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

We have everything this very diverse city (NYC) has to offer, very close by. Parks, culture, food, art, theater, great schools....

Elizabeth

Our first dance to Beyonce's XO.

We collect heart-shaped rocks and have dozens, but this one takes the cake at almost 30 pounds!

When you argue, what’s it about?

Mostly silly stuff that ends up being rooted in a simple miscommunication.

Reza

Elizabeth fell in love in Thailand.

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

Thriving and happy in a supportive and safe environment surrounded by loved ones.

We are the best choice because…

We are the best choice for whoever chooses us! I don't think of this as a competition, where we're better than others . We have a happy and loving, imperfect home, where all are respected.

Elizabeth

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

Larry Bird ! I'm an avid Celtics fan. (Elizabeth says "that's basketball" for all you non sports folk - she's now a fan as well, though far less enthusiastic).

Reza

My philosophy on parenting is...

Lead with "yes" as much as possible and be ok saying "no" when needed. Oh, and love the heck out of them!

Reza

Dogs or cats?

DOGS!! But I also like cats, and pretty much all animals. I'm kind of a nerd for nature and just about any critter I come across, big or small.

Elizabeth

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

RV! I get a little sea sick and I have a passion for national parks.

Reza

Favorite season and why?

I love early summer for the warmth and fun and early fall for the ascetics. I love boots and sweaters and plaid and leaves and - I'll admit - pumpkin spice:)

Elizabeth

My favorite place in the World is...

Montauk for sure. I have been coming since I was a kid then as an adult, with friends. I brought Elizabeth as our first weekend trip and now it's kind of our place. We visit all throughout the year.

Reza

I hope you are...

Safe and at peace with whatever you are going through right now. I hope you are comforted, loved and supported. I hope you feel your full worth.

Elizabeth

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

RV! There are few things I love more than a good road trip!

Elizabeth

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

Mexican forever! I could seriously eat it every day.

Elizabeth

My favorite place in the World is...

Tough call, we go on at least one international trip every year and go all over the US. I think my favorite vacation was our trip to Ireland two years ago.

Elizabeth

We are the best choice because…

We see this experience as finding the best fit, and recognize that won't be the same for everyone. Following ethical adoption practices is paramount to us through this process.

Reza

The most special thing I own is...

We found an amazing heart-shaped rock while hiking the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. It's huge and we somehow got it through security/customs and brought it home.

Elizabeth

My philosophy on parenting is...

Lead with grace and humility. Embrace the messiness and the humor. Play every day. Laugh a lot. Apologize when you mess up. Value them for the individual that they are.

Elizabeth

Dogs or cats?

Dogs for sure.
