From Us to You

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We are Takia and Peter. We understand that finding a loving home for your baby is of the utmost importance. If you choose us, we will be by your side (as much as you prefer) throughout your pregnancy. Please know that you can count on us to support, guide, love, and care for you to the greatest of our ability. We would like you to know that we can provide your baby with a loving and caring home. We know you will not take this decision lightly and we want to share as much about ourselves as we can.

We met on a dating app in June 2018 (surprising, huh?). Takia thought it was hilarious that our first date was at a family and pet friendly restaurant, but we brought neither. Peter proposed a year later, and we were married in June 2020. Your baby will be coming into a mixed home, as we both have children from our previous marriages. Takia has two children. Her son, Xavier, is 21 and her daughter, Semiah, is 19. Peter has a 9-year-old daughter named Amber. In our family, we also have 3 wonderful cats named Shay, Scarlet, and Phoenix. They are adorable, and we know that they will love your baby just as much as we do!  We would like to adopt because Takia had a partial hysterectomy and can no longer have children. After our previous marriages, neither one of us believed that we would find someone we would want to build another life with, but through love, WE’RE HERE!

If you choose us, life for your baby will be full of unconditional love.  We love spending time as a family whether it be playing board games, going to parks, or just sitting together laughing and talking.  We have dinner together at the table almost every night.  This gives us a chance to talk about our days and about whatever else comes up.  Your baby will have the opportunity to participate in various activities from gymnastics to basketball and we promise we will be right there cheering along the way!  We promise to ensure that your baby gets the chance to see the world as we like to go to many different places on vacations.  Being able to experience other cultures and traditions is a great way to broaden someone’s perspective!

There is no way we could imagine what you are going through and how hard of a decision this is for you to make, but we promise your baby will be surrounded by nothing but love as we are all excited to bring another person into our home. The selfless act you are deciding upon will bless us with a wonderful new life and the start of a new journey.  We hope that you continue to read our profile to get a chance to know our family better as we feel we are the right choice for you and your baby.  Thank you for taking the time to read the words that came from our hearts.  We truly appreciate you.

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We are choosing to adopt because we are unable to have children of our own as Takia had to have a partial hysterectomy.  We believe that we will not only provide a happy home for your child but also a home filled with love. Our whole family is excitedly waiting with unconditional love and a lifetime of BIG family memories ahead. There is nothing we would love more than to welcome your baby into our life, to travel as a family, plan special theme parties for his or her birthday, and to giggle in the kitchen while we lovingly prepare whatever his or her favorite food is!

About Takia, by Peter

Takia is an amazing and special woman. She is a confident person, unafraid of confrontation, and is always ready to deal with day-to-day challenges.  I always know that she has my back and will be by my side during any of life’s struggles. Takia can be a fierce lioness when it comes to her children. She is their ultimate protector and nurturer. She has raised Xavier and Semiah into adulthood and supports them as they attend college. There is a special bond between Takia and her kids. Every morning and evening, she gets a hug from them both. They are always laughing and goofing off together. Takia also cares for my daughter, Amber, like her own. She makes sure every school morning that Amber is dressed in a matching outfit, her hair is brushed, and her lunch is packed. Takia has also taken care of children as a Child and Youth Program Assistant while serving in the US Air Force. She is an incredible person with a big heart that will welcome your baby into our family with open arms.

About Peter, by Takia

I am truly blessed to have Peter as a husband.  He is my teammate and best friend. We are each other’s rocks and cheerleaders.  He loves film, exploring new places, and trying new and unique foods. Peter has one biological daughter and is the greatest dad. He is fun, energetic and has a heart for people.  A good listener and easy to talk to, he is always there for his family and friends. Peter is the strongest person I ever met; he has overcome so many hardships, keeping his good spirit. He is joyful, caring, and enthusiastic. He loves kids and I know he will be a great dad to your child.

Our Lifestyle

Our lifestyle is one that is laid back and stress-free.  We are a middle-class, suburban family who loves spending time together. Our time is spent playing games, watching TV, and traveling. We never get enough of competitive Monopoly in our home, especially since Takia’s son’s mission is to bankrupt everyone else that is playing! We also play Betrayal Legacy as well as Time Stories. There are multiple expansions to Time Stories, and it is one of Takia’s favorites. We cannot wait to teach your child how to play!

