Keith & Yo

Family Type: Gay Couple
State we live in: California

dear expectant mother

The courage you have shown in considering an adoption plan and searching for the right family for the precious life you’re carrying is tremendously admired and appreciated by us. We are humbled you are taking the time to get to know us better. We could not be any more grateful for your selfless act of considering giving us the opportunity to care for your baby.

We both came from very loving and big families. Should you choose us, your child will be exposed to this foundation of love and support. We will expose your little one to so many of our family traditions like traveling to visit Lola and Lolo on the East Coast, wishing “Happy Chinese New Year” to Yeye and Nai Nai in Southeast Asia, and taking small trips with our little “pawter,” Luna.

We will also do our best to make sure your child’s culture lives strong while allowing them to explore and embrace all the lifestyles and cultures the world has to offer. We are looking forward to giving our future child a place to grow so the world knows how smart, kind, and important they are.

We hope you find the right fit in us for your child as we are looking forward to beginning this lifelong journey with all its mountains and valleys and all that will come in between.

About Us

Yo works in a tech company as a product designer, and Keith operates his own online business. We are both creatives. Keith’s expressive nature complements Yo’s tact in balancing harmony. We are from very different backgrounds and cultures but are bound with love and respect. Our core value lies in having deep understanding by looking at the big picture. We believe we are put in this world to leave it better than we have found it. Family means everything to us as we both came from a big and loving family. We love to travel to expose ourselves to different cultures and perspectives. Keith is especially fascinated about the land and the nature that shape the different parts of the world. And Yo’s curiosity lies in the different kinds of food and culture the world has to offer.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a suburban city of Southern California that is recognized nationally for its safety, well-planned parks, green belts, and open spaces. It has great public school ratings and also is home to several higher education institutions. Our home always has warm meals, delicious baked goods by Keith, and various cultural snacks that Yo introduces. We’re a very music-loving household. You will always hear music from different genres playing in the background. We have a little terrier mix, Luna, who is great with kids. She loves to play catch with her toys and snuggles with us at night while we watch TV. On Christmas, you will see a very festive home because who can say no to some holiday cheer?

Our Extended Family

We both have large extended families that resulted in us having a lot of cousins. Each of us grew up together with our cousins, and we treat them more like brothers and sisters. The majority of Keith’s family reside on the East Coast. For the holidays, we alternate every other year between the East and West Coasts. There’s always lots of food, board games, and laughter during the holidays. We can’t wait to start including your baby in the white elephant and gift exchanges during Christmas.

Though most of Yo’s family is in Southeast Asia, his sister and her extended family live nearby. He adores his nieces and nephews and spends a lot of time with them putting on talent shows, making tie-dye shirts, going to the county fair or Disneyland, or watching movies.

Because of our big family backgrounds, we treat our close friends much like our extended family. We love being uncles to all of our close friends’ children. We are blessed with the diversity of our collective family and friends. With their different backgrounds and success stories, we are excited to expose your baby to these great examples. They are all excited as well.

What Led Us To Adoption

Given the large families we both have, we’ve always wanted to grow a family of our own. We wholeheartedly believe in the true power of love and that it will thrive and multiply when we share it. We understand our love and purpose is larger than ourselves. The love we receive from our parents only fuels us to strive to not only become the best people in the world but also the best family unit to provide a safe and loving home and the best couple to parent a child. We have a couple of close friends who have adopted. Witnessing their lives not only inspires us but also leads us to believe we’re ready to embark on this loving and giving journey.
