Hi! We are Joe and Bruce!
Hello, our names are Joe and Bruce. We want to start by saying thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. If you are reading this, you have a serious decision to make, and we’re grateful to be considered as adoptive parents of your child. It takes a lot of love and courage to consider making an adoption plan for your child. It’s also one of the most selfless things you can provide to a couple like us. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope that our story will be helpful to get to know us a bit better. If you have any questions, comments, or just want to chat, please feel free to reach out.
About Joe (Written by Bruce)
I knew that his unique combination of honesty, empathy, and earnestness would make for a terrific father

Joe is amazing with children and is one of the kindest and most genuine guys I’ve ever known. He doesn’t have a sarcastic bone in his body and means everything he says. In addition to his large extended family, he has an even more extensive network of friends he treats like family. Ever since I met him over a decade ago, I knew that his unique combination of honesty, empathy, and earnestness would make for a terrific father. He’s also one of the most determined people I’ve ever met. When I first met him, he had never run a race in his life. My sisters and I convinced him to join the New Year’s Midnight run in Central Park. While it’s a challenging course for a first race, I could see how much he enjoyed it, and shortly after, he set out to run the New York Marathon, a feat I couldn’t dream of completing. He not only did it but loved the race so much he ended up running many more marathons all over the country, in addition to completing the New York City marathon a second time. It’s pretty rare to find someone who has both grit and determination alongside such a calming presence. Falling in love with Joe was one of the easiest things I’ve done. Everyone that meets him adores his kindness and curiosity. My siblings will sometimes remark that they can’t remember a time when he wasn't a member of the family.
Meet Bruce (Written by Joe)
He is a great listener, very organized, and always has a clear sense of direction
Bruce with our nephew Jack
Bruce loves children and is a bright, responsible, and caring man. He is a great listener, very organized, and always has a clear sense of direction. Bruce enjoys watching movies, listening to podcasts, and exercising. Bruce has a close-knit relationship with his family, and I admire that he loves talking to his four sisters every week. I know Bruce will make a great father by the way he interacts with all of our nieces and nephews (eight in total!). I can’t wait to watch Bruce delve into fatherhood and for us to start traditions and routines of our own as a family of three.
Whatever decision you make, we wish you peace and happiness
