WE ARE SO GRATEFUL that you’d consider us as adoptive parents. We cannot imagine how you’re feeling at this moment, but what you’re considering is the most generous and wonderful thing, and we are deeply touched and humbled that you might choose us. If chosen as an adoptive family, we’re committed to ensuring that your child knows not only of your courage in choosing adoption, but your profound love for them as well.

IF YOU DECIDE THAT OUR FAMILY IS THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD, then you are probably going to be one of the most important people in our life. In that case, we want you to get to know us. We’re hoping that this first contact of you seeing our booklet and video can grow into something special with a bedrock of trust, understanding, and caring.

Please know that we want with all our hearts to provide a child with a loving home and give them a life filled with joy, learning, affection and warmth. We can’t wait to expand our family from two to three, and have a child in our lives.

We love to dress up and joke around

Fun adventures, seeing the world

We love TRAVEL and ADVENTURE and our little one will be part of it all.


We met through one of our dearest friends. After a whirlwind romance, we knew this was a forever love. We moved together to Asia within a month, and never looked back. We’ve been together since 2012 and we got married two years after meeting. We lived and worked in Asia for a couple years, then moved back to the US and our jobs are now in New York – Alex in public health and humanitarian medical care, and Estelle’s job is protecting nature, especially forests.

We really enjoy traveling together. We have taken trips around the US and the world together. We’re adventuresome and sporty, and love the thrill of trying new things. Whether it’s hiking in Indonesia, biking in New Zealand, kayaking in upstate NY, touring ancient temples in Cambodia, scuba diving in Greece, or soaking up beaches in Brazil, we’re up for fun adventures around the world. It’s a big part of our shared interests and we can hardly wait to introduce a child to new sights and experiences.

We’re also very hospitable. There are often friends and family staying with us in our spare bedroom whenever they pass through New York. We’re never happier than when cooking or grilling a dinner for them!

The other thing that really bonds us together is that we both have spent our professional lives making the world a better place and giving back to communities in need.

We feel SO BLESSED and LUCKY in our lives, and we believe in sharing the LOVE.

Hiking together we can climb any mountain
