About Us/Me

Hello and welcome to our profile! We are Alessandro and Lara and we are very excited to expand our family through adoption!

 

We grew up in Italy and we are both biologists involved in researching new therapies for diseases. We met while working in the same lab and while for Lara it was immediately clear that he was “the one”, it took few months as being just friends for Alessandro to realize the same! We have been together for 16 years, married for 9, which seems like a very long time but it literally flew by! We lived in Columbus, OH, from 2011 to 2017 and we have recently moved back after living abroad for 2 years.

 

We have a 3-year-old daughter, Alice. She loves to sing, dance and going to the parks to play with other children. She is an amazing child, happy and kind. She is very sweet to babies and we are sure that she will shower her baby brother/sister with love! Alice can’t wait to be a big sister!

 

Alessandro likes photography, watching movies, taking care of the garden (he grows all kinds of delicious vegetables and herbs!) and spending time with Alice. He never gets tired of playing “hide and seek”, doing the same puzzles over and over again and inventing games and jokes to make Alice laugh!

 

Lara loves crafting and trying new creative activities, especially crocheting, painting, and scrapbooking. She likes to involve Alice in her projects and spending time together creating memories that will last. She is also the best in storytelling and singing silly songs!

 

Together, we love traveling and before Alice was born we’ve been fortunate enough to visit Europe, Canada, Nepal, Africa, South America, Japan, and several of the States.  We are very looking forward to start travelling again and expose our child(ren) to different foods and cultures, as we truly believe that traveling can teach them a lot about diversity and inclusion.

 

We are very committed to eating healthy, organic and nutritious food; it is probably in our Italian blood! We enjoy cooking and we prepare almost every meal from scratch. Our daughter loves to help us making pasta, pizza, bread, and cookies…and we can’t wait to have another little helper in the kitchen! We love also to host gatherings with friends and family and testing out new dishes with them.

 

At the moment, we are renting a nice house with a backyard, in a residential neighborhood very close to a small playground and several walking trails. We really enjoy being outside as much as possible and we go to the park every time the weather allows us to do it! We are planning to buy a new house by the end of the year and our major requirements will be for sure a nice size backyard and a family-friendly community with lots of children!

 

We don’t have any immediate family living nearby but we go to Italy at least once a year, to soak in the sun and in the love of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  We also have several very close friends here in Columbus and we considered them as family, so much that our daughter calls them uncles or aunts. Our friends are beyond excited to be a part of our adoption journey and they cannot wait to welcome a new niece/nephew.

 

About You

We cannot completely understand what you are going through, and we can only imagine how overwhelming this must be, especially during such an emotionally and challenging experience like pregnancy. Please know that we admire you unconditionally for the selfless and courageous choice you are making, and we are very grateful that you are exploring the idea of adoption for your child. We assure you that your child will know that your decision was made out of love, and we will create a space for you to be a part of our lives at a level for which you want and feel comfortable. We will provide your child with a family and a home surrounded by a lot of love, support, and respect. We promise to love your child as our own, he/she will grow, play and learn together with our daughter and we will give them every opportunity that we can possibly provide. We want to help them find their talents, and to encourage them to chase their dreams.

 

Thank you very much for taking the time to view our profile and getting to know our family. We hope you will consider us as you make a decision for your child.