We also enjoy getting out in the fresh air and going to the local playground together, or any of the other fun places around our city. We look forward to taking your child to the playground to watch him or her run around and play and have fun being pushed on the swings by their older siblings. Takia is the, “Let’s get up and go!” person while Peter is the one who likes to plan everything out. Between the two of us, there is never a dull moment in our home. We are not the only ones excited for your baby to join our family, the kids all are too! Takia’s daughter looks forward to having a new baby in the home. She cannot wait to spoil them. She tells Takia every day that she wants to sit and cuddle them all day long. Takia’s son looks forward to teaching your child how to play basketball as well as video games. Peter’s daughter can’t wait to exchange being the youngest for becoming an older sister. We can truly say our entire household is very excited to have another member to share in all our fun.

Home & Neighborhood

We live in a small community within a city in Southern California.  There are local walking trails, parks, as well as shops and restaurants local and within walking distance. Our home is located in a cul de sac so there is minimal traffic, meaning lots of safe playtime outside. Our home consists of 5 bedrooms and lots of space for our family and three cats.  We have a pool in our backyard that our family enjoys in the summer. It is already gated and secured for your baby’s safety. Our neighborhood is quiet and full of diverse families with plenty of children for your child to make friends with.  There is a park less than a few minutes walk from our house.  We frequently take our youngest daughter there to play.  An elementary school is located in the neighborhood as well.  Our neighborhood is close to many attractions, including the beach, a baseball stadium, and amusement parks.

Racial & Cultural Diversity

We have a very diverse family.  This is a second marriage for both of us and our family is completely blended. Takia and her children are African American. Peter is Thai and his daughter is Thai, Chinese, and Indian. We like to attend cultural fairs and actively keep up on social studies. Soul food is the main food cooked in our home.  When we eat out, our choice of food varies from many different cultures. When your baby joins our family, we would love to teach them about their heritage to ensure they know where they come from.  This will be an experience that our whole family is eager to take part in.

Our Families & Friends

We have a very large family, as well as many friends we consider as part of our family. We all get together throughout the year, not just on holidays. Takia has one sister, two nephews, and a niece. Peter has one sister and two nephews. Takia’s sister lives less than 20 minutes away so we are able to spend lots of time together. Takia’s nephews play basketball so we like to take the whole family to see their games and cheer them on. Peter’s sister and parents live a couple of hours away, but we always find time to visit each other. We do a lot of fun things when we get together, including seafood boils, birthday parties, and watch parties for fights and boxing. Other times, it’s playing games and socializing. There are many caring, trusted individuals that will be there for your child with all the love and support they can give.

Family Traditions

We don’t just celebrate family traditions on holidays. We love spending time together as a family and your baby will grow up with fun, weekly traditions too!

Every Tuesday, we have a weekly game night. Some of the games we play are Mysterium, Azul, and Sushi Go. Sushi Go will be the first game we show your child how to play. It is so fun and easy to pick up. Another weekly tradition we follow is sitting down to a big, family meal EVERY Sunday. Takia was raised to cook dinner each day, but when life gets a little busy and we miss a day, we always have a big, home-cooked meal to look forward to on Sunday. One of Takia’s favorite dishes to cook is homemade chicken and dumplings. It is a 4-hour process, but it pays off in the end when she sees everyone devouring it!

For Thanksgiving, Takia cooks every year with the help of her daughter. It is a bonding experience where they laugh and try not to make too big a mess! One of their favorite dishes to make for the holidays is homemade macaroni and cheese and Takia’s grandmother’s famous pineapple cake. Takia is the only family member her grandmother taught the recipe to, and she looks forward to teaching your child this cherished recipe.

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is when everyone gets to open one present on Christmas Eve. Our children love doing this and we know your child will love it as well. The present they get to pick is up to them whether it is big or small. We love the look on everyone’s faces as they open their gifts. Your baby’s future aunt (Takia’s sister) has already shared that your baby will have their own Christmas tree at her house as she is looking forward to spoiling them. We know that once your baby joins our family, there will be a never-ending feeling of love. We will ALL be fighting over who gets to hold the baby and cuddle with him or her.
