes to consider an adoption plan, and just by being here, you already have our utmost respect.

We want you to know that while the road may be challenging, you do not have to walk it alone. We are fully committed, patient, and understanding of what lies ahead. Should you choose us, your child will enter the world with a loving, kind, nurturing, and dedicated couple to walk them through every stage of childhood development. We have been very thoughtful about taking this step together, and we know we will provide an incredible home for your child.

Michael was also a donor for a family, so while we will never experience carrying a child, we know the joy of giving the gift of life! It would be our honor and privilege to be chosen and granted the gift of parenthood to raise your baby in a home surrounded by love, laughter, and joy.

There will never be enough words to describe the incredible strength and courage it takes to consider an adoption plan, and just by being here, you already have our utmost respect.

About Us

We are a fun-loving couple ready to expand our family! Eric is the CEO of a multi-million-dollar health and human services nonprofit and served overseas in the Peace Corps upon graduating from college. Michael works remotely on an Emmy award winning show. We bonded a few years ago over our strong family values and relationships and have been inseparable ever since! We have always valued showing appreciation for one another by giving cards, going out for date nights, saying “I love you,” and spending quality time together. In our free time, we love to travel, hike, explore new areas, cook dinner together, binge our favorite shows, and play cards or games and of course spend time with our pets.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a charming, and friendly neighborhood in Connecticut with our two small dogs and adorable cat. We love this location for the amazing activities that surround us. We are close to the beach, great hiking trails, amazing restaurants and a quick drive to New York City or Boston. We cannot wait to share these experiences with a child! When we are not hiking the trails or exploring on a day trip, our home is our happy place. We take pride in keeping it constantly filled with music, laughter, love, friends, and family. In addition, we have a second family home in Ohio that we frequent a few times a year.

Our Extended Family

Family is everything to us! Combined, we make a good-sized group with five siblings and 12 nieces and nephews.. With Michael’s family based in Ohio and Eric’s in Minnesota, we rotate holidays out of state and plan frequent mini visits a few times a year. Our families (especially our mothers) could not be more excited that we are ready to start our own family! We take great pride in our close and special bonds with family, and our future baby will be spoiled with love all around!

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption is already a huge part of our family, so it felt like a very natural decision for us! Michael’s mother is adopted as well as a cousin, so it’s been a very familiar topic, including the recent journey of meeting maternal birth relatives. We know firsthand what a rewarding and special journey adoption is and decided early on it was the only way we wanted to expand our family. We have so much love to give and cannot wait to share that with a child!
