Phil and Filip

Dear Expectant Mother,

We are Phil & Filip (yes, we do have the same name)! We have been together for 15 years and have built a strong relationship based on love, trust, humor, and kindness. We have been blessed with stable careers, loving families, and our adopted son, but we are longing to find the final piece of our family. We admire you for making this difficult decision. We promise you that your child will be welcomed by two caring parents and an adoring big brother (who’s been asking for a sibling :-)

We are a multicultural family. Our children will grow up with Portuguese, Spanish, English and Serbian spoken in our home, learning about each of those cultures. We’ll share home-cooked meals in between regular playtime outdoors in our diverse and family-oriented neighborhood of Redwood City, a Silicon Valley town 30 miles south of San Francisco. We have been blessed with stable jobs in science and engineering, and Filip is excited to take a year off from work to be a stay-at-home dad. We are committed to creating a nurturing environment and providing opportunities so that our child can grow, and explore his or her interests fully.

Who We Are

We met on the first day of graduate school—but it was another five years before we ran into each other again—literally—since we collided while jogging around the university campus! After reconnecting, we started running together and realized that we had much more in common than just our names. We both studied science and were excited to use our skills to help find cures to disease. We love adventure— whether exploring new cultures abroad, or through new recipes in the kitchen. At home, our favorite thing to do is play hide and seek
with our adopted son Miko. We also love relaxing with friends and family on our porch over home-cooked meals and tasty desserts. We love the outdoors — running, biking, swimming, and hiking in the Sierras. We are excited to share the beauty of nature with our children.

Our son Miko has brought us so much love and joy, and we cannot wait to share this love with another child. Miko adores other children and will be an energetic and affectionate older brother!


We really developed our parenting philosophy when we became parents. We believe in teaching our child to love, care and respect those around them. We welcome open and honest communication and take active part in our child’s development interests. For example, Filip does weekly soccer practice with Miko, while Phil takes him to art class.

We also believe in the power of education to help children build self-confidence and understand the world around them. We both love to travel, and we think exploring other cultures will teach our children tolerance and compassion, values that are dear to us. In particular, we would ensure that our children speak at least one foreign language (likely Spanish) and use it to connect to the world.
