Mike and Kevin
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about us and our dream of growing our family. We are honored that you are considering us as your child’s adoptive parents. Please know that if you decide to choose us, your child will be loved unconditionally in a safe, fun, and educational home. She or he will be encouraged to achieve each and every one of his/her dreams.
We are Mike and Kevin. Seven years ago, we met through friends in our running club. That meeting blossomed into a wonderful and committed relationship.
Together, we enjoy doing many things such as concerts, theater, cooking dinner with friends, and running with our running club. We have been fortunate enough to travel to Africa, Australia, Europe, and Asia, as well as many places in the U.S. We love exploring new places and experiencing different cultures.
We also enjoy staying local with skiing and hiking nearby. Because we have two very sweet dogs, we often invite friends over for dinner or game nights so that the dogs can enjoy company too!
Mike was raised in Tucson, Arizona by his loving parents and his wonderful maternal grandmother. Mike was a lot younger than his two brothers, but enjoyed tagging along with them. Through college and graduate school, Mike combined his love of plants with his love of teaching. He moved to Los Angeles to teach about plants at a big museum. Mike really enjoys running and music, and he also likes crossword puzzles and dancing. He has run many marathons and runs relay races with teams of runners who take turns running over the course of 24 hours. Mike also enjoys mixing music as a DJ as well as mixing food in the kitchen discovering new recipes. Mike’s schedule allows him the flexibility to stay at home for the first couple of years to provide a nurturing environment for our child.
Kevin’s thoughts on Mike
One of Mike's most incredible attributes is his selflessness. He's always concerned about the well being of everyone around him. If there is someone in need, Mike is always the first to be there. He is very giving of his time and volunteers with multiple organizations and has been recognized many times as an outstanding volunteer with different charities. Mike will be a wonderful father, and I am looking forward to starting this journey with him.
Kevin was raised in Honolulu, Hawaii by his caring parents. As an only child, Kevin was surrounded by a big extended family of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Kevin frequently visits friends and family in Hawaii, and he hopes to share the spirit of Aloha and friendly Hawaiian culture with our child. Kevin’s college and medical training took him to California. During his schooling, he was fortunate to experience living abroad in Japan and doing medical research in Washington, DC. Kevin has always looked forward to having children and is excited for that wonderful next step.
Mike’s thoughts on Kevin
Kevin is calm, caring, smart, funny and handsome. I’m a lucky guy. Being from Hawaii, he brings a lot of sunshine with him to everyone that he knows. Kevin is very intelligent and hardworking. As an eye surgeon, he has done volunteer work in free clinics in areas of need in Los Angeles, and he also has done charity medical work in places such as the Philippines and Southeast Asia. In his job, he takes care of people everyday, and I know he would do anything to take care of his family.
Family & Friends
Our family and friends mean everything to us. We are fortunate to have loving, supportive families in our lives who are excited about us becoming parents. Mike’s brother, Tim, and his wife, Maggie, are expecting a baby later this year. Kevin has six cousins in Los Angeles all with children so there are a lot of little cousins to play with.
We also are blessed with a wonderful set of close friends that really are a part of our extended family. Many of our friends are raising children of their own, and we really enjoy playing with them, reading to them, and taking them out for ice cream.
Our Home and Community
We live in a comfortable house in Los Angeles complete with two dogs, Junior and Sister. It is a very safe community with one of the best elementary schools in the city within walking distance. There is a lake that people jog and push strollers around, a dog park, and a wonderful recreation center and playground walking distance from our house.
