A self-employed architect, recommended to his Walgreens pharmacist wife to make her hobby business to the next level.
When their youngest son got diagnosed with Autism, they decided to take their family business to the next level, and with a portion of their profit support children with Autism and Disabilities.
Baby Family Gifts of Kirkland, WA is a family owned business established in early 2009, by Armine Frangulyan-Adamov, Pharm.D. and Artur Adamov, R.A., AIA.
Originally Baby Family Gifts was known to its customers for its custom-made products, such as Diaper Cakes, Wish Wreaths, Hearts, and Gifts Baskets.
Changes came in November 2009, when Armine's close friend and pharmacy school mentor, Dario Alberton, passed away at the age of 32 from cancer.
Two weeks after Dario's passing, Armine and Artur learned that their youngest son, Levon, was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These two devastating events, made Artur and Armine rethink the purpose of their business and what impact they wanted to make in the Autism community.
New experiences both positive and negative, lead to the idea to support families affected by Autism.
Following the example set by Dario Alberton, who supported the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada during his battle, Artur and Amine decided to support Autism charities with a portion of their business profit.
With small word of a mouth and great passion and dedication, Baby Family Gifts began growing and expanding. Today we are serving customers in the USA and around the world, putting smiles on the faces of its buyers and families touched by Autism.
Baby Family Gifts is blessed to have a team of caring, compassionate and hardworking people that bring wonderful diversity, knowledge, and expertise.
Baby Family Gifts became a big part of the Adamov family's life. Besides this family business, both Armine and Arthur are currently licensed in their professional degrees and actively serve their local community.
Armine and Artur Adamov's four children are the main sources of their inspiration and passion for Baby Family Gifts.
They enjoy their kids' warm company, honesty, and how with their little smiles they can light up busy days at the office!
Originally there were only two little boys running around the office, helping to test animated toys and print shipping labels, but in 2014 and 2015, the Adamov family was blessed by the unexpected addition of two girls.
Angelina and Evangeline, joined Adamovs and the Baby Family Gifts team, bringing new inspirations, fun experiences at the office, laughs, and strong bonding between everyone. Baby Family Gifts became one big family!
Not everyone is blessed to be born healthy, but ultimately, it is what you are going to do about your health challenges that really counts.
Levon was born with clubbed feet. Just a few days old, he underwent corrective surgery and his feet.
Regardless of discomfort, Levon stayed a happy little guy, sang tunes at the age of 6 months in his crib, and kept everyone busy with his energy. Unfortunately, this did not last long. At the age of 2, Leven went silent and by age of 3 years old was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Levon's first words came at the age of 6 and his first phrases came at the age of 8. Now, in his teenage years, he speaks full sentences, keeps everyone busy with his questions and projects, teaches his little sisters how to talk, and enjoys a role of a big brother.
Levon amazes all of us with his beautifully-creative, artistic mind, loyalty, eagerness to learn, love, and never-ending energy. His example taught all of us patience, kindness, compassion and understanding.
Levon's success would not have been possible, without the help of his family, friends, specialists at Kindering.org, and Connections of Kirkland and Baby Family Gifts employees.
Coming from different cultures and backgrounds, everyone contributed to helping Levon overcome small challenges, that in long term made a big impact on his life.
Although at first many doubted the success of the business, Artur and Armine always believed that with hard work, any dream can become reality.
Arthur's uplifting personality, great sense of humor, and knowledge of technologies and e-commerce are a big part of Baby Family Gifts' success. He is simply that great expert that everyone likes to have around in the office and whose opinion counts.
EVA AND ANGIE:
Although Adamovs were not aware, their eldest son, Tigran, prayed every night asking God for more siblings after his brother Levon became nonverbal. Tigran wanted sisters, one who would be an "Exact copy" of him and one that would be an exact copy of, Levon.
Tigran's wish got granted with the unexpected addition of two little angels, Angelina and Evangeline. Surprisingly enough Angie has a resemblance to Tigran and Eva has a resemblance to Levon.
