In introducing ourselves, we sincerely hope that our story and values resonate with you and that you may be so kind as to allow us to share this journey with you. Again, thank you for looking over our profile and for the chance of fulfilling our dream of having our very much desired own child!

About Us

It all started on the dance floor at a mutual friend’s birthday party, and we have been inseparable since day one. We are very active in our day-to-day lives, and we are constantly on the go. We both work for the same company and appreciate that work is only 10 minutes from home. Family is a big part of our lives, and we are grateful our family lives close by for frequent visits and our Sunday family dinners. We are both big Disney fanatics and enjoy our regular monthly visits to Disneyland with friends and family. During our free time, we love exploring the outdoors and different parts of our community, all while enjoying our annual vacations both across the U.S. and internationally.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a very nice, quiet neighborhood in Southern California in a two-bedroom house with a large, fenced-in backyard that is perfect for our family gatherings and for playing with our large Great Dane puppy, Velvet. Our neighborhood is well-located, and we are lucky to have a few world-class museums nearby as well as the Los Angeles Zoo, which is the favorite destination of our nieces and nephews when they spend the day or weekend with us, and to be in a school district that is highly ranked. In fact, the local elementary school is just three blocks away. Frequent walks along the tree-lined streets, meeting new neighbors, and catching up with neighbors who have already become friends are additional blessings that we enjoy.

Our Extended Family

Family plays an extraordinarily important role in our lives, and we are both blessed to have close and loving relationships with our siblings (three siblings on Danny’s side-- and numerous nieces and nephews-- and two siblings on Bryan’s side.) Whether family members live close by or out of state, connecting with them on a regular basis remains our shared priority, and we enjoy different family gatherings and sporting events together as well as keeping in close contact through FaceTime and social media. Similarly, we also enjoy spending time with our closest friends who share our deep values and who have become second family by choice and are another terrific support system.

One of our most beloved traditions is Danny’s annual family reunion each Memorial Day weekend when upwards of 300 family members of all ages participate in an annual camping trip. We love spending time together welcoming new family members, reminiscing about the old days with the elders of the family, and playing games with distant cousins throughout the weekend. Bryan’s family tradition of celebrating the Fourth of July includes the special aspect of celebrating the several family members who were born on this day, including his beloved grandfather. Swimming, storytelling, games and sharing a family BBQ dinner make this holiday truly special!

What Led Us To Adoption

Early on in our relationship, we discussed having children since we both knew we wanted to be fathers. We both have been involved in the raising of our nieces and nephews, but we wanted to share our joy and happiness with a child of our own. We originally discussed surrogacy, but we chose adoption because of the support system Danny’s sister provided to children seeking adoption. We were so touched by her stories and the support she provided to so many children that we wanted to share our lives, love, and family with an adopted child as well.
