dear expectant mother

It must be overwhelming looking for parents to love, care for, and support your baby. You are faced with this difficult decision and task because you know there are plenty of couples like us who are ready to give your child shelter, support, a sense of belonging, happiness, and, most of all, unconditional love. We both believe that no matter how difficult this task is for you, God does not give you more than you can handle, because we all live by his strength.

We are so grateful you are taking this time to consider us to raise your baby. We would love to have the opportunity to show her the world through our eyes through travel and education while teaching her about grace, humility, and compassion. We just want you to know your baby girl might not be flesh of our flesh or bone of our bones and although she did not grow under our hearts, she will grow into our hearts.

Adoption has always had a special place in our hearts, and it’s definitely been something we would have included in our life plans regardless of whether we were to have biological children of our own.

About Us

We both work in the medical field, and that’s how we first met. Coming to work soon became very interesting despite the long and tedious hours simply because we became each other’s inspiration. We’ve since both moved on to different jobs, but we remain in the service-oriented environment. We stop at nothing to find an excuse to find a time to celebrate each day by baking a cake, making cookies, cooking, reading, or traveling because we believe these moments of togetherness is what makes a family. We rely on each other for support as well. We will use teamwork in raising your baby as a kind, loving, strong individual who will become a responsible and caring citizen and someone with good morals and strong beliefs.

Our Home & Pets

We currently own a two-bedroom, two-bath condominium in a West Coast city. Our neighborhood is in close proximity to a lot of restaurants, parks, grocery stores, church, the elementary school, the beach, and the YMCA. We currently have three dogs: Chubbycheeks, Foster, and Brutus. Our dogs are part of our family and go on trips with us when we travel locally. We would like to think they enjoy kayaking and paddleboarding during the summer and skiing during the winter, but we’re pretty sure they would do anything to get out of the house!

Our Extended Family

When they say it takes a community to raise a child, in the traditional Filipino family, this task is actually the responsibility of the whole family. Grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins all share the responsibility of raising a child. One is brought up in the loving and warm environment that is known as Filipino hospitality. No one will be lost in our community. Common occasions such as birthdays, weddings, Christmas, and New Year’s are celebrated as a feast. We are generally foodies and take every excuse to come together and share a meal. There is comfort in sharing emotions, high or low. There truly is strength in numbers.

Everyone is excited to welcome your baby. They say it’s about time we grow our family. In fact, they plan to take turns helping to care for her. We will truly be honored to care for your little girl.

What Led Us To Adoption

Adoption has always had a special place in our hearts, and it’s definitely been something we would have included in our life plans regardless of whether we were to have biological children of our own.
