Seher & Harris

We are Seher (pronounced "Sa-hair") & Harris. We have been together since 2006, and are excited and grateful to be starting a family through adoption. We look forward to providing a loving, safe, stable, and fun home and environment for our child, and to giving them the support and resources they need to thrive. We believe our most important job as parents will be to help our child discover what the most fulfilling life is for them, and then supporting them at each step along the way in living that life - in finding whatever happiness and success means for them, in whatever identities they hold sacred, and with whomever they love and are loved by.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to read about me and my family as you consider the possibility of making an adoption plan for your child. I am an American who grew up in Europe, in a number of different countries. I came back to the United States while I was in high school, then I went to college in New Hampshire and graduate school in New York. I've been working in nonprofit organizations in New York ever since. I have a house in a quiet neighborhood with good schools, across from a conservation area.

Erjia & Jeremiah

Salutations! We're Erjia and Jeremiah, thanks for reading our profile. We applaud you, these efforts you're making and the thoughts that you're thinking and we know not all of them are very easy. We appreciate them. We appreciate you and your openness and, if you're wondering, yes, we do come fully equipped with teddy bears. We have pretty diverse backgrounds: Erjia teaches college and Jeremiah writes for children. Erjia grew up in a city of 8.5 million people in China and Jeremiah grew up on 200 acres of farm and forest in Indiana. Jeremiah is pretty handy with hammer and nails or a baking sheet and Erjia is bilingual. So, between the two of us, we feel like we can offer a child a happily broad and interesting experience in the world.

Reshma

Reshma

Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me. As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a mom. I've also always known that I am capable of loving a child that didn't come through me. I consider adoption a special and unique way to become a parent. After 15 years of establishing myself as a professional working in education, I'm ready to devote myself to motherhood.  When my baby arrives, I will take a few months off and my work is such that I can work from home as needed. I also have a whole village of family members and friends who are ready to support my child and me.

We are Rebekah and Evan and we are honored to be considered by you in helping us grow our family. We've been on the family growing journey for several years and can't wait to share our lives with a child. We have so much love to give as do our extended families. We're so excited to watch our child grow into their own identity and shower them with everything we have to offer. We are surrounded by love from our big families, close friends and everyone is very excited to welcome a child into our lives. We've been together since 2008 when Evan was looking for musicians to join a band he was forming (Rebekah is also a musician and plays frequently). A band was formed as was a marriage-to-be. Aside from a shared love of music, Evan is an artist (but has an additional career he loves) and Rebekah is a seamstress and product designer.

These beliefs keep us committed to each other and to our family.

We have so much love to give, a cozy colorful home to live in, a big community of friends and family to help nurture, and lots of creativity to share. We are an artist and a musician who love to spend time in nature, work on our respective arts, and enjoy meals with friends. We love to travel and spend time in new places.
