From Us to You

Thank you so much for taking a moment to get to know us. Before you review our profile, we want to take this opportunity to speak to you directly. We recognize that this is a confusing time, full of difficulties and challenges as you navigate through your pregnancy. We hope you are safe, supported, and loved during this journey. Just know that we are thinking of you as we admire your strength as you work to not only bring your child into this world, but also plan to make sure they have the best life as possible. Please think of us as your cheerleaders through this situation as we plan to be a source of support and understanding for you.

If you choose to include us in your adoption plan, please know that it will be the highest honor of our lives. With this honor comes our promise to you to respect you and whatever level of openness and contact you will want with us and want with your child. Your child will undoubtedly have many questions about their birth family and heritage, and we will be open and honest with your child about these topics to ensure they are connected to that integral part of their lives. It is so important to both of us that you feel respected as a member of your child’s life because, ultimately, they are yours. We understand that that role and that bond between you and your child is eternal. We may be known someday as Dad or Papa, but we will never be known as Mom because that is yours forever. We just look forward to the opportunity to be your child’s guardians and help them grow as they forge their path in life.

Please know we will do everything possible to give your child the most amazing life, full of love, understanding, support, and opportunities with the intent to help them explore the world and their place in it. We promise to work hard to give your child this life, while never forgetting to honor your role in their life and the choice you are making to trust us to care for them. We sincerely hope that even if you do not choose us to be a part of your adoption plan that you find the best path forward for you and your child. You will be in our thoughts and our prayers, regardless.

Thank you again for taking this time to get to know who we are. We sincerely hope to get to know you, too, very soon.

Our best wishes,
Chris & Kevin

Why We're Choosing to Adopt

We have both always wanted to be able to be fathers. The idea of being biological parents was never something we believed was practical, yet we always had a yearning to still be a parent, which led us to adoption. For Chris, the concept of adoption is one that not only allows us to fulfill our dream to be dads, but also the opportunity to provide assistance to a mother and child in need. Kevin’s heart is propelled to help those in need and realize their dreams, and he has always felt that was his calling. We both believe in pledging our services to enrich our community, and what could be a bigger act of service than adoption. Through adoption we could not only provide a loving and supportive home full of new and rich experiences for our child, but also an opportunity to connect our child with their history in a thoughtful and meaningful way that is approved by the mother. We never want to replace the mother of our child but look forward to being a part of the family as our child’s fathers, allowing us to broaden our child’s, and potentially our own families, in the process. The connection we hope to forge with our child, and potentially their mother, is an exciting opportunity and one we just feel we couldn’t have with an egg donor or surrogate. That is why we are choosing to adopt in an effort to enrich our lives and realize our greatest dream of parenthood.

About Kevin, From Chris

Kevin is a supportive caretaker in our relationship. Whenever there is a cold or flu or injury in the household, Kevin is there to make sure the number one priority is urgent health recovery. When I have an event to plan or attend, or I start working on a new project, Kevin is there to support as a volunteer, to attend and cheer along, or to be a proofreader and give constructive criticism. Kevin helped introduce me to foods that were always avoided by me but are now some of my favorite things ever, such as bell peppers, red onions, and Brussels sprouts. Outside of our relationship, Kevin has a wide variety of interests. The most prevalent is his penchant for fantasy books and other literary classics. Kevin owns an expansive library of these stories and looks forward to exposing our children to their lessons and lore. Kevin enjoys the quieter activities in life, be it viewing art at his favorite galleries, having tea at tea houses with his friends, or curling up with one of his books. One of the most notable things about Kevin is that through his place of employment he has met hundreds of people, most of whom still remember the impact he made on them. It seems no matter where we go, either shopping for groceries or on vacation, there’s someone that will stop us to say “Hi” to Kevin. Kevin is a warm and welcoming individual who enjoys all types of conversations, making him approachable and memorable to all that he encounters.

