About Us

Our Story

Adam is a Bostonian and spent several years living in Seattle. Emil was raised in Canada (Vancouver) and after a short time in California, he finished high school in New York where his family permanently relocated. We met at our friend Colin’s birthday party and totally hit it off!

We dated long distance for a year before Adam moved to New York. We were together for five years before getting married in a small and beautiful Covid-time wedding.

We live in NYC with our gentle, smart and funny dog, Charlie. She’s a lab/shepherd mix, is great with kids and we’re crazy about her.

Our neighborhood is great. We enjoy taking Charlie on walks and eating our way through all of our local, diverse restaurants. We also love hiking, spending time at the beach, going to the theater, making home cooked meals, and we make a big deal about celebrating birthdays. We don’t care what age you are. Everyone gets balloons, decorations, cake, singing…the works!


We’ve known since early on in our relationship that we wanted children. As a same-sex couple, we have lots of friends with adopted kids who have wonderful experiences. We know that adoption is the right path for us to take and we are ready should you choose us.

We both grew up in families who gave us tremendous love and support and who helped us grow into pretty alright adults. That’s what we’ll provide for your child, should you generously bless us. For us that means we’ll have a fun household full of play, music, celebrations and family activities.

We’ll do that while teaching and emulating the power of being respectful, generous and kind. We’ll also provide your child with opportunities to pursue their interests like music, art, sports, science, or whatever else may come up. We promise to be supportive in helping your child pursue and develop whatever their talents, special interests or passions turn out to be.

We both have very flexible, successful, established careers so now we can be very involved fathers from the very beginning.

Adam works from home most of the week and is an internal consultant and project manager for a large healthcare organization. He’s been doing this work for 7 years. Prior to that he was a practicing physical therapist for 14 years.

Emil has a home based office. His family are all nearby and his mother will be retiring next year so she plans to be with us a lot.

We know that raising children takes a village and we feel lucky to be surrounded by our village of family and friends.

We also live in a diverse neighborhood where so many ethnicities, races and cultural backgrounds are represented and celebrated.

We are excited, of course, to share our own traditions. It’s also important to us to honor the unique background of you and your family, and to let your child know that he or she is loved by so many people!

Our Home

photo of adoptive family's home We rent an amazing two bedroom apartment in New York. It's got plenty of space and has great windows in every room which is very rare in New York! We both love taking care of plants so our place is full of them.
Our apartment is in a safe, family-oriented neighborhood and is part of a larger complex with lots of kids and dogs. Several great schools, a library and fun parks are all just a few blocks away.

Adam Describes Emil

adoptive family photo - Adam Describes Emil Emil is the most fun and creative person I know! He is excellent at keeping our social calendar full. Whether it's seeing music or theater, dancing, meeting our friends for dinner, or making time to play with our nieces Michal, Maya and Josie, we’re never bored. Emil is a talented professional photographer and he pursues this artform independently to make really gorgeous portraits. He also loves music (disco especially!) and even if he won’t admit it, is a great piano player. Lastly, Emil is kind and generous. He has created so many special bonds with his family and friends. I know he is going to be an incredible father!

Emil Describes Adam

adoptive family photo - Emil Describes Adam Adam is the perfect compliment to my extraverted energy. His charm and love come from a deep well of thoughtfulness and contemplation. I always know to turn to him if I ever need help in expressing myself. He will always know exactly what to say. Adam is a phenomenal cook and amazing knitter as well. When he’s not making a new blanket or outfit for our nieces and nephews Thomas, Kevin and Owen, he can be seen tending to our many plants or showering our dog Charlie with endless kisses and cuddles. Adam is also a baby whisperer. Whereas I am the uncle with all the energy to go crazy with, Adam just has to hold a baby once and they fall madly in love with him. Maybe it’s his glorious head of hair, or his magnificent beard, but the babies are obsessed with him!
