Hello! We’re Nicole and Andrea, and we want to thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about our family. We admire your strength, courage and sacrifice in making this decision out of love for your baby. We appreciate that there are many things to consider when making this choice and we hope this letter gives you an understanding about who we are and what our life is like to help you make the decision that is best for you and your baby.
We met in 2008, while watching a local band play in Northern Italy and had a whirlwind romance. Just one week after our first date, we became inseparable, and 9 months later, we were married.
We lived in Italy for nearly three years before relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area for work, and soon became proud homeowners. Together, we enjoy working in our garden, walking local beach paths, and bike riding, but our life changed completely when we welcomed our adopted son, Luca, into our home and hearts. Luca is the light of our lives and we love sharing our everyday activities with him and spending family time together at the zoo, park, and with friends and family.
Andrea has a great job in San Francisco doing computer programming, while Nicole works in Oakland and teaches yoga part-time. Nicole even teaches family yoga where both Andrea and Luca come to class, and we get to spend time together with other families.