About Chris, from Kevin

Chris likes to be the planner in our relationship. Nothing brings him greater joy than being able to see the things he imagines come to life in a wonderful success, whether it be a meal, vacation, work event, or a party. It’s really important for Chris to remain timely as well. When he starts a project or task, he believes accountability and responsibility are really important and you can always count on him to follow through. Chris has a lot of heart and always shows his love through surprising people with things they don’t expect or making them laugh. And while he likes to be independent, he gladly takes care of others whenever he can because he knows that many depend on him and see him as a leader. Chris has always been a creative. He uses it in his teaching and writing. As someone who always hopes to make an impact and leave something better than he found it, he puts passion into everything he does because he holds strong to his ethics and defending what he believes is right. Chris loves to figure things out and gets excited when he tries new things or finds new places and creates a positive experience for himself and those around him. Chris loves to be goofy with his close friends and has a fantastic laugh. He loves to compete and likes to bring everyone in on the game. He may be introverted in nature, but that means that for the few he allows close to them, he’ll give them the world if that’s what they ask of him.

How We Met

In December 2008, Chris restarted his Match.com profile after becoming newly single. It was Kevin’s first time using an online platform as a means for dating and he was very nervous. But shortly after Chris started back on Match we connected. After sending novel-length messages to each other and having hours long conversations on the phone, we met at a Cheesecake Factory close to both of our apartments. Chris found Kevin handsome, funny, charming. Kevin loved Chris’ eyes, and how shy he seemed and was eager to see where the conversation was going to lead them as we sat down for our first date in the early afternoon. Our conversations lasted until the early evening, ending with a kiss and a promise to connect soon. That promise was fulfilled as Kevin texted Chris less than an hour of our parting. We continued dating for three years. During that time we went on many trips, had lots of parties, and generally dove headfirst in getting to know each other by moving in together before a year had passed. In May 2011, Chris proposed to Kevin at the Huntington Library in one of Kevin’s favorite areas of the garden. We married in 2013 after it became legal in California, and after years of dreaming of fatherhood via adoption, are now on our way to making that dream a reality.

Our Sweet Bunny

We are very fond of animals. Christopher had both cats and dogs growing up, but his heart has always been with cats. Kevin had several hamsters while growing up. Initially, when we first became a couple, neither of us had a desire to have pets. One day, our neighbors found a poor, abandoned rabbit under a dumpster. The neighbor did not know how to care for it and they left it outside in a carrier. When we saw stray cats approach the carrier, we instantly took it inside and decided to take care of the baby rabbit as our own pet. We named him Nibbler, and as we watched him grow, we began to realize how much the little guy needed our love and how much we both loved him. He inspired us to help other rabbits in need as well, and so if we came upon another rabbit that was abandoned, and we knew we were able to give it a better life, we would take it in. Over the 13 years we have been together, we have helped rescue 4 rabbits from various circumstances of neglect and abandonment. We even rescued a fish who had been abandoned in a garage and gave him a brand-new tank to explore. We currently have one pet, a Dutch dwarf bunny named Honey. Every morning, we let her out to run around and play in the downstairs of our home before we head off to work. When the last of us leaves for the morning, we put her away with a veggie breakfast in her den in the living room, where she has a great window view and gets to be the center of attention when we get home. We love to snuggle with her and cuddle with her sitting between our feet, and we always tell her when we’re leaving and when we’ll be home for more playtime. The best part of our day is when we get to let Honey out and watch her play and snuggle with us wherever we go in the house. She is our shadow and she is loved so very much.

Our Home

We live in a quiet neighborhood about 20 minutes from Disneyland in a two-story townhouse with our dwarf Dutch rabbit, Honey. Downstairs has a few rabbit decorations as we’ve become very attached to the rabbits that we have shared our lives with over the years (since rescuing our first rabbit, Nibbler, who was abandoned in a trash bin after Easter 2010). Kevin loves to decorate the fireplace mantle every month with decorations of the seasons, and Chris loves to keep the home smelling nice by cooking various cuisines and baking sweet treats. Chris loves to maintain an active lifestyle and uses one of our four bedrooms as a gym he can exercise in, and Kevin dedicated another bedroom to a Victorian-styled library in which he has a large collection of books, display pieces and religious icons to be used as a quiet place to read, pray, meditate, and study. Outside our townhouse is a little stone patio we filled with rabbit statues, an image of St. Francis (the protector of animals), and hanging and ground-based bird feeders. We set out a wooden picnic table under hanging lights to allow us to sit and enjoy the birds, nature, and the cool evening weather after getting home. Our complex is surrounded by trees and stays nice and quiet with a pool in the center. There is a park with a large children’s playground and physical fitness equipment at the back of our complex. It is one of 20 parks in our town, most with children’s playgrounds and splash pads. We also have a Children’s Museum that is a 5-minute drive away. We love that the surrounding area has all our shopping close by and we have many different restaurants that we can choose from. It’s also helpful that we are close to a hospital and civic center just down the street.

