Thank you for choosing to look at our profile book and take the time to get to know us. We are blessed to be able to welcome a child into our home and that child will be loved unconditionally. Adoption has always  been a part of our family and it is our dream to continue on that path. We know it can be a difficult decision, but we appreciate your consideration. We have a sincere respect for you and the courage it takes to make this decision. Our dream would not be possible without you.


Behr & Neena

Our Story

family photo 4We were two worlds away and met by chance through family and friends. Behr was from Illinois and Neena was from Arizona. While dating, in a long distance relationship, we grew to know each other very well. We visited each other often and then made the commitment to be together forever. Neena and Behr were married and began their life together in Illinois. Being from families that had already adopted, we always knew we wanted to adopt as well. Our families and friends are extremely supportive and excited to begin this journey with us.

family photo 3Family is the most important thing to us. We make it a priority to spend as much time together as possible. Our family has been formed in nontraditional ways and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We are thankful that God has given us the opportunity to start our family through adoption. We have so much love to give and are praying for a beautiful child to fill our hearts with more.
