Happily Married, TV Executive & Private School Director of Admisson Hope to Adopt!

Our Letter to You,
We are so grateful to you. We understand that when you decided to begin the adoption process, you made a compassionate and courageous decision to help a couple who are not able to have children of their own.  We are so thankful that you did so and that you would consider blessing us with the child you are carrying.

You can, of course, learn a bit about us with the information in this profile.  As the words suggest, if you generously choose us, your child will join a family that values diversity, new experiences, learning, and having fun.  These are important parts of us and the life we’ve formed together.

But there is, of course, something far more important than the tangible realities of our home and family.  As you make this monumental decision, please know that your child will be loved. We will love your little girl or little boy unconditionally and always.  And if we do our job as a family properly, your child will never doubt that love.

Our promise to you is this: your child will always be cared for completely and thoughtfully.  We will provide for him or her financially, creatively, intellectually, physically, emotionally, and however else is necessary to ensure that your child feels supported and loved.

Warmly,
Brad, Raj and Leo (our adopted son)

Who We Are

On our first date, we talked about how much we wanted to be fathers. Both of us valued our experiences as older siblings and wanted to expand on that background with a family of our own. That sort of conversation on a first date would have scared off many people, but for us, it was one of the clearest signs that we were a good fit together.

Together, we love children and we are adventurous, goofy, upbeat, and more than a little bit nerdy.  We love to cook, try new restaurants, travel, and host friends for game nights. Brad enjoys baking, reading Russian literature and political blogs, and forcing Raj to watch classic movies.  Raj enjoys eating Brad’s baking, yoga, reading contemporary fiction and pop culture blogs, listening to podcasts, and forcing Brad to watch current TV shows.

We have a beautiful, gregarious, kind and happy 4-year old son, Leo.  We are eternally grateful to Leo’s amazing birth family.

We adopted him from birth, in October 2014. In 2016, the three of us moved from Los Angeles to New York, to be closer to family on the East coast.

Leo has reinforced every motivation we had to be parents.   He calls Raj, “Papa;” and, he calls Brad, “Daddy.” He has brought us so much joy and laughter. We are eager to welcome your child into our family for many reasons, but one of the most pronounced is our confidence that Leo will be a loving, protective, supportive big brother.

Adoption Diary

Asking About Birth Mom - Who Is Not Named Alexa

Lately our adopted son has been asking questions about his birth mom. It started with asking us for her name, then where she lives, then what she looks like and finally can he visit her. As a same sex male couple, the only one at his school we think, we knew these questions would eventually come. His curiosity is probably at an all time high, especially after he asked if we ordered him off of Amazon. We did not.

We told him her name. We told him where she lives. We showed him some pictures of her. He seemed wonderfully delighted to notice her hair being similar to his. We also explained that we would be happy for him to meet her if she was OK with that, and that we would make an effort to facilitate that meeting the next time we travel to her home state (which we travel to frequently to see family and friends).

All of these questions have reminded us of the great adoption experience we had with his birth mom. She was lovely to build a relationship with. We’ve had some less than stellar experiences so far with this 2nd adoption (folks trying to scam us in particular), but remembering Leo’s birth mom gives us hope that the right expectant mom is out there for us.

Maybe that will be you?

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

Brad and Raj (BRaj for short)
