Bella & Andrey

Your child(ren) may not have our eyes or our smile, but they will always have our heart, support & unconditional love.

Hi, we are Bella and Andrey from NYC! We are happily married and have been together for 11 years. We are so humbly grateful to share our story with you, as you make this extraordinary hard and important decision regarding your precious child. We cannot and will not even try to pretend to understand the depth of what you are going through, but your strength, selflessness, grace, courage, and love for your unborn baby inspire us deep into our inner core! Please know, should you choose us as adoptive parents, your child will be loved genuinely and unconditionally with devotion and commitment, as your child will be our greatest blessing in life. We will be more than happy to share any progress, pictures, letters, texts or email updates with you and your loved ones. You are very important to us and we hope you can be an integral part of our and baby’s lives. Our intention is to maintain a healthy relationship that you are comfortable and satisfied with. We will be eternally grateful to you for selecting our family and entrusting us with your child! We will honor you and ensure your child knows how special and brave their mother was, placing them with us out of love and desire to give them a beautiful and fulfilling life. We promise to provide a loving, stable and nurturing home for your child to grow in, to raise them to be respectful, confident and a kind human being.
But, no matter where your journey may lead you, we offer you support, good thoughts and hope you’ll find comfort in knowing that your unconditional love and sacrifice means more than any words could ever express or paintings could ever portray.

Who We Are

We first met back in 2004 at a mutual friend, Barry’s birthday celebration. We spent some time talking throughout the evening but never stayed in touch after. We saw each other in passing a couple of times throughout the years but never long enough to make a connection. However, we never forgot about each other, and in 2008 Andrey reached out to Bella through social media, just to say hello and to catch up; honestly, he wanted to see why he was still thinking about her 4 years later. We chatted for a few months before meeting face to face. And once we did, it was clear to both us that we were meant for one another. We moved in together 3 months later and tied the knot in 2011.
We are not perfect, but rather imperfectly perfect for each other. Somehow fate has brought us together and threw us into a whirlpool of discovery and growth, love and devotion, infertility and pregnancy losses, loss of our beloved pet, grief, disagreements and overcoming hardships. We consider ourselves blessed to have had met each other to experience all the good and the bad, and no matter how hard our road got, we were each other’s rock. And, now we are embarking onto this remarkable journey that is both difficult and exciting, to expand our family through adoption, a chance to love an innocent little one(s) so unconditionally and to give more than we can possibly imagine we could, and not expect anything in return. We are optimistic and adventurous, silly and funny, yet serious and realistic at the same time in our own way.
Our reasons for adoption are not unique or special in any way, like many before us and many other couples just like us have experienced infertility. Pregnancy loss after pregnancy loss, failure after failure to become parents; to start a family we know we really want. We always talked about having at least 3 kids, one biological and two through adoption. We wanted to adopt later in life after our biological kid would go off to college, but life works in mysterious ways. And now, after eight years of infertility, we were thrilled to put that behind us and continue to build our family through adoption! We genuinely want to submerge ourselves into parenthood, to unconditionally love your child/our child, to raise a decent person, to help become worldly, intelligent, kind, independent and self-sufficient member of our society. We just have a lot of LOVE to give! Your child(ren) may not grow under my heart or carry Andrey’s DNA, but they are definitely born into our hearts. They are longed for, wanted, and loved from the start. We are yearning for little ones and beyond ready to be parents.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to learn more about us; even though this is just a glimpse into our life, we hope it gives you an idea of who we are, how dedicated to this process we are, and more importantly how devoted and committed we are to raise a happy, loving, healthy and thriving child. We are so incredibly honored to have your consideration. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
But, no matter where your journey may lead you, we offer you support, good thoughts and hope you’ll find comfort in knowing that your unconditional love and sacrifice means more than any words could ever express or paintings could ever portray.
With love, admiration and respect, Bella & Andrey.

“Parenting is not a competition; We are all on the same side.
The side that loves and supports our children.”

New Children’s Book Series 9/11 Courage and Tributes Aims to Help Teach Kids About Sept. 11, 2001

I know this is a day late, but I still let’s talk about September 11, 2001 - 18 Years since.
      We often ask ourselves how to explain something so horrific to a child? How do you make children understand without ripping their world apart, without taking away the innocence of their perfect world? Would they still see this world as pure and not evil? How do you explain to a child that his grandparent or uncle or aunt or whoever is dying from the effects of September 11? That 9/11 is still claiming more and more innocent and brave souls each day; nearly 10,000 first-responders were at the scene.
      But nevertheless, we need to educate this new generation, talk about it and share the importance of heroism, unity, and fortitude from that day. If you are struggling how to explain to a younger generation, here some suggestions that can educate children and help to start a conversation. These are New Children’s Book Series 9/11 Courage and Tributes Aims to Help Teach Kids About Sept. 11, 2001, by Kristie Kiernan Bouryal.
