We own our own home in Massachusetts with a nice yard, and we also spend a lot time at family houses on the coast of Massachusetts and Maine. In our neighborhood, we enjoy outdoor time with young families and older retirees when the kids play. A few steps from our yard, which is surrounded by conservation land on two sides, are beautiful community gardens and a reservoir with ducks. Our house is also within walking distance of the library and near many excellent public and private schools.
We are fortunate to have our families, cousins, and friends nearby. There is a fun crowd at family parties during the year, and when we all go to the beach there is no shortage of playmates and toys. Our family and friends know about our adoption journey, are very supportive (especially those adopted), and hope a new baby finds us!
