Hello! We’re Andy and Andre. Although we have not met yet, we appreciate your strength, courage, and love for your baby.

Alan & Sammy
Hello! Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to introduce ourselves! We are Sammy and Alan. We met back in 2003 and it was an instant connection as we share a lot in common not just in interests but in what is important to us. We got our first apartment in 2005 together, our first home in 2013 and on June 16, 2017, we celebrated our love together in what was the best day of our lives. One of the shared interests and what we find important to us is family. We treasure our time and experiences with our family and are beyond excited to have the opportunity to become parents.

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.

Matthew & James
Hi, we’re James and Matthew. James is a musician, and Matthew is a high school teacher. We have been together for almost 20 years, and we are excited to share our love with a child. James can’t wait to read books with lots of funny voices to a little person. Matthew is excited to sing songs and cook together. Or maybe we can just walk to the playground and swing on the swings. We want to show our child as much of the world as we can. We want to help them learn who they are and what they have to offer the world.
Hello! How do I even come close to expressing the appreciation and admiration I have for you for considering an adoption plan for your child. I wholeheartedly respect your decision and I’m humbled by your love for your baby. My journey to motherhood has been a long road, but one I’m 100% committed too. Adoption has always been a part of my family and I knew that I would be forming my own family one day and that adoption would be a part of that journey.

Nice to “meet” you! We are a loving couple excited to build our family through adoption. We met a few years ago as friends, fell in love, and then married in 2019.

We gather our friends and loved ones as often as possible to cook, eat, play games, sing songs, dance, and enjoy the present moment. We share a passion for travel and look forward to showing a child the world, and seeing it anew through his or her eyes. As a lesbian couple, we know that love and family take many forms and include a wide network of people. This is what brought us to adoption.
