Our names are Frank and Arlene and we are a loving couple hoping to be the adoptive family
that you have been looking for. We promise to do everything within our power to give your child every opportunity that life has to offer. We promise to support in their emotional development, education, and raise them with love and respect. We promise to let them know their story and that he or she loved. We can't wait to share our lives with your baby/child.
We are excited that we have chosen to grow our family through private adoption and can't wait for this journey to begin. If you are pregnant or have a child and you would like to place him or her in a loving home, we hope that we are the family you have been looking for.
We love to travel. In seven years together we have been to Aruba, Puerto Rico, Sicily, Portugal, France, Florida Keys, Boston, Vermont, Washington DC just to name a few.
We call ourselves the dynamic duo because together we are a strong couple.
We have know each other through mutual friends since 1997. In February 2011, we got reacquainted, fell in love instantly, and we were married in March of 2012. Since then we have traveled, opened two women's clothing stores, purchased our home and now with your help, we can begin our family! We can't wait to share our love with a little one.
I am a fun loving person. I am patient and thoughtful. I was raised to respect and love the people around me. I have an easy going personality. My wife and I are a great team because we both love each other very much and we communicate very well together. When we get together with our friends and their children, I am their Uncle Frank and Arlene is their Titi R. We both melt when the kids use these endearing names. I grew up playing soccer, basketball, baseball team sports but when I got into high school I focused my time on music. I hope to share my childhood experiences with a child someday. I have a masters degree in Finance and International Business. I work in NJ for a company that is flexible, with work from home options. I promise to support and nurture a child and help him or her excel in what they love to do. My parents, my brother and my sister in law look forward to our growing family.
I was raised Catholic and to be strong, hardworking, independent, honest and a loving person. I believe in doing the right thing and in fairness. I grew up speaking Portuguese, Spanish and English. Many summers were spent in Portugal with family and friends. I believe that these experiences contributed to who I am today. As a child and early adolescent I took ballet, jazz, tap, gymnastics, piano lessons and I love music. I have 2 sisters, 4 nieces and a nephew. I own 2 women’s boutiques. We have a great group of friends with small children and we would love for a child to experience the love support we have around us.
We tried to have a family and we made it to our 40-week checkup. We went a doctors appointment and there was no heartbeat. That day we delivered a stillborn baby boy named Sebastian (Sebbie). It was such a somber moment in our lives. We had everything prepared, waiting for him to bless us with his life. Toys, a crib, endless amount of clothes and the love and support of our family and friends but unfortunately, we had to come home from the hospital with no child. We tried in vitro 2 times after that and were unsuccessful and I am no longer willing to carry for emotional reasons. We have been signed up with the foster care system for sometime now and we are only looking for legally free children. There is a very long wait for a child in this scenario. We have looked into adoption agencies, surrogacy... And we have decided to go the private adoption route.
We have a private adoption lawyer in place and our home study was completed through both a private agency as well as through the
foster care system for legally free children. All we need now is to find an expecting mother/birth mother or someone who has any children under the age of 3 that want to place their child with a loving family
(young siblings will also be welcomed).
We hope our story resonates with you and that we are the right fit for your child.
We both come from a close knit family and we were raised with lots of love around us. We have a loving group of friends with children that enjoy gathering with us on weekends, holidays and getaways.
The bedroom (s) will be converted to fit his or her age and needs
Lots of grass to run around and play on
