We are a mixed family, mostly white American and Vietnamese. We love adventures outdoors and time together.
Adoption is our chosen route to parenthood. Even if there is a chance we could get pregnant I would love to be that home that a child that we didn't give birth to needs.
For our current comfort level we would love to have some communication with the birth parent(s) and would consider most levels of communication.
We are open to adopting multiple children if the opportunity presents itself.
We understand that the child's cultural background is important as they seek to figure out who they are. Therefore, we are happy to research or even learn another language to introduce to the child.
We cannot claim to know what you might be going through or what circumstances have lead you here. All that we can surmise is that you are considering (even briefly) entrusting your child to us. For that, we are grateful.

Who We Are
We met in Physics class at Community college and moved in together about 6 months later while attending University. That was 10 years ago and we’ve been together since. We’ve visited Viet’s family in Vietnam many times and have brought his parents over to live with us while they establish citizenship and earn money at their jobs. Citizenship will allow them ease of travel between countries as they visit us and Viet’s sister in Australia. We intend to visit Vietnam every few years or so.
We like to be outdoors in nature and love adventures especially when the temperatures go above 50°F. We go hiking and camping a few times a year and often go boogieboarding with Celest’s mother on the coast. Every year Celest’s mother sets up a family vacation, usually on the coast.
We enjoy growing food in our yard along with Viet’s parents who live with us. We also try to implement native plants when and where we can.
We are a bilingual family and are open to teaching our child a 3rd at the request of the birth parents. We understand the importance of cultural heritage while growing up and discovering one’s self.
