We are both lawyers, and in 2008, we met while working as attorneys for the city of Philadelphia, representing victims of crime.  Caroline, who is an only child, grew up in Minnesota, surrounded by many of her cousins.  Her parents, who love her dearly, taught her the value and importance of family.  Jay, who is from a large family and has nine siblings, is dedicated to his family and puts the needs of his family and friends before his own.  We believe we are patient, warm, nurturing, and optimistic people.  We want your baby to feel safe, self-confident, and loved in our home.  Everything we do as parents will be guided by that mission.  We believe we were meant to be parents but haven’t been able to have biological children.
