Hi! We are Matthew and Melanie from the NYC area.


Borrowing stacks of books from the library, making holiday arts and crafts, spending summer weekends at great grandma’s beach cottage, building Lego cities with cousins, holding pizza and a movie Friday nights, watching Saturday morning cartoons over pancakes, and taking Sunday strolls to church…

This is the life into which we would be greatly honored to bring your child, if you choose us, but beyond all of those things, what we have to offer most of all is unconditional love.


About US

By chance, our start as a couple involved the movie Rocky. Learn more about that, and about how we fell in love and became one another’s best friend over six years of dating, which culminated in our marriage.



Our family has been by our side every step of the way, holding our hands and our hearts in their own. They look forward with enthusiasm to reading books to our adopted child, to sharing family stories, to making ice cream sundaes, to taking lots of photos, and so much more. We invite you to discover our family.
