We worked together for years before realizing that we wanted more than the friendship that we had developed and we started dating. We quickly realized how much we both loved learning, reading, and most importantly spending time together! Mas has a biological daughter, Keira, through his first marriage, and Lauren quickly formed a bond with her. We have been married for four years and we have built a strong and loving foundation based on trust, support of one another, and lots of laughter. We would love to expand our family through adoption.
We both grew up in loving households that valued education, giving back to our community, and most of all, family. Because of this, we spend a lot of time with our families, which includes our parents, and siblings, as well as many cousins with children of their own. We volunteer at our local soup kitchen on Thursday mornings before work and Lauren sits on the board of a local charity. Some of our favorite family traditions are a big celebratory dinner on Christmas Eve hosted by Lauren’s parents and our annual week at the Jersey Shore with Keira, Lauren’s parents, her brother, sister-in-law, and their baby. We have so many joyful times together - whether we are making homemade pasta or building sand castles on the beach - we would love to have another child to share all our life with.
We love to cook, travel, ride our bikes, read, and play golf. We have a lovely four bedroom home in a safe and beautiful neighborhood. We have a park within walking distance and the schools are excellent. We enjoy riding our bikes to the farmer’s market in town on the weekends and then using the items we purchased to make healthy meals. We also love to have friends and family over for get-togethers where there is always lots of fun, games, and food!
We are excited about the adoption, as is Keira and our extended families. We speak openly and honestly about the adoption and would maintain that philosophy if we are fortunate enough to have a child through adoption. We are comfortable with staying in contact with you through letters, pictures, and meeting at the annual Family Options picnic. Our hope is we can share our love of all life with our children. Thank you for providing us hope that that dream may one day be a reality.
