A Letter from Steve & Beth
We are a Catholic family overjoyed to welcome our first child through adoption. We have both felt a strong calling to adoption and truly believe this is part of God’s plan for our family. We are blessed with a very close, extended family whom are all looking forward to sharing their love with your child.
We are so excited about the opportunity to grow our family through adoption. We have been married close to 10 years, have two puppies and a great extended/local family on both sides. We are outgoing and love entertaining family & friends at our home, especially around the holidays! We enjoy travel and especially enjoy the water. We are excited to bring our child to swimming lessons and get them out on the lake! We travel to Disney World several times a year and couldn’t be more excited to go as a family of 3.
We are actively involved in the lives of our young nephews who have already started bringing toys and books over for their new cousin! We enjoy the arts, theater and hopping on the local ferry/train to explore nearby towns and the city. We are practicing Catholics and enjoy being part of a faith-based community!
Steve is an excellent provider and a caring and compassionate partner. He loves all of his Italian/American traditions from Sunday dinners to family game night. He recently hosted his first annual “Sauce off”. He is so excited to pass down his secret ingredients and teach our child how to make the best meatballs!
Steve is often lovingly described as “the mayor”. He knows and is friends with everyone! I can already picture him walking around and introducing his child with pride. He has many hobbies – some include Golf & Billiards and he is an avid car enthusiast. He looks forward to car shows and days on the golf course with his child.
Beth is caring, compassionate, loving & empathetic. She also tells it how it is! She loves the sun, swimming, fashion and decorating. She always knows what is going on in the local community and plans day trips for family and friends. From apple picking to festivals, children’s theater and more – she looks forward to having a child to share these experiences with!
She enjoys Zumba, is a certified instructor and is excited to attend the Mommy and me classes. She is proud of her career as an Event Manager as she is able to bring family to the workplace by creating events and environments that allow people to slow down and enjoy what really matters.
Our home is located in beautiful Connecticut! Our location allows us to enjoy NYC, while living in a country setting. We are near the coast and enjoy bike riding by the ocean. Our town has beautiful pools, a splash pad, playgrounds, and parks right around the corner. Down the street is a local farm where they make fresh ice cream and kids can enjoy the animals!
We belong to a beautiful private beach/lake and local libraries have great programming for children. There are lots of places to sleigh ride, ice skate or snuggle up and enjoy good books! Our house has ample room for our growing family. We have a completed nursery and safe yard for your child to play and enjoy the outdoors.
Our families are praying with us and are overjoyed to welcome your little one. We have family dinners at least once a month with both sides of our family and attend Saturday evening mass with Beth’s grandparents, weekly. We are excited to add to our family and introduce our child to these traditions. We are blessed to have a strong support system and unconditional love.
First and foremost we will provide your child with a safe and loving home in which they will ALWAYS be our first priority. No matter what life throws at us, no sacrifice would be too great for us to handle. We will always teach your child to love God, themselves and others. We will encourage them to be strong and independent. We will let them make mistakes and lovingly help them learn from them. We will stand by their side no matter what. We will encourage a strong sense of self, an understanding of their roots and help them to grow into someone we will all be so incredibly proud of. We look forward to hearing from you!