Our Families

Chris enjoys getting to visit his parents often by the beach where he grew up just a short drive away. Chris’ parents have been married since 1981 and have lived in the same house since Chris’ birth in 1984. Chris has 2 older half-brothers from his father’s previous marriage, both of whom are married with children. While Kevin is a child of divorce, he remains close to both sides of his family. Kevin has a younger brother and an older half-brother, both who are both married with children. Even if Kevin doesn’t see everyone on both sides of his family all the time, he enjoys spending the holidays with them and even maintains relationships with his second and third cousins who have always been so supportive to him. While one of us, Kevin, is sociable by nature, and the other one, Chris, is more introverted, both of us prefer to have a few close friends that we can count on. Over the years both of us have learned that quality is better than quantity, allowing us to forge deep connections and bonds with a few friends. To us, our friends are those that we feel are like family, having known many of them for 10 years or more. Every year Kevin travels to Northern California to spend an extended weekend to be with his best friend, whom he has known for over 20 years. When we get the chance, we love to have them over for small get-together to enjoy home cooked meals, conversations, board games, video games, or watching movies. Our home is the home base for our friends for holiday celebrations, with pumpkin carvings and gingerbread house contests happening each year.

Racial and Cultural Diversity

Cultural diversity and appreciation of differences has always been something that we have valued as individuals. For Chris especially, due to his background in Anthropology, and also his childhood memories with his Mexican/Navajo grandmother, the knowledge of and exposure to one’s culture and the culture of others is a vital component to a well-rounded human experience. Beyond Kevin’s Christianity, he has visited many different temples and cultural centers of worship, including Hare Krishna, Hindi, Eastern Orthodox, and Buddhist to explore the many thoughts and beliefs of others because they mean so much to the human experience and how to learn from their teachings about who we are and where we come from. Therefore, we would ensure that your child’s culture be present in their lives, be it a daily experience or based around special occasions and holidays. We will ensure they are tied to their origins, allowing them to connect with their past and help provide them opportunities to embrace and continue cultural traditions in their future. Culture is what ties us to a group of people, based on ethnicity, religion or chosen relations and identity. Therefore, the culture and ethnicity of your child will be present and valued in our household, as well as embraced by us as a couple and as fathers of culturally and ethnically diverse children.

Our Careers

Chris started his career in education as a Teacher’s Aide and moved to an Instructional Aide for special education. He worked in Mild-to-Moderate special education until 2009 when he started as a Paraprofessional working with individuals with moderate-to-severe disabilities. While helping a quadriplegic young man experience a swimming activity at a local community pool, Chris thought, “This is what I want to do for the rest of my life – helping those with the greatest needs to access the world around them.” In 2011 he became a High School Teacher at the developmental school he was working at, and in 2014 he moved up to become the Program Specialist of the school, supervising their two campuses in terms of educational programming as well as various other duties such as human resources, behavioral management, and state accreditation compliance. After earning his administrative services credential in 2020, Chris became the Education Program Director for the school and serves alongside two other directors under the guidance of the Executive Director.

Chris thinks back on a conversation with a close friend in 2010 when he was asked what he wanted to do with his life. Chris remarked then that he wanted to become a director for a special needs organization to help lead the next wave of special educators and programming for these extraordinary individuals. Today, he can confidently say he achieved that dream and it brings such a smile to his face.

Kevin had worked in nursery care and telemarketing before working for the Disneyland Resort in 2001 as a performer. In 2008, he achieved his dream Role of Merlin, the wizard from “Sword In the Stone,” but also graduated in Advertising and began his Leadership Career. Disney has always been a huge part of Kevin’s life, not only for its stories of fantasy and fairy tales, but because working there showed him that there were many people in the world that came to Disney because they didn’t feel like they belonged anywhere in the outside world, and so Kevin made it his goal to be a sort of real-life wizard mentor and teacher as a leader there to help other employees realize and invest in their own passions and talents and how important they were in changing people’s lives through art and creativity. As a leader, he has since helped them grow as people into their own careers and journeys, making them feel good about what they are passionate about and the good that they can bring into the world just by being who they are. His leadership is all about doing the right thing and guiding others to achieve great things in their lives, which is why he still finds himself working at Disneyland 20 years later.

