Heather and Michael
" One of the hardest things I have been asked to do is write a recommendation for Heather and Michael. The reason being is that there is so much I want to say and so little space. I met Heather over 20 years ago when I first moved to NYC. Since then we have been inseparable. She may not be my sister in blood but she is my sister in spirit, emotion, friendship and values. 8.5 years ago, I had my son, Augustus, Heather and Michael were there through it all. When he was born they became Uncle Michael and Aunt Heather. My husband and I have so much trust in Heather and Michael that they have watched Augustus overnight since he was a young as 6 months old. We do not have family on the East Coast - they are our family. The unconditional love and support they give, they align with our parenting values, they are creative and interactive with Augustus. Augustus continuously tells us how safe and secure he feels with them when we are gone. As you can imagine, this is such a huge statement from an 8 year old and a feeling of relief and joy for a parent. I cannot think of two more loving, kind, deserving people in the world to be able to be parents. They are the first we would call if we ever needed anything and we trust them completely with our son's well being to be loved, safe and supported should we not be there. "
