We are Nickolai and Keri from the Richmond Hills in the SF East Bay. We love that our diverse neighborhood means we can raise a family that reflects Nickolai’s Panamanian and Russian roots. Our child will grow up speaking both English and Spanish, learning about world cultures, and traveling to Panama, Colorado and the Midwest to visit family and exploring the US and abroad with us. We feel lucky to have found each other and built a life together and we can’t wait to be parents. Some of Keri’s family and friends created their families through adoption, and their stories and the loving connections they’ve built make us even more excited to meet you.
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We know that you are facing one of the most difficult decisions of your life and probably have many questions and worries about your child’s future. We are honored to be among the families that you are considering. It’s a little strange to write this- to be so filled with anticipation and excitement to meet and get to know you while recognizing that for you this process can be vulnerable and painful. We already admire your courage and your love for your baby.
