Hello, we are Barbara & Joe. We are a loving couple who enjoy a wonderful marriage together as husband and wife. We knew we always wanted to raise a family; to see a child grow; to nurture their dreams & aspirations. Through the precious gift of adoption, we hope to one day become parents and embark upon a journey that will surely enrich our lives. We thank you for reading our story, learning more about us and helping us along that road to parenthood.
We met online in 2007. It’s funny how it took the global community of the World-Wide-Web to find each other when we only lived a couple of miles from one another. It was a leap of faith, but one we are glad we took. After several months of corresponding, we met and had an instant connection. We felt so comfortable around each other and shared so many interests. A year later we were engaged and married the following year.
Joe works in Information Technology in New York City and Barbara works as a legal secretary in New Jersey. We are hardworking people who are proud of what we have accomplished professionally, but even more proud of our commitment to each other and our family.
About Joe (through Barbara’s eyes)
Joe is a wonderful husband and is my best friend. He is very kind, caring and compassionate. He is a very dedicated person who is close with his family and always makes everyone around him feel at ease. He has a great sense of humor and always knows how to make me laugh. He is passionate about music and loves to share his interests with me. These things make up a big part of who he is and I know he would make a great father.
About Barbara (through Joe’s eyes)
Barbara is the most loving and caring person I know. Her family is the most important thing in her life and she will do anything to help them or make them happy. She is a very patient person with an easy going personality that warms the hearts of everyone she meets. She is many things to many people: a friend, a daughter, a niece, a sister, a wife, an aunt, a God-Mother and with each role she plays she does so with grace and generosity. I know that someday she will also make a wonderful mother to one special child.
We love to laugh and spend time together, whether it’s a quiet evening at home watching TV or gathering with family and friends. We enjoy attending concerts, plays and comedy shows together. We also enjoy traveling and have been to various places in North America and Europe. We would love to someday share these experiences with our child.
Our Friends and Family
We both come from very close-knit families and see our extended families regularly, as we all live in close proximity to each other. They are very supportive of our decision to adopt and are looking forward to being an important part of that child’s life. We are lucky enough to be the Aunt and Uncle of three incredible nephews. For one of them, we are also the very proud God Parents, a role we take very seriously. We would love for our adoptive child to spend time playing and having fun with our extended family.
Our Home and Community
We live in a quiet suburban townhouse community. Our two story townhouse sits across from an open field and the development includes a swimming pool and tennis courts. The location is close to schools, hospitals, recreational facilities and the downtown area, complete with many restaurants and community activities. Our house is more than the structure in which we live. It is a home that we hope to share with our child and build a lifetime of wonderful memories together.
Our Message to You
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us as a couple and considering us as the adoptive parents of your child. We know that this is probably the most difficult decision you will make, but one that is born out of love and hope. We pray that you find the strength to make the right choice and the peace and comfort of knowing that as adoptive parents, we cherish the opportunity to raise that child with unconditional love and support.
All The Best,
Barbara & Joe
