Thank you so much for taking the time to consider our profile. Our names are Ari and Gabe. We are so grateful that you would consider us as part of your adoption plan.
We live in Brooklyn, New York with our daughter Zuriel.
We met in 2005 when Gabe was in law school in New York City and Ari was visiting from California. Our relationship had its share of twists and turns, but in 2011 we decided to really go for it, and Ari moved to New York. In 2014 we adopted Zuriel, and started our family, which has been the most incredible, joyful, and humbling experience in our lives. With every new day, we fall more and more in love with our daughter.
We live in a family-friendly, multicultural neighborhood. There’s a park across the street and lots of friends nearby.
We can’t wait to expand our family. We want to raise a child who feels unconditionally loved, who knows that they are capable of being anything they want to be, and who can be proud of every part of who they are and of their history.
Thank you again for taking the time to learn about us.
