Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. We know you have a lot of choices in your search for a family, and we are grateful you are considering us. We want you to know that, as parents, we will love your child unconditionally every day of our lives.


About Brad

I was born in San Diego and attended Cal State Fullerton in Orange County. My mother and father are both retired and enjoy spending time with their grandchildren. I have one sister and one brother.

My sister and her husband have two kids (8 & 5) whom we spend a lot of time with. My niece and nephew are very excited to have a cousin.

I’ve worked in the technology industry for 17 years.


I enjoy spending time with my family, snow skiing, hiking, and most of all traveling. I’ve always dreamed of being able to walk through our front door and have my child run up to me and be excited daddy is home.

About Elana

I was born in Los Angeles. I have one younger brother, Steve. He is now married and has a child, Ben, whom we adore.


He is two years old and calls me Aunie (for Auntie). I went to San Diego for college and stayed there for quite some time. I started teaching, and then moved to the Bay Area in 2009. I’ve now been teaching for 11 years, the last nine years in kindergarten.

I’m really enjoying that grade level. Some of my favorite things to do are reading, listening to music, laughing and traveling. I feel like I am a kid at heart, and can’t wait for the opportunity to teach, laugh with, and love a child of our own.


About Us


We are both from Southern California, but we met in the Bay Area, which is where we live now. We both moved here for work. We own two homes in Southern California, and hope one day to move back.

Here in the Bay Area we live in Campbell, a nice suburban town near San Jose, with a cute downtown within walking distance. There are lots of trees, parks, and walking trails.

In our free time we like to watch movies, see friends, go out to dinner, and take day trips to places like Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Francisco.

We are very close to our families. We really enjoy hanging out with our nephews and niece, and have been told they are anxiously awaiting some cousins.

Both of our parents have been together for over 40 years. They are extremely kind and generous, and would gladly welcome more grandchildren.

We know we would make great parents because we are both very caring. We're really down to earth and get along well with everyone. We are ready to shower a child with love and build a family.

Thank you again for your time.
