Hi! We are Shanna and David – welcome to our page! Thank you for reading our profile and getting to know us. We are a loving couple that has been together for over seven years and we are looking to grow our family. As adoptive parents, we can promise your child unconditional love, security, laughter and happiness.
We have been married for a little over four years and have been dating since 2012. We met the traditional way...on the Internet (EHarmony to be mores specific). We love being married and love being together. We try to laugh as much as possible and try to see the humor in life. We work hard and are passionate about making sure we are there for our family and friends.
We both love music. On our first date, we figured out our common interest of music and played “name that tune” on our phones into the night. We still play “name that tune” to this day! Our favorite is 80’s music trivia.
A little about David (by Shanna)
David is an amazing husband and best friend. He is one of the most kindhearted people I have ever met. He is always there to help friends and relatives whenever they need. He is my rock, always there for me during the good and bad times. He is so intelligent, one of the smartest people I have ever met. He knows so much about everything; especially history, comic books(DC and Marvel), politics, movies, music and random trivia. For fun, David loves to go the movies, gym, watch TV or wander around the mall. David loves sweets including ice-cream and cookies and never ends his day without dessert. David also loves to laugh and is very funny. (Although he doesn’t like that I don’t always laugh at all of his jokes).He is upbeat and starts most of his day singing and sometimes even dancing. (The dancing isn’t the best but he tries so hard!) He loves his family so very much. He is always there for them whenever they need. He is also one of the most non-judgmental, sensitive and trustworthy person I have ever met. He loves me unconditionally and always makes me feel so loved.
About little about Shanna (by David)
Shanna is one of those one of those people you can’t help but love. She may be young physically, but she has an old soul. Despite her youthful appearance, she has the wisdom and compassion of a sage. Never does a day go by when either a close friends or family member asking her for advice. She can be a voice of reason; a shoulder to cry on; and a smile that can easily lighten up any room. Shanna also has a great sense of humor with an often dead pan delivery, like on our first date when she told me that she was captain of her college basketball team despite being only 5 feet even. I still laugh just thinking about it. Shanna has a strong appreciation for music and is a gifted singer. Sometimes she can be seen and heard singing the songs on her playlist aloud at the gym, and the people overhearing her, love it. I love it. In addition to music, Shanna enjoys long walks, reading and spending time with friends and family. From the first time I met her I could tell that there was something very special about her. When we first met, I found her intriguing. I loved how, on our first date, she made me laugh and smile. Nothing has changed. I have felt his way every day since. People often tell me that I smile a lot and if you ever met Shanna you would know why.
We come from a traditional Jewish background. We are reformed and celebrate all the major Jewish holidays including Rosh Hashana, Passover, and Hanukkah.
We are very close to our families. David has always had a close relationship with his Dad (who unfortunately passed away several years ago), Mom and three siblings (two sisters and a brother). Recently our family expanded when David’s sister and brother-in-law adopted two beautiful young girls. We love visiting them and spending holidays, particularly the “day-after-Thanksgiving”, which has become a cherished family tradition.
We are also very close with Shanna’s parents, sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. They live close to us and we see each other very often. We love being together for Sunday night dinners, family vacations and the holidays. Shanna is also blessed to come from a large close-knit extended family where family gatherings have plenty of food, laughter and music.
We live in a woody suburban area with a great school system, lots of parks and friendly neighbors. We live around the corner from Shanna's parents and her sister's family. Our home is close to beaches and New York City. We have a beautiful backyard with a play set and a big room perfect for a playroom.
We love going to shows and concerts, spending time with friends and family, and visiting new restaurants together. Shanna loves singing and playing the piano and David loves collecting and reading comic books as well as studying US history.
We are open with having an open relationship with you if you are comfortable. We would love to update you with letters, pictures, calls and annual visits at the Family Options picnic.
