hi there!

ANDREA, BILLY,

& Our 9-year-old son, William

- DEAR Birth parents -

We would like to share more about our family, to help you decide if we’re the right fit for you.

¡HABLAMOS INGLÉS Y ESPAÑOL!

We’re thrilled to start our adoption journey! We want to adopt because we believe family is about connection. We respect and acknowledge your tough decisions. Our goal is to have open communication with our child discussing their adoption journey as they grow. We are absolutely willing to be a part of an open adoption so that we can continue to be connected to our child’s birth parent(s). We would be happy to send pictures, updates and letters as our child grows. Every adoption story is unique; we want our child to take pride in theirs. As we anticipate parenthood, we commit to lifelong learning, adapting to the dynamics of adoption.

Please know, your child will grow up knowing the depth of your love behind your brave decision to choose adoption. Welcoming a child into our home is a moment we eagerly anticipate, and we’re excited about the journey that lies ahead. We hope this profile provides insight into our lives and the kind of life we can offer your child. Thank you for allowing us to open our world to you!

CELEBRATING OUR FRIENDS WEDDING

We initially met in college where Billy played lacrosse and Andrea played soccer, but it wasn’t until years later when we reunited in a beach town in Long Island, New York. We shared laughter and immediately reconnected.

We dated for four fun years, leading to our marriage in 2012. During this time we have shared dreams, adventures, and a deep appreciation for family values. We both hold our families in high regard. Our in-laws play a huge role in our lives. They add richness to our family dynamics and having them close by is a continuous gift. Our son and our nieces and nephews enjoy almost daily hangouts, filled with laughter, shared experiences, and the formation of lifelong bonds.

DAILY LIVES

OUR FAMILY SHARES A LOVE FOR OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES. Whether it’s hiking, biking, or camping, we find joy in spending time in nature. With our camper, we make an effort to maximize our outdoor adventures whenever we can. While traveling and spending time outdoors are passions of ours, another one of our favorite things to do as a family is to watch movies together at the end of a long day!

SUMMER TRAVELING AND LAKE PADDLING

Andrea is such a blast, spreading joy and laughter wherever she goes. Her thoughtfulness in parenting our son William is truly admirable, and I find myself learning valuable lessons from her every day. As a School Counselor, she brings her expertise in supporting students socially and emotionally into our home, making her an exceptional parent. Beyond our immediate family, Andrea’s passion extends to our extended family. She takes joy in planning family events and infuses every moment with a special touch, emphasizing the importance of togetherness. William and I feel so blessed to have Andrea as a mother and a wife.

MY CAREER

Being a School Counselor in a middle school is truly awesome, with each day presenting unique challenges. I love helping kids work through the complexities of middle school. It’s incredibly rewarding to be a support during these very important years. What adds to the joy is the similarity of my schedule with that of my husband and child, who are also in school each day. This allows for a lot family time, aligning perfectly with my goal of prioritizing quality moments with loved ones.

ON A HIKE WITH MY PUP, HOPE

My admiration for my husband, Billy, knows no bounds. I genuinely think he was destined to be an amazing dad. He strikes a perfect balance between being deeply engaged and laid-back, making every moment enjoyable. Billy’s passion for the outdoors keeps us constantly active, and his love for adventure makes every outing special. As a lacrosse coach and Spanish teacher in our community, he’s adored by the kids he works with. We are so grateful that he is in our lives.

MY CAREER

Teaching Spanish has been a passion of mine ever since my college trip to Mexico. The language has always excited me, and it’s amazing to share that enthusiasm with my students. I aim to inspire a love for Spanish, as well as impart my sense of adventure and joy of traveling. As a lacrosse coach, I get to connect with my students in a different way, having fun while sharing my knowledge of the game. Having the same schedule as my son and wife comes with countless benefits, and one of my favorites is having summers off together. It allows us to spend quality time and indulge in activities we all love, like traveling!

William

+ our pets

Our son, William is a kind and happy child. Passionate about music and acting, he plays the violin, trumpet, recorder, and sings in the chorus. William also enjoys art and drawing as well as hiking, biking, and skiing, but more than anything, he loves being a kid and playing with his cousins and friends in the neighborhood. We are so lucky to have such a great kid be a part of our lives. He is excited to welcome a sibling to the family!

Our pets also share the love of our family. We have a fun and spunky cat named Egan and our dog Hope travels with us everywhere, taking part in all of our adventures.

Home

Our New York town is conveniently close to stunning beaches and just a couple of hours away from breathtaking mountains and forests. Exploring the beauty of New York has become a beloved pastime for us. Despite its decent size, our town has a small-town charm, providing opportunities for the community to unite through various events. It’s a lively and diverse place, creating an ideal environment to raise children. The town offers many activities and opportunities to explore interests.

Family

“Blood makes you related. Love makes you family.”

The driving force behind our adoption journey is our deep love for family. Growing up, both of us experienced the closeness of extended family, and it has been a tremendous blessing in our lives. Our family is wonderfully diverse, reflecting different races and backgrounds that have enriched our understanding of the world. Each family brings a unique set of traditions that we eagerly anticipate passing down to our children. One cherished tradition in Andrea’s family is the weekly Sunday dinner, where aunts, uncles, and cousins gather for a delightful pasta feast. It’s a time to share funny stories and simply enjoy each other’s company —an absolute blast! In Billy’s family, his mother stands as the true matriarch, showering her grandchildren with unconditional love and actively supporting us in raising our children while we work. The added blessing is that Billy’s family resides in the same neighborhood, allowing us to spend ample time together. It’s truly a gift.
