"I highly recommend this family for adoption. Genna & Danny are both ideal parents. They are loving, empathetic & patient. They both have always put family first and I know they would do whatever is necessary to make their child feel safe & loved. They will create a safe, loving & fun environment for their child, and I know that their extended family would also welcome this child in with open arms. Genna is kind, thoughtful & generous. She is very personable and has a strong maternal instinct. She is also very patient, which I know is critical for any new parent. Danny is hard working, caring & fun to be around. He is great at problem solving. He has an ease around children that makes it clear that he will be a great father. "

"I have known Genna for almost 25 years, and have known Danny since they started dating about 10 years ago. They are the most wonderful couple (incredibly kind, caring, empathetic and smart) and I can genuinely say that any child would be extremely lucky to join their family, and that I trust them implicitly with my own children (a 5 year old boy and 1 year old girl). Genna and I were childhood friends who have stayed close throughout every stage of life since then – college, young adulthood, and now parenthood. It is hard to summarize in a short paragraph all of the reasons why Genna and Danny will be incredible parents, but I think at the core of who they are is that they are thoughtful, intelligent, decision makers and are in a true partnership with one another. They take time to talk things out and think them through, take into account each other’s feelings, and calmly assess all of their options. Their love and respect for one another has created a truly happy home and has helped them grow together over the years, whether it be decisions on their careers, moving, and now expanding their family. My children LOVE to be around Genna and Danny – they are always so warm and welcoming and they just have the type of personality that children are drawn to. It has been a joy to watch Genna and Danny care for our children – but I can’t wait for them to experience being parents themselves! Lastly, to know Genna and Danny is to know their wonderful families. Genna’s relationships with her parents and brothers are some of the closest relationships I have seen people have, and I have enviously joked over the years that “I wish I was a part of the family.” I am 100% confident that Genna & Danny will create this same loving, fun and respectful environment for the next generation of their own family, and that in the years to come, their children will feel blessed to be part of it.

"My husband Dudley and I have been friends with Genna for 16 years, since we were all freshmen at the University of Richmond. She’s always been responsible, driven, and kind. We met Danny soon after they started dating about 10 years ago. We loved him instantly and could see that he and Genna were extremely well suited for each other. They are similar in ways big and small, and most importantly, they have the same values. They’re fun and funny; thoughtful and reliable; serious but don’t take themselves too seriously; fiercely loyal. When Genna and Danny were married and moved to New York, we saw them for dinner every week, and we had the good fortune of getting to know them better as individuals and as a pair. They took great care in maintaining their relationships with family and with friends and were active members of their Brooklyn community. And before any of us were thinking about having kids, they spoke excitedly about adoption as something they’d always wanted. We’ve both since moved out of Brooklyn but make a point of getting together with Genna and Danny as often as we can, whether at their beautiful new home in Connecticut, or at our place in New Jersey. Dudley and I are so excited for Genna and Danny to move into this new chapter of their lives and have no doubt that they will be excellent parents. They are extremely focused and have a clear sense of what they want in life, which will provide a great deal of stability for a child. They are nurturing, loving, and fun, and are building a loving, compassionate, joyful life. We wholeheartedly recommend Genna and Danny for adoption. They are two of the finest people we know, with a solid set of values and good heads on their shoulders. Any child will be lucky to have them as their parents. "
