adoption profile - Nina & Galen

Nina & Galen

We're a silly, fun, happily married couple from NYC excited to add two little feet to our family!

Hi! We're Nina & Galen! We've known since we started seriously dating that we wanted to start a family. The biology hasn’t worked out, but we still very much want to raise kids. Through adoption, we’ll be able to! Families don’t have to be dictated by blood—love is enough, and we have that in endless supply!

What You Should Know About Me:

I grew up in New Hampshire doing lots of hiking, camping, music lessons, & reading. I, like Nina, studied music in college and grad school, but I now work as a computer programmer in NY and make music in my free time. I've wanted to be a dad since I was a child, myself, & am excited to be pursuing adoption!

What You Should Know About Me:

We're so excited for Mommy & Daddy to bring home a baby, because then they'll be too distracted to shoo us off the counter! The one bad thing about Mommy & Daddy is that they make us go to the vet...do babies have to go to the vet, too? And don't worry: When the baby arrives, we'll share our favorite boxes. Maybe.
