We want you to know how much we admire your courage and the tremendous love you have for your child. Thank you for choosing life and adoption for your precious baby. We cannot imagine all the emotions that are going through your heart and mind. We pray that you would feel God's incredible peace and love as you make these hard decisions. We hope we can make this journey easier for you, so let us introduce ourselves to you.
We are David and Lan and have been married for almost 8 years. We have been blessed by the miracle of adoption with our son Samuel in 2014. He is excited to become a big brother! We believe children are a gift from God and are so excited to grow our family again through adoption. We have a strong marriage that is built on faith, love and mutual respect. Before we go to bed at night and every morning when we wake up, we say "I love you." It is important for us to always eat dinner together and spend quality time as a family. Our children will know that we love them and we will encourage them to use their gifts and be all that God created them to be. Thank you for taking the time to look at our Profile and see who we are and how much your child will be cherished in our family.
We met in 2006 in the cafeteria at work. One day shortly after Lan began working at our company, she stopped by the cafeteria to get a cup of coffee with a co-worker. David was in the cafeteria, saw Lan, and asked a co-worker to introduce him to her. David had a rule that he didn't date girls from work so we remained friends for a period of time. A year later, David was transferred to Chicago. Then, he called Lan a few weeks later to ask her to go on a first date: a wedding for his best friend. Fast forward 9 months later to our engagement. We have been married almost 8 years and we feel so blessed to walk this life together hand in hand. We are each other's best friend and love spending time with each other regardless of what we are doing; our lives are full of joy and laughter. Divorce is not an option for us and we made a vow before God, our families, and our friends to stay married and we take that commitment seriously. We want our children to grow up in a stable home with a loving father and mother. We want them to have the security that their parents love each other and how much we dearly love them.
About David: By Lan
David loves sports, especially football. He loves to go camping and hiking and has trekked many miles in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. You can also find him in our yard "farming," he likes to bring me fresh vegetables for dinner and has a very green thumb.
David works for a large insurance company and David is the manager for the Education and Technology departments. He works 3 miles from the office so he can come home for lunch and we always have dinner as a family.
David is the best dad to our son Samuel. They like to go explore out in the yard or the nearby parks. Bedtime is a favorite at our house because David gets to play and read to Samuel before we all put him to bed.
David is the best man I know. He is very loving, has a kind heart, and makes me feel safe and taken care of. I am truly blessed to share my life with him.
About Lan: By David
Lan worked as a Sales Manager and is now officially retired from the business world. She takes such great care of Samuel as a stay at home mom. She always has something new and challenging lined up for him to try. For example, he went to his first swimming class when he was three months old; and he loved it! Lan works really hard to make sure he is happy, healthy and well fed. She even made all of his baby food.
Lan is a great cook and baker. Her cakes and desserts are so good that I would prefer to have her desserts over anything from a store or restaurant. Lan doesn't have to, but she packs me a lunch for work every day and my coworkers remind me of how she spoils me. I always make it a point when talking about Lan to let people know that marrying her was the best decision I ever made, and I truly mean it.
Lan gives three things to me that help me every day: her love, respect, and support and I know that she would be able to share these things with your child.
Samuel was born in August 2014 in Texas. He is such a happy boy and has a big laugh that just makes you smile.
He loves to play but especially with toys that have music. He loves exploring outside, playing with rocks and learning about animals. His favorite stuffed animals are Piggy, Bear, Woof Woof Dog and George Monkey and he loves to give them big hugs.
He has such a loving spirit, Samuel will stop playing, walk over to you, and just give you a big hug and kiss. He will make a great big brother to your child!
We live in a two story house in a smaller suburb of a major metropolitan area. We even have a small vegetable garden in our backyard. We love that our city has a small town feel. We can walk to many parks, the library and good places to eat. The schools are all "exemplary" and your child will have one of the best educations. Our friends all have small children or are pregnant so they will have many friends to play with.
- Love your child unconditionally
- Provide a safe and joyful home
- Fill their life with loving and supportive friends and family
- Provide a good education and develop their talents and gifts
- Provide a Christian faith and spiritual foundation
We are so excited to partner with you along this journey. We would be privileged to get to know you and be a part of your life. Thank you for creating an adoption plan; it is the most selfless act for a mother. We promise to tell your child about his mother's generous heart and amazing love. Thank you for getting to know us and considering us to be adoptive parents. We will be in constant prayer for you and your beautiful baby.
