Marc & Sherlyne
We are a Haitian American couple who have embarked on a beautiful journey of adoption to welcome your precious child into our lives. We are proud of our Haitian roots and our American upbringing. We will embrace the opportunity to create a loving and supportive environment where your child will thrive in a unique blend of cultures, values and experiences. We are deeply honored that you are considering us to be part of your life journey.
How We Met
We were born and raised in Haiti and immigrated to live in Connecticut when we were adolescents. We met in high school and became good friends, but did not date. We reconnected through social media after college. We started dating when Sherlyne was in Graduate school. We had a courtship lasting about 4 years and Marc proposed on Sherlyne's birthday in 2010. We have been married for 12 years.
We have similar interests, values, and a strong bond forged through a lengthy infertility process. We love and respect each other, share a strong faith as well as a share cultural and heritage. We are committed to supporting each other emotionally and spiritually. We are ready to wrap your little one in the same authentic love and joy we've cultivated in our marriage.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Sherlyne About Marc: Marc will make an amazing father because he is a calm, patient, caring, thoughtful and hardworking man. For example, he successful planned my 40th birthday in Jamaica with a group of our friends. He incorporated all my favorite things from travel, excursions, beach's dinner, and photo shoot. Over the 17 years I've been with Marc, I have learned that he is always thinking of others and eager to serve in community service projects. Marc yearns to learn new things and have a childlike curiosity which I love about him. Marc loves to go the gym, watch documentaries, listening to music and travel. I can't wait to witness him light up a child's life with his fun and joyful personality.
Marc About Sherlyne: I know Sherlyne will make a fantastic mom to our child. Sherlyne is shy, great listener, dependable and resilient and accomplish anything she puts her mind to. She is great with children and a great role model to our niece, nephews and Godchildren and would move mountains to support them. For example, she is always making plans, thinking about activities that are kid's friendly and that adult would enjoy as well. I love that she is very organized which make things much easier for me. She loves to meditate, practice yoga, watch sit-coms, go to movie and travel. I am beyond blessed to have a loving wife like Sherlyne and I long for the day she will get to share her amazing gifts with our child.
Our Professional Lives
Sherlyne is a therapist, she works in an outpatient clinic and owned her private practice part-time. She enjoys her work as it incorporates two of her passion, helping people and providing guidance.

Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a single-family home located in an established residential neighborhood in Connecticut. The family house is on a side street near the center of the town. We live with Sherlyne's parents and her brother. On the main floor is living room and a large open kitchen that was recently renovated. Down the hall, there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom where Sherlyne's parents reside. Upstairs on the second level, there is an apartment containing two bedrooms, one full bathroom, living room and kitchen where we reside. We are currently using the other guest room as Marc's home office, but will convert it as a nursery when appropriate. On the lower level, there is an additional living area of two rooms, a storage area and utilities and access to a car garage which is where Sherlyne's brother reside. The property has a fully fenced backyard to have barbecue and play area for a little one.
Sherlyne's sister and brother in-law live approximately 15 mins drive from where we reside. Her three children come over every Thursdays and Sundays for dinner. Marc's parents live approximately 35 minutes from where we live.
Our Extended Families
Growing up we both spend a lot of time around grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins, and we strive to give a child that same family dynamic.
We love to spend time with each other and our extended families. We love to travel, experience new things, play dominoes, UNO, spade and Taboo.
Both of our parents and siblings live within driving distance. We alternate dinner every other week with each other's in-laws. Our family loves to celebrate birthdays, wedding anniversaries, graduations and other important events.
Every New Year's Day, we celebrate Haitian Independence day. We come together as a family and eat squash soup. Thanksgiving and Christmas is very special to us. We love the big holiday gathering, decorating trees and enjoy hot cocoa by the fire place.
We have lots of support from friends and family who are thrilled to hear our adoption plans and looking forward to being a support system for us.
From Us to You
We hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. It is with heartfelt gratitude and utmost respect that we write you. We want to take this opportunity to share with you the strength and depth of our commitment to each other and your child we hope to welcome into our lives.
Our marriage is built on a foundation of love, trust and unwavering support for one another. We have been blessed with a strong partnership that has grown and evolved over the years. Our love for each other is a constant source of strength, and we believe it will be the same foundation that will guide us as parents.
We have been married for 12 years, and throughout our journey together, we have learned the importance of open and honest communication. We value each other's opinions, dreams, and aspirations and we work together to create a harmonious and loving home. Our commitment to our marriage is unwavering, and we view it as a lifelong commitment to one another and to the family we hope to build.
When it comes to our openness to contact, we want you to know we are open to exploring various forms of communication that you would be comfortable with. We understand the importance of maintaining a connection with a child's biological family should that be your wish. We are open to exchanging emails, sending pictures, letters, and even considering an open adoption that could include future visits. We believe that an open line of communication can provide a child with a greater sense of identity, belonging and understanding.
We want you to know that we deeply respect your role, and we honor the profound bond you share with your child. We understand that adoption is a complex and deeply personal journey for you and your family. We are committed to create an environment where your child will grow up knowing their roots, their personal history, and the love that led you to make the difficult decision of adoption.
If you choose us as the adoptive parents for your child, we promise to provide a loving, nurturing and stable home where they can explore their passions, develop their talents, and grow into the best version of themselves. Your child will be surrounded by a network of family and friends who will embrace them with open arm and hearts.
We understand the weight of the decision you are facing is a difficult one. We acknowledge the strength and courage it takes to consider adoption and the selflessness it requires. We will respect your wishes and desires regarding the level of contact you are comfortable with, and we will always honor and speak of you with love and respect.
Thank you for considering us for your child. We are humbled by the opportunity to embark in this incredible journey together. We believe that with love, understanding, and open communication, we can create a future filled with happiness, growth, and endless possibilities.
With heartfelt appreciation and warmest regards,
Marc & Sherlyne
