All About Jeffrey & Reginald

Hello! We are Jeffrey and Reggie, a loving couple looking to start a family.  We have both wanted to be parents all our lives.  We both love kids and have focused our careers around them.  We have great respect and admiration for the decision you are making.  We would love the opportunity to get to know you and your hopes for your child’s future.  Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and our dream of growing our family.

Why Adoption?

We would love to be parents and we find it a blessing to be able to provide a child a nurturing and safe home.  We know there are families who want to provide a child with stability and better opportunities.  We feel we are surrounded by a supportive community and possess the necessary tools to raise a happy, well-rounded, and healthy child.

Family & Home

We live in Benicia, California - a quiet, tight-knit community outside of San Francisco.  We bought our home because of the outdoor space, proximity to friends and family, and the highly-sought-after schools where Jeffrey currently works.  Our nieces and nephews love swinging on our swingset and running around with our dog.  We love being so close to the beach, the mountains, and San Francisco which are all a short drive away!

As with many Filipino families, Reggie’s family and friends all live close by.  Reggie’s parents still live in the house they raised their kids in which is about 15 minutes away.  His siblings and their families have also stayed close in the surrounding cities.  Jeffrey’s family lives in Michigan and we visit them multiple times a year.  We have forged a community of friends close by as well.

How others describe me

Jeffrey is the most loving partner with the kindest soul.  I am very lucky to call him my husband.  He grew up in Michigan with strong midwest values.  He comes from a close and loving family.  He is goal-oriented and works hard in all aspects of his life.  He comes from a long line of teachers and being around kids is very natural for him.  He is a good communicator and is also easy to talk to.  He has a lot of love in his heart for all living things.  He is the type of person that can brighten your day with just a smile! 

Reggie is the voice of reason, and the one family and friends rely on for guidance and comfort.  His gentle and calm nature allows others to feel comfortable.  He is an amazing uncle with an extremely playful, outgoing and reassuring presence.  His infectious smile warms a room, and his intelligence is masked by humility.  Reggie is always willing to compromise and see other’s perspectives.  Most importantly, he has the biggest heart and will always make sure you feel loved. 

how we met

How We Met

We met online 8 years ago when we were both living in Los Angeles.  With our busy schedules, however, it took almost a year to finally go on our first date! The wait was well worth it as we have been inseparable since.  Our shared family values and love for children have kept us close together.  We now live in the Bay Area, close to family and friends, in a beautiful home with our spoiled great dane, Brahms.  We love to travel, host game nights, try new restaurants, and go hiking with our dog.

Advice to Future Child

Know that you were brought into this world with love and that you have forever changed our lives.  Always feel free to be who you want to be and shine bright like the amazing superstar you are!

Perspectives on Open Adoption

We welcome the opportunity for a child to know his/her birth mother.  We feel that open adoptions only help a child grow to their full potential.
