We're Cindy and Adam. We want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better. We put together this profile to give you an idea of who we are and the enormous amount of love we have for each other, for our families, and for the baby we think about every day. We've wanted a family for a long time and would feel incredibly blessed if this dream became a reality through adoption. We appreciate that you are considering us as you search for the best possible home for your baby. More importantly, if you choose us, we want you to feel safe and at peace with your decision. We look forward to speaking with you so we can begin to get to know each other better. We are interested in what your hopes and dreams are for your future and the life you imagine for your baby.
A Little About Us....
We'll start with a funny story about how we met. My friend Lisa, a hairdresser, was temporarily working at the barber shop that Adam frequented. One day, after I stopped by to drop off some holiday gifts for Lisa's children, Adam came in for a haircut. Lisa thought we'd make a good couple and refused to let Adam leave the barber chair unless he agreed to take my phone number. Since he was running late, he agreed. Adam called a week later and we went on our first date. A year later, we got married. That was 17 years ago. Both of us really want children. We come from close knit families who are a big part of our lives. We're from New York and want to raise our family here, so we bought a house close to Cindy's family. Both of our families are thrilled about our plan to adopt and can't wait to welcome another grandchild.
I always wanted to be a mom. I am very close to my family and make sure I speak with them often. I was born and raised in a suburb of New York with one brother. I come from a loving, supportive family and consider myself very blessed. My parents set a great example for us. They taught us to share, to give back to the community, and to always be kind to others. My childhood memories are amazing and I hope to be able to make new, unforgettable memories with our child.
I am very concerned about our community, and serve as president of the Ladies Auxiliary of the fire department. I graduated college and am currently working as a manager at a local bank. In my off time, I enjoy baking, spending time with my mom, watching sports with Adam-baseball being at the top of the list. I love kids and can't wait to be a mom. I promise to be one of the most loving, proudest moms anyone will ever meet.
Adam is a remarkable man and a wonderful husband. I have no doubt that he will be a great dad. He has a tender heart, a loving, gentle soul, and a great sense of humor. Adam runs a home-based property management firm and has also served in our local volunteer fire department for the past 18 years. He has strong ties to the community, and is well known by many, especially by those in public service. Adam attended college and graduated with a Bachelors degree. In his free time Adam enjoys fishing, snorkeling, reading, playing bag pipes, watching sports, and square dancing. What he enjoys most is making people laugh. He's upbeat and always there for his family and friends. Adam loves to cook for friends and family, and prepares an authentic 'low and slow' barbeque.
Cindy's parents, David and Roberta live only 10 minutes away. Every Sunday night we have dinner together. Cindy's brother lives in California and we get to see him and his fianc?e on holidays and visits during the year. We enjoy spending time with David and Roberta and often see movies and Broadway shows together. Adam's mom, Anita, who we greatly miss, passed away several years ago. She was a caring and loving mother, and always wanted grandchildren. Adam's father, Sidney, is retired and lives in Florida. He stays with us when he visits New York. Our parents have lots of time to devote to a baby and can't wait to meet the new member of our family.
Together, we have over 40 first cousins. We have a great relationship with all of them and enjoy spending time with them and babysitting the little ones. They promise they will return the favor when the time comes.
Our Thoughts And Dreams…
We believe every child should grow up in a warm, loving, and supportive environment. We feel children should be loved unconditionally, always and forever...no matter what. Kids should be told they are loved every day. We will encourage our child to be kind and generous. We will encourage our child to try new things and be involved in lots of activities, for this is a great way to find his or her passion, or just have fun. We plan on raising a child as we were raised... in a loving home, fun family vacations, and a great education. Family is important to us, and we feel a child should be a part of something where he or she feels secure, safe, and loved. We look forward to celebrating the same holiday traditions we grew up celebrating and creating new, lasting memories.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know us a little better. We hope to be able to speak with you soon.
With love...Cindy and Adam.
