Vito + Janet

Thank you so much for considering adoption and taking the time to learn about our family! We are Vito and Janet, a loving couple from New York.

Hello

'Hello' Image

We always knew we wanted to become parents. When faced with challenges along the way we realized just what we would go through to make our dreams come true. With lots of prayer and support, we researched adoption and quickly decided this was something very special. We have so much love to give and what an amazing blessing it would be. In 2014 we adopted our son, Tyler, and our lives changed for the better.

We have such admiration for your strength and courage as you look at all options for your child. As parents, we understand the bravery, sacrifice, and selflessness, that you possess in exploring adoption. We promise if, given the opportunity, we will love your child unconditionally and provide a safe, stable, fun, loving environment. They will know their adoption story and the special way they came into our lives. They will know of you always!

Regardless of the decision you make, we wish you the best of luck and hope you find peace along the way.

Our Story

We met online in 2007 and our first date was at a local restaurant. The night was filled with great conversation, lots of laughs, and we have been together ever since! In 2009 we were married and celebrated our special day with 75 of our closest family and friends. We have experienced so many wonderful times together over the past thirteen years. With all of the good moments, we do not lose sight of the fact that relationships take work, no matter how in love you are. We are deeply committed to each other, our family, and our future together. We make every effort to communicate, love, and support each other, as well as find time to have fun.

About Janet By Vito

'About Janet by Vito' Image

Janet is truly my best friend. I knew from our first date that I had found a very special woman. One of the first things that attracted me to Janet was her genuine personality. She has a way of putting those around her at ease. She truly cares about making others comfortable and happy. She has a great sense of humor which makes life so much fun!

Watching Janet around our nieces and the children of our friends gave me a glimpse into how she would be as a mother. I always knew she would be kind, empathetic and loving, but these moments confirmed my thoughts. She is not afraid to get on a child's level with imagination and play. I once walked in and found her and our niece wearing tutus on their heads. I soon found out that a tutu makes a great substitute for a princess veil!

Janet is a great multi-tasker, something that does not come easy to us men! She is smart and I am always amazed at all she can accomplish in one day. She is very organized and motivated in life. At the end of the day, Janet is my biggest cheerleader. If there is one thing, I can say to sum it up, she is everything to me.

Meet Vito By Janet

Vito has a kind and loving personality. He is quiet and reserved, with a funny, dry sense of humor. His strong work ethic has made him a wonderful provider for our family. He is extremely handy, and I am never surprised to find him fixing, creating, or working on things around our home. I have learned so much about home improvements from being included in some of his projects.

I knew from very early on that Vito would be a great father one day. He is not afraid to show his sensitive side and loves being around children. His gentle and fun nature makes him the favorite Uncle to our nieces. It is not uncommon to find him sitting at the kids table at a family gathering.

Vito loves me unconditionally and I never question his love. Although he may not be a perfect person, he is the perfect person for me!

Tyler

Tyler is an intelligent and energetic 5-year old. He loves superheroes, trains, Legos, and spending time with friends and family. He is full of life and seeks adventure. Soccer, baseball, and playing tag are some of his favorite activities. He is sensitive, kind, and funny! Tyler is so excited to become a big brother. He is looking forward to teaching his sister or brother all that he knows. He cannot wait to read stories, give lots of cuddles, and play.

Home

In 2011 we purchased a 4-bedroom, 2 bath home on a family-oriented street in the suburbs of New York. On most days you will find children riding bikes or playing basketball outside. While our city is large, we have a close-knit community. The neighbors organize block parties in the summer and Halloween is a very big deal.

Education is very important to us. Our city's schools have received the prestigious Blue-Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education. We are happy to raise our children in a place where they will have friends and classmates with such a broad range of experiences.

Our city has the best of both worlds. We are close to local stores and the creature comforts of city life. We are also surrounded by nature with large areas of untouched forests, meadows, and acres of hiking trails. We live a short distance from a nature study and less than a mile to the beach.

Travel & Fun

Traveling is one of our favorite pastime activities. Exploring new places and creating memories has been very important in our relationship, and something we believe is important for children to experience. Our family has time-share in Aruba and the yearly trips to the island are filled with lots of fun. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins, all get to share a week together and it is something we look forward to. Though Aruba is our regular vacationing spot, we enjoyed a Disney cruise in 2017 and a trip to Disney World in 2019. It was a magical time, not only for the children, but also for the adults. We do not always need to travel to far and exotic locations.

We enjoy destinations right here in NY and the surrounding states. One of our favorite places for a quick weekend getaway is a ranch about 2 hours from home. Horseback riding, paddle boats on the lake, and eating smore's around the campfire are just a few of the things that we like to do when visiting. Vito likes to fish, hunt, and work on projects around the house. Janet enjoys puzzles, board games, cooking, and planning parties. Together we love to travel, attend concerts and baseball games, go for walks, explore hiking and bike trails, and trips to the park.

Family

Family is very important to us. We have wonderful, supportive parents and siblings that share in our excitement of adopting another child! Vito has 3 brothers, two are married with children. Janet has one sister, who lives two blocks away with her husband and two daughters. We are fortunate to have our extended families close by, and we get to spend time with them often. Watching all the children grow up enjoying pool parties, cookouts, picnics, movies, and holidays together confirms our belief in the value of family. They are kind-hearted, open-minded, and fun-loving. We cannot wait to share our special family with another child!
