dear expectant mother

We hope this message finds you in good health and spirit, as we are extremely grateful that you are considering us as prospective parents. While we know we will never truly understand how you feel right now, know that we are two loving and caring men committed to working alongside you through this process. With the utmost respect and appreciation, we thank you for your courageous and selfless act while making this decision.

We are very excited about the possibility of building our family together. We are both fortunate to come from close knit families who value relationships and working to make our world a better place. Our upbringing, education and experiences have made us both culturally sensitive and we understand the importance of preserving and honoring your child’s culture. We hope to enjoy the challenges and joys that parenthood will bring as we will work together to raise a confident, respectful, thoughtful and loving child who values diversity, honesty and giving to others as we do.

Over the last 18 years, we have worked to strengthen our home and values. We promise to provide a child with lots of laughter, great experiences, an abundance of support during tough moments, and unconditional love at all times.

Again, we thank you for considering us as prospective parents and we look forward to beginning this journey of parenthood with you. We eagerly anticipate meeting you and gaining a better understanding of your hopes, dreams, and aspirations.

About Us

Charles is originally from Texas and Davian is a Southern California native. We both come from hard working families that had limited resources and similar struggles, but we were surrounded by a whole lot of love. We both became the first from our families to attend and graduate from college, which is where we met and immediately became the best of friends. We had so much in common and soon we became an inseparable couple. Our teachers had such an influence on us that we both became educators ourselves. Charles is a principal of a K-12 school and Davian is an Assistant Principal of a middle school. Our commitment to empowering and inspiring young people is a major part of our professional and personal lives as both of us are also very involved with various organizations that support youth in our community.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a beautiful neighborhood with wonderful and friendly neighbors. We just finished renovating our home in anticipation of growing our family. Approximately 2,100 square feet with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large backyard, our home is located in Long Beach, California where there are many attractions including the Aquarium of the Pacific, Queen Mary, Disneyland, the Michelle Obama Library and many other things for our future family to enjoy.

Our Extended Family

Family is an important part of our lives. Traditionally, we spend most holidays, birthdays, and special occasions together with both sides of our family. Whether it is Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July, game night, family barbecue, karaoke or any reason for us to get together, our families, including grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, and nephews enjoy spending time in our home.

Together, we have created a tradition of traveling during extended breaks when school is not in session. We regularly travel to explore and expand our knowledge through visiting landmarks within the United States and other countries. We have visited China, Thailand, Mexico, Europe, India, Dubai, Brazil and 29 states in the USA. We anticipate continuing these traditions and creating new traditions as we grow our family.

What Led Us To Adoption

Being that we both come from relatively large families, we have always been surrounded by people who love and support our hopes and dreams. In 2015, we both agreed that we were ready to become parents. Together, we researched the different options available and decided private adoption would be the best path for us. After researching the options, we found that this pathway presented an opportunity for us to work with a birthmother to help fulfill her hopes and dreams as well our hopes and dreams of parenthood.
