Adoption in Our Lives
A Stroll Along Boston Harbor

Both of us were raised in blended families, Angel with a stepfather and Cory with an adopted father. Cory was primarily raised by his biological mom and her husband, who adopted him at age 12. His father had an older daughter who Cory considers his sister, and they remain close today. Angel was also raised by a stepfather and has a younger brother and two younger (twin) sisters from her parent's second marriage.

The saying of "blood is thicker than water" was completely irrelevant and patently untrue for both of us growing up. We had half and step siblings that we never considered anything other than our full brothers and sisters, as well as "aunts" and "uncles" biological and otherwise.

Growing up with a blended family helped us appreciate diversity, learn new cultures, adopt new traditions, and expanded our circle of family and friends.

Our Daughter, Elle
Elle

We are blessed with a beautiful daughter, Elle Autumn. Elle is a miracle baby, as she was born with a number of medical challenges and continues to amaze us as she reaches developmental milestones. We live to hear her laugh and see her smile, work hard to provide her with the resources she needs to excel, and continually evolve our parenting style to ensure we balance love and support with responsibility and accountability. Elle is a technology wiz, but she also loves outdoors including the beach, pool, and the neighborhood playground. She is an excellent traveler, and already has several stamps in her passport book! Although she is an active little girl, she also enjoys a quiet evening on the front porch listening to the waves with Mom and Dad.
