Marina & Phil

Hi! We are Phil and Marina. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents to your child. We truly admire Your strength and courage during this journey and we are honored that you have taken the time to get to know us. We have been married for 6 years this May 2018 and together for almost 11. We met towards the end of our college years and could not believe we hadn’t known each other sooner. It turns out that Marina and Phil’s parents both have lived in the same neighborhood for over 15 years with only a few blocks separating each other’s houses. We also happened to have attended the same elementary school with Phil being one grade older. After we met, everything fell into place for us. We both love so many of the same things: going to the movies, riding our bikes, traveling to new places, watching sports or just catching up on Netflix. We always have a good time together and there is never a shortage of laughs. We both come from large immediate families. Marina is the oldest of 4 siblings (3 younger sisters) while Phil is the youngest of 4 (2 brothers and one sister). Family get togethers are never small, to say the least, but always large, fun and involve a lot of food! This is our dream for our own family as well. From our early dating days we could just close our eyes and picture our kids- there was always a lot of them! After several years of struggling with infertility and losses we realized that achieving this wonderful dream would take a little more time than we thought. We truly believe that everything happens for a reason and we know in our hearts our forever babies are waiting for us. Adoption was always something we knew we would do some day and we are thrilled to start this process.

We cannot wait until the day comes when our lives will be filled with endless giggles and cuddles, singing and dancing around the living room floor, sunny beach days and outdoor activities as well as whatever else their little hearts desire! We promise to love your child above all else in this world. Not only will they receive love from us but also from their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who cannot wait to shower them with kisses and unconditional love. Please take a peek at our profile to get to know us a little bit better. Thank you again for considering us!
