We met in May of 2017. There was an immediate connection between us, and over the span of a couple months of long talks, lots of laughter and many adventures, we fell deeply in love. Daniel proposed in February of 2018 on a rooftop overlooking all of Los Angeles, and Victory was simply overjoyed. A few months later, we gathered with close friends and family for an intimate backyard ceremony. We made vows before God and our loved ones, and we danced the night away! The foundation of our relationship is our shared faith, and due to that, we feel our relationship is a gift, and we work to preserve our bond every day. We’ve loved being a family of two, and are ready and excited to become a family of three!
Our life centers around our faith, family & friends, travel, nature, art, cinema, and fun! Victory has always dreamed of adopting since she was young, and Daniel has had a first-hand account of watching his brother and sister-in-law build their family through the adoption of two little girls. We can’t express how excited we are to become parents, and raise your child surrounded by unconditional love, alongside cousins who share a similar experience. Not only that - two of our best friends are in the process of adopting, so your child would be surrounded by lots of other adoptees!
It's our hope to create an open adoption plan, whether that means sending letters and photos, or in-person visits - we're open! Know that if you decide to place your child with us, she/he will grow up in a home filled with encouragement and opportunities to pursue her/his hopes and dreams. We promise to model what it means to love and respect others, and to surround your child with diverse cultural influences, and a community of caring family and friends.
The thing that is most important to us, is the family culture we create. We want you to know that your child will grow up in a home where big and little wins are celebrated, and where a loss or hard day is met with a listening ear and a warm hug. Our home is a place full of love, peace, creativity, warmth and fun, where all feelings, good or bad, are encouraged to be shared and will be respected. Your child will have boundaries to keep her/him safe, and while she/he will never be expected to be perfect, she/he will be expected to do her/his personal best in all things. Our family is a safe place where imagination is encouraged, big dreams are championed and love is the most important thing.
We share a 1920’s bungalow in the neighborhood of Silver Lake with our scrappy dog Mabel (who, in dog years, is old enough to be our grandma) however, Mabel will always be our ‘baby’ girl! Home is our place of rest and comfort. Our bungalow is where we recharge, and host loved ones for celebrations of all kinds. The surrounding neighborhood is incredibly family friendly. We live within walking distance of two parks, a playground, basketball courts and a jogging path that circles the Silver Lake Reservoir. We're deeply rooted in our network of friends and family who live nearby; many of whom also have small children. Your child will be welcomed with open hearts by our community of loved ones who are almost as excited as we are!
One of the reasons we love Los Angeles is that it provides countless culturally enriching opportunities, and so many avenues to connect with nature. We're a stone's throw from farmers markets, museums, botanical gardens, nature trails, beaches, live music and theatre shows, sporting events, and libraries - just to name just a few! We're so excited to provide a life full of opportunity, so that your child has the chance to see, learn and do anything she/he takes interest in.
