Matt & Barry

Hoping to Adopt (New York)

Letter

We're ready to be completely committed parents


Lovable Professionals Hope To Adopt 1st Baby.


We love to travel and plan to do a lot of traveling as a family. Here we are on a Christmas cruise to the Bahamas.
We'll give your baby a life filled with music, security, education, travel, fun, lots of extended family & unconditional love. We're ready to be completely committed parents Luck must have been on our side when the two of us met, as we clicked with one another right away; in 3 days, we went from a text conversation to a phone conversation, and then to a first date! Right off the bat, we learned about each other’s interest to be in a committed relationship with traditional family values. Early on in our relationship, we knew that this was something special, sharing each other with our extended families after only a few weeks! Three years after we met, we got married with our family by our side, and then about 3 years after that we began the adoption process in earnest.
About Us!

We love hanging out with our pals Mickey & Goofy!
We're huge Disney World fans We love to travel, and we visit Disney World 2-3 times per year. We are owners in the Disney Vacation Club timeshare program, which allows us to visit year after year, and we cannot wait to bring your child to Disney. Matt loves to cook, which means Barry has become very skilled in cleaning up the kitchen. We love our time at home, sports games, love to spend time with family, go to the movies, binge-watch a series on Netflix, and find new restaurants. We enjoy going to community events, festivals, and museums, having people over for a dinner party, or just spending time with family and friends. Education is very important to us and feel that a good education can open many doors to opportunities. We commit to providing and supporting your child’s education and we both have Meet Matthew I am not the type to sit around and do nothing. I am an extremely social and active person and like to spend time with friends and family. I belong to many community and civic organizations. One of my passions is to help make a difference in this world. I enjoy traveling, cooking, and going to the movies and Broadway musicals. I also love to just get in my car and drive. Family is super important to me. I grew up in a close family that always did things together. Even to this day, we see our families often. Meet Barry My zest and passion for life tend to enter a room long before I do! I strongly believe in trying to make the most out of life, whether that means traveling, watching a movie, or participating in a community event. I care deeply about the welfare of others and love to participate in social justice work to affect positive change in the world. Giving 1000% to everything that I do is a fact that I pride myself on, and friends comment to me on how much they appreciate all that thought and effort! I love to laugh, but my sense of humor can definitely use some work; my “dad jokes” often result in lots of eye rolling and shaking of heads. Still, the levity that I bring to a room is often appreciated even if they say otherwise.
Our Extended Family Is Very Important To Us

Should you pick us, your child would have cousins, grandparents, and a great-grandmother close by.


Our Niece Mia, Cousin Sawyer and Nephew Ryan would love another cousin to Play with!
Our careers are established so now we can be very involved parents Both of us are lucky to work in fields that we love: Matt is a very successful Executive and Barry runs successful educational programming. Fortunately, both of employers value the importance of family and have included us in their family weddings! Our Extended Family Is Very Important To Us When we got married, both sides of our family sat together in the ceremony. It was a deliberate attempt on our part to ensure that we showed our loved ones our combined family! Sadly, Matt’s mother passed away before the two of us met, but his dad is a large part of lives and we see him regularly! At our wedding we decided to honor Matt’s mother by modernizing the flowers and color scheme of Matt’s parents wedding which took place 36 years before our wedding. Matt’s mother loved Yellow roses. Even our Niece Mia who is named after Matt’s mother Marilyn was wearing a yellow dress. We also wanted to honor all of our other family members who were not able to be at our special day. We had a beautiful memory table which included pictures of our parents, grandparents and siblings wedding photo’s. Matt’s sister, her husband, and our niece and nephew live about 30 minutes away and we see them often. Barry’s parents, his grandmother, his sister, her husband, and their new baby all live about 30 minutes too, and we get together with them, usually for dinner and to watch a big sports event on TV! Should you pick us, your child would have cousins, grandparents, and a great-grandmother close by. And then there are our close friends, whom we regard as family, like Matt’s work mentor and Barry’s former colleague, whom we try to see as often as possible. There aren’t enough chairs in the world when we have everyone come over! Our Fur Babies Both of us grew up in homes with pets, and believe strongly that they add love to our lives. Milo & Zorro were originally rescued 10 and 1 years ago, respectively, from a local shelter. They are great with children, as our niece and nephew, Mia and Ryan, come over to visit often. Milo loves to rub against your socks and can often be found on top of the refrigerator or kitchen counter or stuck in a closet somewhere! Our Home We live in a family neighborhood​ in the northeast corner of Queens, a safe area of New York City. In anticipation of our adoption, we have a spacious home that has lots of windows, plenty of sunlight, water views of the Long Island Sound, and brand new kitchen appliances. We have all the creature comforts of home—computer workstation, TVs, a comfortable couch, pictures, a baby nursery and more! We live in a great neighborhood with excellent schools, lots of racial diversity, parks, a library, community organizations, and restaurants. Even though it’s a major urban city, it feels very much like suburbia!
Devoting Our Life To Your Child

We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to learn about us and consider us the blessed couple to raise your child.


We will love your child to Infinity & Beyond!
Devoting Our Life To Your Child Both of us believe very strongly that growing up with unconditional love is key, and we plan to give your child an endless amount of it! We also believe in family stability and security, and we commit to providing that for your child as well as great community, faith, and educational opportunities. We would love to have an open adoption with you if you would like that. We hold you and your values in the highest regard; we want to ensure that your child has ample opportunity to have a relationship with you and your family to the extent you are comfortable. Thank You We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to learn about us and consider us the blessed couple to raise your child. Being parents and having a family is a dream for us, and your faith and belief in us will help to make that a reality. We cannot begin to process what it must take for you to create an adoption plan, but being your partners in this journey is something that we look forward to with great anticipation. We look forward to getting to know you. Please reach out to us anytime. Love, Matt and Barry
