About Us/Me

Hi, we are Niki and Monica!  We dated for 5 years before getting married in 2014.  Our wedding was one of the best days of our lives because we both got to marry our best friend.  We value our marriage so much and work together as a team in all things.  We adopted our son, Kieran, with the love and help of Choice Network just over a year ago.  He is full of joy, and there is nothing we love more than playing with him, teaching him new things, and watching him grow!  He is such a loving and happy baby; he is always laughing and singing and dancing, and we have so much fun with him.  He will make a great big brother and we hope for a sibling close in age to him so that they can grow up as best friends.  We bought our first home 4 years ago and we love it.  It is in a nice neighborhood with many young kids, and we have built friendships with many of our neighbors in the past 4 years.  We have a large fenced in back yard that is great for playing outside.  We have spent the summer playing ball with Kieran and using his splash pad in the yard to stay cool.  We have a dog named Pearl that we have had for 10 years.  We were both born and raised in the Columbus area, and even attended the same high school, but we didn’t meet until years later!  Niki has her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and does medical research.  She is smart, funny, and caring, and she loves to make Kieran and all of our nieces and nephews laugh.  Monica works as an Executive Assistant at a nonprofit organization.  She is organized, caring and thoughtful, and she is known for always having anything you might need in her purse.   We both love spending time with our families, road trips, dancing, reading and crafting.  Monica loves to bake, and Niki loves to cook, so it is a perfect balance in the kitchen.  We also love game nights and cookouts with family and friends.  One thing that we look forward to every year is the trip we take to the beach with Monica’s entire extended family.  Last year, Kieran went for the first time at 3 weeks old.  We look forward to family trips in our future, with active fun like hiking and going to museums.  We absolutely love being moms!  We value honesty, doing the right thing, and unconditional love.  We believe in raising a child to be who they choose to be and helping guide them along the way.  As parents, we feel that it is our responsibility to love, support, and protect our children always.

Family is a big part of our life.  For us, family is the people you share your life with and can count on to stick with you through the ups and downs.  We both come from big families that we are very close with.  We are thankful to also have a great group of friends that we’ve made over the years that have become part of our family, because we believe that you don’t have to share DNA to be family.  With our wonderful family, our foundation of love, and our strong bond, we are ready and excited to add to our family.

 

About You

We cannot express enough how brave, strong, and loving we think you are.  It takes a very strong person to make this loving choice, and your decision will never be taken for granted by us.  We are excited that our child will have 3 moms to love them.  When we say “our child”, we want you to know that we mean yours and ours.  We want to love and honor you however you see fit in our child’s life.  We have a wonderful open adoption with Kieran’s birthmother, and we love her very much.  We text, share pictures, and email with her regularly.  We would love to welcome you into our family and share with you if that is what you choose.  We vow to always make sure that our child knows how much you love them, and to always appreciate you and the choice you have made.  We promise to make sure that our child knows where they come from and to celebrate and value their culture and their first family.  We want to thank you for taking the time to read about us and we wish you the best!
