Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: Hawaii

dear expectant mother

From the bottom of our hearts, we want to express our gratitude to you for considering entrusting us with the privilege of becoming parents. Words cannot express how indebted we would be if we get to finally become dads. We know this decision to consider an adoption plan for your child is not easy, but we want you to take comfort in knowing that if you choose us, we will love, nurture, and care for your child for the rest of our lives.

We promise to always be a great support team, role models, and friends. We will be there for the good times and the bad times; no matter what comes along, we will love this child. We have a big support system in our lives and just know there will always be so much love and care surrounding this child. Our child will be spoiled by so many members of our families. They will never hesitate should we need help or support for anything.

We are excited and hope you give us a chance to experience being parents to this child. Again, there are no words to say how grateful we are. We thank you for considering us as parents to your child, and we look forward to the next chapter of our lives, when we will add an additional member to our family and fill each page of this chapter full of memories.

We are excited and hope you give us a chance to experience being parents to this child. Again, there are no words to say how grateful we are.

About Us

Aloha! We are Joshua and Brandon. We are in our early to mid-thirties and live in Hawaii. We have been together for nine years and will be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary this year. Brandon is full Filipino and currently serving in the United States Air Force with the Hawaii Air National Guard, and Joshua is Hawaiian, Filipino, Portuguese, and Italian; he’s a customer service representative for a third-party administrative company. Our interests include bowling and anything outdoors (hiking, walking our two dogs, and going to the beach), but our all-time favorite interest is anything Disney. We are huge Disney fans! Our first trip when we were dating was to Disneyland. We look forward to making more Disney memories together when we finally go to Disney World in the future.

Our Home & Pets

We are very blessed to say Hawaii is our home. We were both born and raised here, and one thing we would both agree on is that Hawaii is paradise. Beauty surrounds us every day in nature, and the ocean is only a few miles away. Where we live, our city is nicknamed the “second city” because over the past few years, we have had a lot of developments with grocery stores, shopping malls, and housing with the amount of people that continue to move out here. We really do have everything we need so close to home. We have two amazing dogs. Both are around the same age and mixed breeds. We adopted both from our Humane Society.

Our Extended Family

In Hawaii, one thing everyone agrees on is the importance of family. In Hawaiian, the word family is called “Ohana,” just like that famous line from Disney’s Lilo and Stitch: “Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” Ohana is not just blood relatives but friends, coworkers, and anyone you meet in your life that you have a special bond and connection with.

We both come from big families. Brandon has some family currently in the Philippines and some down here, and Joshua has most of his family here and across the mainland as well. Every weekend we try to make time to call our family for an outing or BBQ just to hang out and eat good food. One big tradition we always do for the holidays is have a big Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma's house with the family. We eat, play games, sing karaoke and enjoy each other’s company. Christmas is a huge tradition for us also. We all decorate as much as we can, and of course, we always decorate our house with Disney.

What Led Us To Adoption

We know adoption is the path meant for us to grow our family. We have so much love to share, a beautiful home to thrive in, and opportunities we’d be honored to provide a little one. We understand every situation is different, but in the end, we feel love can come from anyone and anywhere. We are secure in our careers and home; the only thing missing is a child to love and raise.
