Hello and Thank you! We’re Tom and Chrissy from New York.
Dear Expectant Mother: Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We can’t pretend to have ever walked a mile in your shoes. Please know that we admire your courage and strength and hope that this profile will provide you with an accurate image of who we are and the kind of parents we will be to your child. We hope you find comfort in knowing that your sacrifice means more than words could ever express and that you will be giving some lucky couple the greatest gift. We understand that this has to be incredibly hard for you. We know that without you and your sacrifice, we wouldn’t be able to become parents. We thank you for considering us and wish you peace as you make your adoption plan.
How We Met Each Other
We met in 2007 when our best friends purposely paired us up to walk down the aisle together at their wedding. They knew we would be a great match even before we did! We didn’t begin dating right away but we have been inseparable since. In 2013, we got married after almost 3 years of dating.
Getting To Know Us
We love to laugh and each day we seem to make each other laugh about something. Our interests include traveling, fishing, sports and spending time with friends and family. We both have stable and good jobs. Our home is one of our favorite places to be and we love to spend time relaxing and enjoying our time together there.
We are best friends besides being husband and wife. We are each other’s #1 fans and supporters. We both work hard at being good listeners and have created a home that is filled with love, laughter and lots of doggie kisses from our boy, Rocco. We can’t wait to give Rocco a human brother or sister one day!
Having a family has always been a dream of ours. We started trying for a family shortly after we got married and soon learned it would not be as easy as we thought. Although infertility was hard news for us to deal with, Tom and I now believe adoption is our plan and are very excited about it! Your child would be loved and cherished each and every day of our lives. We are excited to become first time parents and look forward to the day when our dream becomes a reality.
A Little About Tom, by Chrissy
Tom loves his family and friends. He is smart, kind and incredibly funny! He makes me laugh every day. Tom always puts my needs ahead of his own and I know he will do the same for some lucky child. He is fiercely loyal and protective of those that he loves. Tom has been a police detective for the last 20 years. His job is very rewarding and gives him a great sense of pride. He enjoys playing and watching sports, traveling, reading and going to concerts.
Tom is going to make a great dad one day. I can’t wait to see him share his love of sports with a child and add another Yankees fan to our team! I see how great he is with our nieces and nephews and it just makes my heart so happy. He truly is the most genuine person I know.
Introducing Chrissy, by Tom:
Chrissy was born to be a mother. She is always taking care of everyone around her and is the most loving person I know. She is always the first one to volunteer when someone needs help including watching our nieces and nephews every chance she can get. I have no doubt she is going to be an incredible mom one day. Chrissy has been an early childhood teacher for the last 20 years and talks about the students in her class as if they were her own. Her passion for nurturing children is very evident. Not only does she work at school but she spends her summer with children working at a local day camp. I have no doubt that she will love a child with everything she has. I know how much she wants to be a mother and I want more than anything to make that wish come true.
Home Sweet Home
We live in a very family- friendly town about an hour outside of New York City. It was the best feeling in the world to become homeowners 3 years ago! Our home is a short distance away from beautiful beaches, hiking trails, a world renowned golf course and an amusement park but the best part is how close our families live! We own a single family, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a big backyard on a tree lined street. The school district in our neighborhood is award winning and one of the best in the state.
We have a 3 year old shih-tzu named Rocco that is full of personality! Rocco is going to be such a loyal, lovable and devoted doggie brother. He loves going for walks, playing with his ball in the backyard and hanging out with us on the couch. Rocco has added so much joy to our lives and is a big part of our happy home!
The People We Love
Our family and friends all share in our joy and excitement at becoming parents! Family is very important to both of us and we spend a lot of time with our families. Between the two of us, we have 8 nieces and nephews who we love spending time with! Four of them live locally, and we are honored to be a big part of their lives including trips to Dave and Busters, going bowling and big family dinners. Chrissy’s parents and Tom’s mom and stepdad live nearby, and they’re over the moon excited about another grandchild to love.
We have always swapped holidays between our family’s homes each year. Christmas is our favorite holiday because all of the family is together celebrating the joy of the season-not to mention tons of food, laughs and of course presents! We can’t wait to start our own family traditions once we have our new little one. We look forward to baking cookies for Santa and leaving carrots out for the reindeer. We want to color eggs and have a big egg hunt on Easter and dress up and go trick or treating on Halloween. We have so many dreams and plans for our child!
Our Promise To You:
Our goal as parents is to provide your child with a happy, secure and loving home where he or she will always get 110% of our time and energy. As a couple and individually we have a lot of love to give and can guarantee you that this child will receive it all. We promise they will grow up in a home that teaches values, respect and compassion for others. He or she will be surrounded by endless amounts of silliness and giggles on a daily basis. We promise to love this child unconditionally and be patient and devoted parents. We want them to grow up to the kind of person we can all be extremely proud of. This child will be afforded a life that will allow them to explore who they are and what they stand for. We promise to share their birth story and how they came to us out of this incredible act of love. We would be happy to share photos and letters with you so that you could share in your child’s important milestones.
One Last Thank You
We are grateful to you for taking the time to look through our profile. It’s hard to summarize our lives in one little profile but we hope that we gave you a glimpse of who we are and what we have to offer. If your heart leads you to us, we promise to be the best parents that we can be. We cannot wait to welcome a little one into our family. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your journey.
