Hi, we are Rob and Stacy.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about us, and the life we would love to offer your child. Rob and his siblings were all adopted by a wonderful family, which has given us a special connection to the adoption process. We understand first hand how precious the gift of adoption is and how much your child will be grateful for your bravery and selflessness. Your choice to make this difficult decision is admirable and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and they will always be told how much you love them too, and that you wanted to secure the best possible future for them.
A mutual friend set us up on a blind date 12 years ago and we hit it off right from the start. Both of us could tell immediately we were right for each other and had found our special someone. We had similar goofy personalities, the same excitement for life, and most importantly the same core values. Our friends and family agreed that we were perfect together. We were married within 14 months of our first date, and have been happy ever since
Drawn to each other by a similar sense of humor and shared zest for life we find living together fun and exciting. We both enjoy outdoor adventures and discovering new activities such as hiking, skiing, scuba diving, horseback riding, and wakeboarding. These excursions will be even more exciting once we have a child to share them with.
Becoming parents has been a dream of ours since the beginning, but we’ve struggled with infertility for the last few years. Of course this has been difficult, but on the positive side, these challenging times have deepened our love and intensified our desire to become parents. We believe there is a greater plan for us to grow our family by adopting and we are both so excited to become a threesome!
Home for us is a small town northwest of Boston, surrounded by apple orchards, local farms, and golf courses. Just a short walk from our house we enjoy picking blueberries at the local farm, taking a bike ride around the lake, hiking in the forest preserve and playing golf. We love that our neighborhood has so much to offer nearby and chose this location for its natural beauty and liveliness. We love to hike and have had the opportunity to experience a number of state parks and their natural beauty throughout the Unites States. In the winter we love to ski together with friends and family and their children. We enjoy the New England seasons and all the different, fun activities each of them brings.
Experiencing different cultures, histories, and treasures is something we fully appreciate and with this in mind we love to travel throughout the country and abroad. Each destination provides an interesting opportunity whether it’s touring the cities and countryside or exploring the oceans beneath, we embrace all we can. We’re excited about taking a child with us on these adventures and showing them how other parts of the world and different cultures live.
I have known and loved Stacy for twelve years and she never stops amazing me. She is the most loving and selfless person I have ever met and I know she will love our child unconditionally and be an amazing mom.
I fell in love with her exceptional zest for life and witty sense of humor, which make her so fun to be around. Of course she is beautiful on the outside, but it’s her inner qualities that make her so attractive to me. She’s intelligent and has tremendous spirit and resilient inner strength that I witnessed first hand through several years of infertility treatments and pregnancy disappointments. During this time Stacy never lost her spirit or her dream of having a family. It’s extremely meaningful to me to know my wife will always be a source of courage and stability by my side during difficult times, and I hope I provide the same for her.
What I love most about Stacy is her sense of adventure and ability to have fun no matter what she is doing. We’ve had some remarkable adventures including the time Stacy got stung on her mouth by a jellyfish and her lips puffed out like a blowfish. Even though she was in a lot of pain, the first thing she said was that she always wanted to have lips like Angelina Jolie. It’s so great that she can find humor in any situation! With Stacy, life is always filled with fun and laughter. She plans fun trips, encouraged us to get scuba diving certifications, and we have a great time skiing and hanging out together. We can’t wait to share fun experiences and adventures as a family.
Stacy spent most of her childhood growing up in England, Spain and France. Moving frequently with her father’s job, she was exposed to many beautiful sites in Europe, attended four different schools, mastered three languages and learned to read by age three. All this moving around required a lot of adjusting, but even as a little girl she was quite amazing and adapted easily. Adventurous from the beginning, she loved to climb trees and go exploring with her friends. Most of all she loved to tag along with her older brother whom she adores.
The security and love of her family made the moves to different countries and starting new schools easier to deal with. She grew to understand the importance of her loving and nurturing family and I can see why she grew up into the terrific person she is today.
