FC: Cathy & Brian
1: Thank you for taking the time to learn a a little about us. We are very excited to become parents through adoption. Deciding to place your child up for adoption is truly a brave and unselfish act, one that we would never forget and always cherish. We promise to provide your child with love, a safe environment, good family values and educational opportunities. We appreciate your dedication to finding a family that is the right fit and hope to hear from you and learn more about you.
2: We had our first date October 31st, 1994 and have been together ever since. The fall is our favorite time of year so we got married on a fall day surrounded by family, friends, mums and pumpkins. In 2008 we decided to start a family and went through numerous infertility treatments. We were diagnosed with unexplained infertility and decided that adoption was the path for us to become parents. We started researching, reading and joined numerous support groups and have made wonderful friends. Our families are so excited for us and they cant wait for our dream of becoming parents to be fulfilled. | About us
3: Our relationship is a strong one based on love, friendship, honesty and trust. We both have very strong family values and plan on raising a child in a stable loving environment. Education is also very important to us and living on Long Island offers many opportunities. We both share a love of nature and love spending weekends in our house in the Catskills. We are so excited to watch a child explore the outdoors and make a lifetime of memories there.
4: Brian is a very calm and patient man. he always makes me smile and has a big heart. He is truly my best friend. He is a very talented finish carpenter and is extremely respected in his field. His work in our house, family and friends houses is always the best quality. He takes pride in every project and the end results always reflects it. | Brian
5: Children love Brian and he will make a wonderful father. Because of choices he has made in his life we are financially stable. He plans on being a very involved father and is looking forward to being there for every milestone. He looks forward to being there for a child's first words, first steps, first day of school, baseball games, dance recitals or just spending the day playing in the yard. I look forward to seeing the joy in his face when a child calls him dad.
6: Cathy is a very down to earth person who is always smiling and enjoying life. You can always find her going out of her way to make others feel comfortable in our home. She always goes above and beyond to make the holidays special for everyone in the family. She has made our home a very warm and nurturing environment, a place everyone always feel welcomed in | Cathy
7: Cathy's passion for handmade items stem from her childhood with her Mom, whether she is making curtains for our home or gifts for others. She loves to crochet, make jewelry, sew and crosstitch. When she isn't busy crafting you can find her in the kitchen cooking or baking. She loves to can preserves from fresh berries and apples from our property upstate and share them with family and friends | When it comes to children Cathy has a nurturing loving way about her. She will make a wonderful mother and will enjoy all the precious moments a child has to offer
8: When we looked for a house we searched for one that needed some love and attention. It was a real fixer upper but we enjoyed working together and are so proud of all our hard work. | Our Home
9: We love having family and friends over and want them to always feel welcomed in our home. We have a big backyard with lots of room to play. There are so many great parks close by and a great elementary school a few blocks away.
10: Our Vacation house in the Catskills | One of our favorite vacation spots is in the Catskill Mountains. Since we go so often we decided to find a place of our own. We found a small fixer upper on a beautiful piece of land.
11: Some of our favorite things to do like fishing, hiking and apple picking we can do on our own property. We love spending summers here with our family and friends but the fall is our favorite time.
