Dear Expectant Mother,
We thank you greatly for taking the time to read our profile and for your considering us to raise your baby. We have a deep respect and gratitude for you and can not truly express how grateful we are for you being willing to help us become parents.
As a couple, we enjoy spending time with our families and cooking and baking while everyone is gathered around. We hope to share these traditions and our passion for music and cooking with your child as they are what we cherish.
You are a blessing to us, and we cannot begin to understand the amount of love, courage, strength, and faith that is required to pursue adoption for your baby. Although we have not yet met, we look forward to meeting you and having a relationship with you. We have built a home anchored in love and open communication and would love to have a relationship with you as you desire. We admire and appreciate your strength and courage in this process and know that we could learn a lot from you. We promise to honor you and to provide a life that is rich in love, education, experience, culture, and support for your child. We thank you again.
Kearnan works as an endocrinologist, and Edgar works as a hairstylist. We met during Kearnan’s first year of medical school, and our relationship quickly grew and blossomed from there. Although we come from different cultural backgrounds, our values have always been similar. We both come from self-made families with high morals and a strong work ethic. We have great compassion and an appreciation for family and friends, who are of the utmost importance to us. We have always connected with one another because of our deep love for family traditions, travel, education, and movies.
We live in a diverse, cosmopolitan city surrounded by nature and an active community. The things we love the most about our home are the location, its access to good school districts, and the living history. The neighborhood is steeped in traditions, from holiday festivities to the local neighbor watching over your house while you’re gone. Our house is nestled on a corner, with plenty of yard space to play outdoors, and it is within walking distance to local shops, restaurants, and parks. We both grew up with pets in the home, and our deaf Dalmatian recently passed; however, we plan to adopt another dog soon.
Our Extended Family
Edgar comes from a large Filipino family with many traditions, from making his mother’s famous lumpias during the holidays to Thanksgivings spent with nieces and nephews at Disneyland. Edgar’s beloved mother passed away years ago, and his sister has stepped into the role of the family’s loving matriarch.
Kearnan grew up playing the piano and has composed many pieces. The family would gather around Kearnan at the piano and sing Christmas carols during the holidays, and this is one tradition we can’t wait to share. Kearnan also comes from a family of bakers and has become known for his famous cookies, which have graced many a wedding as favors and in even in place of a wedding cake!
Kearnan and Edgar are very close to Kearnan’s mother, and she is excited about becoming a grandmother. Your child will grow up with many aunties and uncles. We understand the importance of having a solid base of support, and our family and friends can’t wait to enrich the life of your child.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our strong desire to have children and raise a family together has been present almost since we first met and began exploring and sharing our core values and lifelong dreams; therefore adoption has always been at the forefront of our options. We both have always wanted to be fathers, and since we are a gay couple, adoption is the perfect answer. We have close family friends who were adopted, and we have friends who currently are going through the adoption process. We have witnessed the beauty of adoption first hand and therefore know it is meant for us. We recognize adoption as a priceless and selfless gift that will allow us to be responsible and loving parents.
