Who We Are

Hi, this is Ra and Ayano. We are water-loving "Fire Dragons" living in Coastal VA. Ayano is Japanese. Ra is African-American. We have a lot of love to give and are hoping to adopt The One.

We met in December, 2014. Early on in our partnership, we defined our core values as: Adventure, Deep Connection, and Family. Our motto is, ‘Love is strength!’ We cherish these so much that we had them inscribed on our wedding rings. As we envisioned, we have been sharing many adventures, cultivating our understanding of each other, and nurturing our relationships with friends and family. Recently, we have added ‘Love transcends’ to our motto. Through our experiences, we’ve learned love really does transcend any differences, limitations, and obstacles. It really touches our hearts when we experience or witness it.

In February, 2016, we both said “I do” to the commitment to each other and the companionship in life. We love the life we have been building together in Virginia. Both of us are working remotely at home, and when the wind is good, we go kiteboarding in our neighborhood or drive a few hours south to North Carolina. Other times, we bicycle, hike, stroll on a beach, or just chillax at home. We enjoy listening to good tunes, watching movies and Formula 1 races, and having interesting conversations.

Adoption Diary

Escaping the cold to Key West

We escaped the cold and drove South, to Key West! The water was clear, the weather was gorgeous, the town was charming; we really enjoyed the time there.
We met a couple on a sunset cruise and they told us they had a 18 month old baby at home and they already missed him. It was comforting to hear that they enjoyed the baby so much that they would prefer to have the baby with them. We look forward to taking the child there some day!

Cheers to 7 Years!

This weekend we celebrated the 7th anniversary of our first date!

Having been cooped up in the house for some days, this was the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy a nice day and some dinner. This time, we drove across the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel to Norfolk and walked around for a bit and then found a nice restaurant. What a lovely, chill day we had. We’re grateful to be alive and together!

Can you believe our first date was a blind date?!! We met online, chatted for a few days over txt, and then went out to dinner. Ra fell in complete love as soon as Ayano walked in the door. He always says it was like he was looking at a real life glamour shot.
