• About Us:

      Yiota is an educator/supervisor at a high school and Tony is a corporate chef. We own a home just outside Boston where we live with our three rescue cats: Gigi, Penelope, and Apollo.

    • Our Story:

      We met in Greece 20 years ago when we were teenagers. We have been best friends and partners ever since. We got married in 2007, with a city hall wedding in Athens and a church wedding in the United States. We felt fortunate to have our special day – twice – with our loved ones from all over the world.

    • Our Hobbies:

      We enjoy spending days at the beach, evenings in the kitchen, and love going on adventures near and far.

      We make sure to spend quality time together every day. Some of our favorite things are relaxing with our kitties, playing with our nephews, or hosting a game night with our family & friends.

    • Qualities We See in Each Other:

      Yiota is a selfless, loving and caring individual. She has always believed in me and supports me in my life goals. I am excited to see her do the same with our child.

      Tony is a partner who is loyal, dependable, and caring. He is very silly and lots of fun – kids love him!

    • Our Extended Family:

      Yiota has a big family around Boston and extended family in Greece. Tony’s family lives in Greece and he has some cousins in MA.

      In our culture, spending time with family is the most important thing. We all work together to take care of children and elderly family members. We band together when times are tough and cherish every happy moment together.

      When the weekend comes, we gather for dinner and do outdoor activities. Our family gatherings are loud, fun, sometimes silly, sometimes serious, and full of love!

    • Our Adoption Story:

      We have experienced 10 years of infertility with multiple IVF cycles and miscarriages. We have been ready to be parents for a long time now and are excited that we found adoption as the route to get us there!

    • Special Activities We Look Forward to Doing with Our Child:

      We are excited to shower our child with love and guide them as they grow. No matter how busy life gets, we will have dinner as a family every night and family breakfast on Sundays. We will bake cookies together, read lots of stories, play games outside, listen to music and dance!

    • Holiday Gatherings:

      Easter is our biggest holiday and we love to host at our house.

      We always love getting together and enjoying some quality family time!

    • Our Home & Neighborhood:

      We live in a family neighborhood where everyone knows everyone. People help each other by removing snow after a bad storm or hosting a neighborhood BBQ in the summer.

      We live walking-distance to a nature reserve with a swimming pond, trails, and kayaking.

      We are also close to downtown Boston where we visit museums, restaurants, and everything a big city has to offer.
