Peter & Evan

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile. We are in awe of your courage to consider adoption for your baby and take this leap of faith. This must feel new and strange to you, and it does to us, too. We believe everything happens for a reason and are humbled that the gift of adoption will help us start our family. If you choose to place your baby with us, they will grow up knowing and respecting your powerful act of love that brought them into our lives. We believe the only way we could ever thank you for this gift would be to vow a promise.

Our promise to you is to provide your baby with a loving home and a big, warm family. There will be a hug and kiss every day after school and rides to soccer, piano lessons, and play practice. We will help with homework and preparation for tomorrow’s test, have dinner at home with everyone around the table, read books before bed and do all the characters’ voices just right. And when life is difficult, we’ll say thank you and grow. When life is good, we’ll say thank you and celebrate.

Your child’s happiness will always be our number one priority. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.


About Us

contact

We met on the summer solstice and instantly fell in love. Both Southern California natives, our chance meeting over tacos at the beach sparked a romance that evolved into a committed partnership full of love, laughter, and adventure. After graduating from college, Peter got a job at a startup electric vehicle company that brought us opportunities we never dreamed of. We moved from Los Angeles to Oslo, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong, making the most of our 20s visiting places we had only seen in movies and read about in books. Evan worked between restaurants and bakeries, developing his cooking skills and passion for baking and decorating cakes. Now we both live in California. Peter’s still a busy bee, working, reading, and planning for our future, while Evan is working as a baker and is master of the house, cooking, and preparing for the arrival of a new family member.


Our Home

contact

We live in a vibrant, diverse community with high-ranking schools, parks, shops, restaurants, and hiking trails nearby. Our home is part of a special community of eight houses on a single property. We get along very well with our neighbors and look out for each other, including babysitting our seven-month old neighbor. We have two cats, Nebraska and Grendel, and most of our neighbors have pets, too. In the spring and summer months, we all enjoy hanging out on our patios, barbecuing, gardening, and catching up on the neighborhood gossip. We’re walking distance from a children’s playground, a few grocery stores, public transit, and some of our favorite restaurants and cafes.


Our Extended Family

contact

Our family is very close. We get together weekly with our siblings (they’re practically our best friends) and monthly with our parents, spending every holiday and birthday together. Activities range from low-key weekend hikes and Sunday dinners to major blow-out Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Super Bowl Sunday parties.

Welcoming your baby into our family is going to be one of the biggest milestones of all of our lives. She or he will be the first baby and will be showered with love and affection. Our mothers have been poking us for years about how ready they are to be grandparents. They even joke about how they’ve known for a long time that their first grandbaby would come from us and not our siblings! Your baby will be surrounded by love, support, laughter, strength, and wisdom in our family.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

We’ve always known that we wanted to be daddies someday. Evan was convinced early in his life that he wanted to adopt; he remembers going on church trips as a child visiting orphanages in Mexico, Russia, and Jamaica, and when he returned, he tried to convince his mom to let him adopt the children he had met. Peter turned out to be far easier to convince. After Peter learned about Evan’s sister’s adoption story and arranged meetings with multiple adoptive families to learn about their experiences, he full-heartedly agreed adoption is the right way for us to start our family.
