Hello! We are Stefanie, Jason and Christian and we are hoping to grow our family through the blessing of adoption. We would like to thank you for visiting our page and taking the time to look at our family. We know in our hearts that adopting a baby (or two) would be our dream come true. We believe that no matter how a child enters our lives, they are a blessing and we plan to do our absolute best to provide them with a safe, loving and nurturing family.
One of our first adventures together was bike riding up Mohonk Mountain in New Paltz, NY. We just started dating a few months prior and everything was so new and exciting. Stefanie was nervous because the mountain is pretty high but Jason kept saying "we're almost there," and he got us all the way to the top! It was a hot day in the end of June, and although Stefanie felt tired, she couldn't let Jay know. We were determined to keep on. When we finally reached the top, it was nice to relax and enjoy the view while having lunch!
Even after Stefanie saying she wouldn't be able to bike ride this mountain again, we returned back a year later for another adventure.
In April 2016 we were able to take a short but relaxing trip down to St. Pete's Beach in Florida. We returned back in 2018 with Christian, Stefanie's sister Michele, husband TJ and their daughters Michaela & Lindsey. We stayed at the perfect family friendly resort called Tradewinds! They have fun day time activities, pool games, giant slides and paddle boats. Our favorite part of the trip was making smores at night and movie night in the pool.
More About Us...
New York City
Living on Long Island, gives us the opportunity to take trips into New York City often. We can take a short train ride into the city to see a show, have dinner, shop or sight see. We are looking forward to bringing Christian on his first train ride into the city during the Christmas season to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center.
Annual Family Picnic
Each summer, Stefanie helps organize a family picnic at a local park. It has become a great tradition for all the aunts, uncles, cousins and kids! We have a great day filled with BBQ, relay races, softball, bocci games, and water balloons. We always make sure there's a special visit from the Ice Cream Man! We love creating these memories for the whole family.
We feel truly blessed to have our family traditions when celebrating the Holidays. Whether its Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fourth of July or New Years, you could find us with our extended family sharing meals, exchanging gifts, and creating memories.
We feel so grateful to share these special days with Christian & our other children in the future. We look forward to watching Christian share the holidays with his sibling(s) one day just as we did with our siblings.
