A Letter from Frank & Lisa
We are looking forward to sharing a glimpse into our lives with you! We love experiencing every season in Pennsylvania, going to the beach and visiting at least one new city/attraction a year. It is important to us to experience different parts of the country and we are excited to include your child in those experiences as well. We are stable and have a large, warm and loving Christian family. We would love to share that warmth with your child through adoption.
We are a down to earth couple that has been together for 9 wonderful years and love spending time with each other and with our daughter, Victoria, whom we adopted through Lifetime. Together, we enjoy attending sporting events, staying active with walks around the neighborhood and squeezing in workouts a few times a week. When we aren’t planning weekend trips, we can be found goofing around in the backyard or concentrating on house-related projects. We are excited to share our passion for fun, sports, traveling to new places and learning about different areas with your child.
Frank is the most wonderful husband I could ever ask for. He is multi-talented and built us a huge backyard deck, a shed and a swing set. Frank is witty, smart, caring and always makes me laugh. He is also the biggest Pittsburgh sports fan I know and is excited to share his passion for sports with your child. He will teach them how to be a respectful winner and a gracious loser in whatever game they play. He looks forward to teaching our children how rewarding it is to try new things and seeing successful results. Frank is also an incredible father and truly enjoys every moment he is with our daughter. Seeing him with Victoria continually has me falling in love with him over and over. She is most certainly a daddy’s girl and he LOVES it. I know he has infinite love to give to your child as well.
Lisa is a sweet and caring woman that I feel lucky to call my wife. She’s passionate, focused, hardworking, kind and always wants to help others. Lisa’s sarcastic humor keeps me on my toes and becoming a mom has truly made her shine. I know she will guide our children to be independent, respectful and accepting of others. I am excited to see her help your child identify their passion(s) and encourage them with support and the tools needed to excel at whatever they want to focus on. She is looking forward to making your child giggle with dance parties in the living room and building forts under the kitchen table. She has so much love to offer your child.
Our daughter, Victoria, is adopted and we have such a wonderful relationship with her birth family. We visit and talk to them regularly and it has been an amazing journey so far. Victoria loves playing with baby dolls and cooking for us with her kitchen set. She has a wonderful imagination and loves to be outside every chance she gets. She loves to settle down with a book and her favorite nursery rhymes before bed.
When it comes to family, Lisa has one younger brother and Frank is the youngest of 5! We love staying close with our families and spend most Sundays having brunch with Frank’s parents and his brother’s family. Frank’s other siblings live out of state so we always have somewhere warm to travel for an impromptu vacation! We also enjoy Saturday dinners with Lisa’s family and love when both families are together for an evening out or a cookout in the backyard.
Frank and Lisa’s parents are thrilled to welcome their next grandchild and Lisa’s mom is excited to spoil another grandchild with trips to the zoo during her weekly babysitting day! Everyone is excited for us to grow our family and to welcome your child into the fun!
Our home is a split entry ranch style home with 3 bedrooms and lots of space and a nicely updated backyard. Your child will have their own bedroom and can design it however they desire. We live on a quiet street in a family friendly neighborhood with lots of children around. There are numerous parks and baseball fields nearby that we enjoy and frequently visit. We both grew up in this school district and are excited to provide our children with the same great education and opportunities that we had.
Our promise is not just words on a page, it comes from our hearts. We promise to love your child, protect your child and provide him or her with every opportunity that we can. We will teach them to spell their name, tie their shoes, swim in a pool and to be kind to others. We will ensure their days are filled with love, laughter, and learning. Your child will always know that you are their birth mother and that we honor and respect you. We look forward to getting to know you and to sharing pictures, letters, and visits to your comfort level.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We are excited to spend winters teaching your child to sled ride, build snowmen, make snow angels and all about football and hockey! In the summer, we look forward to walking the neighborhood, playing in the backyard, going to ball games, and teaching your child how to fish. We enjoy Pittsburgh sports, attending standup comedy shows and spending time with our daughter, friends, and family. We like to stay busy but really appreciate a relaxing weekend at home with a bonfire in the backyard.
Lisa was raised Methodist and Frank was raised Catholic. We married in the Catholic Church and will raise our children Catholic. Faith is an important part of our lives and we have a great respect for God.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love music of all genres and can often be found dancing in the living room or kitchen together. Lisa's favorite music is 90s pop and country with some metal thrown in. Frank lets Lisa be the DJ but is often caught singing Disney tunes to our daughter.
We have one dog named Bazinga, whom we named after a catch phrase in the show, The Big Bang Theory. He's goofy and lovable and excellent with children. We've gotten many compliments on how he interacts with Victoria and our friends' children. We also have three cats named Tom, Jerry and Paige. Tom and Jerry are brothers and are incredibly friendly. Jerry is Victoria's favorite and he will sit for hours letting her pet him (if she would sit that long, of course). Paige is an adorable, tiny white and calico cat that is very shy. We very much love pets and all types of animals! Lisa even used to have two ferrets!
|More about our daughter, Victoria|
We adopted our daughter, Victoria, and have a wonderful open adoption with her birth family, that include pictures, texts, and visits. We took Victoria to visit her birth parents this summer and even got to spend some time with her biological grandmothers. Victoria has an easy going personality, loves to laugh and make others laugh. She truly would be a wonderful big sister and I can't wait for her to share her enthusiasm and unconditional love with a sibling.
|More about our families!|
We were both raised with the same values that we brought into our marriage and those values have kept us strong and laid a great foundation for our family. We look forward to sharing those values with your child.
Lisa’s parents are ecstatic to dote on a second grandchild. Lisa’s mom i enjoying retirement, which allows her to spend more time with her grandchildren. Lisa’s brother wants to be the “cool” uncle that always has candy or a dollar in his pocket for when he visits.
Even though most of Frank's siblings live out of state, we get to see them regularly, which keeps everyone close. It's wonderful that his parents only live 10 minutes from us and Frank’s nieces and nephews are looking forward to adding another youngster to their clan as well! They almost have enough cousins to field an entire baseball game in the backyard!
|We live in the state of...|
We live in Pennsylvania and are close to a big city with lots of places to visit, especially with children. We love living in the suburbs and only being a short drive to museums, stadiums, huge parks and other venues. You can often find us taking in a last minute baseball game or spending the morning at the zoo. It's a wonderful area to raise a family.