Stacy has always had a passion for the arts, especially dance, and theater. This passion led her to attend the Boston Conservatory before attending college, and she has taken on a number of lead roles in community theater performances and musicals. Somehow she even convinced me to take ballroom dance lessons with her, which is something I never thought I would do, but Stacy made it fun and enjoyable even for someone with two left feet. I know Stacy can’t wait to share her love of the arts and sense of adventure with her own child. I can imagine her singing them to sleep or teaching them to dance. Stacy has a wide range of interests and a unique ability to make you feel she enjoys them even more because you are sharing them with her. Despite her talents, Stacy is the most humble person you will ever meet. She has a wonderful ability to always be sensitive to the needs of others and can get you to laugh no matter how badly you might be feeling.
I love watching how absolutely wonderful Stacy is around children. My nieces and cousin’s children adore her and admire their “Aunty Stacy”. Stacy can’t wait to share her love and life with our own child. If we are fortunate enough for you to select us, your child will have a truly loving and amazing woman as their mom.
I can’t believe how lucky I was to meet Rob. He is the most loyal, kind and sweet person I know and I am so excited for him to become a father.
Rob was adopted as a baby with his identical twin brother into a very loving, large, close‐knit Italian family. His sister was adopted several years later. Rob’s Mom and Dad were so grateful to have the opportunity to expand their family through adoption. Rob and his brother and sister were told from the beginning they were adopted and very much loved by their birth parents. I love hearing about his childhood especially when he tells stories about his grandmother who would spend endless hours cooking in the kitchen creating delicious meals. I guess that is why he can eat so much today without gaining weight. So jealous!
One of the things that most attracted me to Rob was that he reminded me of my dad. Both of them are hard workers and very responsible, but also have a sense of adventure, love of life and enjoy many sports. I enjoy doing just about anything with Rob and appreciate the fact that he will try new things and is game for anything, especially when he knows I enjoy it. For example, he’s not a fan of roller coasters but will go on them because he knows I love them so much. To survive, he utilizes an interesting breathing technique where he blows up his cheeks to ensure the g force doesn’t crush his internal organs. Watching him do this is almost as much fun as the roller coaster! Rob can make me smile and laugh no matter what challenges life presents and I love him so much for this. His sense of humor and flexible nature make me a better person.
When family and friends need advice or guidance, Rob is the person they go to. Known to be responsible, bright and full of common sense, his devotion and love for his family is palpable. He is proud and honored to be the Godfather to his sister’s and cousin’s children. When his sister was pregnant with her first child, Rob opened his home to her and helped her take care of his niece ensuring they had everything they needed. I’m proud to be married to a man that prides himself on protecting and loving his entire family. I know he will provide a safe, secure, loving home base for our child to grow up in, which is very important to me.
Children adore Rob. I love watching him play and interact with his nieces and our friends’ children. He can keep them laughing and entertained for hours. All of Rob’s wonderful qualities are going to make him an amazing father.
What We Hope to Offer a Child
We are so excited to become parents and have a baby join our family.
We plan on offering the best life we can by providing a loving and stable home surrounded by a large extended family of grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews as well as many friends. Supporting their dreams and interests, providing necessary funding for a great education and sharing our love of travel are all parts of parenting we’re excited about.
We are excited to share the special moments of discovery through the eyes of our child. We look forward to giggles and snuggles, the changing of diapers, late night feedings, bedtime stories and family fun time. We can’t wait to experience all the firsts and be there every step of the way to teach, guide and love. The most important thing to us is the simple every day moments of family life that we can’t wait to experience with our future child.
Your child will be loved unconditionally by us, and our friends and family who can’t wait to meet them. There will always be laughter, fun, rich experiences and warm memories filling their life.
Thoughts on Adoption
We plan on sharing their birth story with them at an early age just as Rob’s parents did with him, and they will know they were an incredible blessing that came to us through adoption.
They will be told you are a very loving and selfless person who loved them so much and wanted to provide them with the best future possible. We will be happy to share photos and milestone updates with you, and want you to see your child is being well taken care of and surrounded by love.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We would love to talk to you and answer any questions you might have. If you would like to arrange an initial phone call, please call Cindy anytime at A Loving Alternative (800) 556‐5635.
