Type of Education We Look Forward to Providing

We Love to Read!

We believe strongly in education both inside and outside of the classroom. For outside of the classroom activities we plan to regularly visit museums and historical sites. We believe travel is essential to understanding people of different backgrounds and cultures and we look forward to bringing our child to new places both in the United States as well as internationally. We plan on reading every single day both to our child and eventually with our child. We believe in teaching practical skills such as allowing them to help us when we are cooking, or working on puzzles together. For school, we intend to send our child to a private education, so they will be provided a multitude of educational and recreational opportunities.

Our Leisure Time

Enjoying the View in Maine

In our leisure time we love to go to live sporting events like baseball and hockey games. We also enjoy going to the weekly farmers market, and hiking. We are really excited to be able to share our love of games, museums, and puzzles with our future child, as well as exploring the wealth of new hobbies and interests our future child may expose us to. We also look forward to experiencing the cities that we love in a new way with our future child such as going to the zoo or aquarium. As the child gets older, we believe strongly in giving back to the community through volunteer work and would love to have our child involved as well. We look forward to hosting summer barbecues with friends and family, and to incorporating our future child into our holiday traditions such as dressing up for Halloween and trick or treating, or driving around with hot chocolate to look at Christmas lights.

Our Pup, Gadget

With Gadget

We both love animals, especially dogs, and Emily has had a dog as a pet even as a small child. After we were married our first family expansion was our dog Gadget. We adore Gadget, and we invest quite a bit of our time taking her for long walks, playing fetch in the backyard, and taking her for rides in the car. We believe that having a pet instills a sense of responsibility, but even more than that, expands one's sense of empathy. Caring for something outside yourself that requires consistent care and attention is a skill that we believe is very beneficial to learn at a young age. We are so excited to introduce Gadget to our future child. She seems to love children and gives our nephews lots of attention whenever they visit.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

Our house in Maryland was purchased with the intention of one day expanding our family. We live in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of kids up and down the block, of all ages. We own a four bedroom, three bathroom house, and our favorite areas are either the living room or the backyard. The living room is the main area where we hosts friends and family for movie nights, board game days, and is generally comfortable for socializing. We love our backyard and spend most of summer in our hammocks, around a fire pit, or setting up a projector for outdoor movie nights. Our dog Gadget loves the fenced in yard and will play fetch on the lawn for hours.

A Local Park & Community Space

The town where we live in Maryland is a small close knit community, where there are lots of events, such as the annual summer carnival, a large 4th of July fireworks display, a rubber duck race, and block parties. There are a few large parks with sporting fields, playgrounds, and walking/hiking trails that we visit frequently already. The town location also makes it easily accessible to visit the large cities of Baltimore and Washington, D.C. We often go to live sporting events, museums, the symphony, musical theaters, and other cultural experiences.

Our Extended Families

Christmas Dinner With Family

Becky has two siblings that live within an hour of our home, and her parents live within two hours of our home and we see them monthly. She also has another sibling that lives in the Midwest and we see them biannually. We love spending time with Becky's parents and siblings and especially her five nephews. We typically meet up at restaurants, baseball games, and every year we go to a beautiful Christmas lights display. Becky's grandma will often visit and she along with Becky's mom and sister will make traditional Filipino food like pancit and (Emily's personal favorite) lumpia.

Hiking With Family

Emily is also lucky enough to have both her siblings live within an hour of our home. She sees her brothers monthly, often meeting up at restaurants and sporting events. Emily's parents still live in her hometown in New Jersey but we still see them bi-monthly and we enjoy going on long walks and taking trips with them. Every year since she was a small child Emily's family has taken a vacation in Maine, and we look forward to being able to continue this tradition with a child.

We have some good friends that live nearby as well, and we see them several times a week. We love going to shows, movies, restaurants, the orchestra, and museums in Baltimore and D.C. with them. We also take an annual vacation to a lake to play board games and spend time together.

From Us to You

First off, we want to thank you for your consideration and time. We can't imagine what you are going through, and we believe you are incredibly brave. We want to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about our lives, and our hopes and plans for our future child.

We both work in the Information Technology field, one as an automation engineer, and the other in information security. Our jobs have provided us with the opportunity to work from home, and we have put significant time into creating a loving, safe, environment. We believe we have created a home that would be perfect for a family. We purchased a four bedroom, three bathroom house, so our future child will have their own room. We also recently refinished our basement so that we would have even more space for our child to play. We are located in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of other children to play with. We have a fenced in backyard for our future child to run around in and play with our yellow Labrador Retriever, Gadget. We are located near several parks to go on hikes, play on playgrounds, and play sports as a family.

We are also located near several major cities and we plan to bring our child to as many social and cultural experiences as possible. We enjoy attending professional sporting events, musical theater, symphonies, and museums. We look forward to taking our future child to these places as well as other fun experiences like the zoo and aquarium.

Working from home also provides us with a lot of flexibility. We are fortunate to be able to work from anywhere and we take the opportunity to travel whenever possible. We hope to provide our future child with private education so that they have the best chances for exploring all educational avenues and opportunities. We plan on continuing our annual vacations to Maine and Deep Creek Maryland but also on traveling to other areas within the U.S. and internationally with our future child. Our goal is to provide our future child with every possible opportunity.

We knew being an LGBT couple that we would have to follow a non-traditional path to creating a family, and we both feel that adoption is the right path for us. We plan to be very open about adoption with our child throughout their lives, starting in childhood through reading children's books about adoption and answering questions. We also hope to have an open adoption, and would work to come to an agreement with you, the birth parent(s), on what level of openness would be comfortable for you. We are happy to include emails, pictures, and yearly visits. We also recognize that this process must be very difficult for you, and would respect if at any point you would require time or space without contact, and we would help our future child to understand that as well.

Again, we thank you for considering us and we wish you the best during this process.

Sincerely,

Rebecca & Emily
