You can’t spell “gregarious” without Greg! I knew when I met Greg that he would push me to live a big, full life. He has boundless energy for activity, whether it’s exploring something new, or spending time with family and friends. He can pack more life into a day than anyone I know. Greg is social, self-confident and treasures his relationships. He is a “connector” with people, prioritizing staying in touch, and bringing people together. He’s also very intelligent and can absorb new information like a sponge. He is famous among our friends for always knowing where the best new restaurant has opened, where the best tailor is in town, the best place to have a picnic. His friends created a website called “Greggle” where anyone could pose such questions and Greg would respond. In short, Greg is incredibly resourceful and will always have new adventures in store to share with child. Greg values quality time with family and friends, and brings them together literally around the table. While I once considered myself a good cook, Greg has displaced me in the kitchen, which is his domain, and the center of family life. He expresses his love in many ways, but the most tangible is through his incredible cooking. I love watching him thumb through his many cookbooks on Saturday morning, planning new recipes to try over the course of the week and making his shopping list. I can’t wait to watch the weekly meal discussion with our child! With Greg, they will have special memories in the kitchen. I have happily taken-up my new responsibility of cleaning up and washing dishes after each night’s amazing meal. Whereas I used to be fine eating in front of the television, Greg has us sit down at the kitchen table each night to share a meal and stories of our day. This is one of the many ways that he will contribute to building safe, stable and loving space to share our lives together with a child. In many ways, Greg remains a big child himself. He delights in telling corny jokes and puns. He’s a great storyteller and loves dramatically reading books to the children in his life. Being around children, he’s the first to get down on the floor to play games and have fun. For Greg, life is a big stage where anything is possible, and he’s ready to put our child center stage for the adventure.