We both value our careers in service and hope to promote that mentality for the future generation, both our own as well as the newcomers in our places of employment as we teach and lead the way for them.

Our Lifestyle

Our lifestyle has gone through phases since we first got together in late 2008. When we first got together, we were out of the house nearly every night going to movies, plays, museums, gatherings of friends, etc. Once we became pet owners (bunny dads), our nights in have increased to the point where we have mostly become homebodies. Video games, movies and TV shows dominate our evenings as we play with our bunny, Honey. When we do go out, we like to visit some chain and one-off restaurants, go see movies at the theater literally a 5-minute drive from our house, go hiking at the man-made lake, also a 5-minute drive from our house, go on walks to play the mobile game Pokémon GO, or visit the beach and potentially kayak one of the local bays. Once a year we try to travel outside of our immediate area, and those trips last between 3-5 days depending on the destination. Most of our trips lately are to San Diego, Morro Bay, or Big Bear. As Kevin is currently in school for his Master’s degree, Chris spends the nights Kevin is busy with schoolwork working on his creative writing projects and when Kevin isn’t studying, he’ll try to spend his time reading for pleasure and writing poetry or short stories.

What We will Teach your Child

Parents are the first teachers that children have. That responsibility is not lost on either of us- especially Chris. Having spent the last 16 years in the field of education, having an opportunity to help shape a well-rounded and confident human life that is supported and loved unconditionally is a role that Chris feels he has been preparing to play his entire life. Chris, specifically, is looking forward to exposing our children to social experiences like sports teams and organizations like scouting. Chris also wants to help them recognize history and its role in the world around us in an effort to open their eyes to how far things have come and how they themselves may be able to play a part in helping ensure a better tomorrow for all. This would be done through literature, museums (cultural, event, and art), but also open and honest conversations to allow your child to learn firsthand accounts of history and life in general. Another thing Chris is looking forward to exposing your child to is fiscal responsibility, teaching them the value of money via chore-driven economic opportunities when they are the proper age. As Chris has spent most of his career helping individuals with special needs become independent in various aspects of daily life, that experience is definitely going to be applied to preparing your child for adulthood responsibilities.

Kevin has always been passionate about the arts. He looks forward to singing to your child and reading and acting out stories with them. He has a massive DVD collection, and he has often felt that the reason he saved all the movies and books he had when he was growing up was because he wanted to be able to share them with his kids in the future. He plans to help your child to be passionate about talking to people and learning from everyone around them and also getting excited about the things that they learn. Kevin’s dad was a marine biologist and Kevin can’t wait to nurture your child’s curiosity about marine life and its different creatures. He also hopes to teach them independence when they are of age and the value of doing things for themselves like cleaning or making their own lunches and taking pride in their own accomplishments. He will nurture them to love learning in school by sharing ideas and asking for help when they need it and understanding the importance of balancing their responsibilities and having fun all together.

We will teach your child the value of respecting themselves as well as the importance of respecting others around them. We will nurture their spirituality and teach them to embrace that which is different and to nurture their curiosities to learn as much as they can about the people, cultures, and the world around them and encourage them to use all that they are gifted with to enrich the world for themselves and others and to have grace and humility while doing so.

Family Traditions

When we see the word tradition, we typically think of the holidays. We love to celebrate special events and holidays together, from smaller holidays like St. Patrick’s Day to the larger holidays like Christmas. Let’s review the holidays, shall we?

