Our Story

Hi we are Richard and Cynthia – we have been married 7 years as of this month and just visited the place we got married this past week in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We met over sushi in 2012.  We currently live in Mendham Township and moved here a little over two years ago. We live 3 doors down from where Richard grew up and his family still resides there.  We have one biological son who is 4, Hudson, and have two wonderful puppies Guinness (14) and Marshall (1).

Family Life

We have strong values of being kind to others and providing acts of service. Richard is an EMT for our township, and has served as a fireman for the Brookside Engine Company. Cynthia works as a therapist and spends her days providing emotional support to others daily. As a family, we enjoy exploring our environment, and tend to spend much of our time outdoors either traveling or enjoying our backyard. We were both raised with a Christian background, but do not currently attend any particular church.


Richard has grown up in the community that we currently reside in and has actively been involved in the community for years both as an EMT and fireman. Cynthia recently became involved in the Stigma Free committee for the Township and is currently serving as class parent for Hudson’s pre-k class in the elementary school. As a family we love visiting the Outer Banks of North Carolina and try to visit as often as we can. We also enjoy camping, kayaking, gardening, blacksmithing, and exploring.


We would love to have an open relationship with you.  We are open to sending pictures, letters, videos, attending the annual family picnic, and emailing you.  Our goal is to have your child to feel as much love as he/she can have.

Diversity is important to our family because it a critical component in everyday life. We would like to see our family bring in more diversity overall and will make a great effort to do so in the coming years.  If we are blessed to adopt outside our own race we know we have complete support from all our close family and friends.

Best Wishes

We are a family with too much laugher, too much love, and too many dachshunds!
