Greetings, we are Leigh and Nate,
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our website and for considering us as the potential adoptive parents for your child. We have no doubt that the decision to place your baby for adoption was a difficult one and we want to be as supportive as we can as you make this courageous decision.
We feel such gratitude and joy at that prospect and that you are considering making us parents – our hearts are full of love and we want to share that love.
Nate and Leigh hope to be doting dad and stay-home-mom.
We are a committed married couple and feel ready to become parents and make your child the center of our world.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read our story and again, we very much appreciate your time and consideration.
From our earliest memories, both of us have wanted to be parents. We love children.
Nate on Leigh
Leigh is the most caring, thoughtful and creative person I have ever been blessed to meet. She views everything in the world through an unbelievably artistic lens. Every color is brighter, every image more original, every thought more poetic, when she touches it.
I’m not just a better person because of Leigh, I am new person: someone I can be proud of. Leigh puts family before everything else, and our amazing families will be there to support, solve challenges and encourage this child. She is a wonderful partner to me, Leigh is my yoda and evens me out when I’m stressed. I know Leigh will be a wonderful parent, I can only imagine the strong bond she will have with our child.
Leigh on Nate
Nate is hands down the most incredible man I know. He is thoughtful, selfless, loyal, kind....and brave. I respect Nate immensely and if there is one word I had to use to describe him, I would say, “courageous”. He is the best partner I could ever ask for and I both admire and love him more and more, each and every day. It’s a bit corny I know but Nate makes me feel like all my quirks make sense. His love for me makes me more confident in myself and my abilities.
Nate has so much love to give and, as a parent, will be the greatest teacher and guardian a child could ask for. He will share his knowledge of the world with our child, and raise her/him to not only be intelligent, but charismatic and silly. He doesn’t take himself too seriously and his guidance will have our child skipping down the street with joy in their heart.
I constantly pinch myself to make certain the life I’m living ...is actually happening! Nate is more than I ever hoped for in a partner...and I cannot wait to build a family together, with him.
I am the first of two children born to my parents Lisa and Hal. My younger sister, Maya was born five years later. From the time she was born, Maya and I were inseparable. We were each other’s best friends and playmates and I always considered myself her guardian. As children, we loved to play sports outside and we were always reading.
Growing up surrounded by family, I developed a deep respect for the importance of caring for your loved ones. I have wonderful memories of my childhood...family vacations...being coached in soccer and baseball by my father...holidays with my grandparents. After going to local schools for both elementary and high school education, I then went to a liberal arts college in Connecticut where I majored in History and graduate school in England where I majored in Public Policy. I have always loved being around children and I’ve dreamed of being a father since before I can remember. Now, I want to share that love through being a parent.
After college, I chose to expand my horizons by moving to London, England for graduate school. After that, I returned home to America and enlisted in the military as an Infantry officer. The military taught me values and the importance of teamwork. After serving my time in the military, I decided to move home to New York City. I currently have a successful career in Public Policy. I met my wife Leigh, the love of my life in New York.
Everyday I realize I am blessed to have my family close and to be in a city that Leigh and I love.
I was born to my Mom, Linda and Dad, Luke. My brother Tom is the oldest of us three. My sister Megan came 4 years after me and like Nate and his sister Maya, we all are so close. I grew up in Park Slope, Brooklyn which is one of the five boroughs of New York City. I was fortunate to live very close to my grandparents ( Nanny and Grandpa), many aunts, uncles and cousins.
While Nate was being coached by his father Hal in Brooklyn I was heading to Queens NY to hang out with my grandparents and cousins. Nanny and Grandpa both taught me how to cook homemade pasta and I helped my grandpa prepare and roll the dough for homemade bread. Growing up I spent just about every summer at summer “sleep away” camp in Connecticut, ‘Camp Sloane’ — my absolute favorite place on earth! I always loved being surrounded by nature, sleeping in tents and making lifelong friendships. I enjoyed camp so much that I went every summer, and eventually became a counselor the summer before college. I really hope my kids will someday go to the same camp, although I know Nate is convinced that he won’t want our children away from us for the entire summer.
In high school, I discovered a love for visual arts and photography. When it came time for college, I decided I wanted a different experience and headed to Boulder Colorado. I received a degree in Journalism from The University of Colorado at Boulder. After college, I moved home to Brooklyn. Family is important to me, like Nate. I was fortunate that my mom Linda, dad Luke, grandparents Nanny and Grandpa, aunts, uncles and cousins had the wonderful idea when selecting to settle down in New York! I pursued a career in fashion that I love and own my own business as a freelance fashion stylist, which allows me a flexible schedule.
