A Letter from Dave & Cristy

Thanks for taking a moment to learn more about us! We have had many adventures in life, and we are thrilled to embark on this next adventure of parenthood together! Sharing life’s special moments with a son or daughter is something we have always wanted, and we are excited to be able to reach that dream through adoption.

We look forward to walking this road with you, as we learn more about each other and grow in our relationship with each other!

About Us

We are a fun, active couple who have built a warm, stable, nurturing home here in New Jersey. We have been best friends and partners in life for over nine years. Together we’ve cultivated a loving marriage, enriched by family, friends, and laughter.

Although we are unable to have children of our own, we are thrilled at the chance to provide a loving, nurturing home to a child through adoption. Afternoons at the park, quality time spent at home, and travel to new vacation destinations are all things that we enjoy together. We are excited to embark on every family adventure with our child!

About Cristy

Cristy has the biggest heart of any person I have ever known. She’s devoted the past 20 years to her first love: early childhood education. She’s been a successful long-term nanny for two families and now works as the Lead Infant Teacher at one of the top child care centers. In her free time, she can be found as an active participant in her church, playing one of many musical instruments, or planning her next delicious recipe!

Whether it’s board games with friends, arts and crafts, or enjoying a quiet nature walk – Cristy has a true gift for finding and creating joy in moments big and small. She is a gardening enthusiast, and I know that she is excited to share her green thumb with our child. Should our child wish to learn a musical instrument, they will have an amazing teacher. Cristy will be an incredible mother.

About Dave

Dave is my ultimate cheerleader and supporter. He is dependable, loving in big and small ways, and has a great sense of humor! Dave has a love for sports that he shares with our niece and nephew, and he can always be found playing with them at family hangouts.

Dave is a Senior Presales Manager and enjoys his work mentoring individuals early in their IT careers. He also loves to coach ASA softball and has been enjoying this hobby for over 12 years!

Dave takes pride in being a provider and is going to make a wonderful dad! I am so excited to see him share all of his laughter and love, and I know he is excited to share his love of sports with our child- particularly how to play softball!

Our Home in New Jersey

We live in a bright and cheery end unit townhouse on a quiet cul-de-sac. Our home has over 2100 square feet with 3 bedrooms, a living room and a family room with a fireplace. Our family-friendly neighborhood is close to many parks, playgrounds, and ballparks. We have a lovely fenced-in back yard with room to play and relax, and a big open grassy area to the right of our house-big enough for kickball, soccer, or a game of tag! Our community is vibrant, with excellent schools, museums, and arts centers nearby.

Our Family

We have a very close-knit family. Cristy has one sister who has two kids and Dave has one sister who was adopted at birth. That experience gave us and our family a deep appreciation for the positive things that come from open adoption. Both of our families are extremely supportive and excited about us adopting!

We often have family over for board game nights, movie nights and barbecues in the backyard. We host for the holidays every year and enjoy several family traditions: Christmas Pollyanna, Easter egg dyeing, pumpkin carving, local Christmas tree lighting, baking cinnamon rolls on Thanksgiving morning, and many more!

Our Promise

Our promise to you is to always keep your child’s best interests in the forefront. We will give your child the tools, support, and guidance needed to succeed in life, while also allowing them the freedom to choose their path. We promise to share all aspects of our interests, faith, and community with your child and help guide them to be confident in their culture and their ancestry.  We look forward to sharing our values with your child and sharing letters pictures and visits as they grow!

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

Cristy has been surrounded by music since she was 3 years old, singing in the church children's choir! Since then, she's cultivated a love of all styles of music, and enjoys singing as well as playing several instruments including the violin, piano, drums, and guitar! Cristy also really enjoys being in the kitchen, cooking and baking. When family and friends come by, she loves to prepare everything from the food to the decorations and music!

Dave's interests vary widely and reflect a curious mind and diverse heritage. At times he can be found rooting for his favorite teams, planning his latest BBQ recipe, or visiting a local museum. Other times he'll be reading up on the latest technology, enjoying his love of classic films, or planning their next vacation getaway. Dave is always excited to pursue new experiences, and has a deep appreciation for all of the wonders and joys in life.

Cristy and Dave entertain family and friends often. Keeping close family ties is very important to them, and they have traditions of spending birthdays, holidays, and vacations with their family.
