Diana & Terrence

Coverpage 5

We are Terrence & Diana. We met in 2012, at our local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in the East Harlem area of New York City. We both value family very much and talked about children from the very beginning of our relationship. After dating and getting married we began our journey on the road to parenthood, where we’ve had many twists and disappointing turns, but we are thrilled to have the opportunity to start our family through adoption. We live in the Harlem area of Manhattan, and are right in the heart of the sites, sounds and culture that NYC has to offer. Diana’s family lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and are visited several times a week. Terrence’s family is spread throughout Trinidad & Tobago, New York, Pennsylvania and Atlanta, Georgia; where we are in close contact with them by phone and annual road trips. Both of our friends and family have been very excited and supportive. Our child will be the first grandchild for Diana’s parents.

Our Lives

Diana is forever the artist and people-person. Terrence loves video games and is a movie trivia fan. We love hanging out with our friends and going to movies. We also enjoy going to barbecues/picnics and taking road trips. Diana herself has driven through all 48 of the continental United States. Terrence spends a great deal of time baking delicious cookies that friends and family are always sampling. If you do decide to give us the honor and opportunity to raise your child, we will spend our lives providing a loving and stable environment filled with family and friends. We will also make sure that your child knows about the selfless sacrifice that you made and how grateful we are for your brave choice.

Our Family

Ralph & Patricia (Diana’s parents), live in New York City. While Diana’s younger sister Elizabeth lives with her partner Johnathan in Cambridge, MA. Terrence has nieces in Pennsylvania who visit regularly and cousins in Atlanta, Queens, and Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies. Our very close friends Jude & Lavern moved to the Houston area of Texas with their two children- Javen and Leah. We take regular road trips to visit them. Some of our other very close friends include Dan, Yamillette & their daughter Alexandra who live near us in New York City.
