We're Andrew & John!
It's so nice to meet you!
...we are more than ready for this next chapter in our life!
Hi! We're Andrew and John and we are so excited to be on the journey to parenthood through adoption. We want to thank you for taking the time to read this note - we are delighted about the possibility of getting to know you more. A little bit about us... we have been together for 10 years and have created incredible memories together over the years. We have been living and working in NYC for almost 10 years now, and we love to travel and explore new places, we are surrounded by loving and supportive family members and friends who we spend most of our time with. We enjoy the outdoors, and share a passion for traveling, cooking & baking, and anything to do with music & movies. We have always talked about having children and starting a family and we are more than ready for this next chapter in our life!

A little bit more about Andrew & John
...we're really looking forward to seeing our little one's eyes light up when they see our home transform during any holiday
A little bit more about Andrew... One of Andrew's many talents is that he is an excellent chef! You can always find Andrew cooking something new and exciting in the kitchen. Andrew loves preparing elaborate meals as a way to celebrate milestones. Andrew also has a background in marketing, and brings his creativity into our home when it comes to decorating for the holidays! There isn't a "tablescape", flower arrangement, or balloon collage that Andrew can't do! We're really looking forward to seeing our little one's eyes light up when they see our home transform during any holiday or birthday celebration. Andrew is a combination of Middle Eastern (Assyrian), French, and Western European. A little bit more about John...On the weekends you can most likely find John spending time outside, John LOVES the outdoors! John grew up being on swim teams and his summers were filled either being by the pool, lake, or the beach. John can't wait to teach our little one how to swim early on and pack the beach bag for a day by the ocean! John also loves movies and pop culture, he's been interested in movies since he was a kid, and you may just catch him quoting a movie throughout the day. Also what's a move night without a fun dessert, John loves baking something sweet for a fun snack. John's background is primarily Italian.

Our Family & Friends
...we will always honor and recognize you as "their" one and only birth mother
A little bit more about our families & friends...We are both super close to our families and can’t wait for a little one to meet their cousins. We also have so many close friends who will welcome this new addition to our family with open arms. Our friends are extremely diverse who have family roots from all over the world (Trinidad, Dominican Republic, Spain, Philippines, Australia, China, Israel - and beyond). As two men, we are fortunate to be surrounded by many incredible women in our lives, from our mothers, to our sisters, cousins, best girlfriends, but we will always honor and recognize you as "their" one and only birth mother. We are very aware that as our child grows up they will have questions about their race, their heritage, and their roots. Our plan is to be prepared to answer these questions very early on which is why we are excited about an open adoption. Having an open adoption plan allows the answers to these questions to be spoken about very early on. Our goal would be to promote an environment where our child could understand, embrace, and be proud of where their biological roots come from.

We are so thankful to you for taking the time to get to know us a bit more. We understand that this is a journey for you as well. We want you to know that we will provide a household filled with love, support, care and fun. This child will be the center of our lives. We welcome and hope for openness with you as their birth mother and we would be honored to have a chance to connect with you. We would love and welcome the opportunity to speak with you to answer any questions you might have. Wishing you all our best, positivity, and support Andrew & John
