Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

Happy with her choice of making an adoption plan and picking us! I hope she is certain that her baby is happy and super well taken care of and that she feel she will always have us as extended family.

Romy

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It is a diverse, lively beautiful suburban town, very kid oriented with some of the best schools in the country. Close to NYC but also to the Jersey shore. We love it here!

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

That we all have a purpose under that infinite sky and as sure as I am of that I am also sure our family will be complete though adoption.

Derek

Favorite season and why?

Summer! The world is greener, I feel as though all of creation is happier and full of life! Love the ocean and the beach is definitely one of my favorite places to be.

Romy

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

God is at the center of everything I do, everything I am and everything I strive for. When I look back at my life I see Him alongside me though every battle, and I am so grateful.

Romy

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

God and family. They are everything to me, my fuel, my motivation and infinite source of joy.

Derek

We are the best choice because…

We play hard and love hard. We are a stable, fun, active, super united family that loves the outdoors, traveling and the beach but also the culture of NYC... theater, art, music and diversity.

Derek

In five years, our relationship with you will...

Be exactly what you wish it to be. I feel as though we will be here for as much or as little as you are comfortable with.

Derek

Dogs or cats?

Both cats and dogs! We have a sweet, quiet cat, Roo who is almost 13! Both of us grew up with dogs at home and we are planning add a puppy to the family this next year!

Romy

My favorite place in the World is...

Home. There is no doubt that I love traveling and getting to know new places and cultures... exploring and learning new things but there is nothing like being in our home, with the fami

Romy

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

Gratitude for another day. Another day to teach and love on my kids, another day to learn something new, another opportunity to be a blessing in someone's life.

Dogs or cats?

I love all animals! Dogs and cats! My wife like to say I should have been a Vet.
