ABOUT US

Five years ago, we had a fairytale wedding and two years later, we welcomed our daughter, Layla, into our family. We have always dreamed of having another child, but after several heartbreaking miscarriages, we have decided to grow our family through the blessing of adoption.

A Little About

STEPHANIE

- Written By TOm -

Stephanie is my everything. She is my partner, my rock and my best friend. Falling in love with her was easy. I have always been drawn to her loving and empathetic nature. Her down to earth personality and sense of humor have always made me feel like I married my best friend. Stephanie has many hobbies and is very creative. She loves making arts and crafts and planning vacations. I love that she always keeps things interesting by finding fun activities for us to do with our daughter. What I love most about Stephanie is simple; she is an absolutely exceptional mother and wife. She goes above and beyond to provide our home and family with everything we need to thrive and live our best lives. Seeing her become the incredible mother that she is has made me appreciate and love her more and more every day.

DO WHAT YOU LOVE,

LOVE WHAT YOU DO

Stephanie started her career as a special education teacher. After realizing a teaching career would not allow her to be home during the day to raise a child, but still desiring to help others, she switched into the healthcare field. She is now a radiology technologist, specializing in mammography. She only works two nights a week, so she is fortunate to be home during the day to care for our daughter and future children.

A Little About

TOM

- By Stephanie -

I may be a little biased, but Tom is the greatest man I know! He is loving, fun, compassionate and motivated. When he isn’t hustling at his day job and our real estate investments, he is living his best life with his family and friends. With his outgoing and funny personality, it’s no wonder so many people love spending time with him. Tom is a great musician and athlete. He taught himself how to play multiple instruments and has written many songs. He loves to stay active by working out, biking and running around with our daughter. 

Above all, Tom is an amazing dad! He always goes above and beyond for our daughter, whether it be dressing up as a Disney prince, imitating an animal at the zoo or dropping everything to sit down and read her a book. He cannot wait to become a dad again!

DO WHAT YOU LOVE,

LOVE WHAT YOU DO

Tom is a heating and air conditioning technician and absolutely loves his job. He gets to go to different homes every day, meet new people and fix complex problems. There is nothing more satisfying to him than making someone’s day by fixing their problem in their time of need. Plus, having a mechanically inclined problem solver in the house comes in handy!

Our Home

We live in a suburban town in New York with excellent schools. What we love most about our home is our swimming pool, playground, cozy living room, and playroom. Our home is walking distance to a pond, parks, many restaurants and is a ten-minute drive to the beach. The community we live in offers many local events and festivals that we enjoy attending.

THINGS

WE LIKE TO DO

We love going on new adventures. We go on multiple vacations a year and are halfway through visiting all 50 states. One of our all-time favorite spots to visit is Disney World. Layla has already gone 3 times!

We always try to find fun new things to do as a family. We center our days around activities for our daughter that also bring out the inner child in us. We enjoy exploring the many parks and zoos in our area. During the summer, we spend many days and evenings in our pool or at the beach. When it snows, we head outside to build snowmen and go sledding.

As active as we are, we never pass up on an opportunity to hang around the fire pit making s’mores or to have a movie night.

MEET OUR FAMILY

Family is more important than anything!

Stephanie comes from a very tight knit family. She is extremely close with her parents, sister and extended family. She loves to play and be silly with her niece and nephews. Stephanie has the honor of being Godmother to two of her nephews. Most of her family lives less than 20 minutes away. We frequently visit her family in Florida, who live 15 minutes from Disney World.

Tom comes from a very big, loving family. He is very close with his parents, brother, two sisters, and nephews. Tom has over 40 aunts, uncles and cousins. Many of them live all over the country but we never pass up on an opportunity to go on vacation and visit them. Even though many of them are far away, there is nothing they would not do for each other.
