We met in 2014 in NYC, and it truly was love at first sight. We closed down the bar on our first date after talking for five hours, and we immediately knew that this was something special. We couldn’t stop seeing each other – we think we had four dates in the first week we met – and we haven’t stopped ever since. We have known from the very beginning that we wanted to start a family, and that is why we are here today.
Hi there! I was born in 1986 to two young people who realized they were too young to care for a child. They created an adoption plan for me before I was born, and at 3-days-old, I went home with the most amazing parents anyone could ask for – who are still married after almost 40 years!
“What I love most about Eric is his drive – anything that he sets his mind on, he accomplishes. I also love how appreciative he is of his parents, and how attentive he is to them as they get older. He is going to instill empathy and the importance of family into our child.” – David
Nice to meet you! I’m David. I grew up in South Florida. I’m the youngest of four children in a blended family. My parents divorced when I was very young and before my mom remarried, I spent most of my life as the child of a single mother. It taught me that “parents” come in many forms – moms, dads, aunts, grandparents – and that love is what matters most. It also taught me the importance of persistence as I watched my mother rebuild a life for me and my sister from nothing. I now have the opportunity to give a child what I didn’t have until much later in my life – the equal love of two responsible, committed parents.
“ My favorite thing about David is his fierce independence. He knows who he is and he doesn’t let anything else change that. On top of that, he is incredibly loving, empathetic, loyal, and dedicated. He is going to be an inspirational father.” – Eric
After living in the city for many years, we recently bought a home where we wanted to plant roots for the long-term. We bought our dream home in the summer of 2019 and completed renovations to make it uniquely ours. We live on a beautiful, tree- lined street, and our house is at the very end of the cul-de-sac.
