Damian Wainschtein and Steve Zwillinger

San Francisco, CA

We are Damián and Steve, from beautiful San Francisco. Our hearts are ready to welcome a baby and we look forward to creating a vibrant and happy environment for him or her. We are very excited about open adoption because we want our child to know who they are, where they come from, and that they have loving support to become the person they wish to become.

Nuestros corazones estan abiertos para dar la bienvenida a un bebé a nuestro hogar. Desde hace tiempo soñamos con hacer de nuestra casa un lugar lleno de amor y alegría para un niño o una niña. Elegimos adopción abierta porque queremos que nuestro niño sepa quien es, de donde viene, y que tiene todo el amor y el apoyo que necesita para ser lo que quiera ser cuando crezca.

Our home

San Francisco and the Bay Area is a fantastic place to live and raise a child. As avid nature lovers, we look forward to the day we will visit the nearby beaches and parks with our child, and show them the majestic Sierra Mountains and Yosemite National Park. We also can’t wait to see our child discover nature, learn to ride a bike with us along the coast and go on hikes as a family in the trails that overlook San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. Our home is a place to relax and spend time together — as well as to share with friends and family. The neighborhood we live in is amazing, full of diverse backgrounds coming together every day. Close to home we love dining in cafes and restaurants, picking out fresh produce and baked goods at the farmers markets, and listening to live outdoor music. The neighborhood is considered the Jazz District of San Francisco, and we hope that our child will share in the fun and lively atmosphere. As for adventures, we have parks and playgrounds, the San Francisco Zoo, and some of the coolest museums around. Our child won’t miss a thing — from exploring Golden Gate Park…to playing soccer… to simply lying on the grass with us, and watching the clouds drift by.

Greetings from California!

Hi! We are Damian and Steve from beautiful San Francisco. Our hearts are ready to welcome a baby and we look forward to creating an open and honest relationship with you. We are very excited about open adoption because we want our child to know who they are, where they come from and that they have loving support from all of us. We would love to hear from you!

We are better together

We both enjoy wonderful careers, Damián as a Policy Writer for a domestic airline, and Steve as an Art Director for a large bank. What matters most to us, though, is spending time together. We recognize how fortunate we are to have each other, and want to share that love with a child. Cooking is a great love for Damián. He recreates family recipes and puts that love on the table for all to enjoy. One day, we imagine our child rolling out fresh pasta, forming empanadas, and getting a face full of flour while he or she learns the abc’s of cooking from Damián. Steve is an artist who loves to draw, design, and renovate. Everywhere he looks, he sees possibilities. Steve dreams of the day he will sit at a table and draw with our child. It is our hope that all this creativity creates a warm, loving environment that nurtures a young spirit and fuels an active imagination.

A shared sense of parenting

As a couple, we have lots of love to give, which is why we want to create a family. We want to celebrate our traditions together, from July 4th barbecues to Thanksgiving turkey with all of the trimmings. We are committed to providing our child with exciting new opportunities for growth, and to do everything in our power to raise a good, compassionate human being. We both understand the importance of having good values and a true sense of humanity. It’s important to us that our child develops creatively and intellectually to the best of their abilities, and to help him or her build strong self-esteem. Education is also very important to us, and we will make sure to provide our child with the best possible school opportunities, to give him/her the skills to have a productive and successful professional career. We chose Open Adoption because we think it is important for our child to know where they come from, who their birth parents are, and to know that having been placed for adoption was an act of love. We are committed to helping our child recognize, understand, and embrace their adoption story, and we will always support the healthy relationship they need with you.
