About Us/Me

Hi, we are Niki and Monica!  We met in 2009 when a mutual friend introduced us.  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 bought our first home 2 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 2 years.  We have a large fenced in back yard that will be great for playing outside.  We have a dog named Pearl that we have had for 8 years.  We were both born and raised in the Columbus area, and even attended the same high school, but we didn’t meet until many years later!  Niki has her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and does research in a lab at The Ohio State University.  She is smart, witty, and caring.  She loves to play with all of our nieces and nephews, and they love their time with her!  Monica works as an Executive Assistant at a nonprofit organization.  She is organized, caring and thoughtful.  She loves holding babies and 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 (we are currently crocheting a baby blanket for the nursery).  One thing that we look forward to every year is the trip we take to the beach with Monica’s entire extended family.  We also love game nights and cookouts with family and friends.  Monica loves to bake, and Niki loves to cook, so it is a perfect balance in the kitchen.  We have shared values that we hope to pass on to our child.  We value honesty, doing the right thing, and unconditional love.  We also believe in raising a child to be who they choose to be and helping guide them along the way.

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 close, big families that are excited for our new journey.  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 you don’t have to share DNA to be family in our eyes.  With our wonderful family, our foundation of love, and our strong bond, we are setting out on this journey.

 

About You

We cannot express enough how brave, strong, and loving we think you are.  It takes a wonderfully 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 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 more importantly, to thank you for being such a gift in someone’s life, hopefully ours.