For Valentine’s Day, it’s typically a special meal (home cooked or purchased from one of our favorite restaurants) and an exchange of cards and/or gifts. For St. Patrick’s Day, Chris bakes pistachio chocolate chip cookies and we watch one of the 90’s Leprechaun horror movies, but Kevin also loves to watch “Darby O’Gill and the Little People” and “The Gnome Mobile” because they center around Irish mythology. For Easter, we make a big meal typically consisting of ham, potatoes, carrots, and Brussels sprouts before enjoying some Easter candy and watching “The Ten Commandments” with Charlton Heston. During Orthodox Easter, Kevin attends services in honor of the celebration. For the 4th of July, we barbeque hamburgers and hot dogs, make calico beans, macaroni salad, and an apple or blueberry pie before going to Disneyland for the fireworks show. For Halloween, we pass out candy (while sneaking some for ourselves) as we watch horror movies (typically Nightmare on Elm Street or the Halloween series). Also for Halloween, during the whole month of October, we watch one of the Treehouse of Horror episodes from The Simpsons each night (though as of 2021 we had to start doing more than one since there are 32 episodes and counting). On Día De Los Muertos, we lay out portraits of our family and pets that have passed and spend moments reflecting on their presence and inspiration in our lives. For Thanksgiving, we tend to visit Chris’ parents on Thanksgiving and Kevin’s families either the Friday or Saturday after (sometimes his mom’s family and dad’s family, or just one of them if time conflicts exist). Kevin typically makes a sweet potato dish while Chris does Brussels sprouts and some type of pie (typically with a cinnamon roll crust). The night of Thanksgiving, after returning from Chris’ family’s house, we enjoy watching Thanksgiving specials, from the Peanuts gang and South Park, while having a small leftover meal. For Christmas, we both go all out. First, the entire house is decorated with trees and various new and childhood-favorite decorations for both of us. Next, we participate in local performing arts events such as the Long Beach Nutcracker, South Coast Repertory’s A Christmas Carol, and Pacific Chorale’s ‘Tis the Season concert. We also go on drives to see local displays of Christmas lights. On Christmas Eve-Eve, we celebrate the day we first met by having a fancy, home cooked or local restaurant-purchased meal. On Christmas Eve, we visit Chris’ family and exchange gifts. Before or after Christmas, we celebrate the holiday with Kevin’s mom’s family and Kevin’s dad’s family separately. On Christmas, we spend the day together making a fun breakfast and a tasty, home-cooked dinner before watching a set of Christmas specials from our childhood and ending the night with our gift exchange. Throughout December we have a long list of movies and Christmas specials we try to watch each year, though we never have enough time in December to do them all. During Halloween and Christmas, we typically host parties with friends to celebrate the holidays with them. Halloween parties consist of a costume theme, pumpkin carving, and a movie marathon. Christmas parties consist of gingerbread house building contests and White Elephant gift exchanges.

Vacations and Leisure Time

We love to get away when we can and have favorite spots to go here in Southern California. San Diego is our go-to vacation spot where we enjoy long walks by the bay to check out the sailboats and harbor crabs, or through the Gaslamp district. With SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo both in the city, as well as many restaurants and museums, San Diego is always an exciting place for us to recharge. Big Bear, which is a little village-like city in the mountains, is another place we escape to. Big Bear allows us to connect with nature, whether it’s hiking the mountain trails, kayaking on the lake, or just sitting and listening to the breeze blow through the pine trees, Big Bear is quiet and serene to help us reset from our busy lives. Other places we have been to in the past are Morro Bay (a quiet Central California town with a vibe just like Big Bear, but sitting directly on the Pacific Ocean), Monterrey Bay (their aquarium is so neat!), San Francisco (tons of touristy things to do to keep our desire to explore satisfied), Las Vegas (the sights and the food bring us back at least once every two years), Seattle (we really enjoyed the live sports in the city and exploring the unique architecture and tourist traps along the oceanfront area), and the jewel of both of our eyes, New York City (the vibe of the city appealed to both of us as we spent nearly a week exploring landmarks, museums, skyscraper observation decks, and the glory that is Central Park). We would like to explore Chicago (a city Chris has been to before for a quick trip in 2018), Orlando (so many theme parks!), Hawaii (natural beauty at its finest), Alaska (a cruise through Glacier Bay is on our bucket list), and Europe (Kevin has family living in Germany). It is important to us to explore new places, cherish the places we love, but also to unplug and relax. We tend to attempt 3-4 getaways each year, with 2-3 successfully happening (work/family/pets can affect our planning).

