Our Wedding Day - We've been married since 2017

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

Astoria, New York has SO many wonderful outdoor spaces to explore (playgrounds, parks, walks by the river). AND there are amazing restaurants to get food from anywhere in the world.

We value kindness, openness, honesty, and empathy through all aspects of our lives. Love is Love.

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

PIZZA! Growing up in New York, I got to try some of the best pizza in-the-world. My family is Italian and there was never a week that went by without a large pizza pie. Plus the toppings are endless!

John

Our friends have been super supportive and are extremely excited to be on our journey to become Dads

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

...home-cooked meals. I loooove cooking with inspiration from our travels, but nothing comes close to my mom's cooking.

Andrew

My philosophy on parenting is...

..to fill our child's life with diversity, love and inclusion - all the things we stand for as a family.

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

Above all else - healthy, happy, and fulfilled.

Andrew

My philosophy on parenting is...

We want our child to grow up feeling supported and with the understanding that they can be whoever they want to be - and we will be there to love and support them no matter what.

Andrew

Favorite season and why?

Christmas is my favorite holiday, but summer will always be my favorite season! Nothing is better than a beach day with ice cream for the ride home.

John

We are the best choice because…

...we have so much love to give! We are ready to become Dads & will provide our future little one(s) with a wonderful home, a life filled with supportive family + friends, & world-wide adventures!

Andrew

My favorite place in the World is...

The beach! Any beach! Andrew and I have visited beaches all over the world with more to come. Can't wait to build sandcastles with our future little one(s). Our top 3: Brazil, Panama, and Thailand

John

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

A sailboat - for sure! While I never turn down a road trip, I absolutely love being by the water. Growing up on the east coast, we were always near the ocean or lakes.

John

In five years, our relationship with you will...

We realize that life is unpredictable and will be full of pleasant surprises as well as unexpected challenges. We promise to listen and learn from you during this journey, keeping our child in focus.
