Helen -by Reena

“Helen is kind, gentle, generous and loving. Helen adores spending time with our friends’ children and it is lovely to see the bond they have with her. She cares deeply about people and always tries to imagine what it feels like to be in another person’s shoes. She works hard for social and economic justice and is committed to making a difference. She is my best friend who I can turn to for anything. Helen makes me want to be better every day. She is an inspiration to me.” — Reena

Reena -by Helen

“Reena is funny, fierce and a deeply loyal friend and partner. We laugh together every day, because of her delightful sense of humor. She has an amazing ability to connect with people — it’s what makes her a great doctor and teacher. I love watching her goof around and play with her godsons for hours on end. Reena goes out of her way to be there for our friends and family, especially in times of need. I know we can face all of life’s challenges together as a team.” — Helen

Together

Reena grew up in India and came to America to go to college and medical school. As a doctor, Reena is a specialist in the care of older people and has great relationships with her patients, their children and their grandchildren. She is also a professor in medical school and teaches young doctors every day.

Helen was raised in Pittsburgh but she traveled to many different places in the world growing up. In her job at a labor union, Helen helps health care workers advocate for a living wage and decent benefits. She speaks Spanish fluently and loves being part of many different communities.

We were introduced to each other by good friends in 1998 and became a couple in 2000. Since then, we have traveled around the country and the world, visiting Helen’s family in many different states and Reena’s, in India. At home, we love spending time with family and friends, exploring new places, and enjoying everything New York City has to offer. We’re also very excited about welcoming a child into our family.

At Home

Our neighborhood in New York City is one of the most diverse communities in the country and filled with many children from all over the world and the U.S. We can travel the globe just by visiting the stores and wonderful restaurants within a few blocks of our home! Every Sunday, we go to the farmers’ market near our apartment. Reena is an amazing cook and puts everything we get to good use by making delicious meals for our friends and family. Families meet at the neighborhood playground and also at our building’s beautiful block-long garden where parents help look out for everyone’s children, not just their own. We enjoy these special places with our family and friends’ children, when they come to visit.

Family and Friends

We are so lucky to have a large community of family and close friends, and we love spending time with them. Helen has a huge extended family — fifty first cousins! — and we attend lots of celebrations and gatherings. We love Reena’s two godsons and see them every chance we get. With our close group of friends, we cook and enjoy meals together, explore new parts of the city, visit museums and take road trips to the beach or the countryside. Our relatives and friends are very excited for us to become parents through the beautiful gift of adoption.