<

Education

Both of us value higher education as a pathway not just towards various career options, but also an opportunity to broaden intellectual and cultural horizons. We both started our post-high school academic careers by attending community college, which we would encourage our children to do in an effort to avoid student loan debt. We also both transitioned to the local California State University, and even attended at the same time (though we did not meet there). Chris graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology in 2008. In 2009, Chris started his Master of Arts in School Counseling, with the hopes of becoming a school counselor. In 2011, he was approached by his employer to be a special education teacher, leading him to switch his major to special education with an emphasis in moderate-to-severe disabilities. He finished that Master of Arts degree in 2014, complete with a clear education specialist teaching credential in moderate-to-severe disabilities. Chris went back to school 6 years later to complete a second Master of Arts degree, this time in School Leadership as well as a preliminary administrative services credential to help support him in his role as Education Program Director at his school site.

Kevin was about to finish his undergraduate degree in Advertising Communications but then decided to become a double-major and also pursued Radio, Television and Film with an emphasis in Writing and Producing which helped when he went on to write several screenplays. He finished his Bachelor’s in 2009. During the time of the pandemic, Kevin decided he wanted to go back for his Master of Science and chose to do an online program. He is pursuing his degree in Human Capital so that he can continue to hone his skills in helping to rebuild company cultures through its people build businesses to be more creative and inclusive workspaces where people feel uplifted and excited to go to work with a passion for what they do. He looks forward to his graduation in 2023.

Our Hobbies

Chris’ main hobby is to write fiction, typically horror stories. He has been working on a book series dealing with the supernatural since he was in high school, finally publishing the first four books from 2014 to present. Outside of writing, Chris enjoys splitting his time between being active and being a homebody. When active, Chris enjoys hiking, jogging, weightlifting, kayaking, and rock climbing. When not active, Chris loves playing Nintendo video games, watching various cartoon shows from the 90s to today, and reading Marvel and DC comic books, specifically X-Men and Batman.

Kevin loves to be social. He likes to spend time with friends in intimate settings. He is a big fan of both English and Chinese Tea Culture. So, he enjoys any time he gets to share these experiences with his friends. His favorite place is the Huntington Library in Pasadena because he likes walking the gardens, looking at art and anything that reminds him of another time or place, especially old-world Europe. He’ll often play video games with worlds he can build or just run around in without even playing the story. He’s got his own story in his head. He’ll even write random short stories or poetry, and he’s written and illustrated children’s books. He loves to doodle and draw. When he gets to read, he goes to his library of books filled with mythology, fairy tales, and fantasy. The stories and the art inspire him to create characters and stories that live in his head, and he hopes to pull them together and publish them one day. Lastly, he loves to watch fantasy movies or movies in general, especially anything from the 80’s. He memorizes them all. He’ll also watch British Television, or his favorite shows “Frasier,” “Batman,” and “I love Lucy.”

Together, we enjoy exploring new TV shows and movies, playing co-op video games, going on trips to the beach, visiting museums and landmarks, going to live sporting events, and going on walks in nature. We’re big fans of the forest and ocean.

Our Promise to You

We value your courage to bring your child into the world and make the decision to help them find a family to help raise them to be the best person they can be in this world. It is not a decision we take lightly or one that we question whatsoever. We just want to ensure you that if we are chosen to be your child’s family, we will do everything in our power to make sure they are happy, healthy, and afforded memories and experiences that will help shape them into a well-rounded and functioning member of this global society. What does that mean? For us, your child’s happiness will be enhanced by our constant emotional and financial support, allowing them to be whomever they want to be in this world to the best of our ability to do so. Your child’s health will be paramount as we intend to help them lead an active lifestyle while eating as healthy as any child can/chooses to do so. That’s not to say we won’t be having dessert every now and then, as that is one of our favorite meals of the day to serve as a special treat for a day well spent. Regarding memories and experiences, we both have a wealth of fond memories from our childhood with family, doing activities around our neighborhoods and cities, and going on fun vacations to explore the world outside of our immediate areas. Those memories and experiences helped shape us as individuals to understand who we are, what we like, what we want in life. That is exactly what we want to provide your child – a childhood of family gatherings, of games and fun, of learning opportunities, of exposure to the wider world outside their front door.

We promise to honor your decision to choose us as the family to help raise your child by doing everything we can do and be everything we can be for your child. This is an honor and a realization of lifelong dreams for both of us, and we promise not a day will go by where we won’t appreciate your courage.
